Racism - Hate - Empathy

 Look at this! Adorable!

Why can't we all get along? Why is there racism and hate in this world?
Little children are getting along perfectly regardless of gender, race or religion.

Why can't we keep it that way?
 

Empathy has to be taught. 

We have NO choice of what color we're born or who our parents are or whether we're rich or poor or what religion we want to belong to.

What we do have is some choice over what we make of our lives once we're here.

One thing we all have in common: We are humans.

Enjoy your day!

St. Joseph's Indian School - Reservation Life

Reservation life presents harsh realities

Life on an Indian reservation is hard.
Pervasive, astounding poverty means that some innocent Native American children have to fight for survival. From one day to the next, they don’t know where they will sleep, if they will eat or who will take care of them… if anyone at all.
St. Joseph’s is fully accredited and meets all the academic standards set forth by the state of South Dakota.

Since 1927, St. Joseph’s Indian School has provided a home-away-from-home for Lakota (Sioux) children to escape these terrible conditions. Through the generosity of many caring friends, like you, we are able to provide:
  • A safe home.
  • Three hot, nutritious meals every day.
  • A well-rounded education.
  • Professional counseling.
  • A spiritual and cultural foundation for students to build their future upon!
Beyond academics, St. Joseph’s students learn about their traditional Lakota (Sioux) culture by participating in our
annual powwow and other activities.

Can you help by giving a gift of HOPE to Native American children who need you?

I have met the Chaplain and two Native American boys who plan to go to College to become Doctors. They told me that "Knowledge is Power" and that only through knowledge they will be able to become part of the change - change of Reservation Life.

Have a great day!

Children and Divorce

The greatest things you can give your children are your ears and your voice.- Dr. Phil

Please communicate and listen to your children. Please do not say to your children " I am busy, not now, later, etc." when they have a question or want to tell you something. Remember, they will not come back to ask you. They will feel being pushed away. But you can say "just a minute" if you have to finish something what cannot wait.

Now I have to talk about something which concerns me very much. I have seen this behavior over and over again.

This is for all divorced parents:
Do not put your children in the middle of your fight or use them as a punching bag.

After a divorce children still have a father and mother they love.
They do not have anything to do with your problems.

Be very flexible with visitations - you should do everything for your child to grow up with a good relationship to both parents
Be happy if your child has a good relationship with the father or mother. Keep your venom to yourself

Children will remember what you said about their father or mother! If you only said bad things about their father or mother, then they may resent you later in life!

School vacations
Agree with your ex on a minimum number of days but if the child would like to spend more time with Dad or Mom and Dad or Mom is okay with it, then agree to it. Remember that your child will notice this and will be thankful for not being put in an awful position.

A child loves both parents!

When the divorce is final then it is over and move on. Have good communications with your ex in regards to your child. That's all what matters! His or her personal life is none of your concern. Do not be controlling because it will back fire one day! Hateful feelings have to be put away because they will hold you back to move forward and will effect your new relationship..

When you see your ex, do not see him or her as your ex but see him or her as the father or mother of your child! Believe me it works very well.

It’s important to be warm-hearted rather than selfish.



A source of trouble is our unruly minds. 
We can counter that by developing a warm heart. 
We need to effect an inner transformation, to understand that love and affection are a real source of joy. 
As human beings we are social animals, dependent on each other. 
It’s important to be warm-hearted rather than selfish. 
We’ll be less sick, live longer and have more friends here and now. - Dalai Lama
