Think you’re having a bad day? Trust me, you’re not. Try donning your armor and charging against ebola.
I know the world’s been a little busy lately. But in case you didn’t know, a full blown ebola outbreak is in progress.
By the way, why do folks capitalize the word ebola? Like we have to name it, like its Steve or Othman. I refuse. Who decided it deserved to have capitalization? This virus can kiss my ass. Sooner or later we’ll find a way to brutally destroy it. So why should we give in to its unreasonable demands that we make its first letter big?
Doctor Sheik Umar Khan led Sierra Leone’s ebola response. He died at the front. Battling this evil. He was 39 years old.
You can read his profile here:
Some people are larger than life. Not everybody gets that call. That chance to battle on behalf of all humanity by doing the very simplest of noble deeds. We all wonder how we’d act if we got that call. Are we cowards? Would we fail? If faced with death or disgrace, what would we do?
Doctor Khan answered the call and did what great men do. It’s rather awful that he’s gone and that he had to die like that. I wouldn’t wish an ebola death on even history’s greatest monsters.
But if you have to check out, this is one of the ways to do it. On the line, in danger, helping your brothers and sisters to the end.
Say a prayer for Doctor Sheik Umar Khan. And let him inspire something good in your life today.
