Fear

Have you ever noticed how many news articles incite fear? Since I started staying home, I read more and have noticed that most articles I read are loaded with “this could happen to you”, or “experts say this bad thing is imminent”. It’s enough to keep one’s blood pressure high or to put a damper on every day of life.

The only good thing about the news I read that seems determined to worry the reader is that I am older. Older than what? Older than the people who rush out to work every morning. And because I am older, my mind now thinks, “I doubt I’ll live long enough to have to worry about that”.
