Over the last two months, we have been inundated with letters and media concerning the coronavirus. Some of it is helpful and uplifting. The rest is mostly hysteria based on the prevalent herd mentality. It’s time to end the insanity.
First, we need more gratitude in our lives. Halina Slobodow (Letter to the Editor, May 19) has the right idea. Next, we need to follow Mike Perrin’s example of stoic acceptance (Letter to the Editor, May 19) of mitigating circumstances.
Finally, we need to stop throwing out the baby with the bathwater.
As long as we practice social distancing, there is no reason why restaurants, churches and many stores should stay closed.
