By Holly Abernathy –
Who among us has not had their world turned upside down in the last two years? None, I dare say.
Women: it’s like someone grabbing your purse, turning it upside down, and dropping the contents all over the floor.
Men: it’s like someone taking your wallet and tossing all its contents up in the air during a hurricane.
Many of us are left standing around, scratching our heads, trying to figure out how to clean up the mess…a kind of reckoning. How do you take what’s left and put it back in its proper place – if there is one anymore – and what about the now empty spaces?
The constant upheaval and waves of change over the last two years have taken their toll on many. Contents and portions of lives have been lost, broken, and some necessarily discarded. Nowhere is that seen more clearly than in the world of health and medicine.
The year 2020 gave us a new god to serve: Dr. Fauci. Science was already on the pedestal of the wandering American heart, but COVID-19 gave it a face, a name, and unmerited authority. But the inconsistencies of Dr. Fauci have become evident, and trust in and of doctors and medical establishments has been shattered by time, data, and brave, well-informed observers. Consequently, good doctors are left standing among villainous charlatans and some unwitting accomplices.
Unfortunately, Good Doctor, the pandemic has caused new challenges. Regrettably, you are now up against a large portion of a population that neither trusts you, nor has faith in your expertise and opinions. This result is not in the best interest of either party.
The “professionals” in white coats told us masks worked. Then, their church and governing body, the CDC, told us they didn’t, so we stopped wearing them. Then they told us they “sort of worked.” Even now, some still wear the mask, even when we know they do nothing to stop the transmission of COVID-19.
Data now show that mask wearers suffer respiratory discomfort and damage, and children continue to endure the consequences of irreparable mental and developmental harm.
They also told us that the COVID-19 “vaccine” worked – until it didn’t. Get the “vaccine,” and you won’t get COVID – except you will. Get boosted and you will have long lasting immunity – except you won’t.
Change the definition of “vaccine.” Ignore the data that state there are consequences for young people that far outweigh the risk of infection. Pay no attention to VAERS. Overlook the strokes, blood clots, and heart attacks associated with COVID-19 “vaccines.” Ignore the nefarious behavior of global elites and organizations such as the WHO, the WEF, and even the CCP regarding restrictions, mandates, and despotic governing bodies.
COMPLICITY BY SILENCE
In the focused search for truth, the messages are confusing. Sadly, yet justifiably, we don’t believe you anymore, Good Doctor. Your white coat no longer invokes respect, honor, and trust. Many distrust you and will be skeptics until they die. Your colleagues have lied and misled society for what appears to be pride, status, fear of loss and rebuke for not following “the science,” and most unscrupulous of all, kowtowing to the pharmaceutical industry in exchange for financial gain.
You, by default, are included in a profession of people that has guarded itself during this pandemic, rather than the people they took an oath to serve. Silence equals complicity.

We owe a debt of gratitude to those who did speak out (some addressing members of Congress), sought additional data, and treated with Ivermectin and other alternative treatments, including Dr. Robert Malone, Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. George Fareed, Dr. Brian Tyson, Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, and specific to Tennessee (Johnson City), Dr. Denise Sibley. Also worth mentioning is America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLDS), who continues to receive negative publicity from the mainstream media regarding alternative COVID-19 treatments.
Back in the news today, Dr. Simone Gold, founder of AFLDS, was sentenced to 60 days in prison for her presence in the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. on January 6. The headlines show the continued politicization of medicine:
“Doctor known for spreading Covid misinformation is sentenced to prison for role in US Capitol attack” – CNN
“Anti-vaccine doctor sentenced to prison for Capitol riot” – Yahoo News
“Anti-vaccine doctor Simone Gold sentenced for Jan. 6 trespassing” – The Washington Post
“Anti-vaccine doctor sentenced to prison for storming the Capitol on Jan. 6” – NBC News
“Dr. Simone Gold, leading anti-vax figure, sentenced for storming Capitol on Jan. 6” – ABC News
Regardless of Gold’s role in the January 6 riot and her attorney’s distancing of himself from her fundraising efforts, it’s clear that mainstream media continues to politicize medicine and any other voice or opinion other than the established, accepted narrative.
It is unfortunate that the desire to seek more data and information gets one labeled as a “right-wing nut,” white supremacist, or domestic terrorist. Many simply want to think for themselves and have access to all the information before being forced to make decisions outside of what the state media machine is reporting.
The last two years have shown that making decisions before all information is available is less than prudent and comes with consequences. For example, SADS deserves to be discussed in the main stream media, but it is not. In the highly politicized environment we now live in, any questions opposing the accepted viewpoint generate negative labels.
Many fear these labels. They are what we stick on each other to make sense of our environment. Often times we get these labels wrong, and fail to dig deeper into what is available. You, Good Doctor, are now labeled too. The last two years have put you in an unfortunate position with your patients: distrust.
A RETURN TO PATIENT-CENTERED PRACTICE
Many of us are left standing around, scratching our heads, trying to figure out how to clean up the mess…a kind of reckoning. How do you take what’s left and put it back in its proper place – if there even is one anymore – and what about the now empty spaces?
For those willing, let us work to pick up the pieces and put them back in their proper place. A prosperous society needs good healthcare and there does not need to be the “empty spaces.” We need honest, thoughtful, humble healthcare providers. We do not need and can no longer tolerate, as a society, doctors who worship at the altar of organizations who no longer have the best interests, health, and well-being of individual patients at the center of their model.
We need healthcare providers who put their patients – not money – back at the core of their practice. Good Doctor, this is what you’re up against. The last two years have been difficult, but you are needed to help pick up the pieces, from many individual worlds, patiently, and one patient at a time.
