The leaves are changing to golden yellows and vibrant reds and rich rusts that create a masterpiece of nature’s beauty. The grass is in its prime growing season and is green and lush. Summer flowers are bursting with beauty and are determined to show that an oncoming frost would be unfortunate. The air is clear and crisp and delicious to inhale. Our brothers, the squirrels, are working overtime harvesting all the nuts they can find as the trees are unloading their crop. Pumpkins and squash are bursting with flavor and apples are falling to the ground. What a time of year as nature gives us its bounty and shows us what it is capable of. We are fortunate that the coronavirus doesn’t affect our food. We need to be very careful during this time, especially Survivors. Some of us have a compromised immune system and need to listen to doctors. They are speaking from scientific facts and not some form of political convenience. Many of our politicians have been derelict in their obligation to us as citizens of our great country. By now we should have good facial coverings that all citizens are required to use and judicious re-opening of business and commerce so as not to ignite a surge of even more infections or more cases of coronavirus. By now, we should all know what we, as good citizens need to do:· Social Distancing· Good Handwashing · Wear Masks· Stay away from Large Crowds I know it’s been a difficult time for all of us. We have had to change our way of life in many ways. But, hopefully, at the end of this journey, we will be healthy and ready to resume our normal activities. Many of you have stated that, although working from home was nice, at first, you miss the office atmosphere. The lack of social contact can cause serious mental stress, but the goal is to stay safe, protect yourself and others. No one is immune to coronavirus. Even the President has it. Let the lesson be learned-face masks can make the difference. Survivors also need to pay attention to what is going on politically. No matter your party affiliation, the facts are right in front of you. As a Survivor, you have a pre-existing condition. Under the Affordable Care Act, you have protection from insurance companies who want to deny you coverage, based on your pre-existing condition. The President, who now has a pre-existing condition, has the Affordable Care Act before the Supreme Court to get rid of it. That hearing is a week after the election and you could lose all your protections if the Affordable Care Act is struck down. So as you protect yourself physically from the coronavirus, be aware that millions of us can lose our health care. What can we do? We can call our Congressman or Woman and our Senators. But the most important thing we can do is VOTE. If you are confused by the issues look at it this way. One side wants to eliminate the existing health care laws in this nation. The other side wants to enhance and improve existing health care laws.
Which side are you on? Vote accordingly.
