CommonSenseOnComplexIssues-      4MillionStories(#IMeetInterestingPeopleEveryDay)- #AShoutOut to A Hero | CommonSenseOnComplexIssues | Scoop.it



4 Million stories (#IMeetInterestingPeopleEveryday)

I meet interesting people every day.  I meet people who are rich. I meet people who are poor. I meet people who are challenged and I meet people who conquer those challenges. 

It’s courageous in itself to be a parent.   It’s very courageous to be a single mother.  It’s courageous to handle all the issues of being a parent and tackling a serious illness at the same time.

This month is MS month and I personally  want to send out a message to all parents no matter what’s your challenge.  We respect your courage.  Courage that many of these parents go through the day to day as if “Man this is just what I do”.

Claudette Whicker is my friend.  I’m proud to say that (#really).  Claudette is heavily involved in the cause of battling MS.   Claudette is a mother.  Claudette is self employed .Claudette is in school and Claudette battles with MS.

Claudette makes no excuses and she takes no shorts.  She wakes up every day and plays the hand she’s dealt without hesitation.  Now that’s strong.  She’s also a hero ( a superhero to me) who with all of these very serious challenges she deals with on a day to day bases,  finds time to be a good friend.  Man as I’ve grown to know her over time it amazed me of how little of her story I (and many others ) knew.  Why because if you’re dealing with her on a daily,  she’s always asking “What’s up with you”.  Never does she bring you into her situation, she handles hers like a titan. (#Wow).

So like I said, this month is MS month and you’re donations and time to this very serious cause will be so truly appreciated.  Especially by hero’s like Claudette Whicker. 

MS will be having there walk in Piedmont Park April 26th at 10:00 AM.   Lets show the Claudette Whickers of the world that we understand and support their cause.  Imma be there, because I understand , support and appreciate her courage.

I’m ReggieRedd and these are 4MillionStories(#IMeetInterestingPeopleEveryday)

This Radical New Prison Design Could Prevent Prisoners From Coming Back

This Radical New Prison Design Could Prevent Prisoners From Coming Back | CommonSenseOnComplexIssues | Scoop.it

Sometimes people and there solutions amaze me.  Even though this proposed model is wonderful,  why not put the money into real schools and keep them out of prison?  #IJS

Some people don't go to jail because they're bad, they did bad things because they were broke.  #IJS

 

These hardly look like jails.

CSOCI- 4MillionStories- Traffic

CSOCI- 4MillionStories- Traffic | CommonSenseOnComplexIssues | Scoop.it

I once read that a million things are happening to us at one time.  That’s right on this highway we cal life there is a theory that a million events that you’re unaware is targeted in your direction and you are the focal point.  That’s interesting, so you mean we are all like this huge bio orgasmic network of electrons and decisions that all focused at coming home ( you as the focal point).  That’s a lot to prepare for.

That’s why it’s important to know where you’re going so that success can find you. I know some people that do everything in their power to make sure success never finds them (sort of like the Gorgonytes from Toy Soldiers “We’re programmed to fail.

So prepare yourself and do everything in your power to make it easy for success to find you..  Because with a million thing coming at you at one time, the odds are in your favor for success to not only find you in all that traffic but to make sure that you also can also find success.

This sound clip explores some of the politics behind the Center's downfall with Sala Udin, a longtime Pittsburgher and former City Councilman. Udin is a source who I hope to speak with for this project because of his political influence and perspective on why the City Council may not be capable of saving the Center.
