Ummmmm, is it?
I think the overwhelming vibe right now is confusion.
I think we’ve done shock, we’ve done the ‘oh wow this is serious’ and we’ve done annoyed.
Now confusion reigns.
Really? Is the overwhelming ‘vibe’ confusion?
I think we all get these are unprecedented times, we all appreciate this is a bit if a moving feast and we all get that there will be all sorts of teething problems and issues that will arise because we are in totally unchartered waters.
However, I think the overwhelming ‘vibe’ is a genuine thanking Christ moment that Jacinda Ardern is the one leading us through this and not Simon Bridges.
I think the overwhelming ‘vibe’ is a deep gratitude to the Nurses, Drs, Pharmacists, Police, Military, Teachers and essential service providers who are still working and risking exposure to keep the country going.
I think the overwhelming ‘vibe’ is a reminder of how fragile our way of life is and the deep questions about free market capitalism we will need to answer as we work to rebuild from this.
Kate Hawkesby feeling confused seems to say more about her than the moment itself.
