Jonathan Greenblatt Kudos

Person of the week thanks to a story I just read on Business Insider is Jonathan Greenblatt. Greenblatt is the Jewish director of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which campaigns against anti-Semitism and other bigotry which is nice to see how passionate our country is to ensure that we stand up and fight for equality for all citizens. 

Given the history of the Jewish people and how we are educated to remember these very strong words "Never Again" it's important to protect and acknowledge others in the world regardless of their faith or background. Greenblatt said if a registration of Muslims was created that he would register himself in that database.

Thanks to the publicity regarding this subject the ADL has seen a rise in donations. If you feel strongly about fighting Bigotry and Anti-Semitism and want to bring equal justice for all then visit: The ADL's Website here

"So much to do.
  So much ADL can do.
  So much it MUST do!

 Your gift will allow us to:

  • Monitor hate groups
  • Fight bigotry in the courts
  • Pass laws that bring equal justice for all
  • Educate the next generation to reject bias and bullying"

One reason why people don’t like failure is because it’s embarrassing, Bezos added. He described a toddler trying to put a square peg in a round hole for hours, without success. But it doesn’t keep them from trying and trying. That’s how they learn.

“We all have that when we are little, but as we get older, somehow it’s not as cool to fail,”
