Why would anyone feel good about that?

Those of us who would argue that it is smart for her to cancel the trip (raising hand), I can't imagine anybody "feel good about" about her making that choice. I'm not even sure what you mean by "virtuous", I don't think that has anything to do with it.

My dad is 90 and in assisted living. I will propbably get to see him on Thursday, but it will be the first time my whole family hasn't gotten together for a sit down dinner on Thanksgiving maybe in my whole 51 years on the planet (I might have missed one Thanksgiving in college). I am not "feeling good" about it. But I also wouldn't be able to live with myself if my dad caught Covid because we felt compelled to sit around the table for three hours and eat. It just isn't worth it. We had a mini Covid outbreak here in my office last week, 6 people positive, one hospitalized briefly. I tested negative yesterday, but I still wouldn't be comfortable going around him. I will just see him in the visiting area outside. It sucks. I don't think its virtuous, I don't feel good about it.

Not nearly as bad as your scenario, cause I will see him. My sisters too. But do you really think there are people who "feel good" about this dilemma? If there are, keep them away from me. I have enough nut jobs in my life.
