Blowing in the Wind

  1. At the moment a local acquaintance is struggling with terminal cancer at 53. She put off going to the doctor for nearly a year working 6 days a week to pay her mortgage and support her three kids. It was too hard to take time off for a medical appointment. Now it’s all over and she’s struggling to make sure they don’t lose the house when she passes. She’s been given 2 months.

  2. This is so sad. This should not be happening anywhere in the world today.

    I cannot fathom how people (if they are people) can be so self-oriented, so selfish and lacking in compassion for others. There is more than enough of everything to go around, including good medical care. But the infantile-like, greed driven few would rather see people suffer and die than part with just the tiniest bit of wealth and power.

    This is why I am so angry so often. If it were a matter of not having the ways and means to care for everyone, then I could deal with it, as we all would have to do. But this is not the case, as you know all too well, better than me.

    I am sorry for your friend and children, and for you. I know what it is like to be around death and feel helpless.
