In my last blog, I stated I was more afraid of the future, than I am of the virus. And I still feel that way. I’ve only known of three people who have contracted COVID-19 (in California, Florida & Massachusetts). Two were in & out of the ICU, and all three have survived. Anywhere from 96-98% of people are surviving this virus, yet we are destroying our economy in the meantime. It’s horrible. It really is.
My fear is not for the virus, but for the loss of our constitutional rights and our freedom. My fear is for child abuse and domestic abuse that has increased. Our country will never be the same. If anything, this has taught me how much people are followers and not leaders, not questioning anything. And it has really taught me how much the media controls things. The stories that are not making the headlines are the increase in abuse since children and spouses are home more. The amount of people surviving this is not making the headlines. We aren’t hearing much about the people who are doing just fine after their diagnosis. And we certainly are not hearing the importance of proper nutrition & exercise or the stories about strengthening your immune system. Nope, that’s not making headlines. Yet it should. I’ve written about that in the past and will continue to do so, as that may be our best hope. Strengthen your immune system…but no one makes money off of that.
The media knows how to write headlines to get people to click on articles and read them. Just last week the headline said “180 people exposed at a church service”. If you only read the headline, you could be thinking 180 contracted CV, and possibly 180 people died. But no, that doesn’t happen, they write the headline to make people take notice and encourage the worst of things. And just tonight the TV said all states were opening up, “despite 17 states that have an increase in numbers.” Hmmm…why aren’t they saying 33 states have either a decrease in numbers or stay the same? Is it because they want to frame this as worse than it is? Or they just want to focus on the negative, as that’s what people want to hear?
Depending on what website you go to, you’ll see different headlines on the same articles, because of the slant of the website. Is it because politics are involved? Is this a democrat vs. republican thing, and about a presidential election? Or is it about 5G technology & Wuhan, China being the first city to implement it? Is it about a manufactured virus or a person eating a bat? Or is it about Bill Gates and his goal of population control? Is it about micro chipping our bodies, just like we microchip our dogs? Is it about forced vaccination? Could it possibly be about all these things? Or none of them? Why isn’t the mainstream media talking about this controversy? Can you google these things, or are they being hidden and not found on the first several pages of website searches? Or are they being removed from search engines?
All of this is pretty scary, and that what concerns me. America needs to open up, get people back outside. Everyone needs to question things, yet most people don’t, and that’s scary.
They told us to stay inside for 2 weeks so we did. And then two more weeks. And two more weeks. And people did. They told people to wear masks. And they did. They told us to stay 6-feet away. Few people have questioned things. So when our economy & country is different in six months to a year, we have no one to blame but ourselves. And that is sad. And scary. Our loss of our rights and our loss of freedom is what I’m afraid of. And that seems to be happening. C’mon people, fight for your freedom and rights, otherwise we may never get them back.
