Belated Thanksgiving Thoughts…

Hello Everyone!  :-)
 
In the spirit of empowering people and wheelchair users, I want to quickly share my philosophy on "worrying" and also share a few simple things that anyone with a computer & Internet connection can do to make the world a little bit better.
 
Philosophy on Worrying
 
You may have noticed I sometimes write "no worries" which may seem odd since I happen to be ventilator-dependent and paralyzed from the neck down.  What "no worries" means is that it makes absolutely no sense to "worry" about things that we cannot control.  Worrying doesn’t help anything, but it can make a person physically ill.  Personally, I pray and turn all major concerns over to God and let Him worry about them.  That unburdens my mind so that I can focus on today and what I can do.  We all have concerns, but I believe we can all have "no worries" too.
 
Make the World a Little Better
 
On Thanksgiving, most of us had an abundance of food.  But there are people who did not, and the below website is called "free rice" and it is a way we can play some simple "intellectual games" (vocabulary, geography, math, and more) and each correct answer results in 20 grains of rice being donated through the UN World Food Program to help end hunger.  They have multiple choice questions of varying degrees of difficulty, and I find it to be a fun way to both learn something and help the hungry.
 
 
You can also make a difference–in less than one minute–for SIX different charities!  By simply visiting the below websites and clicking their free "donate button" you make a sponsor-paid donation for each cause.

http://www.thebreastcancersite.com – the breast cancer site
http://www.thechildhealthsite.com – the child health site
http://www.theliteracysite.com – the literacy site
http://www.therainforestsite.com – the rain forest site
http://www.theanimalrescuesite.com – the animal rescue site
 
This Thanksgiving, with our world in seemingly uncertain times, I felt it appropriate to share these thoughts.  Thank you for indulging me.
 
Happy (belated) Thanksgiving and may God bless you & yours!  :-)

I started this blog to highlight how wheelchair users, especially power wheelchair users, are being empowered through sport, in particular: dynamic wheelchair bowling. It's actually bowling that emulates the able-bodied bowling process, i.e. setup, then physically approach and release the ball upon stopping short of the foul line. I happen to be paralyzed from my neck down, and ventilator-dependent, yet I've actually bowled 24 legitimate games of 200 or better. I say that NOT to brag, but to show what is possible and make the point that ANY wheelchair user who can safely operate their chair, they can bowl (I helped invent a device that makes it possible). Please look around and feel free to ask any questions! Thanks and God bless!
