    Amazing. Short by heartfelt.

    What's devastating is the amount of headlines from the beginning, and people are either desensitized to it, or simply are "over it" and think it's been overblown. It's heartbreaking that others' deaths may not mean much to people, unless it happens to their immediate family or friends. While I think it's important to have perspective, there's a difference between keeping a steady head and refusing to take proper precautions to protect others and in that, that compassion and sense of humanity is lost.

    You penned a lot in a few words, and that period in the title, that there really are no other words, is poignant, too.

    thanks for your comments. If it helps just one person do the right thing, then it was worth posting.

    You minced no words, and went straight to the point. Heartbreaking how many people aren't taking it seriously, especially since we're almost at the point of a post-covid world.
