Reacting to a "Scare"

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Ward County Notary Services

In reacting to a question about our current situation part of my answer was "I refuse to participate in this whole scare". To which another person responded with "Sorry you don't believe in the reality of the "scare"."

It's obvious that many people are scared of the Corona virus... I am not!

We all have our fears whether real or perceived.

I don't fear a nuclear attach... I do fear spiders. I don't fear personal economic ruin (been there, lived through it) but I fear for my children's future should liberalism lead to communism. We all have our fears.

extremistsWhen foreign extremists attached and killed thousands of Americans I was not filled with fear that my city would be next (don't laugh, North Dakota has the largest nuclear arsenal in the US and Minot is host to two separate nuclear facilities).

No, when I read the stories of heroism about 911 I envisioned myself running to the aide of others even if the world around me coming down or like the brave men who brought down the plane knowing they were also bringing their own death upon themselves, not cowering in a corner that I may be a victim.

ladder to heaven

 

 

Those who read my blog regularly know that I am always armed. Not because I'm scared, but because I want to be ready if you or anyone else needs aide. I'm going to be that guy who rushes to help another, not paralyzed by fear, but motivated by Christs love to help another.

Bad guy with a gun or a virus with deadly potential I refuse to participate in a "scare" that might happen and to let that scare run my life.

Some day we are all going to climb that stairway to heaven. I'm not going to let anything "scare" me out of my joy of the gift of life, certainly not a virus called Corona.

Let's all put things into perspective and remember this thing, when it is all done, has been and will be less devastating then many viruses/diseases in the last 100 years. The BIG difference with this one is that the press benefits greatly from it and political parties are all doing what they can to capitalize on it as well.

The human spirit is greater than this virus and I certainly hope that what ever "higher power" you believe in is as well. Go forth, live long and prosper.

I am not scared of the virus - I am willing to follow the rules - wash your hands, wear a mask, stay 6 feet away, wear gloves - it is easy enough to get along with the procedures

Hi Bob- I am not scared but am definitely doing as suggested...constantly washing my hands, keeping my distance from people, and got masks for us because I have asthma and Larry is pre-diabetic...which could make us high-risk. What concerns me are the finger pointers who are determined to find someone to blame as well as those who don't seem to understand about staying at least  6 feet away from me.

Lise Howe I too am respecting the guidelines except the 6' thing being my office space is small and I need to work across the desk with my clients when signing papers. I don't wear a mask but then again if a client asked me to I would.

I'm doing some of the guidelines and understand those that do Kathy Streib . BTW about 6 of the 8 meds I have to take daily are for my immunity problems.

Morning Bob.

While I know I can't do things that I've done before, I realize what is happening and take the necessary precautions.  Am I fearful of catching it, no sir, not at all.

Good morning, Bob... can't say I live my life in fear of this virus or much of anything else. But that being said I'm not going to put myself into a position where I don't take proper precautions against catching this virus.

Thank you Steve Higgins . I'm following most of the suggestions (most of the time) except I am NOT going to wear a mask unless someone tells me that they have the virus when they are speaking to me.

James Dray I am using the common sense of washing my hands often and not touching my face but I'll be darned if I'm going to wear gloves or a face mask.

Nina Hollander if I want to continue generating an income I have to take several chances. People come to my office and I go to peoples homes. I handle their paperwork and we share pens. That being said I wash my hands often, avoid touching my face, and don't let any strangers sit on my lap  (Ok, I just made that last one up for fun).

Carol Williams I am washing my hads a lot and wear cloth gloves (it's still cold up here) but other then that it's business as usual. As a matter of fact I'm much busier then I've ever been because the title company is now sending business to me.

Anna Banana Kruchten CRB,CRS,GRI,WLS much to my surprise we have had a very low rate here in ND. I'm surprised because of the high number of active duty troops all across ND. That being said the county with the most infections has no military ties.

Although I'm busier then I want to be I'm glad I am able to help lots of people close their mortgage transactions.

Bob, I am not scared of it either but don't want loved ones to die from it. You and I are at the age that we have never seen anything quite like this before and hopefully never again.
