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.
When 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.
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.
