POSITRACTION: Different genders, different races, different generations, and the best of friends



Father Thanks Stranger for Entertaining His Daughter in the Airport: ‘This is the world I want for her’
By Good News Network-Feb 6, 2019

*** begin quote ***

One man’s heartwarming new friendship with a 16-month-old girl is proving that friendship has no boundaries.

Former US Marine Kevin Armentrout had been waiting to catch a plane from Las Vegas to San Diego with his daughter Carter earlier this week when she started befriending their fellow passengers in the airport.

“[Carter] was being her usual inquisitive self, wanting to meet and say ‘hi’ to everyone she could, until she walked up on this man,” Armentrout wrote in a Facebook post about the encounter. “He reached out and asked if she wanted to sit with him.”

For the next 45 minutes, the man – who was identified only as a Samsung sales manager from Oklahoma named Joseph – taught Carter how to draw pictures on his tablet; watched cartoons with her; and even accepted her generous offer to share her snacks.

“Watching them in that moment, I couldn’t help but think, different genders, different races, different generations, and the best of friends. This is the world I want for her,” wrote Armentrout.

This is the world I’d like to be in.

How do we get there?

Change everyone’s hearts!

JLINKEDIN: Teran, Regina [MC1988] Scrum Master @ IBM



Teran, Regina [MC1988]
Project Manager Scrum Master at IBM
Greater New York City Area

I love learning and producing results! I'm a curious person and enjoy asking questions of experts to expand my knowledge, act on what I've learned, and teach others. My core belief is that if you lead by example, people will follow. For me, the perfect environment is one where I'm challenged, I'm providing value to the customer, the project has a creative component (such as documenting a complex topic in an easy to understand picture or automating solutions), management is engaged, team members respect and support each other, and members are positive and can laugh at themselves.

ENDNOTE: Why open this for a public vote and then ignore the results?



Catholics blast Chirlane McCray over city statue snub
By Sara Dorn August 17, 2019 | 9:29pm

*** begin quote ***

The faithful raised holy hell this week after The Post reported the first lady’s “She Built NYC” program for statues honoring exceptional women rejected the public’s choice of iconic sister Frances Xavier Cabrini.

Cabrini, the first American saint, devoted her life to helping the needy in the late 1800s but got passed over despite receiving 219 votes, more than any other nominee.

Councilman Justin Brannan fired off an angry letter to McCray’s office on Monday this week, saying, “Mother Frances Xavier Cabrini, who received more nominations from New Yorkers than any other woman during the process, has been completely ignored.”

“My simple question is this: why open this for a public vote and then ignore the results?” the councilman asked.
