‘Time, patience, effort’

Dear Editor:

In the novel The Plague by Albert Camus  (he won the Nobel prize for literature), the author states, “our townsfolk were like everybody else, wrapped up in themselves; in other words, they were humanists: they disbelieved in pestilences.

“They went on doing business, arranged for journeys, and formed views. How should they have given a thought to anything like plague, which rules out any future, cancels journeys, silences the exchange of views.”

Perhaps anyone who presumes that he knows more than the many health experts that have laid out the simple steps for all of us to follow so that we may one day soon become COVID-free should take the time to read this book and maybe think seriously about what is good for all of us.

Thank goodness that we have a thinking man like Kelly Linton as our mayor in Centre Wellington. We all have to do our part and listen to the experts and follow the laws so that we may get everything back to normal. But it will take time, patience and effort.
