Hey Omaha! What's Going On!
If you're reading this, thank you for taking the time. I will continue to write in a weekly basis - I know I know, I've said that before. This time I will keep my word. What's different this time around, you may ask? Well, I have recently been reminded that writers will continue to write and send it out to the world - what happens after that, it's none of their business. The audience will have their own opinion and perspective. Again, my job as a writer is to write and send it out. This is the difference. I have been empowered and I am going to keep on going.
It was around my birthday the last time I typed anything at all. I have been busy rolling with the punches that COVID brought upon the healthcare field. It's been a roller-coaster of emotions. As of right now, eight months since the world shut down, I think most of us have accepted our new normal. We all wear masks, even those that do not believe in the pandemic, must wear one if they want access to businesses. Life must go on, but I still believe it will go back to what it used to be. I am tired - mentally and physically. While others out in the world bitch and moan about having to quarantine, I have not had a day off. Don't get me wrong, I am aware of the privilege I hold at this moment in time. I am thankful to still have a job while others have lost it and others do not qualify to financial aid.
Going into the ninth month of COVID, all we ask of the world - especially in Omaha - is to help us stop this. Hospitals are overflowing, nurses and doctors are overworked. Health Care Centers have extended their hours until 11pm and the staff is overwhelmed. Please wear your mask, keep your distance, avoid crowded areas, sanitize, and keep yourself and loved ones safe.
