Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the peek-a-boo sun shined, cool, casual, marooned island of Nantucket! Great to be with you on this Tuesday morning, The Thirty-First Day of March, 2020, broadcasting LIVE from the southern coast of a salty hamlet and hub, Historic Hyannis, Ocean Street, where eventually the people will return and life hopefully brings some semblance of normalcy;

…if that life ever looks the same again.

341 health care workers in Boston are sick and quarantined, with police, fire and other first responders facing similar fates, begging the question, ‘how are we going to deal with the coming surge of new cases without professionals steering the ship?’

This global pandemic is difficult to wrap one’s head around, for there are so many variables it measures in the Trillions.  Small decisions by citizens, like ’should I go out and get groceries?’, make up most of these and yet we still have no real leadership, coordinated, air tight directives, that may save the lives of countless Americans as we say goodbye to March for this year and hello to April and beyond.  Staffing of these medical centers nationwide will be the story going forward, with the number of deaths reaching 3003 in the U.S. thus far.  Tents in Central Park are being erected, make shift hospitals to help with the overflow at conventional medical facilities, making this all that more eerie.

The citizenry of this great Republic are holding up their end for the most part, staying home; washing hands, social distancing.  But the underlying fear most are feeling at this moment is palpable wherever one may roam, many feeling that helpless limbo of not knowing if they are doing enough, or their government is doing enough, to protect them and their families.

We are all in the same boat.

Aside from the common sense practices aforementioned, please keep in mind that this too shall pass.  Remain strong, vigilant and kind.  ‘At the end of the day’, we, lo, the World, will emerge better for this test, even with the lack of COVID-19 testing, as it forces ALL of US to real eyes just how important ALL LIFE is, bringing our better Angels out en masse…

The Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, currently working on another COVID-19 relief bill in Washington D.C., spoke on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” a few moments ago, stating the reality of what we need; testing, testing, testing, PPE and ventilators. Remember and pray for the health care workers in hospitals nationwide, indeed, the grunts, putting their own lives on the line, working exhausting hours, bravely hunkering down in bunkers on the front lines of this strange war that is not only invisible, but savage in it’s effect on older people who are terrified and imprisoned in nursing homes from coast to coast.

No one being by their side in the twilight of their lives. Their sons, daughters, grandchildren and other loved ones cannot visit, as this is now prohibited.  The very people who gave life to those same children years ago, are now left to die a cold and lonely death without the eternal gift of the human touch, little human compassion, devoid of human LOVE.

It breaks one’s heart.

This job must be tackled by intelligent, inspirational, intuitive adults who care more about people than profits. If you are not part of the solution,

you are part of the problem.

Isn’t that right Mr. President?
