Zero New Positive COVID-19 Tests in Renfrew County.

There are official reports of Renfrew County currently having zero new cases of COVID-19 which is an extraordinary success in the eyes of many. I am local to Renfrew County and I am proud to say that we are working as a team communicating to each other as random strangers just to make sure everyone in the area is being safe and healthy.

It also warms my heart to see people taking social distancing very serious and yet, everyone remains in a positive mindset communicating to each other with “thank you” and “pardon me miss/sir”. It’s important to remember that “when the fire dies you think it’s over but it’s just begun” with flu season on the way. Keep up the good fight and hold steady. Renfrew County is setting a positive example for not just in Canada but also in the rest of the world. I’ve always said that the NHL team that communicates the most is the team that will win the Stanley Cup. So let’s keep up to date and talk about what is important rather than trying to deny truths that we should all be aware of. Once again, thank you for all that you’ve been doing to keep others and yourself in good health, front-line workers as well. I commend all of you.

You Are Normal

Sometimes I feel much pain when I think of the bad things that go on during times of strife or famine. I wonder why human lives aren’t treated as if they have value and this makes me cry without sound or movement from my body. All I feel are the many tears that gush from my eyes onto my cheeks and down to my lips where I can sense how salty tears can be. I’d be willing to bet that there are many other people out there who feel the same way. Perhaps this is why I wrote this post is to inform those that they are not alone in their compassionate suffering. You are normal!

True North Strong and Free

Some Canadians are claiming that Prime Minister Trudeau is limiting or completely taking away our freedom. Our grandfathers and great grandfathers that fought for our freedom would be extremely upset with comments like this. These thinkers that claim our freedom is at risk also claim that the Prime Minister owns the media and is suppressing the free press yet here I am using my right to free speech and I have yet to hear of anyone being thrown in jail without a fair trial for speaking their mind. I have also yet to hear that the PM is invoking a supreme leadership position which would undermine all of the other parties in the house.

Any soldier will tell you that freedom comes with sacrifice. I wonder how those soldiers feel when they hear that our freedoms are being taken away from us by a leader who supports the right to assemble and demonstrate while joining those demonstrations in a display of solidarity for the people by the people. Syrian refugees that have fled to Canada say that Canada is like Heaven compared to what they have experienced in war-torn Syria. Truth be told we are very lucky and blessed to have a system that prevents leadership from oppressing the people that live in it. In a world-wide-web society, it would be impossible for one party to own the free press as social media gives us the platform to speak our minds and organize peaceful demonstrations. I’m quite positive that all leaders in Canada understand the importance of the free press after-all, they do take questions every day from many different people who intend to keep leadership on their toes with every right and responsibility to do so. Have a beautiful Canada Day and God bless!

Disbelief Has No Place At The Table

So a friend of mine posted an article stating that COVID-19 has the same fatality rate as seasonal influenza… The problem with this is that it isn’t even flu season yet and from what I hear about the United States death toll and surging case reports after reopening, it isn’t looking good. To help you understand my view, when is the last time you heard of an entire residence at an old age home dying from the flu? If this sort of thing does happen why aren’t we informed or why haven’t we heard it through the grapevine in passing conversation. When the second wave hits during flu season I pray that we will have finally realized that disbelief has no place at the table. I’m ashamed to have a friend that refuses to follow any logic and be safer than sorry. Maybe they’re just too afraid to admit that something bigger than their own ego is happening. These types of people always blame the government for trying to control us and lie to us yet… they probably voted which supports all governing democratic bodies currently seeking as many seats in the house as possible. The only thing wrong with democracy is the people of disbelief and fear thinking they know better than the people in charge who have made it their life’s work to understand and properly lead.

I have so much more I could say about the ridiculous posts of this friend I speak of but I fear it will only lead to an argument that makes no sense.

This is just a rant and I am sorry if I offended anyone during my bout of frustration. I also apologize if you didn’t understand my words. 😛

A Comedian.

Mr. President, comments about kung-flu won’t change the death toll of your people. Blame China all you want, it still doesn’t justify anything about your childish personality. I know you’ll never read this but people gotta vent ya know? I’m not even from the United States and ya make me wanna bitch!

The president mocked China again during the historical onset of COVID-19 in a racist effort to self-promote and change public opinion on his handling of the pandemic.

Fear Not Sadness.

The memory of your sadness will never go away. This memory can in turn make you sad again, But, fear not! Sadness is a perfectly healthy response confirming that you feel love. When someone you love gets hurt you feel sad or angry for them simply because you love them. Try to remember all sadness comes from the drive of love which can invoke a wide range of emotion. The memory of your sadness is in response of your drive to love.

Game on!

Sports and leagues are planning on opening up again with major changes being made for example, there won’t be anybody in the seats because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Golf is back while the NBA is on course to a July 31st reopening. Major League Soccer will also be making their return early next month.

The MLB is going back and forth without any real decisions being made meanwhile the NHL is a go for sure. They just need to set a date and play into the summer. They will also be choosing two buildings to play in for the season reducing the transfer of disease. There will be no fans in the seats which should make for some interesting dialogue one normally wouldn’t hear with all of that noise from the crowd being non-existent.
