The arc is long.
Author: Raine    Date: 07/12/2021 13:05:58

Summer 0f 2020 was a long hot season filled with lockdowns, protests, and deep uncertainty. In the wake of the murder of Goerge Floyd, Brianna Taylor, and many other people of color, police reform and racial equality was at the forefront of most of the nation and even the world. Social Justice was on everyone's mind.

Fast forward to this summer. We have vaccines. The country is opening up. The arc of justice is still long, and it's still being sought.

This summer, it's filled with a backlash of white supremacists, unlike anything I have ever witnessed in my life. They are openly rooting for the demise of this country because for them -- another person's equality means they lose some of their privileges. The sad part is that they don't see that in themselves.

This summer, there is toxicity in the air. I don't like it. I am apprehensive as to where this is going. I hope it won't lead to a winter of discontent.

That's all I have for today. Welcome to a new week.

Peace & Love,
Raine

So my Prince William County and the City of Manassas STILL have not reached 50% full vaccination average and yet most everyone is running around without masks

The recommendation, published Sunday by the ministry, clarified that the goal of the new program was to raise antibody levels among immunocompromised citizens — including cancer patients and recipients of liver transplants, and others who data shows have recently exhibited weakened vaccine protection — and that it had still not made a decision on administering third shots for the general adult population.

Hanging in there mostly. Waiting for things to happen and not being able to do much is frustrating.
