Don’t let the negative actions of a few dictate your response in kind.  The only way a civilized society rises above is when rational, intellectual debate trumps irrational, animalistic behavior which is destructive at its core.  

Only when we see with our hearts, and listen with compassion, will we rise above the hate. 

Forward-thinking requires strategic planning through education.  Not necessarily ‘groupthink’ rather working together as a unified team and proving through pro-active initiative, collaboration, and mutually-beneficial compromise.  

The change begins from within and the ability to roll with the punches of this life; even if things don’t go your way.  

Now is the time; this new generation to work with the baby-boomers in planting seeds of love to grow beautiful roses to replace the weeds of hate.

As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
