We need a shift in priorities


I just had a horrible experience. I went with my father to an appointment for an electromyography. I literally saw my father’s chronic pain. And though it was rough, that was not the horrible part. The hardest thing is that my father may not get the medical help he needs because of more budget cuts.

What? We can pay for a war that kills our families, dish out money for people who are not our responsibility, spend millions on making our communities easier on the eyes, but we can not help our own? Or, there are limits to what help a person gets?

My father, like so many others, served his country. I think, and it’s only my opinion, maybe priorities should be changed.
