Wild Fact About Me I grew up in Las Vegas and haven't been back since high school!
My Philosophy If I can stop one Heart from breaking
I shall not live in vain
If I can ease one Life the Aching,
or cool one Pain,
Or help one fainting Robin
into his Nest again,
I shall not live in Vain.
-Emily Dickinson
What Gives Me Hope Hands reaching across cultures, languages, countries, to connect to each other in a recognition of our needs and our humanity. This is a great place to discover people and ways to make that happen.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by " It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest wall of oppression and resistance. "
-- Robert F. Kennedy; South Africa, 1966

Quotation What the soul knows is often unknown to the man who has a soul. We are infinitely more than we think. --Kahlil Gibran

The great end of art is to strike the imagination with the power of a soul that refuses to admit defeat even in the midst of a collapsing world.
-- Friedrich Nietzsche

Success: To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded! --Ralph Waldo Emerson

Power is of two kinds. One is obtained by the fear of punishment and the other by acts of love. Power based on love is a thousand times more effective and permanent then the one derived from fear of punishment.
-Mohandas Gandhi
