Looking Forward Into The Future And Looking Back At The Past, written by Cheryl Freier, author and illustrator

 

I attended a local lecture recently, which was given by Dr Jack Leitner, M.D. on his recent trip toEcuador.  My first thoughts were, “How thrilling to be a part of a new frontier”.  Yes, the doctor and all of the others who tended to patients for their stay of time are the new frontiersmen.  They are helping people who live in desolate areas of the world by diagnosing, preventing, and using modern medicines and techniques to help these indigenous people.  I am amazed at the total story, which started with a plane ride over theAndesMountains, up into the air and higher up several thousands of feet, and the setting up useable medical equipment in an area that had no previous medical equipment, medical facilities, or even sanitary plumbing conditions. 

 

As I left the lecture, I remembered thinking that my husband, Martin, was exposed to these same ‘primitive’ conditions during WWII.  He and his family survived, but a key to their survival was treating the situation as the ‘primitive situation’ as it was.  They carved their own fishing poles and fished the waters of theSlovakianMountains.  They made fire the same way as primitive people had done centuries before, by rubbing two twigs.

 

I am happy to hear of an effort of a reversal of difficult life trends and the use of modern medicines to help some of these less fortunate people.  To learn more about my husband’s miraculous story of survival, read:  The Grayling Hidden Truth Poems, The Wild Grasses Hidden Truth Poems, The Day Of The Hidden Truth Poems:  In Memoriam To Martin Freier, and Blossoms Around The Circles Hidden Truth Poems.  Why not live the life of a character vicariously?   Cheryl Freier is the author of these novels, which are listed on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble, and with the publisher, Author House.
