We are coming from different places, it seems.
Trump’s comment was 100% stupid, spur of the moment, asinine brain-fart. And I’d be willing to bet you could count on one hand the number of people who actually entertained the thought that it was a good idea, vs. the thousands of Americans who will likely still wear paper on their faces til next May bc of Fauci.
My heart breaks when I hear of people who have put their lives on hold for a year+ now. We have been hanging out with friends and family, un-masked, indoors and outdoors since Easter of last year. We have our parties and picnics and holidays and sleepovers and we’ve shopped and dined and continued to live. This is especially valuable as we plan to move this summer and are grateful for these memories. We’ve missed the museums and activities that have normally graced our lives, but we made up for it with more gatherings and play dates and fellowship. What is saddest is that people who have had vaccines are still not confident! What will it take for people to reclaim their lives?
