Whether you are a Protester, Federal Employee, Immigrant or Refugee, #resist & know your rights with information from the ACLU.

Since there is more information for Immigrants and Refugees concerning their rights, you will find two flyers at the end of the post: one for rights at home and one when traveling.

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

Give the Gift that Gives

I had a lovely holiday and hope all my friends and family were able to spend time with family and friends during this holiday season (in person, over the phone or with holiday cards).

In this season of giving, I have to share one of my gifts because I hope it becomes a family tradition for us and for many others: giving gifts through Heifer International. My mom gave me a “Flock of Hope,” a flock of ducks, a flock of chicks and bees.

Please consider starting this gift-giving tradition for the holidays and throughout the year.

Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and Peace to you and yours.

A Flock of Hope donation is a remarkable gift that can lift a family from hunger and poverty and ensure their future. –Heifer International Catalog

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

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.

Angry Activists VS Smug Sheep #DemExit

It’s amazing to me that people who support Hillary Clinton, a cheating liar, can be so smug and self-righteous; but I guess their votes were counted, and they don’t have the capacity for outrage for those who were unable to vote.

I wanted to vote in the primaries, but I couldn’t. Like many others, I was disenfranchised and because of that, there is no way I’m going to give my vote to the DNC, a party who should be jailed for voter fraud. I’m angry at and disappointed by the leaders of the DNC, especially President Obama. You allowed voter suppression and disenfranchisement, fraud and collusion. When I voted for hope and change, I thought it would be positive change, not a war monger and thief’s coronation.

At least we have a chance with #Berners who won’t lie down and accept the lesser of two evils for President of our country.

So, we know the two-party system is corrupt; it’s time to just say no to parties, reverting to #OnePersonOneVote in a #DemExit. But first, please sign this petition to investigate DNC election fraud.

Thank you, Bernie and Jane Sanders, for waking citizens up and fighting for the future of America.

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
