For some, the ugliest aspects of their humanity, or lack of, seems to come out during a time of crisis. For others the reality of the crisis can bring about depression, fatigue and anger before their innate spirituality comes out and then their best shines through.
After browsing through the news, the comment section, social media and different forums, we have found it all, "the good, the bad and the ugly."
The wicked witch of Benghazi has managed to top all the ugly to date with her latest example of evil.
HILLARY CLINTON WINS THE PRIZE FOR THE UGLIEST
We'll start with the ugly so we can end with the good since we are noting many describing how "quarantine reality" is starting to set in and a type of "fatigue" is presenting itself. Plus, ending any piece with that image above, is definitely not the last visual we want to leave readers with.
That would be cruel.
Since news of the COVID-19 coronavirus spreading to America was first reported, we have seen some horrible people saying some horrible things.
There is no shortage of examples showing the nastiness, the ugly comments, the lies from the media, and the utter lack of basic humanity being shown in this time of crisis....all because to them, ORANGE. MAN. BAD.
This follows a number of other tweets from Clinton that attempted to undermine the President of the United states during a time of crisis and uncertainty.
How morally deprived does a person have to be to basically celebrate America suffering, all because the woman is so bitter, ugly inside and evil?
Never have I been so happy that we dodged the bullet of a Hillary Clinton presidency.
THE BAD.......PRICE GOUGERS, QUARANTINE REALITY AND FATIGUE
One horrible aspect of this coronavirus spread has been seeing people taking advantage of the COVID-19 lockdowns by price gouging. Months ago, when the news first broke that the virus had spread globally, many of us tried to get people to add to their preparations, or even to start to prepare in a calm and methodical manner, rather than panic shopping, finding products that could no longer be found on the shelves of their local stores.......then we notice something horrid.
Some Amazon sellers were doubling and in some cases tripling their prices of sought-after products.
On March 1, the day after the first coronavirus death in the United States was announced, brothers Matt and Noah Colvin set out in a silver S.U.V. to pick up some hand sanitizer. Driving around Chattanooga, Tenn., they hit a Dollar Tree, then a Walmart, a Staples and a Home Depot. At each store, they cleaned out the shelves.
Over the next three days, Noah Colvin took a 1,300-mile road trip across Tennessee and into Kentucky, filling a U-Haul truck with thousands of bottles of hand sanitizer and thousands of packs of antibacterial wipes, mostly from “little hole-in-the-wall dollar stores in the backwoods,” his brother said. “The major metro areas were cleaned out.”
Matt Colvin stayed home near Chattanooga, preparing for pallets of even more wipes and sanitizer he had ordered, and starting to list them on Amazon. Mr. Colvin said he had posted 300 bottles of hand sanitizer and immediately sold them all for between $8 and $70 each, multiples higher than what he had bought them for. To him, “it was crazy money.” To many others, it was profiteering from a pandemic.
The next day, Amazon pulled his items and thousands of other listings for sanitizer, wipes and face masks. The company suspended some of the sellers behind the listings and warned many others that if they kept running up prices, they’d lose their accounts.
The worst of humanity comes out during a crisis, then again, so does the best in some.
Another aspect of the "bad" is how self-quarantining is affecting people mentally and emotionally.
As mentioned above, we have noted readers, other chat forms and social media commentators are starting to get depressed from being in self-quarantine. A lack of energy and drive to do chores, clean, or basically do anything.
This will effect people mentally, emotionally, and physically in the coming weeks, or months.
Preppers can use this as a learning curve.
Many have often recommended that people prepare not just to survive in isolation if need be, but to remember that loneliness, boredom, and stress from the reason for that isolation, would be an invisible enemy that is very hard to fight.
While it is recommended often, it still ends up being the last thing people get around to, yet the fatigue and depression is usually one of the first things to hit.
Some read, some putter, some create projects around the house to get busy and provide a sense of accomplishment. There are a number of ways to help get through an extended isolation period.
We have often written about indoor and/or outdoor gardens so there is less of a dependence on grocery stores, especially when one never knows how much of what product is going to be on the shelves.
Maybe now would be the perfect time to get those started. Working towards something productive, something that could end up being the key to survival, something that provides for you and your family, is definitely one way to fight off the cabin fever.
Readers are encouraged to leave some of their favorite methods of "keeping busy" or entertaining themselves, in the comment section below.
One of the best things I have noted during the beginning of this crisis, is more people turning back to God, spending more time praying and asking God for guidance than they did previously. Using their time in isolation to connect again with their spirituality.
Another part of the "good," is seeing how people, online and offline are trying to help each other, offering tips, resources, sometimes just an inspiring bible verse, or song.
I have seen stories of sharing, caring, love, spirituality and utter selflessness. People offering to help teach others, a portion of their supplies to those in needs because they didn't have the resources to prepare for an extended self-quarantine period.
We also encourage readers to share any of those types of stories, because sometimes seeing something poignant, and good, can undoubtedly turn a mood around, which in turn helps one feel better mentally and physically.
Nurse hears a man knocking at the hospital window, turns to look, and sees a man with tears rolling down his face, his hand held over his heart and a sign with a message for the hospital staff, which said "THANK YOU ALL IN EMERGENCY FOR SAVING MY WIFE'S LIFE. I LOVE YOU ALL."
God bless and stay safe.
