The Covid-19 panda ic is still raging on and, honestly, the numbers coming out in my state and city is not encouraging. We are still recording new record numbers and yet, some of us are required to be at work and unnecessarily exposed to the risk of infection.
It wouldn't be anything to worry about if it was essential to my job. But the fact remains is that it is not.
We don't know when all this catastrophe will be over and everyday, I pray that it is soon.
Not only are we at high risk of catching the virus, we are doing unprecedented damage to the environment judging from the number of plastic and disposals we are left with no other choice but to use especially when we are ordering food through apps.
I feel frustrated that all my efforts to avoid commercialism, materialism, and active participation in environmental efforts is going to waste.
I wish there were better options but I know there's none at this point in time.
Every single day, my efforts (as small and insignificant as they are) to reduce waste and recycle more often is reduced to nothing more than a vain, aimless attempt.
And there's nothing we can do now.
I hope this pandemic dies down soon, especially in the state and city I am living in. Today, we Rea he'd another new record of new cases and it scares me.
I wish there was something more we can do about it. Our hopes for a better 2021 is not going to materialize. Not yet, anyway.
But there's still hope and I take heart, and deeply thank, that there are people who are working desperately to find a solution everyday.
Their sacrifice and dedication cannot go unrewarded or unrecognized. They have my utmost respect!
Writing this from the bed, I hope we continue to do our part to at least try to reduce the impact on the environment.
It's small and insignificant when viewed as a one dimensional. But collectively, it could be better than my somber thoughts allows me to believe.
Sending you love and hugs!
