    Heal The Nation

    Heal The Nation

    We have been given this unusual task passed down by those who love this country. Those who gave their lives, both leaders and veterans alike. We have to commit to this important and imperative task at hand for the future of our America is waiting for us. And they should not wait any longer for action must be taken now to guarantee the future of tomorrow. Everyone must commit to this and it is symbolic of voting. Our heritage and stability depend on America being more equal and more just than ever before. And though it comes with its toils we must strive for this nobility at whatever it may cost as those who did before us. A promise to turn away from fighting and dividing to unite as one for the good of all Americans, American Democracy, present, and future. And though the road is hard, we must keep this promise. This nation has to heal to lead the world in true harmony. We have to set aside divisiveness and lay down justice in a manner worthy of its cause. Many heinous things have happened in the past and that is why we learned from them and grow from them. We have to educate ourselves and our children so they will never happen again. We must tear down the lies of history and debunk the myths of America's past. This will remove the trauma from bigotry and hatred that have scared us far too long. The sooner we deal with its hurtful and wrecking mistakes, the better our nation will be for all of us. We all need to heal from the contradictions of the past, there are things that we were taught which blind us to reality. The more we move in that direction, the deeper our brotherhood and unity will be."Asked not what your country can do for you but what you can do for your country," exclaimed John F. Kennedy. We have to look deep inside ourselves and find out who we truly are made of. We have to search the traditions and norms that our ancestors passed down to us and find out if they are truth or lies. Then we have to ask our family and friends to do the same, we must know our history then we can work on the history of our nation. It is when a person finds out their truthiness then they can lead others to the light. We can use that knowledge to open the eyes of our fellow Americans. It is a personal journey. It is not easy to discuss and be criticize for the wrongdoing of the past but it will bring about healing. The reasoning is the greatest advocate in this journey to restore order. We cannot ask a fellow citizen to answer what they have no prior knowledge on however we can make them think about their action and the root cause of their response. Our country has been known for caring about its people, respecting their decisions, and honoring their sacrifices. We must continue this motto and put action behind it. After citizens healed themselves then they can heal their government. Government is supposed to be a reflection of the people but how can it when many voices are shut out and ignored? This has got to change and we must realize that the government is the just consensus of the people. We must continually hope and believe in our country and consciously follow our leaders then as Abraham Lincoln once said, we will be "of the people, for the people, and by the people."

    What's Next?

    What's Next?

    COVID19 in Ohio due to people not social-distancing or wearing masks. So much for flattening the curve. The Governor of Ohio is closing things back up and have the Stay at Home orders in place, Their have been 9,779 new cases within the last two weeks, A 73% jump, That is crazy scary. Too many people are letting their guard down, and as a result these cases are sky rocketing. Unfortunately it is the younger ones getting infected. Ohio isn't the only state with a jump in COVID19 cases. Their have been so many jobs lost and businesses closing, Unemployment rates have gone up drastically. This has been the worst Recession we have ever seen. I honestly don't think things will get better anytime soon. Where do we go from here? No one wants to go back to lockdown, but I think it's inevitable. Even before states began to emerge from their lockdowns, Experts were already trying to figure out what cocktail of interventions that they could turn to should cases spiral again without having to rely on Stay-at-home measures. They had hoped to have more precise intervention - whether focused only on certain communities, business sectors or designed to protect the most vulnerable - could put out flare ups of cases, A way to balance preventing the spread of COVID19 from swamping health systems while still sustaining some semblance of society and economic activity. Now states are going to find out if more targeted approaches can work. If they don't, and if people don't embrace other basic precautions like masking and distancing it could require governors to reinstate even more restrictions. If communities can't control the outbreaks, What might be left is another Stay-at-Home order. The challenge is, It can take some time to know if the interventions are working, Unfortunately we don't have time, Numbers are going up. Public health experts say, It's like a piece of swiss cheese. One slice - say, suspending sporting events - prevents some transmission, but the virus still has lots of holes to pass through, meaning lots of holes for the virus to transmit. By layering slices - promoting masks no theatre or concerts, limiting group activities, dining mostly outside - The idea is to stack enough strategies to cover up the holes left by any one slice and to block the amount of virus that can get through. People in their 20's and 30's are also accounting for greater proportions of new infections, Possibly a mutation of the COVID19 disease. Leading to believe that the younger crowd aren't wearing masks or social distancing, and packing into bars, being unsafe. There is an incredible stress on the health system and they predict it to get a lot worse in the near future. There is great worry for the Fourth of July weekend, We shall see the numbers, Please stay safe, and let's all social - distance. This Coronavirus will run loose when given the chance. It's not just the lungs that this virus attacks, The virus enters the cells in your system through a process called endocytosis, In which the cell surface surrounds the virus and ushers it inside. This takes only 10 minutes to occur. Once inside, The virus uses the cell's protein - making machinery to make hundreds of copies of itself. This overwhelms the cell, and eventually causes it's death. The hostile viral takeover can cause different symptoms in different parts of the body. Damage to the cells in the Nasal epithelium can cause patients to lose their sense of smell and taste. Direct damage to cells in the heart can cause arrhythmia and cardiac dysfunction. About one-third of all patients complain of gastrointestinal symptoms. Damage to the GI Tract could explain why some patients complain of abdominal pain, diarrhea and nausea. Patients also develop acute renal failure. This could be caused by direct damage to the Kidney cells or by a hyperactive immune reaction. Also has other reactions including the Pancreas and Gallbladder. It can even cause lack of blood flow to your intestines. We definitely have a long way to go.

    Two Sides of a Coin

    Two Sides of a Coin

    There is something I have been wanting to talk about for a while now but never really knew how to put into perspective until recent events. In 2016 during Trump's election campaign his administration came to New Mexico to rally. Naturally I decided to experience it because it was something big happening in my hometown for once. First, I filmed the rallies against him, the crowds of people that included the local shirtless hippie known as "Skin Man" or "Naked Man". These rallies started peaceful, there were some younger adults revving their trucks with Mexico flags. There were thousands gathered and the energy was unlike anything I ever experienced. However, I wanted to see what both sides were like, the curious Virgo mindset I have. I wanted to know where both sides stood, what empowered them to have such overwhelming belief systems that angered them so. So I went inside of the rally to experience the other side. Inside was a MAGNETIC energy that I had never felt before, at the time it made me extremely uneasy. Their was power in the room I had never felt before. The entire crowd was energetic for the same common goal. It was unreal.

    They told us America was the Land of the Brave and Free. What they didn't tell us is that it was only really true in stories made up for Movies and TV.

    Domestic Violence. It is part of the BLM Movement too.

    I have been reading people's responses about the effect of lockdown is having on them. For the most part, you find positive stories. Stories about resilience and people discovering themselves. I believe that over the next couple of years, we are going to see a ramp-up of small business owners because of this. People are believing in themselves and others like never before. We can see it with the BLM Movement. For instance, I ordered a Malcolm X shirt 6 weeks ago. It just came today in the mail because that is how slammed these small black business owners are right now.

    A Pandemic Strikes

    A Pandemic Strikes

    As the media keeps reminding us, these are unprecedented times. 2020 started with the hopes that the new decade would bring in new, exciting changes. It was a promise of a new beginning. Then the world came to a crashing halt because of the COVID-19 pandemic. With the pandemic came change, though maybe not the change everyone was hoping for. It seemed as if overnight, the everyone was wearing face masks and quarantining themselves at home when possible. Where we used to have plenty, stores were suddenly out of toilet paper, water, cleaning supplies, etc. People are losing their jobs, business are closing, people are worried about family and friends. Our country has been divided into the essential and non-essential employees.

    COVID-19 is a class issue

    COVID-19 is a class issue

    Sidenote: This article revolves around COVID-19 in the U.K. I understand the privilege that this country has by having free healthcare. In countries like America, the issue is arguably even more grave. I don't feel like I can justifiably comment on that, having never lived without free healthcare.
