Very well written. You had my attention the whole way through. It's sad that we do tend to both believe the worst in people rather than wait to hear the truth, and that we pounce on the gossip so eagerly. A really great entry, hope you go well!
How true that an outbreak of gossip can do as much damage as a deadly virus. Excellent message without coming across as preachy.

interesting the parallel story of the bird virus and the gossip i would have liked them to be a little more intertwined somehow.or one or the other. good writing though
