This is the first time since 1965, when Congress passed legislation to create Medicare, that lawmakers have approved a bill to expand health care coverage.
My friend from Columbia was visiting me, and trying to understand this in Spanglish when she read it on the Internet.
“Lawmakers? You mean if you are sick you go to a lawyer instead of a doctor?”
Well, for my own situation with GEICO where they claimed I was at fault in a car accident when I was the passenger – that’s true.
I agree with two people I consider the Wisdom Warriors in this field.
One is my friend Patch Adams, M.D. I am dedicated to helping with his “Silly Hospital” which has been in the making for 35 years. He believes ALL medical care should be free.
Every time I hear from Patch it is from a different country. He is a social activist, citizen diplomat, professional clown, performer, author, and soon – darn good Tango dancer.
He founded the Gesundheit! Institute in 1972. Each year he organizes a group of volunteers from around the world to travel to various countries (including post-war Bosnia in 1998) where they dress as clowns, to bring hope and joy to orphans and other patients. He sent me a video called Clown in Kabul I wish everyone could see. We would opt for peace, and end war at any cost.
The other is Deepak Chopra – we have to overcome the physical and mental energy that drains our life. See this on Oprah.com
I hope the law congress passed, like the legislation to create Medicare is helpful. But wouldn’t it be wonderful if we had clean air, clean water, and a clean conscience and could just stay healthy?
As for me, as my mother said “Kisses make everything all better.”
Here’s one for you.
