Major World Events Canceled or Postponed due to Coronavirus
My great grandmother Millie was 104 years old when she passed. My paternal great grandmother was 100. My nanny was 95. I often asked them to tell me stories of how they lived their younger years. My grandma Millie told me stories about slavery and post-reconstruction, but I was too young to fully understand. As I grew older, moved, and began my life in a different state, I rarely visited grandma Millie. In my adult life, I wonder how things would be different if I had the forethought to capture those stories in her own words.
As a biomedical research scientist, one of my biggest fears was a global contagion. Many of my friends thought I was a conspiracy theorist. The scariest movies to me were those which depicted natural disasters, genetic mutations, radiation and microscopic organisms that lie dormant for thousands of years, coming back to take their place as a result of environmental triggers.
I never thought I would live to see the day when the entire world stopped. The Coronavirus has the entire globe held captive in order to cure nature, ensure species are no longer endangered, clean polluted airways, allow for the free flow of streams, among many others as a result of human greed.
