Life and Landscapes
A Natural and Cultural History by Ronald R. Van Stockum, Jr.
I am sharing this.
Really good Reggie! I contacted Cholera in 1971 while in Greece from a contaminated well. We were rescued by Geek students who took us to Athens where their father was a doctor. I recovered in 4 days with antibiotics. I lost 30 lbs. It was gruesome, but I also feel fortunate.
I’m in awe. People faced such hardships and suffering before modern medical science’s advances. And maybe 100 years from now people will say the same about our times!
Thank you for entertainment and continuing education.
Happy to say I have now lived a longer life than George.
We should appreciate more the role Public Health and sanitation have played in eliminating these ailments. Next up, Richard Mentor Johnson, one of the most interesting Kentuckians who is buried in your area.
I found this fascinating. Thank you.
Very interesting. Thanks for sharing.
Very well written, with the respect that Washington deserves.
