I wrote this (below image) on my personal facebook on May 16th. My wifes Godmother had passed away, unrelated to Coronavirus. At the time all my friends in Austin were social distancing, but I kept seeing friends and family in my Hometown of Corpus Christi, Tx. post pictures at the beach, not social distancing, hugging each other in photo’s and at house parties. The image below was a reflection of me constantly showing my wife pictures of people not practicing safe social distancing. What I wrote are my thoughts, and mine alone.

“My wife has a cousin, cousins spouse, and child who went to the beach few weekends ago in Corpus Christi and have since tested positive for Covid-19. Her family asked her not to post about it online, but I’m not fb friends with any of them. Instead of asking her to post their stories to educate, warn, and ask people to stay home and protect friends and loved ones, they are embarrassed and asked for silence. This is one of many reasons and examples of how this virus is not going to end anytime soon. Silence is not the cure, and neither is gathering in public. Stay home, stay safe, wear PPE around anyone you don’t live with and help slow the spread of this virus.”
