Today I attended the United Nations Oklahoma Chapter, Spring Luncheon. I sat between Liz and Ted, that way Liz and Ted could not flirt with each other, because Ted is a married man, so I felt I was there for a reason.
Ted could teach me a thing or two as he is a gardener and I’m not having any luck gardening where I’m at. Liz is a member of the Peace Corps and goes to Africa for six months every year, so I was in good company.
The United Nation Oklahoma Chapter, Spring Luncheon was held in Oklahoma as it always is. In Oklahoma City at the Raindrop Turkish House. We were served some Turkish food. Soup, bread covered stuff, lettuce, rice and other stuff I don’t know what it was, but it was real good and I ate every bit of it.
A group was invited to open up a can of worms. The shotatlife.org. Who is shooting at life? Oh vaccines. I’ve been told vaccines can kill you, and I can believe that because I’ve gotten over a hundred of them while in the Navy, so I hate vaccines. We always had to get some kind of shot before we went ashore. I haven’t died, but everybody knows I’m crazy, so I can believe it. They confessed that some vaccines contain a preservative and that this preservative contained mercury. But they explained that this was not the same kind of mercury you get from fish, coal powered power plants or energy saving light bulbs. This is a kind of mercury they explained that does not build up in the body and stored their to make you sick and that there was rigorous testing proving there was no evidence that these vaccines cause Autism.
Mothers would walk for miles to get their children vaccinated so that they wouldn’t get sick. These vaccines prevented sickness and death and that every mother has a right to decide whether or not to have their children vaccinated. They should not be prevented from having their children vaccinated for their protection due to rumors. I have to agree, mothers have an instinct, a powerful instinct that drives them to walk for miles for their children. Science is not always right and sometimes the numbers are fudged but rumors aren’t always trustworthy, so lets put some faith in the instincts of mothers.
Sometimes things don’t work the way we hoped and we become angry and frustrated and want to blame something. On February 15, 2003 the whole world had the largest peace protest ever in the history of the world I am told and sadly, we are still at war. Those protesters must have done something wrong because they failed. Nobody believes that, that would be ridiculous. So why is it that when The United Nations fails to create world peace we blame them?
Good intentions should always be judged as good whether or not they are successful or not, because they are not bad intentions which always leads to something terrible.
Just because someone has a different idea about how to achieve world peace than you do does not mean that they are doing something wrong.
What I’m trying to say is. We need to always remember to judge the bad people for being bad rather than the good people who are trying to do good in this world. We all need each other to change this world. We need to support one another and not knock each other down.
I would also like to add that yes, someone complimented me on my sideburns. Why can’t people just see me for me, why do they only notice me for my sideburns. Oh well, it happens. Some things you just have to tolerate.
