According to this story, Richard Linderman, an ex-con who founded "Incarceration to Inspiration" to give back to the community, was an admitted anti-vaxxer. 14 members of his family became sick, including his 8-months pregnant daughter who is still in the ICU, according to the story.
“I’m trying to get the reality of this story out there for the skeptics like myself that thought they’d never get it,” Linderman said. “This past week was an eye-opener.”
Linderman explained that “all of the back and forth of the vaccine”, including the “parade on TV about getting the vaccine”, kept him from becoming vaccinated.
“What I truly didn’t know is that it would’ve kept the severity of the symptoms away and I might not be fighting for my life, so that’s on me. Once we’re able to my entire family will get vaccinated,” Linderman said.
I researched Richard a bit and discovered that he'd just gotten out of prison in 2020 after serving 7 years of an 8 year sentence. Once he got out of prison he dedicated his life to helping others, formed "Incarceration To Inspiration", and became a well respected member of the Tri-city area.
Hopefully he continues to be an inspiration by INSPIRING KNUCKLEHEADS TO GET VACCINATED.
