Controversy is unavoidable in crazy times.
Representative John Lewis of Georgia is a titan in the cause of civil rights, gay rights and human rights. Mr. passed away on July 17th, 2020 after a battle with cancer. His life was dedicated to making the world a better place for everyone. In every sense of the word he was a patriot. Thank you good sir for all the good trouble you caused in changing the world for many. You did things for others at your own peril and safety. Your legacy will be one celebrated in history and memory. Rest in power Mr. Lewis.
When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.John Lewis
This Shrek themed meme has all sorts of truth in it. Masks, schools, elections and Hamilton are the leading topics of conversation and news in many of our social feeds. I know many folks who have logged off because of the chaos and negativity. There is a balance somewhere between being informed and preserving sanity.
Allow me to be serious for a minute or a little more. Over 90,000 people in this country and 317,000 around the world have died from COVID-19. Now is not the time to have strange conspiracy theories or to play the blame game. Energy would best be used in finding a cure for this deadly virus.
This pandemic has already changed the course of history forever and we have to remain focused on preventing people from getting the virus and caring for those who are sick with it. Deaths along with job losses have impacted people more than anything else in recent memory.
Spreading false information is going to get people more people killed. It would be awful to see another spike in cases and deaths. People have to behave, do their parts, and be true neighbors so that everyone will be safe.
Rumor has it that it’s the twenty-first century, let us act like it.
I want to offer appreciation to local news journalists who are keeping us informed about what is going on in our backyards during these days of Coronavirus and now tornadoes and severe weather. Everywhere there is local information that needs to be reported. The news in your area matters and can impact your life in a profound way. These reporters really do deserve our thanks.
Fake news comes from people who don’t know what they are doing or talking about. Also, those who ignore expert advice and science. Just saying.
To all my California friends stay safe during this emergency. Wildfires are nothing to take lightly. Keep us posted as to your situation.
Discrimination is wrong. It is something that speaks to the worst in people and organizations. When it comes to making a living being LGBTQ folks should not be afraid of losing their rights to life, liberty and happiness. We are in the 21st century and the fact that discrimination is a problem for so many is quite sad. I hope for the very best today as the US Supreme Court decides some issues regarding LGBTQ discrimination. It’s time freedom is open for all.
