We have entered Month Six since the World Health Organization’s March 12 announcement of the Covid-19 pandemic. To put it mildly, it has been a whirlwind for everyone ever since. Vaccines are in clinical trials, people are working from home, students are adapting to virtual classrooms, online shopping has gone through the roof, and essential workers continue to work beyond the call of duty. For those who take the virus seriously, face coverings are part of our daily attire, we wash our hands religiously, and we social distance when out in public – to safeguard against the spread.

Sadly, too many Americans have died needlessly. And deniers of the coronavirus who lie in ICUs fighting for their lives regret that they didn’t pay better attention. Those who went to parties or bars brought home the virus that infected family members. Real men have cried.

I looked back at the beginning of my diary and early photos. It was spring. Flowers were in colorful bloom – perhaps to remind us that we will get through the fight against Covid. We can only hope this is true.

The adage, “A picture is worth a thousand words,” couldn’t be more fitting than now.

Wearing a Mask + Washing Hands + Social Distancing = Saving Lives

Thanks, Athena! These are hard times, for sure! Two weeks ago I was added to the many people who have lost their jobs due to Covid. The news is overwhelmingly awful. I need to remember to always read your blog - always a ray of hope in often tough times!
