Our minds are very interesting. The brain blocks out certain things to protect you or for you to forget something. The thing is that you can’t forget about everything. Covid has only gotten worse because we in the U.S have reached over 100 million cases (updated). That’s a lot of people. I still can’t wrap my head around the fact that we are doing so bad. Covid has gotten so bad that millions of cute creatures (minks) were killed because of it. So many people are still traveling and entertaining people which is not ok. I had to cut my Thanksgiving flight because the CDC recommended that no one even celebrate the holiday. I was not about to risk my life right now so I pushed back the date to Christmas. Of course that didn’t stop others from traveling.
This is why I can’t get sad about people who get covid other than the innocent parties. Yes, it’s sad when someone gets it but when you knew the consequences and you are traveling and partying, what did you expect. The only people I felt sorry for was the children and the elderly. That is because the staff gave it to the elderly in nursing homes. The truth is that we have a virus and hopefully a vaccine soon. You want to rush the vaccine but we as people have to do our parts as citizens.
Something shocking happened recently with all the other shocking things this week. Trump finally said that covid is serious. I say shocking because I don’t think he ever realized how bad it is. He was only focused on winning the election. There comes a time when you have to get serious about your surroundings. The current death count is so high that doctors were literally pleading for people to not travel. It was very sad just to realize how much they are doing. How selfish of us. We are so blind that we can’t see who is doing all the work. How many more people will die until you realize it could be you?
