This morning, I sat down to watch CBS Sunday Morning. It's been an enjoyable Sunday routine, for months. But before I eased into the show, I spotted this on TV. I grabbed my phone and took a crooked photo of this historic moment.
For the first time, President Trump allowed himself to be seen in public wearing a mask. He has refused for months and suddenly he surprised us with his new look. I so wish I could actually hear the true and honest answer, if I were to ask. "Why Mr. President, have you now decided to wear a mask?"
Kind of Late
I wish Trump had worn a mask months earlier. He could have modeled a little cautious and courteous behavior and helped others catch on.
Our numbers might have been lower in Texas, if more people had been taking this pandemic seriously. It's nauseating to stop and think of how many people have been following Trump's lead.
It seems like just yesterday, we passed 100,000 fatalities.
Where is this really going?
We first worried most for people in China, than Italy, then New York. Now the it's all so close.
And this is what's happening in Houston. We live just miles away, in Fort Bend County, where hospitals are at pre-surge levels. We are averaging about 1,000 covid tests per day, with a positivity rate of about 10%.
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
