While my hands are better and are now able to function normally without pain, my heart is broken for the world.
Broken for all those affected by the virus. We ourselves have had family who have had the virus and been sick. Friends who family members who have been sick with the virus. It hurts to see people make jokes about Covid-19 being a hoax, fake, saying only elderly people are at risk. Really? Do elderly people not count as people, someone’s mother, father, brother, sister, grandparent? Would it not hurt just as much to lose them?
It’s not just elderly people. People at all ages are at risk. My son for instance, is ten years old, he usually has several lung infections a year. He has asthma and a sunken chest. He won’t be able to attend school in the Fall should it open.
I am 36 years old, I have asthma and celiacs which is considered an autoimmune disease. I am at risk. We are not the only ones in this world with these health issues, please consider that. Even people without prior health issues have died.
Broken for the people who are told to shush, when they speak out and stand up for others. I have spoken up on social media platforms, I have lost friends and family. I am okay with that. If you chose to unfollow my blog after this then do be it but the fact of the matter is, you cannot just go around killing people.
This is a picture I found and shared on my Instagram and it speaks volumes.
I‘ve had people try to argue with me “oh if they weren’t doing anything wrong, they would not have been shot”. Don’t you just find that sad? Little girls have been shot while in their beds, these same people cannot answer me about what those little girls were doing wrong. You don’t just kill people. If people are committing a crime, arrest them and give them their day in court.
I’m not sorry for posting this because it’s truly how I feel. I was raised in a family where you judged someone based off their character, not the color of their skin. I went to a school with kids from all over the world, different races, sexualities, religious beliefs. Am I saying everyone got along? No I’m not, but any fights I witnessed or were big topics around the school was boys fighting over a girl or girls fighting over a boy.
I’m not sure what else to add here, other than don’t be on the wrong side of history. Love each other, educate each other, and instead of going out of your way to annoy each other, sit down and have a serious conversation. The name calling that has been going on, it hurts to see. there is no need for it.
Love you all, have a great week folks.
