Stand and be Counted

Let’s go all in and be counted, not as a statistic but as someone who did what was asked and came out the other end, healthy, happy and hopefully with a new appreciation for what is important in life.

Some people consider themselves above reproach, immune to the current virus and the only thing that does is put them and everyone they come in contact with at risk. I’ve heard people say ‘you never think it will happen to you’, well my friends at that point it is too late. We all need to be vigilant if we are to come out the other side of this.

Many people are doing the right thing and staying home, only going out when they need medication or food (essential goods) and they are buying only what they need for a week or two so that there is enough for everyone. We shop all year round and no one ever ran out of supplies or food. If you haven’t already, make a commitment to follow this and wear gloves, and then wash them as soon as you get home, don’t wear the same gloves over and over again. If you wear disposable gloves then dispose of them in the garbage.

If you have symptoms stay home. If you don’t, stay home. Find projects inside and outside of your house to keep you busy if you must but be one of the ones that can say ‘I did what was asked and I am okay’.

All essential workers are out there doing their part so we can keep going. They have already counted themselves in, let’s ensure they are kept safe by doing our part. This is the best way we can show our appreciation and help keep them safe.

We want everyone to be okay and the only way that will work is if each of us goes all in, so when this is over we can all stand and be counted as a survivor not as a statistic.

Let’s go all in, put your hand or your foot in the virtual circle. Remember, only you can decide how you will stand and be counted.
