South Carolina Senator Lyndsey Graham has been diagnosed with COVID-19 seven months after being vaccinated for the Chinese Virus.
After spending time on Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin’s boat over the weekend, Graham, a Republican indicated he was experiencing flu like symptoms.
‘I feel like I have a sinus infection and at present time I have mild symptoms,’ he continued. ‘I will be quarantining for ten days.’
“I was just informed by the House physician I have tested positive for COVID-19 even after being vaccinated,’ Graham said in a statement on Monday.
“Senate Manchin is fully vaccinated and following the CDC guidelines for those exposed to a COVID positive individual,” a Manchin spokesperson said.
‘I am very glad I was vaccinated because without vaccination I am certain I would not feel as well as I do now. My symptoms would be far worse,’ the Graham said.
5 Star Review ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ by Mary E. Trimble
An ambitious, well-written account of Texas history.
Cynthia Leal Massey has written an intriguing, scholarly work, What Lies Beneath: Texas Pioneer Cemeteries and Graveyards.
The introduction alone is fascinating. Massey, a born and raised Texan, traveled thousands of miles to visit more than a hundred Texas cemeteries, graveyards and burial grounds. She recalls many peaceful visits to Texas cemeteries as well as some harrowing experiences. Massey’s extensive research is impressive as she tells the story of the founding of Texas through those buried in pioneer cemeteries— some stately, some abandoned—from the early days through the nineteenth century.
The large volume is enriched with many pictures reproduced from archives as well as pictures of grave sites as seen today. Throughout the book are text boxes with captivating subjects, gems such as the devastating effects of yellow fever, the difference between cemeteries and graveyards, and the history of the Texas Rangers, to name only a few. These pictures and text boxes further convey the cultural history of Texas from the period before and during its years as a Republic (1836 – 1845) and after it became the 28th state in 1845. The guide also provides descriptions of headstone features and symbols traditionally used by early Texans.
The book is organized using Texas Heritage Trail Regions, then cities, towns, unincorporated communities and forts. As the many graves are visited, the reader is taken back in time while learning about individual attitudes and challenges, and how those people helped shape what is Texas today.
What Lies Beneath: Texas Pioneer Cemeteries and Graveyards is an ambitious, well-written account of Texas history. Massey’s background in journalism and love of history shine through the pages of this valuable resource of early Texas families and their communities.
