“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
On a more personal level, I'd tell you that I went to a travel clinic to get my vaccinations for our trip and now I have two red welts the size of my palm on each of my arms. They're swollen, hot, itchy, and painful. The nurse said that if I didn't have an allergic reaction in the first 20 minutes (which I didn't) I'd be fine, but it's been two days now and I'm slightly concerned. I'll wait it out for one more then see if I need to follow up...
For those who are curious, in preparation of going to Central America I received my tetanus, Hep A, and flu shots (for free -- go Canada!), and paid $55 for a typhoid vaccination as well. I'll also be taking anti-malarial meds while I'm down there. None of the needles particularly hurt, but my left arm (where I got my typhoid shot) ached for two days and was very painful to the touch. Last night however, my right arm (where I got my Tet+Hep and flu shots) was red, swollen, and on fire. Hopefully these reactions won't last for much longer.
I'm smiling because I secretly have Baileys in my mug :)
