High school dropout rate in decline

‪High school dropout rate in decline https://www.jpost.com/Israel-News/High-school-dropout-rate-in-decline-602939‬

10-25-2019. THOUGHTS FOR TODAY.

10-25-2019. THOUGHTS FOR TODAY.  Heart hurts.   

Losing people in USA daily due to lack of healthcare, 

police killings, 

lack of access to clean water, 

flakes of lead paint, 

lack of housing, 

people in administrations at the city, county, state, and federal levels not giving a damn about the poor - only in building new communities for those well off, 

no support for the education of the poor, 

MINORITIES/WOMEN NOT VOTING - in spite of the fact people died too give US this precious gift, 

schools shaming kids because their parents can't or hadn't paid their lunch fees,

trafficking of people,

lack of compassion for immigrants - although each of us are immigrants, EXCEPT FOR US DESCENDANTS OF SLAVES,

no support for Native Americans - further erosions of their land in violation of formal treaties, keeping them in poverty on the reservations and if they leave the reservations they receive no help,

closing of mental institutions in the the 1970's because the order of nuns were dying off and heaven forbid cities taking up the cause to help heal their residents,

Those advocating on behalf the causes/ministries above are getting fewer and fewer thus straining their physical/mental strength.  

My parents taught us to give back, no matter how little we had.  Most in the generations after us (1950/1960's babies) have no desire to connect with and/or have compassion for those in the situations noted above.

WELL LET ME GET OFF MY HORSE - JUST PISSED!

HEART ACHES!  NO AMOUNT OF PRAYER WILL HELP IF THE PEOPLE WHO FEELS THE URGING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES NOT MOVE OUT AND GET ON THE BATTLEFIELD OF THE LORD!

Myself and others who moved out are stretched financially, spiritually, physically, mentally doing God's work.

WE NEED MORE PEOPLE ONNTHE BATTLEFIELD!

Churches must send people out of the walls - specifically young adults- to address these needs!

Our old guard is dying off!

I AM SO MUCH BETTER!

09-23-2019 THANK GOD FOR BLESSINGS! THE LIFE OF A DIALYSIS PATIENT. This past Thursday after was like any other afternoon. We finished dialyzing at 311 p.m. Irv always stay in the room to ensure the bleeding stopped. So he left to go sit in family room and watch tv. Approximately 415 I started feeling really bad!!! My chest was hurting and my left arm hurt also!!!!! Called Irv back into the room. I could NOT talk straight. HE Called the EMTs. They came and left. It seems Irv would not let them look at me probably because of their lackadaisical attitude . Signed the paper and told them they could go. Irv took me to ATHENS LIMESTONE HOSPITAL. Was there until ~10pm. Told me that maybe I'm dry. But, Janice always knows when she's DRY!!!!! I was unable to talk or think straight until after 6 p.m. My thinking slowed so much, which comes along with Lupus and Dialysis. But this episode was a first. I have eaten little Fri - Sunday. Did eat a complete meal today. I'm desperately needing a kidney. But, I THANK GOD FOR LIFE TO SEE MY SON MARRIED AND GIVEN THE GIFT OF 8 CHILDREN! His wife is a great mother. My grandkids have lots of smiles and effort in school. They are truly a blessing, like my son. I was told I would have no kids. But, GOD! Now you know why I love them so much! Getting a kidney would let me see more of my family! THANK YOU JESUS!

UPDATE. 11-10-2018

UPDATE FOR FAMILY!
Well, experienced a lot in 2018. Two operations oh my venous fistula! Hospitalized below bp went too low. Was acting crazy and screaming for Irv In the treatment room. Don't know. Why my bp dropped so low That I lost reality for an hour! But now on meds to raise bp. Still don't know why it dropped. Had two heart Caths. Still no answer. Stomach has been bothering me a lot. Finally, after 3 months, seeing doc next week. Ugh!!!!! Of course I have to see sinus doc again. Had sinus surgery in April, with no relief!!!!! Ugh! Ugh!

Good news: Kidney Transplant Clinics in Birmingham and Nashville will evaluate me for transplant. I am still raising money.

Irv and I enjoying retirement! Thinking about a day trip. Hmmmmmm. We have more aches between us than an entire nursing home! But we SURVIVE! 😆
Another day's journey and we're Glad about it!
