Fiction as a Tool for Empathy
Rebekah Fowler ❤️
Kate Towle Yes, @Michael Skoler , my book closely parallels my life (though I take fictional liberties), especially my relationship with my father and the lessons he taught me about interracial friendship and building community. My father was ahead of his time, making it seem commonplace to be the only white family working alongside the Black community to nurture relationships and bringing me to the local prison for concerts which I greatly enjoyed. One special story that emerged as I was writing the... [ more ]

Mind your manners? What manners?

Barbara Stolp Once I muttered under my breath the word, "please" because a passenger on a bus called out to the driver, "Yo! Back door!" Then I realized I was treading on dangerous ice. It's on the public buses that I find rudeness can often be a matter of quietly ignoring a senior or handicapped person who needs a seat. I have often spoken gently to the crowd, "Do any of you young, strong and beautiful folks want tp give a seat to ...?" Usually gets someone up. I have also encountered a couple folks who... [ more ]

True Joy In Marriage Is Found On The Far Side Of Sacrificial Service
Jeudy Mom Congrats Maria! Yes, Love that book by Keller! I feel the popular verses on love by apostle Paul in 1 Corinthians 13 speaks to sacrificial love and greater. Marriage is a beautiful, vulnerable and challenging all at the same time. I loved and greatly appreciated our Pre-Marital counseling we received by our marriage mentors. Among the many things we learned through our counseling was that we are two completely different and opposite people! Understanding our differences, our weaknesses and... [ more ]

SUZANNE MILLER Hello Greg. I love your art. So many of your painting speak directly to my life. While those with a nautical theme depict calm water, they all take me back to my days on research and fishing boats off the Alaskan coast. The one that first appears with the red and white and all the radio equipment take me back to days spent on Coast Guard vessels. The First Day of School takes me to the Big Hole Valley of Montana where split rail fences are the norm. The black lab with the wood duck, the red... [ more ]

The Power Of Music And El Rey
Frances Kraft @André Gonzales I have read your beautiful blog several times to be able to absorb its beauty and meaning. I\'m so sorry for the loss of your Tías and of Vicente Fernández. People like them have such an impact when they\'re alive and leave a legacy that will continue to live on in those whose lives they\'ve touched. I\'m so grateful to you for sharing this moment with us. [ more ]

Shaylyn Romney Garrett Thanks for this, Roger. The work is both simpler and more challenging than we think. You're absolutely right that this is what will most likely bring about a greater sense that we are all in this together. [ more ]

When Joining A Hispanic Family, Watch Out For The “Chancla”
Adilio Alfaro @Jeff Fuhrman Cook if you want to, grill if you can, but don’t suggest store-bought flour tortillas are “fine,” ever. (If they’re not made with masa, they’re not tortillas!) - Ahhh yes, I can vividly hear my mothers voice saying this to me, so true! Thank you for sharing your story. Coming from a Hispanic household has really taught me to respect each other's chanclas. [ more ]

America, Tear Down This Wall
Marc Wong I use safe driving not just as a metaphor, but also an action plan to solve our problems. We know how to get along on the roads. We can inspire people to get along in society. Teach everyone to listen (yield), check biases (blind spots), and reject ideological rage (road rage). Safe driving is proven, familiar, and not favored by any “side”. We have lots of agreement in the need and the ways to make sharing roads easier. We can tap into this shared goodwill and culture to introduce much... [ more ]
