With the current situation, the world seems to be imploding, its gone somewhat apocalyptic out there and I have to wonder what the hell is going on in some peoples head..
There is a virus spreading around the world and I am not talking about Covid 19 !! its the greed virus or as I like to call it.. Sod you pal I’m ok virus..
We see first hand all the empty shelves in the supermarkets and just today I witnessed the elderly being pushed out of the way in order for some bloke to get a pack of potatoes from the pile, its not even the last bag but he had to have it… And today I was ashamed to be a part of the human race..
All the toilet paper is gone, its probably for those who needed all the food, its certainly not for the virus..
Even people raiding the food bank boxes set up inside the shops..
With all that I do wonder why we bother, humanity is doomed, there’s no good left in the world…
There is a small ray of hope, look around the communities and there are little stories emerging, ok the cynic in me thinks that some are staged but they cant all be !
So what can we all do ? Social media is full of people trying to give a little hope to people, well it is if we ignore all the other crap..
The whisky world is beginning to group together, little messages, videos and offers to help are out there, you just have to look. i noticed today someone who i know to have health problems just talking when someone else offered to drive out to them to get anything they needed, its little things like this that gives us hope.
So the point to this is simple, if you can help someone out, then please do so, its not about scoring points, there is a real enemy out there and its a killer, old people need some help, the vulnerable need our help and most of all its not a crime to ask for help, its even less a crime to offer it !!
Please be aware there are others who need the simple things in life like loo roll, food, and just a few kind words..
Please and thank you seem to have been affected by the virus too..
Some people need to sit down and take a good look at themselves, I think they might just be ashamed if they did.. Well I hope they would be..
We all need to stick together in these dark times, show some compassion and use some common sense..
People are loosing their jobs.
People are loosing their homes.
People are loosing their lives…
Just give us a reason to believe once again…
