The only new year’s resolution that matters right now
Ted Folkert – January 1, 2021
Goodbye, 2020 – What a year to remember. A year of painful challenges from Covid19 and the universal negative impact it has had on our health, our lives, our economy, and our way of life.
And welcome, 2021, a year of hope in overcoming this pandemic disease, this killer disease, this highly contagious disease, and all of its devastating impacts on our health, our livelihoods, and our lives.
But changing the number from 2020 to 2021 is not going to change anything unless we all comply in every way possible with the steps necessary to overcome this pandemic challenge to human life. We must stay away from each other at all times possible. We must follow the advice of Dr. Fauci and the other experts on pandemic diseases by social distancing, wearing masks at all time when in any form of contact with others outside our households, getting vaccinated as soon as possible to protect ourselves and prevent transmission of the virus to others, washing our hands frequently and getting tested when there is any indication of infection.
This is not a time for showing our perceived toughness or fearlessness. Such childishness only endangers us and everyone around us, perhaps those who we most cherish as family members, friends and associates.
Do it for your family members. Do it for your co-workers. Do it for your classmates. Do it for you recreational associates. Do it for your neighbors. Do it for those who you appreciate more than anyone else. Do it for yourself. Do it for humanity. All of the above are under threat of this disease and it will only be eliminated as a threat to humanity through everyone’s cooperation.
