Prompt for the Day: “Divide”

The segregative people at the Daily Post group of Word Press gave us the one word prompt of “Divide“.  Then they added an obvious statement-“Write a new post in response to today’s one-word prompt.”

Isn’t there enough Division in the World?

Just looking back through the history books of the United States of America, remember when the south fought the north in the Civil War?  If that weren’t bad enough, our schools used to be segregated.  White students went to one school while blacks were forced to attend another.

Then there was the time we segregated our citizens based on their religions.  Most were just here fleeing the Nazi regime.  They wanted to raise their families in a more peaceful environment.  So what did we do? We confined them to camps where they were forced to live in squalid.  Amazing more of them didn’t die from sickness living that way.

Today there is a division of the income of families.  The families that live in poverty are treated much differently that the wealthy.  There used to be a thriving middle class of families that worked to keep this country running each and every day.  Today the middle class basically no longer exists.

Politics today has the entire country up in arms.  Some candidates are funded by their supporters while the others operate off their family’s money.  Kind of the haves against the have-nots!  They flood the news media with advertisements against their competitors.  Kind of why I gave up watching T.V. years ago!

Please Help Fight this Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist has prescribed for me for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is basically nearly impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford then or every 28 days! Biogen (the company that manufactures the drug) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.
