I pray everyone is doing well during this time of adversity in our county. We have had many times in past history that has tested us as a nation and together we have always been victorious as a society. I have been sheltered in place at home as much as possible during this Covid-19 epidemic that has swept the world. Although we have seen many viruses and sickness throughout world history, this one is particularly nasty.

These viruses come out of left field like a tornado many times. Like a tornado they come quickly when you’re not ready for it. They sweep across the land in a torrent of confusion and can affect everyone. Impossible to stop you basically have to get out of its way or be consumed by it. It leaves destruction in its path and devastation among us to clean up.

I had some type of flu a couple weeks ago. I don’t know what I had, a regular flu or Covid-19. It wasn’t fun and I’m still getting over it. Tried to go to the doctor and they told me to go to the emergency room. Called my local hospital, they said unless I couldn’t breathe well to stay home and away from people. No one really wanted me. The news was very confusing to watch. They would come up with something new to do hour by hour. We just weren’t ready for it like most emergencies we encounter in life. The people who prepped for this type of situation, don’t seem too stupid now do they. Don’t be too quick to think that the government can save you from a disaster. They do the best they can, but have their limitations.

This virus moves very quickly as we are all seeing and is highly contagious with its spread. One of the major problems is that people are all responding to it differently. It’s a little scary that some people don’t hardly have any symptoms at all and some people go down very quickly. It’s like a roll of the dice. So everyone stay safe and practice staying away from people as much as possible and this to will pass.

Keep the Faith!
