While I thank God I have made it a year in a pandemic, I really would be feeling God’s work was honored if nursing home deaths were held accountable.
We can all pat ourselves on the back for surviving a year, or we can fight for justice for the families of loved ones that were killed due to heinous policy.
When NYS Attorney General Letitia James released her findings on Governor Cuomo’s March 24th, 2020 directive to put COVID positive patients back into nursing homes, the Governor’s bright lights started to dim into the accusations of sexual assault. Yet, let’s not forget the AP and others reporting nearly 20k underreported nursing home deaths in New York State! The Cuomo cover – up is worse than Nixon in that it hid DEATH! This is a criminal offense and obstruction that has eyes at the FBI and DOJ investigating right now!
The other underreported injustice is the fight to be free from domestic abuses amidst the lockdown. According to the IndexJournal reporting, the CDC, the very agency telling us how important and safe lockdowns would be, also reported that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men have experienced domestic abuse . (IndexJournal). This disturbing trend has to come to light. I read stories of pizza places becoming safe havens for the abused in their communities . Why would the CDC make citizens live in fear not just from a pandemic but from those who live right in the same house? Why didn’t this get much attention?!
Let’s also talk about how this year of pandemic led to many horrific cases of people contemplating suicide. According to the Washington Post, 1 in 4 young adults had at one point seriously considered suicide . (Washington Post) As far as actual suicide deaths a a result of the lockdown, numbers aren’t as prevalent . Yet, for the stories of those who have taken their lives during this time, their families must be recognized and cared for!
How could these government leaders not know putting COVID positive patients in nursing homes lead to deaths ? Oh wait they definitely did and criminally cooked the books as not to be tweeted by then-President Trump, are you kidding me? By the same token, how could the CDC not work harder to combat the affects of the lockdowns they mandated on this country ?
After the horrible death of George Floyd, fighting for justice is what 2020 ended up being about. The rallying cries of ‘no justice , no peace’ rang out and then riots broke out.
No riots, no protests for the families that lost loved ones in the nursing home disaster just because the media LOVED CUOMO. Let’s protest affects of these COVID policies which also led to injustice!
