I was struck today by the Governor of the State of Florida kind of blandly saying that the 20% of elderly folks in Florida who live there are in “God’s Waiting Room”.
I hope the Governor has looked at some of the lines of coffins being buried or cremated in other states and countries and taken this to heart.
Today, as I was looking at news from the countries where I spent much of my career as a teacher and principal I was especially struck by two countries for which I have fond memories although they were trying times for both.
86 – 90 in Lima Peru at Colegio Franklin D. Roosevelt and 96 – 2000 at Academia Cotopaxi in Quito Ecuador.
The former city is now under seige by the corona virus and the pictures in the article attached says it all. I hope you will think about those pictures in the Cathedral of Lima the next time you forget to wear your mask or joke about this virus.
The latter is a happier scenario from Academia Cotopaxi which is now celebrating its 60th Anniversary. Wow! I’ve been gone 20 years? Seems like only yesterday! Here are two of our old school cups I still use.
