Dominica Coulthurst, Knockrow
I’m with you Mandy… all the way. Thanks so much for your Soapbox message last week. Always love your work. I am with you in my sadness and feelings of division in our community.
I went to a production in our local area the other evening and was disgusted with the behaviour of patrons who refused to wear a mask – even though it has been made a condition of entry.
My husband is currently awaiting a kidney transplant and needs to be careful in the community to keep his health safe. We felt that being in a community that professes to ‘love each other and care for their fellow beings’ that there would be that respect to follow conditions and wear masks and he would be safe – but no!
Those who feel so entitled do what they want without consideration, or to show off to their friends and make a scene; ‘look at me resisting’.
Where is their sovereign right to be a decent human being? (see sovereign rights p13). Is it a matter of divide and conquer? Fear leads to hate and violence and anger… so they deep down must be fearing something!
Bring back our hippy era of love for all. Bring back our true community, not these blow-ins with their self-righteous pain-in-the-arse attitudes.
What does it take to be a decent human being? A little kindness and consideration for others. How difficult is it to pop on a mask? You never know who you may have come into contact with, and you don’t know who is around you that could be vulnerable. Stay true.
