How do you go shopping now? It is 2021 and things are not the same as they were a few years ago. The topic came up when I told a friend that I was going to the store to get snacks for the family. They immediately chastised me for putting lives at risk over snacks. Let me tell you that snacks are life and I am happy to take that risk in order to live a normal life and have a happy family. I want to let you know that the need for anything outways the risk of freedom and if you need to get some top-of-the-line candy boxes to keep the peace and happiness in the craziness that is 2021.
So many people are going too far into the fear that the news has spread. We now know most of the news was lies last year. Food is essential, and life, liberty, and the pursuit of justice are as well. It is when someone goes and tells me that any kind of grocery shopping is not essential that I must protest. I live in the United States due to freedom and going shopping is part of that. I take a massive risk of driving to the store. The risk of getting into a crash is always there and that is higher than any other health risk in the world. I say this to let people know that they are at risk of dying every day. It is a normal thing and we all have most likely been in a car wreck or no someone who has died from one. No one ever says that we risk our lives simply driving every day but we do.
No one should ration food and that just blows my mind. If your family is going crazy from being locked inside together going on a year then anything to save your sanity is essential. That is how I look at many things these days. It is no one’s right to tell you what food is good and what is not. That is part of why we live in this country and that is the freedom that it brings. Yes, that even comes down to the candy boxes we choose when walking down that lovely aisle. So indeed don’t let anyone tell you what food is essential or even come close to taking away the choice as to that. It could mean later on that some choices for food for your children may be limited. The FDA says aspartame and corn syrup are healthy. While so many studies show they are the worst things we consume daily.
Shopping should be simple and fun. It should be allowed anytime and there is no reason to ever tell someone not to go. The right to freedom is involved and even in 20201when pandemics that don’t seem to be causing much harm are happening essentially has taken a different turn. So do not fret, but go out and be free. Enjoy your amazing groceries and don’t be afraid of news that is proven to be false every day. We know now that the world is safe and that most of the lies are simply that, lies. So enjoy living and go shopping without fear.
