A COVID Serenity Prayer
Lucy McBride, writing in The Atlantic, has a few thoughts on moving forward in this world with COVID.
Acceptance is not about agreeing with or surrendering to suffering. It is not about reckless abandonment of caution or carelessness toward others. It means letting go of the false promise of “COVID zero,” taking an honest assessment of our personal risk tolerance, and ceding control where control isn’t possible. It’s about getting vaccinated against COVID and the flu before attending a wedding in person—instead of watching the nuptials on Zoom.
A balanced and reasonable take. I hope enough people will heed it.
