I have learned so much from Howard Zinn!
What an amazing person and an inspiration!
Governments Lie: Howard Zinn on Class Warfare, Immigration, Justice, Film and History (2007)
I would also recommend " A People′s History of the United States"
A REAL history lesson!
I was never taught much about Fidel Castro other than he was the devil... But now as an adult I have done my own research and I have found that he is a great man that has changed the course of history and also changed the world and made it a better place for so many people! I was inspired watching this. It's such a shame that American history can't get passed the fact that they couldn't stop this one man and his small country and just educate with some simple facts! But then again I'm not suprised...
This is excellent viewing. Very informative and eduicational. A must see for anyone who believes in people and not company power.
One person can make a difference! Fidel Castro has!

Sun Jifa, a farmer in China, had his life changed forever when an explosive he planned on using for fishing went off prematurely. He lost his arms and when he couldn’t afford high-end, hospital-made prosthetics he opted for a cheaper set. Finding those to be less than acceptable, Sun started building his own pair of arms, which he currently wears. It’s an incredible story of ingenuity and personal strength.

"A wild raven perched himself on our fence and squawked for over an hour. I went to see what was up with him and saw that he had four porcupine quills stuck in him, three in the side of his face and one in his wing. This video shows my Mom taking out the ones in his face. Very bizarre he let us get that close and even more bizzare he let my Mom pull the quills out. He hung around for the day and was gone the next. Best of luck Wilfred (yeah, I named him) lol"

We've had 'Free Hugs' for years, but how about selling 'Deluxe Hugs' for the purpose of giving someone less fortunate a big Act of Random Kindness? That's what the young director of the ethical clothing brand Ark° did in Dublin recently, selling hugs for a euro so he could bring a homeless man out for a proper evening meal.
A cancelled wedding turned into something very very good! Thanks to Willie and Carol Fowler for thinking with their hearts and helping!

When I think about this it makes me want to do the same. Just think... If just once a week when we do our shopping we bought something someone could use, clothing, food or whatever by Christmas we could have at least 50 presents to give to help someone that needs it. What do you think? I can do it... Can you do it too? I figure even if I gave my items to a charity that help people in need... I COULD HELP! Even make a difference! let me know if you do or might like to do the same thing.
I'll keep you posted on what I'm going to do. Let me know what you are going to do and I would love to post it here! Let's help each other and make the world better!
Johnny Barnes (born John James Randolf Adolphus Mills, June 23, 1923) is a Bermuda native found waving to passing traffic at the Foot of the Lane roundabout in Hamilton, Bermuda, from roughly 3:45 am to 10 am, every workday, rain or shine. A Bermuda institution mentioned in several guidebooks and profiled in a documentary film, he is known for waving and saying "I love you, God loves you," to passing commuters during the morning rush hour into Hamilton. Due to the unique layout of the island and its roads, nearly all drivers at rush hour coming from the western and southern areas of the island pass Barnes at the roundabout.
