Thank you, Paul!
I think how we approach the topic matters and you may find writing about your experience therapeutic. For me, it is recognizing and honoring the suffering of others while keeping space for my own interpretation.
There are also universal and positive truths for everyone — for example, fewer cars on the road meant lower pollution levels regardless if you caught Covid or not.
Was our old way of living actually working? Not so much. I think Covid is a wake-up call for humans to evaluate our lifestyles and the direct impact each of us has on the environment.
Hope I can read your story soon! Wishing you the best — Lisa
