President Obama’s Inauguration

UNITED WE STAND

UNITED WE STAND

Hello world

Today is a big day for the United States of America and for this one day we can be selfish and focus on ourselves as a nation. Hundreds of thousands have made their way to Washington, D.C. to be eye witnesses of this second inauguration of President Barack Hussein Obama, the 44th president of the United States.

Whether you are among the 52 percent who voted for him or you are among the 48 percent who did not- today we come together as Americans as he is indeed the President of these United States. Today’s inauguration is even more significant because it is the birthday of Martin Luther King (MLK). Had Martin Luther King been alive today he would have said, we all Americans , rich or poor; red or yellow, black or white. We are all

  • God’s children and therefore we count. Congratulations to President Barack Obama.

    Valentine’s Day Gift Ideas

    Happy Valentine’s Day 2011

    Hello World,

    Happy Valentine's Day to you. Find someone to show that you love them. Remember, today is not just for husbands and wives, and significant others- Valentine's Day is for everybody.

    Men, if you have daughters give them cards too. Women, give your sons cards too. This is where you start training them so that when they become adults they know how to act.

    If you are at your wits end as to what to give as a gift today, here are some ideas to consider. The top five will be the usual suspects. Here we go, flowers, chocolate, cards, perfume, jewelry, dinner cruise, dinner at a fancy restaurant where you have to really dress up, your city’s tour bus ride- be a tourist and enjoy the ride, catered dinner at home, spend the night at a hotel in your backyard, go dancing, skating, bowling or just stay home and talk.

    These are some ideas. Remember to share the love with co-workers, friends, pets, and family. If we all do that then nobody will be left out. They are not anything far fetched because I find that many times we overlook the simple things we can do with the right spirit, and instead try to do extravagant things with the wrong spirit. The truth is, if everyday you will do the little things that mean something to people – for you everyday will be Valentine’s Day. Enjoy!

    Valentine’s Day Is For Everybody

    What Is Love All About?

    Every year when it comes around to February 14, people seem to remember that they should love somebody, but what is love? Why so much emphasis on Valentine’s Day and nothing the rest of the year? Then if you are a single person, you feel so left out because there is nobody to give you flowers, or chocolate, or to take you out to dinner. Don’t be silly, Valentine’s Day is not just for couples. We should all love one another and that is a daily practice.

    Nowadays, people put different meanings to love. Many people when they say “I love you,” they mean I want you. But love is more than wanting someone. Love is more than giving chocolate, flowers, and a card. Love is simply treating one another like how you would want to be treated were the shoe on the other foot. Love means being willing to lay down your life for your friends. Would you really lay down your life for the person you are going to give chocolate, and flowers, and cards to tomorrow? After the flowers have faded and the chocolate melted, do you still feel the same way you did on February 14? Who do you love sacrificially? Who do you love beyond need? Who do you love beyond lust? Who would you put ahead of yourself? Then also, do you love people who you know are your enemies? Also, do you love yourself?

    This Valentine’s Day is for everybody, not just for lovers. This Valentine’s Day extend yourself beyond your mate and remind those parents, children, friends, and teachers, that you love them. If you are single, take yourself out to dinner if you want to, buy yourself flowers if you like flowers, and get yourself chocolate if you like chocolate. Love is not just for Valentine’s Day- that is why many people will get flowers and chocolate and dinner tomorrow but by Wednesday they will end up with a broken heart because the love that was expressed on Valentine’s Day was not to give and prefer the other person, but to get something. When you say “I love you,” it should mean I care about you, I want the best for you, I will do whatever I can to help you, I am there for you, and I want to understand you rather than judge you. That’s what love is all about.

    This Valentine’s Day try to love those around you by trying to understand them. Learn their ways and means. Learn their moods. Learn what makes them happy, sad, excited, down, and energized. Love is also forgiving people and accepting their forgiveness too. Unforgiving people cannot love anyone- not even themselves. Love is a great antidote for everything. Love is not blind and those who think love is blind are in a lot of trouble. Love one another everyday, that is the spirit of Saint Valentine’s Day.

    Happy Valentine’s Day!
