There is no shortage of people out there who point to Covid still being around/Covid deaths as proof that we didn't do enough to between March and now. And that we haven't done enough to "deserve" college football/sports or whatever. The finger pointing towards all our transgressions and failures is abundant.
But for some reason, I don't feel guilty. I am not drowning in shame. I sleep well at night. Those that feel I haven't earned a return to normalcy would likely say I don't feel any guilt because I don't care for others. Because I am self-centered. Because I was selfish in helping my son get out to play some ball this summer. That I blew everyone's chances out of greed and impatience.
For anyone who feels that way, I'm drawing a line right here, right now. I'm pushing back on your ignorant narrative. I absolutely HAVE done my part. I am far from perfect, but I have done a ton to help us all weather this storm. I've sacrificed so many things to help make this thing end sooner than later. Things are that incredibly important to me and my family and make my life worth living. I've lost income. I've stayed at home. I've had to cash in my 401k to keep food on the table. I've sold things that were important to me. Further, I've taken extra precautions like washing my hands way more, constantly sanitizing, social distancing from my loved ones, and wearing a mask that I loathe 95% of the time I walk into a public place. I've kept my public appearances to a minimum. Not taken a single day of vacation. I could go on and on, but I want to pass the torch on now. Join me in educating those that feel you haven't done enough to deserve a return to the things that make you happy and add value and meaning to your life.
