Everyday I wake up wondering what's new in the news. This morning, 4 things jumped out, in about 5 minutes of news.
Trump questioned whether we should delay the presidential election. (that angered and sort of horrified me)
Herman Cain, who got Covid after attending the Tulsa rally, died this morning. (that saddened and frustrated me)
We've reached over 150,00 deaths in the U.S. (that worried me briefly. Then I worried that I'm getting numb to numbers)
Tex. Rep. Gohmer tested positive after refusing to wear a mask on Capitol Hill. (that baffled and annoyed me)
After watching 5 minutes of stressful news, I watched the memorial service for Rep. John Lewis. After frowning at the news on my TV, I found myself smiling... at a memorial service.
Three former presidents honored the Civil Rights icon. I smiled at the stories and I cringed at the reminders of what he put himself through, in his 80 years. It took a lot of Good Trouble... over 40 arrests, to accomplish what he did.
At the end I teared up at "We Shall Overcome" and I had to smile again at the special song, written for the memorial. "Good Trouble".
Rest in Peace, Mr. Lewis.
Cancer to Covid
I started this complaining list/blog, in May 2016. I posted 200 gripes about my breast cancer and then I was done.
On March 17, 2020, I started venting all over again, when another disease (starting with a C) interfered with my life. Only this time, it was affecting more than me.
Coronavirus and Cancer! Both are evil, but neither can totally get me down... if I vent! I hope with Covid, I run out of complaints before 200!
