Was I kidnapped for a short time and forced to write an angry post on my blog? I was just looking at the daily prompts. One of them is Why did you start your blog and the other one is Write an anonymous letter to someone you are jealous of.
Is is possible to write a post that covers both of these questions? I so believe, I just may have that one covered.
Did you ever get that little tiny voice in your heart that is nagging at you? Causing you to feel not exactly comfortable, but better explained, as unsettled?
I have been having that feeling since I made my last post. I wasn’t exactly sure about why, until I seen the two prompts that I mentioned earlier.
The answer to the first prompt, why did you start your blog?, would be to share and teach Respect, Hope, Joy and Love. Now to answer the second part of this question (have you found your blog going in another direction?) if you read the last post that I have made you would probably say, Yes. The title just might clue you in on it…. Ugly Greed, Vanity, and Selfishness. In the post I address the National Drug Shortages. These shortages are truly happening. In my article I shared links to the Washingtonian reports that have found that while the hospital is on shortage, and having to triage the use of life supporting medicines, there are places that have no shortages and are supplying the very same items found on the shortage list to give a quick recovery from a hangover! There is actually a bus called “Hangover Heaven” where Fourteen people can be getting an intravenous drip of the very vitamins that are needed to help to support newborn infants who have undeveloped digestive system and need intravenous drips to survive!
I found myself very angry at this! I have an amazingly courageous grandson who is being kept alive by these much needed vitamins. He not only is on TPN but also has been affected by other needed drugs on the shortage list. The majority of people who live in the United States do not even know that there is a National Shortage List of Medications. My anger and outrage about this causes me to speak out in order to draw attention and hopefully help correct it.
However when we speak out in hopes of bringing about a positive change it should not be done with anger. This is where the Daily Prompt helped me to realize why I was feeling that small unsettled and annoying voice in my heart.
The post asking us to blog about someone you are jealous of made me think. Had I not have written this post and felt a little uncomfortable about it, I would not have realized that I am jealous of people who have healthy loved ones not in need of these lifesaving medications!
Most likely the people who are accepting the intravenous hangover therapies and “cosmetic” vitamin boosts for beatification do not even know that there is a National Drug Shortage List! And I pray the providers of these service are not aware of the shortages and would happily hand over the needed nutrition if it is possible.
My being angry with them will not change a thing, but calmly raising awareness just may. I am going to go back and change my title to “Please Help American Children and The Profoundly Ill”
I hope you will consider sharing the post and helping to bring about awareness and a solution! America is capable of so much better than this! We just need to open people’s eyes to the problem. Please Help, here is the link to my previous post. Thanks for sharing!
I love this quote : The things you take for granted, someone else is praying for
Oh, Don’t forget to listen and examine that still small voice in your heart! Recognizing it and sharing it can be quite calming 🙂
With respect, hope, joy and love,

Well said, Carmela; I quite agree.
Thanks for your comment 🙂
Great post, Carmela. This is actually a better introduction to the outrage than is your original post on the topic
Calm conversation, void of anger is always better understood! I know that and often vent my rage by running on the treadmill, but on this topic the anger still sometimes comes through 🙂 Thanks for your comments!
It is amazing how writing about something can form some clarity for ourselves. Great post.
Thanks for your comment!
