History of the word Pandemic .

From Kandra Niagara from her friend Nan Hall LInke:I found a most interesting article on the relationship of the god Pan and the words pandemic, panic and pandora that I think you may find interesting.  The word pandemic comes from the Greek word pandemos, translated as all the people.  It was first used in the 17th century reminding us that we are all the same, all on the same journey, and all susceptible to the same forces.  Obviously 2020 is the final exam for this concept.  The god Pan lent his name to the word panic, a state of fear and anxiety that people experienced when he was present.  Pan was a symbol of the primal energy of nature in all of its beauty and savagery, and a reminder that the natural world rules.  Pandemics return us to the reality of nature:  as we stay at home air pollution is decreasing, birds are singing and we have the opportunity to return to quiet and stillness and the reality that we cannot control the natural world.  I am reminded of the term in most contracts that excludes Force Majeure from liability.  We are there now for sure.  There is another goddess with a similar name, Pandora, which means remedy, a panacea or a cure all.  Her symbol reminds us that creativity is the child of chaos so pay attention to the amazing cures which come from this pandemic.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking .

I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
