On this day known as giving Tuesday, #CITYIMAGES wants to share some advice with our constant and regular readers.

The old phrase of washing out your mouth with soap may have been a traditional form of physical punishment that consists of placing soap, or a similar cleansing agent, inside a person's mouth so that the person will taste it, inducing what most people consider an unpleasant experience.

Over one thousand Americans died from COVID on Thanksgiving Day and more were financially destitute and hungry on Thursday.

President Trump's continues lying about his election loss without providing any proof as his GOP rhetoric hampers recovery and Americans face heightened economic and health fears. 

Our national economy is in a dangerous and vulnerable spot entering the 2020 holiday season because POTUS and Republicans have failed to approve the necessary economic relief package, while The White House continually downplayed the COVID pandemic.

Anyone with intelligence knows that #COVID restrictions are for the benefit of family, friends, and neighbors, so everyone can stay alive.

However, some are saying that enforcing these rules infringes on human rights, but without them, there will be no humans left on earth.

Following the simple public health guidelines will keep us out of ICU but refusing them will not ensure that we will ever see you again.

Please wear a 😷 mask and forget about how it looks. Common sense proves that is better to feel great than to look 👀 good.

The pen is mightier than the sword was initially written by English author Edward Bulwer-Lytton in 1839, indicating that communication utilizing particularly the written language, or in some interpretations, administrative power or advocacy of an independent press, is a more effective tool than direct violence could ever wish to accomplish.

What did you wake up thinking about this morning? Your busy day? Plans for this weekend? Your mother’s birthday gift? Whatever it was, it almost assuredly wasn’t #COVID the global pandemic 😷 Corona virus, the promised immunizations, or second-hand smoke. And however important we think these subjects are, no one outside of public health makes them a priority.

This is the reason why FCC rules required that media organizations provide the public information available to the public.

There are now 9 million #USA cases and scientists fear that spreader rallies are relying on a false premise of herd immunity for The Coronavirus pandemic, #COVID19. Has herd immunity ever been successful? In fact, the short answer is NO.

Stanford University researchers say President Donald Trump’s campaign rallies have resulted in 30,000 infections and 700 have now died.

Have you heard about a POTUS preposterous plan of herd immunity? At the present rate of 50K infections per day in the USA today it translates to mass murders and it means that if we wait until a large number of people contract the #Coronavirus and hope they recover, millions will have died.

Ask yourself if your Governor is practicing heard immunity by allowing seniors and minorities to become infected and may die? All elected representatives should decry Trump’s coronavirus lack of a response, or to lay out a plan for international cooperation.
