It is no secret COVID-19 has turned all our lives around, from the Toilet Paper
Madness, the working at home necessity, schooling our children from home, social
distancing and wearing masks and gloves where ever we go.
Our government doesn’t get it, we did learn from our mistake from the 2008-
2009 Recession. We adapted, we thrived, we made our life better. No one man
or woman can do this alone. No one man or woman can take credit for all our
hard work and achievement. It is foolish, it is egotistical and totally insane.
40,000 plus life has been lost, that is not acceptable. There is no cure. There isn’t any type of medicine to help you get over this virus. We are flying blind here.
Personally, I lost a great friend, my husband lost a family member. The losses are great, they are painful, they are real. I have to protect my elderly Mom, my handicapped son, my daughter who has a respiratory condition.
We all work paycheck to paycheck and we all need to go back to work, but we also need to feel safe, we need the assurance of equality and we need great leadership to survive.
We are all in this together. The Coronavirus doesn’t discriminate. There is No Red or Blue states. There is only “WE”.
Call your governor, your congressman, your representative, your local official, tell them without us “we the people” there isn’t anything to govern.
