When a picture speaks a thousand words.......


?


The scene is far from unique: across Michigan and the country, people are protesting the mitigation measures health and safety experts say will help stymie the ongoing generational health crisis.

All the while, the pandemic rages on. The indicators of an impending surge have risen drastically: Case rates in Michigan are up more than 1,000% since June 22, the day Gov. Gretchen Whitmer's administration rolled back the remaining statewide pandemic orders. The test positivity rate is up more than 600% over the same time frame, according to a review of state data.

I just don't know how we got to this point how this ridiculous thing, a simple mask on someone's face, has become so divisive and political, said Davidson, who lives in Ottawa County and has children in a local school system. ............(more)

5. I went to a family funeral last week, my Dad's cousin died of Covid though she was fully vaccinated

There was only a funeral and burial ceremony and I hesitated going to the church, but every single person there was wearing a mask - including the boy who sat in front of me who was only about five. I was impressed with how good he was, but he was obviously used to it - his mask was smaller, like he was, I'm guessing it was made just for him.
