There is no such thing as failure, only learning.

I am learning a lot.

Hate gets us nowhere. Thinking that everyone of a certain race or religion are bad people is ignorant. Please take a moment to look at these photos and share. 
 
 Today was pro-USA demonstration in Benghazi condemning the attacks on the embassy.

Everyone needs to see this, please share this. I have a feeling it will be swept under the rug by the major news outlets.

We cannot lump all the people of the middle east in with terrorists and extremists. I have known several Muslims in my life, and I know many Christians who are infinitely more radical and prone to violence than they are.
There are over a billion Muslims. You cannot say one view point is shared by that many people, it simply isn't true.

This morning, I woke at 4:30am and didn't have anything pressing I needed to get done, so I did what I used to do - went poking around the internet to find something interesting to read. I visited blogs I hadn't been to for awhile, news sites, popurls.com (which used to never let me down) and more.

Is it just me or has internet content become boring in the past year? Are we running out of things to say? 

If you have recommendations on which corners of the internet I should explore, I'd love to hear it...

This movie - The Other Dream Team - just premiered in LA and NYC this weekend to terrific reviews. I was fortunate enough to see it on Saturday night. It will make you laugh, it'll make you cry. It's such a great story of life under Communist occupation and what freedom meant to this small but mighty country of 3 million people...and there's great basketball and Grateful Dead in the mix too. Please go see it. We need more movies like this.

Hate spawns hate. Social media has made abusing freedom of speech easier than ever before...and the ramifications greater than ever before.

oh +Andrea Memenas you are giving that punk far too much credit calling him a "film maker" ... I get what you are saying but he does not deserve that title... I can think of a few that titles he does deserve...

This is the first iPhone that I haven't wanted to run out and buy right away. I feel so mature.
