    Canadian Stuart McLean passed a way last week, a true Canadian treasure. If you have never listened to his show on CBC, or NPR, you need to.

    In an age of anger, Stuart wrote and speaks with heart, and gentleness, not to mention his stories are incredibly funny.

    I'll be posting some of the available work as I find them to help others out there appreciate this brilliant human being's work.

Which, IMO, is reason for great optimism concerning the future of the platform. Cheers to all!

    All excellent suggestions of keep your focus. Especially to diversify. With out conflict and discussion we all become a regurgitated robotic mush. I especially like the part of own your mistakes.

    "If we create environments that invite cooperation and acceptance, people are more likely to act in these ways."

    beBee is a fantastically successful experiment in Hive Mind.

    It is so rewarding to see newbees show up and catch the vibes of respect & acceptance. Because of how easy it is to see that this is a community built on having a chat with anyone around the world on all the topics that suit your fancy.

    It makes me certain of the success of this platform when I see how they quickly beginning sharing and encouraging and demonstrating their own unique style of beeing.

    What an inspiring adventure to be part of a site that uniquely fits my needs, but actively encourages respecting the space of millions of other people participating in social media to meet their own utterly unique needs.

    Before social media any was popular, my Hives with groups were at the Panera Bread or St. Louis Bread Company as it is called here. It was a great place to drink hot tea or coffee and do all these things. Then the social media was created and we started do this from home with people from all over the world. Quite a change.

    #5 Great points @Todd Jones and I agree, I feel our electoral system is outdated and flawed. Others may disagree but that's how I see it. A lot of re-districting has been done over time as well which has changed the number of electoral votes a district has. I won't be surprised to see him impeached, there are many investigations going on and those of us that have paid attention, we know he's made many contradictory statements and shall I say, lies?

    I've seen people joining many on a bipartisan level, this is a good thing. The beast woke our country up!

    #5 Very well expressed, Todd. As your northern neighbour I, too, hope that out of the chaos will eventually come a healthier electoral and political system in the US. Unfortunately, all perspective seems to have been lost with the media and the intelligentsia, and that includes my own country. On a different but related topic, Canada is now reacting to waves of refugees (many from Somalia) who are entering Canada in Manitoba (via North Dakota and Minnesota) and Quebec (via NY State). These are folks who are either in the refugee process in the US or are illegal immigrants. With the freezing temps, luckily no one has died. But it's causing a lot of concern here since: a) border control is not equipped for this, b) small communities (eg, Emerson, Manitoba) are desperately trying to help these people, and c) Canada is still trying to help settle the 40,000 Syrian refugees who recently arrived and who went through a rigid vetting process. In other words, hand picked. No one knows what is yet to come under the Trump administration.

    @Jim Taggart "Steamrolling people, insulting them and attempting to punish will get you nowhere." While I generally agree, if you're part of a group that views itself as downtrodden, ignored, misunderstood, and disadvantaged the type of bullying undertaken by President Cheeto will have appeal because his steamrolling is targeted on 'the others', not our group. Well considered piece here Jim. Thanks. Will share.

    You nailed it Jim. Although calling it a divide does not do justice to the scope of the chasm that separates folks in our country right now. Also, let's not forget that Trump ascended to office not on a wave of popular vote, but rather on a quirk of our flawed electoral system.

    Here's the thing. I didn't vote for Trump, yet I still cling to hope that his election will eventually bring positive change to our country. Not through anything that remotely resembles leadership, nor through his policy rhetoric or ridiculous tweets or bizarre Cabinet appointments. But hopefully, eventually, through his impeachment, or at least his loss of the next election. Remember, through conflict comes balance. If nothing else, Trump's antagonistic agenda is sowing the seeds for a healthy dose of balance when it ultimately fails.

    @Jim Taggart, this is a great piece, media worthy! Mr. Trump played on the fears of people more than unifying even during his campaign. I have paid attention to Trump and his business affairs per se for years and, I've never had respect for this man. As a businessman, he had many failures and blamed those failures on others. He's never been a man to take responsibility for his own actions or lack thereof. Trump is a one man show and feels he is superior (and smarter) than anyone he surrounds himself with. The notion that he does not want to surround himself with and take the advice of someone who has more knowledge in many area's of Government than he has is a sign of a weak leader, a person who has low self-esteem. I love that you used the letter from Elon as an example of what a good leader does. He's become more divisive since he won the election instead of trying to unite our country. To make claims that our entire media organization is 'false or fake news and the enemy,' is abhorring. No Politician has a love fest with the Media but to threaten them is a very dangerous game this man is playing. He's pandering to his base and seems to have no plans to work on behalf of the entire nation now. That is what is so frustrating and scares many. Once a person becomes the President of the USA, that person represents all of us, not just those who voted for him. Calling Islam, "Radical Islam," is no different than another Country calling Christianity, "Radical Christianity or Christians." I'm not a partisan (have become more of one since the mid 2000's thanks to politics become much more partisan) and my only hope is that those on Capitol hill will set a new tone because they are the people who can affect change. Will they? Time will tell!

    #2 Thanks Chas. I agree with you on the Putin comparison. Indeed, I've read a lot about the Reagan-Gorbachev era and the Russian leader was, and still is, a big contrast to Trump.

    Olga Lawson, you may correct me if I am wrong, but, I do believe he has been compared more to Mr Putin, than Mr Gorbachov. The bottom line is that, we the people, must determine the fate and direction this country is going and not leave so much power in the hands of a single man. Jim Taggart, this is a very thoughtful piece. Thank you.

    Thank you, Jim for the healing insight on the way American people do feel right now. There is a view that Mr Trump is Mr Gorbachov of The USA. The type of leader who gives an official drive or green light to the proceces which were already in the society. I am quite comfortable with such comparison. This is the type of a Person the country deserves at some stages of its development. The US is a strong country, nothing to be afraid of, even its own President. It is another challenge. Enjoy the moment!

    This is very sad @Joyce Bowen An episode liked this happened hardly a week ago. A 7 year old Little girl Hasini was abused and killed out of fear Rather was burnt to her death by her neighbouring Boy 22 year old engineering very good looking student. ( Can be googled) Very depressing to hear. May her soul R.I.P and all little girls who had died cause of some heartless swines.

    When I think of people who behave like this. I just want their brains to explode with some feelings or conscienceness of their actions. #Hopingforabetterworld

    thought i'd get cheap thrills
    Watching fires from afar
    Then tell you i did my best
    Before the bodies char

    thought i would be king
    from the praise of monkeys
    but you did know for sure
    i forgot to say please

    thought i lost myself
    in search of twilight
    i believed it was dark
    but i didn't guess right

    thought fame had gone
    had my luck run out
    you were too thoughtful
    to clear up my doubt

    Thought i'd come out clean
    With no more wounds to lick
    But Theres no heaven or hell for me
    i am stuck in traffic

    (How could i possibly stop the fire?)

    Pretty disconnected and rough for now:( but thanks for the great read.

    Every generation thinks they will be the one to put the fire out. Wishful thinking, but one can hope.

    Just listen to those lyrics. Nothing has changed. Nothing is likely to ever change.

    Perhaps mankind is truly a blight on this planet. Savagery seems to be an innate part of our make up. We are certainly our own worst enemies.

    The Beast lies quite close to the surface. It doesn't take much to awaken it.

    Talk about depressing. . .

    We are the world. Music unties and crosses over boundaries and walls created by those who don't understand humanity. It is our love for ourselves which is revealed by our persistence to share, care and give to others. What do you stand for when no one is looking, is who you are when you look in the mirror.
    A blast from the past, for a present much in need of unity, and awareness. Some thoughts through music!

    “A beautiful mind is a terrible thing to waste”. God has blessed us with an amazing combination of physical abilities and a brain to help us think, plan, work, and enjoy life. So God wants to bless, strengthen, renew, guard and bless our minds, as we focus our thoughts and actions on him.
