I think we need to do a do-over everyone, because this year just sucks.
I had an eldery, ex-military neighbor down the street who I was good friends with for over 15 years. I always helped him out over the years, financially, food, assistance, help around the house, etc. He had a lot of medical issues, and due to that/them was placed in Hospice care in his home last week. I had actually just picked up a large grocery order for him with my wife as we were concerned that he wasn’t eating right. Well last night he passed. May he rest in peace finally.
Have another in law in ICU who suffered a tragic cardiac arrest, and due to the Coronavirus hospital restrictions, we can’t even go in and see her.
And YES, we have the Coronavirus on top of that. Much tragedy, loss of life, loss of jobs, failing 401k’s and much, much more. WHATTA YEAR !!!
I had to mute out a few threads, as they were just turning into a name calling, bash fest, from which there was NO returning. I get that people are worried, stressed, anxious. It’s clearly going around, and more than normal given the circumstances.
I’d like to remind everyone that now, even in the face of the COVID-19, we should REALLY, all pull TOGETHER. We don’t need to blame, argue, bicker, etc. We’re all BIGGER than that. With all that my family is going through right now, my neighbor’s down the street, and I’m quite sure MANY of you as well, it should be the time to pull together as one. I don’t care if we don’t agree on everything, politics, religion, because that just doesn’t matter.
Hope you guys are having a better 2020 than we are, but I suspect many of you may be having the same delightful time we are.
Pull as one, all together ELR. Family matters.
