Don’t people get it?

So here it is, weeks after the election and DJT still hasn’t conceded. And he has also said he might not attend the swearing-in of Joe Biden. 126 Republican lawmakers, including our own CMR, signed on to a lawsuit brought by Texas. I am 60 years old and this is the dumbest and most disgusting thing I have seen from a president and other elected officials. Now there are riots in DC and over in Olympia. Come on people! Get a grip. Biden won. Trump lost. Democracy at work.

This country is definitely at a crossroads. We have the COVID vaccine on its way but we still have to be careful. Masks, social distancing. I notice some people don’t care and yet 300,000 people in this country have died so far. It makes me cry, the loss of death and what families are going through?

I don’t understand why people are so selfish. I’ve been wearing a mask since March. Only to go out grocery shopping. I see these groups of people in Idaho and other places where people wear no masks. Don’t people get it? We, the people, have the power to change this! Follow protocols, quit being jerks and we’ll get through this. Do it for all the 92-year-old moms out there. Mine included.
