"Remember, people will judge you by your actions, not your intentions. You may have a heart of gold -- but so does a hard-boiled egg." - Anon Wear a mask, wash your hands, and make sure you understand how ridiculous it is to give "The Donald" four more years. Our country needs to win the COVID-19 war and become the "United" States of America once again. The violence and hatred has to end! Every life matters!
"To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to restore it, and to render it the more fit for its prime function of looking forward." -Margaret Fairless Barber Nineteen years ago we were under attack, we came together and took measures to ensure such a tragedy would never be able to re-occur in this country. It was one of the saddest days in my life and I will light a candle today in remembrance of the past and prayer for our future. We are now under attack again, unlike in the past, we have not come together to defeat the virus that is impacting every one in this country...and in our world. Our leadership has failed us, allowed the enemy to gain strength rather than defeat it. We knew about the dangers of Covid-19 in February...before we had any deaths in our country. POTUS refuses to acknowledge he is part of the problem...not the solution. Our battle is not political it is an enigma that leaders are frozen to take action and refute the biases of our President...we all have heard what he knew in February...he has no shame, no sense of accountability, no interest in anything but himself...SHAME ON YOU DONALD!!!
I saw a television commercial on FOX for you this morning. I find it ironic that you have to put people like me on waiting lists for help but you have money to pay for television commercials.
"What we see depends mainly on what we look for." -Sir John Lubbock
"Our lives are not determined by what happens to us but by how we react to what happens, not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst, a spark that creates extraordinary results." -Anon. Enjoy the holiday weekend and be safe!
WHAT IS LIFE? Life is an Adventure ... Dare it Life is a Beauty ... Praise it Life is a Challenge ... Meet it Life is a Duty ... Perform it Life is a Love ... Enjoy it Life is a Tragedy ... Face it Life is a Struggle ... Fight it Life is a Promise ... Fulfill it Life is a Game ... Play it Life is a Gift ... Accept it Life is a Journey ... Complete it Life is a Mystery ... Unfold it Life is a Goal ... Achieve it Life is an Opportunity ... Take it Life is a Puzzle ... Solve it Life is a Song ... Sing it Life is a Sorrow ... Overcome it Life is a Spirit ... Realize it -Anon.
"Anyone who doesn't believe in miracles is not a realist." -David Ben-Gurion Miracles occur every day in our lives...appreciate them and don't keep it a secret...pass the good news on...there is too much bad news in our lives today.
"The best way to get something done is to begin." -Source Unknown Just Do It! We have all heard this...now listen.
"It's motive alone which gives character to the actions of men." -Jean De La Bruyere We all know that "action" speaks louder than words. Don't just sit on your ass and scratch your head. Do something positive today, something that will make a positive difference to someone other than yourself. Then take a bow.
"One of life's greatest mysteries is how the boy who wasn't good enough to marry your daughter can be the father of the smartest grandchild in the world." -Old Proverb We have to be able to see that every individual has something good to offer this world. Acceptance truly is the answer to serenity.
"You cannot raise a man up by calling him down." -William J. H. Boetcker
"Instruction does much, but encouragement does everything." -Johann von Goethe Motivation comes from within.

Places for People is a non-profit healthcare organization, serving people with severe mental illness and substance use disorders in St. Louis, MO, USA.

Places for People engages 1,600 people in ongoing program services. PfP provides outreach to 3,800 people through intake calls, going out into the community to provide resource and referral assistance, and by providing assessment, triage services and referrals to other service providers.

Places for People provides an unparalleled toolkit of programs, services, and resources for people who have serious mental illnesses, typically accompanied by complex and multilayered challenges: chronic homelessness, substance abuse disorder, primary health disorders, and trauma. Our new mission statement, adopted in March 2013, reflects our commitment to serve the most vulnerable people in our community: “Provide caring, effective services to help those with the greatest challenges recover from mental illness and associated chronic illnesses.”

Mission: By combining human connection with evidence-based care, Places for People understands, empowers, and supports people living with mental and physical illness.

Five years ago, Marilyn was introduced to Places for People when she was in the hospital, unhoused, and trying to deal with stress, depression and concerns with alcohol. "I was down the road to destruction," she recalls.

Today, Marilyn became the first graduate from Places for People's Outpatient Substance Use Treatment program. Members of her treatment team - the Reach Team - wanted to celebrate the accomplishment in person, and presented her this morning with flowers, a balloon, cake, and a certificate at her home.

Marilyn said, "What's next for me is to live a healthy life."
