Every person is entitled to do what he sees fit with his body. (Because of the vaccines) The world today is divided. that’s sad. “People are losing their jobs for seats.”

I’m aware of the implications of my decision, but this is my life. We’re in crazy times, but it’s important to remember that I did not hurt anyone or commit any crime. I support anyone who has been vaccinated. I support anyone who does what is right for them. I pray for all those who lost family and friends as a result of the Corona plague. ”
