Just too late

It’s quite obvious but I think people are refusing to look. Perhaps they don’t listen to their minds or pretend their blind and don’t see. In general, they may claim: ‘well, it don’t affect me’ These risks are by them seen calculated and measured. The economy must run even though that may cause the innocent to be endangered. Covid’s still out there and it’s still running free. It does not care about you, our loved ones or me. To think that the new normal is here, we survived, we’re home free! Indeed that may be the gravest mistake we’ll ever make and it maybe too late, just too late for us to see.

My daughter is an epidemiologist. She warned me this would be an especially bad week after Memorial Day. The largest outbreaks will happen about five weeks after large gatherings. I am glad that you have penned this. Maybe you will help save lives.
