1/🧵 Are you happy?

My brother w #DownSyndrome is teaching me tons of life lessons.

In medicine & in life, I make big decisions based on guesstimates of other’s Quality of Life #QOL.

What do adults w #disability teach me about TRUTH?

Can I learn? Image
2/🎥 How do we “calculate” someone’s #QOL?
#Confession: I get it all wrong when I impose MY judgment onto THEIR life.
Greg, my 57 y/o brother-in-law with Down Syndrome, has a better QOL than I do.


Digest this…read on…
3/ My working definition of QOL is “the ability to give & receive love.”


Greg understands the Law of the Gift: Treasures GROW when we give them away.

It’s the opposite of hoarding.

Yet, giving ourselves to others can be SCARY. Greg ponders deeply these emotions. Image

1/ Παμε με θρεντάκι express μετά την σημερινή αντιπαραθεση του #μητσοτακη_παραιτησου με την #ολλανδη η #Ολλανδεζα δημοσιογράφο...που χάλασε το σενάριο με τις "non-direct" ερωτήσεις που έχει συνηθίσει να λαμβάνει ο πρωθυπουργός μας οπως εκείνος υπονόησε..

1/ το βίντεο με τον #ξιαρχο εμετικό...κατ`ελάχιστο...

Πιθανότατα "υπο την επήρεια" όπως εντόπισε και η κυρία που υπέστει το bullying αλλά αντέδρασε εξαιρετικά...

Είναι η συγνώμη του #ξιαρχο στο instagram, αληθινή και ειλικρινής; Παμε να δουμε σε #thread...
2/ Στην πρώτη κιολας πρόταση της "συγνώμης" βλέπουμε τον ορισμό του #psychological #distancing με τα εμετικά σχόλια περι...οριζόντιων ριγων - συνοδευομένα με τα ηλίθια γέλια - να βαπτίζονται..."σχολιασμός" ενώ μιλάμε για τον ορισμό του εκφοβισμου (#bullying) και της παρενοχλησης
3/ θα θυμούνται οι φίλοι/ες ότι το psychological distancing είναι παγια τακτική των θυτών οταν αυτοί νιωθουν ένοχοι για κάτι...την οποία βλέπουμε σε πολλές μορφές βιας... ("πηρα" αντι για "εκλεψα", "σεξουαλική πραξη" αντι για "βιασμος", "έκανα κακό" αντι για "δολοφονησα" κτλ)...

😥Wakati nimefika AYA Sec 2007 Kondoa kuanza form 1 (boarding), niliibiwa suruali 3, mashuka 2, viatu, nk. Ilikuwa ndio 'Welcome Party' pale kila mwaka. Kuhamishiana vitu ilikuwa ni kawaida sana bwenini kwetu.
#TravStories #Testimony
Nilipofika Form 2 nikaanza kujifunza hizo mishe na mimi. Nakumbuka nilijifunza kutekenya KILA KUFULI unayoijua wewe. Enzi hizo SOLEX zinasifiwa balaa, ila kwangu hazikuwa shida kabisa😁. Nilikuwa na bunda la funguo natembea nalo. Nikitaka chochote napata fasta kwenye matranka😆
Sabuni zangu hazikuwahi kuisha. Ilikuwa raha sana kupata chochote nilichokitaka. Baada ya hapo nikatamani kuiba VIKUBWA zaidi. Na hapa ndipo nilipobugi mpenzi msomaji😁. Endelea 👇

Outlined briefly below is a balanced TEN POINT SPIRITUAL PROGRAMME for the family which each individual can use:

(thread, in instalments) Image

The first act of each day should be the Sign of the Cross. It involves the body and soul and is an expression of our faith in a nutshell. The basic doctrines of three Persons in one Godhead and the Son becoming man and dying on the Cross for our salvation
1b) are all contained in this act of faith. After making the Sign of the Cross, it is well to add: "Behold I come to do Your will, O God."

1 / Well, this is it, my final week as medical director of our heart transplant program. Please welcome Dr Andrija Vidic who accepts the new role, and as @UNOSNews #OPTN Primary Transplant Physician, October 1st. (a brief explanatory thread).
2/ More than five years ago @TravisAbicht and I left @NorthwesternMed @NMCardioVasc to begin a journey of developing a new comprehensive HF and heart transplant program @KUHospital making history reported by @KCStar in early 2017.
3/ We are presently at more than 40 LVADs implanted and 30 transplants for calendar year 2020 and we have enjoyed some excellent outcomes every year.

1/ Remember that you will not dismantle the systems of racism overnight. It took over 400 years to build up and maintain systems of inequality and injustice.
2/ While 2020 has created a significant inflection point for fighting racial injustice – there is much work to be done and it all won’t happen or be solved overnight. The Scriptures remind us that every part of the body must do its work.
3/ This is applicable both spiritually and naturally. Everyone may not be called to march on the street, but we are all called to commit to loving our neighbor. One of the ways that we love them is by committing to the work of anti-racism.

1/ Over the last several weeks, I began journaling my response to the murders of #GeorgeFloyd, #AhmaudArbery and #BreonnaTaylor. My world is uniquely intertwined to the present challenges.
2/ As an African-American father of 3 boys, I am a son of Ghanaian heritage, and married to a beautiful scientist of Ghanaian-American descent. I have the privilege of co-pastoring a multi-ethnic church in the Boston area.
3/ All of my worlds are affected by the brokenness of racial injustice.

[Thread] Let me give thanks to one thing publically: For the nakedness and hypocrisy of neoliberalism in the last decade. No longer is it necessary to parse words, speculate about secret motives, or to interpret dogwhistles to understand gov’t power in the US. #ThankfulFor /1
It is helpful to simply watch those with power express their true actions of de-humanization and greed. Their mentality is so arrogant that there is little worry about hiding their true intentions for fear of political retribution. In fact, most are empowered! /2
Yet, many pundits/politicians/intellectuals (in the broadest sense) are still chided for their direct assessments of hypocracy, corruption and greed in our current world. How much more clarity do you need??? The fog of interpretation has in essence been lifted... /3

1/ On Thursday 15 November 2018, President Trump gave a speech at The White House conference on Supporting Veterans and Military Families. What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of a crucial portion of this speech.
2/ After about ten minutes of listing claimed accomplishments of his administration, Donald Trump said (continuing at 11:05), "... So, in addition to everything else, as you see, I did thee [sic] promotion of military spouse hiring across the federal government..."

#CONFESSION: I didn't vote in 2010.

I didn't understand the importance of midterms. I was in college in NY, away from my home state of IL. I didn't know how I'd vote.

I told myself it didn't matter b/c both IL + NY are blue states, so my vote wouldn't make a difference, right?
#CONFESSION: I didn't vote in 2012.

Despite believing that presidential elections matter — in 2012, life got in the way. I lost my mom 1 month out.

Again, I didn't know how to vote while at college. Besides, both NY and IL are blue, so my vote wouldn't make a difference, right?
#CONFESSION: I didn't vote in 2014.

Out of college, I had moved to LA, but I didn't know if I'd be there long, so where would I vote? Besides, I thought midterms didn't really matter. Besides, CA is a blue state, like IL and NY, so my vote wouldn't make a difference, would it?
