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.
One thought on “Coronavirus”
Dad, this whole event has been surreal, like an episode of “Twilight Zone” or a futuristic science fiction story. As our family has walked through these weeks, however, the details of reality are becoming less strange and more like a chapter in history.
I grew up amid stories from the Great Depression and World WarII. I lived through the Sixties Generation and the Cold War. Now our children’s world is shaped by 9/11 and the Covid Pandemic.
Each period is unique. Each has its tragedies and its heroes. God is still in Heaven, and people will continue to muddle through here on Earth. It no longer seems unreal, just historic.
