Greetings internet dwellers!
We are all sad. Let's get that out of the way first. However, I don't think that anyone should be surprised that this, is the outcome. We are in the middle of a global pandemic. The numbers here in Florida, continue to not be that great. This, was inevitable.
I wanted to address a few things. The HHN fandom is a toxic community a lot of the time. I've learned to live with it. I've chronicled my misgivings with the community before. However, the nasty bickering that was going on from those who wanted the event to be cancelled, and those who didn't, was just uncalled for.
The last few months, really since this all began, if someone expressed concern about the event getting axed, they were vilified. And there were those who vilified others who wanted the event to continue. Folks, I said it earlier in the year, and I will say it again, this world doesn't need anymore hatred. There's too much of it already. I was vilified by someone I know, because I believed that this could, and should, be the outcome. This was months ago. "But things are already built," they said. Yeah, but, pandemic. Different times, different situation.
I try to live my life in a balance. I live in the dead center of the glass. And I tend to go with the flow. I prefer this outcome. I said it earlier in the year. I don't want a watered down event. And I wouldn't be upset if the event was cancelled. This, is the right decision.
I get it, we live our lives around this event. However, this isn't a time to just think about what YOU want. Health and safety, is top priority. Then there's the job loss this brings. HHN hires a lot of people, but this wasn't going to be a year, where outside forces were going to be hired in droves. At some point, we all should have asked ourselves, if it was worth it to continue. Just because you want it to continue, doesn't mean it should.
In these times, we are all reaching for some sort of normalcy. HHN, is that normal for a lot of us. Hell, just going to the parks are that sense of normalcy (even if it doesn't feel normal). The natural thing, is to blindly want it to continue. However, we have to remember, it's not that simple. It's not that cut and dry. There are many factors involved.
HHN, is not normal park operation. Things are different. Even with limited capacity, it's not run like normal operation. I don't think it would have been completely possible to pull off, without the event looking like a shell of itself. I personally would not want that. Just to have it continue blindly for a sense of normalcy, would have been the wrong move.
Hopefully, we can put most of the fuckery that is 2020 behind us, in 2021. This has been a horrible year. A very horrible year. And it continues to be a horrible year. It's a dumpster fire. The bickering from the community didn't help things either. This should be a time where we all come together. Not pull each other apart.
The future, may still be a bit uncertain. But we can help each other with that. Be compassionate. Just be a decent human being. Don't be a dick. We need each other now more than ever. And not just because HHN isn't happening. It's the right thing to do. It's the human thing to do.
So now, we all look forward to 2021. Will it be a completely new dawn? Or will it be the same view that we just missed this year? It will be an interesting time. I will continue to reveal my fictional event for the remainder of the year. I told y'all that it was meant for the purpose of HHN getting cancelled. And here we are, so, that will happen.
So, be excellent to each other. Things will get better. They have to get better. Please though, just be nice to people. That's all I ask.
Hasta La Bye-bye for now.
