The COVID-19 might just be the worst trauma compared to the 9/11 terrorist attack. Why? Listen to the sharp point from Actress Goldie Hawn.
Goldie Hawn has been really brave in standing up for the mental trauma towards our children.
She wrote at USA Today, “Today, we are in the midst of a national trauma that could very well surpass 9/11 and approach the heightened terror of the Cold War years, The COVID era has changed our children’s lives in far more real, tangible ways – social distancing, school closures, daily mask use.”
She added, “Kids are afraid of people, spaces, even the air around them – a level of constant fear not seen in decades, In early 2021, emergency room visits in the United States for suspected suicide attempts were 51% higher for adolescent girls and 4% higher for adolescent boys, compared with the same time period in early 2019.”
“This tells us that as a nation, we have failed our children, Helping children understand the chemical reactions that occur in their mind when they scroll through TikTok or listen to the latest horrifying statistic or headline on the evening news gives them the patience and confidence to put things in perspective, rather than fall victim to the emotions of the moment and end up in a helplessness that leads to depression and sometimes self-harm, the kind we are seeing in record numbers among children.”
Lastly, she told, “A child’s mind exposed to real-world fear, without the ability to properly process it, can go down dark passages leading to nothing less than existential dread, and we need more research, more preventative care and more early intervention and there’s still time.”
She is right, I cannot recall how people looked without masks in New York, how people walk and jog in the park without masks…this is insane!
The Daily Wire reported:
A lot of missions, right?” the actress said. “And you know, you want to put your name onto something that you believe in, but it doesn’t make a difference. And that’s the reality.”
“I stay in my lane,” Hawn continued. “The reality is, is that if we want to do anything, we want to do it for all people, not just for a group or whatever.”
“What makes polarity even more is creating teams on either side of the aisle,” she emphasized. “And I don’t think that’s what we do. I think we entertain. I think we bring awareness to people, just of their ability to laugh, to have joy, to experience it, to cry. We are emotional beings and create emotion in others. And it’s in this case, I think we’re in service.”
