China did the dirty deeds leading to chronavirus pandemic

chronavirus  becomes  a pandemic because of  actions of the  Chinese  government

 China  not  God  “terrorizes … mocks science … and tests our stamina.”

 Stephen Kessler writing 4/1/2020 in the Santa Cruz Sentinel Opinion page  wonders  why  God permits the  coronavirus pandemic   when it was  man’s actions – specific actions  by China – that did the dirty deeds.

China   permits  ‘wet markets’ & thus the spread  of the  virus  from bats or pangolins to humans.    China’s  suppression of information about the virus and manipulation of the World Health Organization are well documented. Listen daily  to Trump’s  fume on that topic.  Or read the WSJ  4/11/2020.     It was the Chinese  government  not the  Chinese people who brought  this scrooge  on humanity.  That CA gets so many visitors from China and Asia may be one  silver lining to the pandemic.   It appears that   CA  got inoculated early on in Dec. and hence  CA’s much lower rates of infection.  Thus, say ‘thanks….’  to the next Asian American you meet!

Bidden, such a decent person some say …

Such a decent person, some say …

Joe Biden, such a decent person …..?

Mr. Stephen Kessler refuses to accept history when he writes:  “but for now I’m looking for something to like about Biden beyond his decency as a person..” Oh?

Biden  is the same decent person who has lied about his law school record, plagiarized when there and continued to plagiarize when running for president , stealing from Neal Kinnock a 2d rate British pol.

Finally decent Joe wrongfully accused an innocent man of manslaughter in the death of his wife where the innocent man was cleared and the then Mrs. Biden was at fault. The innocent man and family suffered for decades and Biden ignored their pleas to stop slandering their  father and husband.
A rape accusation and the enriching of his relatives remain shrouded in mystery where the press remains silent about investigating decent Joe.

As an idealistic twenty-three-year-old English teacher at Wilson High School in Long beach, California, Erin Gruwell confronted a room of “unteachable, at-risk” students.

One day Erin  intercepted a note with an ugly racial caricature, and angrily declared that this was precisely the sort of thing that led to the Holocaust—only to be met by uncomprehending looks.

So Erin ….  and her students, using the treasured books Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl  and Zlata’s Diary: A Child’s Life in Sarajevos their guides, undertook a life-changing, eye-opening, spirit-raising odyssey against intolerance and misunderstanding.

Erin and her students …   learned to see the parallels in these books to their own lives, recording their thoughts and feelings in diaries and dubbing themselves the “Freedom Writers” in homage to the civil rights activists “The Freedom Riders.”

With funds raised by a “Read-a-thon for Tolerance,” they arranged for Miep Gies, the courageous Dutch woman who sheltered the Frank family, to visit them in California, where she declared that Erin Gruwell’s students were “the real heroes.” Their efforts have paid off spectacularly, both in terms of recognition—appearances on “Prime Time Live” and “All Things Considered,” coverage in Peoplemagazine, a meeting with U.S. Secretary of Education Richard Riley—and educationally. All 150 Freedom Writers have graduated from high school and are now attending college.

With powerful entries from the students’ own diaries and a narrative text by Erin Gruwell, The Freedom Writers Diary is an uplifting, unforgettable example of how hard work, courage, and the spirit of determination changed the lives of a teacher and her students.

The authors’ proceeds from this book will be donated to The Tolerance Education Foundation, an organization set up to pay for the Freedom Writers’ college tuition. Erin Gruwell is now a visiting professor at California State University, Long Beach, where some of her students are Freedom Writers.
