Raging Epidemic

I can always tell when Trump is lying. His lips are moving.

Election day is almost upon us. The polls show that Biden is ahead. I am surprised by the amount of voters favoring Trump. I didn’t think that many people would be that gullible.

Both Trump and Biden are good speakers and make a good case for why you (we) should vote for them.

This is a tough time we are living in. The world is in a coronavirus epidemic. 

People are dying by the thousands every day. Every TV news broadcast shows the amount of people who were infected, the number of people who survived and the number who died. It is, by far, the worst epidemic the world has ever seen. 

I, at the age of 4, lived through the 1918 flu epidemic. Will I live through this one? No one is safe.

Trump appears on TV without wearing a mask. He is our president, our leader and should be setting an example. Instead, he flaunts the advice of his administration’s leading health experts cautioning the public about the deadly coronavirus ravaging the world.

A definition of a fool is a person who does not recognize proven facts, what he sees. 

That is our president. 

Woe is us. Our world is still in the middle of it.

At the age of 106, I hope I’m around. I will take all the necessary precautions to survive this pandemic. Please be prudent, like me. 

Good luck,
