Never be afraid to #raise your voice for #honesty and #truth and #compassion against injustice and lying and greed. If people all over the world...would do this, it would change the earth.~William Faulkner
Any #people anywhere, being inclined & having the power, have the right to #RiseUp, and #ShakeOff the existing government, and form a new one…This is a most valuable (a most #sacredRight) right, which we hope & believe, is to #liberate the world. Abraham Lincoln
#Adele #HometownGlory #Resist You get the people and the government.Everybody taking different sides.Shows that we ain't gonna stand shit.Shows that we are #united.Shows that we ain't gonna take it,Shows that we ain't gonna stand shit. Shows that we are united
Adele's song "Hometown Glory" on taking a stand.
I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque
I love to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades
I like it in the city when two worlds collide
You get the people and the government
Everybody taking different sides
Any people anywhere, being inclined & having the power, have the right to rise up, & shake off the existing government, & form a new one that suits them better. This is a most valuable - a most sacred right - a right, which we hope and believe, is to liberate the world. Abraham Lincoln

#RiseUp #TheResistance #AndraDay lyrics: You're broken down and tired;Of living life on a merry-go-round;And you can't find the fighter; But I see it in you so we gonna walk it out;And move mountains;We gonna walk it out;And move mountains;And I'll rise up; I'll rise like the day;I'll rise up;I'll rise unafraid;I'll rise up
And I'll do it a thousand times again;And I'll rise up;High like the waves;I'll rise up;In spite of the ache;I'll rise up;And I'll do it a thousands times again;For you
#TheResistance #NotMyPresident #MLK There comes a time when one must take the position that is neither safe nor politic nor popular, but he must do it because conscience tells him it is right. Martin Luther King Jr.
#Resistance #PutinsPuppet #MLK On some positions, cowardice asks the question, is it expedient? And then expedience comes along and asks the question, is it politic? Vanity asks the question, is it popular? Conscience asks the question, is it right?" - Martin Luther King Jr

“People fail to get along because they #fear each other; they fear each other because they don't know each other; they don't know each other because they have not communicated with each other.” Martin Luther King Jr.
“Everybody can be great...because anybody can #serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of #grace. A soul generated by #love.” #MLK

#Informed-citizens are the #backbone of #democracy. #Ignorance is an evil weed, which #dictators may cultivate among their dupes, but which #noDemocracy can afford among its citizens. William Henry Beveridge (1897–1963), British Economist, From Full Employment in a Free Society(1944)
#Liberty cannot be preserved without a general #Knowledge among the people, who have a right. . . and a desire to know; but besides this, they have a right, and indisputable, #unalienable, #indefeasible, #divine #right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge, I mean of the #characters and #conduct of their #rulers.” John Adams
Chairman of Clinton’s campaign urged U.S. intelligence on Wednesday to get an ironclad agreement from Donald Trump that he wouldn't leak information to the Russians before providing him with presidential candidate briefings.

#Adele Spent Whole Day Crying #Grammys 2016 http://usm.ag/1RPSP9U @Adele Please don't cry. U make people happy every day. I couldn't listen to music after my Dad died & since your 25 album came out I can. U amaze me every time I listen to your music which tends to be 24/7. 😇
Don’t look back with tears, #look #forward with #joy; and grab every bit of happiness you can. Don’t waste your life being afraid to #try #new #things, and don’t be afraid of rejection, be afraid of rejecting what you know is right, in your heart.

@RomonaWray #Wordpress blog. How did you #embed the #Goodreads2015ReadingChallenge widget? I've looked all over Wordpress and Goodreads and can only find the one for the current book I'm reading. It would be great to "brag" about my progress in my 2015 challenge. I read far more than #bookworms and librarians put together. It's just a guess. I'm not sure there are statistics on that sort of thing. Especially #bookworms.
“She was a stay-at-home mom who’d completed her job. Lost her job. A thundercloud of self-pity built in her emotional sky, but she fled from it, tried to outrun it, by lecturing herself aloud. “You haven’t lost your family. They just don’t live with you anymore. In lots of ways, that’s a good thing.”
― Emily March, Heartache Falls
"I shall tell you what I believe. I believe God is a librarian. I believe that literature is holy...it is that best part of our souls that we break off and give each other, and God has a special dispensation for it, angels to guard its making and its preservation." http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/487129 via @goodreads
@susanwiggs Bittersweet Moments: I'm so sorry for your loss. I lost my father in 2012. Anyone who says we can "get over" losing those you love deeply is not even half right. Time does help & the memories ARE sweet. That part of your dad will always be with you.
“Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about those who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it.” ~ Harvey MacKay
@RandPaul Your comments about disability are offensive to say the least: "You know, the thing is is that with all of these programs, there's always somebody who's deserving and everybody in this room knows somebody who is gaming the system," said Paul. "What I tell people is, 'If you look like me and you hop out of your truck, you shouldn't be getting a disability check.' You know, over half the people on disability are either anxious or their back hurts. Join the club! [the group laughs] Who doesn't get up a little anxious for work every day and their back hurts?! Everybody over 40 has a back pain."
Not every disability is discernible with the naked eye. Chronic pain is disabling. I am one of millions impacted by this. Fungal meningitis which I contracted due to lenient government regulations has complicated my disability.
Learn about disabilities. If you want to represent the country, you need to know who you are representing. Every single one.
Rambling thoughts: "And, really, she did like Chandler, too. She did. What woman wouldn’t? He was handsome and successful, a member of one of Nashville’s oldest and most prominent families. But she’d never felt anything more than a friendly sort of affection for him, and even that usually only came about after she’d consumed a good, dry Manhattan. Preferably during a two- for- one happy hour. At any rate, she’d never experienced for Chandler the kind of feeling a woman should have for a man she thought about marrying, that breathless kind of wanting, that aching sort of yearning, that endless, ferocious passion, that insistent, frenzied, needy demand, that hot, sweaty, wanton arousal that made a woman just want to rip off her clothes and wrap her naked body around a man and feed herself to him whole, that...that… Ah, where was she? Oh, yes. At any rate, she’d never experienced that sort of, um, feeling for Chandler that a woman should have for a man with whom she intended to spend the rest of her life." http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/7032927 via @goodreads
