NEIGHBORHOOD EXPERIENCES

Blog79

More than twenty years ago, Sharon Adams moved back to her childhood home in the Lindsay Heights neighborhood outside of Milwaukee, after living in New York City for thirty years. When she arrived, prostitutes roamed the streets, drivers cruised in search of drugs, and gunshots were heard almost every day. Sharon was actually advised by several police captains not to go outside, even during the day. 

However, she wasn’t afraid and started taking walks in the neighborhood. Gradually, Sharon was joined by others who told her they were sometimes hesitant even to go out and retrieve the mail. Then she met Larry Adams, a contractor she hired to fix the wiring in her house. After the job was done, he asked Sharon out for ice cream. Within a year they were married.

BEATING CANCER

positive thinking sign shows optimism or belief MJt83NDu 1

According to an article in Best Life, scientific evidence indicates that one tiny change could help people improve cancer outcomes. Even though we know that how one feels mentally can have a strong impact on how one feels physically, when it comes to a disease as serious as cancer, we tend to think of it as something that only medicine could possibly treat. However, a new paper published in the journal Trends in Cancer reports that empowering patients to change their mindset about their diagnosis could help them get better care.

AMAZING FEAT OF A TEENAGER

Blog76A

Recently, Swedish teen and climate activist Greta Thunberg crossed the Atlantic Ocean on a zero-emissions sailboat to attend the 2019 UN Climate Summit being held in New York City. According to the New York Associated Press, as the social-media-savvy teenager approached New York Harbor, she tweeted, "Land!" Greta refused to fly because of the carbon cost of plane travel. A 2018 study indicated that because of cloud and ozone formation, air travel may trap two to four times more heat than caused by emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. In contrast, the onboard electronics of the sailboat Greta traveled on were powered by solar panels and underwater turbines. Inscribed on the boat’s sail are the words: UNITE BEHIND THE SCIENCE.

PILOT HONORS HIS FATHER

DM 03242016 1113

A current USA Today article describes how Roy Wright, an Air Force Major, left Dallas, Texas, for Vietnam fifty-two years ago. On the day he left, his five-year-old son Bryan went to Dallas Love Field to see his father off. Roy was later shot down while attacking a target on the Ho Chi Minh trail in Laos, on May 19, 1967. He was leading a flight of two aircraft, and no parachute was observed prior to the crash, or as it crashed and burst into flames. Even though search and rescue efforts were initiated and organized, an actual search could not be conducted due to the intensity of hostile ground fire in the area.
