Poverty. No child or adult should go hungry or live on the streets. The United States is one of the richest counties, but yet our food banks are empty, our children and millions of adults cannot afford to pay their health coverage and thus do not go to doctors for their illnesses and many live in deplorable conditions, on the streets or drug/roach infested motels. It should not be that way. My other answer would be illness/sickness. With all our medical science we should by now have cures for Cancer, Diabetes, Heart Disease and various mental illnesses. I believe there are cures out there, however that would mean our pharmaceutical companies and doctors wouldn't be rich if these cures were released to society.
I was there a while ago and saw cockroaches and mosquitos with white angel wings! I just wonder if they bite over there and suck angel blood. I was so scared to find out that I jumped down from heaven and came back to earth!
I have a really wonderful stay over Christmas with friends in Pangasinan region. Blessings to you in Philippines. Rice, banana, corn, goats, cows, chicken, ducks, geese,...........what more could we want in life? ! Only tricycles and jeepnees, maybe.
My mother's side of the family are from Pangasinan. I enjoy going north every once in a while and enjoy the sights. There are rice farms everywhere where you see cows, carabaos, ducks, chicken, and goats roaming around the fields. I stay in the city but I enjoy farm life as I am a farmer, too. Which reminds me to write about GMO seeds and climate change and its effect on farmers.
When I woke my Mom up from a nap for lunch today, she was disorientated for about 15 minutes. She asked me where she was because she didn't know. She looked confused, scared and had tears in her eyes. I cannot imagine how scary that would have been without someone at home to comfort her and tell her she must have been having a dream.
If that ever happened to me it would trigger a panic attack. There is a movie circulating in theaters called "Like Alice". It is about a woman who is 50 years old who has a rare genetic disorder which makes her experience bouts of dementia. The viewer sees a view which normally the person having the episode sees and experiences.
