As a white woman, the behavior of my selfish, self-centered sisters embarrasses the holy fucking shit out of me. The world "bitch slap" comes to mind, all day every day. I am a disabled vet, and while I stood for American freedoms, willingly gave my life and body to the Feds to do with what they would in defense of that freedom, FREEDOM is not the right to put others into harm's way, to use and abuse those who have the most to lose, and whose safety is compromised by a sucking self centered lifestyle. All my female friends, all but a few over sixty like I am, are still sheltered, or if we're out, we're masked and distanced. All of us, of all colors. I appreciate your voice on this, JV, this very much speaks for me, for those women I am proud to call my friends, whose hair is shaggy and whose bodies are dying for a massage or acupuncture. We are waiting our turn, and until it is safe. Because we give a shit.
