Martin Luther King - Nobel Lecture

Martin Luther King - Nobel Lecture

The Nobel Peace Prize Lecture

A snippet of his speech below.

- "This is a dazzling picture of modern man's scientific and technological progress.

Yet, in spite of these spectacular strides in science and technology, and still unlimited ones to come, something basic is missing. There is a sort of poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea like fish, but we have not learned the simple art of living together as brothers." Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.

Even more relevant now. Please read it in it's entirety. Times like these call for reflection. Click this link to read it.

Update- The Missoni for Target collection was the fastest selling designer collection target has EVER sold! I got in a few really good items! It was a mad dash for all of the coveted zig-zag Missoni designs! One of my dear friends even picked up 2 fantastic pieces for me out of state in California! It was an exciting first day of shopping. I say one day , because stock only lasted for one day. In some cities like downtown Mahattan,New York stock only lasted for 15 short minutes! Wow!

Where Is Your Social Conscience? Please Help Others.

We see all the pictures and think "How sad, too bad for them, or I feel so bad for them". It is time to take action people. Let's not sit around and watch. Let's be a part of making the world better, or at least help. Let's be a new generation of "DO'ers"! No more sitting on the sidelines.

Smoker's delight

If you enjoy smoking, but not the smoke, here we go. I discovered these little nifties called Smokestik. A smokeless cigarette with vapor. It supposedly gives the feeling of smoking without the tar, and other harmful additives of "real" cigs. Worth a try :) Find them here

Yes or No? Five Toes

So, the Belize trip is finally upon us! We had to go get some shoes for stepping on stones in the water and such. I picked out some crazy water shoes. My mom found some cute Mary Jane inspired water shoes in a pretty lavender color. I too got some lavender water shoes , but a totally different style. The Vibram FiveFingers Komodo shoe. I thought they looked really comfortable. I know they look strange..kinda cool...but strange. I tried them on and loved em! We shall see how they function in the warm Belizean water.....

The Komodo style is what I chose. Find them here

Lending to the working poor through Kiva

Loans that Change Lives!

My Son and I were given a great gift this Christmas from my mom. She gave us a donation gift certificate for the lending organization Kiva.The gift allowed my son and I to choose people from around the world to lend money to in an effort to further their business aspirations. The interesting thing about this concept is that they will in time pay back the loan. No handouts. Help people help themselves. My son and I chose together how much we would loan(minimum $25 dollars). This gave my son a great feeling of empowerment to be able to help people. Check out the website to see more info. You will get your donation back. After you get your donation back from the organisation you can choose to be repaid or re-lend the money! If you are interested in donating, press the 'lend' button on the kiva website to see who needs money. This is a great thing! Here is the link.Info from Kiva website:

Kiva's mission is to connect people, through lending, for the sake of alleviating poverty.

Pendo Luisi, 27 years old, borrowed $175 to open a cafe in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Kiva empowers individuals to lend to an entrepreneur across the globe. By combining microfinance with the internet, Kiva is creating a global community of people connected through lending.

Kiva was born of the following beliefs:

People are by nature generous, and will help others if given the opportunity to do so in a transparent, accountable way.
The poor are highly motivated and can be very successful when given an opportunity.
By connecting people we can create relationships beyond financial transactions, and build a global community expressing support and encouragement of one another.
Kiva promotes:

Dignity: Kiva encourages partnership relationships as opposed to benefactor relationships. Partnership relationships are characterized by mutual dignity and respect.
Accountability: Loans encourage more accountability than donations where repayment is not expected.
Transparency: The Kiva website is an open platform where communication can flow freely around the world.
As of November 2009, Kiva has facilitated over $100 million in loans.
