My dad served in the Air Force. Growing up that meant that we as a family also served. We lived at Andersen Air Force Base on Guam In the mid-to-late 1960s. Although I now know the wrong done during the Vietnam war, or as the Vietnamese call it, the American War, there were people hurting that my mom, as head of the Red Cross, and subsequently her kids, helped to give comfort.
I share this self history as it reminds me that I need to serve during this time of peak covid. We are all caught in a battle against covid. It is not a battle we want, however we have no choice. How people choose to fight this battle is as mixed as during the Vietnam war.
I work face-to-face with the public. It is dishonest of me to not take every effort possible to keep someone else from getting covid. Personal responsibility falls squarely on each of us in this time of covid. To know the facts and willingly subject myself and others to danger is a huge corruption of personal responsibility.
For this reason, I must take another pause from meeting clients in person as it is the responsible thing to do. Regardless of the financial/lifestyle hurt this decision imposes on me, community and world health far outweigh my personal needs.
My wish is that those who are inconvenienced and feel morally oppressed by the actions necessary to stop covid realize that this is their time to serve. No one wants a war, however, when the fight comes to you, on your soil, it is everyone’s duty to fight back.
