Sheltering

Some guy who owns a gym put up the first page of the Constitution of the US to proclaim people’s right to go to the gym. He could hold classes outdoors and have people spaced apart, but no he wants it his way. It would have been good if he read the part of the Constitution where the government is to take care of the common good and the welfare of the people. People are also protesting that they NEED to go to the beach. It is their right.

Meanwhile we have lost more people to this virus than to the war in Vietnam. So now it’s our right to go out and spread sickness. I know it’s been a tough 9 weeks. We’ve all lived it. I believe those of us who are not obviously sick still need to be aware that we can carry a virus, show no signs and give it to others.

If this is the hardest thing you will have to do in life, you will be lucky. If you need to be outside, work in the garden, sit on the curb, but please do not be the one responsible for someone else’s sickness or death. It’s like going to a public place and waving a loaded gun. It may not go off, but if it does you are the killer. You may not know the one you gave the virus to, or the person who gave it to you. It won’t matter. This epidemic will continue because you couldn’t give it a little more time.

If you still believe you have rights over other people who’d like to stay well and live. Don’t wear a mask, don’t wash your hands, give someone the toilet paper you’ve hoarded. Go to the beach. Drink a little Lysol before you go.
