Wednesday, April 8, 2020

It's no hoax; it's REAL and it's DEADLY. At least 46 people in NC have died from COVID-19. STAY HOME if you can, and if you go out for groceries, to get medicines, or other allowed reasons, cover your nose and mouth--if you don't have a mask, use a kerchief. WASH YOUR HANDS and stay at least six feet from other people! If you are sick, call your medical provider. If you have flu-like symptoms, try self-isolation unless they are severe. Only consider the emergency department in a true emergency to reduce the burden during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The investigation began when the Sheriff’s Office received a report on January 19, 2020 of inappropriate touching of a 7-year-old female who was known by the suspect.

Surviving Or Succeeding?
One of our needs as people is to survive, but if we settle only for survival, we give up a lot.  In agreeing to merely survive, we wind up living by someone else’s terms, instead of our own.  Are there other options?  Yes, of course!  You can succeed.  You can thrive.  You can use obstacles as your staircase to living out your full potential.
