I feel that I have seen most everything in life at my advanced age and one thing that I have noticed is that we don’t seem to care about others like we did. We see it in all walks of life, but this coronavirus scare is bringing out the worst in us. Not only do some actually try to profit off this we also notice an awful lot of really selfish attitudes about this virus scare. Too many younger people for instance, don’t even think about it because the chances of them dying from the virus are much less.
For example, I went into a local grocery store that advertised early openings for seniors. It was obvious that many didn’t get the message as the store not only was crowded but I doubt if half the people in there were seniors. Because it was so crowded we had to wait in line for a good 20 to 30 minutes to check out while hundreds of other shoppers passed by while we waited in the aisles. If the stores are going to do their part in this crisis then they should do it right or not at all.
As for the young folks, thankfully, there is the other kind of young person as well and God Bless them for their thoughtfulness. They are the ones that hopefully will ” inherit the earth.”
