All salaam Sir Nobles, Lady Nobles and Sultanas June 2020
GRAND COMMANDERS COMMENTS:
I'm sitting here in my self imposed isolation thinking of you all and how much I miss socializing with you and all of my friends. These are uncertain times during which we can not be too careful. Most of us are at the age where if we contact this corona virus we will be in grave danger. So we isolate ourselves and it seems as though this will go on forever. I remember another fearsome time and I'm sure most of you do also. In our childhood the biggest fear our parents had for the welfare of their children was POLIO. Polio was a horrible, invisible, deadly, debilitating, disease for which their was no cure. Not only was there no cure nobody knew what caused it or who it would strike next. Parents listened to various reasons of how you could contact the disease. You remember not being allowed to swim until at least an hour after eating. Not cooling off in a breeze after exercising, etc. It was truly a fearful time. We all knew that by some unlucky chance we could be stricken and end up dead or in an iron lung, or paralized. Dreadful times indeed. Then seemingly out of nowhere came our deliverance from this fear. Dr. Jonas Salk had developed a vaccine that worked. Remember standing in line at school and being given two sugar cubes with a drop of vaccine on each of them. Those cubes were our gateway to a life without fear of contacting Polio. What a joyful time! So as we sit here and wait out this virus we must remember that some of the best minds in the world are working to find the vaccine that will deliver us once again from fear. One of my favorite biblical sayings is "this too shall pass" and it will. We will meet together once again with all of our families and friends without fear. Until then stay well and know that you are loved and missed.
