“Social distancing” is, as to be expected, trending on Google. Depending on whom you listen to, you should stay at least three, six, or ten feet from other humans.

Apparently, the droplets that carry the coronavirus inside a sneeze or a cough travel up to ten feet. Hence, the distance you should stay away from people during this pandemic.

The family and I are doing a very good job with social distancing (also called physical distancing). We simply stay home and stay away from others.

But you know what? I feel a closeness to my family that I haven’t before. We’re cooking together, studying together, and working together.

Yes, we HAVE to. But it doesn’t feel forced. It feels like this is how family really should be.

So in a weird sense, this virus is bringing us closer together, and for that, I will be eternally grateful.
