It is true that a person’s truest worth is inner. Many younger people and their families today have no idea of the panic and fear that smallpox brings with it.
For some, the very survival of the episode is a miracle.
My new essay on smallpox, titled: A face is something that sticks in mind: Rethinking Smallpox has been accepted into Amazon Shorts program.
My editor Daniel noted, "this is a fantastic, lyrical, and memorable piece".
I think you will like the piece too. I will keep this blog posted when the piece is live on Amazon Shorts.
