July 4th – Independence Day

Happy 4th! I hope you are all enjoying the day.

It would not be Independence Day with out this unforgettable scene from ID4:

Speaking of Independence Day – I congratulate the citizens of Egypt for their persistance in holding their elected officials accountable to their promises and actions.

Obama administration backed Egyptian president, Mohamed Morsi, ushered into power with the so called ‘Arab Spring’ has been ousted as president by Egyptian military leadership.

The celebrations in Tahir Square are incredible! Check out this video posted on Sky News of the Egyptians celebrating the removal of Morsi.

Doug Ross has a gallery of photos of protestors in Tahir Square holding signs that are not deferential to Obama.

The damage done by the Obama administration and then secreatary of state Hilary Clinton with their Middle East doctrine will take decades of careful handling to repair.

Your thoughts on Egypt’s Independence Day?


Happy Labor Day!

Best. Birthday. Ever.

Calla Lily

I can honestly say that this has been my most fabulous birthday to date.

Friends, family and friends I’ve yet to meet took time out of their busy day to share a random act of kindness in honor of my birthday. Indeed, they made the world a more happier place on August 20th. I cannot think of a more profound gift to mark my birthday and I am so grateful to those who participated.

Thanks to family members, you know who you are, for your acts of kindness yesterday.

Thank you Sherri for your beautiful and inspiring art and your kind words of support.

Thank you Trevor for the blood donation and prayer.

Thank you Alli for taking time to call a relative.

Thank you Lisa for paying for a strangers cup of coffee.

As for myself, I made sure to share words of encouragement to a struggling runner during a quick 4 mile run yesterday. I know how motivating this words are to those just beginning their running journey and I’m happy to give back when I can.

Oh boy, I believe this is the beginning of new tradition – the birthday random act of kindness. Just imagine everyone adopting this tradition –  could world peace be this easy?  Wouldn’t it be great if was :)


Celebrate My Birthday with an Act of Kindness

Colorful Cupcakes

A few days ago, I discovered a new(ish) feature on Google Plus called ‘Events’. This feature allows the user to create a virtual event, invite friends from their circles, capture photos during the event and post them to one shared photo collection on Google +.

The video below gives a good review of what is possible using the Event feature:

My curiosity over this feature lead me to create an event – my birthday. On a whim I invited a few hundred people from my circles and did not expect any replies. Lo and behold, people did reply and I had to figure out the next step.

I had a thought this afternoon while driving home from work  - why not ask those who accepted the invitation to  donate an act of kindness in my name on my birthday, August 20th. No matter where they are in the world, they can celebrate my birthday with the gift of kindness towards others. How cool is that!

Tonight I posted on G+ this message:

For those wondering what the plan is or what gift should I bring – the only gift I ask is an act of kindness done in my name on my birthday – August 20th. Wherever you are in the world on August 20th; dedicate a moment, a few hours or the entire day to an act of kindness. Volunteer at an animal shelter, hug your parents, check on an elderly neighbor, donate books, clothing, or food where needed. Indeed, use the day to do what you love. Let me know what you have done on August 20th – leave a comment, link a photo or a blog post sharing your act of kindness.

For those few people not signed up for Google plus,  feel free to join in! You can leave a message or blog/photo link in the comment section here.  I plan on curating the responses and creating a blog post to display all of them.

If you’re interested in participating, thank you!  To participate: On Monday, August 20th take some time during the day to donate an act of kindness, then let me know what you did by leaving a comment, photo or blog post link in the comment section of this blog post or on Google Plus.  I’ll stick this post at the top of the blog on August 20th to make it easier to post your story.



Happy Independence Day!

Where liberty dwells, there is my country. ~Benjamin Franklin


Happy 4th!

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

~Erma Bombeck

Wishing all my readers a wonderful Independence Day!


Speaking of fireworks – Pamela Geller rocked Independence Hall with her speech in Philadelphia:


New Year 2012

Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky,
The flying cloud, the frosty light;
The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.

Ring out the grief that saps the mind,
For those that here we see no more,
Ring out the feud of rich and poor,
Ring in redress to all mankind.

Ring out a slowly dying cause,
And ancient forms of party strife;
Ring in the nobler modes of life,
With sweeter manners, purer laws.

Ring out the want, the care the sin,
The faithless coldness of the times;
Ring out, ring out my mournful rhymes,
But ring the fuller minstrel in.

Ring out false pride in place and blood,
The civic slander and the spite;
Ring in the love of truth and right,
Ring in the common love of good.

Ring out old shapes of foul disease,
Ring out the narrowing lust of gold;
Ring out the thousand wars of old,
Ring in the thousand years of peace.

Ring in the valiant man and free,
The larger heart, the kindlier hand;
Ring out the darkness of the land,
Ring in the Christ that is to be.

- Alfred Lord Tennyson
