Oofta, it seems we can’t turn on a radio, a TV or pick up a paper without reading something frightening about Ebola and its spread.   A few days ago a young person asked me if I’d ever seen such a time as this.  I told him about the Polio Epidemic, its terrible toll on our nation’s children and the fear that gripped the country.  As bad as it was, eventually Dr. Jonas Saulk developed the Polio Vaccine.   While it’s to early to tell what direction this latest epidemic will take, the best advice is to understand as much as you can about this virus.  Here’s a good starting point Ebola Information.

To quote a great president, “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”
