An opinion piece from “The Atlantic” seeks to request what they label as a “Pandemic Amnesty”. This request is essentially about asking people who were harmed by ridiculous virus policies to forgive those who harmed them. This most likely includes everyone from the Federal Government down to regular people who screamed at their neighbors over masking and social distancing.
They want this forgiveness to happen so that everyone can move on and move forward with their lives in a meaningful and productive way. There is, of course, just one problem with this. The mandates and rules and other inane restrictions placed upon the American people and the world have yet to be fully realized.
So much damage happened as a result of the pandemic that it may not be known for many generations to come. Children were harmed by this although they were never at risk for the virus. It is too soon to ask for forgiveness. Not only is it too soon, but it may also simply be too arrogant and absurd of a thing to have the nerve to request.
