Ferguson is a touchy and frighteningly telling situation for our country. I can only hope that this comes out to a conclusion which will serve to strengthen and not to further weaken our country.
Now I have to ask: What has happened to Ebola? Has it gone way? Are we safe?
Diminutive reports which scroll quickly by on the bottom of my screen tells to me very little in the way of what if anything is being done to halt the spreading of this disease, or whether or not it has already arrived in the US.
Ferguson has and will happen again and the over because we have a flawed system which falsely rewards far too many who have done little to nothing: while marginalizing the efforts and accomplishments of those who work daily to be an asset to our society.
Young people all of all backgrounds are feeling the pressures of a limited future. Jobs have been outsourced, and even the military is scheduled to be scaled-back. They are asking the hard questions about their future prospects, and they are not receiving answers which give to them little to no comfort.
Science is saying different things about the spread of Ebola and other possible pandemic-producing diseases. Is there a vaccine; and if so; will it work? Who will receive it, and what will be the guidelines providing the list of who will?
Is this a real threat beyond the borders of Africa; or are we being misdirected in order to keep our attentions from something more ominous?
Keep your eyes and your ears open on this one: and if you know something...share it with everyone else! Please!
