Rainy Day Diary

A diary written on rainy days or any other day when this writer feels like writing or posting something.

Although I will never willfully try to offend anybody or will most likely refrain from posting outright risque material, I may post/re-blog what could perhaps be considered unorthodox material - but always with an appreciation of the cinematic, literary or artistic. This blog will express itself in an avant-garde, sometimes esoteric way.... please enjoy....
Happy Good Friday

Gene Sharp From Dictatorship to Democracy

Gene Sharp From Dictatorship to Democracy

You will recognize your own path when you come upon it, because you will suddenly have all the energy and imagination you will ever need.

Ignorance, which is contented and clumsy, will produce what is imperfect, but not offensive. But ignorance discontented and dexterous, learning what it cannot understand, and imitating what it cannot enjoy, produces the most loathsome forms of manufacture that can disgrace or mislead humanity.

"The goal is not to turn kids into your kind of adult, but rather, better adults than you have been. Progress happens because new generations grow and develop and become better than the previous ones.”

From Adora Svitak’s talkWhat adults can learn from kids.” In her talk, Adora makes a case for why adults shouldn’t underestimate kids. And they shouldn’t. Kids are doing amazing things. Let’s just take a second to think about how Adora organized her first TEDxYouth event when she was just 12.

This weekend, young people around the world are attending, organizing, speaking at, and watching TEDxYouthDay events — TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and we think you should be, too. Find a TEDxYouthDay event near you to attend or watch live online here.
