You see, the vaccine is like a special power which some will have and others won’t. If you’re in a plane that is going down, do you take a parachute or reject it? If you’re on a ship that is sinking, do you take a life vest and get into a lifeboat or reject it? If you’re in the emergency room with appendicitis, do you have the doctor conduct surgery or reject it? Do you trust the airplane pilot or do you plunge to your death? Do you trust the ship’s captain or do you drown in the icy waters? Do you trust the surgeon or do you die in agony from the ruptured appendix? It’s the same with the COVID vaccine. Do you trust the medical community and protect yourself from the deadly virus or do you open yourself up to a contagion that may kill you?
For me and for my family, we choose to protect ourselves and not face disease and death. For us, it’s simple. We want the special powers. But, you may prefer disease and death. And do make sure that your wills and insurance policies are up-to-date for you and your family. These may very well soon be needed for those within the group of people who don't want to be vaccinated. Your choice. Just understand the consequences you face.
