#HailingOurHeroes: Thank You, Essential Workers!

Thank you to the world’s greatest generation

It’s OK. Well Mostly

Hey All,

Just a little bit of a rant.

We should be provided the best way to vote safely, whether through the mail, online or in person. Safety and Access should be our first concerns.

We must be able to protest. I like the idea of protesting in our vehicles. Protesting like voting is essential.

We need to appreciate and support those heroes who are forced to work. Many people are at work because they will lose their jobs if they stay at home. They are sacrificing their health and their family’s health. There must be a better way to keep essential services open without causing undo stress and or risk.

To me it is a mistake to limit shopping. You can buy food but you cannot buy home maintenance supplies. If you want to keep the economy going don’t restrict what can be purchased. If you are cautious and brave enough to go to the “big” stores then there should be no restrictions on what can be purchased. If there are people willing to work (whatever their motivation), deliver and stock shelves we must keep them working so the rest of us can stay home.

I am not a doctor so don’t listen to my advice. As long as you stay away from others you should be able to drive or attend drive through/parking lot services in your car. I’m not a churchie but I don’t think it’s that risky if everyone stays way-away from each other.

If some want to force the country to open let’s have them go and work in some of these high risk jobs. You can’t continue to hide behind a podium or phone screen.  Go out and do what you are demanding others to do. You can be the proud martyr for the economy. I’d, first, like to be confident that I won’t die if I shake your hand.

Here is a link to a recent Noam Chomsky interview. ***Caution this may cause stress.*** I have always appreciated Dr Chomsky’s insight and thoughtfulness.

To all of our politcians and pundits listen to those who you disagree with. They may have a good idea.

To the Trolls out there. if you want to be heard you have to hear others. Don’t just bitch be constructive. Participate in discussions. (NO I don’t need more porn links, but thanks anyway.)

We are all trying to make the world a better place.

I hope you’ll comment.

That’s my rant. Thanks for reading. Be safe.

Thanks, You!

A little post to express my thanks to the world.

Everyone,

Thank you for being considerate to your fellow citizens and keeping a distance,

thank you for being kind to your neighbors and strangers.

Not only should we give others physical room we also need to give emotional room.

Lots of stress and disinformation.

The trolls find this time their greatest hope to keep the world divided. Most trolls are trapped in their dark locations and logically they have more time to attack. They will continue to be alone and live in fear. They are missing the wonders of life. Trolls please join us to make the world a better place. The payoff is much greater.

Humans we suffer.

Humans we succeed.

I’m well aware of the digital divide and economic levels. Our household is lower middle class, if there is such a thing, we have a week’s worth of money in the bank. In some countries we’re considered well off. We have a house with a mortgage and both of us work. My wife is “essential” at this time and it’s scary as hell. I have lots of vacation time, most people don’t. I am using it since I am not considered essential and haven’t worked for 3 weeks. My heart goes out to those who do not have this luxury.

I am grateful for so much and to so many people. The list is long. Please forgive me if your profession is not on the list.

Healthcare workers,

Delivery workers,

Food industry workers,

Those who keep the internet servers up and running,

Sanitation workers,

Maintenence workers,

Safety professionals,

Public service workers,

Neighbors,

Friends,

Family,

Those who are never heard from taking risks, keeping things running, helping others,

So many others.

Also Thank you Planet Earth for taking this opportunity to recover.

I know I’m abusive to you but I love you.

Does that help?

Once again the web has changed everything. Having the wealth of information, seeing others survive, seeing the horror, knowing we are not alone is truly a blessing of science and of those who worked and work so hard to make it possible.

We continue to grow as a species.

We strive.

We will be better.

Be safe. Be well.
