兩年來的天災人禍 。已經讓許多人痛苦不堪，剛過的的埃達颱風，今明兩天又有另一颱風撲向墨西哥灣， 包括大休斯敦在內的沿海地帶又在嚴正以待， 希望九月的颱風季節早日過去。
We Are Still Fighting A Common Enemy
According to a new survey, 86% of all Americans believe the pandemic isn’t over yet. In the U.S. most people think the country hasn’t even started to recover economically from the pandemic, with 41% saying that conditions are continuing to worsen.
On the school masks requirement, 63% of people believe that the children need to have masks on when they come to school, but 31% opposed it. This has also become a strong political issue today. The pandemic is so politicalized now that people will not listen to the experts.
60% of Republicans report that they are vaccinated and a sizable number are continuing to take coronavirus precautions.
There are many people who support keeping the option open to let people work at home, and doctors should keep the option open for telemedicine.
Today we are really facing many problems in our area. Last week we faced Hurricane IDA, and now we have another tropical storm Nicholas that is approaching Texas. Some Houston area school districts have already canceled classes due to the threat of severe weather posed by the storm.
In the last two years we all have suffered in this pandemic and natural disasters. The world is really “hanging on a hinge,” and unless we can work together, we don’t see any bright future ahead for the world.
