True people of peace….

A moving message worth reposting from Brian Townley:

“In 1968, several months after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. had been assassinated, Mister (Fred) Rogers quietly did something at that time that was quite unthinkable – he not only hired a black man to take on a regular role in his children’s television program, “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” – and asked him to play a police officer. He would also regularly invite Officer Clemmons to cool his feet in the same pool – together.

Years later, in 1993, Officer Clemmons would make his last appearance on Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. In a touching moment, Mister Rogers once again invited Officer Clemmons, to join him at a pool in the front yard. Two friends, one white, one black, soaked their feet together and discussed the the importance of friendship and being kind to one another.

As they said their goodbyes, Officer Clemmons emotionally thanked Mister Rogers and said, “I like being a human being right here and now.”

A great reminder that wherever there is a human being, there is an opportunity for kindness.”

Franklin Graham slams ‘false’ news for stoking Covington death threats – Washington Times

Even Franklin Graham, weighing in on the Covington Catholic High School debacle, is calling out the media for false news now.

What is your take on the Covington death threats? I have not extensively watched the longer video coverage. It looks as there may be a case of mistaken identity.

What do you think about the Pipeline conflict?

Six-in-ten Canadians say lack of new pipeline capacity represents a crisis in this countryOnce again, a brilliant analysis by the Angus Reid Institute, this time on the Canadian pipeline conflict. It shows that younger women and Quebec are statistically the most against pipelines, that BC is very divided, that the Prairie provinces are feeling the most hurt, and that most Canadians feel that #Trudeau and the Federal government are not doing enough to solve this issue. Give us your thoughts on Angus Reid’s fascinating data.
