I am tired of people not following CDC guidelines. How hard is it to just stay home? Non-essential businesses should be ashamed! People who refuse to listen should be ashamed! I am tired of people pointing fingers. Republicans are blaming Democrats, Democrats are blaming Republicans, and the people in between are bashing the entire government!! Now is not the time for politics. News flash people, there is more to life than just politics. We all need to set aside our differences, now is not the time to start pointing fingers and rebelling.
It it time for us to work together, it’s how we’re going to get through this, and the longer we don’t listen to the CDC, the longer this will go on. When they tell you they are trying to flatten the curve, they mean they are trying to slow the rapid progression of this virus so that hospitals can better accommodate the patients who need them. Which is why it’s so important to STAY HOME!!!!
I have a husband with a compromised immune system. Other than leaving my house for work (I’ll be teleworking soon) and the grocery store (which is minimal,) I stay home for him.
I have a father with a heart problem and a history of lymphoma. I stay home for him.
I have a cousin who is a CNA and is pulling 16 hour shifts, exposing herself on a daily basis to care for people who need her help. I stay home for her.
I have a cousin who is a truck driver, she puts herself at risk to ensure we can buy the essential items we need. I stay home for her.
Amanda has asthma, Christen has an autoimmune disorder, I myself have upper respiratory issues from multiple battles with bronchitis and sinusitis. I stay home for us.
I stay home for every first responder, doctor, nurse, CNA, anesthesiologist, surgeon, Pharmacist, Veterinarian, and lab tech. I stay home for my grandma and every other elderly person who is at risk. I stay home for every retail worker who puts themselves at risk to ensure we have access to groceries, over the counter medicine, and all of our other household essentials. I stay home for gas station employees. I stay home for every restaurant worker who prepares us food while still trying to maintain a business. I stay home for every road crew member, utility worker, and public service employee.
I stay home for anyone and everyone who is at risk of this virus, up to and including myself.
Please do the same!
Love & life lessons,
