The impacts of 911 are still being felt, yet others today are doing far worse damage and causing more deaths in the name of political ideology than the carnage caused by the attacks on September 11, 2001.  

First, the insurrectionists on January 6, but instead of saying never forget this seditious act. Let us ask ourselves why we’re not the unified humanity we need to be in order to prevent another blight on history?

VAX And Masks PLEASE

Everyone knows vaccines and masks reduce the spread of the global pandemic, so why are so many people refusing to participate?

Most reasonable folks may soon will begin demonstrations Monday in the hopes that it will serve to of pressure public safety  administrators to institute mask and vaccine mandates.

The crazy days of Autumn are here and quickly growing, while some #Republicans keep trying while innocent Americans keep dying.

Do we know who is paying the tab for others to take the lead in a @GOP race to destroy the fiber of #USA Democracy? The larger question is why and who is forcing these insane #Republicans who appear intent in killing innocent #Americans on their fast lane to the bottom?

It’s another dangerous lie that kids don’t catch #COVID. Our school teachers are so worried why have you told them to scrap bubbles, mask-wearing, and social distancing when cases of the delta variant are at their peak. Why can’t our kids get vaccinated?

Those who are unwilling to sacrifice a small part of their quality of life and daily comforts for the good of our country seem to be making the loudest noise right now. But the statistics show that they have never been in the majority.

The folks who are fully vaccinated,may be excited about gathering with their family and friends again. They might even be planning a vacation. But there are still nagging questions about how long protection from the coronavirus vaccines will last. For instance, will your shot wear off gradually or suddenly? Will you need a booster

It was going to be a new beginning with relative normalcy. However, it turned into a politicized, anxiety-provoking experience.

Breakthrough infections. Increased transmission. New mask recommendations and mandates. The #Delta variant is fueling #COVID-19 cases across the world and raising questions about what this all means for the course of the pandemic. It was first detected in India in March, and it now accounts for more than 93 percent of sequenced coronavirus cases in the USA.

Every one of us holds the power to heal. To have a real impact on the health of the people around you. We all do it daily.

This is the real reason why modern medicine is ripe for a change in perspective. Because each of us is a human being in search of kindness and understanding. Our body, mind, and spirits are one and the same.

At some point #USA voters will have to chose between public health and their quality of life or the politics of hate and total denial.

As the GOP appears to be leading the nation into dangerous territory that should alarm Americans about the quality of health care, and the lack of compassion for all citizens, there are precautions that could be immediately taken including encouraging folks to get vaccinated, asking people to wear masks, and allowing schools to mandate masks, which is not the current state of play in #Republican led regions.
