I fell for the whole thing.
I encouraged my social media followers to stay home to save lives.
I took extreme precautions to go into Aldi to grab flour for my sourdough starter.
We left the packages on the porch in case they were contaminated.
We crossed the street to avoid coming into contact with people on the sidewalks.
Church moved to our television screen. Special occasions with family were canceled. A funeral didn’t happen.
We were glued to the press conferences. We were panicked over the groceries.
Then after a month or so, we started venturing out – and we continued to do this more and more.
We started really thinking about the things we were hearing…the things we were seeing.
There was never a doubt that the virus was real. We personally knew people who were very sick…which then turned into personally knowing people who had died…
…but things didn’t add up. We started paying closer attention. We began to ask questions. We couldn’t help but ask more and more questions…
…and then we started to realize what was happening when you asked questions or pointed out discrepancies.
It wasn’t allowed.
We watched this kind of suppression continue.
Frustration grew, feeding division in families and churches.
The distortion of truth continued, destroying businesses and impacting our very way of life.
Lives unnecessarily lost to a treatable virus.
An election that turned into the crime of the century.
Sure, maybe it feels safer to stay tucked inside away from the world, but outside the doors of your home, there is a purposeful plan in motion – a plan to destroy the very fabric of our country.
We can no longer ignore the fact that there are those who take great pleasure in using crisis situations as an opportunity to implement their agenda. We are witnessing a regime who is quickly moving through a checklist of items that, if implemented, will make it impossible to recognize our once great nation – and I will not be silent.
My eyes are now wide open, and I hope yours are, too.
