World Kindness USA (WKUSA) is launching on the back of a 20-year international campaign, which has, over the last five years seen national kindness bodies established in the Australia, UK, Europe, Africa, Asia, and now… the USA!  WKUSA is designed to bring people from diverse backgrounds together to unite as a nation, on the platform of kindness… regardless of politics, race, religion, gender, sexual preference, age and even zip codes, all set in the belief we deserve to see a kinder world in our lifetime.

We believe this movement can enhance dementia care greatly while improving communities and society.  Listen or watch the video interview and get motivated by Michael who was just honored with the title of the “Most Inspiring Man.”

Honoring All Mother’s on this Very Special Day

 

Cheers to all the women who have taken the time to be there when we needed them most!

Mother’s Day has always been a day of deep reflection for me.  Even before my Mother passed away in 2014, I had such great appreciation for all she gave not only me but any child or adult in need of love or support.  My mom was a very loving and compassionate person, one I can only hope to be like.

Years after graduating I was told by many friends, that they wished my parents were theirs.  I know now, when I was younger many of my friends hid what their lives were really like.  They experienced things like abuse and neglect that I can honestly say, never even crossed my mind.  I didn’t know they existed. Boy, how lucky was I! It makes me wonder if I was really that naïve or if things just weren’t talked openly back than. Either way, all I know is that my Mother, like many women made a difference not only in the lives of their own children, but many people in need.  Maybe they adopted a child or helped care for a child.     Maybe they recognized a person in need and made time to be there. Most all of us have experienced a time in our lives when we didn’t want to be alone, when we needed someone to hear us, validate our feeling or give us counsel.  Most of us were lucky to have a woman step up and be a Mother to us catching us when we were falling.

Mother’s are a gift and should be treated as such. 

Below is a short video when my mom was in her end stages of Alzheimer’s.  To this day it puts a smile on my face to see her joyful.  You may miss it, if your looing for someone to be in the perfect outfit and makeup… but I can’t watch this video or many others on my YouTube channel with out picking up on all the non verbal ways she is communicating joy – smile, dimples, tapping toes and hands, squinting eyes and of course her adorable laugh.  May you enjoy watching mom listen and at times sing with musician Barbara Lee Friedman.

Today, I am lucky to have a daughter.  A daughter who loves her children and puts them first and foremost in her life.  It brings me great pleasure to watch her in action with her girls.

Blessings To All Women To All Mothers

Dementia – What did you say?

 

Enjoy another poem by one of our members.  This poem is written by a 15 year old.   Thank you Ari for sharing your thoughts and feelings with us.

What did you say? 

By : Ari Kempner Age 15

Wait what did you say? Oh yes, I remember now.
Where are we going again? Oh, I see now.
What’s your name? Oh yea, you are my granddaughter.

Five years ago, she walked this world knowing all,
She talked in conversations confident and standing tall. 

Smiled bright and always with a colored pencil in her hand, 

She would even come to play with me in the sand.

We could play and play cards for hours,

From the dark dark night at one am to afternoon spring showers.

But now she wanders till she is directed,
She follows him because they are so connected.

Yes, he is my grandpa her best friend since day one,
He takes care of her and his day is never done.
What I try do is be there for my mom,
She is always there for me to keep me cool and calm.

On the outside she handles this as cool as ice,
But on the inside I think she really feels like she is paying the price.
She cries in secret and I know feels sad,
I mean why wouldn’t she, she has to watch her mom deteriorate and become mad.

She never grew up the way I did,

She wasn’t as close with her family when she was a kid.
Walking through this world day by day,
Now of days she has nothing left to say.

Wait what did you say? I can’t remember
Where are we going again? I can’t remember.
What’s your name? I can’t remember.
She will soon be gone, but not quite yet,
But little does she know she is mentally gone already and making us fret. 

So here is to the days that you are still alive,
But when you leave us, I know your soul and arts will continue to thrive.

Thank You Healthline and All of Our Followers!
