Just wondering out loud …
Thursday, I received my first dose of the Moderna vaccine. None of the vaccines are 100 percent effective. That is one reason why we still need to wear masks until everyone is vaccinated — but I don’t see that happening.
Because I’m prone to allergies, I had the vaccination in a Prompt Care facility and had to wait a half hour after the vaccination before I could leave. While waiting, I wondered if America is doing the right thing by sending vaccinations to other countries now.
According to the CDC, no one knows how long the vaccinations will protect us. Three months? Six months? Twelve months? More than a year? No one knows. We’ve not had and tested Covid-19 vaccinations long enough to know. So, what happens if we find that vaccinations only protect us for 6 months, and we don’t have a supply to re-vaccinate all Americans who want to be vaccinated?
There have been times when I’ve had need to tell others that an order of the court is more powerful than the doctrines of religion. Religion gives believers choices with some consequences that we never see while in the flesh. Orders of the court however, have consequences in the here and now.
Megan Elizabeth Everett (22) and Robert Baumann have court ordered shared custody of Lily, their 2-year old daughter. Pursuant to that order, Robert dropped Lily off at her mom’s, who was suppose to return Lily. Megan didn’t. She wrote Robert a note saying:
“You are a great dad. If I let them take her and vaccinate her and brainwash her, I wouldn’t be doing what’s right. I cannot let a judge tell me how my daughter should be raised. We will miss you. But I had to leave.”
