Thank you for putting misery into perspective.

It’s easy to fall prey to a myopic, egocentric worldview, which imagines our current reality as the worst.

Subjectively, it may be bad. Maybe it is my worst year, but humanity has lived through much worst – incredible evil and horrific tragedy and loss.

I had heard the name The Dark Ages before, but I didn’t know that the name was a literal reference. Fascinating. No, I truly cannot fathom being plunged into cold darkness where I would begin to starve to death. Horrible.

Thanks for the perspective. Great story. l loved the historical reference too.
