Your Human Résumé Challenge

So I continue to see doom and gloom in the news.  The world is ending.  Say goodbye to your loved ones………………Yadda, Yadda, Yadda.  Our biggest problem, as I see it, is we continue to seek ways in which to differentiate ourselves from each other.  Nowhere else, as much as here in America.  We use race, gender, religion, political party, state, income, you name it, to make us stand apart from each other.  So instead of looking for solutions we seem to look for problems.


I went to school originally to teach history.  And history has told me that since we began this experiment known as humanity, we have been in the last days. Meaning, that our earliest records seem to indicate that we live in impending doom.  So instead of dwelling on what is wrong, how the world will end and how terrible everyone and everything is.  I wanted to encourage some positive thinking.


Below I am going to include my resume for entry in to humanity. I am asking anyone who reads this to

A. Share it with someone else.

B. Write your own human resume

C. Tag me or send me a link so I can read your resume.
