We need to move forward and show compassion. Instead your recent article (‘What to do about businesses that won’t use the card’) on how to fine those who do not comply with vaccine passports, is keeping the anger and controversy going.
People are trying to wrap their minds around all the changes we have encountered these last two years and it is going to take time and patience and caring and understanding and gentleness.
Life as we know it changed the day the world shut down for COVID 19! The whole world! Something we have never seen before! And life has not returned to what we would call normal since and now we must adjust to a new normal.
Are we helping people adjust? No we are not! Instead we are taking sides and being forceful! We are exposing those who are afraid of getting the vaccine and bullying them instead of making a safe environment for them to express their concerns and come to a place where they are able to change their minds and get vaccinated.
Anti vaccine people are actually Anti government and they are a small group. There are people out there who have reacted to vaccines In the past or who have had Anaphylactic reactions to different things and those people are afraid of what the vaccine is made up of! We have lumped these people into the same group as Anti vaccine people. Is that fair?
We need to move forward!!! We have to stop with all the negativity and anger and fear! Do people not see if we don’t stop taking sides and start pulling together we will move to a place where anger and fear will take someone’s life not COVID.
You are someone in our community who could spread a message of a very different kind and we need a different message! Will you stand up and be that person?
