Just throw it to the wind

Here’s a thought. Just open everything up. People who want to stay home can. People who are sick or elderely or compromised, like I am, can stay home.

This virus is not going to go away. People are losing their jobs. So my thinking, and I’m 60, is to toss it to the wind! It seems to me that so many people don’t care anyway. We have a president who doesn’t have a clue. We have people who want to point a gun at someone because they wear a mask. What’s the point? If this country can not get it together during this crisis, we have no hope.

I am just as tired as everyone else. I am also a caregiver, along with my sister, to my 92-year-old mom. We can’t take her to the store because of selfish fools who won’t wear a mask. You all wear a seat belt right? But you can’t wear a face mask for 10 minutes? To protect me, my sister and my mom? Throw it all to the wind. DJT says it will all go away soon anyway.
