Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Sharing stories, listening, while allowing others to express how they see things is a powerfully connective tool we so often forget.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, January 4, 2013 1:15 PM

Now here is a very powerful article about how a story, once it leaves our lips, can be co-opted, changed, and used to divide -- all counter to the original message of the story.


Truly there are significant ethics involved in story sharing -- especially for nonprofits, and with for-profit businesses also. 


Many social issues are emotionally charged. That's the case here where the topic is abortion. Same with guns, drugs, violence, hunger, etc.


Look beyond the abortion topic here and really hear the message about story sharing ethics.


When nonprofits share the stories of those they serve -- or highlight a social problem -- ethics become critically important.


When businesses share employee or customer stories and do not pay attention to the ethics of story sharing, they are in for a backlash.

Be an ethical story sharer. Do the right thing.

That is so true Monica! I love playing with listening activities so I can be more aware of my surroundings, and more aware of what people are really trying to tell me. And of course marketing without listening is just broadcasting, which won't take you very far!

Supreme Court order may cause travel chaos

Supreme Court order may cause travel chaos | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The Supreme Court's decision green-lighting parts of President Donald Trump's controversial travel ban Monday saved many of the prickly questions about the constitutionality of the executive order for another day -- but legal experts say that the court's compromise ruling raises other more practical headaches (and potentially further litigation) for travelers this summer.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Is that a surprise from a vague ruling.

Koch network withholding support of Senate health-care bill, pushing for changes

Koch network withholding support of Senate health-care bill, pushing for changes | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
“In all candor, we’ve been disappointed that movement is not more dramatic toward a full repeal or rollback (of the Affordable Care Act). But we’re not walking away,” said Tim Phillips, the president of Americans for Prosperity.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
The real owners of the Republican Party are trying to get their policy makers on track. They paid to get their men and women in the right spots in state and notional government for decades and now they have a few that have decided to grow their own brain, think about the people they were actually elected to represent instead of manipulate and do the right thing for them. Excerpt: "As hundreds of donors gathered Saturday for a three-day seminar organized by billionaire industrialist Charles Koch, leaders from the constellation of groups that support his agenda outlined concerns about the draft bill." They want medical care to stay in the emergency room where they rarely sit and wait....and real care to be for those that can afford it. They are Libertarians and are not their brother's keeper for sure. People are here to keep them and serve them.

The GOP health plan would scale back coverage through the insurance markets and make fundamental changes to the broader Medicaid program
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Excerpt: Not only would the GOP legislation scale back coverage through the insurance markets and phase out the Medicaid expansion, it would also make fundamental changes to the broader Medicaid program. The federal-state program covers low-income people, from newborns to elderly nursing home residents, from special-needs kids to young adults caught in the opioid epidemic.

Opinion | The Democrats’ Religion Problem

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Wrong thinking in this opinion piece. Plus black southern women that helped Hilary so much in the south early on said the main reason they did not vote for Bernie was that they were actually not familiar with him nor were they aware of his civil rights background. The democrats made lots a headway in strong Red districts and all four special elections.
