Preparing for Another Round of COVID

It’s hard to find good news even after seven months but there are reasons for hope.

  • We’ve all made it through seven months with most remaining healthy.
  • The horrible pandemic of 1918 went away after a few years with people adapting to new rules of engagement in the meantime.
  • Adversity always brings good (I wrote a book on this topic) – therefore if we tough it out and deal with this health crisis together, there is a reward at the end of it all.

College students are anxious and depressed because their lives have been interrupted, they are not having fun and they worry about graduating into a market with few jobs.

COVID is not just an inconvenience or a pause, it is a disruptor of life as it used to be and 100 years ago it launched another decade of prosperity giving all of us a reason to have hope.
