We must change attitudes, abide by guidelines: El Paso Times reader

This morning I woke up with a strong urge to call my mother, but as I reached for the phone, I realized that mom was no longer here with us. She left us back in 2014 at the age of 98. I then went into my art studio where I saw a picture of her and that’s when I told myself, what would I do if she was still here with us in the middle of this pandemic? I would climb the highest mountain, swim the oceans wide to protect her, so why are there so many of us so careless when It comes to protecting yourself or your loved ones.

Too often we hear and see just how many people are so careless when it comes to ignoring the guidelines set by our law officials or medical experts on what to do in combating the coronavirus.

A few weeks ago, cases were on the decline, but now they are shooting sky high and what do you think is one of the main reasons? If we don’t change our attitudes we’ll be entering into the valley of darkness with no light at the end of the tunnel.
