Larissa Martinez in her Valedictorian in Graduation Speech: I’m Undocumented

Valedictorian Larissa Martinez said in her graduation speech: “I’m undocumented”

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/10/us/texas-undocumented-valedictorian-trnd/index.html

You have to read what this very brave young lady said as Valedictorian at her graduation. Her courageous speech surprised everyone, and she was bright in saving her secret for a “punch line “at the end of her speech.

America was founded on the principles that all people have the same rights.

She made a factual statement about Trump, about “his wall built on hatred”… and I give her a standing ovation for that one.

I personally feel Trump should be thrown out of the political race based on his racist, anti-American view points and his repeat, tasteless racial generalizations.

I cannot believe how easily and quickly I made friends with Larissa Martinez on Facebook after searching for her.

We talked back and forth using the Instant messaging app and over 80,000 were searching to find her or talking about her there.

I wrote this on her profile page, and I’m pleased with the words I wrote so I share it with you here.

“CONGRATULATIONS for your excellence in your academics and also in your bravery to stand up and disclose that our immigration system I’d broken and also about saying that Trump us building a walk out of hatred. You are so astute and you are going to go far in this world. You already have! I am so happy we became friends so quickly here. If you should ever want to make your opinions heard on a wide scale, my blog Totally Inspired Mind has a wide readership, and you can send me your story and I will air it to 100 countries. I have a loudspeaker to the world.

God bless you Larissa Martinez. You are one extraordinary young lady!

I am happy I tuned on to CNN this morning and read your story!”-

Wonder by R.J. Palacios

20140413-201756.jpg

I was browsing the bestsellers at Barnes & Noble… (One of my favorite past times).

I spotted “Wonder” by R.j. Palacio’s award winning first attempt at a fiction novel, which turned out to be fabulous. The more I read about what the book is about, the more I wanted to read.

It is a story of courage about a young boy with a facial deformity who longs to be treated like the other kids and who longs to be accepted for who he is inside.

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry…

“Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else’s opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.” – Oscar Wilde

Oscar Wilde’s words made me think here and then re-think what exactly he meant.

In my opinion what he is saying is:

We imitate way too often in life. From the thoughts we think to the opinions we claim are our own. Many are afraid to say anything out of the ordinary, even if they might be totally right and have valid points to make.

I think the most boring people around and also the most annoying are those who won’t state their opinion about anything. They fear someone will disagree with them so they say nothing at all.

Even worse is the person who could have turned in the cell phone they found in a bathroom stall so the rightful owner could have a chance at cleaiming their world and contacts and information contained therin. (I mention that specific example because I turned one in last night when I found in sitting in the bathroom.) The opportunities are all over though to make that difference, if you only feel like it.

When was the last time you stood up for a cause you felt strongly about?

Sign a petition on Care.org and become involved with making a difference in the world, one signature at a time.

I know everybody speaks of how many followers one has on Twitter or Face Book or other networking sites. When was the last time you thought of “where you are leading people to”?

When Oscar Wilde said their lives are a mimicry, it is because few set the pace for others or are TREND SETTERS….showing the way to better or newer ways of doing things or thinking.

By saying “their passions are a quotation” I think Oscar Wilde meant instead of us making the most out of what are strenths and passions are enabling us to be quoted one day, we “retweet” other’s words instead of writing or creating something with the intent for it to have lasting longevity.

I hope this made you think in new and enlightening ways.

If it did, I did my job as a writer.

What book or film impacted your life or altered how you see the world? What art left a lasting imprint on your soul?

I found a great post on Word Press that asked his reader this telling question so I thought I would ask the readers of Totally Inspired Mind.

What book impacted your life in a good way that has left a lasting imprint on your soul?

Share the book title with the readers on the site here.

My answer:

I read Helen Keller’s biography when I was a kid in 5th grade and shared it with my friend Cheryle Lightcap, who was blind and sat in the back of the class with her countless books in braille. After seeing what Helen Keller did and was blind and deaf, with the help of Anne Sullivan, I knew I could do anything I would set my mind to do in life. What I was diagnosed with, epilepsy, even though not well controlled, seemed like nothing by comparison.

Helen Keller is to this day my heroine and if you read her essay called “Optimism” you will see just what a genius she was and it is so incredible because she wrote as though she could see and spoke of topics like philosophy, religion, and politics.

Read any of Helen Keller’s books. She didn’t just write one, but over 20! You can find them all by searching her name in the books section on Amazon and also talking to a good librarian. Her book Mid Life was written later in her life. Even in her late years, she referred to Anne Sullivan as her “teacher”.

My mother was always my “Anne Sullivan” to me instilling values, and integrity and my belief system as well as fostering every talent I possess. The best I am I owe to her.
I hope others write and tell what books made an impression on them as I did here.

Keep Youth Inside Your Pocket Like You’re Holding Tinkerbell

Fanciful Displays at the Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Keep Youth Inside You Like You Are Holding Tinker Bell

The photo here was taken at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada nearly two years ago come August. It doesn’t feel like it, but I remember how in awe I was when I walked in and saw the beautiful displays they created there. It was worth the work they put into it setting it up. The designers, artists and many talented people accomplished their main objective of putting a warm and magical kind of feeling inside everyone’s heart and putting smiles on everybody’s faces who saw it all.

I am sure we all remember the movie Robin Hood and how Tinkerbell flew around with her iridescent wings and that sparkling wand of hers. Always keep the joy inside you, the laughter and that special “spark” because it keeps you young. Don’t listen to what others say about “acting your age”, unless you are 80 wearing a mini skirt! Do what you know makes you happy and keep the joy alive. When you do it, it is contagious and it affects everything you do.

I know I am still a kid inside but my intelligence tells me I am far from one. The great thing about life is to take the wonder, the joy and the awe of when you were a child and carry it around with you like Tinkerbell in your pocket. Never lose sight of it, and hold on to it dear because as long as you possess a zeal and passion for living, you will never truly age.

Take to living and life a youthful attitude and don’t ever let yourself grow old in your mind. That is where youth truly resides. It isn’t about age or how many years you are on this earth. It is about what you bring to life, how much you “jazz it up” and give it a special sparkle when you want into a room. When you love what you are doing it rubs off on others. Be around people who are contributing something wonderful to the world, and so it will rub off on you. Associate with believers, doers, achievers and creators. People who do things nobody has ever done before-because they can and they have something to say. Associate with people who want to leave behind a legacy and help others. Those who want to right the wrongs in life for others or fix the state of affairs so everyone can life a better life.

Those kinds of things make me have joy and I love people who think in that way. Life will never be dull or boring when you surround yourself with the topics and people you love most. If you don’t know what those things are, devote some time thinking about it.

When you do that, it has the fringe benefit of automatically attracting those who are creative and people to your being and your persona. Who you are will attract the right people to you when you are true to yourself and follow your dreams and learn everything you can about being successful in the topic you desire and you have natural talent in.
Keep doing what you love and don’t retire because you will always learn, be around people and your life will never be dull.-
