The evolution, a new way of living
Most of us are accustomed to being in control of our home environment. We have lost the ability to adapt suddenly, regardless of the dangers. We need young Epic Warriors of technology, to lead us towards adaptation. They may start the spark of change that will ignite our consciousness on a greater scale. This is not a time to gather in public but unite through the power of technology. We can do this through powerful leadership messages. Right now is a real opportunity to shine in the darkness of fear and uncertainty.
The situation we are facing could make more Empathy Heroes. The ones that will survive the change will be the ones who think of others and work as a collective. The hedonistic, hoarding, self-satisfying over others, simply may perish. Stockpiling and thinking only within your borders, could be the recipe for disaster. Instead being Empathy Heroes might be the new generation that survives the new climate we are all facing.
This enemy is not driven by ruler(s) and sees no prejudice, no boundaries, and no mercy. We do have to pull our resources together and share them. During the World War II era, American's moved quickly to get on a war footing. This was the message and strength of America during a different era. Many of our younger generations have a limited scope of history and how important coming together can save lives. No matter what age you are, this is unlike anything we have faced in modern history.
If we are facing a virus that attacks the weak, the old, it will also attack the strong and the young. It is a misconception to think this will not happen to me. Adaptation is nature's way of survival. We must not let the virus adapt quicker than we do. Let's not forget about the impact of the influenza pandemic of 1918–1919. "All influenza A pandemics since that time, and indeed almost all cases of influenza A worldwide have been caused by descendants of the 1918 virus. Making the 1918 virus indeed the "mother" of all pandemics." We must learn to adapt and be grateful the scientific medical community will eventually win this battle. We can work hard now to prevent future generations from facing the worst-case scenario that could eliminate the human population.
We adapt to a new way of living. The people reading this article are most likely fortunate to have access. But how do we reach the others who may not have access to information, education, financial means to survive, therefore losing all hope in humanity. A great case model that went viral is the widely inspirational viewing of citizens in Italy, serenading their neighbors and community from their balconies. Your positive example will allow others to think about good choices, which could spread faster than the virus.
