In case you missed this episode of America’s Got Talent. Anna Clenending, who struggles with anxiety and depression, gets up in front of thousands of people to blow their minds with her musical talents.
We recently came across a really cool campaign launched in Philadelphia, PA called I Will Listen. The city is urging its inhabitants to simply pledge to listen, without judgment or bias, to the one in four residents living with mental illnesses. “Through listening, you are creating a safe space in your community in which friends and family actually feel comfortable to approach you about an issue they may have.”
Three cheers for Julia Schliesing who breaks every stereotype of a Pageant Queen. So for those of you who think pageant queens are superficial, when it comes to Julia you could not be further from the truth. Julia and I had a chance to meet at a radio interview we did for KUMD. She is a wonderful young woman; poised and passionate, committed and courageous, forthright and funny, intelligent and inspirational. I am honored to have met her.
