Perspective a valuable asset

I woke up Wednesday morning, May 7, having suffered a narrow defeat in my efforts to be the Democrat nominee for Judge Vigo of Superior Court Division 2. My daughter, Ashley, reported that her good friend Sara had just endured surgery for the removal of a brain tumor but she was doing quite well.

My wife, Diana, reported that she saw on Facebook that the young neighbor girl just down the road may be suffering the recurrence of a cancer situation. Diana also noted from Facebook that the beautiful child Brionna was still engaged in her battle relative to a significant illness. I also received an update relative to my friend Mike and his courageous battle against cancer.

At that point, I then realized that my election defeat was quite trivial. Therefore, I got dressed and did what I have done quite well every day for the last 35 years; I went to work as an attorney and appeared in court that very afternoon representing a young lady in a family law situation. Sometimes your troubles pale in comparison and you must put it all in proper perspective.

Celebrate other food options

Folks ready to fire up their outdoor grills face a deadly choice of inflicting food poisoning or cancer on family and friends: Food poisoning by E. coli and Salmonella bacteria, if they undercook the meat; cancer, if they heat meat to the point of creating cancer-causing compounds.

Luckily, a bunch of enterprising food manufacturers and processors have met this challenge head-on by developing a great variety of healthful, delicious and convenient, un-chicken, veggie burgers and soy dogs.

These delicious plant-based foods don’t harbor nasty pathogens or cancer-causing compounds. They don’t even carry cholesterol, saturated fats, drugs or pesticides. And, they are available in the frozen food section at most supermarkets and natural food stores everywhere.

Check out the array of alternative cheese and mayonnaise substitutes, delicious and cholesterol free, in the refrigerated section, too.

This holiday and festival period offers a superb opportunity to consign meat to a bad memory and make new memories by sharing wholesome veggie options that are better for you and your family and friends.
