“Covid 19” The Corona Virus….according to the CDC, WHO and Health professionals…guidelines

-What is COVID 19?

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is an infectious disease caused by a new virus.
The disease causes respiratory illness such as a cough, fever, and in more severe cases, difficulty breathing. You can protect yourself by washing your hands frequently, avoiding touching your face, and avoiding close OR any contact with people who seem sick or are sick.

-How it spreads?
Coronavirus disease spreads primarily through contact with an infected person when they cough or sneeze. It also spreads when a person touches a surface or object that has the virus on it, then touches their eyes, nose, or mouth.

-How can you protect yourself and others?

You can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:
Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub. Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze. Avoid close contact (6+ feet) or more from everyone!
Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel sick.
Please, Do NOT touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean

 

‘There’s currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and Tests are in limited supply for those considered high risk……elderly and/or those whom are immunocompromised.”

Please take care of yourselves and your loved ones!!!!

“Much of my life had been devoted to trying not to cry in front of people who loved me…..You clench your teeth. You look up. You tell yourself that if they see you cry, it will hurt them, and you will be nothing but a Sadness in their lives, and you must not become a mere sadness, so you will not cry, and you say all of this to yourself while looking up at the ceiling, and then you swallow even though your throat does not want to close and you look at the person who loves you and smile.” 

― John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

… a few quotes in celebration of Maya Angelou’s Birthday….

“When you know you are of worth — not asking it but knowing it — you walk into a room with a particular power. When you know you are of worth, you don’t have to raise your voice. You don’t have to become rude. You don’t have to become vulgar. You just are, and you are like the sky is, as the air is, the same way water is wet.”
-MayaAngelou-

“I’m convinced of this: Good done anywhere is good done everywhere. For a change, start by speaking to people rather than walking by them like they’re stones that don’t matter. As long as you’re breathing, it’s never too late to do some good.”
-MayaAngelou-

“We, this people, on a small and lonely planet
Traveling through casual space
Past aloof stars, across the way of indifferent suns
To a destination where all signs tell us
It is possible and imperative that we learn
A brave and startling truth.”
-Maya Angelou-

“You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.”
-Maya Angelou-

“My great hope is to laugh as much as I cry; to get my work done and try to love somebody and have the courage to accept the love in return.”
-Maya Angelou-

“I can be changed by what happens to me. But I refuse to be reduced by it.”
– Maya Angelou-

“Nothing can dim the light which shines from within.”
– Maya Angelou-

“Leaving behind nights of terror and fear
I rise
Into a daybreak that’s wondrously clear
I rise
Bringing the gifts that my ancestors gave,
I am the dream and the hope of the slave.
I rise
I rise
I rise.”
-MayaAngelou-

 

Love should be the weapon of choice! 


“Peace & Joy are not circumstantial!” and at times such as these, hopelessness may try to afflict our spirit. It physically hurts me to see hate & evil incarnate in my fellow human RACE; not only in their despicable behavior towards each other, but in words shared both written & verbally expressed. I trust God is still in control and he gave us “Free Will” to act and say as we choose. God isn’t doing this, We-Us humankind are doing this. For everything we say & everything do, we will be held accountable for!!! There will always be consequences to be paid for our actions; positive or negative, but consequences nonetheless. 

Say NO to hate! Say NO to violence! We are ALL children of God! And if you call yourself a Christian, please ask yourself…. What Would Jesus Do? Please be a conduit of peace, kindness & of LOVE! Act instead of talking & perpetuating so much hate. Educate yourself and better society with knowledge, understanding & respect. Love is the only weapon we should use against anyone! God is still God no matter what happens. Love is still Love no matter how much hate is generated out there. We are all still creation of God; Created in his image & for his honor & glory! I pray we find a sliver of hope before hate consumes humanity- or whatever is left of it!!! God have mercy!!!

I refuse to choose any side in which hate & violence is the goal to reach in order to gain attention to a plea. I refuse to side with any airs of supremacy and/or airs of royalty. God is the ONLY King & sovereign. No ONE has the right to take other lives. Our time is so limited on this earth, and we spend it hating each other or trying to fit in. How pitiful we’ve become. Instead of loving, respecting & celebrating our differences we torn each other down. 

We need LOVE! We need Kindness! We need GOD!!!!
