Encinitas California is currently trending on Twitter. They are holding a protest on Pacific Coast Highway to protest the beaches and hiking trails being closed. Many of the comments are calling the protesters names and saying that they are only being allowed to protest because they are all rich and white.
I personally wish the beaches were still open, but some people who insisted on congregating in groups wrecked it for everyone else and apparently officials felt compelled to close them down. My heart is with the protestors who want their community to return to normal and be able to surf, etc., but my head says that there will never be a return to ‘normal’ and that I would not want to be out in a group right now.
I also don’t think I want to be shopping in Encinitas stores anymore – at least any time soon.
What do YOU think?
