So, as I was working out with my daughter in the park today, a gentleman made the above comment.
I believe I made a comment in the last email (or one of them at any rate) that I was NOT going to let the “sheeple”, or other members of my family dictate to me how to interact with or other take my daughter out for exercise (sorely needed to be honest!).
We already workout together doing a lot of Kiddie Fitness, and over the past few days I’ve been taking her for my workout #2 as well.
Along with me.
This plan threw a snag due to some going on’s with my S.O., but not for long.
And as an Indian gentleman walking nearby saw us (he shows up there daily for his evening walk I believe), he made the above comment.
“Hell yes! Finally, and it’s much needed! After all we have to stop being scared SOMETIME!”
He nodded in agreement.
“Ive got two young ones at home”, he said.
“Yes, and these young kids are going BONKERS sitting at home”, I said. “Going berserk more like it!”
And they are, my friend. They ARE.
“The *bleep* Chinese willingly spread this all over the world”, I continued. “Maybe if they had actually bothered to stop it when they first discovered it instead of willingly and knowingly infect everyone” . . .
“And now what” I continued.
“At some point people have to STOP being scared”
“How long are you going to buy into the panic”, I asked.
The gentleman was listening intently, hanging on to my words, and agreeing as well.
“I completely agree!”
And we bid “adieu” to each other as he went home with his wife, and I hope he’ll bring his two kids out to play tomorrow night too. In the meantime, I was getting my daughter doing timed holds on the pull-up bar . . . a makeshift one, hehe.
Basically she was hanging on to the rod that joins the swing set, and Papa was doing his pull-ups, slow and steady, up and down.
And after I took her home, I returned to the park, and had another great rope jumping workout.
Another personal record. Another day.
Spain, and a few other countries are starting to open up.
Eventually, so will the rest of the world - - there will be no choice!
And in a funny quirk of fate, the rogue nation that knowingly released the damn virus into the world is seemingly NEVER being able to get rid of the virus fully.
They tom tommed their successes galore, but the fact is that it spread from Wuhan to Harbin and now apparently Beijing again.
Good news, although the so called “second wave” is apparently rising, panic is falling in general.
And ANGER towards the PERPETRATOR of all this is rising, and not just in Asia. Not just Japan, ‘Nam, India, or any of the rest.
Anger is rising globally, and provided we USE that anger CONSTRUCTIVELY, it’s a good thing.
Don’t get mad. Or rather, do . . . and then get EVEN!
And that’s the only thing I have to say on that front.
Alright, my friend. I’m out for now. Back soon!
