Recently, Voice of the People has been full of letters complainin­g about so-called restrictio­ns on our freedom due to COVID-19. People need to realize “freedom” is a double-edged sword.

Look at the atrocities done in America in the last five years in the name of freedom. If wearing a mask, elbow-greeting folks, or showing proof of vaccinatio­ns is depriving you of your personal freedoms, perhaps you are not considerin­g the more important freedoms, such as freedom from a deadly disease and spreading it to family members or your community.

Nova Scotia has dealt with COVID very well, but it is a worldwide pandemic and as long as it lives anywhere, it lives here.

I suggest we continue to follow protocols and quit bitchin’.
