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!”

1. St Elizabeth was born in 1271 into the royal family of Aragon. At the age of twelve she was married to the king of Portugal, and had two children. The marriage was unhappy,

2. and led to many disputes between the families. She lived a life of penance, prayer and fasting. After her husband’s death she renounced the world and lived in poverty as a member of the Third Order of St Francis. War broke out between her son and grandson,

she died.


Father of peace and love,
you gave St Elizabeth the gift of reconciling enemies.
By the help of her prayers
give us the courage to work for peace among men,
that we may be called the sons of God.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ...

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

If you like Hamilton, watch 1776. I grew up watching it every #July4th and still love it. Plus, if you see it, you'll be able to catch the fun reference @Lin_Manuel included in Hamilton and earn your Bonafide Musical Nerd card.
One thing that's awesome about this musical, and Hamilton is similar, is that *so* many characters get amazing numbers. People you don't expect suddenly have show-stoppers, deep in the second act.
Surely by now someone has re-staged 1776 with Hamilton vibes, in terms of casting people of color, women, etc. in roles that traditionally went only to white men. I would watch/listen/pay to see that in a heartbeat.

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.

Washington’s #LincolnMemorial honours the United States’ 16th president, Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln’s many accomplishments include leading the US through the civil war and delivering the Emancipation Proclamation which led to the abolition of slavery.
#nspoli #July4th #HappyJuly4th ImageImageImage
Ground was broken for the foundation of the Lincoln Memorial on February 12, 1914. Because the memorial was to be built on drained and filled land, the memorial’s foundation had two parts.
#nspoli ImageImage
The sub-foundation is made up of 122 solid, poured concrete piers with steel reinforcing rods anchored in bedrock. The upper-foundation is a second series of piers resting on the primary columns.

امروز روز استقلال #آمریکا موسوم به #IndependenceDay یا #July4th است روزی که 13 ایالت اولیه از #بریتانیا مستقل شدند و #آمریکا بنیان گذاشته شد. به همین مناسبت مبارک چند خطی مینویسم.
#Happy4thofJuly2020 Image
1- افرادی که مرا فالو میکنند میدانند من در اکثر مواقع از مواضع #آمریکا در امور بین الملل از جمله سیاست سرسختانه و قاطعانه دولت
@realDonaldTrumpدر قبال #جمهوري_اسلامي حمایت میکنم. این نه فقط به خاطر این است که من ج.ا را حکومتی تروریست، توتالیتر و ضد ایرانی میدانم بلکه از جهت موضع
2-لیبرالی من و حمایت از لیبرال دموکراسی به ویژه از نوع آمریکایی آن است. بر خلاف #جمهوري_اسلامي که بر اساس انقلابی گری، خشونت، ترور و اجبار و زور بنا شده، آمریکا بر اساس آزادی و استقلال بنا شده است. اکثر افراد جامعه از نظر سیاسی و اجتماعی آزاد هستند و از نظر اقتصادی از دولت مستقل.

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.
