Insiders in the news media have a saying... "If it bleeds, it leads." And as we all know, the news media uses "fear porn" to drive us crazy.
Here in the good ol' USA, the amount of profits made is directly proportional to the amount of fear in the air.
Our freedom does not end where your fear begins.
If you are scared about everything life has to offer, I suggest sheltering in place at home.
If you are afraid to be within 6 feet of another person, please do not join XClave. (We like to hug it out... play in the dirt - even shake hands.)
The truth is life is never perfectly safe. We are always under risk and expose ourselves beyond our control.
For example: the odds of dying in a car crash are a staggering 1 in 103 trips. And most of us do not think twice about driving to work or to a grocery store.
According to the CDC, the death rate of COVID-19 barely shows up on a calculator at .0265%. In simple speak, COVID-19 is a big fat "nothingburger".
Even our homes can be unsafe. If we are unlucky, terrible things can happen. One girl I knew in high school suffered an odd accident - a car crashed into her bedroom in the middle of the night. (Fortunately, she survived).
Life is life...
And at XClave, we do not fear "invisible enemies". We live life to its fullest - without fear... without social distancing and without wearing silly masks.
