Earlier today on Twitter I asked you for your own stories of how lockdowns and travel restrictions and vaccine mandates have touched your lives.
So many of you have emailed already, and I must admit that the intimacy of these stories stuns me. Some of my closest friends are friends no longer, so I understand your sense of loss firsthand.
Still, the raw pain and in some cases open bewilderment in these stories is stunning. Marriages torn apart, grandparents who will no longer see their grandchildren, kids with special needs ruined.
Giving these a proper hearing means running them at some length, which means I can only run a couple at a time. I’ll run them from time to time, grouped by subject.
Yesterday, I asked you to send in first-person stories of the way Covid and vaccine restrictions changed your lives. The stories continue to flood in – your honesty and willingness to share these painful moments is amazing. As I mentioned last night, because of their length, I am going to group them by subject and run a few at a time.
Today: medical care, and especially the isolation and vaccine requirements that some doctors and hospitals have imposed on patients.
QUOTE: Clay Travis reacted to Wimbledon Champion Novak Djokovic not being able to play in the US Open because he is unvaccinated, saying he believes there should no longer be Covid restrictions for any athlete of any sport anywhere in the country and around the world.
The OutKick founder said, “the fact that we are not allowing Djokovic the opportunity to travel to America to play in the US Open is an absolute mockery of science, and it is indefensible.”
Clay continued, saying the joke of this whole thing is “Djokovic would be better off going down to the Southern Border and just walking across there where we don’t actually require any sort of negative test in order to enter this country.”
