" THE QUIET CORNER, CT
 WILL SLOWLY DIE "




To Governor D. Malloy,

There are two things that act as an anchor in communities across America; a college and a hospital. In The Quiet Corner, Day Kimball Hospital is our anchor. You already know the statistics from the thousand plus residents who work there to the tens of thousands of patients who are treated there. It has been given high praise from the medical community at large for it's work in primary stroke care, for the stabilization of patients with heart attacks, for their high risk maternal fetal medicine doctor so their patients no longer need to travel to Hartford for sometimes weekly visits. It is also a hub for local residents in the thirteen communities they serve to receive mental health care, nutritional advice, new family counseling, and support both medical, educational and financial. These are a few of those programs: Deary Memorial Cancer Fund, social services, Quiet Corner Elder Screening Tool (QUEST), Healthy Start, Nurturing Families Network, Wendy's Place, Women, Infants and Children Program (WIC).

As a proud resident living in The Quiet Corner of Connecticut we only have one nearby source that can keep us alive and healthy that being Day Kimball Hospital. If you cause Day Kimball Hospital to close or curtail it's health care services we would be forced to go to the closest in-state hospital which is approximately 40 to 60 minutes away and that would jeopardize the lives of any resident in this area. Any health care provider will tell you that minutes, sometimes seconds, count in a person's ability to survive a heart attack, stroke or any other live threatening trauma. Are you willing to risk the lives and well being of the people who depend on Day Kimball Hospital? Are you telling us that you're putting a price on our survival ?

Without the financial support from our State not only would Day Kimball suffer as it's services and staff would have to be dramatically cut but our surrounding communities would suffer a devastating fate as well. Putnam would suffer the most. For the past several years Putnam has worked hard to revitalize the downtown area attracting restaurants that have received high praise across the state, to the antique shops, the clothing stores, the craft, food and coffee shops to the new boutique hotel, automobile dealerships and service centers as well as all the other stores that one needs to exist in a community. All of this will perish and The Quiet Corner will go from being one of the fastest growing counties to literally the fastest new ghost town of Northeast Connecticut. 






Is the state really saving money by cutting millions from Day Kimball's budget? I think not. The money you may save will be spent on food stamps, Medicaid and other social services that may help Connecticut's Quiet Corner citizens to minimally survive.

It's time for our State Government to step up and do what's right for their citizens and not the bottom line. Keep the $12,000,000 in the budget for Day Kimball Hospital.  We implore you, Governor Malloy, to make the honorable and correct decision so that ALL THE PEOPLE in The Quiet Corner can sleep at night assured that, you, our Governor is watching over our community and all that reside here. THAT IS JOB ! ! !

Do the right thing, use commonsense and 
support the care and well being of the people of The Quiet Corner before The Quiet Corner becomes silent - forever.

" AMERICAN ABYSS "



 We will only be free when

 politicians in America understand

 COMMONSENSE and care more about the

 average American then themselves. For

 those elected MALE politicians who have

 the

 mentality

 of a third grader (most)

 EXCEPT WOMEN WHO DO  HAVE MORE

 COMMONSENSE THAN ANY MAN.

The definition of the


word COMMONSENSE is doing what is

 best for the situation at hand. Example -

 Politicians are elected to take care of

 and be responsible and act responsibly

   for the well being

 and safety for our children, the needy, our

 veterans, seniors, health care, financial

 responsibility of our hard earned taxes

 (our money) we give you, gun sense,

 protecting women against violence,

 medical research to end diseases,

 creating jobs in America not overseas, a

 united country not a divided one

 otherwise each state must be it's own

 country and the list goes on and on. We

 need a release valve for all the pent up

ANGER we have for them and what they

 have done to our country. That release 

valve is " YOUR FIRED ".


    Then and 

and ONLY then can you call America a

 great country, but, NOT until that

 becomes a reality.

 DEPRESSION 


 " THE SILENT KILLER "


STRESS, abandoned, achy, afraid, agitated, agony, alone, anguish, antisocial, anxious, breakdown, brittle, broken, catatonic, consumed, crisis, crushed, crying, defeated, defensive, dejected, demoralized, desolate, despair, desperate, despondent, devastated, discontented, disheartened, dismal, distractable, distraught, distressed, doomed, dreadful, dreary, edgy, emotional, empty, excluded, exhausted, exposed, fatalistic, forlorn, fragile, freaking, gloomy, grouchy, helpless, hopeless, hurt, inadequate, inconsolable, injured, insecure, irrational, irritable, isolated, lonely, low, melancholy, miserable, moody, morbid, needy, nervous, nightmarish, oppressed, overwhelmed, pain, paranoid, pessimistic, reckless, rejected, resigned, sadness, self-conscious, self-disgust, shattered, sobbing, sorrowful, suffering, tearful, touchy, trapped, uneasy, unhappy, unhinged, unpredictable, violence intolerable to live with and then SUICIDE.


Fact - Twenty seven million Americans have severe clinical depression. I am not a psychologist, psychiatrist nor neurologist BUT I DO KNOW COMMONSENSE SOMETIMES IS A CURE. Depression starts off with stress and escalates downward. Thousands of situations cause stress but the ONE factor we all can agree on is financial uncertainty, living in poverty and health care. That is not your fault it is the fault of the BARBARIC POLITICIANS (OUR GOVERNMENT), more to the point THE REPUBLICAN PARTY who are slowly and completely destroying America law by law thus causing intolerable STRESS and SUICIDE.
Politician's do NOT have financial stress since they receive a salary and FREE health care for the rest of their lives even though they're not in office. Where is the justice in that ? Thus we suffer daily in mental pain they will NEVER feel. In their minds DEPRESSION is very low on their list to cure, but money is at the top of their list for THEMSELVES. Show Love and compassion to those who suffer from this monstrous disease and for those that cause it may they agonize in hell. They are The Silent KillersI truly believe that are all REPUBLICAN POLITICIANS on the most powerful PSYCHEDELIC ILLEGAL DRUGS PRODUCED SINCE THEY THINK NORMAL PEOPLE ARE SHEEP. BIG SURPRISE COMING THAT WILL MAKE THEM MOVE OUT OF OUR COUNTRY. THE DEPRESSION WILL GO AWAY.

" ZEN and LOVE "


        by Harvey Edwards



We are meant to live a life of love.


 When we’re not in love, something’s the matter. However, no matter how successful some are in other aspects of their lives, they don’t feel it’s possible to have the same success in love. They tell themselves to “be realistic.” Being realistic about relationships” is considered natural as we “grow up” and give up the fantasies, foolishness and dreams of childhood. But nothing could be further from natural. Being in love is the most mature and realistic thing you can do. It energizes your life, fills you with positivity, creates generosity and makes every moment beautiful. The body heals the heart is happy. The real question is, why aren’t we in love all the time? How can we learn to fall in love with all of life?


The world of Zen is filled with guidance and practice that permits us to open our hearts, clear our minds, become present, be who we are and be able to discover the wonderful secret of falling in love with all of life. Commonsense is the direct path to happiness and a world that cares for all human beings.

" FLUIDITY "



Life is just a millisecond in time and space.
Let no laws enacted by others divert your path to happiness.
Live your life and follow your dreams. Ignore all else that stand in your way.
