A friend of mine recently asked me how I was doing. I hesitated for a moment, and then we both laughed. How, in the world we’re living in, am I supposed to answer that question?
I’m scared. The world feels like it’s falling apart. Every time I turn on the news it’s about rising infections and spiking death rates. People refuse to wear masks. Conspiracy theories and anti-vaxxers have taken over the conversation. I have Facebook “friends” who think COVID-19 is a hoax, or media propaganda, or a liberal lie to take down the president.
