They had no answer. And now, I understand why we're where we're at where we're at these days. Churches are closed. Mental health care isn't happening. We're pretty much on our own, and now I see why people are taking to the streets with their rage - they literally have no place else to go. Now we're talking about replacing the police with social workers? Good Lord, ya'll, I'm glad we stocked up on ammo this past weekend. I also understand why the place was crowded. And I'm so glad I didn't go through with my original intentions to be a therapist. Being a writer was definitely the right call for me. People like fiction better than reality anyway. It certainly makes more sense these days!
The world has become an inferno of madness, and it's our own fault. COVID-19 wasn't handled properly because Wuhan had "their rights" not to be shut down AND the government said they "had it" in January when, in fact, they didn't. Now we've been in shutdown for months, are reopening in uncertainty, and the economy is crashing faster than I can drop a dish. There's no moral compass or accountability in place. There are no consequences for anything. As the Bible said about the days of the judges, we're back at the place where everybody is doing what's right in their own eyes, and it's a darn mess. The powers that be with their know-it-all big egos have created the perfect monster, and now they've lost control of it.
I don't know what the answer is, but I am sorry that I steered you wrong in my last entry. At least I can admit it. I have no problem with that. I guess we're all left to get by the best we can. Keep praying and I hope you can get by with a little help from your friends. I know we can't live in fear, but the world is becoming a scarier place every day, and it's causing everybody to rethink everything they know.
Here's my new theme song for the inferno that is our world now. I just pray we make it through to the other end of this apocalyptic madness.
That's all today. Take care, folks, and stay safe.
