Most people don’t see the behind-the-scenes of our lives—the hard work, time, tears, and energy we put in.
Just a friendly reminder—whatever you’re doing, keep on going. You’re doing great...

“On social media, and on live television, the victims were not playing their parts. They were not asking for privacy in their time of grief. They did not think it was “too soon” to bring up the issue of gun control—in fact, several students would start shouting “gun control” within the very sanctum of the candlelight vigil. What was already becoming clear that night, less than thirty-six hours after the shootings, was that the students were going to shame us, all of us, with so much articulacy and moral righteousness that you willed the news anchors to hang their heads in national solidarity. It was a bad week for a lot of reasons, but at least we had evidence of one incorruptible value: the American teen-ager’s disdain for hypocrisy.” From this week’s @newyorkermag .
And a little child shall lead them. Or perhaps, shame them. .

Peter Wang is not a fictitious comic book hero. Peter Wang is not a millionaire athlete/entertainer. Peter Wang is a 15 year old hero that will live forever! It’s a shame that he will never grow old enough to lead our next generation of soldiers. God had other plans and posted him where he was needed. Now he’s an angel guarding heaven!
If you don’t know Peter Wang’s story, he was killed (wearing his JROTC uniform) while holding the door open so teachers and schoolmates could escape. I know I didn’t have to say Peter Wang’s numerous times, I just wanted his name known. #RESPECT 🇺🇸 #selflessness#iHaveFaithInOurYouth#Hero#Bravery#PeterWang#Servitude#Inspiration
The road to success is never an easy one. Comment your thoughts.

Peter Wang lost his life in service to others. The U.S. Military Academy honors Peter Wang with an honorary admission for his bravery and selflessness.
One of West Point's priorities is to develop leaders of character who are committed to the values of Duty, Honor, and Country. Peter Wang's actions on February 14th are an example of those very principles and for this reason the academy honors his dream of being a West Point cadet with a 2025 letter of acceptance.
We honor Peter Wang for being a leader of character and we send our condolences to the families of all the victims.
The three JROTC lost were Alaina Petty, Peter Wang and Martin Duque. Our nation needed service members with hearts like these kids.
This has been on my mind all day. Thinking about all the events of the last week, the bravery of the kids in Florida speaking out to make a change on behalf of their lost classmates, teachers and friends. Love is the answer, it is the ultimate renewable resource, it will change the world. Thank you @blissology for the seed you plant. Xo #love#peace#bravery#change#standup#speakout#makechangehappen
Count your blessings. Try to see the good in every situation. Thank God for another day here on earth. Unfortunately, the last 24 hours have been extremely difficult for my family and I. Mulitple imaging scans (CT & MRI) have confirmed that the cancer is progressing. They have found new nodes and one by my spine now. I'm starting to feel piercing pain because of it. The treatment I'm on isn't working for me. I will continue to put my life in God's hands and trust in Him. I will be going to see another doctor who has a clinical trial that might help me, given that this time around genetic testing shows a mutation in the most recent biopsy (January). Please keep me in your prayers, send me all your healing energy and thoughts as I move forward with my very challenging fight. I have my boxing gloves on and ready to continue fighting. Bring it on cancer, I'm ready to knock you out once and for good!!! Jesus Christ powers my punches!!!! 🙏🏽💪🏽🥊 Victory is His! #teamjesuschrist#courage#strength#bravery#familysupport#friendsupport#optimism#cancerisdead#determinedtolivecancerfree#theycallmewonderwoman#thanksbetogod🙏🏽

A whole lot of people very close to me have been posting about having sober birthdays, and reflecting on the journey they’ve taken to get to this point.
I don’t know what it is about February that inspired you all to finally say “enough is enough” but I’m grateful for it.
I haven’t struggled in the same way exactly. I’ve been open about my own battle with ED and BDD but it’s not the same monster as drug addiction. I’m inspired by all of you. It takes incredible strength to say that you need help, and you all did that. That is real courage. That is bravery. I love all of you. And if anyone ever needs help taking the first steps to get clean, I will help you however I am able, even if it just means connecting you with one of these incredible fighters I’m talking about. #happybirthday#soberbirthday#courage#bravery#soberisbeautiful
This day so far, is not my favourite. My head is pounding with such force. The light and every sound, send me reeling. I’m nauseous and hot. I long for a cold, dark, quiet room.
Truth is I have to get up. I choose to function and parent even though I feel this way. A cup of coffee, a glass of water and a pep talk and I’m vertical. .
It’s been almost two years of this. An acquired disorder of migraine with Aura after a head injury.
Some days I’m angry. Angry that these migraines take hours and sometimes days from me. I don’t usually stay in that place for too long before I turn it around, focus on what I can do.
So what can I do...
I will acknowledge and accept that today, my best will look different than yesterday. I will take good care of me and monitor my internal dialogue. I will extend to myself, the empathy and kindness needed to get thru this day.
▸You are one of a kind⠀
▸You are here to share your wisdom with your community and the world ⠀
▸It's your time to shine⠀
▸Show up for you ⠀
▸Show up for yourself everyday first and foremost before you show up for others.⠀
Even if you set aside 20-30 minutes for rehabilitation to enhance your flexibility, strength and or mobility.⠀
A lot of progress is possible and more than you think. ⠀

Bhai Mani Singh Ji was a great scholar, a devoted Sikh and a courageous leader. Bhai Mani Singh received amrit on the day the Khalsa was created at the hands of Guru Gobind Singh Ji. Bhai Mani Singh compiled the Dasam Granth and is most famous for sacrificing his life for Sikhi. Bhai Mani Singh was arrested by the Mughal emperor, however the charges were false. Bhai Mani Singh Ji was then asked to embrace Islam or to except death! Bhai Mani Singh refused to barter his faith and accepted death. The Mughal emperor ordered the executioner to chop Bhai Mani Singh Ji's body to pieces joint by joint starting from the fingers. Today Bhai Mani Singh Ji is remembered for sacrificing his life for Sikhi!! #legend#martyr#sikhi#sikh#waheguru#bhaimanisinghji#bravery#courage#sacrifice#scholar #🙏
