……..Can Come Countless Branches of Hope
I would like to focus on hope in these dark times, and what each of us can do to help. While we know that every person who has COVID 19 can spread the disease to between 2-3 people, I would like us to look at the inverse of that, as we say in mathematics. Here in California we are sheltering in place. I know other places in the States are doing the same, as are many other countries. Think about the inverse of the equation. For every one person who is sheltering in place, whether or not you are infected, you are not spreading COVID 19 to 2-3 people, who in turn are not spreading the virus to an additional 2-3 people, who are not spreading….. If you do not have the virus, by staying home you will continue to not have the virus. And just by following sheltering in place guidelines and only going out for necessary food and medical appointments, even if your state or country has not instituted this as a blanket procedure and you are only able to do this on your own, think of how many lives you can save. Even if you are someone who has to continue to work in an office, a warehouse, or a factory, you can still participate in social distancing during your off hours, thus reducing the risk both to you and your family and friends.
Please help save lives. Stay home. Stay safe. Stay well.
