COVID-19, a world without hope?

Trying to write this coherently is like trying to communicate with my spouse.  There is so much going on inside my head and she can't read my mind anymore than you can, and neither of you really want to know those thoughts anyway! I was still at a loss on why the quarantine and panic.  …
