The Term “God’s Waiting Room” is not one to bandy around. A serious Pandemic

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.

Cup for 2000 – 40th Anniv.

Cup for pre-1996 – The “I Love Cotopaxi” Cup – Best Kept Secret in South America!
