    Who are these MORONS that continue to travel at the height of a pandemic? Airplanes have become Covid petri-dishes; it’s like begging to get infected. No sympathy!

    We are at a precipice, I know people are tired, but don’t do it, hang in there for the vaccine. I want to come back to Kauai so bad, I weep for my home for I truly am only happy on Kauai. I have the money and I have the time, but no. It is time to get on your big person pants and say no, it will stop now, stay home this Thanksgiving and spread the cheer not the virus.

    Have a blessed thanksgiving all
