COVID sucks. The fact that its taken lives, ruined lives, and even put off living for many really sucks.

COVID continues to change and end lives, and it's still around, rearing its ugly head.

Many have been vaccinated, while others continue to hold out - for whatever reason.

I recently came across an argument for vaccination that really made an impact on me. Perhaps it will make a similar impact on you.

The argument is a social media post from Dave Simonett from the band Trampled by Turtles.

Honesty, I never heard of the band and figured it was some sort of hard rock or punk band.

I was wrong.

Trampled by Turtles is a Bluegrass/Folk Rock band. They are from Minnesota, and they've been around for a while. They're actually quite good! There's a video of one of their performances below.

Simonett's post really explains why the band needs its fans to vaccinate if they're coming to their shows. He says:

"Everyone in our business was just out of work for a long time.....If people start getting COVID at our concerts, it all gets shut down for us again.....There are a lot of people that depend on these shows for their living......"

A good, powerful argument:



Some good words from an unlikely place.
