My amazingly talented friend Life Alchemist-Darlene Versak has an article published on Rebelle Society!!
Here's some nourishment for your soul:
"The world as we knew it ended. COVID-19 seemingly came from nowhere. A highly contagious virus that spread across and around the globe exponentially. It is a historic event. A defining point in history that affects everyone in this world. History will be written about the actions occurring in the present time. For the United States, 9/11 would be the closed point of history previous to this. The world would change in unimaginable ways as a result of germs that sickened, and in some cases killed people. History is written by the survivors and the people in power.
What will be said about us? Who are we? What will emerge to define this generation of human beings who faced an unseen enemy that could be anywhere (in people, on surfaces) that took some and left others? No one would be left unscathed. Suffering occurred physically for some and mentally for others, however this event is affecting everyone.
In a very short amount of time, our economy and how people make money has been upended. How people live their lives will be changed from this time forward. The grocery stores, pharmacies and life-sustaining businesses are the allowed economy now. We are living in a pandemic. A pandemic is defined as “a disease prevalent over a whole country or world.” We have been asked to stay home to avoid the spread of the virus. Social distancing (staying six feet away from other humans and avoiding contact) is the catchphrase of the day.
We share eye contact and smiles. Maybe a few words, if we choose to, but that is all. Wash your hands is today’s mantra. We face the biggest decision of our lives. What do we believe?
Love or fear?"
