The situation that we face on an international level is an opportunity to prepare for the future. The fear of a global pandemic was the origin of the zombie movies genre when Romero created Dawn of the Dead in 1978.
Globalization spreads everything even faster. In order to temper the acceleration - it takes a global effort. We have the tools and technology to react with coordination. Social distancing could have easily been organized long before Valentine’s Day.
Yet, it feels like the idea of Social Distancing was created in the past two weeks. Hopefully, this can be a learning experience for all of us who dwell on planet earth. Take action. Come together. Be there for each other. Contribute however you can.
