Beware the Idea of March

https://www.cnn.com/2020/03/15/us/ides-of-march-bad-luck-trnd/index.html

This is a day notoriously known as a day of Bad luck. I don’t know if I believe that. However, with this Corona Virus (COVID-19) declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) we need to be aware of what is going on around us.

In America, the Pandemic is greeted by partisan politics where elected officials are not on speaking terms and have failed their constituency with their delayed actions on a crisis no one took extremely serious.

And, because of this laissez-faire environment from the government the people are ignorant and acting in a manner that shows a disregard to the public health of all citizens. We have closed sporting seasons and schools, but keep all other non-essential businesses open. The cry is, we can’t close. People need their money. People need their checks.

But, instead of thinking about a system where the average person can’t miss paychecks we keep jobs open so they can survive. This is the ultimate Catch 22. It appears people are forced to be evicted and have no food or be at risk for exposure to a virus that the medical professionals can’t fully explain or cure.

In a society where Me is almost always over We, we see selfishness and a disregard for our fellow man. Maybe, this type of pandemic will have us review basic things like: 1) our federal budget allotment to public health organizations; 2) the gross income inequality that has caused lives to be at risk because of what closures would mean to the average family; 3) the dysfunctional government that has been behind from the beginning and is unable to be civil at a time where a state of emergency has been declared.

I think we should not only beware of the idea of March, we should beware 366 days of the year.
