Today’s quote struck me.
It makes me think about this pandemic that is our current reality. If we do the things the CDC has recommended, we will help to flatten the curve. But if we do nothing and live life like we did pre- March 12th the world as we know it may completely collapse.
The health care system needs us to do our part- First responders need us to do our part- Service workers need us to do our part- social distancing, only buy what we need (no hoarding, please!) wash our hands, stay home when we are sick, etc. The list may be longer depending on where you live.
I was going stir crazy yesterday, and the sun was out. I can’t imagine what it will be like on a rainy day. But, I will continue to do my part; stay at home, call people to make sure they are okay, check in with teachers and families, wash my hands, just to name a few.
If we go to hug someone, we can pull back. If we buy too much food we can share with a neighbor; we can “edit the page.” If we do nothing, if we keep doing the things the same way we always had, if we have a “blank page”…. I don’t want to think about it.
