General Discussion / What is your definition of leadership

What is your definition of leadership?  Also, describe your personal belief about effective leadership.

General Discussion / Hot Topic: Abortion
« on: May 17, 2019, 02:36:31 PM »
Let me first begin by saying that I believe it is not our place to tell others that their beliefs are wrong.  Everyone has a right to their beliefs, views, and opinions, even if others think those beliefs, views, and opinions are wrong.

With that said, when it comes to abortion, I can see the argument from both sides, and I believe each side is sincere in their position to support or not support abortion.  There are strong opinions on both sides, and I don't think either side can be persuaded when it comes to abortion. 

However, personally, when it comes to abortion, it is not so much that I am for killing an unborn baby.  I just believe that everyone has a right to personal autonomy.  Everyone should get to decide what happens to their body.

There will be those that say, "Then an unborn baby has the right to choose life over death because a baby is a person from the point of conception."  I understand this viewpoint, I truly do.  But my thoughts are that an unborn baby does not have the capacity to make that decision for itself.  The woman gets to make the decision because the baby is inside HER body.

The baby may be a soul from the moment of fertilization but the babyís right to life does not override the motherís right to control her body.

We each own and control our bodies and no one should decide what we do with our bodies but each of us individually.  If a woman decides that she wants to carry a baby to term or does not want to, it must be HER  choice.

A stranger should not have the right to decide for a woman what she does with her body.

I just wanted to share my thoughts.  Feel free to give your thoughts on this topic.

I am a huge fan of Dan Rather.  I've always liked him as a News Reporter but in today's times, I find his voice, his thoughts, his insights, and his wisdom to be so incredibly refreshing.  He captures the spirit of what's going on in our times in such eloquent, accurate, perceptive, and profound ways.  His words are like poetry and yet, so deep, so thought-provoking, and so invaluable.

General Discussion / PH Veterans!
« on: May 10, 2019, 06:08:57 PM »
I don't know how many veterans will be reading this... but I just wanted to say that...  I miss everybody! 

I know how busy life is!  We're all a little older now and everyone is going about their lives! Well, ME TOO!!!  BUT, I miss the good old days.  I LOVED the exchanges... everyone had their own sense of humor... everyone had something different to say and to teach...  I was always learning and feeling intrigued by what we were each saying.  But more importantly, I was always stimulated and LAUGHING when I was on PH!  FUN TIMES! 

My Hmong brothers and sisters (and Laotian and Vietnamese friends), I just want to say that I appreciate you all and all that you have shared on here!

If it's not too much to ask, come back and share what you've been up to.  What you've learned about life.  What you think about life now.  Etc.  :)

I HOPE you all have been well and are doing great!

Your friend,

Human Emotions
By Lilly

There are times when you just have no words to describe all that you're feeling. 

Sometimes the human condition just seems all so overwhelming. 

Sometimes you just want to shout from the mountaintop,
And let the world know your joy!

Other times the fragility of life,
The suffering you see,
The tears you cry,
Make you wonder,
What is the point of everything.

How To Be A Positive Contributing Member of Society
By Lilly

Remember how you learned in school?  By listening to your teachers and absorbing the information given about different subjects. You grew a lot and gained a lot of knowledge by the time that you graduated High School or college, right?  That's because you listened to the things being taught and to the lectures that your instructors gave with an open mind.  Often, you respectfully participated in discussions in class and listened to other students and your teachers' viewpoints.  Then, only after listening and absorbing all the viewpoints, you'd come to your own interpretation s and conclusions, or, you'd accept what was said by others as fact. 

However, in the everyday world, I've noticed that many people hold fast to their own beliefs and viewpoints.  There is no room to be open minded to listening to other people's viewpoints at all.  This leads to a stonewall in progress and the slow ability for society to resolve the problems and issues that affect us all.

I believe that how you see the world is a culmination of your upbringing, education, and experiences.  But a lot of times how you see the world is perspective and having the humility to accept that you could be wrong in your views and beliefs.  Being closed-minded makes you unable to learn and grow as a person.  When it comes to social and political issues, being closed-minded prevents being able to solve problems in a way that is effective and fair to everyone.  However, if we can open up to the possibility that we could be wrong, and listen with an open mind to each other, effective communication and progress can be achieved.  Growing as a person and being an effective agent of change and progress depends on your ability to listen to others and then continuously adjusting your viewpoints and understanding about the world.

Poetic Souls / Ode to Mcdreamy

Ode to Mcdreamy

You're my demon;
This ache that won't go away;
I wish it were air and dissipate.

For so long I yearned for you;
I dreamed you a thousand times,
Wishing I could breathe you into life.

Then one day,
A mix of Hmong,
A mix of English;
Your arrow shot into my heart,
Catching me off guard;
You came in like a wrecking ball,
Got me feeling so dizzy,
I started to fall.

Are you a phantom or are you real, Mcdreamy;
Giving me a taste,
Of the things I've felt,
That I've experienced only in sleep.

General Discussion / Adoption
« on: December 19, 2018, 11:35:58 AM »
What are your thoughts on adoption? 
1. Would you be open to adopting? 
2. If you are not open to adopting, why?
3. If you are open to adopting, what age group would you want to adopt from?  For example, babies/toddlers, 5-10 year-olds, 10-14 year-olds, or 14-17 year-olds?
4. Would you want to adopt a boy or a girl, and why?
5. Would you stick to the same race as you or would you be OK adopting another race?
6. Do have any concerns for the adopted child?  For example, do you feel like they wouldn't love you like your own flesh and blood would?  Etc?

General Discussion / What qualities do you look for in a significant other?
« on: December 17, 2018, 11:28:54 AM »
Way back when we didn't know any better, we may have thought we didn't want anyone who looked less than a model.  But now that we are all a little older and wiser, what are the must have qualities that you look for in a significant other?

Another way to ask the question is, if you're just starting to get to know a guy or a girl, what are the "turn off" signs or "turn on" signs that you look for?
