MY TARGET FINDS II

GOD IS A WOMAN

This has got to be one of my favourite quotes as I find the notion that before a man can get to me, he has to go through God extremely appealing. This is what should have happened the first time around but I digress... Ariana Grande recently put out a song with this title and initially when I heard it, I liked it-- the rhythm and overall vibe of the track appealed to my musical sensibilities until it dawned on me to ask myself whether this was actually blasphemous. I know what you're thinking and no, I'm typically not one of those people who make a big deal out of everything so don't roll your eyes just yet. I wanted to understand the lyrics of the song properly so I googled it and I'll share just the chorus with you:

SICKLE CELL- AN EXPENSIVE DISEASE TO HAVE

Treating Sickle Cell is quite expensive especially with the frequent need for hospitalization and medication required to keep crisis and pain at bay. In a weird way, this is much better because only a few decades ago, the mortality rate for children with SCD was high, particularly in underdeveloped regions. At the same time, longer lifespans have brought about challenges with healthcare providers such as adequate follow-up with children diagnosed with the disease at childbirth, availability of medication like hydroxyurea amongst others.
