Is it going to take a mountain of tickets on your mail shelves for you to say, “can’t even pay my rent so, these tickets are going to be pushed aside too?” Is it going to take a total and complete “STAY INSIDE WITH NO VISITORS” order, instead of suggesting it? Is it going to take a really tough stance on this issue, with people unable to get back to be patriated as well as those who are ignoring logical steps to be locked up in facilities or even prisons/jails? Exactly what is it going to take for people to get the message that this coronavirus is potentially a killer virus and we all need to help ourselves because there are no medicines for it, no vaccines and people, including front line workers are getting sick and even dying because of other people’s thoughtlessnesses or even disbelief that it’s all real?
While people are scrambling to make home made masks that won’t necessarily protect them anymore than wearing paper towel across their faces will, others are busy creating conspiracy theories about it not being real to it’s over or all sorts of crazy concocted stories that they will put out because people will buy into them mentally and emotionally.
Get this straight, right here and now. There is no one who is immune to this virus and there’s no way that one can conduct normal life without risking being infected. If someone believes themselves to be immune to getting it or that it doesn’t exist, those persons are risking not only other people’s lives but, their friends, family and other loved one’s lives by having such a crazy notion.
Let’s face it. There is a lot of misinformation out there on the net and even in the news because it sells air time. It can be said that a lot of people believe that as long as they have a bottle or two of hand sanitizer, they are safe. Guess again. Also take into account that anyone can say whatever they want on the net and even if they believe it all to be true, it isn’t. It’s their thinking. Even my own opinions which I spew out here aren’t scientific and are all only my own opinion. The CDC and the W.H.O. are continuously changing their thinking on the topic with regularity. One thing that has held to this day though is that about the only thing that each of us can do about this situation, in spite of those who will declare that using lemon juice will kill the virus, conspiracy theorists etc., aren’t at all authorities on this virus. No one is. Everyone is guessing but, the fact remains that one cannot catch that which one doesn’t come in contact with.
One quite wise and older doctor said to me one day, upon marching in with printed sheets off the net (which was in the earliest days at the time),
“you can get enough information to get yourself into trouble off the net but, not enough to get yourself out of it.” How correct he was when he said that now some 20 years ago or so.
So, what about you? Are you going to be the one with your head stuck in the sand like an ostrich because some conspiracy theorist has wrought some type of theory that makes you feel mentally and emotionally smug? What about those who will take information off of the net and videos as though it’s gospel truth? Does anyone know their true motives? How does one weed out those who are mentally unhealthy or out to make a buck? Can one do it?
So from my little corner of life to yours, what’s it going to take for you to consider the idea that ripping down signs, ignoring government rulings based upon health information from reputable sources or what one may deem as such, to self-isolate, social distance, wash your hands frequently with plain old soap and water for 20 seconds and keep the laws in your head even if they change by the hour or day? What’s it going to take to make you see that you’re potentially endangering not only your own life but, those of others that you may care about?
Stop the non-sense and abide by your country’s laws. Even if you don’t agree with them, they are there. Stop dilly-dallying and playing with it or, you too could end up with being DEAD!
That was to those people who are still ignoring regulatory laws because of the above, as I watch my across the street neighbours having their son over and he works for a grocery chain store as does her husband and yet the wife doesn’t leave the house for much of anything. Whether she reads this or not, I don’t care. They are amongst those who are defeating the purposes and laws.
If you wish to do more stay away from others outside of your home and keep washing those hands.
Love and Light.
