WARNINGS

WARNINGS WILL BE OUR DAILY WISDOM WORD TODAY.  WE GET WARNINGS, BUT SOMETIMES, WE MAKE A CHOICE.  WE DON’T TAKE THESE WARNINGS SERIOUSLY.  WARNINGS IN FACT, WITH AN NUMBER OF SITUATIONS ARE GIVEN THROUGHOUT OUR LIVES BUT TO RECEIVE THEM, WER MUST BE TUNED IN.  IT IS VERY MUCH LIKE A TELEVISION SET AND A REMOTE CONTROL.  IF YOU DON’T HAVE THE REMOTE CONTROL TUNED IN TO THE STATION YOU SHOULD BE WATCHING, YOU WILL NOT SEE THE PROGRAM YOUR SUPPOSED TO BE WATCHING TO SEE THE NECESSARY WARNING SIGNS YOU NEED TO SEE.  

IT IS SAD LIFE HAS TO BE FULL OF WARNINGS.  SOMETIMES, THESE WARNINGS WE SIMPLY DON’T PAY ATTENTION TO.  WE HAD WARNINGS SO MUCH EARLIER ABOUT A  PANDEMIC BEING INEVITABLE AND THE STOCKPILE  IS AN INDICATOR OF THIS.  PRESIDENT TRUMP TRIED BLAMED THE PREVIOUS PRESIDENCY BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT STOCKPILE WAS COMPLETELY UNPREPARED FOR AN EMERGENCY. A REPORTER POINTED OUT HE HAS HELD THE OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT FOR THE 31/2 YEARS AND SHOULD TAKE SOME ACCOUNTABILITY.  RATHER THAN DO THIS, PRESIDENT TRUMP INSTEAD, SHIFTED THE PERSPECTIVE OF WHAT THE  GOVERNMENT STOCKPILE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE USED FOR, SAYING THAT “IT WAS THERE AS A LAST RESORT, AND IT WAS NOT THE GOVERNMENT’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PROVIDE ADDITIONAL SUPPLIES ON A FIRST OPTION BASIS.” HE ALSO MENTIONED THE GOVERNMENTS STOCKPILE SHOULD BE USED AS A BACKUP OPTION AND NOT A MAIN ONE. 

BEFORE GOING ANY FURTHER, LET’S TAKE A LOOK AT THE WEBSTER DEFINITION OF THE DAILY WISDOM WORDS DEFINITION OF WARNING’S AND THE WEBSTER DEFINITION.  

WEBSTER DICTIONARY MEANING OF WARNINGS-1.  A STATEMENT OR EVENT THAT INDICATES A. POSSIBLE OR IMPENDING DANGER, PROBLEM OR OTHER UNPLEASANT SITUATION.  2.  CAUTIONARY ADVICE  3.  AN EXPERIENCE OR SIGHT THAT SERVES AS A CAUTIONARY EXAMPLE TO OTHERS.

DAILY WISDOM WORD DEFINITION-A SIGNAL THAT PREEMPTS TROUBLE OF SOME KIND.  2.  A SIGNAL GIVEN FROM OUR MIND AND BODY THAT WE ARE IN SOME WAY HEADED TOWARDS SOME KIND OF ISSUE OR POTENTIAL PROBLEM.  

WARNINGS WERE SHOWN IN MANY WAYS TO US ABOUT THE COVID-19 VIRUS WE ARE DEALING WITH NOW.  BEFORE THE PUBLIC KNEW OF THIS, A PARTICULAR VIRUS HAD BEEN IDENTIFIED.  THE VIRUS STARTED OUT WITH ONE CASE IN WAUN, CHINA, AND IT WAS TOO LATE.  RECORDS INDICATE THERE WAS A MEETING WITH OFFICIALS HELD IN APPROXIMATELY NOVEMBER OR DECEMBER, 2019 DOING A DRY RUN TO SEE HOW WE WOULD HANDLE A PANDEMIC AND WE FAILED MISERABLY.  THE PRESIDENT WAS NOTIFIED OF THIS INFORMATION AND GOT FURIOUS ABOUT THE MEETING AND PREDICTIONS.  HE BASICALLY IGNORED THE SITUATION, CHOOSING TO PUT OFF SHARING ANY OF THE NEW FOUND INFORMATION WITH THE CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES. WE ONLY RECEIVED THE INFORMATION HE WAS GIVEN TWO MONTHS PRIOR, AS IT WAS ALREADY HAPPENING,  LEAVING US WITH LITTLE OR NO TIME TO PREPARE.  

HE THEN PLACED OUR VICE-PRESIDENT IN CHARGE OF SITUATION, AND COMMANDED HIS “TROOP” BACK DOWN SUCH AS REPRESENTATIVES OF THE WORLD HEALTH ORGANIZATION AND THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL.  I DON’T THINK IT IS FAIR TO PLACE ALL THE BLAME ON “ONE INDIVIDUAL” WHEN SO MANY OF THE TOP OFFICIALS COULD HAVE MADE CHANGES ALTERNATIVELY IN PLACE OF TRUMP’S OPINION, BUT CHOSE NOT TO DO SO.  I CERTAINLY DON’T REMEMBER READING MUCH, IF ANYTHING IN NEWSPAPERS ABOUT A PANDEMIC IN NOVEMBER OR DECEMBER.  THERE MAY HAVE BEEN MENTION OF IT, BUT IN SUCH A SMALL WAY, PEOPLE LIKE MYSELF, DIDN’T TAKE IT SERIOUSLY OR KNEW NOTHING ABOUT IT AT ALL.  THIS EXPLAINS WHY WE ARE JUST RECENTLY DID WHAT WE SHOULD HAVE DONE, WHICH WAS BEGIN THE MITIGATION PHASE OF A WORLD VIRAL ATTACK , AND “SOCIAL DISTANCING” NEEDED TO BE PUT IN PLACE TO STOP THE DISEASE FROM SPREADING.  THIS IS NORMALLY WHAT HAPPENS IN STAGE TWO OF DEALING WITH A PANDEMIC, BUT WE WERE SO FAR INTO IT, WE FOUND OURSELVES SKIPPING OVER STAGE ONE WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN EDUCATING AND WARNING THE PUBLIC OF THE CURRENT SITUATION.  I DON’T BELIEVE IN LOOKING BACKWARDS.  WHAT HAS BEEN DONE IS DONE.  MY WHOLE POINT IN BRINGING THIS UP IS THE WARNING SIGNS WERE THERE, PRELIMINARILY.  I FIRMLY BELIEVE, IN ABOUT 95% OF CASES OF TROUBLE, THE WARNING SIGNS ARE ALWAYS THERE, WHETHER IT BE A PERSONAL THREAT OR A PUBLIC ONE.  WE CHOOSE NOT TO SEE THEM EVEN WHEN ALARM BELLS ARE GOING OFF INSIDE OF US, OR IN THE WORLD AROUND US.  

ALL OF THIS IS MY PARTICULAR THOUGHT PROCESS AND WRITING IT FOR YOU TO READ IS MY WAY OF “STIMULATING OUR THINKING”, SO MAYBE NEXT TIME, WE CATCH THE WARNING AND PAY ATTENTION TO IT AND THE SIGNS WE WILL HAVE WARNINGS OF, BUT INSTEAD, WE  MAKE A CHOICE TO PAY ATTENTION.  GOD BLESS YOU ALL AND HAPPY EASTER…SAMANTHA
