Panicked Teachers Creating Wills
It’s 2023. People are still fighting about whether or not the virus is a hoax or not. Even at the point where people were dying in the hospital, others still proclaimed that the Covid-19 pandemic was a “plandemic.” This is inspite of the fact that humanity has gone through several periods of widespread disease before: influenza and the black plague are just a few examples. Teachers who were still teaching in class at this time were insulted and berated for panicking and drawing up their Wills.
The COVID-19 pandemic has caused many people to confront their own mortality and take steps to prepare for the worst. For teachers, the pandemic brought a unique set of challenges, including the risk of exposure to the virus in schools and the uncertainty of what would happen to their students if they became ill or died.
As a result, many teachers found themselves making wills for the first time. In some cases, they did so out of a sense of responsibility to their students and their own families. They wanted to ensure that their wishes were clear and that their loved ones would be taken care of if the worst happened.
In other cases, teachers made wills because they were worried about the legal and financial implications of becoming ill or dying during the pandemic. They wanted to make sure that their assets were distributed according to their wishes and that their loved ones would not be burdened with legal or financial issues in their absence.
The pandemic has also highlighted the importance of having a clear and comprehensive estate plan. This includes not only a will but also other documents such as a power of attorney and a living will. These documents can ensure that a person’s wishes are respected if they become incapacitated or unable to make decisions for themselves.
While it’s understandable that many teachers felt a sense of urgency to make wills during the pandemic, it’s important to remember that estate planning is an ongoing process. As life circumstances change, it’s important to update and revise one’s estate plan to reflect new priorities and needs.
Overall, the pandemic has reminded us all of the importance of being prepared for the unexpected. Making a will is one way to ensure that our wishes are respected and our loved ones are taken care of if the worst happens.
