Time to quit the bickering

Dear Editor,

I could not believe my eyes when I read the recent letter to the editor in the March 5 Plain Dealer accusing the Democrats of politicizing the coronavirus.

That is not right. The writer's charges are totally baseless.

If this crisis is anybody's fault, it is President Trump's. A few short weeks ago he called the coverage of the looming coronavirus crisis a Democratic hoax being perpetrated by the liberal media. What a disgusting accusation to make.

You can take it how you want but I feel sorry for you, Molly B. We've simply got to love one another, work together to do what the health experts tell us to do and quit this bickering.

There is a meme of Jesus knocking on a door that I think is perfect for the situation we're all in right now. Jesus says, "Let Me in." The person inside asks, "Why?" Jesus replies, "So I can save you." The person inside asks, "From what?" Jesus answers, "From what I'm going to do to you if you don't let Me in." We should all heed this warning.

Mr. Schwering, should we be working together and quit bickering, or should we be focusing on partisan arguments over who is to "blame" for a virus? I can't tell, your letter seems to be all over the place. Maybe Jesus can help us figure it out. (The real one, not the one from your letter who sounds more like a loanshark.)

I strongly disagree. When has this happened in your lifetime? it's bad for all of us. Why put blame, and if you do why not China instead of our president? As far as I know, the words quoted in the meme in this letter aren't in any Bible i have read. What are you thinking? More panic? President Trump is doing all he can do. He is doing great.
