Kate Garraway's problems are something she's got to deal with, just like we all do. |
My cousin has colon cancer, my brother-in-law has asthma, a pacemaker, and fungal meningitis. My D.I.L. is a severe alcoholic. Sixty thousand people died last year of The Flu, just the regular flu. Thirty-six thousand people in this country died from car crashes in the last year.
A riding friend has bad blood clots in his legs, and the odds are he won't make it until Christmas. I don't even know what to say to him. Another riding friend had an aneurysm behind his knee, and before they could save it, he lost his leg from the knee down.
These things happen every day, millions of times. Something like it is going to happen to you, and it's going to happen to me.
So how did the Wuhan Flu become a reason to destroy people's lives, to destroy the economy, to isolate old folks to die alone, to tell people they can't celebrate life, death, births together?
I don't want colon cancer, but I don't ruin my life in abject fear that I might get it. And I don't want COVID, but I'm not going to stop living life because I'm afraid of it, I don't care how many stories I can see on the internet ...
What happened to us? Our ancestors faced things a hundred times worse than this, but they didn't go bananas and let it run their lives.
