If you’re watching the news right now…

You’re either very brave or very stupid.

The amount of misinformation, speculation, and hearsay being circulated is almost criminal.

The sheer disregard that the news outlets are showing right now could cost people their lives – and they don’t seem to care about anything beyond getting higher ratings.

If you haven’t noticed…

Tragedy and fear sell when it comes to the mainstream media—so if you think things will change anytime soon, you’re going to be in for a rude awakening.

They’re pushing the worst of what COULD happen because of COVID-19…

But few are looking at the silver linings.

You may be shocked to hear that…

What silver lining could there be to the potential death of thousands, an economic crisis, and a nation on the verge of shutdown?

The Silver Lining Of A Pandemic

Well…

For starters, this outbreak could actually help heal the divide that has emerged between the two political sides over the last few years.

We could rediscover the compassion and cooperation that we had for decades before the rise of political correctness and divisiveness…

It could be a return to a time when people simply cared about what happened to their fellow Americans, regardless of what side of the political aisle they came from.

Another good thing about the coronavirus?

It’s showing America why socialism sucks.

Bernie was famous for praising communism and saying that bread lines were a “good thing” …

But as the nation now finds itself having to wait in lines for rationed toilet paper, they may be starting to see why allowing socialism to take hold in America isn’t the greatest idea.

If people are complaining now…

Can you imagine the number of complaints they’d be leveling at the government for having to wait for things like milk, eggs, or cheese? At least now those things can be restocked every night. Imagine waiting in line only to discover that those items aren’t available—and WON’T be available for a LONG time.

Or better yet…

It’s showing people the stifling effects of mandatory curfews and martial law (things that were common under communist systems). How do you think these young, Bernie-supporting kids are going to like having to be holed up with nothing to protest?

It’s giving them a glimpse of what life could be like under socialism…

And hopefully, they’ll have the self-awareness to recognize the dangers of the system they support.

In that same vein, hopefully, it will also give them an appreciation for their Second Amendment rights, as they see people scrambling to buy firearms in order to protect what’s theirs.

Funny how things look a lot different under the cloud of fear and anxiety, right?

The BIGGEST Hope To Hold On To

But there is one more reason that the coronavirus could be good for our country…

And that’s the fact that it could give Trump the ability to truly transform our country into the strongest nation we’ve EVER been.

We may get a political “reset” as far as the government is concerned…

Our lawmakers can put aside their petty partisan differences and work together with a singular vision of bettering our country.

If the Democrats can put their agenda aside for the ACTUAL good of the country, we could truly begin to actually make America GREAT again.

It may sound like a tall order…

But stranger things have happened.

What is for sure is that we can’t dwell on only the negative. If we do, it’ll beat us down and push us into a state of depression that will be hard to pull ourselves out of.

There’s going to be a lot of bad during this difficult time…

But there will be good too.

Keep your focus on that – and the coming downtime will fly by.

That perches in the soul

And sings the tune without the words

And never stops at all.” ― Emily Dickinson
