Thunderdome

Music has always moved me.   It’s so very connected to my heart.  Back when I was 15, this song came out and it was part of the sound track for a movie with Mel Gibson called  “MadMax Beyond Thunderdome.”    It was a post-apocalyptic film which I never really understood too back much then.   All I remember was Tina Turner and her song which I played over and over in my room as teenagers often do.

Today the song came back to me, I’m not certain why.  It wasn’t on the radio or anything.  The lovely Miss Tina Turner’s voice haunted me in a way as I began to think about how we are sort of living in our own modern day Thunder dome.   The dome of quarantine, of isolation, of confinement, and at times of paralyzing fear.

I think that Tina Turner’s lyrics are as pertinent today as they were back then, perhaps even more so.   We must all answer the questions she poses in her song..

We don’t need another hero.   Our heroes are the doctors, nurses, health care workers, paramedics, EMS, police officers, firefighters, the entire frontline system that are fighting to save lives in the trenches every day while risking their own lives to do so.   There isn’t a thank you big enough to wrap around them all.

If you are not my age then you are not likely to have heard this song.  So I encourage you to take a listen.  If you were someone who lived through the 80’s and are hearing this song again, please take another listen.  Read the lyrics.   They take on a new meaning.   At least they have for me.

Be well, take care of yourself and each other.   ❤️

We Don’t Need Another Hero

Song by :  Tina Turner

Out of the ruins
Out from the wreckage
Can’t make the same mistake this time
We are the children
The last generation (the last generation)
We are the ones they left behind
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change it
Living under the fear ’til nothing else remains
We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome
Looking for something
We can rely on
There’s got to be something better out there
Love and compassion
Their day is coming (coming)
All else are castles built in the air
And I wonder when we are ever gonna change it
Living under the fear ’til nothing else remains
All the children say
We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome
So what do we do with our lives?
We leave only a mark.
Will our story shine like a light?
Or end in the dark?
Is it all or nothing?
We don’t need another hero
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome
All the children say
We don’t need another hero (we don’t need another hero)
We don’t need to know the way home
All we want is life beyond the Thunderdome

It doesn’t this shock me that politicians are voicing their opinions as strongly as the disinfectants we now need to spray.   Many of their own colleagues and friends  are now testing positive for the virus.

It’s about time our Congress brings forth how this Communist regime’s COVID-19 debacle,  as well as the propaganda they continue to spill.   I heard late last night about a “second wave” of “imported cases”  of the novel Coronavirus?  How are we to believe that they never contained the first wave? that it never left!  They have lost all credibility after their first cover-up and lies.   Do they think we are dumb?  Oh wait, maybe they do.

FYI – Many ways to help flatten the curve

Please take pre-cautions, keep yourself safe while handling cardboard packages delivered to your home.    Use gloves and let them sit in direct sunlight for a day or two if you don’t have gloves.  Or the canned goods you bought at the grocery store.   If you don’t have disinfectant wipes, let them sit a few days.  Someone may have coughed one them as they walked by the aisle.   Not everyone practices hygiene.   They just don’t.

There’s more to keeping safe than just social distancing.   Stay safe everyone.  ❤️

PPE is MIA and MD’s are told to STFU

It doesn’t surprise me one bit that Hospital Administrators would tell physicians to shut their mouths to media about the extent to which their PPE is missing, unless the HA’s have already decided to go forward with that information publicly.  Otherwise, yes it would be a rogue decision on that physician’s part and would cause tremendous fear in that community.

Of course their job could be lost, and we all know what happens to whistleblowers.  They end up losing their job for other reasons….  It happens all the time.
