Devastation. Deforestastion. War.
Wildfires, floods, drought, famine. Mass shootings.
Concentration camps at the Mexican border.
The youngest of the young, dear brave Greta, setting out on a world tour to scream to any who would listen about the death of earth due to climate change.
But yet an even newer and fresher voice emerges.
Novel Coronavirus.
Covid-19.
Will be heard. Is heard. Must be listened to.
Like an alien spaceship that has landed to exterminate us.
But not alien at all.
The earth will expel us if we do not profoundly change.
The true miracle of this holy season is that for the first time in history, mankind, regardless of nationality, race, religion, sex, social status, can agree on one thing
–the survival of our species
depends on sharing information, cooperating with one another, relying on science.
Have faith because political rhetoric will soon fall on deaf ears.
Gas .99 a gallon, the greenhouse effect disappearing.
Saudi Arabia and Yemen have taken an official time-out from their five year conflict to attack the disease instead.
Revolution. Resolution. Evolution.
I am grateful to still be alive to witness it.
