It’s Memorial Day weekend in the United States, and everyone is breaking out of the government control of their lives. (Last weekend in Canada we celebrated Victoria Day in much the same way, even though those of us in Ontario were still being told to stay at home.)
Everyone wants this shadow to pass from their existence: they want it to be banished into the dumpster of history. So, almost world-wide, people are rebelling against authority and taking their chances on surviving the pandemic without masks, now that 50% of their populations are now vaccinated. Please note that figure is fully-vaccinated in the US, one dose only in Canada.
There are going to be holdouts against being vaccinated at all. Some think it’s a hoax. Others are concerned that their DNA will be altered. And yet others couldn’t give a damn one way or the other: to them this is a money grab by BIG PHARMA (W.H.O.) and they want no part in it.
What Happened to the ‘Flu?
One of the ‘obvious’ signposts for some people is the fact that incidence of the ‘flu dropped off the radar. Has it (the ‘flu) been rolled up into the coronavirus numbers? Or might something else have happened, like, when we began masking up, washing our hands and social distancing, we prevented its spread, accidentally? That’s the silver lining, surely…
And just like the ‘flu vaccine, we will probably need an annual booster shot for COVID, in order to minimize the effects of the world-wide variants that are becoming dominant in the West.
So: we have not defeated COVID-19, but we have yanked on its tail and run away from it.
What we have seen is a light at the end of the tunnel, and now have hope back in our lives.
God bless us every one.
