Disinfect Everything! 03/10/2020

by Joe

It’s always interesting (in a bad way) to experience how a community reacts to events or disasters that are out of its control. SARS, the Tohoku earthquake and tsunami, the Fukushima nuclear plant, I lived though all that along with other events that I’m sure I’ve blocked out of my memory. The inevitable wave of media attention always sparks fears, precautions, and supply stocking – all justifiably so, in my opinion. Now it’s COVID-19 and the infallible optimist in me knows that we’ll get through it. Businesses, organizations, and people around me are all staying vigilant and taking precautionary measures (my local Costco is wiping down all shopping cart handles as they enter the store) and, to me, it shows how a community, when faced with a potential dilemma, can come together to face it. Granted, there have only been less than a handful of cases in my city so life is pretty normal – store shelves are all stocked minus hand sanitizer and face masks and schools are still open. I hope it doesn’t get any worse here but I really feel for the places that have been hit hard. If you’re in one of those places, please keep doing what you can to stay healthy!

Here’s hoping we get through COVID-19 as quickly as possible and we as a global community learn from these experiences.

Enjoy Scene 34 – “Two on One”!

Hey Joe! The link for scene 6 of chapter 11 is broken. I was binge reading and just happened to run into this problem.
