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.

    1. Thanks my Dear Friend. The saddest part is that mostly Bible Belt Evangelical “Christians” voted this nutcase in. Now I don’t know what Bible they are reading but they are not acting or behaving like Jesus. More like the Pharisees and Saducees that Jesus chastised and exposed!! My Jesus welcomes all. Hindus, Sikhs, Bahai, Buddhist, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Native American/Indigenous Belief Systems. We are all the same in God’s eyes. In the past Black Churches were attacked and burned. Now Mosques!! Disgraceful!! Everyone should be safe in their own House of Worship! Yes we must pray and make sure our elected officials DO NOT allow this religious bigotry. Thanks again for your words of wisdom.

      1. People should be safe in their own House of Worship.. I remember news stories of Black Churches being burnt, in those days new took a week to get here. Australia is not innocent to bigotry either.Our treatment of our indigenous, was and is still not publicised at great deal.Australia day is now up for grabs, trying to change the day which I think is good. 26th January 1777 the day the British arrived with 11 ships and started persecuting the Aboriginals. It should be done in a referendum.

      2. Yes. Similar situation with the Native Americans. They were doing great until Columbus. Many people here want to change Columbus Day to Native American Day. After all 1492 was the beginning of the end for many Native American tribes who were killed off European settlers. No healing can begin until wrong is acknowledged and some sort of attempt to make amends is made.

  1. My sister and I have been discussing this issue. She has many friends in the Syrian refugee community and she is absolutely heartbroken over the policy. We are praying very hard for our country just now.

    1. Many of my co-workers are Muslim. Some are from Iran and Yemen. Also I know people from the Sudan. Yesterday one of my co-workers from Bangladesh told me that his wife is afraid to leave the house because she wears the Hijab and is afraid of being attacked. This administration is just adding its approval to religious discrimination to the already boiling point of the poor race relations in America. Yes prayer is needed.

      1. Prayer is being sent up. Division and darkness are strong powers that flow through our country like a river at flood stage just now. But unity and the light of love are a dam that can push back the strongest torrent. Light doesn’t need to rage against the darkness. It just needs to shine and the darkness is pushed back.
