Quote of the Day

“To be good is noble, but to teach others how to be good is nobler – and less trouble.”

– Doctor Van Dyke speech, 1906

This quote goes so well with an Upworthy video I had just watched. See for yourself how this 3rd grade teacher demonstrates what it is like to be discriminated in metaphors.

Girls’ Education Worldwide

Discovered this on facebook:

In many places in the world girls do not have the opportunity to build their own futures. For every video watched, General Mills and Merck will donate $1 to Join My Village, a nonprofit program that gives girls access to education. Together, we can raise enough money to help send up to 5,000 girls to school!

Please help by clicking on Help Send up to 5,000 Girls to School in Malawi. This is an eye-opening two-minute video clip and your viewing can help thousand of girls getting an education. Education can be their way out of early marriage and early motherhood,  and  their means of providing a source of income to escape total poverty.

Daijoubu 大丈夫

The man and his dog, rescued after three days, replied to the question: 大丈夫ですか? (Are you okay?), with just a simple 大丈夫 (I’m okay).

Not only did he come out with a smile on his face, but he also said: “Let’s rebuild!”

Some angst-stricken Germans panic more than the Japanese themselves.
