Really excited to work with 'Powerful Partnerships' this year for Puget Sound Energy! Together- we can do great things!
While this wasn’t my favorite Fergie performance, and I chuckled at many tweets and Facebook posts about her national anthem rendition— this post was eye opening to how easy it is to judge and treat people as if they don’t have feelings, especially when behind the World Wide Web.
Let’s be better.
Fergie’s rendition of the National Anthem was not good. Not at all. I was in shock and struggled listening. She tried to do a jazz rendition and it failed. Mise...rably.
I laughed. I read some tweets. I shared a tweet. But then I deleted it. Here’s why.
Hear me out.
I just went to her FB page and saw some reviews that were left there. Then I opened them up and started reading them. One after another. My heart started to break. 💔
We adults talk about bullying- it being a problem for our kids. Well, folks. They get it from us.
My heart broke as I read the comments left to Fergie. I started to tear up and I began to pray for her.
You see, it’s easy to forget the human element when everything is online and on TV. It’s easy to forget that there is a woman with feelings. With a heart. Someone’s wife. Someone’s daughter. A woman who is probably crawling in a hole right now. Embarrassed. Afraid to look at the headlines. Afraid to open her own FB Page. Afraid to look at Twitter. Because words hurt. Being embarrassed hurts.
I’m not debating it was a total fail. But remember that we all fail and in the fun of comments about it, which i myself have made, let’s remember that there’s a person with a soul that’s breaking with the comments we make.
If we want things to change. The shootings to stop. Our kids to not be so consumed with what others think. Love to fill our world... it starts with us.
I literally can’t with the cuteness. Happy New Year!!!
A story produced from my old station in Nashville. So beautiful. A reminder that love and compassion go such a long way. 💕
Margaret Smith was at VUMC looking forward to a liver transplant, but doctors told her that her health was in poor shape for a transplant. She died today in a C...ookeville nursing home after her battle with liver cancer, but she didn't leave the hospital without the voice of an "angel" singing her on.

A must watch story for any parent--I can't imagine this family's heartache, but there is hope!!! Praying for Zane!!!
NEW HOPE FOR TODDLER OF FORMER SEAHAWKS PLAYER WHO NEARLY DROWNED.
As the father of a special needs child, I'm honored to bring you a story about former Seahawk...s lineman Sean Locklear, who helped lead the Hawks to Super Bowl XL.
His 4-year-old son Zane is now physically and intellectually disabled after nearly drowning more than two years ago.
Sean and his wife Tiffany now have new hope, thanks to an experimental treatment, that scientists say, reversed the brain damage in another toddler who nearly drowned.
I'm sure you'll be moved by the dedication and love in the Locklear family. I know it touched me.
Meet my colleague, Bob, who I had the honor of following around to highlight the important work that he does for Puget Sound Energy!
Who doesn't love hanging out with animals all day? A look at another fun day at work.
