I have tried to be very encouraging in my posts during this COVID19 pandemic. I truly believe that there is no room for panic, over reacting, fear, anxiety, or disrespect during times like these. But I have something to say, so here it is…
Let me start by making it clear, I have a very real understanding of being falsely accused and mistreated. I know the game is rigid from personal experience. That being said, I believe in second chances, and new beginnings. So, I think that is possible for all people, organizations, governments, nations, etc.
A lot of people are discussion on social media about contact tracing, vaccines, and civil liberties.
Some are saying what is the big deal with contact tracing, what is the big deal with manditory vaccines.
Contact tracing of people who have been exposed to a deadly virus sounds like a very good idea. But the problem isn’t about contact tracing a disease, illness, or sickness. The issue is bigger than that. For me, a bill that allows someone to come to my home, and remove a family member from my home without my permission as a parent, or spouse, is an issue. Bill 6666, is not just about tracing an illness. It is about sending barely trained, and slightly educated personnel out to collect data, and to determine if a person should be removed from their private residence. This is NOT about keeping people healthy and safe. This is about controling the people. Now I am not suggesting that we riot or push against set laws. But I am suggesting that we remember that this is still a country established on the premise of a government run by the people for the people. We have the right and priviledge to be educated about the law, to petition our legislation, and to demand our executve branch listen to us. Contact tracing in and of itself, is not something I am upset about. The issue is with the method, training, and lack of education in this matter.
We need to be informed, we need to educate others, and we need to be considerate of others. If we really want to help all the people, we need to quarintine the sick, and at risk. We need to be sure that they are being cared for in safety, and without fear. This is what contact tracing should be used for. It should be used to find the sick and care for them in the safest way. Not by testing the healthy. Not by removing the at risk from their private residence. Sadly, this is not the plan the government has for tracing. We must be wise as serpents.
It is a very dangerous way of treating the sick to keep them from their primary care givers, their family. When we seperate sick or injured people from the people that love them and know them, we risk death.
Moving on to vaccines.
Vaccines, true vaccines that are made with the intention of creating immunity are not necessarily a bad thing. The issue with vaccines today, and especially with the vaccines being made right now is safety. Mass producing untested vaccines for an illness that we do not even understand completely is dangerous. Vaccines that create a true immunity need to be made with care and time. The other issue with vaccines that are made today is they have a lot of ingredients that are harmful and do NOT help in creating immunity. Lastly, people are all different, and a vaccine that works for one person, might kill or permanetly harm another. There is no such thing as a one size fits all method to immunology. This is a false idea that has been pushed for the last 40 years.
If we really believe in herd immunity, then the best way to create a healthy immunity is for us all to get back to living in community. This is the proper way to vaccinate a group of people.
Lastly, I want to talk about civil liberty or civil disobedience. The United States of America is a unique country in that it is established and run by the people. ALL the people. It doesn’t discriminate. That is what our current constitution says. Sadly, the truth is, many people do not know what their constitutional rights are and how to excercise them. I have the right and priviledge to disagree with my elected leaders. I have the right and freedom to stand up for my constitutional rights. But even though I have those rights, I, as a human created in the image of my Creator, should not disrespect the person or their position. I have the right to disagree and to voice my disagreement. But, as a believer, I need to always remember that all people are created in the image of Yehovah. There is a fine line between excercising my constitutional right and being unkind and disrespectful.
Whenever I am on social media it is easy to get worked up about someone else’s post. But the truth is I don’t know what prompted the person to write the post, and I don’t know their personal struggles. I have a couple options when I see a post on social media that I disagree with or that get’s me upset. First, I can just remove the post. You can almost always hide a post. Second, I can private message the person and ask for clarification, or offer compassion. Lastly, I can make a real big mess by commenting and posting things that will be misunderstood by others and just make others upset. Usually, if I find myself upset over and over by things on social media, I just take a break from it for a while.
These statements above are my personal feelings and thoughts.
If you disagree with them, I will not be debating with you, because it is not an issue worth fighting over.
