Fun Ways to Travel…Virtually

I believe, too, that this wave of social awareness, thankfully, is part of a larger plan for us. Let’s think about it. Even before Covid-19, we were a country plagued. This affliction was not a physical virus, but rather a mental one – we were plagued by “complacency”. Insidious, far-reaching, exhausting…but easy to ignore. As long as we weren’t impacted, we let it be.

Then came corona and this virus, in a way, leveled the playing field. It didn’t discriminate. We were all impacted.
