-- Conscious Living Events --
Today will close the week long celebrations for the 26th National Public Service Week in Canada. According to www.tbs-sct.gc.ca: National Public Service week was created back in 1992 and "has demonstrated its worth in terms of fostering morale, building networks and enhancing the public's awareness".
Father's Day is coming up on this Sunday! And on that same day we celebrate World Refugee Day. Watch for events and announcements in your area, and articles in your local publications.
-- A Philosophy on Life --
I received the following via email from my brother, Larry, and thought you all might get a kick out of it:
This is the philosophy of Charles Schulz, the creator of the 'Peanuts' comic strip:
* You don't have to actually answer the questions - Just ponder them.
1. Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
2. Name the last five Heisman trophy winners.
3. Name the last five winners of the Miss America pageant.
4. Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
5. Name the last half dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
6. Name the last decade's worth of World Series winners.
How did you do?
The point is, none of us remember the headliners of yesterday. These are no second-rate achievers. They are the best in their fields. But the applause dies.. Awards tarnish.. Achievements are forgotten. Accolades and certificates are buried with their owners.
Here's another quiz. See how you do on this one:
1. List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
2. Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
3. Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
4. Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
5. Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
The lesson: The people who make a difference in your life are not the ones with the most credentials, the most money...or the most awards. They simply are the ones who care the most !
*Thank you, Larry, for sending this our way :)
