Dementia, Warning, Trump, Donald Trump

Mr. & Mrs. trump got their Covid shots in January.  The news was released this month, kept quiet, so as not to disturb the anti-vaxx-ers who support him, as well as his lies about the fact that Covid doesn’t exist, and if it does, it’s just like a bad cold or the flu.

Masks…a poem

Virus, Mask, Coronavirus, Disease

locked in
afraid of being touched
little eye contact
people rushing
back and forth
the pandemic
out of all of us

America, Usa, Flag, American, Old

Think about this...everyone is upset by what happened yesterday.  No one is talking about the thousands upon thousands of Americans who died from a virus that the president said didn’t exist and even if it did, it wasn’t worse than a cold.

He murdered them with his lies.  Why didn’t that lie. and all the dead people, get as much attention as this attack on the capitol?  An attack on the special people?

Why isn’t anyone talking about all those he killed with misinformation and lies?

The answer is because everyday, non-special people,  aren’t important, that’s why.  The special people, those who have power, count.  We don’t.  That’s why they are upset today.  They weren’t so special yesterday…they were more like us and they can’t allow that to go unnoticed or unpunished. Because it was all about them.

The orange one, and those republicans around him, ARE responsible for the deaths of thousands of people.  DEATH BY LIES.

Empty spaces…

brown wooden dining table with chairs

A beautiful and peaceful spot.  I can imagine the dust motes in the air.  A lovely place to sit and read, or talk with a friend, over a cup of something delicious.  But many places are empty spaces (Queen) today.  They sit and wait…for people to return and bring them back to life.

Doctors on news programs all say the same thing.  People aren’t taking this virus seriously.  They aren’t wearing masks, self distancing, or staying home.  They are also saying that people don’t understand numbers as large as the number of people who have died, let alone those who are in the hospital or sick.

I once said that we should get life size dolls, and pile them on the law of the White House.  One doll for each person who has died.  But that’s not a possibility.  However, maybe we could stick a windmill in ground that would stand for each person instead.  Think of how many we would need.  Think of how it would look.

We could have a COVID QUILT, like the AIDS QUILT.  Nothing will change until people can SEE the death toll.  Seeing is believing.  We need televised tours of Covid wards.  We need to DO something to help hospitals and staff, and one way to do it is to make the Virus REAL.

These might not be the best ideas, or even good ones, but if anyone has any way to SHOW the actual toll this virus is taking, the number of people who have lost their lives…I think it would wake more people up.  The installation has to be in one place.  Wearing ribbons, buttons, etc., won’t work.   It must be one massive display, so that the full impact can be seen/felt.

This might truly be impossible.  It could be too big to do, and there might not be anyone to organize it.  I don’t know.  It just seems as if something needs to be done.

There are 58,318 names on the Vietnam Wall.  Imagine the size of the wall that will be needed when this virus is over.  TheRe are 48,000 squares on the NAMES, AIDS QUILT.

Just think about it.
