On the Dawn Of a New Week: A "View of the Week"

A new week has dawned here in "Outsiders".    It has been an interesting week in terms of the on-going political events as the mid-terms are beginning in earnest in the United States and the World is ever so challenging.   The front page of today's Wall Street Journal depicting the two Kurdish Children as refugees underscores the continued plight the World is facing today.

As deliberations are at hand here in "Outsiders" on the US Political Scene, the aftermath of Scotland, the challenges in Europe & the broader challenge of climate change, the day here started on such a high note as #Bing featured one of the most beautiful of home pages which we here @ "outsiders" tweeted out earlier this morning.     On the eve of the UN General Assembly,  it was quite timely especially as the World had a World-Wide Day of Action including one in New York City spearheaded by Al Gore, the Mayor of New York City, the Foreign Minister of France and the Activist Jane Goodall.   

What is ever so clear as one assesses the World to remember to embrace this--and never succumb to the conventional so that one can be the change to help transform the World--the essence of why "outsiders" has been launched:





Every human has four endowments:
self awareness, conscience, independent will and creative imagination.
These give us the ultimate human freedom...
The power to choose, to respond, to change.
- Stephen Covey


When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves
and our own self-preservation,
we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.
- Joseph Campbell
