Business News Update: Sunlan Lighting
Carolyn called to thank me for publishing "My Mothers Fear." She is sending copies to friends and family who are unvaccinated. Carolyn is 85. As a teen, she watched polio impact people the same way Covid is taking the lives and health of so many today.Â She witnessed so much more than I did.Â She recalls her Mother's fears; the same fears are seen today.
Tears were in her voice as she spoke of those who are dying because they are unwilling to take vaccinations, gifts of knowledge from science. Polio is no longer a major threat in the US because of high Polio vaccination rates.Â
Camille, a young adult, and I were discussing vaccinations. She told this story to explain her views. A great flood trapped a man on a roof. As a man of faith, he prayed to God to rescue him. A feeling of peace came to him. Minutes later a man in a rowboat called up to him, "there is room for you." "No thanks," he replied," God will save me." Next, a motorboat filled with people pulled up. He said he was waiting for God to rescue him. Later a helicopter hovered over him.Â Again, he declined help. Shortly, the floods took him to meet his God.
He asked his God "Why did you not save me?" The reply: "I sent 2 boats and a helicopter."
Please heed Carolyn's and Camille 's stories. We have been given the tools to protect us. Use them. Please.
