Glimmer of Hope in Dark Times

23 Dec

shoepaintingI’ve been having a hard time staying positive and seeing the light in this world of ours. Everywhere you look there is violence, despair and hate. But lately – no doubt due to the holiday season – I’ve learned of a few people who refuse to give up or give in.

Maurice Kie, Life Pieces to Masterpieces in DC: A young man and after-school program uses art to help young children cope with living in neighborhoods stricken with gun violence.


Tiffany Anderson, Jennings School District in Jennings, Mo.: A school superintendent who actually cares about the students and implements innovation RESULTS to real problems.

Amy Peake, entrepreneur in England: Empowering women in other countries with employment by making a necessity – sanitary pads.

Journalists out there: we need these stories YEAR-ROUND! Apologies that we make Amy Peakeyou think we only want “reality”,
depravity, terror and salaciousness.

To anyone reading this post, you’re welcome. đŸ™‚
