Let’s talk some chit chat today.
I am sad that my favorite show is probably cancelled for next year SMASH.
The music is fantastic.
“The series revolves around a fictional New York theater community and specifically the creation of a new Broadway musical. It features a large ensemble cast, currently led by Debra Messing, Jack Davenport, Katharine McPhee, Christian Borle, Megan Hilty, Jeremy Jordan, and Anjelica Huston.”
Geesh, everytime I get involved in one show it get’s cancelled. This is exactly why I don’t watch TV.
I love it because I have actually seen some of the actors and actressess on Broadway in NYC.
2. I am super excited we just found our “Volunteer Expedition for Spring 2014” for Color My World!
We are expanding our volunteer expeditions and offering 2-3 destinations next year for those who want to serve in a third world country!
I am not telling where our newest spot is yet- but this trip will be over intercession for Bedford High School and I will offer a second week for college students (last part of April)!
I will announce mid July when we open the trip up to give people plenty of time to fundraise!
We will still do two summer expeditions for 2014 for families and students.
3. Finally…. two people in Time Magazine who really are inspirational!
Congratulations to Malala Yousafzai for making the cover of the 2013 TIME 100 issue. What a powerful young leader! I am impressed!
Thanks to TIME for also including Somaly Mam, a Cambodian author and human rights advocate, focusing primarily on sex trafficking, with a pro bono ad on page 150 (photo by Douglas Kirkland).
“Six months ago, Malala Yousafzai was lying in a hospital bed, recovering from a Taliban attack in which she was shot point-blank in the head and neck.
The shooting was meant to silence, once and for all, the outspoken Pakistani teenager who had dared to defy the Taliban’s ban against girls in school.
But it backfired: Instead of silencing the 15-year-old, the attack only made her voice more powerful.
Malala’s story has raised global awareness of girls’ education, a cause she has championed for years. And now that she’s out of the hospital and back in school, she is determined to keep fighting for equality. She will be speaking at the United Nations this summer, and her memoir is set to be published later this year.”-CNN
4. Finally, let’s end on this note that I love from Mother Theresa!
