What a sad state of affairs! The coronavirus has played havoc with our lives, and no one knows how long this will continue. With everything closing (church, senior center, restaurants, etc.), I feel as if I’m a prisoner in my own home. Nevertheless, I thank God that I am healthy, and I pray that I will continue to be so. I pray for you also.
I hope that no politician is so crass as to make political capital out of this mess. No one appears to be at blame for the contagion, and everyone is evidently doing their very best to contain it. I will not fault the efforts of our national and state governments, and I wish everyone would give them credit for exerting a maximum effort fight the disease and its devastating effect upon our economy.
Our older and sicklier citizens are in greatest danger. If it were not for their particular vulnerability, we might be able to treat this pandemic much as we treat the common flu. Nevertheless, the virus is different and poses an especially serious threat to our senior citizens. I therefore support the draconian methods being used to bring it under control.
Let us pray that this health crisis soon passes.
