I'm A Little Shook Right Now

Tuesday, March 31, 2020

No image today. I don't really have the energy or time for it. Not because of health, exercise, or anything like that. In fact my day started out pretty awesome.

I was only a couple of minutes away from my walk/run, when my morning alarm went off. I never use the alarm, it's only a reminder of sorts. So I was doing great. I even shaved the time it took me to complete my route to 34 minutes. My goal is under 30. I started at 39. So yes, I was feeling pretty good.

Then I looked at the community feed. And there was a post that said 'the stay at home order is stupid". That didn't set well with me. I've lost four friends now. People I've known for at least 15 years each. One of them since the 4th grade.

It just bothered me that someone would post that. And I replied to their post "You're wrong is so many ways.". So now there's responses that 'you have a right to feel that way'. And that doesn't sit well either.

Why? Because it's as I said yesterday. What you do inspires people. And irresponsible posting like that is NOT OK with me. It could be the thing that 'inspires' someone to go out in the street and play basketball. Or have a neighborhood block party. Any number of things could be 'inspired' by that one statement.

In three weeks we will be at 200K deaths in the USA. And that's if we do everything right. If we don't, that number will be significantly higher. And just so you know, I've been watching this since January. I posted about it a few times, and was called all sorts of names, so I quit posting about it.

And I'm all about freedom of choice. will defend the right to 'think' that. But I have issues when it comes to things that kill people.

I have to go... this is difficult for me.
Ya'll have a blessed day.

Peace, Love and Understanding.
I'll cy'all down the road.

    We stand close to 1.6 millions infected in the USA and reaching 97,000 lives lost. I don't know anyone that had this evil virus and my prayers are with you for those close to you that have passed. Thanks for supporting my on my journey. Rebecca

    Yes, we have difficult times. Here in Belgium, we only go out to the shops and do exercise.

    Oh Stan! I am so sorry for the loss of your friends! You have every right to be angry that folks aren't heeding the order. It makes me mad too! Good job on striving toward your 30 goal... you got this!

    Stan,

    Some people just don't want to understand and want to carry on with their frivolous lifestyle no matter if it hurts or even kills someone. I understand too that you're upset and you're being attacked for no reason, in my opinion, but just continuing looking through the blood which is how God looks at us. I am having a hard time with this as well as several of my friends have let me know that the virus got hold of them.

    Look through the BLOOD and plead the BLOOD!!!

    Blessings!

    Just about everyone I know is taking this VERY seriously and I am glad. But we know a few that actually invited us over for coffee - to hang out! They got a polite but firm NO. All I can think of is how many other people they have over and how astronomical all those potential germs could be. I read yesterday about some crazy preacher who told people he had cured Zika virus and it was safe to pack in his church because he was curing corona virus. And the people came - hundreds????
