RIP Kerri Grote #perspective

"If you’re reading this, this fu$king brain cancer probably got me.
But let me be crystal clear while I’m able: I did not ”lose a battle” against cancer. This is a ridiculous, steamy pile of horse shit that society has dumped on cancer patients.
Western medicine, and Western culture, especially, is so uncomfortable talking about death that instead it created this “battle” analogy that basically shames people who die from cancer.
News flash: None of us gets out alive from this rodeo called life.
There is no shame in dying from cancer – or any serious illness. And it doesn’t need to be a battle. It’s a transition that each of us will go through. I was asked by a shaman, whom I spoke to after my 2nd brain surgery, “Are you running towards life or running away from death?”

While NOTHING compares to the Holocaust & the systematic slaughter & attempted world-wide annihilation of the Jewish people... is fair to examine the successful use of repeated propaganda by the Nazi Party to bend the will of everyday citizens to achieve Nazi goals.

The soft, soothing voice from the speaker above repeats...

"We are all in this together"

"Doing our/your part"

"Staying apart to stay safe."

"Stay home, stay safe."

"Stay safe"

Minutes pass...and that same soothing voice repeats its rallying cries for you to make sacrifices for the greater good.

A greater good that may require you to:

- sacrifice your freedoms.

- shame others who do not fall in line...and "snitch" on your neighbors.

Hey #Ontario

8 things to think about as we head into a new week:

1) Reminder: "Hospitalization", "ICU" & "Deaths" are all subsets of the total number of "Cases" - & are subject to the same case definition.

- The case definition only requires...

...a recent "positive" test result (NO symptoms required).

- This means that neither "Cases", "Hospitalizations", "ICU" nor "Deaths" require the person to actually have COVID-19 symptoms to be counted.

2) #BREAKING: Viruses do NOT care about your feelings or how important your task is (or you feel that it is).

- If a virus so contagious and/or dangerous that the only way to protect yourself is to take precautions - then the level of risk does NOT...

Just a reminder...

"Hospitalizations", "ICU admissions", & "deaths" attributed to COVID-19 are all a subset of the total # of "cases" - and as such are subject to the case definition which only requires a "+" test result (with or WITH symptoms) usually within previous 30 days.…

So, if you had a "positive" test result on admission to hospital for emergency heart surgery, etc. - and NEVER had or developed symptoms during your entire hospital stay - you would be classified as a "COVID-19 Hospitalization".
If you had a "+" test result & then died of traumatic injuries after an accident, committed suicide, or were already on death's doorstep & were expected to die imminently from cancer - yet had absolutely NO symptoms of COVID-19 - you would still be classified a "COVID-19 death".

Uber driver this morning told me he arrived in the UK from Ethiopia 14 years ago. What surprised you most, I asked. ‘All the food! In Tesco’s in Earls Court! And people were politely taking it to the checkout! People are so polite here!’ #perspective
So we talked about his boyhood in Tigré province. ‘You know why we’re good at running? Because the nearest village is miles away, and if you don’t run with a message for your uncle you get a slap!’
‘I ran a marathon when I got here. In 3 hours 15’ When he finishes his shift, he told me, he was off to his second job at the post office.

You need to provide some #perspective
You have only found less than 300 cases of the "Oh-so-scary" UK variant from Dec. 26 to today....
...out of over 130,000 positive tests in that same time period.

You have stated that you are testing the sickest as you feel that those are more likely to give positive test results for variants - BUT still have come up with less than impressive numbers.

The Ontario Ministry of Health's own report on variants does not show any alarming trends either - as shown below and here:

Ravi was an abuser, sexual predator, sex trafficker, and rapist.

Guess who enabled an entire culture that included the common practice of these evils?

Johnathan Edwards, George Whitefield, & all the other slave master theologians many of you adore & champion.

Chattel slavery & chattel slave culture included the following common practices:

1. Rape (often led to victim birthing rapist’s child)
2. Molestation
3. Forced incest (“breeding” was often done among a single African family)
4. Sex trafficking
5. Kidnapping
6. Forced adultery
Just wanted to share some realities with you all to help you discern some self-righteous posturing that you will likely witness in the coming days...

You have created a #CultureOfFear for the people of Ontario.

We know that variants and mutations are a normal and EXPECTED course for viruses - and does NOT increase their pathogenicity or mortality.…

We know that there have been thousands or variants circulating for MANY months.…

We know that the focus on variants started when the UK used a less-than-concerning academic article in the BMJ to justify their new draconian measures in mid-December.

You did NOT need to jump on that bandwagon.

Creating fear of "variants" seems like a desperate last measure to keep the fear of the "pandemic" going and keep the attention away from the irreparable harm YOUR reaction to it has caused to our:

One has to wonder why the virus has NOT ravaged the homeless in Toronto...?
...why it HASN'T run rampant through the ubiquitous crowded apartment buildings in Toronto where people have not only had to share hallways, elevators, and laundry rooms - but have been...
1/... Image
...essentially confined indoors in those buildings with hundreds of strangers for more time than they have ever spent previously?

Even PRIOR to the mask mandates - this was NOT a problem!

Could it be that this virus carries the highest risk for...
...the elderly WITH multiple co-morbidities AND who are cohorted with similar high risk individuals (i.e. LTC) - and the risk to the remainder of society is extremely low?

Oh wait...we have been saying this all along...

* #Gratitude*
I keep a "memory jar" for each year wherein I write in brief the best moments of my life & lessons learnt. Even a small event which taught me something goes in it .
I strongly believe in " No regrets, only lessons learnt ".
( That's handpainted by me! :) )
Occasionally when I have a rough day or when I am elated , I go through the chits one by one savouring the lessons learnt . It keeps me grounded. Makes me realise I am blessed to have had so many #memories & grown as a person and that life is beautiful !! 😇
Things that happen to us, just happen. It is we who perceive it to be good or bad as per our emotions at play. It is then that practising gratitude becomes of utmost importance for we need to realign our thoughts towards #positivity& #contentment & steer away from negativity.
