Has any one ever worried about losing their country before?

Hi all hope you are doing well. I try to support others in the community by assuring them they are strong enough to deal with their issues. I have been lucky enough in my life to have had solid people do that for me. But my mom always told me some people are palms and others are oaks and it’s actually the strong tree that breaks with gusts during a storm while the limber tree bends with the wind.

Until today I have been fairing as good as a person with an anxiety disorder could be under the threat of this pandemic. I live in NYC and the environment reflects all the dismal things you hear on the news. Before you know it you are either hearing stories about people you know or knew who are effected and so not to trigger anyone I will not get into any other details. Keeping myself somewhat sane has been tough and today I got scared of being sick and then a another haunting thought cane to me...What if my country breaks...what if I lose my country?

After 9/11 it was a few days before most people returned to work that could. I did the same . You knew waking the streets that country had changed but America was still there. However for the first time in my life with this pandemic I am scared of losing my country.

As strong as it has been in its history I am worried that the whole structure can break from this pandemic.

Hello Tikirob

Welcome back you need to consider World History and look at the 1917/18 Flu epidemic at the time of WW 1, After millions of deaths due to Trench Warfare the World was attacked by a severe Flu Pandemic. Many people died, People were also damaged by the fighting it was a frightening time. And the world population was still able to move on and able to give birth to future generations.

The same happened in Europe in 1665, Populations where decimated and in 1666 Fire of London brought down the buildings that harboured the illness.

Man still carried on and the People bred and the population raised once more. Sometimes populations need a natural cull, To be honest, get on with your Life, The population always bounces back, sometimes a culling is what is needed, however that is no comfort to those who are frightened in times like these.

Keep of the streets as much as possible, stay at home, remember there were many Pandemics through History has cropped the population, we are no different

Thanks Bob. I appreciate all the points you made. Get on with your life is a bit tough right now. propaganda is being used here in America. It’s very hard to trust the information we are getting here and the economy is falling apart. Our elections are coming up and working class people all over cannot work or are working as loved ones are getting sick. Martial law is being discussed. I believe things can get better but it’s really bad here in NYC.

Yes I understand what you are saying, It would seem like the UK, like America and Europe will be going through some rough times in the years to come, I wonder if this will lead us here to a Civil War, and keeping us locked up in our own homes is the beginning of a nasty period for the west.

All I can suggest is live your Life as best you can and I hope like America after this virus can move on to blue skies in the future. We are all stuck and it is very uncomfortable. the Broadcasters are not helping calling on the British stiff lip and trying to restrict our movement. I understand some of the shops here have made changes to their tills etc. Sad to say will these changes be left after all clear

China managed to be become clear and I think we are heading in the same direction - peak and levelling off to zero deaths due to coronavirus

Haha..too funny

hi tikrob worried about losing many people countries like yours have come through many battles and they will come through this.the world will be a changed place probably but we will go again.

I believe and hope and will be strong but all I can say is the country has never shut down like this. The politicians are all pointing fingers and the economy is collapsing - we rely so much on finance here. The federal government is making it clear they are not going to back up the states unless allegiances are made. And it’s bad here -

U r right,BUT "We will rise up my friend".

I wonder in the UK, how the Government has met the challenge been very slow. I sometimes wonder if this virus was introduced in China and America. To cut back on the population under the auspice of the WHO and United Nations, This virus under various guises has been knocking around for many years now, Heaven forbid if it mutates again, what will happen

Its those kind of conspiracy therories that creates panic and distrust in the world today! Its like the idiots going around burning the 5g masts who through their ridiculous belief that it is something to do with COVID19,and another I heard cats are responsible for the outbreak. All I can say is "GET A LIFE YOU IDIOTS" Atb,tina.🤗
