Turn, Turn, Turn!


I was reading an article on Drudge, the only news I read. I remember this song from Forest Gump. I like it. It reminds me of new beginnings, Spring, happiness, with sprinkles of sadness, but ultimately joy. I can’t always be happy, but I can always be filled with joy.

And in this time of worldwide lockdown. I am pleased to spend more time with my four month old baby. I did not get this much time with my two older children. This is my last baby, so its wonderful to enjoy seeing so much of her precious and short first year. She is a cutie pie!

I am also creating art. Something you would think would be easy for an art teacher, but I teach for a living. Creating art is something I haven’t been able to really fit in until now.

Here is my most recent piece. It is for the 2020 School for Art Leaders sponsored by the National Art Education Association. I was a member of the first class in 2015. Each year we create artwork to go to members of the next class of art leaders.

Anthony Fauci sets stage for mandatory — lucrative! — vaccine – Washington Times

“Vaccines are miracles,” said Pedro Alonso, the director for the Institute for Global Health of Barcelona, and another stakeholder in the “Decade of Vaccines” program. Yes. And for certain folk, certain insider folk, vaccines are also great economic and political investments.

This article really bothers me. I believe in vaccines. My husband does not. We have argued so much about this topic. Your parents tell you to marry someone with the same religion, well don’t forget to discuss vaccines too. We have come to an agreement…for now. My husband doesn’t like vaccines because of information like what is written in this article. I do think vaccines save many, many lives, BUT when they are politically used as money makers for the already super rich there is a problem.

I am a leader and I have read the books. Leaders capitalize on crisis and are taught to turn all disasters, big and small, into a platform to further their skills, their agenda, what they want and believe is right. I am a leader and I do this all the time, BUT there is a point when I draw the line.

Just because we can, doesn’t mean we should. Just because I can, doesn’t mean I should. Just because there are millions to made off of the death of others, doesn’t mean the money should be made. And if it is made, it should go back to the ones who suffered! Not to people who are already rich!

I forget the name of the book, but it was about leadership and it scared me. I could not believe the words I was reading. I could not believe that people do this everyday, all the time like nothing. This concept has been around since the beginning of time. The few suffer for the needs of the many, or so we think… I read two chapters in this book I forget the name of, where there were issues in the system. Innocent people were going to die and the higher ups were told and did nothing. They needed a crisis, they needed people to suffer to fuel their agenda, their ego, their pockets. So, they waited and people died. Then and, only then, did they make changes. They claimed the credit and got what they wanted, but people died. Innocent, naive people died.

I am a leader and I have worked hard to learn the game, play the game, and use the game to my advantage, to use my influence over others to support my own agenda. I pray to God that I never allow others to suffer and die to get what I want. I hope that my agenda, my goals never, ever lead to the death of another. I beg God to give me the strength to set aside my ambition, humbling me enough to let my beliefs go when others will pay the ultimate price.

With all that being said, have people in our world leadership waited for this pandemic to come? Did leaders know and said nothing, did nothing? Is this pandemic really as bad as they say? Will a vaccine save us all?

Or is it all bullshit and my husband is right…
