Comments10/11/2016 #1 Brian McKenzieAh Diversity is great - too bad I am white, male, middle-aged, straight, able-bodied, non felon with no celebratory protected class quota markers in my favor. P.S. - still waiting for my 'White Privelege' bus to arrive. In the mean time, I guess I will have to continue to improve my skills, education and performance.

- 15/06/2016So here's the thing... After living with a big story partly in the shadows, I've decided to write my biography. Not only did I do this for myself, but hoping to be a support for others in the world who are feeling lost, forgetting of the importance of self-love and acceptance. But also with a clear message that all people are equal, no matter their gender, sizes, color, religion. One day I hope to see that change in the world that everyone will be accepted for the unique soul they are... I want to give a Big THANK YOU, to the Boomcast-team for going on this journey with me and especially at the wonderful @Milly Toovey for the support and inspiration she offered me to push through!

- 15/06/2016There is no denying the power of honorable deeds and photos of cute dogs in restoring our faith in humanity.
Owen Lima and his service dog, Blue, are the newest recruits at a Lowe’s home improvement store in Canada.
Lima suffers from a brain injury that requires him to have a service dog.
Because of the injury, Lima can have a hard time understanding people when they speak too quickly.
His canine sidekick helps calm him down and prevent anxiety attacks.
But, it came with a problem: He had difficulty finding a job.
“It’s so hard to find a job where people can accept me for the way I am and the fact that I have a service dog with me,” Lima told the Lowe’s staff.
This didn’t seem to be an issue for store manager Paolo Gallo.
Gallo found a position that would fit the duo perfectly: greeting customers at the store-front as the new customer service associate.
The company posted a photo of Blue in his custom-made Lowe’s employee vest.

Comments09/06/2016 #5 Cyndi wilkinsThe key component here is education...Perhaps it is lost on the "elder generation" as they have been brought up under a different set of social standards...But we really need to focus the attention on our youth as they are tomorrows leaders...Let us teach them to think and not to judge.08/06/2016 #2 Cathy KwantenClear and strong message ... Why do people have to label and discriminate??? I really fail to understand.
A good set of talents/skills and a wonderful personality can't be judged based by outer appearances.
Tall/short, size 0 or plus size, skin color, gender ... shouldn't matter!
