The response to COVID-19 by the world has been full of confusion! Due to the unfortunate fact that 2020 is a Presidential Election year, matters of public health have become politicized in ways that have expanded the dividing lines that pull our country apart. The use of masks has unfortunately become a topic of confusion and contention in the United States. Interestingly, the American spirit hasn’t changed much throughout history. During the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic masks became a part of the strategy employed to limit the spread of the flu. While many complied, many others refused. People complained the masks were ineffective, uncomfortable, bad for business, or unnecessary because officials were not complying with the mandate for masks.

Life is full of ups and downs, we struggle to keep ourselves sharp inspite of the daily struggles we go through. Sometimes I like to view life from a perspective of a pencil, Our daily activities either bad or good are prints that will always be remembered after we're long gone. We should be concious and intentional about how we live on the surface of the earth because death is innevitable and the only things that can advocate for us are the memories we left in the heart of everyone we crossed path with. We significantly share same fate as a pencil. "our marks holds more value that our existence". #mindsAFRICA #MINDS #life #sunday
