Parkinson Beaters Movement Believers
Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page!
PB & MB 2019
We are living through some strange times. Social distancing, shelter in place, March without Madness, forced to work from home, distance learning in education, no graduation ceremony for Carson or Lizzy, negative oil prices, no big wedding party for Heidi and Jason and Moving Day – Minneapolis is cancelled… Wait, Moving Day is cancelled. Does that mean I should stop looking for this year’s essay topic?
Susy, “No. People have been fund-raising all year. You need to deliver… whatever you call your annual rambling.”
I could call it an amusing bit of prose or enlightening or?? Anyway.
We are living through some strange times. Several of the Boor clan took a late winter cruise. Returning to MN a week later we were classified as high risk and encouraged to self-quarantine for two weeks. This, so we wouldn’t make others sick if we were infected. (We were and are clean.) Just as we finished the quarantine the shelter at home directive was announced. Our little clan remains isolated.
By all accounts it is working. Limiting contact between people is slowing the spread of covid-19. “Bending the curve” is giving time for our medical system to prepare. It is allowing time for researchers to develop effective treatment protocols, test methods, and eventually a vaccine. Working together, we are changing the course of this pandemic.
Working together we can solve the big problems facing us. Global climate change, disease, species extinction, poverty. Clear vision, sound strategies, and consistent determined effort can effectively address all of these. We only need the honesty, courage and fortitude to face these challenges.
Strange times. Yes, but still hopeful. Working together we will come through to a brighter, cleaner, and healthier world.
In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson’s disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.
