It’s Memorial Day weekend. Thinking of those who have fallen serving the country on this holiday, it’s not lost on me that more Americans have been killed by the coronavirus in last three months than the Vietnam War, Gulf War, Afghanistan War, and Iraq War combined.
The ugly truth is that more people will die from the pandemic. As disheartening as that may sound, it’s a personal truth that we must confront and reflect upon. Much have changed since it began, and it’s far from over.
The experience has been difficult. Not only for those who have been infected but also everyone else. I am more sullen with less motivation. What irks me more than ever are the political finger pointing, insensitive commercialism, and lost of human interaction.
Surely, this is not the end. Nor are we regressing to the lowest level in the Maslow’s hierarchy. But an opportunity to remind ourselves that human spirit lives on – we are in this together and will get through it together.
Stay safe & have a nice week.
