March Meltdown

March 2020 will go down in history as the month that started the quartine lockdown for US citizens. The effects of this pandemic are changing everything from supply chains, schooling to everyday life. Millions are losing their jobs at record pace and many will not have jobs to go back to once this is all over. The stock market took its biggest hit thus far March 20th and has been bouncing in every direction depending on the news. It's even harder to believe that 2020 is an election cycle. Joe Biden seems to be the candidate even though Bernie Sanders is still running. Joe has been nonexistent during this pandemic and when he does surface he is borderline incoherent. The news and political system are fledging an all-out war against each other as they blame one another for Covid 19 blame. It is disturbing to see how some of the politicians are acting during this time. With deaths passing 9-11 and unemployment on the brink of 2008 numbers it really does seem like we are living in a simulation. Millennials have been through the wringer and I am reminded of past generations that went to war and lived through massive economic upheavals. Social media is only exasperating the problem as anecdotal stories reach millions of people at record speed. We will recover but how long will it take? What habits will be kept after this is over? The questions that are being raised will affect generations to come.
