For years to come

Gov. Chris Sununu has publicly said, “The state will continue to see COVID case numbers rise and fall for years to come due to the hundreds of thousands of Granite Staters who choose not to get vaccinated.”

He’s hit that tone of resignation. He’s a father of at-home children himself, so he must see it as a parent does. Life cannot return to normal, much as we wish it, wish it.

In Carter’s outlet store at Tanger Mall, they sell packets of masks for small faces. Our little children now will grow up wearing masks, because the pandemic will last for years and years.

We haven’t managed to have that pull-together culture that cooperates to get a hard job done. Contagion lasting and lasting is what a small group, not getting vaccinated, can choose for the masses.
