Better Safe Than Sorry


Have you ever heard of the expression, "Better safe than sorry?"

In the journey of life, the unexpected, the tragic, the dangerous, happens all the time.  

Not everyone comes prepared for every contingency.   

Not everyone is an expert at everything.  

Not everyone prioritizes well-being and life top priority.

There are many aspects of life and humanity that are beyond politics, power plays and selfish interests, but not everyone thinks so.  

As of early February, 271 children have died from COVID-19.  

In Brazil, as of March, over 800 childrenunder age of 9 have died, though some experts believe the real number is three times higher.

As new variants of COVID-19 arise, we need to update our understanding of the contagion.  

Continue to take precautions.  

Just like we do not expect tactical teams to give up their protective vest while engaging an enemy combatant, do not give up your protective mask while engaging a potentially deadly contagion.  

Do not let your children become hosts to a virus that can potentially cause deadly harm.  

This virus constantly evolves and becomes more infectious and potentially deadlier to younger age groups.  

Weigh your options and outcomes.  

If on one end, is respiratory sickness which can impact brain development, breathing, long-term health disabilities and cost of life ….

It is too late to take precautions or life saving measures after death.  

Think through all the consequences.
