How to Stop Living in Fear

I love this cartoon! What can we do to stop living in fear? A great question and an equally great answer! Click!

Perhaps the biggest fear right now for many is COVID-19, or the Corona Virus. Now I'm not a medical professional, but we've all been down this road before. In 2003 there was another Corona Virus called SARS. Remember that one?

Bad? Yes. Do we need to take certain precautions? Yes, of course. However, I cannot help but believe that, like all bad news, the current fear is made much worse than necessary by the media. After all, bad news sells.

So whatever you're fearing, be it the latest global virus or political nut-case leader, perhaps the first line of defence is to turn off the television news. And while we're at it, perhaps unfollowing some of those self-proclaimed social media authorities, most of whom really don't know their a** from a hole in the ground about such matters anyways.

After all, what other possible explanation could there be for this latest crazy mass hysteria of folks running out to purchase a 40-year supply of toilet paper? Seriously? How exactly that's going to help, beats me.
