An Open Letter

An open letter to Federal, State, County, and Local government employees, and to all people in the United States of America.

We are in crisis. We are in a global pandemic that is unlike any in this century, perhaps in any century. Our leaders cannot guide us out of this. Some who could guide us are not in a position to do so. Many who are in a position to do so are not capable. Some who are in the best position to do so refuse, perhaps to avoid responsibility, perhaps to capitalize on the crisis. Many leaders failed in response to this crisis. Many citizens chose to follow these failed leaders. Because of this, we are all in danger. We must save ourselves.

For this reason, I implore you to ignore anyone who fails to recognize the severity of the situation or who fails to follow the recommendations of the scientific and medical communities. I implore you to do what is right, no matter the consequence. This is our only recourse. No one can save us from this crisis. We must save ourselves. We have no other choice.

If you are a person in the United States, your job is clear. Wear a mask, avoid crowds, and keep your distance. This may be all you can do, but it is enough. If you are a federal, state, county, or local government employee, you are still a person in the United States. You must still wear a mask, avoid crowds, and keep your distance. Do it with conviction.

However, if you are a government employee at any level and the leadership in your branch of government fails to recognize the severity of the situation or fails to follow the recommendations of the scientific and medical communities then you must make noise, question your supervisors, or alert the media. Our only way out of this failure of leadership is to expose the failed leadership at every level of government to the sanitizing rays of sunlight. We need you to do what is right, to do it right now, and to do it now more than ever.

This crisis will pass. We will eventually make a final tally. Future historians will assess our response, but not favorably. I hope you and yours are still here, some of mine are not. If not, rest your souls, and I hope that you chose to do the right thing. Wear a mask, avoid crowds, keep your distance, and expose those who will not. It is that simple.

  1. You can urge its development by repotting the Xmas Cactus in a pot which goes to least
    a couple of inches smaller sized than the present one you’re utilizing.
    You need to unbox your plants promptly when you get them, and
    pot them. Fall Delight as well as Matrona have thick,
    fleshy environment-friendly leaves that keep readily available water
    for the plants to utilize in the future. When repotting, utilize a container that has a drain hole and goes to the
    very least 1 to 2 inches bigger than the baby room container.
    The Chihuahuan Desert obtains a little over 9 inches of rain yearly
    – a spit in the sea compared to what the green landscapes the majority of us call residence
    get. Domesticated chinchillas have fragile digestive systems; and contrasted to their wild relatives, they are unable to digest
    a lot of the food they eat while in their all-natural environment.
    After several samplings were imported to
    the USA for reproducing, the pet chinchillas that we have today stay herbivores,
    but a lot of their diet regimen has altered.
