Listen to Kids & Learn Compassion

September 29, 2016 1 comment

It’s sad to see what is going on in the world; but if we want to know what to do, then listen to the kids. The children will show you the compassionate way to help others around the world as well as in our own neighborhoods.

While many American citizens are against accepting Syrian refugees, one little boy contacted President Obama, explaining how his family would adopt a little boy who lost his family. Six-year-old Alex stated, “We will give him a family and he will be our brother.”

Zianna Oliphant chose to address Charlotte’s City Council over the #BlackLivesMatter movement, a struggle impacting so many people. Zianna said:

“I feel like that we are treated differently than other people. I don’t like how we’re treated…We are black people, and we shouldn’t have to feel like this. We shouldn’t have to protest because y’all are treating us wrong. We do this because we need to, and we have rights. I’ve been born and raised in Charlotte, and I never felt this way till now. And I can’t stand how we’re treated. It’s a shame that our fathers and mothers are killed and we can’t see them anymore. It’s a shame that we have to go to their graveyard and bury them and we have tears and we shouldn’t have tears. We need our fathers and mothers to be by our side.” – Zianna Oliphant

So, you can choose to be compassionate. You can choose to make a difference. You can choose to be strong, caring and courageous, like these children, and we will have a better world for it. If you dare to care.

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive. -Dalai Lama

Help Furnish Homes for Formerly Homeless

August 28, 2016 Comments off

Today, I found out about Humble Design, an organization re-purposing donated items to furnish homes for the formerly homeless. I saw the smiles on faces of people who hadn’t had a bed to call their own in over a year, and it touched my heart, so I hope you will support by offering assistance and/or sharing this post.

 

 

Humble Design’s mission: to turn four bare walls into a clean, dignified and welcoming home by re-purposing gently used household goods.

For those of you who can support Humble Design’s Michigan-based organization, thank you, and please consider using this comprehensive list as a guideline to support local charitable organizations, as well.

A Letter to Bernie’s Millennials (from a Bernie Boomer)

Agreed. #FeelTheBern #Bernie2016 #BernieOrBust

Creative by Nature

“I cannot tell you how many times in the last three decades I have heard the Democrats (myself included) lament the absence of the 18-30 year olds. Over and over we said, if they would just show up, we could effect real change. Maybe that was true most of the time back in the day, but there is no denying the fact that you are here now, in formidable numbers, and the Democratic Party has dismissed you entirely.” ~Scout Gerain

I have been considering reaching out to the young people involved in the Bernie campaign for some time.  In light of Hillary’s repeated dismissals of Bernie supporters, combined with President Obama’s impatient demand that BLM activists should “stop yelling and compromise,” I cannot put it off any longer.

I won’t sit idly by without, at the very least, publicly stating how thrilled I am to see you here, on the political…

It’s been a heck of a campaign in more ways than one, and Bernie is the only candidate that has the gumption to be the best candidate, the moral candidate. Bernie knows we need an advocate for the majority to fight big interests who have stolen our country.

Please do not listen to the media and Washington politicians who are bought; instead, place your faith in a man who has fought the good fight from the very beginning. Take a moment and watch a sneak peek of BernTheMovie and while you’re at it, take a look at Bernie’s stance on issues.

What my campaign is about is a political revolution – millions of people standing up and saying, enough is enough. Our government belongs to all of us, and not just the hand full of billionaires. – Bernie Sanders

Volunteer, Foster or Adopt a Pet

January 31, 2015 Leave a comment

If you’re looking for an opportunity to make a difference, why not consider volunteering, fostering, or adopting a pet? With Petfinder.com, you can find an animal shelter or rescue center in your local area. You can donate your time at a shelter or bring a pet home to foster or adopt. This act of kindness can help relieve stress for a pet who is waiting for a loving, caring family, and you will receive the love of a new best friend.

 

My mother and dad were big animal lovers, too. I just don’t know how I would have lived without animals around me. I’m fascinated by them – both domestic pets and the wild community. They just are the most interesting things in the world to me, and it’s made such a difference in my lifetime. – Betty White
