Hi y’all! How is everything? I’ve forgotten how many weeks it’s been now, although I’ve definitely been out a little bit more in the past few weeks, with masks and gloves on. Oddly, I’ve adapted to it a little bit now, found a sort-of routine and forced myself to stick to parts of it most of the time.
This week, I wanted to get a lot more serious than I’ve been in the past, so it’s going to get heavy, and many of you might want to disagree, but I thought it’d be pertinent to talk about this because of where we find ourselves in this moment of time. I’ve been wondering for the past two months, how is it that in 2020, more than a hundred years after the last pandemic, we’re basically not much better off than our counterparts in 1918? And how is it, that despite having a pandemic pop up once every 100 years or so since we’ve basically learned to document history, we find ourselves in a situation caused directly due to our sense of invincibility?
