The Shot Boosters

Dr. Julie Boom: Back when we had this post-World War II parent and child group that fought polio, it was an obvious natural choice that you stepped up to the plate. Then, the mentality was about helping your neighbor. And today I think that people say, “Well, I would help my neighbor as long as it’s convenient for me.” There are groups who then want to say, you know, “This is where my medical freedom is,” and kind of to draw a wall around themselves—not understanding that if you engage in a social behavior like sending your child to school, then your world does go into someone else’s circle and our circles overlap.

Marii Freire comigo!

A estupidez humana é algo realmente tocante. Ora, mesmo conhecendo o ser humano, suas virtudes, falha de caráter e tantas outras situações inerentes a ele, se você não é capaz de compreender que todos nós somos livres, que não somos ou fazemos parte da propriedade de ninguém, e que o intuito maior de se construir uma relação não é prender uma pessoa aos nossos pés, sabe ” acorrentar mesmo?” Pois bem, por que há tanta gente com pensamento retrógrado? Esse tipo de ideia é inútil. Na prática, é você viver preso a ilusão. Você compreende? É você, não a pessoa que deseja prender. Somos nós que criamos prisões internas e, não sabemos sair delas na maioria das vezes. Veja, para uma pessoa ter o desejo de estar ao nosso lado, essa concepção de amor, de enxergar qualidades e uma série de situações, isso parte dela, não de você. Eu, você…
