This is no time to give up and start social gatherings

Original post made by Alejandra , Fairmeadow School, on Mar 27, 2020

I was shocked by the party at my neighbor's backyard yesterday evening. This is no time to feel we are exceptions to the rule. The foolishness of a citizen might cause the disease of death of others.

After calling the police, I was wondering what sort of very high fine someone should pay for putting in danger our community. Does a $10000 might discourage people throwing parties or gathering in neighborhoods right now? The money can be donated to our hospitals.

It is very frustrating that families with children and teenagers, don't seem to understand the severity of this Public Health Crisis.
