Thanksgiving 2020: Plenty to be thankful for!


Whilst preparing my Thanksgiving dinner, I pondered about what I was grateful for, exasperated by a network news story concerning the toll the endemic is taking on our healthcare workers and first responders.

•  I witnessed several nurses, reduced to tears as they related the horrific stress of confronting death on a daily basis, and the stress COVID-1 is placing on our healthcare services.

 •  Visuals of bodies being stacked up like cord wood in refrigerated trailer vans, unable to be sent to overloaded morgues. 

•  Danny Westneat, Seattle Times columnist, posting "Death Threats and Firings: the Pandemic's Strange Turn." He questioned  (sic) " how did we plunge from saluting healthcare workers by banging on pots and pans, to now, vilifying health departments by firing department heads. Or worse, employees receiving death threats, claiming the pandemic is over blown and will miraculously evaporate." 

Turns out, that in addition to the many blessings I've enjoyed this year, we do have a robust roster of not only dedicated healthcare and first responders,






but also an army of worker ants from truck drivers to postal employees, to grocery workers and countless others who expose themselves on a daily basis, to keep our country going!

Mary Turner in the CNN interview asked the question, "why were they — Trump —  not providing Protective Equipment (PPE) and COVID-19 testing?

Because they had more  important things to do!

The Cavalry is Coming!

The familiar sound of horses in the background signal relief is on the way!



Thank god, the nighmare is almost over!

Robert: Are you ok? I am a little less active now and have not checked your site in awhile. Our national situation has never been more dire then this week, I pray that the orange evil presence in our White House is removed this week or at least neutralized before he completes his destruction of our nation. Hope you are in good health and staying safe.
