It is okay to be concerned but not healthy to be obsessed
You can't say the word "pandemic" without a feeling of panic. We all need to be concerned and follow the instructions of our health department. When you see images of our beaches being crowded, you know that there are lots of people not following the rules that are necessary to minimize the massive spread of the covid19 virus. Businesses that are forced to shut down, are concerned about the economic struggles they will face. So why are people defeating the purpose of the closures? If twenty percent of the population are going around spreading the virus then the effort eighty percent who did close was for nothing. We need to close our free beaches just like we closed businesses even though we know how bad economically it will hurt them. We need to enforce the rules that were set to protect all of us. Now with that being said. We all should be concerned about it but it is not healthy for us to be obsessed about it. We all must work together to stop the spread of the corona19 virus. Together as one nation we can reduce the suffering and deaths from it. It takes ALL of us not eighty percent of us, to fight the war against the covid19 virus. Learn to have fun at home and stay home. We started playing card games and board games that we hadn't played in years. We even broke out the home movies to distract us from constantly obsessing over what unknowns lie ahead for any of us. Please stay safe and follow the instructions of our health departments.
