Daylight, leave the shadows falling behind.

Just to clarify - 🎁 from @babsbrayton

peace to you πŸ™πŸΎ

Hi George. Glad to meet you. We've got you! (Link In Bio)
-
-
Isabella (@isabellainnis) told me about you a little while back and now I have been introduced to you in the video (link in bio).
-
-
I hadn't met you but she was so inspired by you that she came back and built an army to support you. I was lucky to have been a small part of that army. -
-
I am so happy for your well being. I am thankful for Isabella's heart. I am thankful for my friends Mark (@mistersmims), Isom (@isominnis ) Carlson (@carlsonyoung ) and your other allies for being avid about this for you. Mark and I have climbed mountains together for this. Dr. AllGood (@drgregallgood ) @WorldVision and I have climbed Kili 2 times to bring it to the forefront - i am thankful that he was able to rise to the call here as well. -

Water = Life
-
-
I honestly believe that if everyone had clean water there would be no war. If everyone had clean water there would be no disease. If everyone had clean water and it was conserved and protected we would all be united by it.
-
-
70% of the reason why people go to hospitals worldwide is because of water borne illness. That's in excess of 30Trillion dollars a year in healthcare costs that could be dedicated to cures and the financial well being of mankind. For every one dollar πŸ’΅ spent on water πŸ’¦ - 11 dollar πŸ’΅ rate of return.

it's #WorldWaterWeek

You live for water whether you know it or not. Maybe i can encourage you to fight for it. -
-
Watch the video!

Only the best people will read this and understand. -
-
I don't think i can save the world, but I can save mine. So I have obviously based my efforts on my family.
-
-
I work on fighting the Global Clean Water Crisis because my father almost died from water born disease.
-
-
I fight for women because my mother is a black, foreign female in America (3 strikes) and my sister is epic and I want to @ProtectHer - and all of my other sisters in the world.
-
-
I fight for the Arts because I am an artist and I have benefited from amazing arts education and from a roller coaster, but blessed, relationship with the entertainment industry that accounts for over 700B πŸ’΅ of the US Economy.

TODAY!!!
-
-
Trump proposed ELIMINATING the @NEAArts from the budget completely. -
-
To my peers, this mindset would erode the basic foundation of future generations of artists and their potential contributions to the advancement of society through the development of their crafts. To my friends and fans, this degrades every chance for anyone to be heard creatively.
-
-
We as influential voices of art and pop culture architects must fight this AND dedicate concerted effort to, NOT ONLY, maintain the current funding, but annually support @AmericansForTheArts and policies that support the NEA and the arts overall.
-
-
Isn't it time that we align on the subject that affords us our lives?
-
-
My friend @JamesKrisel once said, "Artists help people understand what it means to be human." -

it's everywhere.

I'm an immigrant.

These humans, my parents, escaped persecution.

I wouldn't be here if Trump was President when I was young. -
@realdonaldtrump - you are are destroying the geopolitical landscape and fueling a modern day civil war with your isolationist, racist, fear mongering guised as leadership and a false return of power to the people of America. -
In fact, you and your team are trying to hijack America.
-
We see you.
-
We will stop you somehow. We will get you out.
-
To our refugee brothers and sisters we apologize for our President. He is a reality tv star that was voted in by accident. Our Republican brothers and sisters knew not what they were doing and who they were voting for. We will do what we can to end this "reign."

I started 2017 with mixed feelings, but a determined spirit to frame those feelings. I went back and re-read this note my Dad gave me years ago and it reminded me of who I am and what I am capable of. I thought I would share as it applies to you too. -
-

I ended 2016 with a sigh of relief because last year was an eye opening experience of loss and frustration coupled with extreme growth and recognition that showed we have the endurance to overcome big hurdles. It was also a reminder that we are always under construction and we have not "arrived" and never will - it IS an infinite journey.
-
-

I am learning not to put pressure on the future, and that the path of least resistance is still the best one. -
-

Take note of your environment, the humans who surround you and strengthen your resolve to rise to all occasions. The greatest moments of your life are still ahead. -
-

Blessings and best of all things to you in 2017.
