Scary, Uncertain Times

Posted by Carla Wesolowski on Sat 28th Mar 2020 6:11pm

This thing with the coronavirus feels so BIG, like our civilization is careening out of control.  As of this moment, the United States has more confirmed cases of the coronavirus than any other nation.  It's serious business; people are dying and the economy has essentially shut down. Schools have closed and working parents are scrambling for child care.  It's a scary, uncertain time!  When I feel my mind spinning with anxious worries, I try to focus on some positive things that are going on.  For instance, it's nice to see communities coming together - not together, together due to the need for social distancing, but coming together in an effort to stop the virus from spreading.  Generally speaking, I think most people are trying to do their part.  I've seen a lot of good come out in people lately.  I have two neighbors who always call to see if I need something from the store when they're going shopping.  And there are countless stories of nurses, doctors, and other essential workers who are going above and beyond right now to provide care and to keep society intact.  I just pray for everyone who has the virus, I pray for their families, I pray for the healthcare providers, and I pray that this pandemic is over soon.
