I’m trying not to be angry but I’ve reached a point in this stupid virus where I am more mad at the lock down than anything. We have almost 1100 deaths in Florida; this, to me, does not warrant crisis lock-down mode. Think about how many people go into say, Magic Kingdom in a day. I looked it up and it’s 60,000. Their MAX capacity is 100,000. So think about 1100 people dying. People die from various things ALL THE TIME; why are we cowering in fear because the government told us to? Does this not strike anyone else as absurd? After watching this video
Want to know what means the most to me? Immunity being built up by exposure. I remember when my children all started kindergarten and they had classmates who got sick all the time. Turns out, those kids didn’t go to pre-school; they never got exposed to the cesspool of germs that is a gathering of small children. But hence, my kids got to school and were very healthy. So to that end, the docs in that video reminded me of what I already knew of myself: I am around college-aged kids ALL THE TIME and in CLOSE QUARTERS. I rarely get sick. The last time I had the flu was when I was pregnant with my now almost 7 year old AND we had traveled (driven even) to Chicago at Christmas time. So think about that! So today, I just feel mad that MY right to choose to go out has been hindered. And yes, I know that it also puts other people in danger but that is the nature of our world ALL THE TIME. You leave your home and get behind the wheel of a car. You could potentially be a danger to all others. Every other car is a danger to you. You go to a concert with other people, there are going to be sick folks. You are all at that risk. And based on the numbers, I don’t see how this is any different. Highly contagious? Yes. But so are a lot of things and we don’t panic about them, do we? No, we panic because the news told us to. (Never forget: pandemic is just DEM surrounded by PANIC. Lol; sorry, couldn’t resist.)
WELL, now that you’ve all stopped reading my blog, let’s share the music. The theme is: Angels in song titles or lyrics. This is the first song that came to mind and I think it came out because of Melrose Place? Remember that 90210 spin off? Yeah, it’s vague for me too.
