    That’s why it was killing me watching all the people of color getting sent home to die from corona. Being told they are fine and watching them fight with doctors just to die in the end. At the same time a white doctor getting all this media coverage and pats on the back for saving a guy with nazi tattoos.

    PART A: \\ OPEN LETTER to the 638 LAWMAKERS of the New Congress //// Beyond the runaway horizon of DOMESTIC UNITY, that,collectively, all wish to heal, an unwritten duty-destiny rises: — to preserve our WESTERN CIVILIZATION under the United States Proven Cultural Leadership. Last challenged by a growing new reset at WW-I end, is perhaps best described by NYT #1 BESTSELLER “EINSTEIN” by Walter Isaacson. At least a decade before Hitler, post his worldwide acclaimed confirmation of his Gravity Physics, [General Relativity], he left it all to alert the world about the danger of rapidly deteriorating Western Civilization in Germany. None took him seriously, at that time. Avoid politics, stay with your science, his supporters scorned him, one quoting PROVERBS 9:8 <> “Reprove not a scorner, lest he hate thee; rebuke a wise man, and he will love thee <> Perhaps a somewhat similar SERIOUS ISSUE IS AT THE DOOR, to be presented before you on Jan 6, entrusted in your voting hands by the great wisdom of the UNITED STATES UNIFYING CONSTITUTION. ***** PART B: \\ RETURNING TO 1,OOO YRS RETARDED CIVILIZATION SINCE HYPATIA? //// Nobel Prize was awarded to discoverers, in 1998, that EINSTEIN-HUBBLE PROOF of expansion of the universe, is NOT SLOWING DOWN BY GRAVITATION, AS ASSUMED BEFORE, BUT IS ACCELERATING. [Dozen free books, YOU-tube, ”Cosmology, Physics and Philosophy,” Amazon, ‘in’ and at least 10M citations by Google]. Armies of theoretical physics have since claimed that NEWTON-EINSTEIN-SCIENCE-CULTURE IS WRONG AND IS REPLACED BY THEIR MYSTERIOUS, NO-SHOW, DARK ENERGY AND DARK MATTER. ENDORSED by many, the new science requires NO NEED FOR VERIFIED SCIENTIFIC FACTS. Protests by conservative scientists are conspiring theories. Political ramifications followed and the rest is known. ***** PART C: \\ Wikipedia: “where two returns (Electoral from any State) claiming the safe harbor are received, AND “[i]f the Houses cannot agree … no vote from the state in question is counted. This result follows regardless of the governor’s action.”[21]:343. In 2001, a Congressional Research Service report authored by Jack Maskell “embraced Wroth’s view of the statute, citing and quoting Wroth’s article extensively.”[48][47]:357. Maskell’s CRS report also added more arguments based on the legislative history of the Electoral Count Act.[48][47]:357.” ***** PART D: SELF-FREEING Accountability of States GERRYMANDERING that tilts their electoral redistricting numbers —- Georgia [Mar 9, 2017, YOU-tube], ”Washington[127], Arizona[128], California[129,130], Rhode Island [131], New Jersey[132,133]” [Wikipedia] & Oct 17, 2019, Id.: “The man who rigged America’s election maps”, is STATES-IMPOSED on the new Congress//

    !!! If you need to address unresolved trauma and would like to try therapy: your therapist NEEDS to have trauma experience or a trauma specialty. Go to Psychologytoday.com and go to “Find a therapist.” You can search for doctors who specialize in your treatment concern by area and by specialty! There are also options to search for doctors who understand LGBT experience, POC experience, cultural experience, religious experience, and whatever else you might be looking for. Make sure you’re giving yourself your best chance by finding a therapist who will really be able to hear and help your story. And don’t let a therapist who doesn’t work for you make you give up on therapy. Keep going. This is how I found therapists in my area. If you’ve been thinking about therapy for a while, this is your sign. You deserve to break the cycle of generational trauma and write the rest of your story in your own words. Good luck and stay safe, everybody.

    Yeah, I need therapy…give me that PTSS stuff. The college administration in Chicago is treating adult educators like T***. T**** questions what’s the problem if he is helping the American people with $1,200.00 once(including provided funds to hospitals for ppe, ventilators, ect), yet the American public are not solving the pandemic problems. The college administration received @$10 million from the pandemic CARES Act, yet will not provide adult educator funds during remote learning for adequate technology(supplies, printer, electric bill) while teaching remotely. Right now we are in a 6 week period of no pay and yet the college administration CEO and chancellor are each receiving pay during this 6 weeks when the school is closed to the public. Oh, and their salary each is in the $70,000-$120,000, with the CEO recently getting @$3,000.00 raise. Adult educators are recruiting without pay, students in the attempts of keeping our jobs which are threatened if adult educators don’t have @35 students per class when even just 20 students is not manageable. Now throwing in when the school wants you to recruit students who are computer illiterate.

    to my understanding, the church does not cure anything but soul problems. and they like to help, but they can’t help if there are mental health problems, even if they wanted to. be yourself and believe in the doctor, the police and the government just as much as you do now. may visit in the church. lol

    It seems that any race that isn’t white has a hard time finding the mental health services they need.

    This issue is also prevalent for Asians too. Even bringing up the word “therapy” will have your family look at you funny and someone will say “What? Are you a crazy person?”.

    My close friend is affected by depression and had suicidal ideation for a long time in the past. Her parents just told her that she’s “making a big deal over nothing” and act like she’s feeling these emotions just to spite them.

    My mother is severely schizophrenic and her side of the family have practically cut her out of their lives completely. They don’t know how to talk to her and have long since stopped trying once they realized a simple conversation wasn’t going to “snap her out of it”.

    My father has had to keep my mothers mental illness a secret from his own parents because of how strongly they feel about “crazy people”.

    Im currently studying to become a therapist myself because of all the suffering I’ve seen around me that’s being actively ignored by others.

    My heart reaches out to all the others who feel the same pain.

    Theists: Our religion is based on truth and love, not fear.
    Me: So what happens if I don’t believe in it?
    Theists: You’ll burn in hell 🙄
