So, I really don’t want to talk more about COVID-19, but what else is there to talk about? But we have some big news right? Vaccines are here! And we have more coming from another company! That does make me feel good, but I know that it will take a while to vaccinate all the people. So… please… everyone… take… the… vaccine!!!
Listen, take the vaccine, for the love of God. We ain’t stopping this sickness through our behavior. As much as there are a lot of people out there doing the responsible thing, like social distancing, changing their lifestyle, and wearing masks, and just being aware of your surroundings; there are still some messed up people out there that aren’t doing anything at all to end this pandemic. It’s the people that think this is a joke, and it’s getting responsible people sick, it is getting the vulnerable, the people we need to protect, sick. So…. Since we suck at changing our lives collectively… take the dang vaccine. Listen up, take the vaccine when it is available, it will help end this crappy 2020 year.
End this pandemic so my kids can go back to school! It’s pretty messed up to think my daughter hasn’t seen her kindergarten class at all, and might be a possibility that she will never even have a kindergarten if this thing lasts until summer! That’s right.. she’s just going to go first grade… like, didn’t ever smile at her teacher, didn’t build relationship with any peers. That is nuts to think about…. So please everyone, take the effing vaccine!
Take the vaccine so I can visit my parents again! I miss them, and they are getting old and my mom and dad needs help around the house. I want to travel like more than 2 miles from the house. I travel to go to the post office… yup.. that’s it.
Take the vaccine, so I can go shopping again, and actually take Norah and Ben to Walmart so they can pick a toy to buy (hopefully not too expensive). So I can buy fresh veggies. All my shopping, even for groceries have been through Amazon… I can’t remember what an apple looks like man!
Take the vaccine, so I can go fishing more often. See, you think I’d be fishing more, but nope! Can’t do that because I have kids. My kids are home all the time thanks to COVID-19. So which means my wife and I are also at home. Most days are fun, but then there are those days that gets stressful.
Also, remember even if you get the vaccine, you still need to social distance and wear your mask. You are not safe until everyone gets the vaccine. So… yeah… everyone… or at least like 80% of you get the dang vaccine!
Let’s end this pandemic. Get the vaccine. Wear your mask, social distance when you are outside doing your shopping or going to church, or doing whatever… you know.. just be socially aware of your space. Wash your hands and be aware at how many times you touch your face. Hand sanitizer all the time. Come on, everyone, lets do it, let’s end this. We can all be a hero and save a life by doing these things.
Sorry… this blog was written on one of those days that I am stressed out looking at the damn obituary in the Altoona Mirror. That is a lot of people on there if you haven’t noticed in the last month. That’s messed up… and heartbreaking…
Hey this is Rev. Brian Choi's random thought throughout my week. Most of this stuff, will probably be about family, church, fishing, music, movies, food, whatever I think of, hopefully it will have some sort of theological reflection (maybe).
