Having been in Home Depot and Big Y it looks like people are adapting to distancing, hand washing, masks etc. Seeing people I know I don’t get close and it seems to be OK. We need testing of course but that seems to be coming on line and I am ready to live again. Incredible news on CNBC from various pharmaceutical companies which is too complicated for cable or network news. Great news on bed utilization and ventilators and I just heard that for some reason the Southern USA “hot spots” are not as “hot” as they were projected to be. Now we need to patronize the businesses we value to make sure they get back on track and we can’t afford to be cheapskates
After having seen JFK assassination, then Vietnam War, Martin Luther King, Robert Kennedy, Moon Landing, Watergate, end of Cold War, Oklahoma City, 9/11 and countless other tragedies I am speechless over this situation. There is a need for hard mental work and reflection, sacrifice including financial, prayer, and self education. I don’t think I will smile for quite a while.
Something that annoys me is that as an early riser, I watched in December on CNBC every morning Eunice Yoon from Wuhan with a mask on reporting and people joking about the stylish nature of her mask or some article of clothing. Nobody even thought it would be a health issue that would affect the world. Somebody dropped the ball in the media, the government or somewhere. Honestly every morning they would report on how it was affecting the supply of iPhone components or some manufacturer in Wuhan.
Jettie Tisdale school in Bridgeport..so far so good
It used to be so enormous; everything closed, parades for miles, family picnics with everyone living so close. World War 2 veterans ruled the world, World War 1 veterans were viable old men, Vietnam War was ongoing, no one really got the Korean War. Now largely another day; a glorified Sunday. Nothing closed, parades tiny, an occasional World War 2 veteran (minimum age now 92) in a convertible waving to the crowd, most Mid East veterans live in south and still on active duty, aging Vietnam vets (who used to be so young) marching as brothers, a few Korean War vets (minimum age now 86) on a reviewing stand (most Korean vets fought in WW2). Times are changing. RIP to all and thanks for your service.
