Considering how highly contagious the coronavirus truly is and how late in the pandemic agenda the public learned about its existence and quarantine was ordered. I say: In the grand scheme of things we are all lucky or should I moreso, say we’re blessed to be well and alive.
I mean when you look at the big picture; when you think about the possibility of just how many asymptomatic, but infected people we all may have unknowingly encountered before quarantine. The truth of it is; it’s scary. That’s why I say we’re all blessed because luck, nor a mere game of chance can’t carry you this far. A virus is no respecter of persons. Why some got sick and others did not? I do not know for we all walked around for weeks and countered who knows how many sick or asymptomatic people and some thing kept it at bay. What? I don’t know, but whatever kept millions from getting sick is something to think about; therefore in the grand sum of things, I say those who didn’t contact it were blessed.
I know this sounds like something John Donne would’ve said in the Middle Ages during the bubonic plague, but I think there comes a time in life we’ve to face the possibly that there’s still things about the functions of life and our world we do not understand and be willing to drop our ego and say we do not understand.
