    This young woman is not only a sweet, beautiful person, but she is a NURSE for heaven's sake. But that person did not see her kindness or her job description, or her strength of character, just her skin color. Please keep Yasmine in your prayers, the wounds are all superficial, but of course she is traumatized, frightened, and will likely end up with scars on her pretty face.
    How horrible. Yasmine is in my prayers. I'm sending hugs and good wishes and healing energies to her, that her healing, physical and emotional and spiritual, will go well.

    She is healing physically, at least. It turns out her attacker was her upstairs neighbor in the apartment building. So sad, pointless violence and hatred.

    Please, everyone, continue to stay safe and keep up the precautions. Seeing an uptick in cases in many places where they have been "reopening" things, and its two weeks since Memorial Day Weekend, when many people traveled and gathered for the first time in months.

    June arrived after
    A year-long, turned, broken May
    A heart-worn world burns

    Streets of broken glass
    Shattered dreams, lives forever
    Scarred, changed, burned, we cry

    Yet somewhere a song
    Ignites a shred of hope, of
    Healing, moving on

    Together even
    As we keep distance, voices
    Can rise, united

    I will stay strong
    Use all of my smarts
    Won't cave and hate
    Gonna eat me buttertarts
    I will wash my hands
    Wear a mask
    I will listen to peeps
    Not a hard task
    Need to listen
    That's what Ellen say
    I'll try to listen
    No need to learn the hard way
    Hate is a hopeless road
    Let's be kind
    I'd surely kiss a toad
    Clearly rappin'
    Isn't my best thing
    You haven't been tortured
    'Till you've heard me sing 🕊🌈

    Kermit's friend Alfina is in the hospital on oxygen. Please keep her in your prayers. She is a mom with two tweenage children who need her, and a Paiute indian.

    Because of poisonings, dangers of blindness etc., the FDA has created a list of hand Sanitizers to avoid:

    Please check the list and check your cabinets!

    Hi, Karen I'm safe

    Karen, being a resident in a nursing home, they take all of the precautions to keep us safe, but it's BORING! There are no visitors and our temps are taken often. But then it's great considering the alternative!! Everyone at pettalk and the u s a PLEASE be safe!
