The Plague There's a disease abroad. Our fortitude is being tested daily on the streets. The air is filled with loathing like a germ that replicates itself in hidden ways, attacking all the things we thought were true, invading spaces we once knew as safe. A virus spreads among us as we bear witness to the horror it provokes. We're like the hosts floating on the seas in hope of finding safer, kinder shores, unsure of our direction but attacked and beaten for the crime of being lost. Perhaps one day we will find a cure but know the only vaccine now is love.
