I mourn the loss of human connection.
I mourn the loss of get togethers just because.
I mourn for our country, the home of the brave, the land of the free.
I mourn what we have allowed our lives to become because of FEAR! How could this have happened? A country that has weathered far worse in its history has collapsed under the weight of a virus that is less dangerous than the flu. My heart breaks whenever I go to the grocery store or pretty much any place of business, because I no longer see faces, just masks. Masks that separate, masks that limit true human connection.
What have we become? How will we overcome the damage that has been done?
Is this the new normal? If it is, I want no part of it and I will never accept it.
I will continue to live as an American and I will never accept tyranny, even if that means I have to travel this road alone.
Still dreaming of America.
