She’s got SKILLS! 

Such wisdom from such a young man.  Urgency creates an environment in your life where time matters, and challenges give you an opportunity to create something MORE for yourself than what is out of your control.

The Faces of Food Stamps

These poignant, touching photos show us the lives of food stamp recipients in the wake of program cuts —- take a GOOD HARD look at the TAKERS…. i would hope anyone who takes a hard stand about ‘government assistance” can see the human element behind this and STOP vilifying the poor. They are NOT the problem.

Aaron Sorkin on Philip Seymour Hoffman's Death: 10 Other People Who Were About to Die Won't - TheWrap

Many posts I saw this week on PSH’s death were judgmental.  Those who were not “sorry” for him.  I’m not sorry for him either, but I have I have compassion for an addict.  Who amongst us has not turned to SOMETHING for comfort in our pain.  How many would die if “chocolate” could be overdosed on.  How many give it up and come running back as he came back to the deadly needle.  It’s easier to judge something so dangerous.  But the need to soothe the pain, to quiet the inner voices, is the same.  We just choose different opiates.  Shopping, Gambling, Sex, Alcohol, Food, Nicotine, Caffeine take your pick.  We all have a drug of choice that takes the edge off.  Or maybe you’re one of those that has it all figured out - lucky you.  Don’t feel sorry for him, but understand that addiction isn’t something you just quit doing and never do again.  Some just hop from one to a new one.  Some make it, some don’t.  Survival of the fittest.  He knew he was weak, but that his visibility could save the lives of others.   So I have compassion for a fellow human being, and realize that there for the grace of god, go I.
