Immunizations aren’t just for children

Earlier this month, about 30,000 of our county's population returned to school. Whether starting kindergarten, returning for their seventh grade year, or heading off to college, there is a lot that goes into preparing a student to start school. School supplies, new shoes, uniforms, new technology, new backpacks and lunchboxes, dorm room fixtures… the list goes on and on. On that list sometimes is a visit to your pediatrician for an update to your child's immunizations. It should be on all our lists, whether we have small children, grown children or no children.

The new face of evil

As Hannah Arendt foresaw, we are once again up against the question of evil. An American photojournalist, James Foley, was presented to the camera and methodically decapitated. The instrument was not the ax reserved for royalty or the whooshing blade prompted by that reformer Joseph-Ignace Guillotin, but an ordinary looking knife. Death would be neither swift nor painless. This, somewhere in the bleached desert, was pure evil.

No color in war

Soldiers of color, be it white, black, red, brown or yellow, have one human characteristic in common: we all bleed the same color. The warrior covering your back most likely wears the same color uniform, yet his or her race, creed or color has no relevance on the value of training or their desire to simply do what is right.

It is a potential killer whose numbers rival the deadly Ebola virus and it doesn't get near the attention it should. Unlike the dreaded illness currently ravaging West Africa this is one with a quick cure.
