Don’t Snowflake me!

The Declaration of Independence states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, . . “ Whoa, lets stop right there. The very first, and I will say the most important, unalienable right it to life. Most important because taking it away can not be undone. You can take away someone’s liberty and their ability to pursue happiness but still give it back. You take someone’s life, you can’t give it back.

So anyone that endangers another person’s life is violating that right, the most important right. You want to sky dive, or race motorcycles, or scuba dive with sharks, or any of a thousand other things that are dangerous to only you, go for it. But if what you are doing is dangerous to others, this is not okay, not right, not allowed by the U.S. constitution. Anyone yelling “I have a right” to do anything that endangers another is just plain wrong, ethically, morally, and legally.

So if that means you need to stay in except for absolute necessities, (and no, a haircut is not a necessity), to think about someone other than yourself, to keep your children home and do virtual or home school another 3 to 6 months, well just do it and stop whining. I’m tired of all the self centered snowflakes claiming everyone else is a snowflake. If you want to risk your life, I couldn’t care less, but don’t you dare risk others for your selfishness.
