“What a time to be alive.” – Drake
For us as a species, as generations who never witnessed anything like this, it feels almost unreal. I usually don’t like talking about what’s the hot topic, but this is a scary topic. I remember reading about disease’s with no cure during their time in text books: leper, plague, small pox. Now we will go down in text books, even as a super advanced civilization in comparison we’re still very much human…
I’m genuinely afraid to leave my house, (I’m sure the feeling is mutual with anyone reading this). If I touch the door knob to enter my apartment building my immediate move is to wash my hands. My fear is getting loved ones sick than becoming sick myself, selfishly my biggest fear than that is having to go into quarantine which is just another word for “house arrest” if you ask me. I love my freedom so much and I would hate to lose it because of this illness.
Yet here we’re slowly losing it without even realizing, no longer being able to celebrate, entertain, worship, interact, work, etc the way we normally do. Social distancing is for our benefit, however I can’t help to experience a bit of loss at those measures. Yet I’m at war with myself because as much as I love my freedom, I believe it’s better to overreact than under react in situation like these.
There is a silver lining: No matter where you are in this world we’re going through this together and we’re brought together with our struggles another beauty of being human.
