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.
yes and the beat goes on..Coming to America and I’m not talking about the movie either.
Only a matter of time. See tag.
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.
We stand on Your promises for miraculous healings for these courageous health workers.
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
You know, that is a thought. Don’t post it too widely, ok?
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.
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...
Amen, and great comment. Different kinds of heroes. You’re still one.
That cat's ben out of the bag since Tom Clancy's novel dealing with such a scenario, published more than a decade ago.
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.
And thank you for your service, sir.
Different kinds of heroes. Youre still one.
