Today is Monday, July 13, 2020. We are in the midst of a global pandemic called COVID-19, and the good old USA is leading the pack with 3,464,720 people infected, 138,095 deaths, and 1,541,580 recovered. To put that into perspective the global number of people infected is 12.9 million, the number of deaths is 571K, and the number recovered is 7 million.
The statistics are alarming — especially since we are supposedly a superior presence in the world; however, based on the defiant behaviors of many USA citizens I pretty much disagree. Quite a few people in the USA are downplaying the seriousness of the pandemic climate — they refuse to follow social distancing requests, and have all out tantrums when asked to wear masks that would help in the prevention of infecting themselves and others.
In addition to the pandemic, the USA and many other countries are dealing with blatant acts of racism. Here in the USA, the Black Lives Matter revolution is now in full effect because of all the senseless murders by the hands of corrupt police officers and racist whites that are now being recorded. Thanks to cameras on smartphones which thousands now possess. They can no longer deny the murderous attacks on blacks when the heinous and inhumane events are now being captured by cameras.
I’m not sure how well written my self-expression is, but I felt compelled to write something in my blog about the events taking place in 2020. The global economy is very fragile right now. The citizens of other countries seem to be dealing with the pandemic better than the USA. The utter arrogance of many people in the USA has really been eye-opening and a disappointment. The current leadership in this country has failed miserably in handling things.
All we can do is hope for the best, and vote in numbers when November 2020 comes.
