"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome." ~Anne Bradstreet

As we continue through the hurricane season here on the east coast of the United States, we have been given a small taste of adversity. I work in a hotel, filled to capacity for several days in a row, following Irene, by people who were without clean water and/or electricity, those with damaged homes, or by those service people coming into the area to help clean up the mess, and restore us to our 'normal way of life'. My involvement here on Crowdrise, however, makes me aware that all of this past week is little more than a reminder of what a large part of Earth's inhabitants go through on a daily basis. Victims such as those of the earthquakes in Haiti and Japan, the tsunami, mass flooding, and the tornadoes that ripped though the Continental US's mid-west will require months, if not years, of recover. And the vast majority have no hotel where they can spend that recovery period.

"A boy doesn't have to go to war to be a hero; he can say he doesn't like pie when he sees there isn't enough to go around." ~Ed Howe

Don't underestimate even the most modest of involvement here on this site...A September vote for you and your heroic efforts...

“Freedom in general may be defined as the absence of obstacles to the realization of desires” ~Bertrand Russell

July is the month for celebrating freedom in many countries, including Burundi & Rwanda (July 1st), Abkhazia, a.k.a. Georgia, & the United States (July 4th), Algeria, Cape Verde & Venezuela (July 5th), Malawi (July 6th), Solomon Islands (July 7th), Argentina (July 9th), the Bahamas (July 10th), São Tomé and Príncipe (July 12th), Slovakia (July 17th), Laos (July 19th), Belgium (July 21st), Liberia & Maldives (July 26th), Peru (July 28th), Vanuatu (July 30th)...

During this time where some of us celebrate our freedom, it would do us well in spirit to remember to act for those who can not act for themselves; those hindered by a lack of freedom and independence, due to medical illness, political or economic strife, or the bonds of slavery, abuse or torture. We have the freedom to make a difference in the lives of others....A July vote for you for being here to make that difference...
