I have been thinking, are the WORDS we are using in this pandemic wrong? It is not “social distancing.” It is “RESPONSIBLE DISTANCING” we should focus on to protect our fellow human beings. We are NOT giving up our RIGHTS, we are GUARANTEEING THEM by fulfilling our RESPONSIBILITY to take care of each other in a free society.

Thank You again for saying it like it should be!!

As I watched the events of the last few weeks, I could not help but reflect on the relevance of a program we created in the 1990’s aimed at helping schools build COMMUNITY. To help us, we gathered 16 High School teens who did not know each other, of different ethnicities, from different parts of the country.

This morning we went to help cleanup the mess left by looters in Santa Monica.

Working to repair the senseless damage that was inflicted on this city last night.

God bless America and let us all continue to work together to create, “One nation, under God with liberty and justice for all.”
Be safe!
