Like Murphy observed, whatever would wrong will always go wrong. It is not that things would go wrong, the most important thing is that you do not go wrong with things. There is a lot of anxiety, hysteria, worry around the world with the COV-ID 19 pandemic but in times like this we all need to say the Serenity Prayer and live by it:
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
It is normal in trying times like this to worry for the future but the thing about the future is that ??????
