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.
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.
