'There's no reason we shouldn't have a little bit where we can feel like life is normal, just for a second."

The young man seemed to speak for all of us. With devastating simplicity, he had summed up so much.

We all know that the old normal is gone for now. We know there'll be a new normal now for a while. But still we look for those moments when you can just forget it for a split second - moments when you can pretend that none of this ever happened. But we can't, because it permeates everything. There is no let-up from this bastard virus.
