No Going Back

Many people are writing and talking about how the pandemic is changing our lives. There are no absolutes, everyone agrees. But the guesses are too numerous to recount here. Today SCJ will take a look at several that most writers agree will be included in our future lives.

Germs, Germs and More Germs

Yup. Most around the globe agree we will be highly attentive to getting rid of deadly germs and viruses. Washing hands several times a day will be the ritual. Individuals, groups, businesses, almost every piece of civilization will have a plan for keeping surroundings safe and free from microscopic creatures that could end our lives.

We have probably seen the last of handshaking as well. It’s just too dangerous to be in physical contact with others when you don’t know what they have touched and how they might, or might not, be exposed to viruses/germs. Elbow bumps are the new normal already.

Are We Going Back, or Forward?

Many experts in our world today are talking and writing about The New Normal, suggesting we are at a crossroads in our evolution. Because of the many ravages of COVID-19, going ‘back’ to what was normal prior to the virus going on a rampage is not an option. Our lives are forever changed. But how? And what is changing?

The answer is just about everything, from our daily routines to institutions and large corporations to how government functions to economic stability to…. the list is endless. Just about everything on 21st Century Planet Earth is changing and ‘getting back to normal’ is not going to happen.
