Food For Thought…

While out on my daily walks this past week at a beautiful forest park in the middle of the city where I live,  I noticed many people out walking, running and biking along the trails…without masks…and without social distancing, which is posted in visual and worded detail, upon entering the park… Children are present with a parent or two…Boys and girls soccer teams…elderly people…without masks…sans social distancing….

Here is some food for thought…

We all breathe the same air… when people are running without masks, walking, biking and socializing, believing that they are protected because they are in the “open air”…did you ever stop to think about the transmission of this virus? It is AIRBORNE…

The open air, is not going to protect you from the virus…because it is airborne.  It travels through the air.  When someone coughs…or sneezes…or breathes heavily, as in running, they are releasing particles from their mouths…which are large particles…aerosol in nature, into the open air… When one comes behind them, they are exposing themselves to whatever is lingering in the air after that person or persons has expelled the contents of their person…into the air.

Asymptomatic…contagious…one has no idea…yet, one is exposing themselves to a greater possibility of contracting Covid-19, because they believe they are “safe” in an open air environment. So…why wear masks? Why practice social distancing? Why care about the next person? Chances are, you’re good, right?

Wear a mask. Period. Practice social distancing. Period. Why take chances? Maybe it would take you or someone you love to contract this disease…would that bring it home to finally take heed?

Don’t play Russian roulette with your health or the health of others… Until everyone takes this virus seriously and practices social distancing and wearing masks…it’s going to prolong the longevity of this disease.  Defiance will only result in more sickness…death…and shutdowns…

This is the new normal…be flexible and willing to change your lifestyle for now. If everyone does their civic duty to themselves and our communities, we can and will beat the odds of this pandemic.

This virus is airborne…wear a mask at all times, outside of your home…no matter what you are doing…and especially when you are out at parks and recreational areas where groups of people gather…believing…that because they are outdoors…they are safe…and there is no need of masks…or social distancing…

Nothing could be farther from the truth…use common sense…be wise…once this virus is under control and a vaccine is available, safe, tested and proven to contain and stop the spread of Covid-19…then…and only then…can masks come off…and social distancing, will clearly be a choice of liking or disliking someone enough…to let them get close….

Just some Food For Thought……

Earth Day Message…She Is Healing…

Today is Earth Day…and during this pandemic which has resulted in social distancing and home confinement…it has also brought about the Earth healing herself…from humankind!

Without the tons of vehicles coming and going which contribute to the polluting of the air, the air is cleaner and clearer…

Without the water vessel traffic on Earth’s oceans, seas and rivers and lakes, these living waters have been able to begin a cleansing to clear the waters of pollutants dumped callously about by humankind…

This pandemic is indeed a wake up call to humanity…in more ways than one…

The message is loud and clear:  Take care of  the human race, take care of your planet… If this crucial message is not received…the next wave of truth will be just as devastating as what we are now bearing witness to…

I have been observing people in my city…it is heartbreaking to see those who are not practicing social distancing, or protecting themselves, or their children, or others… by covering their faces while out and about shopping for food or other essentials (or non-essentials) observing latex and vinyl gloves thrown about parking lots and sidewalks…

We must learn to live in harmony with our surroundings…our environment. The ground is not our trash bin.

Until a vaccine is discovered for this virus, and produced, masks and social distancing is the new normal… until that day happens.  No one is invincible…no one is untouchable… The sun and warm days are not going to make this viral pandemic disappear or go away…

Life as we once knew it…is gone forever.  It will never come or be…again.  A new world is emerging, and this change is happening now…and it will continue forward…with or without the cooperation of humanity….

It is time for balance…

The Earth is healing…

Humanity is being given the opportunity to heal…

Learn and live the meaning of love…in all of its many facets…especially loving your neighbor as yourself…we are all brothers and sisters…in a world of one race…The human race….

The Earth will heal and cleanse herself… with or without man’s intervention…or  continued destruction…The law of the Universe is Balance…. and balance it will.

Earth Day Message…She Is Healing…

Earth Message to Humanity…Heal your hearts and open your minds…

The Universe is preparing to Balance…denial and ignorance will not stand in its way…

It’s time to change…or get lost in the transformation…

Heal….
