30 Jun Greetings from the Editor ~ July 2022
The Citizens of the United States of America have so much for which to be grateful. July 4th signifies Independence from England, our mother country. External forces and internal social unrest seem to be constant disruptors. I am so proud of our freedoms and understand it takes a lot for us to maintain that. I believe there is a chance one day for a world that works for everyone, once greed, jealousy, revenge, hate and sarcasm are eliminated.

2022 Inflation is now the new threat
Can we talk intelligently about inflation? I am really not sure where to start. There is so much happening that is upsetting, offsetting, or unbalancing the life we are accustomed to in the United States. It is one belief that other countries are attempting to rattle us. Part of the inflation talk surrounds the enormous rise in gas prices. Yet what was the precursor to that? The pandemic forced citizens to remain in their homes for safety. Not traveling became a message to oil producing countries that the U.S. would not be buying as much fuel from them. Consequently, fuel costs began to rise exponentially. When the 9/11/2001 attacks did not stop us from being united, other threats arise. Covid-19, could be interpreted as biological warfare, or was it just a bug started in the wet markets in Asia? The housing market has exploded over the past several years, so now what? The feds will increase the interest rate. These are ponderings for consideration.
