We are looking at ourselves in a mirror and we are ugly people. Who hasn’t heard comments that the virus isn’t a crisis because it only kills old people who are in nursing homes waiting for death. Of course, that isn’t a true statement but who worries about truth these days? Who has empathy? Who is intelligent enough to read the scientific and medical articles about the virus and make thoughtful and compassionate decisions and plans? Tragically, the answer to all those questions is “Very few”.
Excellent piece, Kathryn, one that should be read by all.
