Share Your World – January 30, 2017

site974athleticshoespic1-0164502401db8aaa5e700b877d61771aWhat is the most incredible natural venue that you’ve ever seen in person?

The Grand Canyon back in either 2000 or Summer 2001.

How many siblings do you have? What’s your birth order? 

One. My brother Stephen. I am the oldest. Stephen is two years younger than me.

If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?

Probably a sneaker or sandals. Not sure what brand. Maybe Reebok or New Balance. Sneakers signal spring, summer and fall. An opportunity to go walking because the weather has warmed up.

Right now I mostly wear my Ugg boots because of the cold and inclement weather. Even though I was born and raised in New York I loathe and despise winter. Looking forward to wearing my sneakers and then my sandals.

What is the strangest/weirdest thing you have ever eaten?

Squid, when I was in Spain.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

That’s difficult to answer because there has been so much upheaval in the country due to these horrible polices which are adversely affecting my Muslim friends. Especially my Iranian girlfriend and co-worker who is now in a bind. She is hurting therefore I am hurting. Best I’ve been able to do so far is to share the situation via my blog and to organize a Prayer Chain for her and all Muslim/Arabic peoples worldwide. All are welcome to join the Prayer Chain no matter what religious faith that you practice.

I have friends from Iran, Iraq and Yemen. I also know people from the Sudan. All honest hardworking, kind, gentle and compassionate folks. So I guess the answer is that I’m glad that I have friends from all races and religions. I extend my Welcome and Love to all! I have been to both Hindu and Buddhist Houses of Worship. So I’m glad that I can pray for all my co-workers and friends.

Can’t say Looking forward to because I don’t know what is going to happen but My prayer, wish and deepest desire is that this Muslim Ban will be lifted and once again my Muslim and Arab friends will be able to travel freely and can stop living in fear.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Breaking News: Brooklyn Judge Stops Trump’s Immigration Ban


Good News!!

Gronda Morin

donald-trump-signing-orders1485289256441On Friday, Mr. Trump issued an executive order banning immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim countries from being able to enter the USA (including even green card holders) under the auspices of national security. On Saturday, Mr. Trump was hit with a class-action lawsuit by the ACLU, which argued that this executive order was unconstitutional.

About an hour ago, Judge Ann Donnelly from the Eastern District of New York (federal court in Brooklyn) agreed with the ACLU, and issued a national injunction staying enforcement of Trump’s unconstitutional order anywhere in the country. Under this injunction, no one can be removed from the United States solely by virtue of President Trump’s Executive Order, and the Government must even provide the ACLU with a list of names of people who have been affected.

President Trump’s unconstitutional move was meant to please his followers despite the fact that there have been no refugees from any of…

The Legacy Called Obama


Forever 44! ♡
President Obama and FLOTUS Mrs. Obama.
Thanks for everything. My heroes! ☆♡♡♡♡

She is Terri Linton

From the moment I awoke, angst wrapped itself around me.  This was the day I, and countless people around the world, never wanted to see. This was the day Barack and Michelle Obama would bid our country farewell as President and First Lady. 

My emotions were scattered.  In one moment, I felt a hollowness similar to when I lose a loved one.  In another, the now familiar sense of despair about what will become of this country without President Obama’s leadership.  Then in the next, a gripping sadness that the golden era of Obama was now over.  But it was not until I saw the status update of a Facebook friend that I was able to aptly characterize my feelings.  She said that the departure of the Obamas felt like a bad break up.  That is exactly what it felt like.  My…

“It’s hypocrisy to call yourself a Christian and chase away a refugee or someone seeking help, someone who is hungry or thirsty, toss out someone who is in need of my help,” he said. “If I say I am Christian, but do these things, I’m a hypocrite.” Pope Francis, 2016
