Public Covid Statment

My Statment about my life with covid around me please read

Hello this is Kilroy here, I would like to speak to you about covid I am not here to start a fight or make anybody mad:

I would like to ask you a question, when is the last time you hugged someone you love?

For me it was July 24, 2021, that was the date I hugged my mom for the last time knowing that it would be a long time before I could ever hug her again, if ever. Because I went on the philmont trip, it was about 2 weeks from school starts so there was an exact overlap from when I got back + 2 weeks = first day of school, and for me that meant first day of being potentially exposed on a daily basis, now every time I am around my mom we have to wear our masks, I understand that for a lot of people covid is over, but for some it is not. I wish I could have my mask off, I wish I could not have to worry every time someone keeps having a bad cough that I am going to cary something home, I am sick and tired of this just like everybody was, but for everybody they could say, “welp it don’t affect me or I had it” I can’t if I test positive according to her doctors that would be a death sentence for my mom. And don’t say that she needs to get her vaccine, she has had 4 full dose shots, and what would be about 90-95% affective to most people was 0.02% affective to her. I wish I could say that people care, but they make it very clear that they don’t, so I would like to thank everybody who is still wearing there masks, thank you, you know who you are. I know it might not seem like a huge deal, but to me it is. Also just so you know, I have ears, I am not asking you not to talk about stuff around me, but please be sensitive. I wrote this just to give you a glimpse into what it is like for me after hearing people talk about how they don’t care, I know this is not going to change anybody, but I needed to get this out. Thank you for hearing this and please just be nice. Thank you —Kilroy
