They did it, We should too!

Last week I received a message on Facebook telling me that my post was completely inappropriate because of a certain word I used making me an insensitive, hurtful and dangerous person. She has since opted out of Designers Circle.  My response:  Good Bye!

That being said, if I write about anything or use words that offend you, believe me when I say it’s not intentional. You may not agree with me and that is your right, just as it is my right to freedom of speech.

Let’s get on with the subject at hand. We are proud to be Arizona residents but I’m sure we did not want to be known as one of the top hot spots in the nation for the spreading of Covid 19. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why these numbers are going up so rapidly. Too many people feel that masks are “not for them.”  Hey, you are right, it’s not for you, it for the other people.  So if you don’t care about anyone but yourself, you are the problem.  

Notice the cat with the mask

During the 1918 pandemic the number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States. Mortality was high in people younger than 5 years old, 20-40 years old, and 65 years and older.  They were told to wear masks and do just about everything we are being told to do.

We are fortunate to have better medical knowledge in this area than they did in 1918, but we also have more idiots roaming the planet who feel that they are going to do what they want, no matter how it affects others.

As you can see by the notice on the right, the rules haven’t changed much.  Social distancing was encouraged, and again, there are many people in Arizona who seem to ignore this suggestion.  How is that working for you?

Personally, I do not want to be a statistic, and I know many of you feel the same way.  Let’s do what we must so we can live another day to love, laugh and celebrate.

    I was looking up information on COVID and saw in the 1918 about the face masks , very interesting. I do believe that all should ware face masks out in public , also signs should be posted in store windows that if you don’t have on a face mask , do not come in . I work at a Lowes as of Tuesday people coming in no masks and no sign in windows. Very sad that people are not helping others . Great post Nancy

    In the few days that have passed since you posted this informative post a few things have changed that should in my opinion already been in place, namely most cities in Arizona are now wanting Everyone to wear a mask when social distancing is not possible. To those that are concerned that wearing a mask is an infringement on rights as an American I say get over it. We are required to stop at a red light, wear seatbelts all in the name of saving lives, be it our own or anyone else. This is no different except in this case it’s not permanent. Also we should all be concerned about our amazing medical workers in dealing with this tragedy every day. Wearing a mask is just the decent humane contribution we can ask if ourselves to save lives.
