Be More Than Safe
After about a year of enduring the plandemic* of COVID-19, I noticed that people started concluding conversations by saying, "Stay safe." Regardless of what our circumstances truly are, I feel this sweet but silly supplication is a mistake. Doomsday is not nigh. So I have launched a one old woman campaign of getting people to say a cheery "Stay happy!" instead. So far I have influenced about forty people.
I say something like this with an enticing laugh: "Oooh, I noticed that all you young people are saying stay safe but I think you can be much more optimistic than that. Say stay happy instead! Can you do that?" I always get a laugh in return. No one should have to go though their day feeling that the person next to them might drop dead at any moment. This plandemic has been very cruel to the good people of the world.
*According to Wikipedia, "Plandemic is a 2020 conspiracy theory video and film produced by Mikki Willis which promotes misinformation about the COVID-19 pandemic." Time will tell.
Be More Than Safe — Be Happy
