whoa. i just talked to a buddy who had it race through her family too, lost her g-ma and another relative. wretched.
This is SO sad. I understand his guilt but his drive to get together with family is so normal. This could’ve happened to me after I watched a Steeler’s game at Buffalo Wild Wings because it wasn’t broadcast on my TV. If I got myself or my husband or anyone sick because I sat at the bar while awaiting a “safer” table, I would’ve been devastated. It’s unbelievable how Covid takes out whole families and bypasses others like a tornado thru a town. Very powerful and sobering.
omg, RIGHT. I feel that totally. The balance between craving personal connection and IRL time with the people I love and being safe is hard. I have a few time gone in for a hug after not seeing a friend in person for a year and had to apologize "crap, omg I'm sorry I just missed you". so surreal
What is hard here is that this could've been a lot of people. Even people who are taking the virus very seriously can have it rip through their families and communities.
Actions have consequences.
Small decisions with a huge impact. I feel like a lot of people out there need to read this. But then again... the people I’m thinking about probably don’t read to begin with. sigh
Wow, this is powerful. Very sad.
Wow! What a story. Guilt seems a terminal dis-ease. This is really heavy.
