This Too Shall Pass

In reference to Monday, July 27’s article written by Joyce Ryan, “Yes, Joyce, I do agree with you regarding ‘social intimacy.’”
My group of friends here in Brevard are all “huggies,” and we also miss the aspect of a hug – be it a meeting on the street, a goodbye after lunch or a hello at the grocery store. Will we need to distance forever? I hope not, but only time will tell. It is a challenging situation, but it is for our own good. Right now, I feel that the world will never be the same and that we will have to keep adjusting to it.
So sorry to hear of her confrontation with the two young men at the grocery store, but I do believe that Brevard is remarkable in how compliant the residents are about wearing masks outdoors. Who are the noncompliant people here? What do we see around town? Dozens of out-of- state license plates and large groups strolling down Main Street with no distancing and no masks. It is very frustrating.
This is real life, not a joke. The virus won’t leave us if people are good to it. We know that people love to visit our charming town and we welcome them, but they need to help us keep a grip on the situation! We need to do this together.
To Joyce, all I can say is hang in there, we are known for our resiliency. This too shall pass and, hopefully, we’ll be stronger for it!
