Were you a victim of denial?
For weeks I saw the headlines “Coronavirus in China” I scanned the articles but not really paying attention to the heaviness of the situation. That could never happen to us here in the United States I thought in my comfortable bubble. We live in the age of medicine and technology, how could something so medieval happen to our futuristic lives?
At the beginning of March, my bubble was popped. All of a sudden I noticed that people began to become more frantic in their everyday lives. Grocery stores began to change with non-perishables becoming more scarce. Even the flow of traffic began to get more frantic. Americans everyday life was unwinding, every apocalypse movie seemed to be coming true.
