  • This is not something any would choose.
  • This has been forced upon us.
  • It’s bad and it’s hard.
  • It fuels our deepest fears.
  • Our need to live is the center of the universe.
  • It separates us from those we love.
  • The simple basics for living increase in value.
  • Time slows down, almost has no meaning.
  • Not everyone will survive this challenge.
  • Eternity seems more near.

  • They choose joy where joy is in short supply.
