All week, NBC has been running promos about Al Roker's 60th birthday, to be celebrated on air on August 22. Now, I like Al Roker. And I like birthday celebrations. And I even see the tie-in to Hoda Kotb's 50th birthday celebration. But 60? Really? All week long, NBC ran...
Because we look healthy on the outside, we must be healthy on the inside? Well, I know for a fact that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, and you damn well shouldn't judge a cancer by it's body.
150 years ago to the day, the first Geneva Convention for the Amelioration of the Condition of the Wounded and Sick in Armed Forces in the Field was adopted, declaring that even in times of war, a certain degree of humanity must be preserved. We are now calling for stricter compliance with this principle.

It's been a week and a half since I started my gratitude journey -- but what I've realized is that this project is just that: A journey. This isn't something that's going to end once the challenge is over or the hashtag fades into oblivion. Gratitude isn't just an assignment, but a habit.

As consumers, we need to trade the habit of clicking for short cuts for the habit of practicing behaviors that will truly serve our health. As a health and wellness industry, we need to trade our habit of telling people why they should do something or overwhelming them with a dozen ways to do it, and instead, invite them, inspire them, and propel them to try one way, to practice.
Robin Williams Baby Boomers,
We expect brilliant people such as Robin Williams to contribute to society well past their 60th birthdays.

It never occurred to me that I would be unemployed in mid-life. Well, yes, it had occurred to me when my tits were still perky and my mind malleable, so I went to grad school, got a Ph.D. and embarked on what was once a promising and stellar career.

It's hard enough carving out a space for ourselves in a world that constantly marginalizes us and our very existence. And having strange men assume that we want to hear what they think of us when there are very few things we want less in the world just adds to the burden.
We love to pick sides and weigh the consequences of other's actions and find a safe place to land ideologically. We love our psychology and philosophy and our reason. But there is no getting away from what lurks way down there.
While we do not know all the facts on the ground in Ferguson, we know that militarization on a national level can often do more harm than good. It has eroded trust between law enforcement and ordinary citizens, and it certainly hasn't eradicated the drug scourge from our communities.

Here's the deal: We are in for the fight of our lives with this monster that is ALS, and the very last thing I want is for people to donate quietly, anonymously and then slink away. Raise the roof! Raise a ruckus! Call all sorts of attention to yourself!
