The Coronavirus Pandemonium.


Imagine.
.
Students, teachers, and parents have n.o. i.d.e.a. how to decide what to do with their children as the first day of school approaches. Fact: One Covid-19 positive person, regardless of age, can infect 100, in just days (see the church choir case). Advice and authority on the subject is as widely diverse as opinions on the severity have been among Americans since March.
.
I am only one person. But, my body absorbs this chaos nearly every minute, even when I am going about daily tasks or trying to have a relaxing evening. It isn’t the virus, or even the restrictions, which hurt me; it’s the appalling absence of coherent leadership.
.
How can School Boards decide? Do they have any more trustworthy information than the rest of us can access?
.
How can Mayors? Governors?
.
This is why a national strategy should have been formulated, distributed to every Governor, and then implemented with regular accountability by local authorities from the end of February. Instead, we were led by the emotional mentality of a fourth grader, and this is the outcome. Vote for a.n.y.b.o.d.y. else but the current incompetent on November 3. Mail it in, or show up at your poll. Do it.
.
Unimaginably, our lives are at stake.

  1. I don’t know how parents can send their kids back to school now. Several years ago a friend’s daughter, a freshman at U. of Penn., contracted bacterial meningitis at school and died before her mother could even get there. The grief was unbearable for the family and the community. The death of just one child is too high a price to pay for reopening.

    A vote for Biden/Harris is a vote for some coherent policy, not to mention TRUTH, of which the incumbent has a completely unfamiliar acquaintance.

    1. Indeed. And, the death of that one child from bacterial meningitis can never be redeemed, a fact which likely relives the grief it bears in every death of a child. Children are not born to die. School has already proved a death trap for far too many, at the hands of assault weapons; now, we expect them to march toward yet another? Thank you for reading, and for posting this heartfelt comment.

  2. Why would a national strategy suddenly make everyone able to make decisions based on sufficient information? Wouldn’t that just be letting the Federal Government control everything? That is rarely even close to a good plan. How far afield would a state or county or municipality have to go before federal enforcement stepped in? Is “strategy” the same as “law”? It might be. Be very careful with this recommendation.

  3. Its the same here in the UK Ruth Ann, our government is more concerned with the economy than the people. Definitely something wrong with the overtly capitalist countries decision making – there is no moral backbone and no trust in the system.
