the covid blues
I was recently reading the commentary of a well-known thinker talking about Covid. I have to admit I was disappointed when she stated, “Of course, we’ll all get it sooner or later” referring to what she sees as the inevitability of each and every one of us coming down with the condition.
Personally, I find that kind of defeatism disturbing. Why throw in the towel without a fight? Surely we shouldn’t just assume a disease can have its way with us despite what we might do to avoid it.
In my case, I’ve had 5 vaccines against Covid, where a mask in public places and avoid crowds where possible. Perhaps, as a result, I’m one of the few people I know who hasn’t come down with this damn pandemic.
Not looking for any awards here: just hopeful that optimism might prevail!
