Polio, a terrible and tragic crippler of millions of young children when I was growing up appears about to be eradicated.
I just read an article that included this from snippet from Bill Gats: “…humanity could see its last case of polio this year.”
Way to go, world!
I'm awed by the beauty of nature and the power of love and gratitude. Some of my favorite sensory experiences include waves crashing on rocky shores, waterways in ancient redwood and fern-filled forests, and rain. My wife and I have been married since 1979. We have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren. I manage a wealth management firm that I founded in 2003. My Beloved is a Special Education teacher for Kindergartners and First Graders. I'm a published author of approximately 60 books in a variety of genres for grownups and children.
what an amazing feat! so wonderful –
It is indeed. i remember seeing victims of polio as a child; a sight my grandchildren will thankfully never have to see.
I’ve met many who suffered from polio. ANd a few who lost someone to polio. This is absolutely good news.
Indeed! I believe humanity is on the cusp of achieving several more huge medical breakthroughs.
I believe the same thing Russ.
