Biden should fix things, then quit
Hey, Joe Biden – time to go! Open the oil pipelines “you closed,” build the wall “you stopped,“ close our southern border, refund the police! Then resign from your job. Problems solved.
Vaccinations will help revive economy
Reading “Stride Toward Freedom” by Martin Luther King, Jr. about the Montgomery bus boycott for a book study, I was brought to tears reading a passage about an elderly woman.
When asked if she wanted a lift, as the buses were being boycotted and she and others had to walk or be picked up by volunteer drivers, “She waved him on saying, “I am not walking for myself. I am walking for my children and my grandchildren.”
What made me tearful was not this particular quote, but the thought that many of us today seem not to think about our children and grandchildren and what their world will be like as a result of actions we take or don’t take.
There is too much “today” thinking and “me” thinking, rather than what is good for the future and others around us.
I recently returned from a trip to Portugal, where everyone on board was vaccinated and masked and tested each day. No fussin’ and grumblin’. We all felt safe.
Everywhere, people were masked. Why? Their economy is supported by tourists. If tourists do not feel secure in coming to their country, their economy will not begin to stabilize. Just another reason to get vaccinated.
Check it out, Portugal has 80% of their population fully vaccinated.
Let’s help workers and shoppers and travelers to feel safe in our own country. How will your vaccination help our economy?
Help people feel safe participating in our economy again? Think into the future and for your grandchildren.
