Adapting to That COVID Booster Shot Does Make Sense
When it first came out, I was curious why in the world yet another shot in the arm was being considered .
We all were made to believe that the Pfizer and Moderna two shots were the best option. Yet that belief was rattled for many when yet a third shot was discussed. Could the Delta Variant or the idea of a really bad strain of COVID be the reason why they were even discussing a booster shot?
It’s Independence Day Weekend! A weekend we honor and celebrate the biggest goal our Founding Fathers had, breaking us free of tyrannical King George III and Great Britain. A tall task that started really in 1775, culminating with not only the birth of America, but a 245 year preservation effort on behalf of Americans today. The fight for freedom is never ending! Yet to be free and vote to declare freedom on July 2nd, 1776 (signing of the Declaration actually occurred July 4th, 1776!) our Continental Congress and Continental Army did anything but doom-scroll. …
Being Selective While Being Disabled
Next month, the disabled community works towards gaining more acceptance 31 years after the signing of the Americans With Disabilities Act. While the work is never done smashing stigma and gaining acceptance, let’s adapt the goal! Let’s be selective!
Selectivity is a topic that has come up over the last week, so I feel compelled to write about this idea! I also think God has put us where we are meant to be in life, and gives us the intuition to be selective !
I promise you , I am not jaded about people. I…
The Day After Memorial Day…
Lest we forget ‘ became a mantra nearly 20 years ago after September 11, 2001. I believe that we should never forget our fallen the day after Memorial Day.

Memorial Day weekend has always been labeled the ‘unofficial start of Summer’ and some might even call it a ‘long weekend’ . We don’t get to call it any of this without the reason for it. …
Adaptation Starts With Mom!
So where does the adapting start? That’s the main theme today. It starts with mom. It starts with the person who birthed you, I think anyway, She’s there to help you adapt from the very beginning into this world.
If you want to adapt with force, I think the first person you look to is your mother because she adapted with force way with her protective instincts kicking in right away. As soon as you were born. And by the way, that adaptive, that protective expands past the human species. It is every species, whether it’s…
I’m Vaccinated, But I Won’t Bully Those Who Aren’t Vaccinated !
This was a joyous moment! The whole process of being vaccinated was in a sense magical. Two weeks ago, I completed the final dose of Pfizer thanks to NYC Health and Hospitals+ ! Hence I am fully vaccinated! Or so I thought , I’ll get to that in a bit.
However, the walk-in process felt special and right now, walk-in appointments are available if you so desire to become vaccinated! (http://on.nyc.gov/walkupvax)
I utilize this platform to simply encourage , not judge you if you don’t want to get a…
Adapting With Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame
It’s amazing this meme above was posted a day and a year before the spire of Notre Dame burned. As kids, Notre Dame Cathedral was introduced as home of The Hunchback of Notre Dame…while the bells may be silent this truth rings true every day! Let’s smash stigmas like the Hunchback while remembering the grief of 2 yrs ago!
When I first posted the meme above in 2018, below is the message I wrote!
“Not all heroes where capes : they have power chairs and wheelchairs too; they have walkers or scooters …
Adapt For A Better Normal In 2021
I am not sure about you, but I am getting sick and tired of this talk of a ‘new normal.’ It’s never discussed in a positive , forward-looking way.
How can we be expected to adapt to ‘new’, when there is so much doom and gloom around that word.
Yes, forever being masked up anywhere we go is a gloomy thought ! Forever being told by leadership that we will never get back to the good ol’ days is depressing. …
