This week was one of those quiet moments in time in between waves of awful news – a moment that allows you to put awful events into perspective, as well as talk about other issues that need to be addressed. There is, after all, a bigger picture and more things going on in the world than Ebola, World War III and the fall of the American Empire.
So, as the next wave of pandemic, war and financial collapse gathers itself for another attempt to swamp our lives with awful news, we have the opportunity to connect some other dots and look at other problems.
It isn’t Ebola that will destroy America, it’s the evil men and women who care for no one but their own foolish greed that will destroy us. In fact, we had better hope that Ebola is as bad as we fear, because if we conquer this threat in such a sloppy way, we will be wide open for when something worse comes along.
And, yes, there ARE diseases that are worse than Ebola.
