A MountainWings Moment - You Make A Difference‏

.

You Make A Difference
======================

.

A teacher in New York decided to honor each of her seniors in
high school by telling them the difference they each made.

.

She called each student to the front of the class, one at a time.

.

First she told each of them how they had made a difference to
her and the class. Then she presented each of them with a blue
ribbon imprinted with gold letters, which read,

.

“Who I Am Makes a Difference.”

.

Afterwards the teacher decided to do a class project to see what
kind of impact recognition would have on a community. She gave
each of the students three more ribbons and instructed them to
go out and spread this acknowledgment ceremony.

.

Then they were to follow up on the results, see who honored whom
and report back to the class in about a week.

.

One of the boys in the class went to a junior executive in a
nearby company and honored him for helping him with his career
planning. He gave him a blue ribbon and put it on his shirt.

.

Then he gave him two extra ribbons and said, “We’re doing a
class project on recognition, and we’d like you to go out, find
somebody to honor, give them a blue ribbon, then give them the
extra blue ribbon so they can acknowledge a third person to keep
this acknowledgment ceremony going. Then please report back to
me and tell me what happened.”

.

Later that day the junior executive went in to see his boss who
had been noted, by the way, as being kind of a grouchy fellow.

.

He sat his boss down, and he told him that he deeply admired him
for being a creative genius. The boss seemed very surprised.
The junior executive asked him if he would accept the gift of
the blue ribbon and would he give him permission to put it on
him. His surprised boss said, “Well, sure.”

.

The junior executive took the blue ribbon and placed it right on
his boss’s jacket above his heart. As he gave him the last
extra ribbon, he said, “Would you do me a favor? Would you take
this extra ribbon and pass it on by honoring somebody else.
The young boy who first gave me the ribbons is doing a project
in school, and we want to keep this recognition ceremony going
and find out how it affects people.”

.

That night the boss came home to his 14-year-old son and
sat him down. He said, “The most incredible thing happened to
me today. I was in my office and one of the junior executives
came in and told me he admired me and gave me a blue ribbon for
being a creative genius.

.

Imagine. He thinks I’m a creative genius.

.

Then he put this blue ribbon that says “Who I Am Makes a
Difference” on my jacket above my heart. He gave me an extra
ribbon and asked me to find somebody else to honor. As I was
driving home tonight, I started thinking about whom I would
honor with this ribbon and I thought about you.

.

I want to honor you. My days are really hectic, and when I come
home I don’t pay a lot of attention to you. Sometimes I scream
at you for not getting good enough grades in school and for your
bedroom being a mess, but somehow tonight, I just wanted to sit
here and well, just let you know that you do make a difference
to me.

.

Besides your mother, you are the most important person in my
life. You’re a great kid and I love you!”

.

The startled boy started to sob and sob, and he couldn’t stop
crying. His whole body shook.
He looked up at his father and said through
his tears, “Dad, earlier tonight I sat in my room and wrote a
letter to you and Mom explaining why I had killed myself and
asking you to forgive me.

.

I was going to commit suicide tonight after you were asleep.
I just didn’t think that you cared at all. The letter is
upstairs.

.

I don’t think I need it after all.”

.

His father walked upstairs and found a heartfelt letter full of

President Barack Obama’s re-election in the United States was watched by millions around the world. People, including world leaders, congratulated him on his success. In addition, they voiced their feelings and presented their opinions. Here’s a sampling of global reaction:

. . . . . .

 

“When you were elected in 2008, you inspired the world with a call to take responsibility for the problems we face as global citizens. Since then, you have made earnest efforts to live up to that great hope and trust placed in you by the American public. I believe you have been re-elected now in recognition of that effort.” — the Dalai Lama.

___ 

“Congratulations to Barack. I’ve enjoyed working with him, I think he’s a very successful U.S. president and I look forward to working with him in the future.”— British Prime Minister David Cameron.

___

“Your re-election is a clear choice in favor of an America that is open, unified, completely engaged in the international scene and conscious of the challenges facing our planet: peace, the economy and the environment.” — French President Francois Hollande.

___

Pope Benedict XVI sent a message to Obama expressing hope that “ideals of liberty and justice, which guided the founders of the U.S.A., may continue to shine on the road ahead for the nation.” — Vatican spokesman the Rev. Federico Lombardi.

___

The trust that the American people wanted to renew in you will allow the international community, Europe and Italy to benefit from your leadership without interruptions. … With your confirmation at the White House, Italy knows it can count on a strong and united America.” — Italian Premier Mario Monti.

____

“As a mother and as a grandmother who raises boy children, I think that the symbolism of having a black man occupy the highest office is something that can make my children very aspirational to know that this is possible, you know, in their lifetime.” — Zindzi Mandela, daughter of former South African President Nelson Mandela.

___

“I will continue to work with President Obama to preserve the strategic interests of Israel’s citizens.” — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

___

“The bond between Europe and North America, based upon the shared values on which our alliance was founded over 60 years ago, remains as strong, and as important to the preservation of Euro-Atlantic peace and security, as ever. President Obama has demonstrated outstanding leadership in maintaining this vital bond.” — NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen.

The United Nations said Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon “warmly congratulates” Obama on his victory and looks forward to continuing to work with his administration on the many global

A MountainWings Moment — The Rented Room‏

    The Rented Room
    ================

    .

    Our house was directly across the street from the clinic
    entrance of Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore. We lived
    downstairs and rented the upstairs rooms to outpatients at the
    clinic.

    .

    One summer evening as I was fixing supper, there was a knock at
    the door. I opened it to see a truly awful looking man.

    .

    “Why, he’s hardly taller than my eight-year-old,” I thought as I
    stared at the stooped, shriveled body. But the appalling thing
    was his face, lopsided from swelling, red and raw.

    .

    Yet his voice was pleasant as he said, “Good evening. I’ve come
    to see if you’ve a room for just one night. I came for a
    treatment this morning from the eastern shore, and there’s no
    bus ’til morning.”

    .

    He told me he’d been hunting for a room since noon but with no
    success, no one seemed to have a room. “I guess it’s my face…
    I know it looks terrible, but my doctor says with a few more
    treatments…”

    .

    For a moment I hesitated, but his next words convinced me,
    “I could sleep in this rocking chair on the porch. My bus
    leaves early in the morning.”

    .

    I told him we would find him a bed, but to rest on the porch.
    I went inside and finished getting supper. When we were ready,
    I asked the old man if he would join us. “No thank you.
    I have plenty.”  And he held up a brown paper bag.

    .

    When I had finished the dishes, I went out on the porch to talk
    with him a few minutes. It didn’t take a long time to see that
    this old man had an oversized heart crowded into that tiny body.

    .

    He told me he fished for a living to support his daughter, her
    five children, and her husband, who was hopelessly crippled from
    a back injury.

    .

    He didn’t tell it by way of complaint; in fact, every other
    sentence was prefaced with a thanks to God for a blessing.

    .

    He was grateful that no pain accompanied his disease, which was
    apparently a form of skin cancer. He thanked God for giving him
    the strength to keep going.

    .

    At bedtime, we put a camp cot in the children’s room for him.
    When I got up in the morning, the bed linens were neatly folded
    and the little man was out on the porch.

    .

    He refused breakfast, but just before he left for his bus,
    haltingly, as if asking a great favor, he said,

    .

    “Could I please come back and stay the next time I have a
    treatment?  I won’t put you out a bit. I can sleep fine in a
    chair.”  He paused a moment and then added, “Your children made
    me feel at home. Grownups are bothered by my face, but children
    don’t seem to mind.”

    .

    I told him he was welcome to come again.

    .

    And on his next trip he arrived a little after seven in the
    morning. As a gift, he brought a big fish and a quart of the
    largest oysters I had ever seen. He said he had shucked them
    that morning before he left so that they’d be nice and fresh.

    .

    I knew his bus left at 4:00 a.m., and I wondered what time he
    had to get up in order to do this for us.

    .

    In the years he came to stay overnight with us, there was never
    a time that he did not bring us fish or oysters or vegetables
    from his garden.

    .

    Other times we received packages in the mail, always by special
    delivery; fish and oysters packed in a box of fresh young
    spinach or kale, every leaf carefully washed.

    .

    Knowing that he must walk three miles to mail these and knowing
    how little money he had made the gifts doubly precious.

    .

    When I received these little remembrances, I often thought of a
