Thought 2009/9: Coach Carter-Our Deepest Fear

Reminded of this clip from Coach Carter
Thanks to: Emmsy

Used this QUOTE when I became a Soldier (Full Member) of The Salvation Army..

"Our deepest fear is not that we are in adequate.
It is that we are powerful beyond measure."

So having been reminded - thought I'd share it!

EDIT: I did blog on this quote before... Right Here!

OR for you on Twitter-ville out there... (LtoR) @stewartcutler, @aldakila & @takebrokenme {photo by @headphonaught}

it was good to eventually meet the 3D "analogue" versions rather than 2D "digital" versions!

(as a side note: could the fact the photo was taken with an iPhone be the reason I look exactly like my Apple-loving brother?)

"impromptu tweet-up" apparently... @ Starbucks in Borders, Glasgow

End of The Line - What you going to do?

This Widget will help you decide..

Watch the Trailer..
Use the Widget..
Support the Film..

Not too hard really?


The Campaign...
"The End of the Line" is not against fishing. It is not against eating fish. But it is for a responsible attitude towards the oceans.

The film has three messages for consumers, citizens and companies:

Ask before you buy:

only eat sustainable seafood.

Tell politicians:

respect the science, cut the fishing fleet

Join the campaign:

for marine protected areas and responsible fishing

We hope that when people buy fish in a shop or in restaurant, they will ask where it comes from; whether it is from a sustainable source, whether it is an endangered or over-exploited species.

Buy sustainable fish & ask questions!

Thought 2009/8: Where has childhood gone

This news story that @jdblundell twitter'd, got me a little bothered, so I shared my indirect thoughts on Friendfeed. Not sure why it did perturb me entirely, but it did. Probably influenced by this earlier 'rant'.
Decided to share it with my blog friends too..


What follows is exactly what I said there, (unedited & straight from my heart then brain -allegedly) :

"Where has childhood gone?
Sexualizing of society in advertising & beyond; "hands-off parenting"? more like "hands-off" society - no-one wants to take responsibility - its always someone else's job to sort it.. the blame game is just going to lead to a downward spiral!

.. "it wasn't me! or who can I sue? or no-one stopped me!" or anything similar shouldn't stand up to scrutiny.
But who is watching out for others? Who is going to stand up & be, firstly an example of action, & secondly a positive voice? YOU? or what about.. YOU hiding behind 'trendy excuse of the day?'
In the end, if you don't stand up with positive action.. then just sit down & keep your words of condemnation to yourself!! {Actions or being an Example shouts so much louder than all the words in the world!}

- Just my opinion, but wrong as what the 13yr girl was doing is... where was the positive action that would have lead to a possibly different life experience? For her & thousands-upon-thousands like her?"
