beach clean-up florida hospital

On June 24, nearly 100 volunteers joined Florida Hospital Flagler for a beach clean-up along Flagler Beach. ‘It was awesome to see many children involved this year’s beach cleanup, as the day is all about teaching our children that it’s our responsibility to care for the environment God gave us,’ said Eddie Goncalves, Florida Hospital Flagler director of pastoral care. ‘The highlight for me this year was when six beachgoers saw what we were doing and asked if they could join our volunteers. I gave them gloves and trash bags and off they went.’ All in all, the group picked up seven large bags of trash from the beach. (FHF)

“In giving up on preventive care, I’m just taking this line of thinking a step further: Not only do I reject the torment of a medicalized death, but I refuse to accept a medicalized life, and my determination only deepens with age. As the time that remains to me shrinks, each month and day becomes too precious to spend in windowless waiting rooms and under the cold scrutiny of machines. Being old enough to die is an achievement, not a defeat, and the freedom it brings is worth celebrating.”

–From Barbara Ehrenreich’s “Natural Causes,” 2018..
