Growing up in a Catholic household, the letters B. C. means Before Christ and A.C. means After Christ. This is manifested in the Bible with 2 parts: The Old and the New Testament.
However in 2021 with reference to 2020 as well, the letters B.C. & A.C. mean to me now as B.C.(Before Covid-19) and A.C.(After Covid-19).
With disease incidence rates still going up and down in many parts of the world as well as an ongoing worldwide recruitment and implementation of vaccinations, we are now seeing many countries already starting some degree of normalcy in everyday living in a graduated fashion. Plans for a regular post-pandemic life has targeted starting dates ranging from this coming summer season to the end of this year.
The light at the end of the tunnel is there. Until we do reach the finish line, only time can tell. Be patient. We have already come this far already. What a difference a year makes. Who knew?
In the meantime, please keep the faith, continue to mask up, keep the social distance, sanitize your hands, self-isolate if need be and stay safe!
We are all in this together!
