It's (Not) the End of the World As We Know It

March 21, 2020 - 6:24pm -- TracyC

What a time to be alive, huh?

Nothing like this COVID-19 situation has happened in about a hundred years--the Spanish Flu in 1918 is the most oft-used comparison right now. So, pretty much, there’s been nothing like this in recent memory. 

I really want to emphasize: Please don’t panic. We will get through this. We are all in this together. Please be smart: Wash your hands, wipe down your phones, try not to touch your face, cough and sneeze into your elbow, avoid crowds as much as you can. Also: Please live your life!

I’m writing this particular post to encourage you to be a tourist in your own city—Denver! Between the drudgery and routine of going to school, plus maybe you also have extra activities at school or a job, going home, doing homework, then getting up to do it all again the next day, it’s so easy to forget that you live in a completely awesome city. I recently had out-of-town guests staying at my house and consequently wound up showing them around and entertaining them. During a short driving tour of our “Queen City of the Plains,” it really struck me: Denver is wonderful!
