The pandemic

Let me tell you about the pending pandemic that’s about to strike our land. It’s been a few weeks now since the news fill our lives have started to change. Our jobs, future, savings, children’s education, and health are all at stake. Everything is changing in a daily basis. Sometimes hourly. And we don’t know for sure when it’ll all end. People are scared. Many are scrambling around trying to figure things out. Students and adults are homeless. Not because they are careless, but because some they were working on their future. Some had jobs that didn’t require them to have a “home” per say. They had dorm rooms and crash pads. Now with a sudden loss on job and financial stability many are displaced. In addition, the country is now facing a huge health pandemic. The healthcare system is collapsing before our very eyes. So many are sick and depending. So many of died with no funeral dates set. Birthday celebrations are on hold, weddings and graduations have been cancelled. Babies can’t get the check up they needs. Seniors are being abandoned. It’s a true test of community and unity.

Despite warnings stating there’s no need to panic on the news. Things seem rather different out here in the real world. People are scrambling to find and store food for the wave of disaster that’s about to it. Government organizations are closing down without notifying the public. People are in panic mode and they have every right to be. No one knows when schools will really be opened. Or when those who got laid off will return to work or if they will. We are on the brink of a recession. Talk about roaring twenties uh? Many are saying conspiracy theories. Some are stating biblical claims. No one knows for certain. But what we do know is this. Things are indefinitely changing. Nothing will ever be the safe again. Now is the time to start making different plans about the future. To unite as family and friends. To check on your neighbors and elderly. To be kind. Practice patience, manners, and to be grateful for the little things. Put your pride away and focus on survival. Don’t hoard, share. Exchange goods and services to help each other out. Be vigilant. Pay attention. Read, learn, and prepare. Take necessary precautions to keep yourself and your family safe and ok. And don’t ever think you know what’s coming next because no one does. All we can do is hope, pray, and love. ❤️

  1. Totally agree. We can only do our best to prepare for the what’s to come but no matter how scary the threat may be, we never forget human kindness through sharing & thoughtfulness. It saddens me every time people hoard & leave shelves empty not caring of what happens to others who may not have anything at all.

    1. Thank you for reading my article. And I agree with you wholeheartedly, human kindness is very important in times like this. We have to keep showing compassion no matter what obstacle we face as a country.
