The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm Founder, Victoria L Collier, Takes An Imaginary Journey Into The Summer, Wondering What Lies Ahead For Everyone.
Estate & Asset Protection Attorney, Victoria Collier uses two of her favorite songs to jump into a summer daydream that is certainly unlike any ordinary summer daydream that came before the COVID-19 pandemic.
DECATUR, GA, June 14, 2020: Victoria L. Collier, founder of The Estate & Asset Protection Law Firm, has posted a new article on her law firm’s website entitled “Summertime And The Pandemic Is On My Mind,” in which Ms. Collier ventures a guess about how this summer will be different from all those that came before.
Collier writes, “Living in Georgia, as I do, the beautiful Ray Charles song, Georgia On My Mind, is a favorite.” She continues, “Also, Summertime And The Living Is Easy, has been a favorite. And, yes, I do realize I have combined both of them in the title of this blog.” Collier goes on to add, “As we move deeper into the summer months, however, I realize I have only one new tune that’s getting old playing in a loop on my mind: The pandemic. I wonder how we, as a nation are going to stay safe and still enjoy this favorite time of the year. I wonder how my family, friends, colleagues and clients are going to fare.”
As Collier points out, “This is probably the first time any of us have had to face a summer with no baseball and no ice cream trucks. There will be no gathering together in community pools where the kids can play in joyful abandon.” She shares that, “When I asked my son what he was going to do for the day, he replied, “whatever I can with all this social distancing.” She goes on the add, “It feels like the pandemic is stretching a massive NO FUN sign across the summer.”
“With that being said,” Collier writes, “I also know there are people, way too many people who have bigger issues on their mind.” She elaborates, “Too many are wondering: How am I going to honor my loved one who died from coronavirus? How am I going to manage everything they left behind? How will they find peace? How will I make peace with what has happened? Am I safe? Are my children safe? Are my clients safe? Will I get the virus too?”
Collier says, “My heart goes out to all the people who have lost loved ones as a result of this pandemic, either directly or indirectly.” She further adds, “I’m beginning to read about people who have had serious surgical procedures postponed due to COVID-19 and have subsequently died because they didn’t get the procedure they needed. In fact,” she adds, “my father-in-law has been scheduled for heart surgery for the past few weeks and is still waiting.” She states, “The domino effect is sure to reveal many more tragic events as we move through this historic time.”
