They Never Saw a Child : Ruby Bridges Interview

In Inspiration, News on November 16, 2013 at 12:34 pm

Every time I watch videos taken during the Civil Rights Era I cringe at the images, I feel sadness that any human being is treated so poorly by communities and I feel shame. I also feel hope, because while there is still much more work to be done there has been progress. Yes, there are still injustices and prejudices but there is also a deepening of acceptance in society not just for people who’s skin is a different color than our own but for those who have a different sexual preference or a different religion. For that reason I have hope. I know I have taught my children tolerance and compassion and that is where change starts in our homes. You have to see the child to understand where change needs to begin.

Mamming: Will This Become an Olympic Sport?…For Mom Day 25

In Breast Cancer on October 25, 2013 at 7:07 am

 

Well, here’s the story. The new trend sweeping the internet is “Mamming”. Hmmm. Michele Jaret and Michelle Lamont who work for a NY ad agency came up with the idea. Mamming is done by resting your breast on random objects and then posting a picture to Instagram. No, really.

Michelle Lamont is a breast cancer survivor and she is hoping that mamming will help to increase early detection rates.

BTW your boob stays clothed.

Have you mammed? Would you? I haven’t decided. I think my mom would have found this to be hysterically funny.

I am so very fortunate to have many, many friends of every ethnic and economic background both heterosexual and homosexual.  They are wonderful people. It makes my head spin when I hear racist comments…when I see children shunned because their clothes are from a discount store….when parents, teachers, neighbors, bosses, religious leaders and all manners of judgmental people tell another human being they need to be something they are not.

I watched this video and it broke my heart that so many young people would be put through such a program at an age when they are trying to figure themselves out. Shame on this man. Shame on a society that thrives on hating others. Shame. Shame. Shame.

Who Keeps You From Falling?

As I watched this video I thought about how sadly disappointing this must have been for this young man

but then

once I saw the second half I realized how lucky he was to have had that moment that day with his father.

I remember a very tough period of my life when my mother from several hundred miles away told me that I was the strongest woman she had ever known. That gave me the strength to get through that day and many more since.

When has someone helped you get through a difficult moment in your life? How did that change you?
