The five stages are denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance are a part of the framework that makes up our learning to live with what we have lost with this pandemic. We went thru the denial period of hoping it wouldn’t happen here and are now becoming increasingly angry about the poor response to it! As the body count increases we will become very angry. Some will blame Trump, some China and some God.
The real bargaining will begin this Fall as the Virus rears it’s ugly head again accompanied by a massive global economic depression. Acceptance won’t begin until the pandemic runs it course, perhaps by the Spring of 2022 or if the global depression ends which ever happens first.
And that is all I’m going to say about that.
