What a strange place our little planet has become. I feel it resembles more and more a blockbuster movie each year, but without the certainty of a Hollywood ending. It seems this one is going to illuminate the best and worst of humanity, and put the fragility of our system to the ultimate test.
Thank god I live where I do! Immense gratitude to everyone on the front line. You are all heroes! 🙏💪
We will get through this of course. It’s been done before. But keep in mind, fear spreads like a virus to, and it is in states of fear that the worst decisions are made. So instead of worrying about what’s out of our control, let’s get all the best ideas on the table before the bad ones, and envision the world we want to emerge on the other side of this shit-show.
And if that fails, just blame China ;-) – joke"
