The True Rebel Prayer

It can be a good thing to have a creed of some kind. Some mantra or words to calm you and help you find your centre. Like the Serenity Prayer at AA meetings, I need something like this. There are times when I get off-balance. I start to get overly cynical or jaded, angry and judgemental. Sometimes you feel like you are trying to put good out into the world and all you get back is a big F.U. I must admit that I am not perfect, and despite my philosophy to respond in a loving way, at moments I just want to scream F.U.

Video of the Week: Stress, Courage & Community

This TED talk by Kelly McGonigal kicks all kinds of butt! Scientific research that shows us that stress isn't the problem, it's more about how we think about stress and how we connect with others. Your own body is telling you that you have the tools to face life's challenges!! Awesome stuff!

Paul Walker and True Legacy

Life's most persistent and urgent question is, 'What are you doing for others?' - Martin Luther King. Jr.

Because I Got High

We came back inside after getting high together and sat across from each other at the table. Everything was hilarious; we laughed way more than we should have. We kept meeting eyes and laughing all the more... but there was more to the look; we were sharing something together... nobody else at that moment was sharing what we were sharing.

Tell Your Story

I hear so many sad stories.

Stories of abuse. Stories of heartbreaking loss. Stories of people who have, in one way or another, experienced hurt.

Sometimes I think that is what eventually connects us all; our pain.

However, in the telling, each sad story becomes a story of possibility.

When I share my pain I am declaring, "I will not believe the lie that I am alone."

Justice Not Jail

 It would take a lot for me to believe that someone belongs in prison; even more if that person is a youth. Yet, Canada has had a history of high youth incarceration rates, even higher than in the United States. All the experts know that prison will not rehabilitate and is no place for a young person. That is why we continually rework the way we deal with young offenders in Canada, the most recent being the Youth Criminal Justice Act which desires to keep youth out of prison and in good community programs.
