HELP IS NEEDED [Jun. 18th, 2008|12:59 pm]
Soapbox Preachers

softfirelight
As some of you know John and I have joined the Quaker Community. We found that the views and ideology of the Quakers fits in with our views. One of the biggest values I have found in the Quaker community is their sense of helping others no matter who they are, there is no discrimination. They see a need and they help without questions. Recently, a co-worker of mine grandson, Chad Czapor was diagnosed with a brain tumor that needs a delicate operation. The insurance company is refusing to pay for the surgery because the doctor that they want to use is in New York and not Pennsylvania which puts him "out-of-network". This boy is a junior in high school and has his whole life ahead of him. It's unbelievable to me how insurance companies do not take these things into consideration. They have a dollar amount and that is it. The doctor in New York was willing to take whatever the insurance company would pay a "Pennsylvania" doctor, but again they said no. The amazing thing is that this New York doctor is part of the insurance company's "in-network" doctor, but only in New York. So basically, they recognize his abilities, they use him as part of their services, but only in New York--how stupid is that! So the family is trying to get monies together for Chad in order to pay for the surgery. This is a link to the website where donations can be made and taken as a tax deduction.

I'm asking everyone to at least look at the website. The ironic thing is that the other family, The Jones family is a friend of my boss, Lauren. The father passed away suddenly due to another brain condition and they are trying to gather funds for that family as well. If you feel that you can make a donation to either one of these families or both, it would be greatly appreciated. I figured that the only way to the word around was to post on the sites that I normally frequent.

If I knew a way to do a mass posting all over the country I would. If any of you out there would like to post the link to places where you frequent that would also be helpful. The only way to get help is to spread the word. Sometimes, help comes in other forms other than cash. So please do whatever you can to make people aware that there is a need out there and that we as a society can help everyone in many different ways. Do what you can whenever you can. Thank you for reading this post.

Happy Holidays [Dec. 19th, 2005|11:57 pm]

What is so wrong with that phrase that makes people so angry, I mean for goodness sakes it is the Holidays, the Christians do not have a monopoly on Holiday seasons, there were holidays in this time of the year LONG before Christians even existed! You know its getting extreamly horrid to listen about how angry people are getting because Happy Holidays is more politically correct over Merry Christmas.... hummm lets consider it We have Yule, Hanakkah(sp), Kwanzaa, as well as Christmas, so what the fuck is wrong with just combining them and saying Happy holidays that way you cover everyone... but NO the Damn Christians have to be the ones that claim SOLE DOMAIN over everything... I wish their God would just go ahead and rapture those dumb, intolerant fucks and just let the rest of the "heathan" world live in peace, without the fear of getting stoned by a buch of sinless sinful bastards....



Oh Well Merry Fucking Christmas, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS

My sister comes home Saturday night and starts telling us about going to dinner with a guy she likes. No big deal, right? Cut for language and possible eating disorder triggersCollapse )

Jesus [Nov. 23rd, 2005|04:27 pm]

Ok, I am a lot of things and racist is not one of them, but I noticed something that just bothers me…. I’m not a Christian nor do I really like to judge what others believe, but the last time I checked Jesus was of Hebrew lineage correct? So that would make him Jewish, not? Ok well why is it that when I went into Wal*Mart the other day there were figurines depicting Jesus as black man. I mean like I said I’m not racist but the Hebrew people are not black, so how can Jesus be black? I mean seriously… it’s the same as the Blue-Eyed Jesus, not many true-Hebrew people have blue eyes… So why worship a Hebrew if your going to make him of another race other than Hebrew.. I don’t understand…

Oh and just for the record, I do know of one black Jewish man, but I don’t think Sammy Davis Jr. counts… .
