Wednesday Reads: To Brenda

Good morning.

I have one thing to share this early September day, it is a reminder of who we are losing during this pandemic.

As you may already know, the Covid-19 numbers continue to rise:

This thread:

I know that is a long one, (25 tweets) but take the time to go through it.

With that in mind, say a prayer or save a thought…to Brenda…such a loss for her family.

The pain for this family must be shattering…like so many other needless deaths shared by numerous people across our country.

It is a legacy that must not be forgotten, and it must be laid squarely at tRump’s feet. Things could have been different. They must be different.


Wednesday Reads: Bear with me.

Jusepe de Ribera, Mary Magdalene in meditation, 1623

Today is the feast day of Mary Magdalene…Patron Saint of Women.

Moving on…

The connection between images of wrapped bodies is purposeful…it was like a bomb in my head last night.

Is it strange, there are zero public service announcements like this floating around the US?

Just a few thoughts this Sunday morning…


Wednesday Reads: Waffle House Closures!

The shit has really hit the fan!

There are 1600+ restaurants still open for business…but, it does make you think.

Here is something else to make you think:

What the hell is wrong with these people?

It bothered me to…but he was calling Dr. Fauci by his first name too. It is being disrespectful to both Doctors.

That is so true…

So, with all this stressful mess going on, I’ve been killing time coloring…

I thought I would share this with you…it seems a lot of people are finding it soothing.

Happy Color App

Anyway, stay safe and as usual, this is an open thread.


Sunday Reads: The “Twits” are strong with this “Orange” dickhead.

 

The image above is from the Instagram of one of the survivors from the Valentine’s Day murders at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. It is just one of the victim reactions to the killings…another has been the vocal call outs and public outcries from many MSDHS students. They are not taking the “thoughts and prayers” bullshit. They want action. Take a look at what these brave student survivors are doing to stand up for their murdered friends and fellow children nationwide.

 

As many have pointed out, the out spoken nature of this reaction is different from the mass murders of before. Perhaps because the media is actually paying attention to them?

I don’t know. But as you can see, tRump has been busy this morning:

Fucking hell…

 

Parkland students are fighting back…

I only want you to realize that this is the world we live in….

 

And this is the pretender to the throne, the president that we have to serve as protector in chief:
