How to Help Jackson, MS

   Locals currently have a very small bit of low pressure contaminated running water, apparently, which “Dr. Daniel Edney, a Missouri State Health Officer, advised Jackson residents to boil water for three minutes before use rather than just one minute to be safe, according to Mississippi Today.

Jackson, Miss. water distribution sites:

In response to the water crisis, Jackson is passing out free cases of bottled water as well as tankers of non-potable water, which is not for consumption, but for things like flushing toilets and cleaning.

The City of Jackson recommends directly donating to the Mississippi Rapid Response Coalition’s Water Fund. And, if you are local to the area, you can reach out to rapidresponse@peoplesadvocacyinstitute.com about volunteer opportunities.”

from this article.

Now, for the longer term problem, which that state has created through neglecting public schools, public infrastructure, public transportation, and public health services: as Project Do Better has previously pointed out, massive cooperation must go beyond addressing the emergency situation, and look to the long term hindrances on voting and voice for all citizens of MS.

Parashat Re’eh, and Self Health Care

 

Parashat Re’eh / פרשת רְאֵה

 

I taught a class on this parashah at the DC Beit Midrash, some years ago, as a follow up to the previous year’s class on a different parashah.   Since I schedule my posts ahead, I will be away (mostly) from the internet all weekend, concentrating on clearing paper notes from my desk for my own mental health. 

May we all find healthy and inclusive community.

I will be taking off tomorrow, so our usual Sunday GED class post will resume next week.

Last week was: Parashat Eikev (עֵקֶב) 5782, and Carrots And Sticks  ;

Action Items:

1.) Share your thoughts on how community can help, or hinder, inclusive thinking,

Shira

Last Early Draft Outlines: the later years of Phase III

This post is, though the book is now done,  the rough draft of  Chapter 10, section III. A. of my non-fiction WiP, Baby Floors.   This part of chapter 9 will introduce the later years of mapping out a path to get there for Phase III.

The overall objective remains that of putting a floor on poverty so that each and every baby born can have a safe childhood.

I was posting rough draft sections in order to compare with later drafts, but now I see that posting too much of the rough draft is just tiring, so this will be my last, unless I have scheduled some that I may miss.   I’ll be concentrating on drafting my novel in progress, Who By Fire, so this may get lost, and I ask your indulgence, Thoughtful Readers, if it does.

 

Once again, by way of disclaimer, the overall goal is now to explain why we need both equ. + justice, & why in 4 phases.  This chapter is part of showing what Phases I-IV could look like as potential roadmap for a fully inclusive society for all of us.  This vision is laid out in the hope that All HumanKind  will eventually have each person’s basic needs  met, without taking anything from anyone, and without violence, intimidation, nor coercion of any kind. 

(Chapter 10, section II. D. was last week)

Chapter 10, section III. A.

 

— (Next Wednesday: Chapter 10, section III. B. )

 

I’m considering this Rough Draft as the block of clay from which my book will eventually emerge, obviously, and some ideas for phases III and IV are still becoming more  fixed in my mind as I write, so the final version will likely look pretty different from this Rough Draft, and will need updating once I get to the very end.

 

And once again, yeayyy( !!)with regard to audience, I may have at least a couple of comps:  Walden Two meets The War on Poverty: A Civilian Perspective (by Dr.s Jean and Edgar Cahn, 1964).  I know that lots of people consider Skinner’s writing to be stilted, but I like the tilt of most reviewers, in that the idea is that a community should keep trying policies that members agree upon until they find what works for all of them.

As for genre, I’m still wondering:  clearly part of  Non-fiction.

Maybe also: System Change, Causes, maybe even Inspirational, but I doubt it.

Action Items:

1.) Consider sharing some ideas you may have on how our society can solve homelessness and child abuse, starting right now,

2.) Write a story, post or tweet that uses those sources and your thoughts.
