Campaign For a Better Future.
In an attempt to get our kids back in school, we are being forced to accept a hybrid learning concept that lacks convincing scientific backing.
No doubt, the last year has been difficult on everyone, and I think we are all getting a little crispy around the edges. But in my heart of hearts, I really hoped that as soon as we reached the lowest COVID benchmark as we now have here in Wasco County, that we would all be excited to have our lives back.
I think everyone just wants to feel NORMAL again. I am ecstatic that the restaurants are open and I cant wait to see the busses rolling again. But I'm talking about NORMAL normal, not HYBRID normal. HYBRID normal isn't normal. Splitting the student body in half...having them go half-days on Monday and Tuesday, then have them all go back to on-line on Wednesday, and then back to doing half days on Thursday and Friday...THIS IS NOT NORMAL. Having perfectly healthy kids wear face masks all day is NOT NORMAL and it is also NOT HEALTHY. Having to wear a mask in stores and restaurants is NOT NORMAL.
Why are we being forced to accept this and why are our kids being forced to endure even more madness when we are at the LOWEST COVID benchmark. There is no lower benchmark being given for us to strive for then the one we are currently at. SO WHY THE MASKS ON OUR KIDS?
Somewhere along this journey we are all on, common sense and sound judgement exited the building. Has everyone forgotten that this virus has a 99.7% survival rate? We are being told it will never go away, it will be much like the cold and flu virus which we have been dealing with forever. It will likely have seasons of flare up and seasons of dormancy.
Is ALL of this insanity really necessary? Can ANYONE show me the Science that says this is what is best for our kids....because at the end of the day, isn't THAT what we are all about here?
