January Imperatives

A few thoughts during this quiet Sunday in a temperate January come to mind that I hope all readers consider:

  • Yes everyone has their feelings about the flu shot. I’m not here to preach about the vaccination as it’s a personal decision you make with your medical professional. However, as a human, it’s not only flu season we are dealing with but also a very miserable virus. It’s scary the number of reported casualties this season. If you or a family member is under the weather, get checked out. Here are some helpful tips on choosing the right setting for your medical care.
  • The first State of the Union Address delivered by President Trump will be this coming Tuesday, January 30. Anticipated themes include tax reform, border security, immigration, and the stock market. Tune in at 9PM Eastern.
  • On the local front, while Q4 2017 data is not finalized, I am hoping that accidental drug-related overdose deaths are on the decrease for our tiny state. Every live saved is a blessing and a gift that has slipped through another family’s fingers. Continue educating yourself and promoting recovery options for all.

Looking forward to a prosperous and healthy 2018 for everyone.
