    I have no thoughts/feelings or fears towards the ebola outbreak.. IMO, it's just another thing the media and people are magnifying to spread the fear. We go through it all the time, like with H1N1, and yet the world keeps spinning.

    I agree with what innerlight has said here...my thoughts exactly.  I would add that it is a little
    worrying that we, apparently, have only 2 isolating beds (properly equipped) to deal with this
    should an outbreak occur in UK.

    When it comes to the Ebola Outbreak, We want the Movie, not the Science.

    There have been diseases since the beginning of time...and there will probably be diseases until the end of time. 

    You live, you die. 

    That is a fact of life, so, why be scared? 

    Just live your life to the best of your ability and share the love that you carry inside of you.

    The world is, as it always has been. Sickness, disease, death, has always existed. And we have survived, persevered, and become strong because of it. Sadly, so has war and violence. It just happens that in this era, we live in a world of fear and paranoia. Where those things are magnified, as the media and social media feeds those fires to continue the fear... Now we just have the technology to be aware of more of it, unlike in times of past. Now it's all in peoples faces.

    Today people are so afraid to go outside, when they do they get all their shots to protect them, get their hand sanitizers.. Growing up.. We played in the mud. We drank from the hose. We lived. That, is unheard of today.

    The West has been shamefully slow and lacklustre in its response. As a result the disease now has an established bridgehead in West Africa.
    Given the global village and ease of travel it is inevitable it will reach these shores. 
    Are we prepared? No.
    Expect the tabloids to whip up hysteria within the next week or two.

    Ignore the Movie, read up on the science about the virus. This sort of thing has been around from the begining of our world.

    We live in a different time now. It's a time of fear and paranoia, running the world.. If your childhood that you went through then, was today, it would be like it is now. All of that would be on the front page of your web browser, trying to push it's fear onto you... Yet, the world kept spinning.

    Sadly, some will always suffer from any illness. I do wonder if illness is natures way of keeping the world in check.

    I have to laugh at the Media panic mongering. The Movie they like, is the one of vacant streets, lined with burnt out buildings, and melted cars. With an occasional zombie staggering down the middle. That is fine for entertainment, but not for real science.

    I think it was only recognised in the 70s,  it seems no one is really concerned or worried about it, I find that surprising.

    If we worried about every little illness, or cough and sniffle, we'd all want to live in a bubble, unable to get on with our lives.

    If you have not been to Africa or in contact with someone who has Ebola, you are quite safe.

    Never stayed in Africa but for one day and that off the boat traveling back to the UK from Australia and that was in 1969.

    So don't think it would affect me now....

    Hmm a bit more worrying than a sniffle innerlight, you're right to say it shouldnt take over life but dont you think ee should be observant/cautious?
