Love Cannot Be Indelibled Easily

Angelina Jolie stepped out to attend the 4th annual Women in the World Summit on April 4, 2013. The event was held in New York at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theatre, according to ABC News.

If a man and a woman kidnap you they have plans of keeping you a long time, but plan an escape immediately. They want a sex slave usually, so you will be used and you need to stay alive. I am sure this is how Elizabeth Smart stayed alive too. I can see this is Jaycee and Sharon Marshall too.

Putting your pet down is usually a decision made by you and your vet, or sometimes you and your family based on your pets illness or the circumstances involved. Sometimes it is sudden and you have no choice at all. They are hit by a car and are not able to be kept alive. Other times you may be told by your vet that there is little or no hope it is only a matter of time.

When we bring home our bundle of joy from the hospital and we embark on our journey with that little soul, we are happy. We’re happy until they keep us up all night with the colic and we’re exhausted from all the work and slowly our happy faces shift into the often grim reality of the huge responsibility we now have to this little bundle. Are we smiling with joy at every moment?

Jolie was all about business because she certainly was not all about fashion. The gorgeous celebrity announced that she would be contributing $200,000 over her own money to “Malala’s Fund.” The fund is named after Malala Yousafzai who is the young girl who was shot in the head by the Taliban for advocating education for girls. The fund was established by Vital Voices and has also received a donation from the Women in the World Foundation. The money will help to provide a school for 40 girls ages 4-12 where the young and Brave Girl lives.

There were two abductors, Homolka and Bernardo. Kristin had worked with Homolka in a veterinarian office years before. There were rituals. They were in a regular house. When I told the FBI she was alive, she was. A few weeks later found dead in the trash like I said.

Now, obviously, if all your child does is sit on the couch and play video games and the praise you’ve given says, “What a way to go pushing those video buttons on the controller!”, they might be a little less capable of the kind of true confidence and happiness we’re talking about instilling.

We must venture into the unknown with love and prayers illuminating the path. Our journey must take us through the unfamiliar territory of personal change. The milestones that we pass will indicate whether we have diluted our egos and moved onto to a trajectory of learning and humility. To remain rooted in the past is to be washed away again. To venture again into the uncertain is life itself….

Eating Disorder Post: The Devil And The Angel On My Daughter’s Anorexic Shoulder

There is a change in your relationship. Your guy is aloof and seems to have lost interest. This is keeping you wondering at what would be a good way to ask him if he has lost interest in you. Here are ways to approach him.

With a television set up in the pediatric ICU, Nicole had been watching the Disney Channel with my brother and sister-in-law at her bedside. As it turns out, That’s So Raven was on that night. Nicole saw it first and startled her parents when she jumped and pointed at the TV. There I was on the screen! I hadn’t even seen the episode yet myself. And here, in the midst of a painful time in intensive care after a routine procedure gone wrong, there was my face on the screen with my niece watching.

Throughout the week I would take my place in rehearsals and then sit in the audience bleachers and play cards with the other extras and actors while the crew set up the next scene. Watching lead actress and Disney mega-star Raven Symone interact with little nobodies like us was probably the most surprising thing of all that week. She talked and laughed with us as though we had been on the show since day one. And as someone who has spent a lot of time working in the entertainment industry I can tell you that, unfortunately, is not the norm.

I made the call to my vet and was shocked to find that my vet would not do a house call for this sad time. I guess I should have asked when she was diagnosed. After calling everyone in the book and begging I finally got a hold of a vet who would come out. She didn’t have any appointments until late the following day. I thought to myself, I will probably have to cancel in the morning, I don’t think she will make it through the night. But Brave Girl she did. She toddled from spot to spot all day. She finally went under my desk and lay there on her favorite blanket and barely moved.

This is what happened with my dog, Athena. She had cancer and we watched her lose weight over the past year until her ribs showed. I made her extra treats and fed her twice as much as the other two dogs to keep her going. I did lots of reading and watched her for signs. It didn’t happen fast, but her time finally came.

12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

When my sister turned and recognized me she started yelling, “That’s my sister! That’s my little sister!” Nurses were bustling around the ICU and looked straight to the screen as one asked, “Seriously?” My proud and excited big sister continued nearly at the top of her voice, “Yes! She’s an actress and she lives in LA…and that’s her! To this day I can hardly believe the timing.

While Angelina does not always hit her fashion mark she always makes her mark in the world. It would be impossible not to admire a woman who has it all and gives it her all. She is truly amazing and just lovely.

What we are starting to see and realize is now that some sexual predators keep the people they abduct and actually try to form a sort of fake family around them. This in itself is similar to what gangs and prison inmate populations do. In other words people take social positions in social order much like wolves, horses, etc, the Alpha being dominant. It is predictable if the person doing the taking did not have a strong family. The element is control and power.

A perverse kind of globalization has equalized all of us. No matter where we live, how we look and what we earn, nature’s destructive globalization has shattered all of us in the twinkling of an eye. Aren’t we refugees all, every one of us? What ideology could not do, natures has accomplished; it has revealed starkly that we are all, in the end, truly equal; despite the encrustations of so-called civilization, we are an egalitarian race. None of us can revel in our accomplishments or wealth or position. All it takes is a micro second for it all to vanish.

This past spring I sat with my family as we watch my niece walk across a stage in her cap and gown to receive her diploma at her high school graduation. No one else in the stadium that day truly knew the road that led to her graduation except the group of us sitting there with Brave Girl tears in our eyes.

Kristin French from Canada. I had the opportunity to work on that case and did a profile for the FBI. At the time I told them that Kristin was alive, that there were two people, one of which she knew somehow, as there was no fight when she was taken. I also told them that they had taken her to a house not to far away. A regular house but that there was some kind of rituals, candles, etc. That unless they found her fast, she would soon be dead, dumped in the trash.

Elizabeth Smart is thriving. It takes a lot of work. Steven Staynor, now deceased due to a motorcycle accident, had a tough time adjusting. Jaycee Dugard is working hard I am sure but happy to be with her family.

On this note reading all the cases I have to tell you that making it look like you are cooperating is part of your survival, but always be looking for a way to escape. Most captors try to make you think you are always being watched, that there are companies, corporations or groups watching you when there really isn’t. They are saying that to terrorize you into thinking it is fruitless to try and escape. Don’t believe what they are telling you, they are hurting you. Ignore them and focus on staying calm and coming up with a plan. Whenever another person, police officer or break comes, take it. It may be your only chance. If you get a chance to go out in public, run and scream and get away.

We must venture into the unknown with love and prayers illuminating the path. Our journey must take us through the unfamiliar territory of personal change. The milestones that we pass will indicate whether we have diluted our egos and moved onto to a trajectory of learning and humility. To remain rooted in the past is to be washed away again. To venture again into the uncertain is life itself….

Love Cannot Be Indelibled Easily

There is a change in your relationship. Your guy is aloof and seems to have lost interest. This is keeping you wondering at what would be a good way to ask him if he has lost interest in you. Here are ways to approach him.

The actress selected an overpowering design from Saint Laurent’s Spring 2013 collection to attend the high profile gathering. Her outfit of choice was an olive drab gown which featured a plunging drawstring neckline with tassle detailing. She added a black opera style cover with more tassles which seemed to swallow her up in one big gulp. For accent she added unflattering open toe sandals to complete her look.

The preschooler begins accomplishing new tasks and our praise shifts to specifics. Thank you for picking up your toys so nicely. What a big help you are to Mom. We smile and hug and look for every conceivable way we can to praise both specifics and just in general. They need both. They need to hear how well they did and how great they are.

If a man and Brave Girl a woman kidnap you they have plans of keeping you a long time but plan an escape immediately. They want a sex slave usually, so you will be used and you need to stay alive. I am sure this is how Elizabeth Smart stayed alive too. I can see this is Jaycee and Sharon Marshall too.

I think in the Elizabeth Smart case she was shrewd enough to recognize that she had to go along with her captors to stay alive, yet play their own game of manipulation. It worked; she got her captors, Wanda Barzee and Brian David Mitchell to move closer to her home, someone recognized her.

The children said their goodbyes and left. The vet arrived. Interestingly enough, she wanted to do a mini interview to make sure this was the right time. The vet says sometimes she gets to a house and the dog she is supposed to be putting down is at the door jumping up and down to greet her. She calls this “convenience euthanasia” and that is the reason most vets won’t come to your house unless your dog is their patient. She explained that this occurs when people don’t want the dog anymore so they have someone come and put it down.

We forget that happiness grows from children who have learned how to be happy. And it is a trait, a way of being in the world that isn’t always learned by our children. We see unhappy children, teens and adults all around us. We read about them in the newspaper and see their sins and crimes on the television screen. Unhappy children grow up to be unhappy adults who can’t achieve any of our goals for their life. Or if they do manage to hold on and be unhappy inside and still become a doctor, what joy is there in their achievement.

My advice, get a second opinion and then learn what you can about the illness and if there is treatment and if you can afford it. Read, read, read. Learn what the final stages are. Watch, you will know. The light in their eyes dims, they no longer want to eat or play, only escape. It is heartbreaking but I felt very proud of myself for being brave enough to let go and so must you.

This may sound kind of hokey but the title gives a vivid image of what your daughter experiences when she tries to eat. There are a lot of cartoons, movies and television commercials that depict this epic struggle, but they don’t even come close to describing the raging conflict going on in your child’s mind about food.

With a television set up in the pediatric ICU, Nicole had been watching the Disney Channel with my brother and sister-in-law at her bedside. As it turns out, That’s So Raven was on that night.

And here, in the midst of a painful time in intensive care after a routine procedure gone wrong, there was my face on the screen with my niece watching.

We let her relax for a few moments and enjoy the sedative while we both petted her and gave her affection. Then the vet stopped gave her the final injection. I didn’t even know when she left.

Why is it so important for you to understand this struggle? Because it will help you fathom the life and death situation your child is in. There is a part of her that wants to eat (angel’s voice). In the midst of an eating disorder, however, the part of her that is too afraid to eat (devil’s voice) is stronger and louder.

Now, obviously, if all your child does is sit on the couch and play video games and the praise you’ve given says, “What a way to go pushing those video buttons on the controller!”, they might be a little less capable of the kind of true confidence and happiness we’re talking about instilling.

This epic battle will continue until she eats and gains enough weight so her state of mind can reset to what it was; as Harriet Brown calls it, “BA or Before Anorexia.” Know that as you re-feed your child you are fighting against something very strong. You must know the eating disorder’s tactics and you must be stronger than it to save her.
