ON THE BACK BURNER

April 13

I use to have days when I would  think,” stop the world, I want to get off”. Now my world is stopped  I hate that this virus has taken such a horrific toll on life, families, our economy, the way we lived. But I am Ok with the slowness of my life. I was a depression baby. My family , as far as I experienced it, was OK. I didn’t hear of deprivation . My parents didn’t have a depression mentality that made them prepare for the worse. But now,I wonder, will people have a virus mentality. Will the deprivation of lost pay checks, lost businesses, death or debilitating illness make for a virus mentality. What will a virus mentality even look like. Will those people who thought they had it “good”, and approved of the leadership, turn , and see how they were duped into thinking that they had a leader who thought like they did . I wonder if the world that I looked out on before the virus ,the world that  had turned ugly and hostile,and even cruel, would change. These are just some of the things that I think about , when it should have been a day for celebrating with families, having a picnic, going to the beach, looking for Easter eggs, watching a baseball game. You know, normal things.
