Each and every VOTE counts
As I write this blog,
America is going through one of the most challenging times in it's history.
We have all felt the effects of the Carona Virus Pandemic. Even Dagger has felt its effects. With no workshops to look forward to and visits to rehabilitation centers he has become a bit depressed. My heart breaks to see this happen. Now, don't get me wrong, we do venture into our studio to paint and that's fun. But, it can be lonely for him and me too.
Even more saddening, lives have been lost, people are alone in hospitals without loved ones to console them as they leave this world. Our doctors, nurses and health care workers have taken the place of family members....holding the hands of people they hardly know saying "Goodbye" for their family members. God bless each and every one of them. They are our true heroes. The unsung heroes and living saints of today. Many have sacrificed their lives to care for the sick and dying. Our doctors and scientists need and deserve our respect and should be listened to. I have repeatedly posted on Dagger's social media channels the need to wear a face covering, practice social distancing and wash your hands often.
These are important mitigation tools that will help us eradicate this horrible virus.
They work...The Scientific Facts tell us so!
In just two days, we have an election to determine who will sit in the Oval Office for the next four years. I am optimistic, confident and hopeful that we will see our nation unite as we had always done. When Dagger and started our mission of bringing education and community service to all people, getting political was one thing I swore I would never ever do. However, I can't help but think of how divided our nation has become. It makes me sad to think that stores and buildings are being boarded up because of the unrest that may take place after the election.
Our great Nation has and will emerge from all of this better. I truly believe this. It's important to remember that as Americans we have overcome many obstacles that have left us stronger and prouder than ever before. We are a nation where Love prevails, Kindness matters, Compassion for our fellow neighbors and strangers is what makes us the United Nations of America and
Bullying to get what one wants is not accepted.
If you haven't voted yet, VOTE. Every vote is a person. Every vote counts. To that person, their vote is a scared right.
If it takes weeks to count each and every vote
...so be it.
I pray for a peaceful transition and a new beginning for our country.
God Bless the United States of America.
Think Positive and positive things will happen.
Happy tales to you,
A Place where I can Bark, Blog and Woof a Little
