Today is April Fool’s Day, but the Coronavirus is no joke! I’ve seen the footage of young people partying in Florida on Spring Break. I’ve also seen the footage of people congregating in large groups to see the cherry blossoms in Washington, DC. Hello people!!! We have a crisis here that calls for individuals to think more of others and less of themselves – a call for humility. Those partying in Florida, went back home after Spring Break and now run the risk of giving this virus to their parents and/or grandparents. People congregating in large groups place themselves at higher risk of contracting this pandemic of a disease.
Coronavirus – Call to Action
Everyone needs to follow the latest advice put out by the White House. To get that advice, click here. To learn more about the impact of the Coronavirus on everyday life, click here. This information will give you the latest from the Center for Disease Control (CDC). And finally, I place my own call to action out to each and every one of you: Do not place others in danger. Some people contract the Coronavirus and show no symptoms. However, they can still give the virus to others, especially those at high risk. So, embrace social distancing, and wash your hands frequently.
Embrace the virtues of humility and caring, kindness and compassion, at this difficult time. Together, we will work our way through to the other side of this pandemic. And when we do, we can laugh, hug, and socialize with each other. But, until then, stay safe and follow the guidance of the scientists, for it is they who will guide us to a healthier environment.
