Worst Ebola outbreak in history

Writebol, who serves as SIM's personnel coordinator, has been living in Monrovia with her husband, David, according to SIM's website. The Charlotte, North Carolina, residents have been in Liberia since August 2013, according to the blog Writebols2Liberia. They have two adult children.

And in my mind, these are the real heroes.

To knowingly go into that situation, and face such a horrible disease, with certain death from it, outpaces my pitiful little attempts at being a soldier.

As a soldier, I knew that my training and ability would give me a hell of a shot at surviving, and that is why, on a personal level, I always rejected that label, but these people of mercy, even with the best training in the world, cannot fight against such a horrid thing.

And to know that once they have tested positive for it, death is bearing down.

As far as their political bent, I care less. I only hope they have voted for God.

Sooner or later, a cure will be found...or a vaccine or a surefire method of killing it, and that will be because of these brave souls that went into the very pit of hell to care for those that are dieing from this, and then to die themselves.

May God save their souls.

Agree with your post except for one tiny thing. You're willing to face the fire fight head on as a soldier. Granted you are well trained to minimize the risk of “failure” but you signed up and did your duty. That's more than 98% of the US population today.

Just one flight away! But have no fears. Obama’s highly efficient Departments of Homeland Security, HHS and the CDC are on the job.

Thinking evil here. If I were a Jihadist super planner, I would put a few infected Muslim brothers on flights and send them to Europe and USA. They would not be easy to detect since the incubation period is three weeks. Just sayin.

Father God,

We stand on Your promises for miraculous healings for these courageous health workers.

Psalm 41

1 Blessed are those who have regard for the weak;
the Lord delivers them in times of trouble.
2 The Lord protects and preserves them—
they are counted among the blessed in the land—
he does not give them over to the desire of their foes.
3 The Lord sustains them on their sickbed
and restores them from their bed of illness.

Scriptures say that every name must bow to the name of Jesus. Ebola, we dismantle your assignment in the name of Jesus. By Jesus’ stripes we were healed. You make a way where there is no way.

In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen

since August 2013

So about 8 months, just like Brantley. They need to rotate them out at 6 months.

Because of their enthusiastic support for Obama biological warfare on the U.S., I call all horrible infectious diseases—T.B., polio, Ebola, etc.—O’Malley-Gomez Disease.

Bring Out Your Dead

Post to me or FReep mail to be on/off the Bring Out Your Dead ping list.

The purpose of the “Bring Out Your Dead” ping list (formerly the “Ebola” ping list) is very early warning of emerging pandemics, as such it has a high false positive rate.

So far the false positive rate is 100%.

At some point we may well have a high mortality pandemic, and likely as not the “Bring Out Your Dead” threads will miss the beginning entirely.

*sigh* Such is life, and death...

That cat's ben out of the bag since Tom Clancy's novel dealing with such a scenario, published more than a decade ago.

That thought expressed in #8 is a very excellent reason why borders should be closely monitored. What we have at our southern border is just the opposite of what needs to be done. And all the war mongering and horrific living conditions and refugee camps all over the world? It's a miracle there hasn't been a global pandemic.

One can't help but fear what civilization could be sliding into. Stable governments and secure borders might be the only salvation people can have.
