RE: Experiencing the new normal.

in Project HOPE10 months ago

I agree with your point of view, society has lost the conscious focus on life's priorities, putting material need first.

On several occasions, I have tried to put myself in the shoes of those who have this way of thinking and doing things, but I have not been able to do so. I am one of those who always has the will to do what is consciously right in the face of any adversity, however, there are those who lack the will, creativity and tools to face these difficult situations.

A clear example is us, at least in my case, I am actively working in some websites, to try to get an income to help me supplement what I receive from my real job to meet the basic needs of our family, like you, I only go out when necessary, but as I said, not everyone has the tools, many do not have computers, and in my country Venezuela, we do not have at this time good quality internet services, which makes it difficult for those who do not have a monthly salary.

There are cases where the risk of going out to look for an income is justified, not having anything in the refrigerator while the children are crying is a strong reason for that, but there are those who have the resources to keep themselves safe and secure and they do not do it, thus allowing an increase in the probability of contagion in society.

Sort:  

I understand perfectly the people who need to go out to work and get money to feed their families and pay their bills. But many of them still do it without following security measures and that is very sad to be seen. In this case, the government should be the greatest force to keep many of these people at home (those who do not work on the front lines in the fight against the virus) and provide a monthly payment.

So, @adeljose... My post is more aimed at irresponsible people who are putting not only themselves at risk, but also many other people.

Of course, my friend, I understand your point and I support it.

However, we have to see those who are most affected. Here is my recent publication on this subject.
