The Inside SEER: November in 2020
By Pete Gardner
November is usually a month of colorful falling leaves and happy family gatherings, with Thanksgiving being the main event. However, as we all know now, this November is quite different, full of stress for the most part and difficult times. The virus is running amuck and with more strict guidelines on staying safe, it’s getting very hard to enjoy life as we know it.
Along with that is the 2020 election. This one seems to be hovering around with questionable endings and the non-cooperation of government politicians from both sides of the aisle. Confusion, differing information from the press, and various opinions from people in government adds much to the anxiety and stress of our country and its population. As citizens all we can do is try to stay patient and support positive thinking and promote progress when progress is made. For instance, there are many companies working their hardest to produce a safe and effective vaccine. As of the time of this writing, one company has released information that they have produced a vaccine that is 90% effective for the Coronavirus. If that is true and works out to be safe, it may be a segue to the normal life style that we have come to know in our country and around the world.
With all that being said, as we have to deal with challenges of the virus and confusion in government, I want to wish all of you the best. I know we can and will get through all of this, and we will get back to a normal life. This is the United States of America and that is something to be proud of.
