This IS a war. No different. The front lines are the paramedics, doctors, nurses; a lil further back the essential store workers and essential government workers.
We in North America / Caribbean, are in a worst position than WW1 & WW2. Those were up until Pearl Harbour, on the other side of the world. The enemy could be targeted and eliminated. We the citizens were distanced.
This, is the enemy within our borders. Within our bodies. Miniscule. Unseeable. Unfightable. Only semi avoidable with social distancing and sanitizing.
This is a war. An unfightable war. A war that can possibly be slowed but not stopped. This is a war that can last many many months. 2 or 3 weeks isolation is a joke when 8 weeks is needed. This is a war that is destroying families, and building families. This is a war that is destroying minds and hearts.
No matter your decisions you or someone else gets fucked, and not only by the virus. By the social and work situations you find yourself in.
This is like all wars.
YOU ARE DAMNED IF YOU DO AND DAMNED IF YOU DON’T.
Listen to the palms…
