Are You Stale?

Are You Stale?

 

Have you ever bitten into something that’s stale? There is nothing worse than having your mouth set on eating a chip, a cracker, a fry, or a piece of bread, only to realize that it has become stale, flavorless and cold.

Believe it or not, it happens like that in life, too. We get so caught up in trying to balance career, family and finances that we don’t realize we’ve evolved into a “flavorless” existence. Think about it, prior to adult responsibilities, we had hunger and ambition. We had zeal and imagination that dared us to be greater than people’s expectations… even our own. We had dreams of entrepreneurship, writing books, starting non-profits, singing, acting, etc… but where did they go? Have our fresh ideas, thoughts and desires become so stale that they’re lost for good?

People urged not to shop, work to protest Ga. law

People urged not to shop, work to protest Ga. law

ATLANTA (AP) -- As many parts of Georgia's law cracking down on illegal immigration take effect, a Latino community group is organizing "a day without immigrants" to protest the measure.

The Georgia Latino Alliance for Human Rights is calling for a day of non-compliance, asking businesses to close and community members to stay home and not work or shop Friday.

Alan Conner, owner of Dakota Blue restaurant in Grant Park, said he thinks the law is unjust and planned to close for lunch Friday in solidarity.

But some urge caution. Jerry Gonzalez, executive director of the Georgia Association of Latino Elected Officials, says skipping work without authorization could cost people jobs in a tough economic climate.

Groups are also organizing a "march for justice" on Saturday at the state Capitol to protest the law.
