Living in COVID times

An amazing man whom I respect wrote this post:

"I’m NOT a doctor or a scientist. 
But I have an opinion.

As a Christian, I believe God Almighty created our immune system to protect us. 

But it can’t do it’s job unless it’s exposed to viruses like #covid19. 

I think in the near future, they’ll discover that masks were NOT helpful (except at a higher risk). 

That it would have been better to get exposed, get over it, get exposed, get over it, for 5-7 times and then you’ll have immunity

Here is my response:

I understand the logic, your faith position and agree with most of it. 

Not everyone has a good immune system at all times. If we could somehow quantify the level of each person's immunity, we could face COVID and live differently. 

There is a fine line between faith and presumption. We live by faith and not by sight. We also don't put God (or ourselves) to a foolish test. We protect ourselves to the best ability and trust God for his help. 

There is always two sides, two parts of responsibility in this world. We do our part and God performs his Word and Will. We are partners on earth. 

We should never willingly fail in our part and God will not fail us in His part. So the decision, our responsibility in COVID, is pretty clear to me.

Cars powered by the Sun

The future is bright for using the power of the sun to move people around. This week I began my journey as a brand ambassador for Aptera. My goal is to help rural areas experience EV cars for work and play in Michigan's four seasons.    

I Faced Death Today

Today is my cat's last day. He has an incurable condition that will eventually lead him to suffocation or heart attack. We are removing the possibility of suffering by putting him down. There isn't a more uncomfortable task we have in life than to face death. Especially when it is someone we love. We don't like to think of our own death either. Most lack a living will, money to cover burial expenses. not to mention leaving a legacy or lasting value behind. Avoiding death is the same thing as negligence. It's a failure to embrace the inevitable. We are celebrating Toby's life today but that's not enough to ease our crying eyes and sobs. We need to consider our own passing. Now. Have you planned your end? Are you now prepared? What is your legacy?

Do You Face the Future?

I believe that people by nature are "future facing". This simply means that we look forward to the future, wonder what it'll be like, how we will live, and what will be different.  When we're not future facing, that should warn us of a problem. It means that we have to run the diagnostics on our life to see what's wrong and get help if we need it.
