Yes, Covid-19 can be fatal!
But so can driving any freeway at 70 MPH.
Yet when we’re doing it, we’re not thinking of death?
We face death daily in assorted ways without thought or fear.
I have personally had Cancer at age 28
survived both the widow maker and Sudden Cardiac Arrest at age 78.
and nearing 82 am still here.
I’ll leave this life when it becomes my time.
But I don’t do stupid things to hurry it along.
The point I’m attempting to make is,
be safe, wear the mask, and social distance,
and don’t let the fear of Covid-19 dominate your life.
