From “I Want to Believe” to “I Have to Believe”

I’m pretty sure that the above image is fake, and that’s the biggest detriment to the belief of extraterrestrial life.

Dearest Corona, Purveyor of Fear

You may be a virus, But you are spreading fear, Far and near, To the youngest and oldest among us. We now walk around afraid to breathe, We’ve been stripped away of things that bring us delight, Everywhere we go there is the feeling of fright, The world looks like a scary dream. Yes, you
