We all think we’re bulletproof, we all think that if we should contract this virus then we will more than likely just get over it in a few days. To all intents and purposes that is probably accurate, we will get over it.
The thing is, this isn’t about us. This is about those around us. The people in our lives that this particular period of time could have a profound impact on.
We are being asked to take personal measures to help others. That to date, is currently where we are letting ourselves down.
No one will starve, no one will lose there homes. You should not need additional reasons to stay in your home to help your fellow man.
The irony is those acting selfishly and queuing outside supermarkets to strip the shelves bare, are the ones putting themselves most at risk.
I’m not a politician, nor am I a preacher but I have always had a set of values.
Take what you need, and leave some for the next man.
I hope common sense and a moral responsibility beds itself in soon as current actions will not only make this far worse, but also a greatly increased timeline.
Please be safe, and please be considerate.
