‘Holiday’ for Sandy

 

I’ve spent the week quietly grieving the death of
a treasured sister I didn’t know.

I worried we’d died before resolving the pain that
made us run from each other.

I don’t know how to manage my illness and the pain of this grief.

So tomorrow, I begin intensive outpatient treatment at Kaiser.

I’ll blog about the experience as my concentration returns.

To my friends on WordPress and other social media, thank you for
your words of support: I treasure them.

To Sandy’s loved ones on Facebook, In Richmond Virginia
and elsewhere I offer this slide show made from the handful of
selfies and faded snapshots gathered from her collection.

I will revise this video as I find higher resolution photos.

I set it to ‘Holiday’ by the Bee Gees.

It was one of her favorite songs.

Sandra Sarah Goldstein – Dunaway;

I miss you.

President Elect Trump: Millions of People Voted Illegally

Millions Voted Illegally
Millions Voted Illegally

 

Today Trump says that ‘millions’ of people voted illegally.

Now is a great time to treat him like a ‘normal’ President elect.

I assume that the President elect has facts based on intelligence briefings
and that he is speaking the truth.

‘Millions’ of illegal votes suggest a criminal conspiracy to undermine the election.

It means the result of every race from the president to the house to the governor’s races is suspect and that to ensure the will of the people a national audit is imperative.

Mr. Trump is the incoming President and normal presidents don’t spout bullshit.

I therefore assume that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 elections and as a concerned citizen, I demand a national audit of the vote.

Stigma Kills

An Amnesty Internatonal Campaign for mental health care
Stigma Kills

 

Yesterday was the end of Invisible Illnesses Week for 2016, but,
the illnesses don’t end and neither does the stigma.

A screeenshot of Trumps comment that men with PTSD are weak
Trump suggests that people with PTSD are weak.

Please remember when you vote this year that our political decisions
shape our institutions and the lives of everyone around us.

Our votes mean the difference between school and no school, health care and no health care, treatment for the mentally ill or death from lack of treatment.

Progressives are the majority in the United States; this is why the opposition spends so much time and money to divide us and suppress our votes.

So, your vote counts.

It means a great deal to people who live in desperate need of housing, education, and healthcare.

Our Vets who suffer PTSD need your vote now more than ever.

This election is about who we are as a people and what we mean when we call ourselves civilized.
