Working toward a quality education for all.

What are you #StrongerThan?

I have always gotten a kick out of doing something that someone said I couldn’t do or that I am not supposed to do—finishing a grueling hike, building something, fixing something or even something as seemingly simple as getting up each and every day and going back to finish something you started even if everyone is against you. All of that takes strength—the strength to do, the strength to overcome and the strength to keep going.

Call Me, Maybe?

If you are anything like me, you hate the phone. I would much rather someone text me or email me—hey even tweeting me is better than a phone call. But sometimes a good old fashioned phone call is what is going to get the job done and on June 16, we are asking you to dust off the landlines or fire up the cell to place a call for an important cause—the millions of children around the world that are out of school.

Jump In

It is Global Action Week—a week used to highlight all that is being done for the right to education and what is being done to protect that right to education around the world. It is also a great time to jump in and get involved. Jump in to help the 57 million children out of school, jump in to help the 1 in the 3 girls that will be married before the age of 18 in the developing world instead of in school and most pressing jump in for the schoolgirls of Nigeria who need a world community to stand with them, their families and their community.

Collective Action

The numbers in the Philippines are staggering-more than many of us can comprehend. I know when we hear about the enormity of it all, it can be like an old school computer that "can't compute" due to being overwhelmed with the task at hand but the action of many can help get the Philippines and its people back to some semblance of normal.

Appreciate

The holiday creep has started. The pumpkins of Halloween are no longer joined by turkeys and harvest arrangements as we transition from Halloween to Thanksgiving but are instead quickly replaced with wreaths, ornaments and other greenery that signify the winter holidays. While I enjoy winter holidays as much as the next guy, I think it is important to give all holidays their due---to appreciate what they bring and to celebrate them all on their own.
