    Dear Paul&Detective Lance,
    I know I speak for more than myself when I say I am extremely grateful for you and Stephen for creating such a genuine and loving community on facebook. It lights up my day every time I see a heartwarming post, be it a meme or a video. I’ve been waiting for “the right time” to share with you a cause that I’m passionate about until I realized there’s no better time than now. This is a cause that’s very closely related to Arrow. It’s about embracing humanity.
    I’m a college student at the University of Michigan. When Season 3 of Arrow began airing, I was taking a class called Atonement Project with Shaka Senghor. Shaka shot and killed a man when he was 19. He served 19 years in prison including 7 and a half years in solitary confinement. In 2010, he returned home. Fast forward to today, he is a Ted Talk speaker, a published author and a faculty at UofM. Taking Shaka’s class and watching Arrow at the same time got me asking one question: What’s next for the people Arrow put away? Being arrested can be the end of their stories in the show, but what about in real life where most of them are gonna eventually return home?
    Shaka is an extremely lucky exception because he has people supporting him and teaching him how to love and to forgive while he was incarcerated. A lot of people don’t get to have that. They enter prison – a bitter place – with a bitter heart and a broken support system. I love Arrow, and I know Oliver and his team can’t save everyone. They can’t just suddenly turn all the folks at Iron Heights into the most loving and caring members of our community. Neither can we, but we can start thinking. And maybe me sharing this story with you will do something. Maybe we can do something. Thank you!

    Lots of Love,
    El

    Here are some links I want to share with you

    EGYPT’S SACRED CIRCLE OF SOUND MEDITATION

    On Wednesday, February 9th at 2:00pm (local time) we will be having a Sacred Circle of Sound Meditation at The Centre in Cairo EGYPT.

    We ask anyone who would like to participate, anywhere in the world to join us in spirit. We are at an important point in time for all of humanity. Egypt is a fulcrum, what happens here will impact everyone. In an effort to evolve consciously rather than move back into the old paradigm of power struggles we ask that you join us in setting an intention for the highest good for all of humanity. To help us create a space for new, unimagined, paradigms to emerge.

    The purpose of this gathering is to come together as friends and share an intention for the best possible outcome for Egypt. This is not a political gathering in anyway it is meant for friends to come together for healing, emotional support, and to realign our selves with Divine unfolding. There is no agenda we are just creating a sacred space for healing and re-centering. The past 12 days have been a roller-coaster ride, and it is not over yet. We all need some grounding and support.

    We will be playing the crystal bowls brought to Egypt by Circle of Sound, as well as setting an intention of Harmony, Acceptance, Unity, Joy and Compassion for all. There will also be a group meditation. If you play any instrument and would like to bring it to the gathering please do.

    If anyone would like to use the Al-chemia Remedies to assist them through this time, they will be available. Please bring a clean container to the gathering to take the remedy home with you. You will use the remedy at home in your own sacred space.

    For those who would like to join us from other locations the format will be:
    -We will begin by observing a minute of silence for all those who have died on all sides.
    -Then form the circle with bowls and players and everyone, sitting around the circle.
    -Clarify the intentions of Harmony, Acceptance, Unity, Joy and Compassion among all beings of the planet.
    -Play the bowls for approximately fifteen minutes.
    -Reaffirm our intentions of Harmony, Acceptance, Unity, Joy and Compassion among all beings of the planet.
    -Observe a twenty minute silent meditation.
    -Dispense remedies to anyone who would like to use them.

    We would like to begin promptly at 2:00pm Cairo time (12:00pm GMT ). The gathering will last approximately an hour. If you cannot attend the gathering at the Centre please join us in spirit.

    I am posting the information on my blog so that people outside of Egypt will join us from wherever they are.

    Project Green Gift
    http://www.projectgreengift.com

    One of my clients created this program. The following a brief overview from the “How it works” section of the website:

    “ProjectGreenGift.com carbon dioxide offsets are being achieved through a tree-planting program undertaken by the Confederated Salish and Kootenai (CSK) Tribes in the State of Montana. The CSK Tribes are comprised of the Bitterroot Salish, the Pend d’Oreille and the Kootenai tribes. They currently reside in the Flathead Reservation which is made up of 1.3 million acres in northwest Montana but their ancestors lived in the territory now known as western Montana, parts of Idaho, British Columbia and Wyoming.

    Each recipient will receive an Environmental Remediation Certificate from Sustainable Forestry Management Ltd. (SFM) certifying that trees planted will offset your CO2 emissions for one year”.

    A Green Alternative to AAA

    Many Americans use AAA for roadside assistance, and I used to be one of them. I had no idea that AAA was an anti-environmental lobby that was working to try to stop the Clean Air Act and block efforts to increase public transportation use.

    There’s a new auto club that is much more environmentally friendly. They donate 1% of profits for environmental causes and even have roadside assistance for bicyclists.

    The fees are comparable and you’ll feel better too:

    Search for Cures, Predict Climate Changes, Search for ET

    This is an oldie but goody. I got into it by being one of the pioneers in the SETI@Home (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) program run through the university at Berkeley, California. I didn’t really have a choice about getting involved. I was born in Roswell, New Mexico and you’re pretty much required to believe in extra-terrestrial life if you’re from there. When a UFO crashes in your backyard it’s hard not to notice. ; >)

    Anyway, SETI@Home started around a decade ago. You just signed up and got the software to help them process a portion of their tens of thousands of hours of data on your computer in the background or as a screensaver. They finish calculating and searching in less time and you contribute a little something to the endeavor.

    It has been such a success as people from around the world clamor to join that other scientists decided to get in on the action. So new software called BOINC was designed to allow other science projects to use the computing power available in personal computers around the world. Now you go to the site below and it has links and directions on installing BOINC software on your computer. Then you can link to the SETI@Home project, the Rosetta Project, Climate Prediction project and many others. You can run more than one at a time. There are many different science projects that you can be a part of to help make the world a better place. BOINC runs in the background and/or as a screensaver with the parameters that YOU get to choose so it doesn’t interfere with your computer use.

    Wonderful Sites to Click and Help

    I go to these sites every morning as part of my waking-up process. All you have to do is go to the site and CLICK in the spot they indicate to get food for rescued animals, help save rainforests, feed the hungry, get medical attention for children, help with breast cancer research, and increase literacy throughout the world. I start with the Animal Rescue Site and work my way across the tabs to click on each of the click-donation buttons every day.

    They have a second way to help, too, and that’s to purchase items from each site. Proceeds go to the indicated charity. I try to buy as many birthday and holiday presents through them as I can. They have many items from around the world that are unusual and fun. This way I get to donate to causes I believe in AND I also get to tell others about them by sending the gifts and passing on the info that way.

    By clicking on the site below you can reach all of the charities. There are tabs across the top of the screen to access the others. You don’t have to buy anything to donate, just click and the advertisers donate. If you want to give more, then you can purchase items or donate directly.

    Free Rice: Have fun and feed the hungry

    For each word you get right, they donate 10 grains of rice to end world hunger – doesn’t sound like much, but the vocab game is addictive and the grains add up quickly!

    Here’s how it works: Play the game, advertisements appear on the bottom of your screen. The money generated by these advertisements is then used to buy the rice. The rice is donated to/distributed by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP).

    There’s also a myspace-inspired reading site called http://www.goodreads.com. You can network with other bibliophiles.

    PAY IT FORWARD…

    I happened upon this site a while back that was started by the author of the book (Pay it Forward) that turned movie, and thought it was an inspiring concept.
    http://www.payitforwardmovement.org/groups.html
    I think many of us pay it forward in various ways, but probably not often to strangers. One situation that I felt grateful for happened in December of 2006. I was heading home and going through a toll, when someone in front of me did the simple act of paying for my toll too. On top of that, the toll collector said “Bless you, and have a Merry Christmas.” I don’t hear holiday cheer spread all that often these days, so that coupled with the nice “pay it forward” put a smile on my face that evening. And what did I do on my way home? I paid a few other people’s tolls.
