Do You Value Money over Lives?
By James W. Wade III I am one those who believe the Coronavirus is nothing to play with, me being a person who is at risk to catch it, has not stepped out the house in 2 months for no reason. I just read an article from CNBC that talked about the day states reopen it was the deadliest day, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). The U.S. saw 2,909 people die of Covid-19 in 24 hours, according to the data, which was collected as of 4 a.m. ET on Friday. Before May 1, they shared that the only other highest was on April 23, with 2,471. Most don’t care about these numbers until it hits close to home for you. Each day while I watch so many protesters demand the government reopen the country for economic reasons, I shake my head at them not being concern about human life or only money. Money hungry people are the worst people to deal with, in my opinion, because nothing else matters but that almighty dollar bill. I am thankful to live in Ohio and not New York who has 24,039 deaths of the country’s 65,173 from Covid 19. This deadly disease emerged from China in December 2019. Some of the symptoms include cough, fever, shortness of breath, muscle aches, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, diarrhea, and headaches. I guess if I had to be labeled as a worried person, call me what you like. Life is too short already without having to worry about this virus. Staying in the house, gaining weight from eating everything in sight is better than being handled by a funeral home or lying in a hospital clinging on for dear life. I am always happy to see someone who was able to walk out of the hospital from Covid 19 and reunite with their families. The sad part about all this when you lose a family member, you can’t even have a proper send-off, due to the restrictions and lockdown from the virus. Many family members can’t see their elderly parent’s in Nursing Homes or Rehabilitation Centers. I am asking all my friends to please be careful if you are going out or you are an Essential Worker, take precautions against this deadly virus. We still have a lot of hurdles to jump coming into the summer. A lot of summer events are canceled already. You have seen in Florida all those people running to the beach and how the number of new cases jumped up. I hate not being able to see Tri C Jazz Fest, but I would rather know my friends are still alive and hear jazz on my computer. I am thankful to be alive, in December 2019 and January 2020, I had two different situations where the doctor said I could have died. I was prepared to go hang out with the Foxhall’s at their New Year’s Eve event but was too sick to even move out of the bed. I am glad to see another day and give thanks when I can open my eyes each morning. I lay there and pray, and thank God before I moved from the bed. So while I end my daily blog, know my house will still be on lockdown, and you have a right to talk about me all you like, but until you have to deal with near-death experiences, I am sure you will think about life differently. During Covid 19 I have posted many times how glad I was to see some people treating people better, I know there are still a few egotistical human beings thinking they all that, but I don’t worry about them. To all who have felt any ill will towards me, I am so sorry please accept my apology, I know if I have wronged you now I feel so guilty for making you feel the way you do. I am sincerely sorry. Have a great day, everyone.
