We are not ready

Lots of things get exposed in emergency situations. A pandemic is something were not prepared for ourselves and the supporting industries for these events aren’t prepared.

First we are a selfish people. We will not do what is needed for the safety of each other. That is proven out every day on our highways. Second our medical profession doesn’t have the number of people or resources to handle large scale events. I seriously hope this isn’t as serious as it appears now but I don’t have that sense right now.

I could go on ringing the panic bell but we will see what the future brings soon enough. So onto enjoying this fine day. The last few minutes is about all the time I’ve had to savor the day. More doctors appointments and work with a few hours sleep squeezed in filled that rest of the hours.

In another 6 hours I’ll be free from the job that pays the bills and into a great weekend. It’s a packed one and filled with great times ahead. I can’t wait to raise my camera to my eyes.


Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Sometimes when you work someplace for a very long time the building becomes a home. I guess that is why it gets emotional when they are torn down.
  • I have not tried the new Coke Energy but I hear it calling my name.
  • I hate seeing nice people taken advantage of. And it hardens me against those who do.
  • I’m getting an early start on taking my filter off even though I’m not an old man yet.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
