Presently, my Democratic Governor and Democratic Mayor are arguing about shelter in place.
Is it the right decision?
Is it the wrong decision?
How about this: it’s a decision that is both right and wrong, good and bad. There are pros and cons.
I’ll tell you one thing- I would not want to be a leader right now…
So, please stop trashing the leaders right now- no matter the party. This is not the time to play my party is better than your. There is no easy route to this. Stop playing along party lines when it comes to this crisis. It will not do any good. It will only be bad
Think you know exactly what should be done now? Well if you do, then tell me the next five winners of the Kentucky Derby. Or admit that you don’t really have a clue as to what should happen.
What if I said we should have stopped international travel on January 1? Kept people entering countries in quarantine for two weeks? How do you think that would have worked?
To say we should have done X is to Monday morning quarterback (for those of you mourning sports and ensuing coverage). There is no absolute answer for what should have been done.
This is not the time for us to be divided. This is a time for unity.
Stop blaming leaders.
Stop blaming Chinese.
Stop blaming Asians.
Stop blaming Hassidim.
Stop blaming anti vaxxers.
I live in a blue, sanctuary city. Yet I see a lot of blame and prejudice being tossed around. How do you spell hypocrite?
Right now, our mental health is just as important as our physical beings. Are you spreading hate and negativity, or are you being a positive force?
You know I don’t buy into the happy all the time philosophy. But I also don’t buy into doom and gloom…
If you can’t at least be neutral, than you can be quiet.
Before I logged off Facebook for the duration of the crisis, I watched one person literally melt down in front of me in the comments section of a post.
How is this good for anyone?
You can think whatever you want. But remember your words and actions may affect someone whose mental state is not as strong as others.
Be kind and considerate in words and actions and deeds.
And say a big Thank You to health care professionals, public servants, truckers, postal workers, cashiers, employees at companies that ship….and all those people that are literally keeping things running.
