The song, The Final Countdown, got stuck in my head over the weekend. Dad and I were discussing the pandemic and how we’re all in this together. We agreed that the longer we ignore the science, the longer it will take to get this under control.
We spoke of the millions who have contracted COVID-19, and the millions who will die unnecessarily before this is over IF we all don’t band together and do what needs to be done. I mean, a few minor inconveniences seems a much better plan for the future than being on a ventilator and dying alone. The last thing that came out of my mouth, which nearly brought me to tears was, “If we don’t get our shit together, this could be our final countdown.”
And that’s all it took for this song to get stuck in my head for 2 days, and now regrettably, every time I hear the song I will think of the year 2020 and how we have failed.
No, I don’t think it’s the end of the world, but it’s quite possibly the end of the world as we know it…. Well, shit. Now that song is stuck in my head!
