Great Falls

What does this have to do with the Daily Prompt: grit? And with Great Falls, for that matter.

I took this at Great Falls, Virginia, on a hike. And even something as delicate as a butterfly wants to survive in our world.

I will be calling Congress again today, do not pass a bill to take away more health care form US citizens. Wake up, US citizens, our health care system is currently built on greed and profit. Let’s join the rest of humanity with medicare for all, single payer, instead of continuing to enrich insurance companies and healthcare corporations….

  2. Thank you for your activism. I’m trying to explain this craziness to my children and they don’t get it.

    What I have learned during the past six years is that politicians who want to be popular instead of caring for their residents are in control of whether my daughter can receive speech and occupational therapy. This affects her ability to learn and live throughout her life. Without the expansion of healthcare in Ohio, her medication for epilepsy would not have been covered, her follow up care costs and testing over the past three years would have been crippling since I am a disabled mom on a fixed income.

    What about people with cancer, transplants, Down’s syndrome, MS, MD, Cerebral Palsy, Cystic Fibrosis, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, dementia, depression, HIV, or one bad car accident. I’m ashamed that our government really just doesn’t care. Dead people can’t vote.

    Sorry for being long-winded.

      In the end corporations can’t vote. When the US population says: medicare for all, the politicians will race to do it. Fight for your daughter, for your neighbor, for care to be more than the “right” not to be turned away from the emergency room, where they will not treat cancer or high blood pressure or alcoholism or depression…..

      • So many directions that are disturbing to me all at the same time. Healthcare, corruption, insensitive politicians, ICE crackdowns on taxpaying non US citizens that are breaking up families, conservative middle class people who feel that migrant workers are stealing jobs. There don’t seem to be angry unemployed people looking to move to the country to be farm laborers.
