Dear Santa: It’s Been a Long Time

2020-05-30T16:36:24+00:00

Dear Santa, Boy, I'll bet this one caught you off guard. How long has it been? Honestly, I can't remember. The other day, a thought popped into my head and I tried, really hard, to recall how old I was the last time I sent you a letter. Maybe I was 6, or 7, maybe [...]

The generalization of all men condoning sexual assault must stop. Now.

2020-05-30T16:37:26+00:00

At first, I thought it was an overreaction. Then, it happened to me. I can, therefore, no longer stay silent. There is a dangerous wave sweeping America at the moment. It's been building in strength for some time, and has finally washed ashore, seemingly taking it with it a common sense and ability to parse [...]

What will you do, when someone finds you?

2020-05-30T16:37:42+00:00

What would you do, if a rabbit found you?   I've asked myself that question now for 2 years. Because in all the uproar, the fighting, the spit, the venom, the discourse, the losses and mind pounding stress of these last 2 years, I come to this day in the hope of answering that question [...]

Has the World Become too Distracted for Real Heroes?

2020-05-30T16:38:21+00:00

Since I can remember, I have always been one who reads a little deeper into words and comments. I have always sought the true meaning behind speeches, offhand quips, novels, or just a short conversation between people at the bar. I have no idea where it came from. I wasn't raised in an environment [...]

Ageism: Making Experience & Desire Disposable

2020-05-30T16:38:38+00:00

When we're young, all roads are open to us. We are, if lucky, encouraged to seek every avenue, try every gamble, become part of something. We are valued, and always considered to be full of possibilities.   When we're older, those roads are closed to us because of years. We are far too often discouraged [...]

No arms? No problem. Meet Kendrell Daniels.

2020-05-30T17:48:26+00:00

Before digging too deep into this story, let's all admit we have, at one time or another, complained that things in life suck out loud and we deserve better. We have all felt as if there are forces against us, or failing to allow us to move ahead. My hand goes up first, so as [...]

When did we lose our sense of humor & sarcasm?

2020-05-30T17:49:04+00:00

I remember the first time I saw Zero Mostel and Gene Wilder in this scene from "The Producers". I remember how hard I laughed. I remember how absurd it was and taking not a second to understand the message that was being sent. I remember not being offended in the least, despite being a child [...]

America, where have all the “White Hats” gone?

2020-05-30T18:02:41+00:00

A simple horse opera. A sense of honor. A reminder of what we once were, and sometimes, it seems, can only dream of being again. I’m a fan of western movies, period pieces that take us back to what we always believe was a simple and cleaner time. In effect, that west of the North [...]

Uncovering the “Human” in Human Resources

2020-05-30T18:31:33+00:00

It has been my experience that far too often, Human Resources has been relegated to dealing with three specific areas of concern, none of which allow the dedicated professional to utilize their skill set to it's maximum.

“Like a Rock”: The small moments finding inspiration

2020-05-30T18:33:45+00:00

SIGN UP HERE FOR EMAIL DELIVERY OF ED BERLINER'S COMMENTARY THE POWER OF MUSIC TO INSPIRE "Like a Rock" to many is nothing more than the background music for a Chevy Trucks commercial. But those who find inspiration in music make it so much more than an advertising anthem.   I admit to wishing I [...]
