An Inspiration

Verklempt I am.

Inspired  I am.

Courage. Vulnerability. Truth. Grief. Honor.

Leadership. Patriotism. Integrity.

Honesty. Reality. Respect.

Understanding. Cooperation. Humility. Equality. Democracy. Justice. Service.

There is a greater good. Let’s strive toward that.

We reflect with gratitude for the example given to us by Senator McCain as well as that shared by the speakers above.

Godspeed.

Best Comic-Con moment ever

Yesterday Fearsome and I had the privilege and honor to meet and talk to television groundbreaking inspiration Nichelle Nichols, AKA Lt. Uhura of Star Trek.

At tug

Another tug

Turned into a pull

And another pull

Then another tug

By now we are both laughing hysterically as is her assistant

Another pull and more laughter

A Tug and then

Her other hand begins to rise

A Vulcan Salute with a tug

Then a hug

Followed by a final Vulcan Salute

Live long and prosper. Fearsome Beard with one of his idols Nichelle Nichols.

She adored Fearsome and wouldn’t let go of him. I adored her. A beautiful, beautiful woman.

As seen in my hand in the photos:

A priceless moment.

Hero

Carmen Yulín Cruz, Mayor of San Juan Puerto Rico (United States of America for those who skipped class during geography and American History.)

The Oxford English Dictionary defines Hero as:

noun:  A person who is admired for their courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities.

Carmen Yulín Cruz is a Hero. Carmen Yulín Cruz is a leader. Fearsome applauds her for taking ownership of the title given to her by a certain President.

Rise to the occasion

Due to unfortunate circumstances the need for a Hero is now upon us.

Is it not time to realize that the Hero we need is us? All we must do is stand up, speak out and help our fellow man. Do right. Stand up. Act.

Support justice and support journalism.

True correct journalism is needed now more than ever. Free news is not news.

Subscribe to good journalism. Why not good upstanding news papers online or in print? Just this week we subscribed to The Washington Post. Give it, or another, a try. Let’s us put our money where our mouth is.

Let us speak out, speak justly, speak truth and speak with love. Love for our fellow man.

There is no black, no white, no brown, no yellow, no gay, no straight, no Jew, no Christian, no atheist, no Muslim, no gender, no anything other than HUMAN.

Hero. Be one.
