I’m Scared

I’m scared. I’ve read about epidemics and pandemics. I’ve seen movies and TV episodes about viral outbreaks. I know this has happened before in history, and humanity as a whole survived, and we have better medical science and technology now than we’ve ever had before. But I’m still scared.

I am sure humanity will survive this. We’ve survived worse. I am not at high risk and I’m being very careful. But I’m still scared.




Words have always been my art. They dance for me and sing for me. They laugh for me and cry for me. They are my paint and brushes. They are my clay.
