Have you ever been out gathering cattle when everything is going great and then one cow breaks loose? If you have then you know things can be kept together by simply, or not so simply, bring that one animal back into the group. Or the other end of the spectrum after the first one breaks loose every other bovine sees freedom and breaks free as well? When that happens it feels pointless to even try to get the herd back!!! Been there on both accounts I can proudly say. You might wonder why I’m recalling this type of event.
Well with the Covid pandemic lurking among us it seems we are the bovines being gathered. To me it seems like the powers to be are trying to keep us locked up to “keep us safe”. Make no mistake I bought into this mindset for a small period of time. But eventually I was the one cow that broke free trying to escape being corralled. I’m noticing that others too are trying to get back into the freedom realm by still being mindful of Covid but returning to life. The mainstream media would have us believe if we are living the life, we are bad citizens by infecting everyone around us. Last I checked we are still living a life of freedom. But if we don’t wake up we won’t have these many freedoms we enjoy. The way I see it is this, we can fight to maintain life as we know it or do nothing like the fore mentioned cattle led to the corral. Or we can get back to common sense and simply use precautions when we go out. Wash your hands, clean your stuff, and don’t get crazy…. I don’t think mask are the savior but if you do then wear them. Don’t dictate one way or the other.
My closing point is this. Quit letting fear tactics rule your emotions. Start living again!! Think on your own without turning on the news to see if it’s okay to walk outside your home. When you see an American flag realize you are free to do as you please, within the limits of the law! Nope it’s not okay to go shoot up people you don’t like. Nope it’s not okay to go burning businesses. Nope it’s not okay to tear down monuments that molded us to our great nation. Nope it’s not okay to force your ideas on someone who opposes your view. Common sense people!!! Now go out and have a great rest of your day as you think about the herd mentality. 🐮
Herd immunity may be reached when a sufficient number of people in the population have recovered from a disease and have developed antibodies against future infection.

“So all the men of Israel withdrew from following David and followed Sheba the son of Bichri; but the men of Judah remained steadfast to their king, from the Jordan even to Jerusalem.”
