Although not necessary, but certainly a part of existence is illness. I am referring to Coronavirus COVID-19 CDC. and other fatal virus types. All and all any virus or sickness that may occur is simply a part of and nothing to be fearful about. Perhaps human natured is flawed by what could happen or be rather than what is. I have 2 dogs, if one hears a strange noise she huffs and puffs and paces rapidly through the house. Everyone in the house is affected, we are caught up in the dog's frenzy because we are socially connected. The other point I want to make is regarding empathy. Through the type of work I do; Human Service; I've learned the importance of detachment and boundaries. Perhaps that is why I view life as a living machine that in order for it to function there has to be birth and death, life cannot be any other way in order to replenish itself and move forward.
