Lost my father after prolonged illness. Miss him every day.
Had to handle mother's serious health issues. Did her angioplasty myself after a heart attack. Later a fall and spine issues.
Saw my niece who was born in front of me finish her Masters from MIT and then get married!……
Realized friends are your strength and support system no matter how far and wide they maybe spread. Talking to a friend or chatting to them even briefly can greatly reduce stress levels! #friendship
Twitter became a source of dissipating health information and education which is a favorite thing for me to do. Grew a good number of followers over the last 3 years. #heartattack , #cardiacarrest, #prevention of heart disease being the major topics. Hoping to make a difference!

#Berlin that is really touching
The #Russian tank dragged and placed in center of Berlin with a NAFO cut out.
#German people brought 2000 roses 🌹 and decorated it. Saying they don't want #war. They want to maintain #friendship with #Russia and #Ukraine and want #peace. 🕊️
This really signals to #Russia, #German ppl aren't your enemy!
I think this msg will resonate with many #Russians!
Stop escalation! Encourage peace 🕊️
Work on solution for the conflict between 2 Slavic nations that has destabilized the world 🌎!
#Germans show there is a path!
Russians on channels response:
"Germans are good people. They suffered a lot after World War II. They are well aware that such actions (of their government) will not lead to anything good.

I will tell you this about that, tho.

If you're disabled and you tell a disabled friend, "Your friendship is not accessible to me right now. I will talk to you in a few months." Woah, person will get mad at you.

That's ok. Let em get mad.
Do you think you have to be friends with every disabled person in the entire world who wants your friendship?

Do you think you have to be friends on the terms set by the other person?

And if so? Why do you think that?
And could it be bc a bunch of abled ppl convinced you thru media & w/e that you, disabled BEAUTY, cannot make friends? Or cannot keep friends? So you have to put up with shit? from the so-called friends?

You dont need ANY friend who disregards yr consent. #Friendship

Tomorrow some of your Christian students may be observing the Christian holiday of Yom Saint Valentine Ha’Kadosh, more commonly known as Christian Tu B’Av.

It is one of their important religious ‘Feast Days’ that even the least frum observe.
The holiday falls on Shvat 23rd this year, which is 14 Febuairiy according to the #Christian #holy #calendar #of #Pope #Gregory.
Even though we are all accustomed to celebrating love on Tu B’Av in the summer, Christians have a tradition of celebrating Yom Saint #Valentine Ha’Kadosh as their own #cultural #day #of #love #and #friendship in the bitter cold of winter.

A #thread on #RetrogradeFilm, the @natgeodocs #Oscar2023 contender documentary by @MattHeineman, produced by my friend @baktashahadi and available on @DisneyPlus and @hulu /1
It's been called "a triumph of access & unbelievable bravery" (@TheWrap), yet it is about much more than the 🇺🇸 withdrawal from 🇦🇫 through the eyes of an Afghan general, @SayedSamiSadat.

It's a story about #leadership, #strategy, #friendship, #war, & our need for #support. /2
1⃣ #Leadership: I watched a case study of a leader (@SayedSamiSadat) facing overwhelming adversity but communicating optimism in the face of danger and constant onslaught from the enemy (and his superiors). How do you Iead in the face of growing certainty of military defeat? /3

Germany’s strategic blunders in its relationship with #Russia are currently hurting all of Europe. We take a look at the parallel relationship between #Germany and #Turkey and the real risks this poses for the West. A thread by #theHELC #NoSubsForTurkey 1/17 Image
The German / Turkish relationship dates from before #WWI, when the #YoungTurks turned to Germany as the most plausible international ally for their decomposing Empire. A secret treaty between the two powers was concluded on August 2, 1914 2/17
The German #Kaiser #WilhelmII visited the #OttomanEmpire three times in total, pledging to the Sultan and the '300 million Mohammedans scattered over the globe and revering in him their caliph, that the German Emperor will be and remain at all times their friend' 3/17 Image

MT @SergeiMillian: "[Papadopoulos] is telling BS [about me having often talked about a Chinese girlfriend and her dad in Beijing]. My girlfriend at the time was an AMERICAN lady and her father lives in NYC. ABC was hunting for her. I'm glad I was able to protect her identity."
MT @SergeiMillian: "During the interview, Brian Ross of ABC got desperate and asked me directly where does my girlfriend live. I replied what's your business about my girlfriend's address? Ross told me somebody gave him tip she lives in Brooklyn. Somebody told Ross wrong info."
MT @SergeiMillian: "She is a remarkable American lady whose name I was able to protect. ABC was especially aggressive at hunting for her day and night."

#Islam has established a universal #Brotherhood.

It is stressed that true #Brotherhood can be established only by virtue of our relationship with one another through God. Other factors — common interests, common pursuits, common occupations...
...may help to foster #friendship and #Brotherhood to a degree, but the very same factors may also engender jealousy and hostility.

It is only the consciousness that mankind are all equally creatures and servants of God and that they must all constantly seek the pleasure of God.
...that can bring about the realization of true brotherhood, which can stand the test of all the contingencies to which life is subject.

Allah says:
“Hold fast, all together, by the rope of #Allah, and be not divided; & remember the favour of Allah, which He bestowed upon you...

This was 2 months after high school graduation. My classmate was missing for 7 months. The devastation & grief were immense after the unexpected loss. We were naïve teenagers facing overwhelming sadness. Eventually her death was ruled a #suicide. #ph260720
In 2016, while living with my best friend, I briefly had a #suicidal roommate. The aftermath of my classmate’s death inspired me to study suicide, but I was not prepared to be the caretaker to a loved one in her time of crisis. #ph260720
About me: I choose #suicidology because I have seen the effects of suicide on families & communities. I am a sociological suicidologist turned #publichealth researcher. Learning from #livedexperiences and using #qualitativemethods in #suicideresearch is important to me. #ph260720

Friendship - oiling the friendship

Some friends are for a season while others are for a lifetime. You must be able to separate both and then service the long-term friendships. Communication is key for strengthening your friendships..
a friend you have not spoken to in 10 years is most likely not your friend anymore as your outlooks are now different.

So make a deliberate decision to reach out to your friends and be involved in their lives. The older you get, the more precious those friends become, so oil it
A man [who has] friends must himself be friendly, But there is a friend [who] sticks closer than a brother.

Many entreat the favor of the nobility, And every man [is] a friend to one who gives gifts.

Friendship - Bear each other's burden

Friendship is more than just a name, it is a responsibility. You are supposed to be there for your friends, to offer a shoulder to cry and a companion for laughter. Their joy is your joy and their burden your prayer point.
David and Jonathan are a very good example of friendship, even at his own expense, Jonathan was happy for David to be the next king. Do you rejoice at your friend's successes or you become jealous? Be a burden-bearer
Share each other's burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ. If you think you are too important to help someone, you are only fooling yourself. You are not that important.

There are "friends" who destroy each other, but a real friend sticks closer than a brother.

Friendship - Truthfulness

"You are not properly dressed", if your friends are unable to say that to you, then you are not being truthful with each other. Friendship requires truthfulness and a certain vulnerability to the end of improvement.
While you are not always looking for each other's faults, you must be comfortable enough to point out your deficiencies, it is better it comes from them anyway than public embarrassment. Make truth the foundation of your friendship.
Friend deceives friend, and no one speaks the truth. They have taught their tongues to lie; they weary themselves with sinning.

One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.

Friendship - Growth

What is the content of your discussion with your friends, what do you spend most of your time talking about? If you are not growing because of your friends then you are depreciating, there is no middle ground.
A simple rule: avoid talking about people and past events rather talk more about ideas, inventions, innovations and spiritual growth. Added benefit is it helps sieve your friends😉
As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.

Walk with the wise and become wise; associate with fools and get in trouble.

One who loves a pure heart and who speaks with grace will have the king for a friend.

Friendship - Choose your friends

Friendship is not by happenstance, it must be deliberate. You can be in a person's company by chance or circumstance but that should not automatically translate into friendship.
Choose your friends based on shared values, beliefs and purpose. Because your actions and worldview will be affected by your friendship, you must then be selective of those you call friends.
Do not be misled: "Bad company corrupts good character.

Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?

The righteous choose their friends carefully, but the way of the wicked leads them astray.

Friendship - Friendliness

Now while you are not required to be a friend to all, you do need to be friendly with all. You owe everyone you meet the debt of love which is paid by being kind and good to all.
Of course in the process of being friendly you will make some friends but don't be discouraged if you don't, that was not the goal in the first place. Be peaceable and kindhearted.
Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for whoever loves others has fulfilled the law.

Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.

Friendship - They can't all be your friends

It is amazing how some people feel everyone around them should be their friends; well news flash, it is actually not logically possible. Everyone cannot and will not be your friend and that is okay.
Learn to be comfortable in being a classmate, colleague, acquaintance etc and nothing more. And it doesn't mean that you are not walking in love or fighting them. Your friends reflect you, so be deliberate.
But Jesus did not commit Himself to them, because He knew all [men,] and had no need that anyone should testify of man, for He knew what was in man.

Do not make friends with a hot-tempered person, do not associate with one easily angered,

Thanks to @kimbiddulph it’s #Archaeology31 time again! - Starting with prompt number one: #new.

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image
#Archaeology31 day 2, #future, offers a great chance to highlight a topic I found particularly interesting as of late:

How will an #ArchaeologyOfTheFuture look like - What do *we* leave behind for future colleagues?

(Weekend reading recommendations included. 😉) Image
Starting with the question what actually constitutes #CulturalHeritage, #sites, and #monuments of our age ...
