"I pulled up to the hardware store and watched this take place right in front of me. This guy sees two kids walking in the pouring rain while one is pushing his broken bicycle and he stops everything he is doing and spends 5 minutes getting drenched with rain while he fixes this little boy’s bike. These kids rode off so happy and the man left with a smile on his face from ear to ear. This is the America that I know. High five to you good sir!"

Earlier today, officers responded to the Bank of America in Montebello regarding a patron who was causing a disturbance. Upon officer’s arrival, they discovered that a 92 year old man was trying to withdraw money from his account, however his California identification card was expired. Per the banks policy, because his identification card was expired, they were unable to fulfill his request. The gentleman was upset and the police were called.
Once officers arrived, Officer Robert Josett decided to take the man to the DMV in town to help him renew his identification card. With the assistance of the DMV, his identification card was renewed and he was taken back to the bank at which time he was able to withdraw money from his account. He thanked Officer Josett and went on his way.

This 92-year-old, petite, well-poised and proud lady, who is fully dressed each morning by eight o’clock, with her hair fashionably coiffed and makeup perfectly applied, even though she is legally blind, moved to a nursing home yesterday. Her husband of 70 years recently passed away, making the move necessary.
After many hours of waiting patiently in the lobby of the nursing home, she smiled sweetly when told her room was ready. As she maneuvered her walker to the elevator, I provided a visual description of her tiny room, including the eyelet sheets that had been hung on her window. “I love it,” she stated with the enthusiasm of an eight-year-old having just been presented with a new puppy.
“Mrs. Jones, you haven’t seen the room …. just wait.”
“That doesn’t have anything to do with it,” she replied. “Happiness is something you decide on ahead of time. Whether I like my room or not doesn’t depend on how the furniture is arranged, it’s how I arrange my mind. I already decided to love it. It’s a decision I make every morning when I wake up. I have a choice;
I can spend the day in bed recounting the difficulty I have with the parts of my body that no longer work, or get out of bed and be thankful for the ones that do. Each day is a gift, and as long as my eyes open I’ll focus on the new day and all the happy memories I’ve stored away, just for this time in my life.”
She went on to explain, “Old age is like a bank account, you withdraw from what you’ve put in. So, my advice to you would be to deposit a lot of happiness in the bank account of memories Thank you for your part in filling my Memory bank. I am still depositing.”
And with a smile, she said: “Remember the five simple rules to be happy:
1. Free your heart from hatred.
2. Free your mind from worries.
3. Live simply.
4. Give more.
5. Expect less, & enjoy every moment.

"So at my daughter's birthday dinner a little girl about 3-4 yrs old saw my daughter walk in the restaurant. While we are all just enjoying the moment the little girl runs down to where my daughter was, looks and smiles real big then runs back to her mom and dad. Shortly after, the daughter come back being carried by her dad and her head is buried in his neck. The dad taps my daughter on the shoulder and says, 'My daughter thinks you are a real princess and wants to give you a hug.' ☺👑. My daughter say yes and the little girl gives her the biggest hug. This brought the room to tears and cheers. They take a couple of pics and the little girls waves goodbye with her parents.

That little girl saw just a "princess" not a black one or white one but simply a princess. Kids don't have hate in them; they are taught it."

The facial network is the newest frontier, and as complex as well. Learning how to read the fascial tension patterns is beyond the trains of typical fascia tracks, it is as individual as you, your expression, experiences, trauma and focus. Work with a facial Expert and you will have a better understanding of yourself and your unique circumstances.

The human fascial network is, in fact, our richest sensory organ.

The estimated number of nerve endings in the body-wide fascial system is 250 million, compared with the estimated 200 million nerve endings in the skin.

Andrew Taylor Still, the founder of osteopathy, wrote that, “No doubt nerves exist in the fascia . . .” and suggested all fascial tissues should be treated with the same respect as if dealing with “the branch offices of the brain.”
