Locking down the economy to protect the over 70’s? What a liberty!
I passed 70 in April. I may not have many years left, so I surely won’t be spending them cowering indoors in fear of the hellish plague, barking and snarling outside my front door like a pack of hounds. I long ago took the decision to open the door and tackle the hounds head on. Guess what? I found there is no pack of hounds: not even a friendly poodle. It’s a tape-recording of a pack of hounds.
To anyone – over 70 or otherwise – fearing being a victim of Covid, I offer this advice: make your peace with God, step out in faith and all fear will be gone. When the Lord is the stronghold of your life, of whom should you be afraid?
