It is no secret COVID-19 has turned all our lives around, from the Toilet Paper
Madness, the working at home necessity, schooling our children from home, social
distancing and wearing masks and gloves where ever we go.
Our government doesn’t get it, we did learn from our mistake from the 2008-
2009 Recession. We adapted, we thrived, we made our life better. No one man
or woman can do this alone. No one man or woman can take credit for all our
hard work and achievement. It is foolish, it is egotistical and totally insane.
40,000 plus life has been lost, that is not acceptable. There is no cure. There isn’t any type of medicine to help you get over this virus. We are flying blind here.
Personally, I lost a great friend, my husband lost a family member. The losses are great, they are painful, they are real. I have to protect my elderly Mom, my handicapped son, my daughter who has a respiratory condition.
We all work paycheck to paycheck and we all need to go back to work, but we also need to feel safe, we need the assurance of equality and we need great leadership to survive.
We are all in this together. The Coronavirus doesn’t discriminate. There is No Red or Blue states. There is only “WE”.
Call your governor, your congressman, your representative, your local official, tell them without us “wethe people” there isn’t anything to govern.

Election 2016 – The second presidential debate was last night. As we all know, while Hillary Clinton kept her cool and stayed focus on the issues that matter to the American Public. Donald Trump did not disappoint us with his typical ranting and putting the blame on everyone that can hold a candle. He is a real bully. He even disagrees with his own running Vice-President. This election is about Donald Trump being #1. He wants to win for himself. The Republican are at arm wits trying desperately to find a safe heaven with their candidate. In my book, Clinton is 2-0 with this big win again.
Hurricane Matthew – This was a very nasty storm. The damage and devastation it caused, hasn’t been seen in decades. I can personally tell you, we were without power. It was an ordeal to get fuel, supplies. My back yard is in shambles. My dog was terrified. My children were scared. We had no means of communication with the outside world since everything we own is run on power. We were without power for 2 a day and what save us was we are close to City Hall and I guess we are in the same grind as them. But when we lost the internet, for 2 1/2 days. If you are like me, who works using the internet this was a downpour. We give thanks, to the utilities and Brighthouse for the heroic tireless effort to restored everyone life back to normal. For those who has lost their home, our prayers are with you. Just remember, you can always rebuild, a lost life is worst.
Give to the Red Cross for the Hurricane Matthew’s Victims
“Hi everyone, we made it okay thru the hurricane. We lost power for 1/2 a day and we currently have no internet service from Bright House. Some of our neighbors weren’t so lucky and are expirencing extensive property damage.
Just for now keep everyone in our prayers. The poor American will be back hopefully by the end of the week.”
