Thursday Thoughts: The Last Two Years

Two years ago, the world was starting to see the affects of a new coronavirus. It travelled rapidly around the world, despite attempts to quell the spread. We washed our hands, wiped down our purchases, donned masks, stayed at home, severed physical ties with friends and family, begged governments to take action, then fought over personal rights and freedoms.

We lost our sports and entertainment, but more importantly, we lost many people. Hospitals ran out of capacity and staff. Lockdowns and restrictions came fast and furious, putting many in such and uproar that governments were pressured to loosen them prematurely, leading to spikes in infections.

Now? The fully vaccinated are still wearing masks, our governments are advising us to limit our contacts and travel, doing what they can to vaccinate more of the population. Countries are experiencing fourth and fifth waves, often more deadly than the previous ones. People are again rethinking their holiday gatherings.

To quote the great philosopher, Charles Brown: “Good grief.”

One thought on “Thursday Thoughts: The Last Two Years

  1. Covid19 has wrecked places around the world, left people depressed and fighting to live. We’re still hopeful though that it will get behind us in history. And even if it doesn’t, then that we’ll find a way of living with it peacefully like other viruses that were much dreaded in the past. We just keep hoping for better days. 💖
