“Every year on World Humanitarian Day, we shine a spotlight on the millions of civilians around the world whose lives have been caught up in conflict. On this day we also take a moment to honour the brave health and aid workers who are targeted or obstructed as they set out to help people in need, and pay tribute to the government employees, members of civil society and representatives of international organizations and agencies who risk their lives to provide humanitarian aid and protection.” — UN Secretary-General, António Guterres
So if you save a few dollars this weekend, please consider donating to a charity of your choice, such as monies to help the victims of the Charlottesville and Barcelona terror attacks. And if you can’t donate money, donate time at a local organization or donate blood at a local blood drive. #lovenothate

To all my friends out there, happy International Day of Friendship!
And no one sings about friendship better than Umi:
“People who have real dreams
Are so dazzling that they shine.
You’re so earnest that you end up getting hurt.
Yet you always pretend to be strong — that’s why I worry.
When you want to cry, cry! (At any time)
You don’t have to hold yourself back
Since I’ll always be here.
With a little with a little with a little help. When things are difficult, call for me.
With a little with a little with a little help. We’re friends, aren’t we? Don’t hold back
Do your best! I want to be your strength”
“It is in your hands to create a better world for all who live in it.” ~Nelson Mandela

Please take a moment to honor those who have served our country, especially those who made the ultimate sacrifice.
