Flashback Friday: The Plague (2005)

In the collective mind of humanity, we tend to believe that we are above Mother Nature. We forget that not only are we not above Mother Nature, but we are also still under her control.

The Plague was a documentary that premiered on the History Channel in 2005. It told the story of the Black Plague. Between the years of 1346 & 1353, millions were killed and Europe as it was back then was forever changed.

Watching this in 2020, it strikes me how relevant it is. Though Covid-19 does not have the same power over us that the Black Plague had in the 14th century, the repercussions have not changed. In spite of the science that has saved lives, human beings have not changed. There are still some among us who disbelieve the news and others who think that it is a punishment from the eternal parent upstairs.

I recommend it.
