The times we are living in right now will obviously go down in history. As to whether it is going to end up basically positive or if it will end up being one of the worst things in our history, so far as sicknesses go, can not be stated, until it is all over and things are back to some resemblance of normal. Unfortunately, even if it ends up positive it will not matter to those who lost their jobs or even worse their lives or a family member’s life.
It’s at times like these that everybody finds out just what people are made of. Will they be there to do things to help out, will they become hermits, or will they just act like nothing is wrong and just continue doing the same things we do every day, or will they be real crazy and test out what ever they are told not to do and do it anyway.
Here I am wondering about the other guy, because the other guy could pass the disease on to me if he’s not doing what he’s been told to do. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt what I’m going to do, exactly what the President of the United States told us to do, stay in until the danger has passed, and if I must go out, use a mask that has been approved and gloves so that I wont become contaminated by other people that are not following the guidelines that have been set out for us to do.
There is no way to understand why some people will not follow instructions and guidelines set by the President. Most businesses are not supposed to be open at all, and the ones that will be allowed to be open have certain guidelines to follow. There are even some states that are not closing their borders like they were told to do.
there is no telling what it will take for these law defying Americans to wake up the the super intense danger that COVID-19 poses. It is like cancer in that it is no respecter of race, national origin, age, education or anything. But the main difference is that this kills a person so much faster than most cancers do. I know that there are some people that have died in a very short time once they were diagnosed, but most of the cancer patients do get to see their family and usually can say their goodbyes. On the other hand this COVID-19 is so bad that the people that have it are not allowed any visitors and nobody in the family can even say their goodbyes. Why?, you might ask. Because the patients with COVID-19 are put on ventilators and are usually only in a semi conscious state. Not being able to tell a loved one goodbye on their deathbed is very traumatic for most people. I know that there have been many family members that I could not say goodbye to. I am the only one in my family that lives in the state where I live, and further more, I don’t have a car. There have been many nights that I have cried myself to sleep on account of not being able to tell my loved ones goodbye.
This disease is so wicked that even new born babies from just a few days old(I think I read about one that was only 3 days old) to a few weeks or a few months old have been stricken by it and passed away without even being with their parents, and the parents did not get to even hold the baby and hug it and say goodbye in some cases.
You would think that teenagers would be mature enough to stay inside until the quarantine is over. But there are actually some rebellious teens that think they are invincible and are going out and doing such things as licking door handles and even licking public toilets. How stupid can they get? I don’t really want to know. and then there are those that will not stay in their own state and insist on crossing the borders. They don’t care if it’s against the law right now. Unfortunately one of the teenage boys that licked a public toilet died a few days later, if what I heard and read was true. Can you imagine how his parents feel. He’s gone just because he challenged authority.
From what I have been reading and hearing, we haven’t even scratched the surface as to how bad it may get if the scientists and doctors don’t find an anecdote or antibody, pretty soon, that will kill it. the worst part is how many of the heroes are getting it and dying because they are trying to treat and cure the ones that are sick. They are getting burned out from exhaustion and watching so many of the patients pass away. I wish that the police could arrest all of the ones that are going up and coughing and spitting in other peoples faces, like the elderly couple a few days ago. And if that wasn’t bad enough they are beating innocent people up for no reason. This is all so depressing.
Unfortunately, since I am one of the elderly with numerous medical problems I could very easily catch it and die. But at least I know that if I do, it’s not because I didn’t pay attention to the quarantine, because I am paying attention to it as close to the letter as I can.
With all that’s going on with the rebellious teenagers and not being able to purchase the protective masks and gloves, because there are virtually none to be found anyplace. I do clean my hands many many times a day though. I will do it as long as the hand sanitizer lasts anyway.
If you are one of the ones that is going against everything that is being done to try to help you to not get sick, please turn yourself around and start doing what you are supposed to do. There are enough people dying worldwide that there don’t need to be ones that are dying because of their own stupidity.
I’m going to end this with a prayer. Dearest Heavenly Father, I am asking You to put out Your loving arms and comfort those of us that just can’t seem to have any peace about doing the right thing even. I can’t believe the young people that are going so wild. Just please be with us though all of this. Every time I cough, I get scared even though I know that I have been doing the things I should be doing not to get the COVID-19. These are just really scary times. My biggest prayer is that this will bring more people closer to You and Your everlasting love. Please be with my Goddaughter, as she is on the front lines in Norfolk Virginia. Be with our leaders and our heroes that are working so hard to keep as many of us safe as is possible. And if it is possible, please bring those rebellious young people to their senses. Thank You for all that you do for us each and every day. For without you we could not even breathe. Thank You for sending Your only Son to die for us and pay for our sins on the cross. Help me to be the kind of person that just to look at me people will know that I am one of Your children, and nothing can pluck me out of Your loving Hands. In Jesus Holy name I pray for a hedge of protection around my family and friends. AMEN!!!!!
