Breanna was set to be a freshman at Navarro College this fall.

She & everyone else in her household were unvaccinated due to pressure from friends and family, her mom Tabitha, says. Image
July
Breanna, Tabitha & everyone in their household became infected with #COVID19.

Only Breanna became seriously ill
July 31
Breanna was hospitalized.

Before getting sick, she was a normal, healthy teen getting ready for college.
Breanna stayed in hospital for more than two weeks, and was treated with supplemental oxygen.

Soon, her condition got worse
Aug 19
Tabitha spoke to Breanna on the phone.

She tried to calm her daughter down as she struggled to breathe.

It would be the last time she would hear her daughter’s voice.

Breanna died hours after that phone call.

She was only 19. Image
Breanna’s tragic death leaves her family devastated & forever changed.

They regret choosing not to get vaccinated —despite the threat of the Delta variant. 

But now, they all have gotten their first dose of a vaccine & their second shots are scheduled for later in September. Image
This is just one of many stories like it.

I’m glad that Breanna’s family has been vaccinated but my heart breaks for them.

My hope is that their story helps someone else.

On September 6th, Kali, a sassy, funny 4 year old preschooler, was running around her home gleefully batting the fake red eyelashes her grandmother had given her for Labor Day.
Kali’s mom, Karra, who is unvaccinated, tested positive for COVID-19 that day.

She came home and isolated from her entire family, which includes her fiancé, Kali and Kali’s brother and 5-month-old sister.

By 2 a.m., Kali had a fever.
Just a few hours later, at 7am on September 7th—the day after her mom tested positive—little Kali died.

She is the first child younger than 10 & the youngest resident in Galveston County to die from COVID-19.

Kali Cook was only four years old.

Somewhere floating on the net & buried on an ancient hard drive or floppy are my experiences on this day 20 years ago. I sat down that night and wrote about my day. I wish I could find them. #WhereWereYou
I can tell you how I felt. Uncertain. Sad. Afraid. Like everyone else.

I was almost 27 & lived 45min or so from NYC.

I overslept.
I backed over the mailbox when I heard.

I watched the 2nd plane hit & the towers fall while pet sitting.

I remember the jumpers.
#911NeverForget
I remember checking on clients who worked in Manhattan.

I remember a last minute job requested the prev day, a Dalmatian.

Her ‘dad’ lost most of his co-workers at Cantor Fitzgerald bc his wife convinced him to go away for a few days.

Others in the neighborhood died that day.

Sept. 11 froze America's counterterrorism thinking in place
By ⁦@milleridriss

“new forms of extremism, including unexpected cross-ideological coalitions, are ever-evolving. But we can’t repeat the mistakes of the past…” msnbc.com/opinion/sept-1…
“The politics of fear after 9/11 eventually helped generate support for immigration restrictions, border closures and “America First” agendas that more explicitly aim to preserve white, Christian culture.”
Far-right extremism is heavily driven by the weaponization of online youth culture and the use of satire and humor that positions the far right as a kind of countercultural, edgy resistance to “triggered snowflakes” in the mainstream.

⚠️Trump Insiders Are Quietly Paying Teen Memers —some as young as 14–For Posts

Documents show that meme accounts rife with disinformation have also become shadowy advertising tools for some notable Republicans.
ht ⁦@JimHWhitelawhuffpost.com/entry/trump-in…
The services they provide are highly valuable: They’ve fostered relationships with huge niche communities and can launch hushed influence campaigns free from oversight and transparency mandates enforced through regulated advertising channels.
This could open the door to dark-money campaigns and targeted, opaque disinformation operations reminiscent of Russia’s Project Lakhta (if it hasn’t already)

Little evidence
Untraceable influence ops
No oversight Image
