Forgive me from varying from the focus of this website this morning but it is was hard to search and write about Alabama history with the world in so much chaos
I woke up with the same feeling of dread I’ve been experiencing for two weeks.
It Isn’t a Night-mare!
Life, as I knew it only a mere week ago, has changed.
I was depressed by the sheer weight of it all and thought about all the simple items I took for granted only last week. I never thought I’d live in a world where toilet paper was valued so highly or other store products would be in great shortage. I cannot even walk down the street with a friend by my side.
We are now in a world with an invisible enemy that seems to be winning. Because of it, death may be imminent to many of us, especially the medically vulnerable. We are informed that our medical facilities will soon be overrun and those needing medical assistance with ventilators, etc. may soon be denied. What a sad and horrible way to die, needing a ventilator to breathe and not getting it because none are available. It is a medical future anyone of us now faces.
All this information is hard to take in and I’d like to just ignore it, but new changes occur daily. I am now even having trouble refilling my daily prescriptions. I wonder if I will have to stop them altogether next week.
I Have a Choice
I realized that I have a choice as to how this virus affects me. I could become depressed and hope for the best; put my head in the sand and try to ignore what is happening around me; or fight back any way I can.
I chose to fight back.
I know I reach thousands through this website so I decided to speak out and share facts I found. At least, I’d feel productive instead of so helpless.
I began by researching information about the Coronavirus-19 and I discovered a major vulnerability in the virus.
It’s like a Science Fiction movie
This fight is like a Science Fiction movie with the entire world at war with the coronavirus-19.
We cannot completely eradicate this virus without everyone’s help, but the virus does have a major vulnerability for its survival and we can use this vulnerability to contain it and get our way of life back.
It Needs our Human Bodies to survive!
Scientists and our Doctors tell us that this enemy has one major weakness. It needs our human bodies to survive! This is why they are urging us to stay 6 feet away from each other for at least 20 days. Evidently, they have calculated that it cannot be spread if we are at least 6 feet apart and it will live in our bodies for approximately 20 days.
Some people may not even know that they have the virus and have no symptoms
Some people do not have any symptoms and simply carry the Coronavirus-19 to others. They are the most dangerous because the virus will spread to everyone closer than 6 feet of that person and they wouldn’t know they were spreading it. Also, people who are carriers would not be tested during the time the virus was in their bodies.
The visuals from the Washington Post link below are the best I’ve seen on how Covid-19 continues to survive and spread.
We are literally keeping this virus alive by remaining in close contact
This virus uses our natural need for human contact to survive. We need to find another way to share our love, friendship, and emotions for 20 (or even 30 days) to keep the virus from spreading to others.
We should all vow not to be in close contact with anyone other than those we live with for at least a month. This way the coronavirus-19 has no way to spread beyond our own household.
Can Only Exist a Short Time on Surfaces
The coronavirus-19 can not exist very long without a human body. It can only exist a short while in the air and on surfaces. The article below reveals some of the amount of time it can survive on surfaces.
After research, I realized that the scientists are right. If everyone on earth simply stayed away from each other at the same moment in time for at least a month, the coronavirus-19 would die.
It is like a parasite and its survival depends on the fact that it can easily be carried to another person.
By stopping close contact with each other for a short period of time, we can kill this invisible enemy.
Like the scientists say: We must socially distance ourselves to kill this virus. “We are keeping it alive by staying in close contact with each other.”
If we left all protective masks, gowns, etc. available to only essential workers, doctors, health-care workers, and anyone who needed to get close to others to perform their duties, then they wouldn’t transport the virus and the rest of the world could simply stay away from each other for at least a month until Corona-19 died.
Help fight back
The world won’t end if we take a month off from non-essential jobs and services, but this virus could continue for a long time and threaten our lives and way of life as long as we keep transmitting the virus to others.
Please share this information with others and urge them to remain home. Call your friends and family and tell them to not visit you for a month. At least we still have the internet, cell phones, and social media to stay connected. We need to stop this virus in its tracks as soon as possible before it kills millions and/or this becomes our way of life forever.
This is something simple each of us can do instead of feeling so helpless and depressed over the situation.
The exhilarating action & subplots keep the reader in constant anticipation. It is almost impossible to put the book down until completion,
Dr. Don P. Brandon, Retired Professor, Anderson University, Anderson, Indiana
This is the first book I have read that puts a personal touch on some seemingly real people in factual events.
At the age of sixteen, Mary and her husband, whom she barely knows, are forced to escape the only home they’ve ever known and settle in the primitive 17th-century world of America where they shape their family’s destiny for generations.
Inspired by actual people and historical events of colonial America, “The Kingdom of Accawmacke” is revealed and secrets about America’s history are discovered in this well-researched series. The story begins in 17th century England during the reign of Charles I and continues a family’s journey to the eastern shore of Virginia and Maryland.
