A Warning from Wisconsin


The massive paper mill has churned relentlessly since it began feeding off the energy of the Wisconsin River more than a century ago, forming the cornerstone of a cityís economy and producing glossy paper coveted by publishers during the heyday of U.S. magazines.

But the covid-19 pandemic has sped up a long-term trend ó the waning need for the paper used in magazines and printed advertising ó and Verso Corp.ís Wisconsin Rapids Mill will finally fall silent at the end of the month. The shutdown, announced June 9, will knock some 900 people out of work and has sent tremors across the regionís economy, reaching from the plantís gates through town and deep into the Wisconsin forests that supply wood pulp to make paper.

The Wall of Moms link....these moms are fierce!


CALLING ALL MOMS - We meet again at the Salmon Street Fountain on the waterfront at 8:50pm. We will walk over together at 9pm to the Justice Center. Wear yellow and protective gear if you can. Due to the escalated violence by the Feds, please know your participation may result in arrest, tear gassing, and being shot by rubber bullets or even live ammunition once assembled in front of the justice center. Please take every safety precaution available. Thank you to all you brave mamas!

We listen to Black leaders. We are here to follow their direction, behind the scenes and at the justice center. We go where they tell us.
Our goal is to push the media to turn the focus where it belongs: Black leaders.
We will use our white bodies, not our white voices.
Bevís vision was that we moms would take some physical hits in hopes our Black and Brown kids, friends, neighbors, and loved ones will be spared some pain. To summon that mom warrior spirit to protect our kids-- ALL our kids. To let the Feds/cops hit, gas, shoot us first. Not to be the voice of the movement.
A lot of us havenít put our bodies in harms way like this. Itís really scary and awful. But itís whatís been happening to Black and Brown bodies for years.

Letís help each other do this. And thank you all for your grace and courage.


Miami Marlins postpone game as 14 team members (12 players)test positive....


LOL! That's definitely a silver lining...

I will send this to anyone I see espousing not wearing masks.

Hospitals have really been feeling the lack of our NODA (No One Dies Alone) volunteers. If the people who think those of us taking this seriously are ďgiving in to our fearĒ they can come and show how brave they are by sitting at bedside without a mask or any other PPE and holding the iPad for a patientís family to say goodbye over FaceTime.

The more you know....

Some positivity....Imagine Tomorrow
