Last week I received a call from a woman whose grandchildren were forced to go into quarantine because of COVID-19. Although their parents had acted responsibly and gotten vaccines, the same was not true of a neighbor.

The neighbor was one of those who claimed that the pandemic was a “hoax.” Well, his child subsequently came down with COVID-19. Before you write that up to “karma,” keep in mind that this child played with countless others, putting them at risk, too!

How could anyone claiming to be an adult be so selfish as to put others at risk — including their own children — because they find COVID-19 inconvenient? It’s not a political football! It is life and death. How dare you “hoaxers” be so irresponsible.
