Reality Before Vaccines


Of course it could have been a mining disaster, but I don't think so. How horrible for this poor family.

And yet we have the anti-vaccine crackpots among us.

Whew! Talk about being whipped out! Vaccines are here for just that reason!

I know a James Christman, whose family was from up in Ephratah... I wonder if these are related.

Jan, I have come very close to snoozing some folks on FB who constantly share anti-vax memes. I am old enough to remember distemper very well, and had the big three that the MMR vaccine prevents personally. Wish they would come up with a viable Lyme vaccine!

Linda, so many similar stones in this and other local older cemeteries. So sad.

Wentdy, this was near Ephratah, where many members of that family still reside, so it is quite possible.
