  1. Valerie Montgomery Rice:

    We were doing this so that people have confidence, i think we have shown that there may have been some hesitancy, but we are clearly, based on the lines you're seeing, moving to vaccine acceptance.

  2. Rainer Maria Rilke:

    Physical pleasure is a sensual experience no different from pure seeing or the pure sensation with which a fine fruit fills the tongue; it is a great unending experience, which is given us, a knowing of the world, the fullness and the glory of all knowing. And not our acceptance of it is bad; the bad thing is that most people misuse and squander this experience and apply it as a stimulant at the tired spots of their lives and as distraction instead of a rallying toward exalted moments.

  3. Tom Jackson:

    However, the general social acceptance of hate and violence toward any and all law enforcement recently has created such an unpredictable and uncontrollable threat to our lives, many feel it is not a good career to be involved in. Statistics show the number of police officers feloniously killed in the line of duty had been on a downward trajectory since 1970. This year, cop deaths are up more than 50 percent, and the victims in Dallas, Baton Rouge and other cases were targeted for assassination rather than killed in the process of confronting dangerous criminals. According to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund, the number of officers fatally shot is already up 56 percent compared with last year. One person who is all too familiar with race-related riots and police problems is Tom Jackson, former police chief in Ferguson, Mo. The shooting of cops is going to hurt recruitment badly, how can you convince people to come to the profession, or stay in the profession, when hundreds of people are in front of them threatening to rape their grandkids ? Now officers' spouses and children are seeing cops going down and they are begging their loved ones to get out of the force or not sign up as planned, added Tom Jackson, who retired in March, 2015. According to Tom Jackson, Tom Jackson former department is still rocked by the heavy riots and remains 17 officers short – dropping from a full strength of 55 in Tom Jackson time to 38 now.

    Where the two old parties offer fear, mutual slander and individual self-destruction, Libertarians share our commitment to rigorous financial integrity, peaceful social acceptance and individual personal liberty, now is the time to vote out of love for the principles you know to be true : free agency, self-ownership, non-initiation of aggression and not in reaction to what you fear.

  5. Victor Casale:

    I have spent my life trying to create truly global shade palettes because I know what its like to be with a person who has finally found their exact match. They feel included and recognized, and I am hoping every child who uses these crayons and finds their shade will have that feeling, with the world growing more diverse than ever before, Crayola hopes our new Colors of the World crayons will increase representation and foster a greater sense of belonging and acceptance.
