The Hype Of No Avocadoes
By Mitzi Beliveau
Don’t believe the media hype that we will run out of avocadoes if the border closes. It is a ploy to turn you away from the real story. Many American people get dental care in Mexico because it is affordable dental care. I know of several RN nurses that get their medicine there because it is cheaper. I also know other seniors who have been getting their medications there for a few decades. The Americans that are there in Mexico when the border closes will not be able to come home. Americans will not be able to visit or cross. We also get a lot of produce and goods from Mexico. Mexico is our number one trade partner. I believe we have a crisis. It is more than just running out of avocadoes. There is a moral crisis, a mess of people dying and running for their lives. Why would people walk for 1,000 miles? Some dying along the way? FEAR! They are not getting paid, don’t believe that. If they got paid, they would ride the buses, not walk with their small children. This reminds me of my own roots of my father’s family. They came here looking for a better life from the Russian’s that ruled over Finland. FEAR and HOPE drove a lot of people to go to America. We use to have compassion, but there as always been hate. It is a balancing act. So much hate, war, and terror. Poverty all over the world, including our own. Hatred in our own country is in the news daily. Homelessness, hunger, third world conditions, death because of lack of health care and medicines. This is a sad country divided and not working together to solve our own problems. Then in return, we can not help others. Nothing good can come from this. When people are divided, they can be ruled by those who are the elite in power. Not for the good of all mankind or the Nation. The answers are more complex and it takes all people in all walks of life to work hard to solve our problem. Right now it is not happening. Maybe we need another revolution? I said that almost 20+ years ago. I don’t know all the answers or even some of them. I only know we are on a path of EVIL. I feel that every day. I have Hope like my ancestor that come here from Finland and my mom family from Europe. That things will change and we can live compassionately and not let the elite in power work behind the scenes to manipulate the masses. As an Elder, I only see things getting worst with hate and division. I don’t know what our future holds, but for right now, it is not good. So don’t believe the hype on lack of avocadoes. That is a ploy to get you away from what is really going on. Look behind the headlines to see what is going on. There is much more then what I can write about here. But that will be for another day. Peace be with you all.
