Truth is it does not have to be so! Please please come out and do that random act of kindness towards your fellow human beings…the Government, the HSE, Doctors, Medical People and all the tiers that surround them are willing to give of their time to vaccinate you; your children. Make an effort, let’s drive this Viper called Omicron from the Island of Ireland and its siblings/progeny too. We want our lives back to normal albeit it will be a new normal where people will have indelilible memories of times not predicted but which will have the same historic impacts as the Spanish Flu and the World Wars. We must also be alert to what is called Post Pandemic Stress Disorder…this is real. It is not unlike PTSD from Vietnam or from the Troubles in the North of Ireland. It has a high financial, social, emotional, cost and we must prepare ourselves now.
