Okay, so the coronavirus crisis has us all staying indoors and avoiding contact with other people. But now this: It won’t last forever. Someday soon, people will get the all-clear so they can go outside and enjoy life with their friends again.
And when that happens, it’s going to be one of the biggest celebrations the world has ever seen. And when it comes, you want to be ready.
Better Times Ahead
Nobody can know for certain when the coronavirus will be defeated. It could be in just a few weeks. It may be a month or more. Or it could be longer. But there is one thing we do know: When it comes, everybody is going to want to mark the victory with parties, festivals, and other special events that both commemorate the people we have lost and celebrate the global victory over this terrible enemy.
When life returns to normal, all the good times with our family and friends will come back again. There will be birthday parties, block parties, church picnics, street fairs, and other festivities. And because they have been delayed, they will be all that more gratifying and enjoyable.
For the time being, there can be no parties. There can’t be any celebrations or even gatherings of more than a few people. The medical experts tell us we will be safer if we keep a distance from other people for a while. So no bounce houses, no pony rides, no face painting, and none of the other things we enjoy so much.
We simply have to do the things necessary to bring that day closer to reality. Stay inside. Follow social distancing protocols. Take the necessary steps to keep you and your family safe.
And dream about the day when everything goes back to the way it was.
