Walking Among Sequoias
Although I have never had the opportunity to visit the forests where sequoias grow, it would no doubt be spectacular. I do feel, recently, that I have come very close to such an experience through being a member of the WarRoom/DailyClout Pfizer Documents Analysis Project. My fellow volunteers on this project stand tall, strong, and majestic, just as sequoias do; and the solid branches of our team stretch far.
Britannica.com defines sequoias as trees that are generally pyramidal in shape, with reddish brown fibrous bark that is unusually fire resistant. It goes on to state that the largest giant sequoia specimen is the General Sherman tree in Sequoia National Park. That tree measures 31 meters (101.5 feet) in circumference at its base, is 83 meters (272.4 feet) tall, and has a total estimated weight of 6,167 tons. Sequoias are massive, spectacular trees that certainly stand out among other trees in the forest. By the thickness of their bark, they are capable of surviving forest fires. These majestic trees have survived hundreds and thousands of years and grow mainly near the California coastline, as well as in places like Oregon and Nevada. There are also some species of sequoias in Europe. And some locations have even transplanted the trees.
According to Wikipedia, the name given to the sequoias possibly came from a man named George Gist or George Guess who was a Native American. He was a polymath of the Cherokee Nation in 1821. Wikipedia goes on to define a polymath as an individual whose knowledge spans a substantial number of subjects, known to draw on complex bodies of knowledge to solve specific problems. Polymaths were great scholars and thinkers, who excelled in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and the arts.
Having lost my job for not getting a COVID vaccine, I decided to gain more knowledge about the pandemic and the novel virus which resulted in the modified RNA (modRNA) “vaccines.” My educational background includes a public health and medical license. The COVID vaccine information I was exposed to did not seem to make sense. The more I read, the more things did not add up. Around that same time, I saw an opportunity. I wanted to help, so I volunteered with the WarRoom/DailyClout Pfizer Documents Analysis Project. This opportunity has given me the privilege of meeting and getting to work on a team with some of the finest people you could ever meet.
People, just like trees, come in all shapes, sizes, and colors and, thankfully, cover the entire planet. The beauty of trees and their foliage have a way to attract people’s attention. Besides their visual beauty, they provide many benefits to the world. The wood can be used as a heat source and to build shelter; they may produce shade; and they even provide food such as fruit, nuts and syrup, as well as beautiful fragrances. The sequoia tree is one that is truly unique even when observed from a distance. Its height and width make it stand out in the forest of many other trees. The sequoia is an amazingly resilient and enduring tree that survives many years despite disease and damage from lightning and even fire.
Many times, after finishing one of the WarRoom/DailyClout Pfizer Documents Analysis team meetings, I found myself stepping back in a kind of awesome wonder. Working with the people on these teams is an incredible experience. I can only liken the team members to being like that of the sequoias in the forest of today’s world. These “sequoias” are among the most respectful, dedicated, knowledgeable people you could ever have the opportunity to work or maybe even walk among.
These “sequoias” are doctors, nurses, pharmacists, medical investigators, professors, clinicians, data experts, biostatisticians, FDA experts, and attorneys. They come from all over the planet. They, too, volunteer their time for the purpose of determining the root cause of the damages being caused by mRNA COVID vaccines and to provide truthful answers for the public, which are all inevitably “patients.”
According to the National Institute of Health (https://www.nlm.nih.gov/hmd/greek/greek_oath.html), the origins of the Hippocratic Oath were found in Greek medical texts. The oath has been updated to apply to today’s medical professionals. The wording “first do no harm” is not specific within the oath; however, it is implied in other ways. In summary:
- The oath requires loyalty. Upon taking the oath, the physician swears to keep the oath to best of his or her ability and judgement. Physicians swear to teach the art of medicine and to impart their knowledge of their art to others.
- The oath requires the physician not to give a lethal drug to anyone, even if they are asked, nor may they advise such a plan. Similarly, they will not give a woman a pessary to cause an abortion.
- In purity and according to divine law, the physician will carry out his or her life and art.
- They enter the practice to benefit the sick and to avoid corruption or seduction.
- They swear to keep secret the information of patients in their professional practice.
- They maintain the oath faithfully and without corruption, gaining the respect of all men for all time. However, if the oath is broken, the opposite may be their fate.
In addition, nurses, upon graduation, recite the Nightingale Pledge. According to Wikipedia:
“The Nightingale Pledge, named in honour of Florence Nightingale, is a modified version of the Hippocratic Oath. Lystra Gretter and a Committee for the Farrand Training School Grace for Nurses in Detroit, Michigan created the pledge in 1893. Gretter, inspired by the work of Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, credited the pledge to the work of her committee, but was herself considered “the moving spirit behind the idea” for the pledge.
The Nightingale Pledge is a statement of the ethics and principles of the nursing profession in the United States, and it is not used outside the US. It included a vow to ’abstain from whatever is deleterious and mischievous‘ and to ’zealously seek to nurse those who are ill wherever they may be and whenever they are in need’.”
Although an oath or a statement of ethics and principles is taken during graduation ceremonies, maintaining the credentials of such oaths comes from the heart and soul of each individual. Such professions require all licensed persons not to give harmful drugs and to maintain strict confidentiality. There is also an expectation from the public that licensed professionals maintain high integrity in their profession and maintain the standards of the practice.
It does not require a license to maintain good and strong moral principles. It is a human quality that can be obtained by those who chose it.
It is an honor and a privilege to work with such insightful, scholarly people. The team members are among the most dedicated, self-sacrificing people on the planet. They work many hours judiciously conducting research. They strive for profound accuracy. They demonstrate enormous respect for one another, helping each other strive for perfection. The results are nothing less than a compilation of didactic literature developed to educate the public and to enhance the truth about today’s medical concerns.
One branch alone of a sequoia can be as much as six feet wide and 150 feet long. It is not very likely a sequoia tree will fall in the woods. However, it is very likely It WILL be heard if it falls.
Just as it would be incredible site to view a sequoia growing in the forest, I can truly say I am grateful for the experience of walking among the “sequoias” on the WarRoom/DailyClout Pfizer Documents Analysis team.
One of our country’s most important freedoms is that of free speech.
