An uncertain year lies ahead
When will we have the vaccines?
Who will get them first?
When will there be enough immunity?
When can we start visiting our friends?
When can musicians sing in front of crowds?
When will the news not be about COVID?
When will the children visit their grandparents?
When can we get together with our friends?
How long will we need to wear our masks?
How long do we need to stay two feet apart?
How long before some people can go back to work?
How long before a sense of normal?
No one has the exact answers to these questions
We have to get comfortable with the uncertainty
We have to do our best to keep our communities safe
Short term pleasure will cause long term pain
We have to act based on the guidelines in place
By cheating, we are cheating no one but ourselves
We have to look beyond what pleases us
We have to realize others’ health depends on us
We live in a ‘me’ society
It’s time to change it to a ‘we’ society
