Week In Review – 18 Oct 2020

The pandemic is on the rise. Not only in US but also worldwide. Unfortunately, we lead the world in the numbers of infected and dead (8.1M and 219K respectively). Not knowing when will it all end, many are hit by Covid-19 fatigue. Good to remind ourselves that the pandemic is not a sprint but a marathon. Need to pace ourselves to the finish.

Speaking of pacing, wife and I took a belated trip to Chicago to celebrate our wedding anniversary.  Our first trip since the Coronavirus and a bit of reaching out for us.  It was quite an eye opener to see how travelers and business deal with the pandemic. And the impact to both is quite significant.

Winston Churchill said in 1942, over two years before the end of World War II after the African campaign and the Brits won in Africa that, “This is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. It is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”  He did not sugarcoat his message for the same reason of wanting to pace his people.

However, parallel realities do exist, and people are going to believe whatever they want.  Take the two events happened this week for examples: Columbus Day and Amazon Prime Day. To each his own.  All in one package of what I attributed to as the price of democracy.  So do exercise your right, duty, and vote.

Stay safe & have a nice week.
