This iReport is part of an assignment:
Health Care and Politics
Scott was a good and dear friend. Tears ran down my face at his memorial service tonight as we each took turns talking about Scott. He was a regular at our house on Poker night for a long time. Scott graduated from Harvard not Yale as I said once and he owned his own business as an actuary. He also did major accounting for H&R block ,he was a math wiz. A man who helped make sure homes were built for the poor . He worked hard but still could not afford health insurance for himself. So he forfeited the insurance and could not see the doctor on a regular basis. In the end he blamed himself for not making sure he had insurance ,in the end he had so many people to see him love him and tonight say good-bye.
My time spent on many issues at times I feel are totally senseless because people can be cruel and vicious.
On this subject I hope those people trip on their tongues.
I have no patience for ignorance and none for absolute stupidity.
This health care issue is way out of hand in America and we are told to die if we cannot afford it ? Well Scott died.
In closing , think before you get your dander up and know that you , your family or your own child could have doors closed and left to die.
I am asking we believe in humaness again. tell me , is that too much to ask or believe in ?
