Came across this on my local NextDoor forum. Edited to protect identities.
It’s the first Tuesday of April. It’s a normal occurrence monthly in Illinois. We’re all used to it.
So many people are living in fear that they have forgotten normal life (or have been completely tuned out of their surroundings for a long period of time). If you don’t see this as a problem, you are part of the problem. Fear causes people to do and support things they normally wouldn’t, such as ratting our neighbors for “breaking the rules” or agreeing with draconian enforcement of temporary laws. Fear is a powerful weapon. Don’t succumb to fear and do your best to go about your daily lives (or at least wake up and pay attention to what’s going on around you and don’t rely on TV for everything).
