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!

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.

“Deprived of Their Childhood” – Pope Francis

Friday June 12, 2020 makes World Day Against Child Labour. “In the current health emergency situation, in several countries many children and young people are forced into jobs that are inappropriate for their age in order to help their families in conditions of extreme poverty.” Pope Francis explained.

“We are all responsible for the scourge of child labour.” His Holiness appealed to the international community to protect boys and girls who are forced into child labour losing their childhoods and more.

Vatican City Remains Healthy

Vatican City currently has no confirmed cases of coronavirus said The Director of the Holy See Press Office, Matteo Bruni, announcing that the last person in the Vatican to have been reported sick in the past few weeks also tested negative for COVID-19.

This simply proves that it is possible to defeat the transmission of the virus through proper measures that we’ve all been learning about over the last several months. This good news comes to us after a statement released on Saturday from the Holy See.
