This is how a typical news report goes these days. It’s also filtrating into commercials and public service announcements. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I’m getting sick of all the “feel good” stuff floating around in the media. No one knows how I feel, so don’t bother telling me how I’m going to get through this. Here’s my rendition of what’s floating around the air waves today:
We’re living in difficult times. The times right now are precarious and unknown. Each day brings more and more difficulty to these difficult times as we seem to need to be in touch with those outside our dwellings.
If we can endure the terribly difficult times, we’re currently facing, we will be better for it. We know that each day brings new difficulties. It’s difficult to wear a mask and gloves. It’s difficult to stay at home. It’s extremely difficult to be out of toilet paper. It’s beyond difficult to be stuck under one roof with your entire family 24/7. We know that it’s difficult, but we’re in this together, because we thrive on difficulty.
So if you’re feeling sad today, it’s probably because you can’t see an end to this stay at home order. Will we be confined for the rest of the year? Will there be another virus? Will Murder Bees be the next plague to infest our country?
Don’t worry. We can surmount any difficulty, because we’re Americans and we’re all in this together. Our difficulties may seem difficult now, but wait. The year isn’t over yet and we have a presidential election waiting right around the corner.
