https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5bZuDfHCe2A As we get closer to Thanksgiving, this video reminded me how resilient we all are in the face of this pandemic. It's certainly not perfect; but, technology has made this time so much easier. What would we have done if Covid happened when I was in high school, before computers? Would we have simply taken the whole year off? How would businesses have been able to continue work before telecommuting was possible? Little things like zoom, facetime and even UberEats have really helped. The sun is out. It's a lot warmer than usual in Chicago. I feel hopeful on this Friday. Have a good weekend!
Totally cool. Daily Herald publishes the article on a new national awareness campaign on the need for organ lung donation.

Heavenly Father, Lord Jesus Christ, and The Holy Ghost, Where are you in my Life Holy Father? Beckett Isaiah and I are terrified and in extreme danger on the Streets with non-stop Metaphysical Gunshots through our Physical Spirit Skulls as a Sign and Symbolism of extreme danger. The Satanic Cult I've been investigating has over 200 of their Members in vehicles obsessively following us with Spiritual Confessions that it is Natalie Knox from Ellsworth Maine financially Sponsoring the obsessive Stalking with Gas, Food, and Lodging for all Cult Members willing to Murder Beckett Isaiah and I at the first opportunity. Holy Father, you even know that Beckett Isaiah and I were forced to face the devil two nights ago while passing out unconscious on the Sidewalk. Holy Father there is no safety and we have No One to help us against a very terroristic and dangerous furiously angry Satanic Cult. Holy Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ, please make a way Father and do it now! I have no idea what the answer is to our Safety but I do know Beckett Isaiah and I are going to be forced to leave the Safety of the Super 8 Motel in a few hours and sent back out onto these extremely dangerous Streets with over 200 Satanic Cult Members waiting for us and eager to Murder us. I cannot stand even one more Rubber Bullet to my Skull from one of their Drones. They are painful and always immediately place my Heart into a Heart Attack. Holy Father, how is it I'm being informed this Motel Room has been Reserved for continued Safety however there is No One as Staff here at the Motel willing to inform me? If this Motel Room has been Reserved for continued Safety Holy Father, then in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, force Someone to tell me before Beckett Isaiah and I are forced out into extreme danger at the time of Checkout! Do it now Holy Father! Force Someone to tell me NOW FATHER!!!!! Holy Father, this has happened before when a Motel Room had an ongoing Reservation for Safety for Beckett Isaiah and I where the Motel Staff working chose to NOT inform us sending us out onto the dangerous Streets running for our Lives. Holy Father, in the Name of YOUR HOLY SON JESUS CHRIST, FORCE SOMEONE TO SAVE MY LIFE BY TELLING ME THE TRUTH RIGHT NOW THAT THERE IS A KIND HEART IN THIS WORLD WILLING TO HELP SAVE OUR LIVES and this Motel Room does have an ongoing Reservation! MAKE SOMEONE TELL ME NOW HOLY FATHER! YOU NEED TO BE MY GOD! Holy Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ, Beckett Isaiah and I are thankful for the Super 8 Motel on Allison Court in Vacaville California. Please make a way HOLY FATHER and do it now for us to be informed the Room # 217 has an ongoing Reservation. Thank you Father! Thank you Father! Be our God Holy Father! Thank you Father! Thank you Father!
So I haven’t had a permanent address at my parents house in 20+ years and my dad retrieved this in the mail! All parties should be concerned. I thought you had to request a mail in ballot! Wtf? I even went to township over a decade ago to change my address so my dad didn’t keep asking me if I voted. Not my legal name or address. No worries I don’t pack the ballot box. I already voted in person. Crook County!
