Breaking Taboo: Ebola

Look, I feel I need to get this out there because I’m sick of paranoid people running around bumping their gums with useless words that just scare others. I’m also sick of our federal government just egging them on.

Ebola is scary. Yes, I will admit that. It has a 50/50 mortality rate, here in the United States. Ebola is fast, mean and deadly and the United States should NOT have allowed it brought over here in the first place. It should have stayed over there, where it belongs. However, it’s here. There is nothing we can do about it except learn what we can.

Ebola is zoonotic, meaning it came from animals. Bats in particular. That’s how this outbreak started, the bats bit the animals, the humans ate the animals, the humans got Ebola.

Ebola can only be spread by direct contact with bodily fluids. Vomit, feces, blood etc, etc. If you don’t have any open cuts on your skin, just don’t put your hands hear your eyes,nose or mouth. Yes door knobs and toilet seats can have the Ebola Virus on them. Know how to prevent catching anything? Washing your hands and hand sanitizer. Lysol if you’re paranoid. You shouldn’t be putting your hands around or in any hole in your face often, so don’t do it now especially. Keep your kids clean, always enforce hand washing and deter nose picking.
We all know a kid has to try picking their nose at least once in life.

Ebola seems like the flu but it’s a really crappier version. You end up bleeding out of every hole you can, you immune system is shot to hell, and you can’t really do much. Go to the doctor when something doesn’t seem right. An ounce of prevention is a pound of cure, and check ups are good for you anyway.

If these facts and tips don’t alleviate your worries about Ebola, you could always be a hermit. Ebola won’t ever get you if you’re alone, right?

Breaking Taboo: ISIS, Your love is my poison

ISIS, or ISIL as some politicians call them, has beheaded four people. Let’s just call it five for the sake of it, since our president hasn’t done anything to save the other beheaded Individuals, including American Steven Sotloff.

Be warned, I don’t like our president or his policies. If you can’t handle that, turn away and read another post. Maybe one about bunnies, or unicorns.

Now before we proceed further not all Muslims are bad. These members of Islam are radical and extremists. Be careful what you say and how you categorize people.Now, ISIS seems to have an issue with the western world,it’s structure and quite frankly dying. Yeah, can’t exactly blame them. Dying isn’t on my to-do list either. However, killing innocent people, simply because of their nationality or religion is quite frankly stupid. What’s even more stupid is the fact that our president is being extremely relaxed with how this situation is handled. How many people have to die before something is truly done? How many terrorists get inside this country before we do something? How many innocent Americans have to die before our president grows a pair of balls and says the hell with political correctness and making people happy?

When does this end? Why does their love of destruction and death still continue to be our poison Mr. President?

Breaking Taboo: The concept of compassion

Life is all about the little things for me. The way I hear pitter patter of little footsteps on the hard wood floor in the morning. The excitement in the faces of my children when I walk into their rooms. The kiss goodbye from my husband in the morning before he leaves for work. To me, I’d rather enjoy the little things, more than the huge events. Why? Life is composed of little things, much more than the big ones. Why let those go?

The average human being lives about 70 to 75 years. That information in mind, we as human beings have turned towards enjoying the negative, versus enjoying the positive. Why do I say that? Simple, it’s more exciting. It makes our adrenaline rush in anger, it gives us that ‘high’. We as human beings enjoy chaos. Why? That’s a question a lot of people want answered, but don’t want changed. How do I know this? Look on social media sites, look on the news, look on television in general. You see more murder and hospital shows popping up every six months than you do anything else. You see murders, rapes, mass murders, child abuse, and other heinous crimes plastered over the news. Social media loves drama and gossip. Positive events just don’t create that kind of story, that kind of interest. Sad to say, but it’s true.

So what happens when someone tries to create a positive situation, a positive scenario. It’s looked at with smiles and cheer for a few days, and with time it’s washed away like it never happened. It’s positive, therefore it doesn’t have a stigma that stays with it for a long time. However, like it’s bad and ugly counterpart the negative, it can stay for years, maybe lifetimes. When someone tries to change this, they’re either laughed at or ignored. What happened to love? What happened to the concept of compassion? It seems to me, that with time those things are vanishing faster and faster every generation. That, is a very frightening thing to think about for our children.

My advice, don’t give up on it. Don’t be afraid to hear some backlash. Don’t be afraid to stand up for what you believe in or to spread a smile. Don’t let the positive in the world wash away, we need more people to bring it back to where it’s supposed to be. Let’s make positive things be at the top of all our newsfeeds.
