Sparky, rest assured that I am absolutely flabbergasted at people, members, being totally negative about President Doctor Nelson's example and statement.  For crying out loud.  And the misinformation! Sorry I was too cryptic. 

Some people are pigs.  That is my opinion.   My country has demonstrated their piggishness last weekend.

I cannot wait to have the vaccine and get my life back.

On top of our Boy being driven nearly to suicide and the sharp rise in depression,  and so many deaths, and the cratering world economy,  etc,etc,etc, the wonderful example of President Nelson should have been a beacon of hope and trust. 
It was for me.  There might be an end to this tunnel.

PS Boy could use more than Mama prayers, if you all can manage it.

I have been trying to help my parents get scheduled. They are in high risk groups and are currently scheduled way out in late March. I check frequently, and every time I find that multiple time slots have opened up, they are filled before I can finish clicking on it. It seems like a similar experience trying to buy concert tickets when a bot is gobbling them up before anyone else can get them. Except there isn't a bot doing this. People really want the vaccine, and the availability really is limited.

I guess some of these folks will not be raising their hands the next time they are asked to sustain the Prophet & local leaders, eh?  :(

My health provider is Kaiser, & in our area, priority is being given to health care workers & age 75+. I'm not in one one of those groups. Being 60+, my turn will eventually come up, & depending on when that happens & what our overall conditions are like, I may wait a few weeks before scheduling. There will be someone who needs it more. I'm in good health, don't have an outside job, & unlike too many folks even in "shutdown California," I'm being strictly scrupulous about all the precautions. So I'm at pretty low risk.

People need to keep in mind that just because they've been vaccinated doesn't guarantee they are totally immune from picking up the virus, getting sick, or unknowingly sharing it with others.

Dyanny,  how terrible that those people got thr stake president to remove his post..so tired of those forces winning! :(
I have a friend who posted a virtual event about racism, something usually at the visitors center,  and someone complaining about politics got it removed < friend deleted her post> !

Really telling on yourself when you think people standing against racism is a political attack on you.

I'm pretty sure she's upset at people's response to the prophet.

Jana, I'm confused by your post. Are you upset that the prophet got the vaccine? For some reason I thought you were for the vaccine. <shrug>

I’m sorry to hear that, Jana. 
Satan seems to be loosened and is spreading anger and hatred everywhere. There is so much of it, it doesn’t surprise me when I read of things happening as you described in stoic Netherlands and when members of the church erupt in it, as Dyany described. We are human and unless we watch ourselves carefully, it is easy to get caught up in the anger. So easy, especially if we think we are righteousness in our emotions.

I guess I am  still young enough to be shocked. Our sustained prophet? a world known and respected doctor?  yikes. the world is worse than I thought.
My country has turned into idiots. 

The lockdown here  is not working as planned.  Now we have a 2100 curfew with reasonable exceptions. 
Several locations erupted into riots, cars burned, looting, and can you feature this... a hospital came under attack and  a testing centre got burnt.
THIS is staid, practical, stoic, NETHERLANDS.  I am flabbergasted.  The PM is livid. The mayors are out for blood.
The aforesaid hospital has armed security now, and the police are out in force on  horses, scooter, and bicycles because many city centres are pedestrian and cars do not do well.

On the other hand dismayed distraught citizens were out voluntarily cleaning up the mess today.
Attacking a hospital when our medical  folk are so overwhelmed and traumatized. incredible.

Some members are pretty thoroughly entrenched in the conspiracy theories.   And others think because they haven't gotten sick yet and none of their regular contacts have, that they needn't worry about the virus risks.

A relatively local stake president shared the post of the prophet getting the vaccine to his stake's facebook page, and urged the members to follow the prophet and get the vaccine as soon as possible.
The post was met with such vitriol and hate and contention that he deleted it.

I double-dare them to write to President Nelson & say the same things.

People will always take what prophets say and make it palatable for themselves.
