The first wealth is health

Steven Parker in “Enlightenment Now” on health states that “we should not be ungrateful for all the PROGRESS that we have made fighting infections with vaccines. Estimations are that some 5 billion lives have been saved by 100+ scientists in the past.”

I believe that all Americans believe that health is wealth. I remain hopeful that our democracy will rise up from the crazy political ideologies of Left versus Right to collaborate for the best interests of all of us during these difficult times. This requires every human being to acknowledge that they have germs and to do their best to contain them, and it requires that we be respectful of small businesses by helping them survive.

God willing, we will get a vaccine and our lives will be “normal” again!
