Where do I come in the debate about health care? Firmly on the side of everyone in this country having it. I believe it is a national shame that we have 45 million people without health care. There are many nations ahead of us who devote part of their national revenues for this very purpose. Please don’t get me started on some of the stories people sling about long lines, not getting care, not getting operations, etc. Because they live in Canada or England or France. Just read this story about medical care in this country – a two-door policy for those who have insurance and those who don’t. Good grief! How elitist; how demeaning!
Imagine that you are someone without care, or perhaps you already are. This is a situation which I find intolerable and steps must be taken to change. Change, yes, is always difficult. I have long since grown tired of the feeling which seems to exist with some individuals that they have what they want and need, and it’s just too bad if others don’t. I don’t believe we are in this life to take and take. LIfe is so much more than acquisition. You can live on little – I know, because I have in my lifetime. I am fortunate today to have what I need, without extravagance. My parents brought me up with the belief that we help, not hinder, one another. I think they had the right idea.
