Filled

Until the great mass of the people shall be filled with the sense of responsibility for each other's welfare, social justice can never be attained. Helen Keller

The world is not short of resource. The only reason we have shortage, is because we have hoarding and waste. Therefore we hold the solution. Rather than Connect the dots, we’d like to create our own, or sit upon someone else's. War is not the answer and neither is complacency, so instead of blowing up our efforts, our manpower and our money, when will we finally be able to use training facilities to train people on the streets and put them to work, and devote portions of our intelligence agencies to working with developing nations governments.

I never forget that I live in a house owned by all of the American people and that I have been given their trust. More importantly however than material gains will be the moral and spiritual value. We must be the great arsenal of democracy. FDR
  • More than 1 billion people around the world live on less than $1 a day.
  • We are encouraging voters to contact their elected officials and the headquarters of candidates running for office to ask what action they will take to help fight global AIDS and extreme poverty and save lives in the world's poorest countries.
  • Together, we're taking a first step toward making fighting global poverty a growing priority for American voters, and as we begin to look toward the 2008 Presidential elections, it's a first effort in a long-term strategy to make the over 1 billion people who live on less than $1 a day part of the election conversation.
  • Africa has been hit harder by the HIV/AIDS virus than any other region of the world. Last year alone, more than 2 million Africans died from AIDS and another 24 million are infected with the HIV virus, approximately 2 million of whom are children.
  • Over one billion people do not have access to clean water. Every 15 seconds, a child dies from a disease associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor hygiene.
  • Africa is home to 80% of the world's 15 million HIV/AIDS orphans.
  • ONE is an effort to rally citizens - ONE by ONE - to fight the emergency of global AIDS and extreme poverty. ONE is a coalition of over 2.4 million people and 100 of the nation's leading relief, humanitarian and advocacy organizations.
On Election Day, like every other day, there will be over 1 billion people around the world living on less than $1 a day. But unlike every other day, my vote can set in motion something that will change that.

As a voter and one of the 2.4 million members of ONE: The Campaign to Make Poverty History, I have been working to make the fight against global AIDS and extreme poverty a part of the election conversation. For the first time in history we have the resources and know-how to end extreme poverty. All we need now is the political will to make it happen and that means voting and holding our leaders accountable. I encourage my fellow voters to contact our candidates and ask them what actions they'll take to help fight global AIDS and extreme poverty.

Beyond the attack ads and partisan sparring filling the airways are the life and death decisions that our newly elected leaders will make on our behalf. Fighting global AIDS and extreme poverty is something we can reach across party lines to do together, and it can make a better, safer world for us all.

Hault the waste of energy. Turn Jealousy to Contentment. Turn Anger to Love. Turn Competition to Peace. Remove the old self. Grace is not opposed to effort, as it is to merit. May I fill the vacancy with the things of that world for I want to be overflowing in the company of those I love; in a short time, we shall arrive.

Global Dwelling

Dive into the world you believe in. And as you carve the life you crave, here's few fun strategies to lighten your days:  Celebrate where you’re from, past and present. Your family and friends, your neighbourhood and neighbours, your school, your city and country, your job, your planet and your creator, have made today possible. Plan and support reunions, milestones and tributes.Seek out people who inspire you and welcome support from unexpected sources, strangers, books and lyrics. Allow chemistry to work its magic; welcome hints and change, no matter how seemingly strange.Live comfortably. Weed out what doesn't work, what doesn't make you thrive, in your closet, your kitchen, your garden, your inbox and your relationships. Make room to evolve at any time. Keep moving. Feel your heart pound. Sweat and laugh your stresses out every chance you get. Feed your spirit. Hear it whisper. Feel divinity in your own body. Don't …

Now or never

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin. - Mother Teresa


If someone's burden was lightened today because of you the day was well spent, eternally invested.
