Everybody is experiencing trauma right now.

 There's no mistake about it: everyone is experiencing trauma right now. This pandemic has been.... insane.  It has upended every aspect of modern life - and revealed a lot of ugly truths in people's personal lives but also many ugly truths about the society we live in. Like...a  lot of ugly truths. There is a lot of anguish, suffering and disparity now.

How people are coping is something else too. Some people become introspective. Head down and just try to deal best they can. Others... well, they're pretending nothing is wrong. Indulging in things maybe they shouldn't.... coping is such a weird thing.  And I know a lot of us are doing it.

I hope society can do better after this.  There's a lot of sadness, anger and disparity.
