Despite COVID-19 fears,

we have survived much

Editor, Times:Dispatch:

The years 2020 and 20-21 have been an ongoing challenge and to put these years into perspective, I would like to chronicle what we have survived.

You see, my fellow Americans, as President Franklin D. Roosevelt said in 1933, “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

2000: Y2K is going to destroy everything.

2001: Anthrax is going to kill us all.

2002: West Nile virus is going to kill us all.

2003: SARS is going to kills us all.

2005: Bird Flu is going to kill us all.

2006: E.coli is going to kill us all.

2008: Financial collapse is going to kill us all.

2009: Swine flu is going to kill us all.

2012: The Mayan calendar predicts the world will end.

2013: North Korea is going to start World War III.

2014: Ebola virus is going to kill us all.

2015: ISIS is going to kill us all.

2016: Zika virus is going to kill us all including the unborn.

2020: Coronavirus is going to kill us all.

The truth is fear is going to kill you. So turn off the TV and social media, and  get your shots, wear your masks if you want to and wash your hands.

Connect with your family and have a beer or a glass of wine.
