Things I’ve Said In Social Media During The COVID19 Pandemic

Here we go!

  1. I’m working more during the quarantine than before. Glad to do it… It’s time, however, to redefine the meaning of relaxation in this household.
  2. There is a Christian pastor in Louisiana asking its congregants to donate their stimulus checks to the church. No wonder why our faith is losing ground in the United States.
  3. War ships are being brought back to host COVID19 patients… Meat trucks and parks are now being used to host the sick, as well. There are tents here, there are tents there. Yet, most colleges and universities have empty classrooms, including schools in NYC. We could help in this war like crisis. We have four and a half months before classes begins in person next Fall. What a colossal lack of wisdom, ladies and gents. Look, I realize that in the big scheme of things, my contributions to saving lives and influence others in this country is very small. Most of the things I say, most people ignore. I’m average, I get it. I don’t know man… In the great depression, the market dropped their prices in order for people to be able to somehow live, en mass.I’m afraid that we are dealing with a “virus” that is as deadly as the COVID19 — Greed.
  4. I miss Florida… But Tennessee has its advantages. Good night friends. May the Lord be with you, always.
  5. Colleges and universities are loosing a great opportunity with this crisis. Work with hospitals and be good citizens of your communities by opening campuses to temporarily serve as an annex to a hospital.
  6. Very few people know that in my early 20’s, I composed a number of songs including “Amanha Sera Um Novo Dia,” which translates as “Tomorrow Will Be A New day.” I feel this one is appropriate for the times we are in these days. Let’s beat this crisis by staying home!
  7. I applaud Dr. Driscoll and the IUP community for canceling all face-to-face classes this Spring and for finding ways to substitute internships and help students. This is great leadership.
  8. What my dad, a corporate CEO… and my uncle, a founding partner of an investment bank told me today about this crisis made me speechless. I don’t mean to scare you but this crisis is much bigger than some of you may think.
  9. Unpredictability is also frightening to many. All we have now is God, the almighty. Thank God we have Him. Thanks be to God, always.
  10. Have some fun, go play the guitar, read a book, watch a movie… Don’t let this crisis make you depressed or sad. Remember Christians, God is in control.
