Predictions for 2017, or “How to Survive the Unthinkable”

Predictions for 2017, or “How to Survive the Unthinkable” by Elena Greco January 22, 2017 This is an unusual year. It started with the Inauguration of a new President who is unlike anything this country has ever seen, and who is perhaps the biggest threat to our country’s continuation as a great democracy that we have ever seen. That Inauguration…

Religion: Who Needs It?

Religion:  Who Needs It? by Elena Greco August 30, 2016 I’m going to have to say something once again that I know will not be very popular.  It’s about this religion thing. It’s not about being intolerant; I’m not. For me, it’s not about which religion is being practiced, either; they all have the same issues.  It’s about the wreaking of…

The Compromise

The Compromise by Elena Greco July 17, 2016 Revised August 30, 2016 I think one of the effects that social media has had on us is to reduce our ability to see the big picture, or even to think of looking at the big picture. As a result, we tend to react instantly to what is in front of us…

The Quiet Epidemic

THE QUIET EPIDEMIC by Elena Greco March 15, 2016 Many people have not heard of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)—an unfortunate misnomer, since the disease is not about being “fatigued.”  It is known by several other names, including Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), Chronic Fatigue and Immune Dysfunction Syndrome (CFIDS), and Systemic Exertion Intolerance Disease (SEID). It affects all systems in the body.…

What most people mean by “New Year’s Resolution” is more wishful…

Purchasing Health

Purchasing Health by Elena Greco December 30, 2015 Every year I choose a cause or topic to focus on, one which is urgent or important to our culture and our planet. I learn as much as I can about it, post about it on social media, and write about it. That’s part of my activism, something I think is particularly…

Gratitude: Why Bother?

Gratitude: Why Bother? by Elena Greco We hear a lot about gratitude. It seems like something we should be having, or aspiring to have. But what is it and how do we get some? And why bother, really? When I started counting my blessings, my whole life turned around. ~ Willie Nelson At times our own light goes out and…

Sticks and Stones

Sticks and Stones by Elena Greco Credit: Blaze Press April 9, 2015 We need to communicate with others. It seems obvious, doesn’t it? In order to come to agreement about pressing issues, in order to create positive change in our world, we have to have a dialogue—with friends, with enemies, with other political parties, with other countries. I have to…

To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate – What a Loaded Question…

To Vaccinate or Not To Vaccinate – What a Loaded Question… by Elena Greco August 10, 2015 Vaccination is a topic which seems to bring out rabid and vicious disagreement. Those on either “side” of the debate (they seem to see it as an either/or situation) seem to have an unusually negative reaction to those opposing their view. People have…
