I hope and pray that all people - and especially all here - get full protection as soon as possible and start steering out of this planetwide skid.
Fuck you, Covid.
Fuck you for taking sweet Michael at age 25, widowing his loving wife 8 months after they got married.
Fuck you for killing 3 of my wife’s friends’ parents and another few million children and parents and friends and colleagues.
Fuck you for destroying jobs and education and the commons and dreams and common sense.
Fuck you for giving despots and idiots more ammo for despotism and idiocy.
Here’s to what’s next.
Here’s to a new “normal” that includes enlightened, tolerant and fruitful conversation and compromise among people who disagree with each other. Here’s to government of, by, for and with people who bear each other up.
Here’s to better days.
Nobody mentioned “maudlin” is a Pfizer side effect. 😢
