This is a station editorial, I'm Randal J. Miller, station president. Well, it's spring...the birds are singing, the buds are popping on the trees, the tractors are in the field preparing the seed bed for planting...it's an encouraging time of year. It feels good. Warmer weather. Happier faces. Upbeat attitudes.
What a difference a year makes!
Only this year, we have happier faces and upbeat attitudes for one more reason: There's light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel with 3 different vaccines available for pretty much all adults that want it.
I've had my first Pfizer shot, and will get my second. The older you are, or those with health problems, the more you need it.
I've heard some talk from a few people that say "I've decided NOT to get it."
Before you make that decision a hard and fast one, think about your family. Your friends. Those you go to work or church with. Think about all these people BEFORE thinking about yourself.
Don't be one of those that could, God forbid, get the disease. No matter what you're age, it isn't pretty. It affect everyone in different ways.
I'm almost 66 years old. My wife and I both decided we were better off to get it, than not to get it. I want to still be around for my 4 grandchildren, 2 of which are a LONG way from their high school graduation.
So, before you say "I'm NOT getting the vaccine", think about your family, your friends, those you are around every day. Think about THEM before thinking of yourself.
Then, make the RIGHT decision. Get the shot. Protect yourself and know that you're doing something good for all of us.
