Opinions

One thing I have learned since last February is that this world is full of truths, untruths. and everyone has an opinion. I have learned that I better be selective on who I listen to, and I am certainly convinced I may never trust some media sources ever again. Social media has allowed anyone in the world to post whatever they want, whenever they want without any supporting documents or proof. Unfortunately, I have also learned that the majority of people believe what they read on social media without questioning the validity of it. There are so many arguments out there about whether masks work or not, “Is the vaccine going to be safe?”, “Are children in danger?” and originally whether COVID-19 was even real. I have certainly learned the answer to the last one as has the rest of the world. I don’t remember at any point in my lifetime losing so many close people or seeing so many funeral announcements. The pain and suffering brought on by this pandemic will never be forgotten by any of us in this country.
