Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain June 5 to June 11, 2022


Every day there is something to learn here at ActiveRain.  With this series, I try to highlight posts that gave me that lightbulb moment. It could be something techie, something about Real Estate or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!


JimJune 5:  Jim Paulson     “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness”

What an interesting post from Jim. Understanding how we are alike and celebrating our differences…we need more of that. 


NickJune 8: Nick Vandekar Ole Glory Coast to Coast-An ActiveRain Contest

I love Nick's perspective of our flag flying from someone who was not born here. I appreciate what he wrote...Thank you, Nick.

What a cute post. And...after I read it, I had to check our birdbath to make sure that I didn't drown any bees.


LeanneJune 10: Leanne Smith Freya's Day-One Small act of Kindness

I don't think it can be said enough...each of us can make a difference.
