Country to Remain Closed Until it Goes to Its Room and Thinks About What it’s Done
Lady liberty in time out.
Uncle Sam has put us in time out, but only because Mommy and Daddy need to have a grown-up talk and they don’t want us to hear.
Like a child told to go to their room, America too has responded with more than a little push back to the country being shut-down. Many rallies have been held in favor of re-opening the country amidst a global pandemic and while no one likes to feel like their rights are being infringed upon sometimes Mommy and Daddy are doing what is best for us.
Right now there is a toxic conversation going on downstairs that is manifesting in the form of a global pandemic. If we the people would eavesdrop on this conversation, it could have a serious impact on how we mature into our early teens.
But we’re not a kid, the government ain’t our mothers and fathers, and I have rights. Yes, you’re right. No, actually you’re right. This is tough. Yeesh. I don’t know I guess, wait… The conversation can’t last forever… right?
