Essentially, I’ve been working from home tutoring my students via telepractice since the outbreak shutdown began. In a few days I will be physically back to work, as an “essential” treatment of my own patients in another facility. If you want to know, here’s what I’ve noticed: it’s incredibly difficult to define large groups and make decisions, as we’ve seen through the many attempts of the ethical perspectives of leaders/philosophers over centuries (Kant, Bentham, etc.). It is also incredibly easy to criticize those who have been put in charge of these delegations; largely because of the language they use. What matters is that we are all ‘essential’; especially in regards to containing this thing. We all have a job within this network that will make or break the results. The situation is calling us to recalibrate and adapt ourselves, for our own “greater good”. This is not the time to retaliate for rebellion (despite how we feel about those running the delegation); the moral circumstances are different this time. Since most of us are not openly sitting at this table right now, we can only control ourselves. So, as an individual “essential”, recognizing its part of a larger system, I will continue to use my judgment wisely and further, prioritize compassion. Happy Sunday. Stay safe 😘 #labcoatleisha #onetimeforthebx
Another thing she said she was taught was to prioritize the return and prepay concepts; sharing her blessings was her responsibility, whether she liked it or not. She rarely spoke of her parents and only greeted them at 24 in 2014e birthday.
