How does a city's trauma system come together to both prepare for the expected surge of the #COVIDー19 #pandemic & manage the ongoing #epidemic of #gunviolence & other trauma?

Through a great collaborative effort, we published the #Philadelphia experience in @JTraumAcuteSurg

The full paper is published ahead of print here:…

It represents the importance of #teamwork in ensuring a robust, rapid, coordinated effort to manage an evolving threat

Our publication timing coincides with a brutal #July4th weekend where #Philadelphia saw over 30 people shot including several children

But how did the #pandemic and #socialdistancing mandate affect trauma volume in our centers?

The rise of the #AmericanDaesh:

You thought it would never happen here, right #CNN #NBC #ABC #CBS #FNC?

You thought that the riots were just a convenient way to "dump #trump" & raise cash.

But you were wrong because if they come, they'll come for you too!

#July4th in Stone Mountain, GA

I wonder what kind of "peacedul protest" angle the #FakeNews media is going to try this time?

Oh oh... Bad news for the #DomesticTerrorists. They are so over top - THE MEDIA WILL LIKELY IGNORE THEM.

@FBI and @DHSgov? Not so much.

The media "whitewash" of the armed march on #StoneMountainGA on #July4 2020 promoting racist, anti-government violence, has begun...

Back out at BLM Plaza as a mix of tourists, Trump supporters and protesters mill around on this hot July 4.

The tents police cleared from H St earlier today have reappeared just feet away. Debates are breaking out, but it’s a calm atmosphere. Trump is expected to speak in 2 hrs.
Most of the interactions b/w the different sides here have been debates — like this one when Refuse Fascism activists told folks to walk on the US flag, saying it‘s a symbol of “slavery, genocide and war.” A Trump supporter asked why they need to step on the flag to make a point.
Trump’s Salute to America airshow has begun. From where I’m standing at Black Lives Matter Plaza, the response has been that of mild interest to outright distain. As Air Force 1 flew overhead, several protesters raised middle fingers and shouted down the plane. “Fuck you, Trump!”

We talk a lot about the Founding Fathers on #July4th, but America is always being refounded. We see leaders throughout our history who inspire us to be that more perfect union we were not at our inception...
I'd like to include in the pantheon of our Founders folks like Harriet Tubman. Just like the colonists who broke from England, Harriet Tubman rebelled against cruel laws because she saw a need for justice.
Ella Baker, Ruby Bridges, and Civil Rights Movement leaders and marchers did just as much to define what America is than Thomas Jefferson and James Madison. Let’s expand what we consider American principles and who brought them to us.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, #4thofJuly
the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. #4thofJuly
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. #4thofJuly

#July4th is a bittersweet “holiday” for black folks, but it nevertheless belongs to us too. Many of our ancestors waged vicious wars against slavery at home and on battlefields during the Revolution. 1/
Enslaved people heard Euro-descended colonists’ fancy hypocritical words about *their* “enslavement” to Britain and how they wanted *their* liberty and took action to secure their own. 2/
They fought in the American Revolution on both sides. They sued enslavers for their freedom and sometimes won. They petitioned courts for slavery’s abolition and furthered the cause for Northern abolition in the process. 3/

THREAD: VICKSBURG, AN #INDEPENDENCEDAY STORY. Il #July4th 1863 la Confederazione veniva sconfitta e spaccata in due a Vicksburg. Un passo essenziale verso il “new birth of freedom” che sarebbe diventato l’obiettivo ultimo dell’Unione nella guerra civile
Leggenda vuole che Vicksburg si arrese due volte, prima a Grant, poi a Eisenhower. Nel 1947 tra le polemiche fu invitato come ospite per la prima festa pubblica dell’#IndependenceDay in 84 anni. Parte di questa, la commemorazione dei confederati caduti meno di un secolo prima
La città infatti non dimenticava l’assedio che la mise in ginocchio il 4 luglio 1863, il giorno dopo la sconfitta di Lee a #Gettysburg. Tra le più brillanti campagne della guerra civile, Ulysses Grant inflisse un colpo mortale alle speranze di vittoria della confederazione

Beginning with the founding of America, African Americans created new visions of freedom that have benefited all Americans. The paradox of the American Revolution—the fight for liberty in an era of widespread slavery—is embedded in the foundation of the US #ANationsStory #July4th
Thomas Jefferson drafted the Declaration of Independence and called slavery an “abominable crime,” yet he was a lifelong slaveholder. His statue stands in our Slavery & Freedom exhibition with the names of the 600 men, women and children he enslaved at Monticello. #ANationsStory
The tension between slavery and freedom—who belongs & who is excluded—resonates through the nation's history & spurs the American people to interfere constantly with building "a more perfect union." This paradox was embedded in national institutions that are still vital today.

I frequently get asked about risk of catching #covid19 from various activities.

I love this diagram.

As your personal risk goes up (bc of your own health, or because of #covid19 prevalence in your area), engagement in risky activities should stop.
And a clear, consistent list of what to NOT DO right now (regardless of personal health or local #covid19 prevalence) - DO NOT:
* go to bars
* go to indoor parties (50+ people)
* go to public indoor events where people are yelling or singing

Just watched #ACapitolFourth. It was everything Trump's authoritarian event was not: Diverse entertainment (including Muppets singing G-d Bless America). #JohnStamos saying cool things about America. Vanessa Williams singing #AmericaTheBeautiful. Sousa. Fireworks. #July4thPBS
#AmericaTheBeautiful was written by #KatherineLeeBates, a #lesbian professor at #WellesleyCollege--alma mater of my mother and #HillaryClinton.

Bates was partnered for 30yrs with #KatharineComan, who founded the economics school at Wellesley.
#KatherineLeeBates wrote #AmericaTheBeautiful for #FourthofJuly.
My favorite line "mend thine every flaw" "thy liberty in law." Our #Constitution is meant to grow and breathe and fix what is wrong with this nation.

👏Trump can read. Off a TelePrompTer. That’s the headline. But he’s still trying to emphasize his Trumpy wink-wink buzzwords for the base: “One heritage” “UNBORN millions” “No one will take it away from us” “The nation is stronger than ever before”

#July4th #DefendDemocracy ☔️
I take it back. Trump couldn't even read off a teleprompter well. The further the speech went into US history he's clearly ignorant of, he messed up words, names, even said bonkers "Airports." AND JUST NOW BLAMED THE TELEPROMPTER AND THE RAIN. ("Rain took the Teleprompter out")🤨
LowBar Prez didn't totally screw up or recite repugnant rally rhetoric, so got away w/a fascist infomercial for 2020—literally taking center stage w/ military on #July4. And created so much crisis—abusive border camps, racist census,NK,Iran—we triage, move on, as fascism rolls on

Working-class life in the United States is a series of daily interactions with petty dictators.

Our workplaces are dictatorships that hold measly paychecks over our heads in demand of daily subservience.
Our homes are owned by banks & landlords, who hold the threat of homelessness over our heads in demand of payments we cannot afford.

Creditors bombard us with phone calls, holding the threat of court action & wage garnishment over our heads in demand of payments we cannot afford
Utilities companies hold the threat of taking away electricity or heat over our heads in demand of payments we cannot afford.

Schools hold the threat of calling child protection on us if we cannot afford to feed, dress or house our children "properly" on these measly paychecks.

July 4, 1826.

The nation was 50 years old.

Only two of the Founding Fathers, who fought and struggled and risked their lives for OUR freedom today, had survived.

Two men who had been political enemies... two polar opposites, who had pained and grieved each other had lived... see our nation's 50th birthday.

Though they both loved America, their views on how this unique, new nation would be formed clashed. At times, one was even willing to destroy the reputation of the other, in order to promote their own political agenda... their own vision...
...for how these United States of America would become a nation which would survive to be governed by the people.

These two men were the great statesmen and our 2nd and 3rd Presidents, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson.

BOTH contributed to our nation.

BOTH loved America.

1. #July4th celebrates our founders' act of defiance against a tyrant. @realDonaldTrump, a tyrant wannabe, defiles their memory, our flag & our Capital by his presence in our @WhiteHouse. If you go this embarrassing event please treat our service members with the respect
2. they truly deserve. And to all of them, I promise you will never be used as a prop to re-elect a @KremlinRussia_E puppet again. When we have fumigated our @Whitehouse from the #GRU stench, we will make #Putin pay a price that will show our enemies in Moscow the cost
3. of attacking the US. Any network broadcasting it should be shunned and the names of the @GOP traitors who conspired with @Trump to defile our #4thofJulywill be made public so that we can identify the enemies of our great Republic and their
