Poetry Is - A Poem by Dominic Windram



Poetry is a kind of refined consciousness.

It shines a light on unfamiliar particulars.

Poetry cuts through the crude machinery of now.

It is akin to vintage wine: it matures with time.

Poetry quickens the senses and delights the soul.

It is everything and nothing. It is paradoxical.

Poetry is an exploration of the kingdom of the mind.

Its symbols span the centuries and many lifetimes.

Poetry is a turning away from the amorphous crowd.

It is best composed in the deep silence of solitude.

Poetry at its finest provides a voice for the voiceless.

In the ragged realms of night, it is a constant source of solace.

O may sweet poetry always burn brightly throughout the ages,

In spite of the dark powers that strive in vain to bring it down.

Vaccine Safety News from Finland to Sane Vax


Sane Vax,  8 September 2019

Citizens disagree with Finnish health authorities regarding the safety profile of vaccines based on an internet-based questionnaire conducted by a local patient support group.
A support group comprised of vaccine-injured and their families in Finland circulated an internet-based questionnaire to find out if there could be an association between vaccinations and healthy children or adolescents/adults falling ill.  Once the results were compiled and analyzed, it was impossible for them to find a medical professional willing to help them get the results published in a peer-reviewed medical journal.
They contacted academics from their own country and abroad. All of those contacts agreed that the study has been conducted well and that it deserved to be published, but none of them were willing to co-author the manuscript because of the controversial nature of the topic. In other words, they were afraid of being bullied and losing their position.
In addition, the parents contacted and shared their results with leading health officials and politicians in order to promote honest public scientific discussion regarding vaccine safety in Finland. Since this did not lead to any concrete actions, the parents completed a literature search on their own as well as translating their abstract and full study report to English by themselves. Both are attached below.
In short, 129 injured persons, or their caretaker completed the questionnaire (incl. 33 items of detailed, multiple-choice questions). Results of the survey concluded:
”Based on this questionnaire survey the temporal association between vaccinations and the onset of multifaceted neurological and neuropsychiatric symptoms is evident. It is unlikely that this finding would be only a coincidence since similar cases as observed in this study (around all parts of Finland) have been reported also elsewhere in the world (1-6). The true causality is supported also by the emerging number of research papers published the medical literature (e.g. 7, 8) according to which aluminum and other vaccine ingredients may cause multi-path autoimmune diseases.”
Finnish authorities denied even the possibility of true causality and, thus, have not considered necessary any public discussions or actions that would help the injured in any way. They claim e.g. that HPV-vaccines are safe based on their own nationwide register cohort study and neglect the results of the internet-based questionnaire conducted by Finnish parents, who have questioned the reliability of the authorities’ study, published in Vaccine Journal (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30115524).
The injured and their families have heavily criticized the authority driven register-based study stating HPV-vaccines are safe. Instead of counting how many previously healthy persons become seriously sick after vaccination the authorities chose only selected diagnoses for their statistical analyses. Taken that most of the affected persons suffer from several different symptoms with varying severity along time and that the persons experiencing similar symptoms may have different diagnoses, the negative association found by the authorities did not come as a surprise to the parents. In parents opinion, this kind of study design and statistical analysis is not reliable.
The peer support group of Finnish families have undergone a fierce debate with their national authorities and main policymakers as they wrote in the following letter to SaneVax:
 ”Dear President of Sanevax,
We are writing to you on behalf of over 200 Finns, who signed the complaint on the poor management of suspected vaccine injuries to our national authorities. The report of our internet-based questionnaire was attached to the complaint and by now it is available also in English language (attached to this letter). Next, we try to explain in short what we have done to get help to hundreds of persons with ’mysterious’ symptoms.
On May 2018 we sent a letter (with over 200 signatures) to all authorities that are responsible for the situation of vaccine-injured people and their maltreatment. We asked them to help these families.  Our mission was to show with the results of our Questionnaire, how similar the affected persons’ situations and symptoms are, and also how nobody gets help. Doctors don´t admit vaccine injury, they don´t know how to diagnose those symptoms and they don´t give any treatments or compensation, either. We also asked questions, how ethical is it to give HPV-vaccine without informed consent and to advertise it is safe and effective and leave the decision to 12 years old girls?  We asked for a meeting where we could come together to start a conversation and try to find some solutions. 
The leader of National Institute for Health and Welfare, The Minister of Social Welfare and Health, The Minister of Family Affairs and Social Services, The Director-General of Finnish Social Insurance Institution and The Director of Finnish Medicines Agency got our letter. They answered to us that there is nothing to worry about, everything is under control and that they have just made a big study, where they have proven that the HPV-vaccine is very safe and effective. They pointed to their nationwide register-based cohort study (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/30115524). It was a very shameful answer, not only because we didn´t talk only about HPV-vaccine injured children and adolescents, but also about healthy adults, who were injured after numerous different vaccinations.
When we got their last email, we decided to send a complaint to Finnish Chancellor of Justice. We complained regarding these authorities and problems in the National Vaccine program. The complaint was left on the 2nd of November 2018.
A few weeks ago, we got a very disappointing answer from the Chancellor of Justice; He is not going to take our case under his investigation!! He gave a statement, that he can´t estimate the safety of vaccines and he hasn´t noticed any procedure that could be against the law or any failures of duty.
Nevertheless, we are not going to give up, since our own lives and our children’s lives are at stake. We wish to do our part to increase the general awareness among ordinary people by sharing our story and the results of our survey with as many people as possible. Thus, we would be grateful if the English version of our study report would be published on Sanevax site. The original report (written in the Finnish language) will be published in Finnish social media.
 With kind regards on behalf of over 200 signers,
Elina Vuorenmaa, Saara Seittenranta, Tiina Koistinen, Päivi Tuominen, Päivi Ketolainen, Risto Ahonen.

My Favorite Apple Pie Recipe

800 grams apples  ( 6 large apples or 9 small apples)

one conference pear

Topping Ingredients List:

75 grams butter .  (1/2 cup)

3 tablespoons sugar

One tsp. cinnamon powder

Little nutmeg powder

Little cardamon powder

Light syrup.   (Syrup from cane or wheat source.  No corn syrup)

2.   Melt the butter in a small pot on the lowest heat setting.

3.   When butter is melted mix all topping ingredients in the pot.

4.  I add spices first, then sugar and syrup, then cream or milk, then the coconut flakes, then the flour and lastly the oats.  I stir it all together with a wooden or plastic spoon and only add more oats if necessary to get the right consistency of an oatmeal cookie.

5.   I spread the topping out evenly on top of the chopped apples until all apples are covered.

6.   Heat oven to 200 C  or  395 F

Soon They Will Return - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



The leaders are gone

They have gone into hiding

Soon they will return

©  2019     M.N. Hopkins

Note:    The inspiration for this poem came to me early in the morning yesterday after waking up.  I suppose the motivation for this poem and the one I published yesterday came from thinking about the incompetence and corruption we are now experiencing in government, business, boards, bureaucracy, academia, organizations, clubs, almost anywhere decisions are being made by a few for many.   It is almost as if the weakest, dumbest and most dishonest are chosen as front men or rubber stamps to push the agendas of a few in a position to make a profit from the actions of lesser men.  Anyone of strength, character or intelligence is slandered and made to look as a fool by their peers.  In this way control is maintained.  The leaders have been silenced but as leaders they are waiting as in hiding for the day when their abilities, skills and character will be needed.   This day will eventually come due to the actions and inaction of the inept now acting as the ones in authority.

I wrote this poem in the haiku style of poetry yesterday and published it for the first time on my blog today, the 3rd of October, 2019.

Where Are The Leaders? - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins

Destroyed by slanderous ones

We Wish All A Clarity Of Sight & Feeling - A Discourse by M.N. Hopkins

A Truth Angel
We wish all a clarity of sight and feeling, so as to know what speaks of truth and what speaks of falsehood.  We wish all a calmness and a certainty of being that can only be expressed when one is living in an honest, truthful manner.  We wish all a happiness and a joy in living that is now even rarer than the most rare of precious jewels.  We wish all freedom from fear and fear from their ego tyrants.  We wish all a light-heartedness that brings with it a great power, a great wisdom, and a calm confidence that all will go well in one's life and in the lives of those around them.

I Am Man - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



I am Man

I am one of you

As you are a part of me

We are family

Once together

Now apart 

You see

We have mutated

Transformed

Enlightened

Faster than you

While you crawled

We flew

Never forgetting our own

The love that we shared

As friends

As brothers and sisters

As mothers and fathers

As youth

As elders

We never looked down

Rather

We

Looked up

We serve

Until the day

When all are free

The masters will be servants

And

The servants will be masters

A day of reckoning will come

A day of remembrance

A day of redemption

Will come

That day

We will stand together

Eyeball to eyeball

Hand in hand

Then once again family

Will we be

Man

Yes

Once again in the same family

Once again 

We will be Man

And

All upon this Earth

Will know

And

Will Say

I am Man

©   2019     M.N. Hopkins

Note:     This poem was first inspired earlier this week.  The first few verses just flowed into my mind.  I have worked on this poem during the week and this is the end result.  I have written it in the free verse style of poetry and published it for the first time on my blog today, the 19th of September,  2019.

The term, Man refers to both genders as in Mankind or the family of Man.  My definition of Man is a more evolved or enlightened species somewhere between man and god.  I believe this is how we were once and as we shall be again.  We have only forgotten our ancient history and cannot see clearly in our current distracted or fallen state and reconnect to our former and future glory.

Prophetic Merits - A Poem by KiBLS



Prophetic merits The prophet in his own country. Appears outwardly full of shame. The message reaches its recipient. The transmission simply takes a little longer. Words of a very special kind! They open your inner gate. The effect is highly efficient. And at the same time recursive! The intention, it is always the same! This change, it is truly extensive! The moment is being reshaped! Thoughts completely new normed!
