1 in every 500 Americans has died of COVID-19. What I am about to say will probably not apply to most of people who followed this blog, but I have to say it.
I feel like I’m about to explode from anger, or stress, or frustration… or all of them at the same time.
For most of us, those numbers means at least one person we graduated from high school with has died.
For those that say it’s not that serious, that it’s fear mongering, how do you live with yourself?
At first, I didn’t understand why someone would say if you refuse to get vaccinated you shouldn’t go to the hospital if you get sick. Because, if your sick and you need medical attention, you should be able to get it. Right? Well, sounds like there’s no room for you in a lot of hospitals.
I’m a logical, rational woman and I usually have too much empathy for those in need.
But right now, I could care less if you are turned away or refused treatment.
You chose not to have a vaccine that could have PREVENTED your illness, too bad, so sad.
Reserve that space someone who actually took steps to ease the burden on an already taxed system, not you “Freedom fighter”.
I hate that I feel this way.
I hate that you have made me feel this way.
Get it together.
Stop protesting in the streets because someone wants to keep your kid safe when you chose not too.
Grow the fuck up.
Why don’t you understand that you ARE part of the problem? That your actions are affecting every single one of us?
We can’t row in opposite directions and expect to reach our destination.
Play politics later.
People are dying.
A lot of people.
Do your part.
Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
