As I self isolate and read apocalyptic posts,,,

How about some optimistic damn facts. There are 380 million people in America. The overwhelming majority won't die in the hallway of an overcrowded hospital. Right now, cases are still low enough we could fit them in a high school gym. We will come out of this. Yes, economic harm will be very bad but we will survive with our health. Nothing is guareented in life and if you come out a bit less financially secure- that's a blessing in itself. Now, I'm not downplaying the virus. Hell.....I'm self isolating myself but in a week where it's doom, gloom and Armageddon we can always put things in perspective.
