I was perusing Bruce Catton’s classic book, Surrender at Appomattox, when I came across William Tecumseh Sherman’s famous quote, war is hell.
After accepting the pandemic as a foreign enemy we just can’t see, I’ve concluded, it sure is.
Seems that fear and the virus are still doing their damned duet, attacking in equal measure with no end in sight despite the rise in vaccinations.
Yes, like a puppy, I have had my shots, but this seems irrelevant to my floor mates.
There are two people in particular, still treating me whenever we meet, like a leper, and with ferocity I might add. I always pause before pouncing in defense, because I know they’re not at their best, but beginning not to care.
Enough is enough.
Individuals should realize, this isn’t only happening to them, it’s affecting all of us, and we’re finally, if you take your smug heads out of your ass, coming out of the wilderness.
We are, so buckle up neighbors.
Kindness, by the way, should be up front, not ricocheted resentment wrapped in fear like a bad burrito.
We lead by example, and goodness comes with little cost.
To quote the Talmud...The highest form of wisdom is kindness.
I personally think, that, and smack your neighbor should become law.
Glad I got that off my chest. I’m now a whole new girl. 🙂
I'm just a girl who likes to write slightly on slant. I've had a career in fashion, dabbled in film and to be honest, I don't like talking about myself. Now my posts are another matter so I will let them speak for themselves.
