Oh, Do I hear him! It is indeed all to tempting to fight Hate with Hate, but as it was said once on 'Toughed By An Angel'--"'You can not out Hate the Devil.' so do not try. The way to fight Hate Is with LOVE. After all LOVE Is More Powerful." After all, when I see and hear the actions of Westboro Baptist Church and their gospel of hate and intolerence. I too am tempted to not only curse them out and worst, curse out Jesus for letting them get away with so much, but then, I calm down and repent. After all, as sure, as they do not have the right to judge, neither do I. I wish I could write of how I rose above this, but to tell the truth, I am still very much dealing with this temptation to curse out those Haters and the God whom they hide behind.

Why, because of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are where and how our nation were not only founded by, but are currently Governed by.

Yes!! After all, Green Energy Jobs are the Jobs of the Future and the Jobs that will Save the Future.
Speaking of Jobs of the Future that is why I am passing on this e-mail from ENCORE.ORG---Second Acts For A Greater Good;
In the past few days, people in encore careers have been making big news. Second acts for the greater good are gaining momentum and continuing to garner serious national media attention. There’s the patient advocate in The New York Times, the children’s chorus founder in a new Wall Street Journal series, the food bank worker in a Reuters column. Coming up are features on the PBS NewsHour and BBC World Service.Your voice is important: Your reviews and social media sharing will influence coverage. Please tell your own stories in the comments sections, post links to the articles alongside photos of yourself in your encore career, opine and tweet. In just a couple of minutes, you can play a part in building a movement to harness the vast talent of experienced workers who – in encore careers – can solve the biggest challenges of our time.Check out the headlines:Two New York Times pieces recognized socially minded work in the second half of life – one about the kinds of jobs emerging as America ages, and the other about how longer lives present the chance to do good. (The Times notes the $100,000 Purpose Prize, which is accepting nominations through April 4.)The Wall Street Journal has assembled “The Experts” – a group of notable people from various backgrounds – to comment regularly on retirement-related stories generating buzz. The paper asked Encore.org founder and CEO Marc Freedman to contribute. Take a look at these short pieces from Marc about finding purpose, living a legacy (instead of just leaving one) and working in an encore career with your spouse.USA Today, Reuters and the Financial Times of London highlighted Encore Fellowships – opportunities for corporate professionals to transition to nonprofit work – sponsored by such companies as Intel and Goldman Sachs. And, coming soon: segments on BBC’s The Why Factor (a radio program available online) and PBS’ NewsHour about changing attitudes toward retirement and becoming an entrepreneur later in life.Join the conversation and build the movement by posting, tweeting and forwarding the story links or this email.
