About Me

Ran for US Congress in 1990 from the left. Chairperson of 1989 city advisory initiative calling for 10% reduction in military spending to be divided among deficit reduction and mass transit and social services. Being a miliary town nobody thought we'd get on the balllot let alone win with 64% of the vote. Former chair of peace and justice project for a UMC congregation in Tacoma, Washington.

just like sex offenders

fired cops should have to be entered into a national data base and if in that data base other departments should not be allowed to hire them

I have had COVID-19

I have been meaning to write about this, but have been busy with other stuff. Also didn't want to write about it because I was still processing what the future maybe like internally.

Please take it seriously. I am one of the very lucky ones. I didn't have to be hospitalized and I am still kicking to tell about it. In early February, I got very, very sick. (At that time didn't know what it was) I would wake up with the sheets literally dripping wet from sweat, I would make towels wet from my nose dripping. I could hardly swallow, my body ached and I would have to wash the crust from my eyes, with a warm wet wash cloth each morning to be able to see. This went on for about 10 days. Since then I have had kidney and breathing problems.

I found out because in March others got sick and I went and got tested and was also tested for antigens (antibodies) and came back positive.

Because I sing, speak and teach all over the nation for my work, I use my voice (lung power). I now have a minimum of 18 months of voice rehab and also life long monitoring of my kidneys.

Like I said, take it very seriously!!! And like I said, I am one of the truly lucky ones...please take a moment to think of healing thoughts for those still recovering and also prayerful consoling wishes to those who have lost ones in whom they were in community with!
