It’s a Pandemic People (Part 2)

We live in times of uncertainties (please see part one). Beware of “poor” quality content and inaccurate information. It’s tough to know who or what to trust. The stats, the numbers, and the crunchers are constantly changing. It’s hard to discern what information is entirely accurate. So, please take the time for Truth. We all have to make critical daily decisions that will impact our lives and those around us now and later.

We all know “something” is going on. Exactly what that something “is” is difficult to determine without all the facts. Are we taking the time to gather as much accurate information as possible?

My wife reminds me of a read fable from India that well illustrates the situation in which we all find ourselves:

“6 blind men who went to see an elephant…The first one touched its side and said: “Bless me! but the elephant is very like a wall!” The second one touched its tusk and said: “An elephant is very like a spear!” The Third touched its trunk and said: “The elephant is very like a snake!” The fourth reached out and felt its knee and said: “Tis clear enough the elephant is very like a tree!”  The fifth touched its ear and said: “This marvel of an elephant is very like a fan!” The sixth seized its tail and said: “I see the elephant is very like a rope!”  The 6 blind men disputed long and loud about what an elephant was like, but no one gave a correct description. Incomplete information did not give a complete picture.

Don’t Panic People during a? Pandemic!

Take Care. Stay Well. Spot Truth.

Take the essential time to gather “the Facts” before acting…out.
