Do The World A Favor

This week the world was faced with the words of a dimwit who declared that childhood diseases should make a return, as it would prevent future generations from getting cancer.

This week much of the world let those words dissipate as there are more people in the world who know the importance of vaccinations.  If you believe otherwise, that is your foolish choice and you will need to live with the potential consequences.  Unfortunately, so will your children.  If they live.

As long as there are still communicable diseases and foolish people, it will be necessary to get vaccinated.  Because if the disease itself doesn’t get you, the foolish people carrying the disease will.

Getting vaccinated isn’t going to turn you into a zombie.  It’s not going to make you get cooties.  And, contrary to popular belief, it won’t suddenly make you autistic.  It doesn’t work that way.

Do yourself, your children and the rest of the world a favor:  get vaccinated.


I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little. In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing! How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
