If I were a young child today, I suspect that I might be somewhere on the Asperger's spectrum. In the 1960s there was no such thing, or at least, I never heard of it. Children were "normal" or diagnosed as "mentally retarded," and placed in special education. Those stuck somewhere in the middle were simply considered goofy or awkward. I fell into the middle crowd, and was miserable. I knew I was different but kept trying to hide it and pretend I was "normal." Loud sounds terrified me, even on television.
Pawnee, Oklahoma, is the headquarters for the Pawnee Indian Tribe. Near the center of town stands a small Indian church regularly attended by about eighteen people. Among the small congregation is an old traditional Indian woman who only speaks her mother tongue. Few remaining Pawnees remember the old language.
To whom it may concern, my name is Dave Halalilo and I am creating a movement to raise the vibrations of the human condition, to equal and empower significance in every human being and to bring this together from a genuine desire for new kind of listening, a greater understanding and more democratic love, joy, hope and glory for all.
Have you looked around at what's going on around the world lately? Constant news of violence, hate crimes, corruption, social and political injustices, environmental issues, cultural, economical, and sometimes religious warfare are the norm.
People intrigue me. Their style, the way they carry themselves, hair color, piercings, etc... but the greatest thing about a person are their eyes.
Back in March, from the 20th-22nd, there was an annual event titled Social Media Marketing World 2019 that was held in San Diego, a conference I’ve desired to attend for years. It was a blessing to be chosen to volunteer and serve with a great team to help ensure attendees that their experience was absolutely worth it, which it sure looked like it proved to be true. From serving the attendees, catching up with friends therefore solidifying friendships, and exploring outside the venue, it has been a productive, edifying, and impactful three days. Given everything that has occurred over the time, it is understandable now how incredibly popular this conference is.
If you, as a non-native, have come across Natives or Indigenous people greeting each other, you have likely noticed that most of us use at least a single word in our native language, and using terms of kinship. You might also be sitting there asking... but why?
What is life, and why do we take it all so seriously, when in the end we just die?
I get that most humans are a mix of something. But I cant imagine most of you were confused as to what/who you were all through life.
