What a timely and appropriate prayer

I have recently started a new journey. I have a new job and had to relocate to a new state. It has been so stressful making this decision and I have more than once second-guessed myself, my motives and my plan.

However, I made the leap, as I so often do, and dived right into the opportunity. With that being said, it has been a real experience and I feel very good about the opportunity and the avenues for growth.

I just wanted to share a prayer that was said right before the Monthly Divisional Meeting yesterday. It really hit home and gave me the strength I needed to get my head in the game and move forward.

I hope that it gives you the same thing.

North Dakota cops will be first in nation to use weaponized drones

It should have been recognized that eventually we would have these operating in urban areas. How many people are aware that this is going on in the United States? How long before we see these machines monitoring our moves? What dictates the “proper” use of this technology?

Just wanted to let you know what is coming.

For Uber, Lyft Riders With Disabilities, Discrimination Comes Included

Being a new person with a disability, I have become more attentive to news that impact the disabled. This article about Uber and Lyft is very unfortunate and I hope that they come up with a viable resolution.

For users with guide dogs or wheelchairs, it’s not uncommon for Uber and Lyft drivers to deny them a ride.
