    Coronavirus Taught Me

    By on April 3, 2021 in See It Here

    Almost every conversation over the past year has included a variation of “these are weird times,” some with a few adjectives attached. And there’s been a lot of whining about how our “routines” are different and “when can we see normal” which, to be honest, has become a routine in itself.

    Yes, smart people will write about the lessons learned from Covid-19 in history, psychology, political science, health books and probably comic strips in the next few years. The beuaty of this is, we will debate whether a lesson is really a “lesson,”

    *We need to be patient. We’ve done a lousy job. Dr. Fauci has asked for masks to be kept while many members of Congress are saying we shouldn’t have to be told by government how to live. And in this world of wireless-lotsa gigabyte ability, waiting is unacceptable and the topic of tweets.

    *Learn to see something different when you have the same view. It’s done all the time.

    *Learn to listen when words are said that contradict what you feel. Life has always been that way. Don’t let social media define who you are. Grow up and find a solution to what is faced.

    *Learn that Tucker Carlson is a terrific comedy show.
