That phrase, ‘We’re All In This Together,’ I don't believe is entirely correct. Yes, the whole world is sick and suffering, that's a fact. But ~ My son is an ER doctor in Reading Hospital, PA, he is on the front lines. He is my Hero! Nurses, doctors, EMT’s, First Responders ~ they are on the front lines. All Hero’s! Cashiers at the grocery stores, Target, Walmart, Lowes, Home Depot, truckers…etc…essential employees are on the front lines. They may be reluctant Hero's! They deserve all of our respect and gratitude!
How are you coping during this pandemic? I’m not an essential employee. I’m home, and go to the market once a week. I am totally into social distancing. There are a lot of protests to reopen in many states. I believe America is divided on that topic. If you have ever researched the Spanish Flu that hit the world in 1918, I just hope that history does not repeat itself with a second wave. That was tragic!
People need to get back to work, to be paid. The economy needs to flourish, again. We do have to get back in the game…but…slowly. I could be wrong, what are your opinions?
I have caught up on all my shows that I’d DVR’d. And we’ve been searching for new series and shows on Netflix, Amazon Prime, You Tube. Please comment below with some awesome suggestions!
Have you been reading during this time? I’ve read Chain of Gold by Cassandra Clare. I’m rereading a fave, Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo. And I’m also reading Sometimes I Lie by Alice Feeney. Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger. What are you reading?
My prayers are with all of you and your families during this pandemic.
Stay Safe. Stay Healthy.
My thanks go out to all the essential workers. To the overworked and frequently underpaid essential workers.ReplyDelete
I would rather be safe than sorry, and the rush to reopen worries me. I don't believe that your country or mine has tested nearly enough people to be sure that it is safe.
I am reading (and loving) The Dictionary of Lost Words by Pip Williams.
I tend to agree. Thank you! And I'll have to check out that book!Delete
I'm in awe of the essential workers and their brave dedication. I hope the world does not forget they are what got us through this. We're being very good about staying under lockdown too. It's tough on my son being an only child and he's been depressed a lot. Yet we're staying safe. Our state did a soft reopen this week, and I think it's too early. The number of cases has not been declining. I fear what states reopening too soon will bring.ReplyDelete
Surprisingly, I haven't been watching hardly anything at all. I'm going through my backlog on my Kindle, and I'm playing a lot of Animal Crossing! :D
I'm fearful too!Delete
I am so thankful for those essential workers. They truly are heroes. I'm grateful for those who will shop for us, so all we have to do is pick up or open our doors. I'm sure glad I don't have to decide between keeping people safe and the economy. Our governor has put the welfare of people ahead of the economy (which she's slowly opening up) and she catches hell of her decisions. I, too, fear for what will happen if we reopen too soon.ReplyDelete
I discovered Lucifer on Netflix. I find the irreverence funny at times. Some people might be offended. We binge on Forged in Fire and NCIS (the early days). Stay safe.
I like Lucifer too!Delete
I salute and admire the efforts of medical workers and volunteers. Without their helping hand, many lives could not be helped in the midst of this epidemic.ReplyDelete
Greetings from me in Indonesia
Greetings!!! Stay safe.Delete
I am reading this after New York has thankfully flattened the curve. But any large parties or travelers from hot spots who don't follow the protocol could send the numbers skyrocketing again. The 7 pm clapping and clattering of the pans for the first responders has been very heartening.ReplyDelete
