Do They Know It’s Christmas

When I first saw this video, I started thinking about the politics of Ebola. I did a Google search for Ebola and there has not been much written on it since the beginning of the month.

The reason for that is unfortunately obvious. The election is over.

Today a brave doctor, Dr. Martin Salia, died. He was working in Sierra Leone, and was flown to Nebraska for treatment. Diagnosed on November 10, Salia was five days into his battle with the disease and “critically ill” when the decision was made to fly him to Nebraska. This has largely been ignored by the news agencies. There were no politicians yelling about it. But don’t worry someone will find a way to blame it on Obama.

In the end we are all part of the human race. Each existence is magical and holds limitless possibilities. Why should we not at least try to help.

Yes, I know it is just a song. Sung by insanely rich musicians.

When I was a Freshman in college the original came out. It was “just a song” but it gave us hope. That we could change things.
