Pros and Cons: Favorite Things About Quarantine?
Sometimes, we just have to look at the silver lining in situations. That's what one member did in the Boise Bench Dwellers Facebook group. She posted:
No school shootings,
TRAFFIC is gone,
GAS is affordable,
KIDS are at home with their FAMILIES.
PARENTS are home taking care of their CHILDREN.
FAST FOOD replaced by HOME COOKED MEALS.
Hectic SCHEDULES replaced by NAPS, REST, and RELAXATION.
The AIR seems CLEANER.
The WORLD quieter.
PEOPLE are conscious about HYGIENE and HEALTH.
MONEY doesn't seem to make the WORLD GO ROUND anymore.
DOCTORS, NURSES & TEACHERS are being praised and recognized instead of athletes and celebrities.
And WE now have TIME, finally,
to STOP and SMELL the ROSES.
But, some people had a problem with that and voiced their issues in the comments of the post. She had to update her post:
UPDATE: I NEVER EVER IN MY WILDEST DREAMS KNEW WHEN TRYING TO POST A LITTLE POSITIVE HOW MUCH HATE AND VENOM WOULD SPEW FROM IT!!! THANKS FOR THOSE WHO SAW IT FOR WHAT IT WAS. Seriously considering moving cuz these are who my neighbors are? FML
I mean, yes there are positives to how people are staying home, doing only what's important, pollution is down, and things like that. Those are all great. But people are suffering as well. People are out of work. People have needs that they can't get right now.
I think she was just trying to look on the bright side of things, and I'm here for it.
