NEWS

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I don’t normally comment on political or social issues.  We are all entitled to our own opinions and I have always been of a mind that unless you are asked, keep those opinions to yourself.

But we are living through extraordinary times and as one honored to represent the hard working men and women of Local 138 I would be failing my responsibilities if I didn’t make some observations about what we are all experiencing.

There is no question the COVID virus is dangerous and it has taken lives. But we are also at risk at having COVID destroy who we are as a community, a society, and a nation. It is attacking the very personal connections that allow us to celebrate births, mourn the passing of loved ones, and even create the friendships among children that will define them as adults.

Most Americans are uncomfortable with anything that restricts their liberties. It goes against everything we stand for. Government imposed quarantines, and demands we wear masks in public, make some of us wonder if this less about stopping a virus and more about a change in our society that is dark and ominous.

No one wants to see an end to this pandemic more than me but when religion, basic rights and behavior become the subject of martial law you have to ask whether we are on the verge of seeing a “cure” that is worse than the disease.  Something to think about.

Be safe by being smart.

 

Stay safe!

 

John Duffy

Business Manager & Treasurer
