I’ve recently met a woman recovering from ovarian cancer. She was self-employed prior to the diagnosis and so her income dwindle to nothing during the treatment. Today, she found out her car needs repairs and the cost is significant. I know from being unemployed the fear of outstanding bills and needing more than I can afford. I know from watching KT going through her cancer that if I can help I should. I can’t help her the way she needs so I’m putting this out to everyone. Help if you can. Share if you can’t. I think even a small amount from enough people would make a difference.

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” ~ John Quincy Adams
I found this story on Facebook today; just a moment’s curiosity about the video. It’s a story of hope and overcoming, a story about what impossible really is not. Arthur Boorman found people to believe in him and that gave him the strength to change his life. What strength can we give to others just by saying, “Yes, you can.” rather “No, that’s impossible.”
Though much is taken, much abides; and though
We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven; that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.
- Ulysses, Alfred, Lord Tennyson
I stumbled upon this today. It’s one of my favorite philosophical issues: Do unto others as you would have done to you. When we beat people down because we’ve been beaten down, we’re just propagating an unhealthy cycle. The author also summed it up well: Question everything.
“If you can become the leader you ought
to be on the inside, you will be able to
become the person you want on the
outside. People will want to follow you.
And when that happens, you’ll be able
to tackle anything in this world.”
