TWL: thankful for vaccines

With Thanksgiving a week away we have to watch COVID-19 case numbers carefully, note the current upward trend, and be ready. Cases are going back up again with more than a 15% increase this week compared to last week. College kids will soon travel home to every state where they will deliver (or pick up) the virus and help it spread when they return to campus. We are entering a dangerous month. If we’re lucky and smart, we can minimize the spread. If we have an open holiday where we are all just sick of worrying, we’ll probably pay again with a winter surge like last year.

I’ve been told I’m wrong, but to me wearing a mask with your family is not offensive; it means you love them and if they put one on too, it means they love you back. Be offended by something else. Oh, and get a negative COVID test before hugging your grandma.

I’m so thankful for the coronavirus vaccines I might even get a flu shot.

628,000 new cases of COVID-19 in America this week. We’ve been at this for a long time and still the end is nowhere in sight.


What do you think of that?
