Dedicated to the loving memory of my cousin Michael Filpo

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am the thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awake in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand by my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.

Girls are like
apples on trees. The best
ones are at the top of the tree.
The boys don't want to reach for
the good ones because they are afraid
of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they
just get the rotten apples from the ground
that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples
at the top think something is wrong with
them, when in reality, they're amazing.
They just have to wait for the right
boy to come along, the one
who's brave enough
to climb
all the way
to the top
of the tree.

For years humanity has struggled with the concept of God, and with the questions of is there life after death, and why does god allow suffering.

On this videos created by Jonathan Pararajasingham, professors from Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard, MIT, Columbia, NYU, as well as tens of Nobel other words the top brains in the world, speak about the notion of God and how it can be reconciled with the Universe and scientific knowledge.

“Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more.

You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you.

Imagine being born without arms. No arms to wrap around someone, no hands to experience touch, or to hold another hand with. Or what about being born without legs? Having no ability to dance, walk, run, or even stand on two feet. Now put both of those scenarios together: no arms and no legs. What would you do? How would that effect your everyday life?

I strongly believe that people have to take responsibility for their actions, specially when it comes to our finances, and part of that responsibility is to educate yourself before going into debt. Most Americans do not have the slightest clue about the legality and structure of financial debt and the banks know it and use this "mass ignorance" to make healthy profits from the American consumer.
