Life After Lockdown: Need for Change

The human race has come a long way in the last 200,000 years. We have the innate ability to adapt to change, and now we are currently facing the most significant changes we will ever have to make. Climate change, overpopulation, pollution, and on top these three serious contenders, COVID-19 is raining down on us all.  

With each Lockdown day, the way I think is changing. I appreciate what I have more than ever before. I’ve worked hard to achieve it, but the niggling, what I am going to do when all this is over, thoughts are ever-present.

If my body is is resilient enough to survive this storm, the dream of selling up, scaling down, and going to live further south is something that has always been on the back burner for as long as I can remember. I’m not sure how achievable that goal is now after COVID-19 and what, for me, will always be referred to as Bloody Brexit (BB). What self-respecting European nation would want another Brit putting down roots in their country to live out the rest of their lives? Despite being a staunch Remainder, by birth alone, I will forever be associated with the BB fiasco.

Life after Lockdown

If changes are to be made, they have to be implemented globally and geared towards a fairer society. We are a long way off from starting to make any changes yet, we need to weather the COVID-19 storm first, but the human race is a resilient species. With the help of the global scientific community, we will survive this cataclysmic period in our history but, then what?
