Stay safe

These are obviously difficult and worrying times. Perhaps uniquely, there is no them and us situation, a virus doesn’t care whether you are rich or poor, a statesman or dishwasher, black or white. Naively I would like to think that at the end of this(for it will end) we can take lessons from that, borders and race won’t seem so important, idealogies and religions will step back and take a look at themselves. We are all human, we can all suffer. We are all one species struggling to exist on a remote rock in the vast emptiness of space.

We are vulnerable from so many angles, global warming, meteors and asteroids, tsunamis, earthquakes and volcanoes. Disease. They have all happened in the past, they will all happen again. They are happening currently.

And yes it is naive. But when we can stand back and take a long hard look at what just happened I hope the right lessons are learned. We are the generation it has fallen upon to make sure this happens. Let’s try our hardest, let’s make sure the right decisions are made to ensure we protect ourselves. Not within borders, not because one leader values the life of their population more than their neighbour. But as a species, as a species that can be so much better than what we are…

In the meantime, stay safe, look out for your neighbours and friends and more importantly those who haven’t got neighbours or friends…

Once that’s done sit back, make a cup of tea, read a book, take up a new hobby, be thankful for your blessings and stay safe….
