Unscramble the Blue Letters

If I was talking to an individual and they said, "Why are vaccines important?" I would say nothing alongside any other answer, I would not in any way fathomably give them answer outside of: people are dying, and that's important. And that children are diyng, and that's important. And that we're having dsisaee otrkauebs that should not be here. And I believe, as John Boyle put it, these diseases should be in hstiory books and not in our communities. So because of that, you need to make a personal decision to stand up for truth. You need to make a personal decision for yourself to say, "This is accurate, this is what's real, and these lies are not OK." Because it sartetd with me doing that on a personal level.
