It weighs heavy on my heart each time I hear about the news of the impact these fires have caused for so many people and families. The shelters have been blessed with an outpouring of donations, however are still in need of comfort items. If you are in the Bay Area please feel free to use one of our good friends @rob_inkies business locations as a donation drop off. Soulution Ink is also collecting donations and plan to head out there 10/22 to distribute donations. #californiastrong#northvalleyfires#uniteasone
My mother shared with me her own situations with men when she was in high school and college. One incident she was alone but managed to get out of the situation. The other incident her friend was with her when a boy slipped drugs into her drink and her friends. She wanted to help make sure I was safe because her worst fear and my father's she never wanted to come true.
Thank God it never did.
I was tested numerous times with situations that left me frozen in fear and shocked at how humans treat others.
How fucking awful is that?
Change. Needs. To. Happen.
Right now. All of you. Men you need to step up. Treat us with love, compassion, respect. Women keep breaking that glass ceiling they placed us in. Mold the world into a space you want to live in. It starts with one.
Can Superheroes Guide Us Through These Tough Times? I Think So…
We are in tough times. I’ve sat back and watched a lot of things in my life.
The destruction of innocents for black goldThe Rwandan GenocideColumbine and many other reprehensible actsThe Fall of the World Trade Towers
After each one, I ask:
Who would do this? Why would they do this?How could they do this?
Often, I can’t come up with an answer worthy enough to share.

After watching the #kaliefbrowder documentary on #netflix I think its imperative to reach out to people because you never know what someone is going through mentally. But in today's society everyone has their phone out but ain't checking on no one. It don't take much to say what's up..just two damn words. People can double tap on your post but won't check on you or respond to a text. I swear I feel like I'm not from this era or planet. Ima just keep reaching out randomly to people, because you never know when your "what's up" text will help someone. #helpinghands#mybrotherskeeper#mysisterskeeper#uniteasone#postiveenergy
This afternoon my mom and I took part in a crafting event at @kopperkeglv painting rocks that will be put in the memorial garden here in Vegas. The bar also donated all proceeds from food purchased to the victims. #vegasstrong#uniteasone
You’re my home away from home. This act of cruelty hits straight to the heart. It’s one thing when you see it on the news, but it’s another thing when you’re actually there at the scene. It’s almost like you feel all the pain and heartache. It’s feels so surreal. Being there makes you realize that whatever you are going through at the moment doesn’t matter, but to be so fortunate to be alive and breathing. People are fighting for their lives, people are fighting to just simply breathe and with just one blink of an eye it can be gone. Let’s unite as one and be strong for the less fortunate and the falling. Donate what you can and do what you can. My heart is for you Vegas.
||Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that. #lovealwayswins ||
In the event that has happen in Vegas, I am happy to hear stories of humans just like you and me turn into life saving hero's. During times like this we could be filled with such anger and hate, but let's let the light eradicate into love..We can't let hate win it will only feed the anger. Let the light emerge from the darkness.Let Love win.
I'll be praying hard for the families in Vegas, victims family's, the witnesses, the first responders, the Drs, surgeons, law enforcement, and everyone who is hurting. May healing and strength fill with them in the coming days, weeks, and months
I am still in shock after this horrible tragedy 💔 I wish I could rid the world of all the hate and hurt. It truly breaks my heart. It's hard to believe we were there almost a year ago.....you never think something like this will happen. Even in this horrible tragedy the civilians of our beautiful country remind us what it's like to work together as one. Many helped to save the lives of complete strangers! That is something I will never forget 🙏🏻 #uniteasone#lovewillalwayswin#prayforvegas#bethechange#onerandomactofkindness#fuckhate
Be the best version of yourself. Strive to be your own role model, and inspire yourself. We often look to others for our 'goals' and as role models; which isn't a bad thing! Until we start comparing ourselves to them. Work to have the characteristics you admire in others, not to be a photocopy of them. It is our differences that unite us. 💕#pursuehappiness#uniteasone#beYOUtiful#beyourself#begreatsouled#goforit
Today, in a divided country thats in so much pain, it is hard to feel whole on this birthday. It is hard to feel happy or content knowing so many others hurt , mourn, are starved and have been without clean water or electricity. Coast to coast so many are without all of these things we are lucky to still have. All of my heart and love goes out to each and every one of them. Today its about them and what we can do to help or progress in making our country better and helping those in need. We love you #LasVegas , #PuertoRico and everywhere in between. .#standstrong and #UniteAsONE
It costs ZERO dollars to spread kindness, positivity and LOVE.
Normally I don’t speak my mind so publicly on things that are happening in the world, but this time I can’t hold my tongue.. It honestly saddens me that there are awful things going on in this world right now and yet people STILL find a way to argue, fight and become even more divided. In times like this we need to come TOGETHER and HELP those in need in any way we can!
Not everyone can afford to give things or actually go out and DO something. Sometimes all you can do is pray (if that’s your thing) or just be nice. Just because you don’t agree with what someone else is doing or not doing, doesn’t mean you have to be an ass about it!
There are people who have lost EVERYTHING in the hurricanes and the shooting, people who have lost their family, people who have lost their jobs because their business got blown away and now they don’t have money to eat, people who do still have their families, but no home and have no money to take care of them, there are sons, daughters, moms, dads, sisters, brothers, uncles, aunts, grandmas, grandpas, grandchildren, PEOPLE who have LOST their life or their loved one in the natural disasters and in the shooting.
These people want HELP. They want positivity, they want love, they want kindness, they want us to come TOGETHER. The LAST thing anyone wants is for everyone to fight all the time, which does nothing to help what’s going on.
Even if you can’t directly help someone in need out there, you still have people around you that need love. You have family, friends, coworkers. So B E N I C E!!!!!!! My heart aches for all the victims and their families and I wish I could do more. My main mission in life is to help as many people as I can, in any way I can. Until I can do more, I will spend my time building people UP instead of tearing them down. If we all decided to be a little nicer each day, the world would be a far less scary place.
You may feel like you can’t do much or what you can do doesn’t matter, but YOU can BE the CHANGE in the world. If each and every day we all decided to be a little bit of a better person, the world would be better.
