I’ll be damned if this isn’t truth in a picture.

This is a screenshot that someone else took that has been disseminating around… but still. This is scary.

And people wonder why teachers are reluctant about being forced to open their classroom doors back up. The United States practically, and with good reason, closed everything down when the pandemic first started, but the economy and “starting everything back up again” now takes precedence when things are so much more worse than they were when the pandemic started. We’re playing with people’s lives here, and people in the highest positions of power do not seem to get that, or worse — they don’t seem to care at all.

I try not to make too many assumptions, but it is beginning to look more and more like “don’t seem to care”.

As I have come to discover, the United States is actually a frightening place to be in a global pandemic.
