I was invited to a lunch event in New York City by my dear friend, Karen.*
Seated at our table were ten people over the age of 55 of various backgrounds and professions: a doctor, an architect, a real estate developer, a politician, a teacher, a holistic health coach (me!), and others.
The conversation started out breezy enough with all the usual niceties of people getting to know each other for the first time.
Within minutes, the gentleman sitting across from me blurted out, “I was shocked to read that less than 14% of New Yorkers have gotten their booster shots. Can you believe that? It’s unbelievably irresponsible! I’m just happy to be sitting at this table where everyone is a responsible human being.”
Karen, knowing my “irresponsible” status, and probably not wanting me to get lynched at the lunch table, said, “My friend Andrea here, has had all of the shots. All seven of them, I think?”
I laughed and played along. I was about to become the proverbial fly on the wall.
She reached up and gently touched her upper arm, near her shoulder and said, “My arm still hurts from the last shot I got. Let’s check in with the physician to hear his thoughts about the boosters.”
She turned to the cardiologist that was sitting directly next to me and asked him to chime in with his professional opinion.
He said, “I don’t think the shots are for everyone. And, certainly NOT for men under the age of 39. I’ve been reading the studies about the negative impact it’s having on their hearts, plus I’m seeing it in my practice.”
The first man snapped, “So are you saying that people should NOT get the boosters?!”
The doctor replied, “What I’m saying is that it’s clear from the medical reports, that the shots are not for everyone.”
Karen kept digging a little deeper and said, “What about what the CDC and Dr. Fauci are recommending. They are telling us to get them again.”
The doctor sighed heavily and sounded frustrated when he replied, “Fauci used to be my God. Now, I don’t trust a word that comes out of that man’s mouth. There’s too much money involved and there were too many lies.”
Wow! It was interesting to listen to my fellow New Yorkers questioning the mainstream narrative, and hashing it out without a filter about the shots.
It reminded me of the cautionary tale of, The Boy Who Cried Wolf.
A young shepherd was tasked with the responsibility of keeping the flock of sheep safe.
But, he grew bored with his task.
So he devised a plan to cry “wolf” to get the attention of the townsfolk.
As soon as they heard his cry, they dropped everything and came running to his aid.
But, when they arrived, they realized they had been tricked. There was no wolf in the vicinity.
A few days later the young shepherd decided to do it again.
He cried, “Wolf, wolf! There’s a wolf!”
Once again, the townsfolk dropped everything they were doing and came to his aid, and to protect the sheep.
And again, they were fooled.
They were now frustrated and angry with the young shepherd.
A few days later, a large wolf appeared at the edge of the forest.
As the wolf leapt toward the sheep, the young shepherd panicked and cried, “Wolf, wolf!! A wolf is attacking the sheep.”
But, none of the townsfolk came to his aid.
They didn’t believe him.
He had lost ALL of his credibility.
As fate would have it, the wolf slaughtered the sheep.
And, in the original tale, the wolf also eats the young shepherd.
With the Covid vaccines, a similar story is emerging.
Anthony Fauci and the NIH, the CDC, the media, the medical cartels and pharmaceutical companies, plus our government agencies, have cried wolf one too many times.
Like the gentlemen sitting across from me at the lunch table, I too am shocked that the booster has a 14% compliance rate. I thought by now it would be closer to 0%.
We’ll see what the future holds.
In the meantime, it would be wise to take your health back into your own hands.
It’s clear that these people cannot be trusted to tend the flock.
