Franklin TV - E Pluribus Unum–?

by Pete Fasciano, Executive Director   07/18/2019

These days it feels a bit more like E Unibus Plurum. Out of one nation’s goal to achieve heard immunity and protection for all. There are many divisive opinions. So many opinions are sadly conflated by so much misinformation and myth. Yes, we are all entitled to our own opinions, but not to our own facts. Facts are facts.

Fact: The vaccines work – remarkably well.
Fact: They are up to 100 times safer than risking infection.

These next few weeks are mission critical for those who have yet to be vaccinated. Note that it takes 2 shots and 5 to 6 weeks to achieve full immunity. That puts any protection for the unvaccinated into late August – when health experts fear the rising worst wave through September and on. If you are not yet vaccinated, this should be tops on your to-do list.

It also means that masks will likely return as the new fall fashion.

Conversely, for those who still don’t wish to be vaccinated, if at the least, you wear a mask then you are doing the right thing for others while you exercise your right. Thank you.

E Pluribus Unum–?
E Pluribus Unum–?


in our collective fight against the virus,

are you choosing to die on the field of battle?

Fight for yourself, your family, your friends. Take up arms (the left or right one) against the invisible enemy – the real enemy – the virus, and give it your best shot – or two.

I pledge allegiance to the mask and the United Safety of America.
And to the protection for which it stands.
One nation, invincible
with immunity and vaccines for all.

And –  as always –
Thank you for listening to wfpr●fm. 
And, thank you for watching.
