One thing only. For the philosophers of the future.

COVID-19 is erasing us. Systematically, but pretty randomly when we do not know the algorithm it’s using.

When it’s done, we’ll meet (those of us who’ll still be here) and wonder about all the people prematurely erased. Deleted. Missing.

We’ll refer someone to a brilliant colleague in town, only to get a call back that the colleague is no more. COVID-19. We’ll call up our child’s teacher to see where we start after the pandemic, only to get no answer, and to later be told that the teacher succumbed. To COVID-19.

We’ll ask our friends what happened to the newspaper guy at the corner near our house, and be told that he doesn’t come any more. Erased. By COVID-19.

We’ll meet up at family reunions, diminished in size and stature, and wonder what happened to our raucous cousin, only to be told that we’ll not be seeing this cousin again. Because of COVID-19.

The world is being reformatted. By a virus. And nobody knows what code it’s using.

We must keep safe long enough to see this post-COVID-19 world.
