vs what happened way back in your days of hunger and sorrowful experience, Salty.
trouble is, old girl, it was not even a generation ago. and yes it was so sorrowful I almost cried when I first thought the school lunches were cut immediately. no child in America should have to sit in a class as one of 15-18 kids who are eating that day and had breakfast while 10-15 of the rest of them are asleep at their desk dreaming of food.
as for the claim it can never b that again:

But because it's possible to get reinfected and COVID-19 can cause severe medical complications, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that people who have already had COVID-19 get a COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, COVID-19 vaccination might offer better protection than getting sick with COVID-19.Nov 5, 2021
