There are hundreds of stories available about zombies, about what they would do in this world if they really walked this earth. That is just what they are, stories. They are full of false realities and misconceptions of the mind. The dead cannot walk, the dead cannot breathe, and the dead cannot eat.
But the living can.
A virus is a living organism. It is not different than you or I. It merely wants to survive. And what it will do to survive, what it can do is more than equal to the genocide that man fostered towards his fellow man on this planet.
In some cases, the effect of a biological virus is very similar to a computer virus. Either can erase memories, change how we perform, and spread it self throughout countries and continents.
Some of us live in fear of infections, viruses and diseases. We ask God to protect us and keep us safe from harm. But what if our prayers go unanswered? What if God felt we needed suffering to change how we think?
And what if the path to our own salvation brought us face to face with our darkest fears? Would it bring a new beginning?
