Today in 1504, 1952, 2014 and possibly the future if you help support H.R. 5226***
Michelangelo unveiled his sculpture David on this day in 1504, and Ernest Hemingway published his novel Old Man and the Sea in 1952 after a twelve year dry spell.
On this day in 2014, I did a lot of driving around, had lunch with two friends, tried to make sense of the thirteen denials from Medi-Cal and tried to figure out what I do next about Sophie's wheelchair. I also made an initial foray into getting in touch with Congressman Henry Waxman of California who I want to co-sponsor a bill (HR5226)*** in Congress that will enable high CBD (hemp) products to be shipped anywhere in the United States so that children and young adults with epilepsy might try it and see whether it provides relief for their refractory seizures.
That basically brings us back to David, no? And Goliath?
***H.R. 5226 is the Charlotte's Web Medical Hemp Act of 2014. The sponsor is Republican Representative Scott Perry of Pennsylvania. I am one of the California "point people," for this initiative, helping to get important congressman to be co-sponsors. I have a lot of information about this and am happy to share. Please email me or I will try to summarize in a post a little later this week.
