I was just wondering this morning what we all would have done if there had been no internet invented before the onset of covid-19. How would we keep up our blogging? How would we research best practices for covid-19 symptoms? How could we have virtual meetings with doctors? How could we keep up to date with loved ones, family and friends without facetime? How would the kids be doing their remote learning in grade schools, high schools and colleges? How would we keep up with workplace meetings on Zoom? Just imagine how much more isolated we would be feeling without any of these coping mechanisms. Perhaps we need a shout-out to the internet to give thanks for our ability to connect (however limited) to each other in these uncertain times.

I’ve thought about that too. All of this would be far, far more difficult without the internet.
You are very right. If we didn’t have the Internet, things would be really awful right now. As it is, I don’t feel particularly directly affected by the pandemic, but otherwise, if there was no Internet, I’d surely go insane by now.
