After a year of watching this COVID-19 spread across the world I have come to realize that there are 3 kinds of people:
The first type of people I have seen, are the ones who care about themselves, their loved ones and people in general. These are the ones you see wearing masks, social distancing and avoiding large gatherings. Another type of people that fall into this category are the ones that wear mask, social distance and avoid large gatherings because society has asked them to do so (the good Samaritan).
The second type of people I have seen, are the ones who only care about themselves and do not care about anyone else. These are the ones you see without a mask, not social distancing or attending large gatherings. To justify their behavior they will give you a number of reasons as to why they behave like this.
The third type of people I have seen, are just plain stupid. These are the ones that do not believe there is a pandemic, refuse to look at multiple news sources and like the second type, are the ones you see without a mask, not social distancing or attending large gatherings.
I consider myself a average person with a little common sense, with that said, just the thought that there is a possibility of a pandemic spreading would make me take action to protect myself, the ones I love and people in general. Every time I leave my home I mask up, keep my distance and don’t even consider attending a large gathering. So for me, the year 2020 will go down in my books as the year I truly saw humanity. Above all, the people we put in office to represent us and to protect us, the so called media personalities who put out misleading information and the people pushing conspiracies theories are the scariest of all.
What I learned from all of this, is if a more deadly virus comes to America, we are totally screwed. We could easily loose over a quarter of the population or more. The people running this country, the so called media personalities and people pushing conspiracies theories will play a major roll in the destruction of America. My only hope for humanity is that people will learn to stop being a follower and see these people for who they really are.
Stand up and go it alone, it’s just too easy to be a follower.
