Hey everyone, Tangney hope it's ok that I join in...
Golden eluded to this Thread on another one.
I had a read & don't fit in I think but that's the norm for me I guess.
Not sure if it's even helpful for me to share anything, certainly not what I REALLY think. I'll share some, not all...
Firstly I don't envy the Govt's jobs at Federal, State or even locally. Our local govt is shot to pieces anyway (our rates have almost doubled bec of their incompetence - great during a pandemic & ruined businesses hey?)
I'd hate to make these decisions at any Govt level.
We have been in lock down since July.
My kids are happier learning from home, there are issues with all of it tho.
An email from my boss was sent late last night. I woke at 2am & read it, gave me FAR too much food for thought. Basically prepare for this "phase" to last 2 more months to the whole year. The whole year.....
I have main concerns for the general public.
One being thinking that the vaxes are a silver bullet.
Obviously they're not.
People are HAPPY thinking they're "free" to go and do whatever because they are vaxed. Clearly vaxed ppl are still able to contract the virus, still able to pass it on...
Basically the lines for testing SHOULD be twice as long.
Those who are vaxed need to be tested regularly too. I feel for the vaxed nurses who "did the right thing", after unknowingly contracting the virus, passed it on to patients in hospitals causing death. Horrible. Those sweet nurses.
I haven't watched the news since about March last year. C-PTSD was out of the universe so I stopped.
I HEAR it tho... just what's passed on. Rhetoric. Vilification. Hatred. Ppl doing exactly what the govt wants > hating each OTHER and not them. An Age old strategy! And "we" fall for it again!
I see 3 sectors are majorly effected causing death, some overlapping. 1 those who do pass away from the virus. 2 those who suicide from being at the end of their MH tether - rates rising SO high it's unbelievable. 3 those who've died from the vax - my own family member.
Now the 4th - at the edge. I'm working at this edge. It's very scary. Families who are starving, becoming homeless, being cold :-( , parents unable to get help. Crying to me. God I wish I could help them all.
My family is supporting ONE family financially, 7 if you count all families.
Thousands emotionally, referring them to nowhere else but our Church for food.
THIS makes me very angry.
I have no answers. None.
