Can a Virus Push us to become Better?

The impact of SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19 are intriguing at many levels.

It will be interesting to discern the future impact of this pandemic.

It has reshaped the world.

A few intriguing studies in the news today include:

Some personality types are less likely to cohere to social distancing/social care.  Individuals can negatively impact the future of societies.

Fossil Fuels may never recover from the impacts.  (Personally, I think fossil fuels will persist for many decades, simply based on the number of "end-user" needs in the forms of current vehicles on the road.)

A single nation, acting with social/government intentional impact, while impacted by SARS-CoV-2 has demonstrated they can "conquer" it.  Good Job New Zealand. 

And, it's evident that when people acted with some intention in shut-downs and social-distancing - lives were spared from COVID-19.  Social care and social action can make the world safer, better.



We can be better.

We need more social advocacy and shared commitment to one another - to the health and wholeness of all persons.
