Making Room for Love

Enlightening, powerful and thought-provoking! Take a few minutes and read, then please share. As Cari Aiken points out, it’s pertinent for our world to take personal steps in our own individual lives to show others love and compassion. As we each focus our energy on love and empathy, “We can be triumphant”. It’s not too late to make our world a better place. But we all need to do our part. Try and let go of that hatred instilled in us by the government and media outlets. Let us be united.

Unus pro omnibus, omnes pro uno!

The Many Peaces of Me

This time of year, on and around the anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, is difficult.  It is a difficult time for millions of people both in the U.S. and around the world.  The reasons and the emotions each of us feel about the events of that day vary greatly, but I’m going to tell you why it is so very difficult for me.

Let me start by explaining how I felt the day this happened.  I was, as everyone else was, horrified by the images of this awful attack.  It shook me to the core, and it forever ruined that false sense of security I had that we were immune from this sort of thing in this country.  I was mad as hell.  I was extremely angry.  I wanted to go after whomever was behind this.  I hated them.  I actually felt hate in my heart for the people…

Too Tired To Complain

Please help if you can. Thank you.

Sir Dale Little Ear's Daily Bitch

Hi, this is Dale’s Mommy. Dale is too tired and sick to complain. In fact, it has been a long time since he even pawed in his blog. It’s hard to be happy when you don’t feel good.

Dale is ready to cross the bridge and be with his brother Sammy. Sadly, I do not have the funds to help him right now and not sure he can wait. He is suffering and it is heartbreaking.

If you spare a donation or share his GoFundMe, here is the direct link:

Dale and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts for caring.

Loving & Understanding an Empath by Alex Myles

“There is no need to feel ostracised or unwelcome, while there’s a little chance an empath will let you fully in to their special interest, it is far more likely they will gain more pleasure when they are wrapped up in it by themselves. This is not selfish or inconsiderate, it is just simply how the empath’s heart and spirit operate.

If they have a connection to something, it is intense and they will very likely wish to delve as deeply into it as is possible. Passions are a great energy release and empaths will possibly feel as though they zone-out while immersed, and they will very likely lose all track of time. Allow them to take pleasure in it, and with the free time this has created, take up interests separately rather than allowing resentment or frustration to build.” – Alex Myles

We Don’t Need No Thought Control

A Buick in the Land of Lexus

we-dont-need-no-thought-contro

Our kids are in CRISIS.

I work with teenagers in an affluent suburban area.

They don’t comprehend what they read. They use calculators to multiply 10 x 10. The average high school junior has no clue what the word “diligent” means.

They write essays resembling those of a 5th grader. About how Albert Einstein discovered electricity.

In tests administered in reading, science and math to 15 year-olds globally, we are behind TWENTY NINE countries in math. And our kids’ performance in reading and science is  not much better. And yet, American investment in education is unrivaled, globally.

Are you scared yet?

We lead the world in the consumption of illegal recreational drugs. And one of the chief sales outlets?

Our SCHOOLS.

Our teenage suicide rate is the highest in the world.

EVERY DAY there are over 5,400 suicide attempts by kids in grades 7 – 12.

NOW are you scared?

The two places teenagers…

The Big C – The Battle Doesn’t End After Treatment

Crooked Tales by Jennifer L Thorpe

I beg you all to read this article attached. PLEASE! If not now, then save it for later. If you know anyone who has had cancer and was blessed enough to survive, this is a must read. In fact, you know me so that is reason enough to take a few minutes out of your day and read this.

If you don’t know anyone, then still READ. Chances are you will know someone one day. However, I don’t wish that on my worst of enemies.

Although this woman was diagnosed with a different form of cancer and her treatments where far longer and more intense than mine, what she says is all too familiar for me and most other people who have walked the cancer battle path. I have a hard time explaining to those around me and this woman has put it in a nutshell.

I was diagnosed…
