So troubling to hear the one person who might have been able to stop the gunman from the beginning didn't even go in the building to try. #soheartbreaking
BIG shout out to the The Colony Firefighters - Truck 13!!!
During our storms this week, power went out at the home of April and Jeff Parker. Their baby girl Dallas needs a ventilator to survive. Batteries on the ventilator were low and their generator wasn't working right. Her mom April wrote, "This is beyond scary and ridiculously stressful." Not sure where to turn they brought their little girl, who recently got out of the hospital for the first time, to their local fir...e station.
The Fire Department wrote, "They came, plugged in and hung out for a couple of hours until their power was restored. While they were there, they shared Dallas’ story and taught us a lot about her vent and how it works. It was very humbling to hear her story and awe inspiring to see how well Jeff and April handle managing her care! We definitely learned a lot!!”
Show your love and "like" this story. Share with others... There is a lot of good happening all around us! #itsagoodday

This is from November. But loved too much not to share.
Inner-city Detroit Montessori school, shot for The Detroit News. I had been with the children for two days and shot hundreds of photos. Some were very good but ...i knew I hadn't gotten a great shot. It was during an afternoon session..... We were all seated on the floor in a circle listening to a story. I bowed my head and said a little prayer asking God to let me see something great. When i raised my head the little girl leaned over to lay her head on the little boy's lap. He very nonchalantly lifted his arm to receive her.The photograph was published full size the next day on the back page of the newspaper. I call it
"Age of Innocence".
Women work more than men.... and aren’t paid for it according to a new report. The study says women do 2 1/2 times the amount of unpaid care and house work than men do. This includes childcare, cooking, cleaning and transporting kids. Researchers say this is hurting many women’s careers. Those who conducted the study are hoping these results will cause companies and countries to create flexible policies that change cultural norms. Think this study is true? Who does more “unpaid work” in your home? Do changes need to be made?
