Valentine’s day is Sunday and it’s a day when love is celebrated. Yes I know… love is not celebrated just one day of one month in the year, but it is a day marked on the calendar set aside to be celebrated. A day when most people express their love for one another with flowers, dinner and gifts.
Valentine’s day is not just about couples and those in love but love shared in all of your relationships period.
Since the global pandemic hit almost a year ago, it has given birth to a lot of entrepreneurs, individuals who have taken their skill sets to another level or expounded on their services to meet the needs of people. We see mobile businesses rolling up everywhere, providing services with safety measures in place to service the needs of clients, customers and individuals creatively.
You have telehealth professionals and front line workers making it happen in order to keep the economy moving forward. A couple of months ago I had my vehicle detailed from the comfort of my driveway, in the same sense you have companies doing home deliveries and services like never before.
The holidays are upon us and with Thanksgiving just a week away people are anxious for connection. The isolation is not good for one’s metal health and let’s face it, some people are simply isolated due to Covid. The stress of getting it, not getting it is wreaking havoc on the nerves. We’re tired of hearing about it. Tired of talking about it, tired of wearing masks just plain old tired.
Unfortunately during this time of year and with where we are with COVID-19 and this pandemic, this is the time to be even more vigilant and more determined.
This week, the U.S. joined nations around the world in instituting sweeping emergency measures to further combat the corona-virus pandemic. In an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, schools and universities are shut down, and concerts and convention centers across the globe have been closed and cancelled. And now public health advocates are saying African Americans are at a greater risk of death from corona virus.
For a whole host of economic, political and historical reasons, Georges C. Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, says it’s a threat that African Americans need to take particularly seriously.
In the past three weeks since declaring the corona virus a national emergency, President Donald Trump has delivered a dizzying array of rhetorical contortions, sowed confusion and repeatedly sought to cast blame on others. He has faulted governors for acting too slowly, the democrats by claiming it’s a hoax and China because after-all, it’s their virus.
America is winning its war on corona-virus, the president says — yet the death toll is still rising, and in the best case scenario more Americans will die than in the wars fought in Vietnam, Korea, Afghanistan and Iraq combined.
Instead of real leadership from the current administration, all we’re hearing and seeing is a COMMANDER OF CONFUSION!! This president continues to sow uncertainty and seeks to cast blame in the midst of this deadly crisis.
