Ring-A-Ring-O-Roses!

wp-1585500268612.jpgI think it’s safe to say not enough is known about the corona virus. Is it airborne or contact or is it both? Also, it feels like there is a true “Typhoid Mary” element to this.
Does the strategies to contain this carry a hint of “ring a ring o roses, pocket full of posies…”?

We are flailing in the wind. There are believers and non believers. As the politicians do battle, argue, verbally assault each other – it does what it does. Kill people!

  1. This jumps out at me: “As the politicians do battle, argue, verbally assault each other – it does what it does. Kill people!” Why don’t they understand every moment is precious and will save lives?

  2. BRAVO, very well done, Pat!! It does feel like Typhoid Mary…or a Biblical plague/pestilence, though I don’t hold with those who say God is “punishing” us. I’m choosing faith over fear–and I’m not politically astute, so I can’t fathom how a pandemic becomes political. Everyone should work together to stop, cure, heal it–so we can all move forward…breathing normally and hugging one another again. Blessings and health to you and your family ❤
