The South Korean president is an avid dog lover and has several canines, including one rescue named Tory, who was the first rescue dog to live in the Blue House — the official residence of South Korea’s president — according to The Guardian.

According to his spokesperson, the president said during a meeting with South Korean prime minister on Monday, “Hasn’t the time come to prudently consider prohibiting dog meat consumption?”

LAPD Employees Plan to Seek Exemptions from Covid 19 Vaccine Mandates

LA TIMES — According to a source in city government who was not authorized to share the preliminary data, more than 2,600 LAPD employees have indicated that they plan to pursue religious exemptions, while more than 350 plan to seek medical ones.

Under the ordinance, city employees must be fully vaccinated by Oct. 5 unless they are granted a religious or medical exemption. Employees who receive exemptions will be subject to regular testing for the coronavirus, according to the ordinance.

The vaccination rate among LAPD employees has hovered at slightly more than 50% for months, lagging behind the general public and raising concerns about the health risk posed to the people they interact with on the streets and in confined spaces such as jails and courthouses.

I’m very interested in hearing your thoughts on this topic. Should Covid 19 vaccinations be mandatory for public officials such as police? Why or why not?

9/11: 20 Years Later

It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since 9/11. For me, this day was especially painful because my fiancé had just been murdered two days prior (on my birthday).

I remember hearing the news of the World Trade Center attacks and rushing to the tv to see the actual towers crumble right before my eyes. The feeling of grief & terror is still memorable all these years later.

Thousands of innocent everyday people died and the world ultimately changed overnight. Tensions rose to an all time high and shortly after the US waged war on the Middle East sending the US economy into economic decline and recession.

There are tons of conspiracy theories surrounding this infamous day. Where were you on September 11, 2001? Do you think the “war on terror” has been won? Why or why not?

Leave me a comment & let me know what you think.
