March 18th, 2020 small village in rural Ireland rekindles the symbol of hope & community spirit
This one brought a tear to my eyes - tonight March 18th in the 'calm before the storm' a symbol of hope and community spirit was rekindled in a small town in Co Roscommon, my county in Ireland.
There have been some horrendous decisions made by the Irish and other governments, the spin doctors are out in force to use this 'black swan' virus event to their advantage [if indeed it is entirely accidental], there's been bad selfish behaviour by rich and young and everything in between sprawling videos of hoarding and panic buying of toilet paper and partying and defiance but as usual mostly bad stuff makes the news, there's a lot of good stuff going on too and more to come.
Heroes are beginning to appear for what they truly are, acts of astounding kindness, supermarkets opening special hours for elderly only...humans at their best are impressive indeed, this is an opportunity to take things back somewhat from industry as it's bad decisions have led us to this - though it'll be a fight as industry uses it as yet anothers opportunity to sell a solution...game on!
Good luck to everyone.
- remember the healthy and young come out of this very well, the old and ill need antioxidants, according to an integrative doctor showing the research and according to the herbalists also hitting this from another angle with herbs instead of supplements. But industry is about profits not free or inexpensive solutions, that research has been ignored 20 years, bad farming practices that allow viruses to mutate are thriving, tech that weakens immune systems being rolled out as people are locked down in quarantine literally small cells appearing outside their windows - but if anything has the opportunity to change things, this event has.
