I live in the USA. Our total deaths thus far are 34,234. Today alone we are already over 1,646. (I use https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries to get my information) They have been over 2000 a day for the last 4 days and it looks like this day will be the same.
When we hit 1900 last week i was all eyes wide and holy feckin cow dude. It floored me. Now, with 4 days of 2600 under my belt it no longer gets me anxious and in turmoil. I think there is more a resigned acceptance of whats happening to my fellow countrymen, to me, to the world. I think its a protective thing our mind does to help us deal with traumatic events. I suspect I am not the only one feeling it. I have to shake myseelf and remind myself that this is not a good time to be shielded fom the horrible reality of whats happening. Those arent just numbers , they are people, even in death they are people that matter to others.And now is not the time to be resigned to this.
Now is the time to be aware and alert and fighting the virus. We are the front line. Us moms and uncles and grocery store clerks and mechanics and gardeners and retired folks and ...all of us. Dont let the protective shield cushion the horror from you, Let the horror be what motivates you to stick to the shelter at home mandates and put on your gloves and your facemasks Fight back.
We have the unique situation where we are people from all over the world gathered here on an almost daily basis. And while it is a much-needed escape from RL, it is also an opportunity to be heard world-wide. Smiles, and we all know Daisy is gunna grab that opportunity and run with it.
Daisy shouts...FFS, FIGHT BACK!!!
