I’m happy to thank a veteran any time I can. But veterans aren’t the only ones responsible for my freedom. They’re not the only ones who deserve thanks and respect. Thanks to the teachers who taught the veteran to read, the farmers who produced food for the veteran to eat, the doctors and researchers who kept the veteran healthy, the engineers who built roads the veteran could use, the police and firefighters who kept the veteran’s community safe, the restaurant workers who served the veteran when he needed a meal, the retail workers who sold the veteran clothes, the car mechanics who made sure the veteran’s car worked, the public transit and taxi drivers who took the veteran places when his car didn’t work, the university professors who exposed the veteran to new ideas, the artists who made the veteran’s world prettier, the writers who made complex ideas understandable, the social workers who provided care for members of the veteran’s community, and the entertainers who gave the veteran a reason to relax when he needed it. THANK YOU ALL.

According to NBC News, the outbreak, which killed 10 infants and sickened more than 9,000 others, was the worst the state has seen in 60 years.
A study released Monday in the medical journal Pediatrics analyzed the outbreak pattern and tracked the number of children whose parents filed for “non-medical exemptions” from the state’s vaccination program. Non-medical exemptions are given to families whose children are well enough to tolerate the vaccine, but who refuse to administer it to them anyway for religious or other reasons.
The California Department of Health identified 39 statistically significant geographic clusters of families seeking non-medical exemptions and two major zones of whooping cough cases. According to the data, non-medical exemption families were 2.5 times more likely to also live in an outbreak zone.
