My progress ain't your progress because I am not you but don't tear down what I have built to make yours look better per you! In life your goal may not be the same as others for we know not what the next moment will bring! so even if you see your sister or brother down lift them up the best you can and it's not always about the dollars you don't have where you live or what you dont personally have or do have because a hug, words of encouragement, a smile from even a strangers face day's to the persons that at least some body cares!

Having to ask permission unjustly has worse effects that is more than shameful to say but the effects of it truly can be seen and heard by the changes negatively! Just saying this article touched my more than frustrations per and because of Wilson County Schools,NC law firm Schwartz&Shaw attorneys including Rachel B. Hitch and her 2/18/13 dated letter of sanctions imposed unjustly during NC OAH court case when I was her opposing party , Prose Rep for and during NC OAH court case 13-EDC-07545. It continues to destroy my school age children leaving them with dead futures because the same letter denies them equal access to enroll and attend Wilson County Public Schools,NC for years now and continuing with NO EDUCaTION at ALL '  NC public schools choice and unjust style! Added the truth hurts in ways I just don't have the words to say added in the state of NC the NC public schools employees/officials are exempt from criminal prosecution, for their years of committing the crime Truancy! There are no law on the book to use to file the Truancy charge by. Dead children dont need and education but watching my children and their futures be murdered by no education at all but that to is and fear that must be dealt with in a manner that brings resolve for it's time for overcoming ALL that must be and living the life God  STYLE!

(From the article): To foster sharing, it’s important to foster connections with others and remind one another that we’re more alike than we think. To do just that, try to find five things in common with co-workers, people you disagree with or even people you’re meeting for the first time. You can do this formally, in small groups to ‘break the ice,’ or on your own, when your courage to connect is low. Go beyond the obvious – things people can see, such as hair color or eye color. But instead look for answers for something beyond the surface, likes and dislikes you both might share.

Good to know! Pleasing every body all the time can kill you! And they live on considering yourself at times is not selfish but life saving!  Your/our own!  Has anyone ever said if you die I want replace you because there just is no one who can do the job just like you! Then you find yourself bedding A day off and find they have your replacement on speed dial. It's excellent to do your best but then again we all know our best will not please everybody as there are those who are not pleased with themselves and you will kill you trying to please them when it's impossible to do. They do not know what pleases them.
