Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

The push for private / charter schools continues in Mississippi. Remember who wants to undermine affordable public education and get some of our tax dollars from owning schools as opposed to citizens owning their own schools.

Possible Motive Uncovered In Sandy Hook Massacre (UPDATE)

Possible Motive Uncovered In Sandy Hook Massacre (UPDATE) | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Nancy Lanza, the mother of the Sandy Hook shooter, was in the process of having her son committed to a psychiatric facility when he went on the mass shooting spree, a lifelong family acquaintance told Fox News.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I think the issue is more about the stigma of mental illness and health treatment for mental and emotional problems than guns in most all these cases. Lack of strong crisis management and guidance as individual work through hardships in a world where many are not close to family or even old friends as they go through a crisis in health, relationships or finances can make management of these events and the life of those effected a challenge to society. This is the real discussion far more than guns. Confronting personal and cross cultural HATE, FEAR and RESENTMENT is a church, community, educational and media challenge.

Laughter on a train

Contagious laughter on a commuter train in East Anglia. One person starts laughing at something funny in his smart phone, and within minutes virtually the whole train is laughing too.

 

This says more about our brains being hard wired for cummunal living than humor, but is interesting from the viewpoint of happiness. It is a genuinely happy event - even watching it had me laughing


Via Peter Shanks
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is something we need to to support as a mass movement at least once a week! Laughing hard and long enough to get others to do the same.
