Childhood Poverty In America

Ooh Child / The Five Stairsteps


Breaking the Cycle

Children aren’t born

with prejudice and hate,

but when raised with it

they tend to emulate.

Then prejudice once more

gets passed on down.

Until tolerance and education

start turning it around.

How much is a life worth…

We all know about the recent ‘Yarnell Hill Fire’ in Arizona that tragically took the lives of 19 amazing firefighters. But did you know that 13 of the 19 firefighter’s families are getting ‘cheated’ out of the more than well deserved benefits that the other 6 are getting.  I’m sorry but they all were out there fighting to save lives for the state of Arizona, no matter who or where they came from.  Please join me in the push to get the same lifetime monthly survivor benefits, life insurance and health benefits that the other 6 got.  The benefits the men’s families receive should not depend on whether they were permanent employees or seasonal they all died in the line of duty! Arizona House Speaker Andy Tobin is drafting bills to close that loophole, ensuring the families of all 19 firefighters will receive full-time employee benefits.   Thank you so much,  Hansi Riley

We’re in this Together!

If we left politics, religion In this together

and all other differences

at the door,

it would then boil down to this…

All we really have on this planet

is each other,

so we really should play nice.    Hansi Riley

Bob Marley Quote

‘You may not be her first, her last, or her only.  She loved before, she may love again, but if she loves you now, what else matters?  She’s not perfect…you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together.  But if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice and admit to being human and making mistakes…hold onto her and give her the most you can.  She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break…her heart.  So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give.  Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there.’  Bob Marley
