1 pointPeople are complaining about a bit more than sitting on a couch. People are losing their jobs and their livelihoods.
1 pointFor most people it is an inconvenience, but for others life and death. I will happily be inconvenienced to help not make someone sick. I really feel for businesses and employees financially hard hit. We will just have to ride it out.
1 pointFor those of us who are seniors and have cancer or heart disease (me and DH) or other health issues, this virus is a life and death matter. We won’t even get into the $200k we’ve lost in our retirement accounts the past two weeks. Lots of people are worrying about their small businesses failing or losing their jobs and health benefits. This is about a lot more than a paid staycation.
1 pointTo help keep all this in perspective, a friend of mine was speaking with a 90+ year old World War II Vet. He says he was sorry what everyone is going through at the moment. But it's nothing compared to what they had to go through in the 1940's during World War 2. We are being quarantined to our couches in our homes, they were being sent off to war. Not to mentioning all the rationing going on back in the day. I think what is going on now is a small taste of what our Parents, Grand Parents and now Great Grand Parents had to endure during the great war. I am not complaining so much anymore.
