Sorry for the long read. I’m gonna put some thoughts out there, appreciated or not. I’ve remained fairly quiet about all of this simply because my view is skewed based on my job and time hasn’t allowed it. I’ve had a few days, read through several different articles and postings. These are my thoughts: Is the virus real? Yes. Is the virus deadly? Yes, compromised immune systems, and the elderly seem to most at risk. I see several posts that say, “the elderly don’t mind dying to save the economy(I find this repulsive).” “Let the healthy, young work, we need paychecks, the rest of you can stay home so we can keep the economy going” okay but, many elderly still need to work, many compromised still need to work, both are in need of paychecks but that would require most to wear masks which many refuse to do, so what do you do? Let them lose everything? Let them go without food? Aren’t these the very things you don’t want to go without? why should they. You say things such as “don’t infringe on my rights” while you infringe on the rights of others. Have certain state officials over stepped? Yes. Have states over planned? Yes. If they under planned wouldn’t that mean they’re trying to kill us all? So they over plan and it’s a hoax? You see healthcare staff dancing, that means it’s fake? If you had any idea what this has done to some healthcare staff you may understand better. Post criticizing healthcare staff has lead to the public lashing out(in some areas), claiming that healthcare workers are fake and being paid by “soros” to take care of covid19 patients that are actors and actresses. There was an incident in my local Walmart that lead to the cops being called to safely escort 2 healthcare workers out and walked to their cars. This is okay? Must be it’s all an act anyways. There are some receiving unemployment +600 and are making more on unemployment than working, some are making more than those still employed. Some unemployed have refused payments from their place of work because unemployment pays more per week. Some are making less and truly struggling but all the right sees is one side and all the left sees is one side, there’s two realities here. Some are taking advantage of the system while others are truly struggling to make ends meet. There are employees trying to get fired because they know they’ll make more on unemployment. We are so completely polarized that it’s either all or nothing. It’s either a real virus or it’s fake. The ironic thing is most claiming this is fake know someone who passed from it. So let’s end with this, I see posts that say “every death is because of covid19, even a car accident is because of the virus.” If someone catches the virus and passed as a result, they have simply died from it. If someone has an underline condition and has the virus and pass from it, yes it’s because of the virus, the patient would be alive otherwise. Is their dirty politics involved, yes but we as a people can do better for one another. Not once have I ever said “stay home, wear a mask” and so on. Do as you will but be cautious for the elderly persons that still need a paycheck to put food on the table and please don’t expect them to be the worldly sacrifice for a system that doesn’t give a shit about them or you. You think an elderly politician would be sacrificed for the system, no. Be cautious of the compromised because they also need to put food on the table and probably have more medical expenses then you or I do. You can’t demand your rights be all that matters when that means others have to sacrifice there rights for yours. You can’t say don’t tread on me if your treading on someone elses. Why am I saying this, because after my last post I received an inbox alluding to the fact that I was a fake healthcare worker being paid by George soros. I am not a fake healthcare worker being paid by soros. Let me state this for the record, I do want people back to work, the elderly and compromised included. I would hate to small businesses close up leaving us with corporations.
Sorry for my lack of posts. I’ve been working a covid19 unit and have been pretty busy. I’m grateful for my crew. I will say this about covid19, this is a very real virus. When I have time I watch both the left and right use this virus for themselves, both sides are trying so hard to disprove the other, trying to make a name for themselves by being the first to point out a falsehood. Both sides are doing exactly what they accuse the other side of. Please remember there are people recovering, there are those who require more intensive care and there those who will have this virus self resolve itself. I will be writing periodically as my hours will be much longer this week. I wish you all the best stay rational, and stay well! Much love and respect to all of you!
One thing I’ve learned about fear; Fear creates a response/reaction similar to its own seed. Fear will cause Flight. Paralysis = non reaction or denial to an extreme. Fight. You can look back months from now and realize you’ve reacted solely out fear without rational thought and now your regretful for behaviors, judgments, not conversing with someone, leaving someone alone to long, failing to take steps that put you in the direction of you want. I could go on but you get the point. Fear now in this moment can cause you to feel your life is worth more than another’s life but what makes a life more valuable are any of really that much more important than the other. The hand apart from the arm can’t function. The housekeeper scrubbing tirelessly to keep disinfect a hospital, the check clerks and the grocery store ringing you out, the ppl who stock the shelves. Point is fear can lead us to places of superiority but none of us can survive without the other(not well anyways). The CEO of a hospital, board members who place themselves in comfortable positions, very few will take the floors and care for those affected. These upper tiers of management wouldn’t have much If those on the frontlines weren’t their to care for others well, despite age, color, nationality, gender, beliefs or deeds. No matter how contagious someone is the ones on the top tiers will not be taking care of you, filling your baskets, sticking your shelves, delivering your food or disinfecting your walls. The most this top tier will do is demand more output from their staff, more multitasking, working harder without bonuses, without pats on the back, without raises, without thank you’s. In ending don’t let fear cause you to mistreat someone. Treat those around you the way you’d like to be treated. What would you want someone to do for you? Walk through your day rationally, kindly, patiently and try to understand the cashier checking you out has probably been standing at that cash register for hours, tired and just has afraid as you. The nurse, the doctor, the nurses aide is probably exhausted and is nervous about new admissions coming in, and will be pulling long hours, take a moment to just understand. Take a moment today to breathe and reflect.
In war the devils/enemies are easier to see, to distinguish. These devils show themselves when when lust has emptied its bowels and the tongue is parched.
In peace the devils dress as gods, enemies as friends, lust hides itself in good deeds and the tongue is quenched by words.
The words of war and peace are the same, “for the greater good, greater protection of humanity.” One carries a gun the other a peace sign, both require a contract, a conformity for the greater good or be put outside the city gates.
*the word war is not only that abroad, war is also found on ground you stand. War of thoughts, words and deeds, whose is more dominant, more just and serves the greater good. Those who fail to serve will placed outside the gates.”
What president has been pure and beyond corruptible acts.
Has one not abused power nor acted as though he is above the law.
Has one not given nor received gifts.
Have all been brought to trial for the protection of the people due to corrupt behaviors and endeavors.
has one not acted as king.
Has one fought against the dark systems..
There are none,
all have been silent and their silence has been so self can receive power and gains.
All are filthy,
corruption, abuse of power and obstruction of justices have been done by all but has now become a grave concern.
abuse of power
have now become a self defined thing to be sold for power and gains.
All are dirty
All are moral hypocrites running a circus at the expense of the people.
These politicians who claim to care about and fight for the people will still live above every policy they support or create. Not one of their supported policies will ever put them in a homeless shelter, standing in a line at the food pantry, unable to afford medications, or having to relocate due to high taxes and rising rents,
