This too shall pass!

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the clear blue dawning, cool, calm, 24 Karat gold island of Nantucket! Very good to be with you on this Fourteenth Day of March, 2020, broadcasting LIVE on this surreal Saturday morning here on Ocean Street nestled upon the hallowed shores of Historic Hyannis, hoping you and yours are safe and well stocked up, as;

“…we sail on into the mystic……”

Scenes now playing out all over the world, including here in this country, where cities, suburbs and villages have become ghost towns, like New York City, with 400 new confirmed cases, hence it would appear that people heeding the warnings regarding COVID-19;  it’s novel nuisance sparking wide shortages of food, toiletries, cleaning supplies, hand sanitizers, you name it.  Lines were long at most grocery stores as a panic buy grips the country.

The U.S. President spoke at the White House yesterday in the Rose Garden, with a slew of his ‘Corona Virus’ team members at his back.  Continuing on with the familiar narrative that ‘all is well’, ‘things are going smoothly’, ‘we have done a wonderful job’…

Oh, and the classic all time favorite we all know and LOVE, “it’s beautiful!”;

“If you want a test you can get a test”.

Would you just accept that?

“There is no “I” in “T.E.A.M.”! Of course, that colloquialism applies not so much to me, The Donald, for I am a God at SEA sir!”

Meanwhile, in the real world, many are coming to terms with the FACT that this GLOBAL viral pandemic will get worse before it gets better.  Like most viruses, a graph shows a bell curve, with a giant spike and a gentle hill.  It all depends on how we mitigate the problem.

“What problem?”

As events, conferences, schools, professional sporting venues, colleges, even small gatherings are shut down, postponed, delayed, such as the Boston Marathon yesterday, Americans wait in fear and trepidation of what is to happen next.

It’s almost as if the ‘end of the world’ just occurred and everything has gone silent.

Of course, this virus will run it’s course, and upon reaching the end of it’s ravage, the world will never really be the same.

But, rest assured, this too shall pass.

Whether this newest virus was weaponized, planted by nefarious military/intelligence forces remains to be seen, if ever, matters not presently.  We must care for ourselves, selfishly and unselfishly, by practicing pristine hand hygiene, social distancing, awareness of our surroundings, and using common sense to go about OUR daily lives, in a clearly different country than it was only a month ago.

WE are all in the same boat.

Who would have thought Broadway would go dark?  The Master’s PGA golf tournament would be cancelled?  St. Patrick’s Day parades given a “Big Book” to cease and desist from marching and/or drinking green kegs filled with boozy beer?  That colleges like Harvard would shut down it’s campus, prompting the majority of colleges to do the same.  Schools around the nation shut down, except here in Boston where Mr. Walsh thinks Roxbury, don’t count…

Precisely the point.

Low income, older and poor people will be affected the most.  Because we have such a lousy health care system that gives only to those who can afford it, we shall SEA many casualties from this sector of society, and for that, we should all be ashamed.  We are only as strong as our weakest link, and this disease takes into account no preference for who it kills and who it leaves alive.

The U.S. House of Representatives sent the first of hopefully many bills to the U.S. Senate yesterday, to fast track some relief to these vulnerable human beings, of whom may have lost their jobs and many soon will, as the Republic dips into a deep recession, indeed the World at large experiencing something not yet seen in this new digital age of the 4th Industrial Revolution.

If President Trump does not sign this bill into law, without the caveat of ‘prid quo pro’, via his bloody payroll tax cut, he will finally have, like the Roman Pilot, as sung by the great Rock Band, “The Rolling Stones”;

“…washed his hands and sealed his fate.”

Can ;you guess my name?

Have a nice Saturday folks, stay healthy, stay safe, and for God’s sakes, stay away from panic or depression.

For this too,

shall,

pass.

PRESERVE THE WILDERNESS! Peace~M
