Imagine it’s five years later. February 13, 2026. Nothing changed. Masks, distancing, everything is closed, everybody is on Zoom, no schools for kids, no travel for you, etc.
Don’t tell me it’s impossible. A year ago, did you think it was possible? Did you have any inkling that it would all still continue a year later?
How old will you be in 5 years? Imagine you already are and you’ve spent not one but six years like this.
Will it be OK? Will you get angry? Six years total, a large chunk of your life. Eaten away under the guise of “two weeks to flatten the curve.” Will six years be enough? Will you be ready to stop then?
If so, then why wait? Let’s stop now. Remember, it ends when we realize it’s all (the operative word being “all”) completely ridiculous and stop taking it seriously. It ends when we decide it ends.
