When you get sick from Covid 19…

So when you really think about…is it worth it? Please read! Seems fairly accurate.

When you get sick from the Covid 19 virus, you first experience a constant cough, loss of taste, and a fever. Your head aches, you’re hot, you have chills, and you have an unrelenting fever. Your fever is so high and consistent, Tylenol offers little relief. Your body aches in every joint, and the lethargy, lost of taste and sore throat make eating unbearable. This may even feel like the typical flu, except it doesn’t get better. It gets worse. As the virus takes over your body, you began to have shortness of breath. You realize that you’re breathing slowly, and the breathes are hard, heavy, like you have a sponge stuck in your throat and nose. When you try to fill your lungs with air, you cannot. And that scares you. Your lungs are on fire with each inhale, and paired with the coughs, it’s almost impossible to breath. With every breath, your chest, arms, back, fingers, toes, everything…hurts. You are terrified now. So, you go to the hospital, and no one can go in with you. They’re not allowed in. So you go in by yourself, sick, and scared. The medical team gives you oxygen, and it burns the entrance to your nose. You are now so sick that even the forced oxygen is no relief. So a team of medical professionals in protective gear (you can hardly make out their faces) enter your isolated room, and put a couple of half-inch tubes down your throat to get past the bronchi and into your lungs. They are working to save your life. You are now on an artificial respirator, because you can no longer breathe on your own. To be intubated is painful, and if you’re conscious, you will not be able to speak or eat. You will be alone. With no family, friends, loved ones…no one. You’ve become a risk to others because if around, you’d infect them with the same thing that is killing you. But understand, it’s no party for those who love you, either. Because of you, they get to be at home, without you there, scared, and in constant worry about you. And as you lay in your hospital bed, feeling so alone, you begin to cry, and you realize that you’re afraid of dying. You wonder why God is doing this to you, but then you remember that “thing” you just had to attend last week. All those events, with all those people, that beautiful weather, the beach, and you remember how many people you kissed or hugged or took pics with. It was so much fun, right? It seemed harmless. No one there was sick…or were they? It is then that you’ll wish you hadn’t gone out, hadn’t risked your life, you’ll even hope that you havent infected others, and THIS IS WHEN YOU WILL UNDERSTAND WHY THEY TOLD YOU TO STAY AT HOME. 😐

Statement from Radio One Raleigh

Tickets will be honored at the rescheduled date

(RALEIGH, NC) – Radio One Raleigh announced today that its annual Women’s Empowerment event scheduled for April 25 at PNC Arena has been postponed.

Statement from Radio One Raleigh

The decision was made after consultations with long-time venue partner PNC Arena, as well as the State of North Carolina and Wake County. It demonstrates the company’s efforts to join government officials, healthcare professionals, and business leaders who are working to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 virus and ensure the safety and well-being of its sponsors, staff and event attendees.

“Our intent is to do our part to ‘flatten the curve,’” said Vice President and General Manager Gary Weiss. “While the decision to reschedule is an incredibly difficult one, we feel it is in the best interest of our sponsors, vendors, staff and ticket holders and is our contribution to the safety and well-being of all. We are working to secure a new date in July or possibly August of this year.”

Several headliners including actress and producer Angela Bassett, actor and R&B sensation Tyrese and the Clark Sisters were among the performers scheduled to appear at Women’s Empowerment 2020. There is no guarantee that their schedule’s will permit their participation for the future date, but the company is committed to bringing the same caliber of talent as it has every year for the past 25 years.

We are encouraging all ticket holders to please hold on to their tickets until the new date is announced. Radio One Raleigh will provide updates about the event schedule, performers and sponsorship as it becomes available.
