Chef Woo Can's Opinion
I love my country, the United States Of America and damn proud of being the greatest country in the world. We're not perfect but we do our best and always try to learn from our past.
We're a compassionate country, helping those in need in our country as well as internationally. There's something that can be said about us. We always have a way to help others even when we are in need of help, we always have that drive to do the right thing.
We are a proud people united as one no matter what the cause is, we are willing to fight to preserve what past generations sacrificed themselves for. When our country ask us to serve, we do so with honor.
Things may never always be black and white and there are some that don't agee but that is their right as the right that we believe in certain causes. That's the beauty of our country, the ability to get along even with different opinions. Some are etreme, some are expressed mildly and some get a bit violent.
Lately, our country has ben infected with an invisible deadly, highly contagious virus called Covid-19. Plainly speaking, it has crippled us economically and has killed so many of us. Our leaders are doing the best they can. Everyone has been "Sheltered In Place", furloughed, unemployed. What can we do.
Our leaders are trying to balance opening their states up, health officials are saying it premature to open up, social distancing guidelines are not being followed. Deaths have spiked, our loved ones are dying.
I know I'm saying alot but in a nutshell, cool heads have to prevail. If each one of us use common sense where a facemask. Stay 6 ft away from reach other and don't congregate with 10 or more. If we do that the curve will level off and move downward. Then, as states get testing done and tracking is in place, corporations can begin a slow gradual return to business.
We all have rights that our country has given to us and yes there are those that don't like government interference but in times of uncertainty, as this one is we have to stay vigilant and listen. Just think of this. YOU may be a carrier of Covid-19 without showing any symptoms. It's not the other person, it may be you. There will be plenty of time to second guess our leaders and healthcare officials later. Right now follow the basic guidelines and if everyone follows it, guaranteed you'll see us getting back to a sense of normalcy.
We are the United States Of America, we should be showing the world how strong we are, right now we're not exactly showing the world how we're dealing with this virus.
We need uniformity and standardization of government policy. Yes, there are external factors that are impacting decision making but our government has oversight of all actions as it was designed for. Yes our political parties have their agenda, sometimes polarized from each other but in the final analysis they do listen to us. Our freedom of the media is preserved no matter what our leaders say, we as Americans can decipher the truth.
So hang in there American and the sooner we follow social distancing and face mask, the quicker we get back on our feet and make this country prosper again.
We have to take change our lifestyle if no vaccine is found. You may all know that its never guaranteed that a vaccine will be found. then what?
If we have the attitude tht wearing a face mask violates your rights and the hell with social distancing, don't be surprised that our officials will put "Shelter In Place" again and then it will prolong recovery.
The opinions expressed are my own. I just felt I had to express my views. I went through the whole gamet of fear, shock, anxiety, stress, depression and boredom but I still maintain what little sanity I have going through this mess because I know my actions may result in someone's death. I wear a face mask to protect others and practice social distancing.
