I have been wearing a mask in stores since March when this whole thing went down. I’m not sure how being considerate to others for the common good is now being mocked by some who are calling it “living in fear”, but it needs to stop....
When I wear a mask over my nose and mouth in public and in the stores/Supermarkets/Pharmacies/Offices - I want you to know the following:
📷 I'm educated enough to know that I could be asymptomatic and still give you the virus.
📷 No, I don't "live in fear" of the virus; I just want to be part of the solution, not the problem.
📷 I don't feel like the "government controls me". I feel like I'm an adult contributing to the security in our society and I want to teach others the same.
📷 If we could all live with the consideration of others in mind, the whole world would be a much better place.
📷 Wearing a mask doesn't make me weak, scared, stupid or even "controlled". It makes me caring and responsible.
📷 When you think about your appearance, discomfort, or other people's opinion of you, imagine a loved one - a child, father, mother, grandparent, aunt, uncle or even a stranger - placed on a ventilator, alone without you or any family member allowed at their bedside.....Ask yourself if you could have helped them a little by wearing a mask.
I copied and posted......Who else will do the same?

Happy Father's Day to All Fathers:

Today, we celebrate the fathers, father-figures and single mothers who are both mothers & fathers in our lives. The role of Dads as a parent is the most important role models for children. Dads protect us, guide us, care for us and love us. Our father-figures lead us to adulthood. They help us realize our dreams, and turn them into a reality. We are so grateful to all the fathers and father-figures who exemplify these qualities. It is never too late to be a role model for youngsters, this will help them to be a better parent when the time comes!

The first Father's Day was celebrated in Spokane, Washington in 1910, in honor of William Jackson Smart, a single parent and Civil War veteran. Smart raised six children by himself. His daughter, Sonora Smart Dodd, told her pastor after hearing a Mother's Day sermon, that fathers should have a similar holiday.

It took decades for the holiday to receive the public support that it deserves, but in 1972 it was made a permanent national holiday. Today, we celebrate father's day the third Sunday of June each year.

It’s been three decades already since Trinidad & Tobago-born national, Jean P. Alexander had the vision to co-found the Caribbean American Center of New York, (CACNY), based on her own life experiences as a new immigrant after arriving in 1971.

Alexander says she is still stunned at the rapid passage of time and cannot believe it’s been 30 years already. This September, in honor of the 30th anniversary of CACNY, the organization’s Board will celebrate 2017 with their 6th Role Models of Distinction Awards & Scholarship Benefit Gala, while also putting the spotlight on its scholarship and mentoring program and several top executives and role models citywide.

How to treat Ulcer with unripe raw Paw Paw

Get raw pawpaw and wash it. It must be raw, not ripe

Do not peel it and do not remove the seeds.

After washing the outside neatly, slice it without peeling it into small small pieces. The cutting should be small like sugar cubes.

Put all the small pieces of the raw pawpaw into any clean container.

Fill the container with water to stop at the same point the sliced pawpaw stopped.

Leave the pawpaw in the water for four days. For example if u soak it on a Monday, count Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be the fourth day.

On the Fourth day, the water will be looking white in colour. Sieve it and throw away the pawpaw and the water becomes your cure for ulcer.

DOSAGE: drink half a glass of the pawpaw water every morning, afternoon and evening. You will no longer feel those ulcer pains because it will heal the wounds inside that are causing the pain.

This morning, afternoon and evening drinking of the pawpaw water can continue for weeks and months depending on how severe the ulcer is. It is not relief. It is a cure.

Additional note: an ulcer is an internal wound usually in the stomach or intestines.
Common causes of ulcer are infection with the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and long-term use of aspirin and certain other painkillers, such as ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin, others) and naproxen sodium (Aleve, Anaprox, others). Stress and spicy foods do not cause peptic ulcers. However, they can make your symptoms worse.

Pls avoid taking strong pain killers without prescription. If you take time to read the side effects you will see that the drugs for pain relief cause ulcer or wounds in the body.

This treatment mentioned is not a reason not to go to hospital, because not all internal pains are ulcers.

This is the first time I am seeing this and I can't believe this man can lie so much!

Republican gubernatorial candidate Brian Kemp tried accusing Stacey Abrams of telling 'illegals' to vote for her. Her response was brilliant.

Many Indian Trinidadians have this Saigan or Moringa Tree in their yards and use the leaves and pods regularly in cooking. I have actually eaten this in Bhaji (Spinach) and the Pods cooked in Curry with Fish. Never even heard about any benefit until a few years ago.

Thoughts as related to today Father's Day 2018:

Today is a very special day in the life of a "father" especially those whose children have been taken from them by force at the Border. Yes, these children will most likely have a confusing and difficult time dealing with the after effects, some of them will cope better than others. But what about their parents who have no idea where they are or what happened to them?

Today, I am reminded of a saying I saw recently. Anyone can be a "father" but it takes a special kind of man to be a "dad". As I have gotten older, I have seen those few words play out in millions of ways in our communities. Particularly with fathers and children from the Caribbean and many minority communities. Many of those fathers had abusive parents themselves who prided themselves as being very strict. The kind whose "mantra" was, I provide you with a roof over your head and you are not starving, as if this is all there is to being a "father". This is how many men see themselves. How many men do NOT even do that little? And how many do that and more, like taking their children to school, taking them to the Park, helping them with school work, taking them on "road trips" all the while talking with them while building a bond, knowing who their friends are, or having a home where their friends are welcome. These are the children who are not likely to get involved with the "wrong" crowd, get in trouble with the law nor get accidently shot while being in the wrong place at the wrong time. They in turn, will one day have children of their own and will strive to be a "good" DAD!

Many of these "fathers" and their children are living in dis-functional homes and families. Some are not aware of their situations and will probably deny all is NOT well. However, in this day an age when "depression" and various types of abuse - emotional, physical and mental is rearing its head around the world, I am hoping some folks might see themselves in these these words and reach out to their children before it is too late. Share meals with them at least a few times a week and talk to them, find out what is happening in their life at school or at work. Please embrace your children, forgive them if you feel they are not living up to your standard and forgive yourself.
