APRIL Timely Topics-spring, special days, travel

I hope you can take advantage of the warmth to be outdoors doing fun and healthy activities-walking, biking, swimming, gardening, playing with kids. I’ll share some posts to help you do those activities safely.

In the northern half of the earth it’s finally spring all month long. Warmer, longer days are pleasant but can bring new health challenges and opportunities.

I hope you can take advantage of the warmth to be outdoors doing fun and healthy activities-walking, biking, swimming, gardening, playing with kids. I’ll share some posts to help you do those activities safely.

April timely topics include

  • how to avoid sunburn, insect bites, and blisters
  • health issues that occur in the spring and summer, like seasonal allergies
  • events that occur in April or that we remember this month
  • water safety

faith, hope, and love

And in the faith, hope, and love selections we’ll remember Christians’ observance of Easter

April 19-remembering Oklahoma City

On April 19, 1995, a domestic terrorist left a bomb in a truck in front of the federal building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; I had lived there for 7 years while in medical school and residency. 168 people died, including 19 children. Until 9/11/2001, it was the largest loss of life due to terrorism on U.S. soil.

The incident was shocking and traumatic to our entire country but especially here in our state. Oklahoma is usually a peaceful place; we deal with tornadoes and floods but not bombings. So every year we remember the victims, their families, and especially those who rescued the wounded , and the survivors who rebuilt their lives.
