The light at the end of the tunnel
I think that I have figured out what the source is, of that desperately needed light at the end of the tunnel is.
It is a combination of 3 groups of 2 elements.
Just like in science, when elements cling or bond together they become more than simple single elements, they become compounds.
Compounds are what we are all made up of.
The first compound is made up of the two elements Hope and Faith.
The light at the end of the tunnel relies on each individual to hopefully continue to follow the distancing guidelines until the all clear is given. Everyone has to have faith in each other that they will do whatever is necessary to stop the spread. Hope and Faith in each other are needed in order to reduce the chance that anyone and everyone gets, or gives, the sickness to each other.
The second compound is made up of respect and trust.
The light at the end of the tunnel relies on each other to trust each other and respect each other’s health and well-being. These 2 elements have sadly been in low supply lately, and now is our chance to demonstrate that we not only can, but also desire to exercise both.
The third compound is made up of common sense and commitment.
The light at the end of the tunnel relies on everyone to get back to just using good old common sense. Don’t do things that you know will jeopardize other people’s health and well-being. Stay committed to doing whatever is necessary to limit exposure, by following the guidelines for washing hands, wearing masks in public, staying home when feeling sick.
If we are diligent in doing the things that are in each person’s ability,
that light at the end of the tunnel will soon arrive.
