Do not waste your time complaining

I do not know the author of the following short story but I think it fits the situation we are all facing with the covid19 virus. Posted on the internet by Dan Western.
People visited a wise man complaining about the same problems over and over again. One day, he decided to tell them a joke and they all roared with laughter. After a few minutes, he told them the same joke and only a few of them smiled. Then he told the same joke for a third time, but no one laughed or smiled anymore. The wise man smiled and said: ‘You can’t laugh at the same joke over and over. So why are you always crying about the same problem?'”
Let's take time to think about all the good that is coming out of thses trying days and a special thank you to all those working in healthcare, first responders, teachers and parents who are now home school teachers.
