I know you all are familiar with the current worldwide pandemic, COVID-19. Perhaps some of you are affected directly by it, while most of us are feeling the indirect affects and results of it. Nearly every pro sports league has suspended activities for the time being, churches also. The church I belong to has suspended all meetings worldwide in the wake of this pandemic. Even local colleges (most of them here) and schools have either suspended classes to online or suspended associated school sponsored classes.
There have been deaths; sickness is spreading. It’s unfortunate.
Currently my employer has advised all personnel to take home their laptops every night, pending a likely telework (yet to be determined) schedule going forward.
Look, I’m not in panic mode. I’m not “worried.” I am concerned, however. This is affecting my kids, our way of life. Everyone’s way of life. I have a mother who has preexisting conditions that something like this could likely kill her.
So, why am I writing this? Maybe to get it all off my chest. Maybe to ramble and talk about it in some sort of formal release. I’ve spoken out openly on panic, I’ve even tried to downplay this a bit.
Here, I can write about it without all of that.
Please, to all my followers; to all my friends; Be safe. Be healthy. Be aware. Be smart.
Most of all, be well.
