DO NOT TOUCH
I read a newspaper article; it was about the lives devastated by Ebola. I read about a mother, Precious, whose baby, Rebecca, was dying from Ebola – in pain, afraid and very sick…
Precious had to make a decision – pick up her weakened, crying baby and risk catching the virus or ignore her pleas for comfort from her mother?
I dwelled on that dilemma. What would I do as a mother myself in her situation?
Ebola thrives on touch and in a country like West Africa where physical contact is a part of their culture it has spread quickly and killed thousands.
Touch is now Taboo. DO NOT TOUCH.
Rebecca died days later. Precious contracted Ebola, survived but now faces a different life.
