Wednesday, 3,124 Americans died from COVID-19 yet President Trump and his Minions keeps focusing on overthrowing the newly Elected President Biden.
President Trump and his Republican loyalists are pushing to toss the will of the people to stay rich and powerful while the rest of us are out of jobs, hungry, homeless, sick and dying.
We will reach the daily predicted 4,000 deaths soon yet we are allowing this selfish evil madness to go on.
We should be angry. We should be furious. We should be out in the streets shouting for justice for our death and suffering for the past 9 months. Instead, we allowed ourselves to be bullied. We allowed fear, laziness and numbness to rule. The vaccine will not end the death and economic devastation of the pandemic, its people willing to try their best to make a difference. Till then, we need more body bags and portable morgues.
CNN news last week featured a Republican Pastor who was using Religion and the Bible to tell people the pandemic is NOT real and sadly, many of his followers believe him. I have a Bible too but it says, “Love your neighbor as you love yourself,” NOT harm your neighbor and save yourself.
So many in America, even to their last breathe believes COVID-19 is NOT real, that they are dying of something else other than the truth the world already knows is true. What’s wrong with us? How do we expect to go back to normal in the distant future when we are in denial, defiance or indifferent? How do we rationalize to our children our irrational behavior and actions? How do we justify taking away our children’s hope and future by doing what we do now?
CDC director: US COVID-19 deaths likely to exceed 9/11 toll for 60 days – The Hill, 12/12/20
Please take COVID-19 seriously today and open our hearts to what’s really happening. America will have the darkest Christmas in decades. Krampus and Death will come down the chimney and knock on many doors to take away mom and dad.
It hurts my heart to tell my son we need to just make the most of everyday because his mom and dad are part of the dispensable Essentials that may get sick. I see a quiet sadness in his eyes but he understood the cruel reality of the new America will live in.
Sorry for not being able to respond to your comments lately. Been working in a community where everyone is a possible infectious COVID-19 source. So many sick of COVID-19 or having Flu-like symptoms that being depressed, tired and frustrated is just a normal everyday to a bedside Healthcare worker. We can cover the exterior with a nice superficial wrapping but the inside truth can never cover up the nightmare and ugliness we are forced to experience day in, day out.
In less than 2 weeks, many of our hospitals will run out ICU beds. Before Christmas, we will be begging for more help with critical and emergency care trained Medical Staff Professionals but there will be none. Unlike the vaccines and therapeutic treatments, we can NOT produce Doctors, Nurses and Respiratory Therapists from the lab unless we are GOD. When this event happens, we will witness an unimaginable horror we will never forget. The virus has already won so many times but pride and ego has blinded so many to change and fight. It’s an illusion to believe the pandemic will just go away next year like magic…even with the vaccine. Christmas miracle will not happen to those who refuse to try. Wearing a mask is a gift to live another day, another year.
“Nothing heroic being placed in a work condition where you may leave your love ones behind any day now. It’s a death sentence but we don’t have a choice.”
Today, we witness history as Americans receive the first batch of the COVID-19 vaccine. With humility and continued vigilance, it will be the beginning of the end to the pandemic. It is crucial that we do our part in taking the vaccine otherwise Herd Immunity will not happen. We can’t afford to fail this time. The U.S. just reached a horrifying milestone with 300,000 deaths. Many thought it was an exaggerated number, but here we are mourning the dead.
