Hi, my name&';s Gnormal and I&';m a Gnu. I&';m here to tell you what the New Normal will look like. You can take my word for it. But you don&';t have to. Just look around.
Balance the imbalanced
Living in a Pandemic is the new normal. Yes, vaccines are rolling out. Yes, new variants of COVID-19 are surfacing. Social distancing and masks might be going away, but some will still observe those customs. Remote meetings via Zoom or some other app will continue. Some office buildings will no longer house office workers. They may house the homeless or they may be turned into warehouses. Remote work will continue to be a way of life for many.
We will value more the lives of those who mattered less to society. This includes all people of color. This includes those who perform menial labor. This includes those who serve and support us. While we may still wish to be rich, we will want wealth to help the less fortunate. Who are you going to serve or support with your wealth? How are you going to value their lives?
Climate Change has been brought to the forefront. 2020 saw the most tropical storms ever, some of which were very destructive. Greta Thunberg and other activists made sure that Climate Change was central in our minds. Climate Change has broken our lack of desire for change. The only way forward is to reverse the effects of Climate Change. How are you going to help?
Now is the time to embrace this transition. We all have a chance to help the world be a better place. There&';s no going back. The only way is forward.
Well, that&';s the world&';s new normal. But what about you? What will your new normal be? How will you make it a reality? If you&';re looking for help, ask my friend Dale Stubbart. He helps people. I help wild beasts.
