March 22 is World Water Day. The 2016 theme is ?Better water, better jobs.?
The power of water and jobs ? transforming people’s lives. Half of all workers on Earth are employed in water-related sectors. Millions of them are unrecognized and unprotected. ? UN-Water
Yea! Everyone is for better jobs. So, here?s a gentle United Nations (UN) video-reminder to multinational corporations that they should not abuse the human rights of their workers. Allow me to say it more plainly: Exploiting people and/or the environment for profit is shameful; it?s stealing.
Exploitation is a shameful practice when it occurs in small, poor nations halfway around the world. It is no more shameful when it occurs in Kentucky coalfields, on Native American reservations, or in Flint, Michigan ? it?s only closer to home.
But let?s not get all weepy.
World Water Day is intended to heighten awareness of ordinary people throughout the world…

Dear Lord God, You know how much I Love my brother Stephen. Please help me be a better caregiver and please increase pay for his Direct Care Workers. I’m very worried and afraid. Stephen is my whole Life. He is my reason for being.
These are the people who help take care of my brother Stephen. Please support the Direct Care Workers. Come out to the Rally on March 11th. If you cannot come out to the rally to increase the salaries of Direct Care Professions please call, write, or email Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Thank you. Unfortunately because of my work schedule I cannot be at the Rally. Those of you who have been following over a period of time know that it has been next to impossible for me to get time off work for Stephen or to extend my Autism Activism/Advocacy.

There are many like me who do not use their real names on there anyway.
Yesterday I was thinking of possible blog ideas when I got a Whatsapp message from my sister. It was one that brought a smile to my face, but also gave me the perfect idea. Her profile picture on Whatsapp was the same, and I thought; how about I write about that? There must have been a few people online who saw the different profile pictures on their friends’ pages and had no idea what it stood for.
Before I opened their…
