I am so sad for you and your family.
All I can do is pray 🙏🏼 for you.
My heart is broken. I had a dream Nik would meet @realDonaldTrump 😢
His sad ending as a poor artist with a giant Heart.
My Joy at a man who sculpted beautiful marble pieces of art. ❤️ like Nik’s @FLOTUS 🌹
Every sculpture here in USA 🇺🇸 , defiled, spray painted, torn down
By anarchists, thugs, violent terrorists,
I am drawn again to Why Artists Carve Stone.
It is not to merely to invoke lightheartedness,
Or “the good” in people.
It is a Mile Marker
On the Timeline of Lives Lived.

The King of Marble Nikolai Shmatko created a bust of the US First Lady Melania Trump ⁦@dagenmcdowell⁩ and ⁦@MariaBartiromo⁩ My good friend ⁦@nikshmatko⁩ died this week. He lived in Ukraine on $60/mo pension. Denied transplant & ambulance kingofmarble-shmatko.com/news_in/news45…
Nik had wanted to gift his marble carvings to @realDonaldTrump and @FLOTUS ❤️ I wanted Nik to meet the Man who predicted Donald Trump would win in 2016 and 2020 . Jack? has suspended Nik’s sons account @rafaelshmatko Hard to get word out 😢 Image
@dagenmcdowell I have to report my dismay at the systematic dismantling of Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia. It was a most majestic living museum of fine art. Sculpture, Art, is not about just the Good. It is often in Overcoming the Bad. Image

@SonnieJohnson well worth listening to your history lesson, your civics lesson, your vision, your #Why #Renaissance Demystifying Local Government vs. Federal. Excellent. I want @farmerdarrell to have a listen. We need a new party. I’m Caucasian, moved to Virginia from Vermont.
I suffered mightily at the hands of a local Progressive government, Violating my Right to Property Ownership, My Due Process Rights, My Constitutional Rights. traveloguefortheuniverse.blogspot.com/search?q=Prope…+
It Is Local Control that Failed Me. traveloguefortheuniverse.blogspot.com/search?q=Vote+…+ And Nobody Cared.
I will be thinking about your message a long time 😎
I hope @realDonaldTrump invites you to speak and help shape our Future. All of us. 🙏🏼

Unfortunately in USA 🇺🇸 different States have different Laws and Availability (or level of forbidding). My #Pain from #MultipleSclerosis is equally difficult to explain. My response to #MedicalCannabis is Very positive and a Very Effective Pain agent.Vermont: I got home delivery.
In Virginia I got a card a year ago for “low thc oil only”. Not one dispensary open for“Cannabis Lite”. Can’t get a Drop! My Doctors at UVA not allowed to certify I have Severe Pain from Multiple Sclerosis. Had to pay @Veriheal 🙏🏼❤️ for Doctor. Our @GovernorVA is a Doctor....
Federally Cannabis is scheduled as equivalent to Heroin.
@LevarStoney trying to get Law here changed to make Cannabis responsible use Legal in Virginia. Imagine not having criminal records for a substance Legal in Washington DC (residents only!) I hurt.

I think they believed #Pharma
1st Biopsy, Back of my head.Lump Felt infected.She did a punch.I asked,For Culture?She was snippy,said Pathology! She Thought it was cancer. It was not. I didn’t suspect #Gadolinium. She was close minded anyway.
Next Dermatologist biopsied my left hand, my fingers all tattered,nails all growing straight through digit pads. Said I had OCD-skin picking. I said, I’m a slob, how could I have OCD? 🤦‍♀️ Nice guy. I wasn’t even thinking Gadolinium then.
Third Dermatologist was here. My stubborn thumb the last to heal.Nearly 2 years ago.I told him my suspicions about gadolinium. He said,He’d heard about Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis but I had normal kidney function. I gently persisted (the old nurse in me). He said It’s Possible.

@katieengelhart @CalSunday Really great article and you certainly investigated all aspects of Nursing Facilities from many perspectives. My heart goes out to the Residents and their loved ones. Also the Staff who weren’t adequately supported nor guided by the Facility Owners,State Licensing and Protection.
@katieengelhart @CalSunday For Nursing Home Staff, They become Family to many Residents, especially the ones who don’t have family and people who visit or care. I hope they have emotional support as they feel grief, guilt, depression, helplessness. Lawsuits cause staff stress, not that lawsuits are bad...
@katieengelhart @CalSunday But Staff will feel worse than the corporation owners. Staff feel pressure from seeing so much death, remaining residents/family stress. Just think if the cold owner had personally called each victim’s family, apologized and supported the underpaid staff. Protective equipment??

Finally, The #Five can Agree on one subject 🌹
Nothing like a Flower to grow Common Ground
So Uncommon in the #Twitterverse 🤦‍♀️
@FLOTUS deserves praise for her renovations of #RoseGarden
#Disability Access the Most praiseworthy.
Greg, don’t forget co-occurring #Suffrage100 🗳
@DanaPerino Respectfully, some of us are confined by disability or circumstance. @Twitter admittedly a cesspool of craziness.If you wade through enough,it can be a great communication tool.I visit with friends day and night. Sending Good thoughts,Sharing prayer at virtual Church.
Unfortunately, the Bias of the Swamp Meister @jack is like running into an alligator 🐊 or a water moccasin 🐍. I try to report Negative, Rude, Obscene, Disrespectful and Election Candidate Interference. Then I block all trolls. Unfortunately, Melania Trump is Dissed Constantly!
