A quick hello and round up of EXCELLENCE from the web, and then I am off to celebrate the weekend. Enjoy…
First, this PSA from my friend April Fiet:
I usually close the pick of the clicks with a link to whatever was the most read on my blog this week, but this week I’m starting with my favorite link for the week – an artistic rendering from Corrie Haffly based on this week’s 5-day #ACourageousOne series. Corrie took a quote from each of this week’s posts about trafficking, and turned them into haunting, beautiful images. Whether you read none, one, or all of this week’s posts – take a look at Corrie’s gallery on Sex Trafficking Awareness as part of her NaNoDrawMo project (and share it!)
Other links I loved this week:
- For anyone who is confused about Net Neutrality, let The Oatmeal make it really, really clear: Dear Senator Ted Cruz, I’m going to explain net neutrality to you. Brilliant, as usual.
For anyone wondering how to talk to their teenage boys about Kim Kardashian’s naked pictures, you can’t do better than this from Brian Orme.
For anyone with a smidgen of a sense of humor, Mallory Ortberg’s list of Bible Verses where ‘Philistines’ are replaced with ‘Haters’ is awesome. And also, very true of haters.
For anyone who has ever been frustrated by the duplicity in Christian dialog, Jonathan Merritt knocked it out of the park here: World Magazine column demonstrates evangelicals’ double standard.
For anyone who is confused by (or frustrated by) the use of apostrophes on Christmas Cards, read this hilarious and helpful piece by Kate Brannen: How to Make Your Last Name Plural This Christmas Season. Please, don’t hurt Tiny Tim.
For parents who need a precious sense of perspective on how they are spending their time and investing in their kids: How 936 Pennies Will Forever Change Your Life from Eryn Lynum. So inspirational.
I am generally not a fan of closed captioning, but this music video is arguably the funniest I’ve ever come across:
And this little gem of a video has Grover of Sesame Street learning about Autism from a sweet big sister:
That’s all for this week. What caught your eye? What did you write or unearth which deserves to be shared? Leave a comment below!
