We had just gotten on a company wide video conference hosted out of Salt Lake CIty this morning when that earthquake hit..obviously they cancelled the remainder of the conference, but it was pretty surreal.

Hey there

Those that know me, understand that I don't talk politics, or religious issues either here on the board or on the Face Book thingy....but in light of current events I find myself compelled to rant a little, please forgive my wordyness

So it has come down to this in our country. We are fighting over Toilet paper, and food and water, after dismissing the dire warnings of an impending pandemic, It can’t happen here, we are the mighty and the leaders of the free world ( national ego?). It is this mindset that has brought us where we are today.

We have stood on the shoulders of the Greatest generation and did wondrous things. We cured Polio, and went into space, we figured out how to transplant hearts and improve the quality of life, and we prospered. We got into the mind set that we were untouchable/invincible. The next generations rode on the coat tails of those who had gone before them and took their pleasures in prosperity and their personal agendas.

We forgot our past…the 1918 flu pandemic that Killed Millions world wide and over ½ million in the United states…When I lived in Butte Montana, I used to walk my dog (Mz Ashley) at the old cemetery and was astounded by the number of head stones from 1918. You could see a plot where a whole family was buried mom, dad and 4 kids, all who died with in weeks of each other, or a plot where five children from one family were all buried together in one grave…From that pandemic our medical/scientific community worked tirelessly to find a cure and develop a better understanding on how to confront similar out breaks. But we have forgotten. We let our national ego, blind us to the dire consequences that a pandemic outbreak could mean to our wellbeing and our way of life. To our families and our economy.

But here we are. Now is not the time to fix blame, historians will do that for us. Our job now is to do all that we can to stem the tide. To do the research to find a cure. To gear up the industrial complex, to build and, get into place medical equipment and drugs that will help ease those who are suffering and take the pressure off our medical professionals. Time to persevere.
Its time to let go of the “what’s in it for me, ‘me first attitude’ and realize that we are all in this together and we need to help and support, each other, and if that means self Isolation and not hoarding, so be it. For if we don’t then those same historians will not remember us for all our great national achievements but for how we failed as humans…..
I would rather we be overly cautious and suffer some discomfort and survive, than to be careless and the end results be catastrophic for us all …..end rant....I feel better thank you....

Grace, peace, and wash yer hands..

Ben
