Most recents (24)

🚨Cases of #coronavirus have INCREASED in 23 states, DC and #PuertoRico compared with the prior week—most by 10% or more.

This new surge of #COVID19 cases stems from viral transmission a few weeks ago (#MemorialDay) — NOT this past week. 1/

Why this new surge of #COVID19 represent #coronavirus transmission from a few weeks ago:

▶️Median of 5 days after infection before 1st symptoms
▶️Typically another ~week before a person gets sick enough to seek testing
▶️Days before results reach public health departments

Up to 60% of #coronavirus cases are asymptomatic. Many who traveled on #MemorialDay weekend, as well as those who are protesting, are young and less likely to develop serious #COVID19 illness.

Even if they never show symptoms, they can infect others at high risk.😰

.@IndyMayorJoe: Houses of worship in Indy can resume indoor services Friday at 50% capacity, provided they observe #socialdistancing. No cap on outdoor services. "Our commitment to a data-driven public health policy has saved lives."
Indoor dining, again with social distancing and #PPE, can resume Monday. Same for gyms and personal services businesses like salons, by appointment only.
Stores and malls can move up to 75% capacity (other businesses at 50%). In short, Indy will align with state, except for 50% capacity limit on houses of worship.

"He's a fool, an absolute fool when he talks that way" @JoeBiden says in response to @DanaBashCNN question about President Trump's criticism of the former VP wearing a mask at a #MemorialDay stop.
@JoeBiden @DanaBashCNN Dana asks: Does a mask project strength or weakness? "Leadership," @JoeBiden says. "It presents and projects as leadership."
@JoeBiden @DanaBashCNN "It was a mistake," Biden says when asked about his "You ain't black" comment last week. Adds later: "I have never taken the African American community for granted."

1/ THREAD: Memorial Day in a Pandemic

I often struggle with #MemorialDay. With the calls for celebration and happiness on this day. For BBQs and summer fun.

Because nothing about this day is happy.

This day is about #grief. About tragedy. About #death and loss.

🇺🇸 😔 😢
2/ Above all, it is a day of RESPECT. Because Americans gave their lives in service to protect the citizens and country of the United States.

The lives they previously dreamt of were cut short. And that selfless gift of life is one of the highest honors to serve your country. Image
3/ But their husbands and wives will never kiss their spouses again. Their children will never hug their mothers or fathers again. It doesn’t change the visceral grief of parents losing their children to #prematuredeath. #memorialdayweekend2020 Image

"Halfway down the trail to Hell,
In a shady meadow green
Are the Souls of all dead Troopers camped,
Near a good old-time canteen.
And this eternal resting place

The Infantry are seen.
Accompanied by the Engineers,
Artillery and Marines,

Dismount at Fiddlers’ Green...

To seek a warmer scene.
No Trooper ever gets to Hell
Ere he’s emptied his canteen.
And so rides back to drink again

This #MemorialDay, I’ll remember how our countrymen, brethren, brothers, cousins, fathers, uncles, grandfathers, great grandfathers, and ancestors were used as cannon fodder or slaughtered for the interests of International Finance, Bolshevism, and Zionism
I’ll remember who orchestrated the events that pulled the U.S. into WW1, where 116,000 American service members were killed

I’ll remember who orchestrated the dirty deal to get Americans into WWI and why

Speaking with @wolfblitzer a short time ago, Arkansas Gov @AsaHutchinson vomited up the following gem about wearing masks: When you think about it, isn’t this “what #MemorialDay is all about? Sacrificing for others...?”
NO. It is to HONOR those who have, and continue to, SACRIFICE THEIR LIVES for YOU AND ME. So that we retain our freedoms under our constitution. So that we keep our basic right to work, shelter and feed our families and leave our homes.
So that we aren’t forced to surrender our rights to tyrannical power-tripping politicians and failed “scientific” models or to orders to wear masks when there is still no consensus in the scientific community whether they help or harm.

This is a picture of my grandfather from his time in the army.

Days like #MemorialDay are fraught for me as an abolitionist from a police and military family. #DemilitarizeNow #AbolitionNow Image
It's hard to honor the sacrifices (I do believe military service is a sacrifice, just not in the ways that are touted/glorified) of poor, working Black ppl in my family/community, while being clear they have suffered for those sacrifices, as have many around them. #MemorialDay
The "sacrifice" of the service people in my life has been of their mental/physical/emotional health. The result has been generations of trauma for themselves and their loved ones. #MemorialDay #DemilitarizeNow #AbolitionNow

Today on #MemorialDay2020, we celebrate the Americans who decided our freedom was worth their lives.

We should be ashamed then that so many people have given up that hard-won freedom for lockdowns that might not even save lives

And some might accuse me of politicizing this #MemorialDay2020. But we should remember not only their sacrifice, but the thing that they sacrificed for: our freedom. Our greatest Americans waxed poetic about the belief that life without freedom is not worth living
But nothing speaks more eloquently to that, than the great Americans who gave their “last measure of devotion,” to give us our freedom. To throw it away so easily dishonors every single one of those honored dead

Why did Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, then a British Army Captain in the Blues and Royals, a regiment of the Household Cavalry, salute the American Unknown Soldier interred in Arlington Cemetery?
#SpecialRelationship 🇺🇸🇬🇧
Though the monument has no officially designated name, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is a monument dedicated to deceased US service members whose remains have not been identified. It is located in Arlington National Cemetery in Virginia.
The Unknown Soldier received the Medal of Honor, the highest and most prestigious military decoration awarded to recognize US military service members who have distinguished themselves by acts of valor. The medal is presented by the President in the name of the Congress.

#MemorialDay hits differently this year. What if a foreign government was responsible for the deaths of 100,000 of our friends, neighbors, coworkers, and family members?

My family members have gone to war for America over much, much less.
For many, the military offers a way out of the poverty & instability we face b/c of intentional disinvestment in our communities.

Billions of taxpayer $ go to the military to keep us “safe.” How much safer could we be if we just invested in education, jobs, & healthcare for all?
I believe the best way to honor those we lost is to:

1. Be honest about the cost of war;

2. Champion #PeopleFirst policies so less of our loved ones will have to make this sacrifice;

3. Provide comprehensive care, protections, & security for our troops when they come home.

Memorial Day (Thread)

Memorial Day, formally known as Decoration Day, was originally started by a group of African Americans.

The holiday was initially an event held by newly liberated Blacks in Charleston, South Carolina.

On May 1, 1865, at the end of the Civil War, thousands of newly freed slaves and regiments of the U.S. Colored Troops gathered to march around a Confederate Army prison camp in honor of the unnamed fallen Union soldiers who fought for their freedom.

African Americans were erased from the story of Memorial Day by white Democrats after they regained control of state politics at the end of Reconstruction.

A day that originally celebrated Black liberation was highjacked by white supremacists.

(1/16) It’s #MemorialDay in the USA. In preparation for my next book on the history of plastic surgery, I’m immersing myself in diaries, letters, & literature from #WWI. Today's THREAD is in honor of the nurses who played an integral part in the war effort. 👇
(2/16) Never before had the world faced such slaughter. During WWI, medical staff applied 1.5 million splints, administered 1,088 million doses of drugs, fitted over 20,000 artificial eyes & used 7,250 tons of cotton wool while applying 108 million bandages to injured combatants.
(3/16) More than 6,000 medical staff would die, & over 17,000 would be wounded in the British Army alone. No matter how extensive healthcare provisions were or how hard doctors and nurses worked, medical care was consistently overwhelmed the sheer number of wounded men.

JUST IN: @JoeBiden and @DrBiden make their first public appearance since mid-March, making stop at the Veterans Memorial Park at the Delaware Memorial Bridge in New Castle, Del., near his hometown of Wilmington, Del.
Per pooler @KThomasDC: “Mr. Biden wore a black mask covering his mouth and nose and a dark suit. He was joined by his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, for a brief wreath-laying ceremony at the site. Dr. Biden was wearing a black-and-white dress. The Bidens arrived at the site at 11:28 a.m”
MORE: The Bidens “placed a wreath of white flowers at the memorial. They paused for about a minute before the site and then walked to their nearby motorcade.” (More)

Prayer alone is not enough, it must be met with Good Works.

On #MemorialDay we honor those who gave their last full measure of devotion to our country.

But at this critical hour, we must do more than offer kind words. We must follow the example of those we honor—and act.

1️⃣ Speak out about the injustice of raising taxes on Gold Star families.

This was done in the Trump Tax Cuts—they raised taxes on military families to pay for tax cuts to corporations.

We must reverse this. Gold Star families have already paid the highest price.
2️⃣ Stand up for all veterans.

Understand that veterans of color are being targeted for hate crimes, deportation, and loss of benefits.

Understand that LGBTQ+ patriots have a federal government who scorns their service and trans patriots have been banned.

A moving #MemorialDay story from my friend & veteran @MickMulroy “In 2016, Brian Hoke and Nate Delemarre were two senior paramilitary officers in the CIA conducting a raid against a Taliban leader in Afghanistan on the border of Pakistan.” 1/ Image
2/ “While trying to get into position the team was engaged with a machine gun that struck Brian several times. Even after being injured he continued to fight and calling out the location of the shooter. Nate fought through withering enemy fire to reach Brian”
3/ “The two fought side by side until the end. Brian was awarded the Intelligence Star for his valor in combat. Nate was awarded the Intelligence Cross for his valor in combat. The CIA’s equivalent to the Silver Star and Medal of Honor respectively.”
