Public Speaking Ritual

Public speaking fear, Relieved by a beer, Can lead to audience loss, You are filled with dread, Words at mirror said, Make you seem like you are boss. Tell a short story, Of me - no glory, Make them laugh real good and loud. Forget the content, They’ll think you’re bent, Self-comedy wins a crowd. For Nette Onclaud’s “Alouette Your Cleansing Rite (Ritual)” contest Written by Lee Ramage August 27, 2011 Placement: 8th

    You did really well with this challenge, Lee. And lucky you, are you Canadian? Down here some are saying, "oh, Canada is not a good system. Canadians are going to the US for their surgeries becuase the lines are so long with their health care system." Please tell me it ain't so!! I can't believe universal health could be worse than what I am seeing in my state of utah. (I am uninsurable and going thru hell because of my back problems waiting for hubbie to finally find a job that will give us health care).

    Our Canadian Health system is the best in the world. While you may wait a year for surgery that is not life threatening eg- hip surgery, you will get heart bypass in a minute if you need it. I go to my family Doctor whenever I feel the need or for a checkup anytime, free of charge. I don't pay for pills, physician care or social work support. All is covered by our healthcare. There are some that complain, but Universal healthcare is wonderful. Everyone gets care, whenever they need at any hospital. What more could you ask for? That;s my opinion and I've had lots of experience. Take care Lee
