My word: Can history help us through uncertain times?

Readers Lounge - By Christine Koech | March 28th 2020 at 12:15:00 GMT +0300

In uncertain times, what did those who have gone before us do?

One thing human beings do when they don’t know what to do is to turn to history.

They look back at what other people did when they were in their shoes.

And such is a time when many people don’t know what to do.

Apart for a handful of people, the rest have never experienced a pandemic in their lifetime.

And among the handful, none will remember what happened.

  1. READ MORE
  2. 1. #MyWord: The freedom to be
  3. 2. Struggling Parisian shops get creative to survive in second lockdown
  4. 3. Researchers discover most common symptom of COVID-19 and it's not a dry cough
  5. 4. Woman left in stitches as she reads back list of goals she made in January 2020

And so this makes things even more uncertain. That we have to turn to books and folklore to learn what happened 100 years ago.

What did they do? How did it all pan out? How in the world did they get through this?

We seek the answers to these questions and more every day.

In our careers, in our businesses, in our studies and even in our spiritual and romantic lives.

And the answer always seems to be the same.

Listening. Understanding. Preparing. Hoping. Believing.

Waiting.

Waiting.

Waiting...
