Oh my God! Y’all pray. This country cares nothing about lives.”

“Unbelievable! Please, be careful. Please, be smart. Don’t let that little $1200 burn a hole in your hand. Don’t run out in the streets and get in the crowds of people,” she continued. ” she continued.”Don’t do it y’all. Stay safe! Stay home!  It’s okay if your hair and nails aren’t done. It’s okay if you don’t have a haircut. Stay alive though!”

“I love y’all and I mean it but please Stay alive.  Be healthy! Fortify your immune system. Y’all know what’s coming next. The vaccines that will save your life! It’s next!” Campbell concluded.
