Your article speaks straight to my heart. I live in southern California where insanity is raging on the beaches and streets right now. This movement that is gathering momentum to “end the lock-down” is insane. People are standing shoulder to shoulder without masks demanding “freedom.”
What they are about to receive is sickness and a longer isolation period. An economy which was about to reopen in an orderly way will likely now be shut down for some time to come.
My friend, a doctor in a COVID unit at UCI tells me that the unit, which you formerly could “shoot a cannonball through because it was so empty,” is now bursting at the seams from the repercussions of these protestors.
Nobody is comfortable right now. My husband and I had COVID-19 in March. We were very sick, but we survived. A lot of people won’t. We own a small business, which is struggling. But we understand what will happen if we don’t respect what the doctors and scientists are telling us.
Your powerful article should be shared far and wide. Yes, this is a tough time. But it is a time from which we can all learn. It is a time to create new patterns for a new paradigm.
