quote_the real things are simple_laura ingalls wilder


This video will lift your spirits, make you tear up (especially if you are an empathetic person), and restore your faith in humanity.  It is hard to simplify the concept of Empathy in its broadest sense, but this video will fill your heart and spirit with gladness and a desire to help another.  There are battles that we each face, and most of us do it alone, or struggle in silence.  As you watch this video, and see the faces of the recipients of this kind of compassion and charity towards others, you will see how starved for compassion and a helping hand during daily struggles.  Challenges can cause mental and physical health symptoms, but kindness and empathy create such powerful healing.

Simply acknowledging our humanity, and restoring our faith in the inherent goodness of some people, gives us the strength to keep going when we have witnessed or felt pain.  It is a blessing to know that such people exist and seek opportunities to do good for others and the inspiration to pay it forward.



Thank you for stopping by.  I hope that you enjoy this and share with a friend who needs a lift too.

I do not need to be a refugee to support the right and freedom of faith and religious observance.

I do not need to be gay to support LGBT rights against discrimination.  28 states have no legislation to prevent discrimination in employment or housing.

I do not need to be a cat to support animal rights against cruelty.

I do not need to be adopted to support the rights of those who seek to do so freely.

I do not need to be mentally ill to support legislation for equal health protections and insurance parity.  Nor do I need to be poor to require affordable health care, period.

But, if I were in need of understanding, empathy, and community support, I would not want to be afraid to speak up because I could lose my home, my job, my community rights, or legal representation.

Stereotypes continue because they are repeated, not because they are necessarily true. There is no wall high enough to limit extremism, ignorant discrimination, or racial epithets.  Supporting terrorist organizations does not reduce the killing of civilians or create any balance of power.  Ignoring the past does not cause history to change.

Where evil lurks, every time we turn a blind eye, it continues to grow.  Speaking out is a privilege, yet it is one that many of us are afraid to utilize for fear of it being held against us in some method of bullying or tyranny.

I do not have to agree with someone else’s opinion to let them have one of their own.  But, I pray that I do not have to be afraid to express mine.




Thank you for stopping by.
