The video I just watched called "Embrace the Shake" by Phil Hansen talks about his passion for art until his hands start shaking preventing him from doing the art he loves. His doctor diagnosed it as permanent never damaged and simply told Phil to just imbrace it.

1. What is the speaker's purpose? Iyanla Vanzant and Oprah Winfrey discuss why women today mistreat each other. They both address the 4 weapons women use to hurt each other. 1st weapon: Betrayal, (our confidance in each other, whatever secrets we have told to each other, we tell other people. Especially when it is not our place to.) 2nd weapon: Gossip, (having third party conversations, talking behind your back about what's wrong with you, instead of just addressing it directly to you.) 3rd weapon: Lie, (we lie on each other and to each other)

Hi Sherifs,
First let me thank you for reading my post. President Obama speaks effortlessly in his speeches and this one honoring Cory Remsburg was no different. I wish to one have such a command when I speak publicly.

I applaud Cory Remsburg. He has the heart of an angel. He loves his country selflessly. To be honest, I would wish to serve again after such experience. I am happy that he has such a big heart.
May God bless him.

Hi VanessaPace,
Thank you reading my post. Until now, I was unaware that anyone in the rival party would be for immigration reform. I am happy that you shared this link.
Thanks

It was quite interesting to hear views from the opposing party. I guess I went into the Democrats that they are serving now.
Thank you.

You never know until you know. I was not aware of this speech, it is appreciated. What most people fail to understand and in most cases refuses to accept is that "we" want what is best for our children. That means many immigrants from all over might come here open small businesses but still encourage their children to get an education. For Americans this country is just a country, for immigrants they see this country as a place to make their dreams come through.
