compassion

there needs to be equal compassion for those following the rules, staying home, giving up things in their life, buying local and doing everything to help their fellow neighbour only to have their own lives turned upside down by preventable spread. my in person education was cancelled today for the upcoming year. that means the gym, the residence, the mental health support, the social support, the everything is gone. with student funding held up by controversy and disability funding held up by politics, life can be frustrating. am I going to get angry? am I gonna stop following the rules? heck no. virtues are virtues. I will be a good person regardless of how much other peoples ignorance f*cks my sh*t up.

Equal to what?

Maybe it’s your use of the word compassion that confuses me. Are you actually trying to say that people should recognize and appreciate those who are trying to abide by the rules and do their part? I think perhaps that word would be more appropriate. I’m also one of those who aren’t convinced that this thing is over and it’s very difficult sticking to social distancing and wearing masks when so many others seem to have abandoned both. However, I’m not looking for praise as it’s not necessary, anymore than I need to be praised for for doing the right thing any other time.

If we all keep up the preventative safety stuff we're supposed to be doing then things will improve. It's a shitshow south of us and we don't need to go there now do we? Good on you for being smarter than some folk.
