You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"

Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.

Lois “is thankful for”...a meme
Well back in October I jumped on the
Just a note so some of the original material makes more sense...Lois' tend to be over 70 and avid (possibly even rabid) church goers, I - of course - am neither.
- Lois is thankful for the grace God has given her throughout her life. Thank you to all deities...I'll take grace where ever I can find it. Likewise for peace...since the world could use more than a little bit of that too.
- Lois is thankful for dogs because they teach us. Ok I'll bite...what do they teach us? I mean come on all our dog does it sleep and fart and she can do both simultaneously...which might be an interesting trick to learn though it would probably make me a single woman again fairly quickly.
- Lois is thankful for any contribution you wish to make. Any other year I would be making a joke about being a poor grad student but this year I can't because lots of folks are far worse off than I am. So make holiday contributions to the Red Cross or Oxfam...they need the money.
- Lois is is thankful for the roof over her head. Yah baby!
- Lois is thankful for many things including "the entire artform that is comics, which at its best is the perfect intersection of pictures and story, art and commerce, passive and interactive entertainment." Ahhh whatever you say. *nods agreeably*
- Lois is thankful for the comfort and sympathy she receives from a tall handsome stranger in black. Hey if you see one of these he's mine. *points to the bullet point* See see it's there in black and white...MINE! LoL Mine, mine mine.....
- Lois is thankful for family, health, and friends. In spades.
- Lois is thankful for a great teacher. Lois is thankful for many great teachers and even for the awful teachers I have had over the years. I've learned different things from the bad ones, than the good ones, mostly how I don't want to be as a teacher. The great ones give me goals to aspire to met.
- Lois is thankful for the voters of Southampton East. Simply don't know what to say to this one. Go voters?
- Lois is thankful for the church. Depends on the day, month, year, and especially which church.
- Lois s thankful for the parents who raised her and for the education she received. *nods*
- Lois is thankful for any and all offers to assist other members. Members of the human race...cause we are all swimming to the other side.
- Lois is thankful for the philanthropy and generosity of the community in helping to create this lasting artistic, educational, cultural and economic impact on our region. Clancy has a good post today about teaching technical communication ...this falls right in with it. Sounds like this line was said by a Miss American candidate. *does her beauty pagent wave while Vaselining her teeth* So they slip smoothly and evenly across the gums.
- Lois is thankful for pastors. So totally depends on the pastor. LOL
- Lois is thankful for the support you have provided. MONEY PLEASE..More...more...moremoremoremoremore MONEY!
- Lois is thankful for the privilege of serving the church. *yawn*
- Lois is thankful for the help of the many library volunteers. Library volunteers are cool.
- Lois is thankful for the break. Oh yes...always happy for breaks.
- Lois is thankful for the entertainment. Life is entertainment...and I do enjoy the show.
- Lois is thankful for the backyard pool. Just what I would want in late November when it is snowing. LOL Well unless I was in Pagosa Springs and my "backyard pool" was a hot spring. Nummmmmy!
