Letter: We need to show support and compassion

A lot of us are just afraid/fearful

We need to show support and compassion

The divisiveness currently happening is so hard — I like things balanced and in harmony, basically the opposite of where we are right now. I am having a really hard time wrapping my head around some people’s behavior; some people are so angry with some of their fellow human beings. There seems to be an incredible increase in intolerance towards people who may think differently from ones’ own point of view. Yes, you all know exactly what I am talking about and it is all about COVID.

For my own sanity I need to get this off of my chest.

If you choose to get vaccinated, you are NOT a stupid, gullible, “sheeple”.

If you choose to not get vaccinated, you are NOT an ignorant, selfish a**hole.

A lot of us are just afraid/fearful. Maybe you are afraid of catching COVID, maybe you are afraid of the effects of the “jab”, maybe you are afraid of both. Maybe it is something else altogether.

I needed to get this off of my chest because some of the comments I see really, really bother me and make me feel so sad about where we have gotten to. I think that we all need to stop and remember, we are all human and we are all just trying to get through this time. We are actually in this all together and as such, we need to show support and compassion not the opposite.
