Pandemic and Panic vs. Perspective and Prayer — Elihu’s Corner


According to the CDC, roughly 56,000 people die from the flu each year. According to the NHTSA, 36,560 people died in car accidents in 2019. At the present time, there have been 12 deaths from Coronavirus in the U.S. Yes, you read that correctly: that’s a two-digit twelve without any additional zeros. It’s possible that the virus could become a pandemic. It’s possible that more will die. It’s possible that the fears are legitimate, but that could have been the case with Ebola, SARS, MERS, etcetera. I could panic… …Or I could face the fact that death could come at me in other ways—car accident, tornado, cancer, flu, etc. Some things are just beyond my control. It’s time to accept our limitations.
