Monday Mantra: Muhamad Ali

Though "float like a butterfly, sting like a bee" may be Muhammad Ali's most recognized quote, we've chosen a different one for today's Monday Mantra. “The person [man] who views the world at 50 the same as they [he] did at 20 has wasted 30 years of their [his] life.” Having lived through such a historically eventful time in recent history, Ali's success as an athlete and his passionate beliefs placed him in a perpetual spotlight. A diagnosis of Parkinson's Disease in 1984 didn't stop him. Always involved in philanthropic activities and organizations, he continued his work- never allowing his personal hardships (past or then-present) to muddy his commitment to charity towards others. Muhammad Ali is a champion not only of the boxing ring, but...

Monday Mantra: In Memoriam

Today's Monday Mantra is one of my favorite quotes by JFK, to honor the brave men and women who walk into the fights most people run away from.

Monday Mantra

“Speak only if it improves upon the silence.”- Gandhi With a multitude of offensive and frightening excerpts from last week's pissing contest (a.k.a. the Republican debates) still whirling in my head, I thought this was the only appropriate Monday Mantra. It's no surprise that I found it difficult to watch the primetime showdown, as I don't support any of those candidates. I expected to be angered by views on contraception and healthcare for women. I expected to be reminded of the fact that most of the Republican candidates care more about an unborn fetus than the health and safety of the woman carrying it or, for that matter, the child itself once born. I expected to hear about Ronald Reagan, the economy, Iran and Benghazi ad nauseam. I knew it would seem like torture, but I didn't expect to be quite...
