Wild Fact About Me
My Philosophy As You Sow, So You Reap

Whatever you sow by your actions come back to you. If you make others happy through service, charity and kind acts, you sow happiness like a seed; and it will give you the fruit of happiness. If you make others unhappy through harsh words, insult, ill-treatment, cruel acts, oppression, etc., you sow unhappiness like a seed; and it will give you the fruit of pain, suffering, misery and unhappiness.
What Gives Me Hope Seeing the world through the eyes of my children. An innate & unwavering faith in kindness, empathy, & understanding.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
What/who changed my life and why When I was very young I had dreams of ending hunger & homelessness and achieving world peace. But as I got older that dream faded and was replaced by the American dream of a family, a car, children etc. Priorities Shifted.

Then in January 2009, I lost my older sister Tammy to an accidental multi-prescription drug overdose. And from somewhere deep inside I heard the ear piercing scream of a little girl yell "It's not fair!" And a tide of emotion came flooding out of me so strongly that I wasn't sure I could survive it. . . .
I felt:
* an anger and feeling of injustice that would put you in the running for tantrum of the decade * the rebelliousness of age 7 that says "YOU CANT MAKE ME SHUT UP" * the vulnerability that believes a mothers kiss makes a boo boo better * the compassion given to all living things, rolie-polies included * And I felt alive.

I made a resolution to myself that minute that I would not let my sisters death be in vain. Her death would make way for a legacy of hope and healing. A legacy of change. I would do whatever it took to protect "sisters" from the deadly epidemic of prescription addiction.
And Project My Sisters Keeper was born.
What Bugs Me Apathy, Indifference, Hypocrisy  
Passions Tolerance. Civil Rights. Justice. Love  
What Scares Me most is the day that we stop caring!  
Role Models My Mothers Heart Daughters Innocent Eye  
Quotation I see your true colors shining through,
I see your true colors . . . .
And that's why I love you,
So don't be afraid to let them show,
Your true colors are beautiful . . . . .
Like A Rainbow.

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song.

History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.

There is nothing so pitiful as a young cynic because he has gone from knowing nothing to believing nothing.


Women, if the soul of the nation is to be saved, I believe that you must become its soul.

The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members, ... a heart of grace and a soul generated by love.
