Drake is making it rain in Miami by donating A LOT of money
February 8th, 2018 under Admirable People, Degrassi, Drake. [ Comments: none ]

Miami is a magical place that you cannot help to fall in love with when you visit. Drake has been filming a music video there and he loves it so much that he throwing his money all over the place. Not on himself, but on other people.

According to WPLG, it started on Monday at Miami Senior High School where he was filming his video. He not only gave the school $25,000, he is designing the school’s uniform next year and giving them to the students for free. After that, he graduated to my alma mater, University of Miami, and gave one student at the music school a $50,000 scholarship. The next day, he went in the Lotus House homeless shelter for around 260 women and children and gave them a $50,000 donation. People reports that he gave all of the moms $150 gift cards to Target and the kids got toys and games. He made one more stop on his donating spree and that was to a supermarket on Miami Beach. He grabbed the megaphone and told all the shoppers he was paying for their groceries. The bill reportedly came out to around $50,000.

Drake has not said why he so generously gave away around $200,000 in 2 days, but who cares. If you see him, shake his hand because we need more celebrities like him. That and if he says he wants to shoot something in your town, welcome him with open arms.

BTW I wonder how The Rock feels about being one upped on the niceness in his hometown and at our college. DJ, time to match him!


Mister Rogers is getting a stamp!
December 13th, 2017 under Admirable People. [ Comments: 1 ]

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of Mister Roger’s Neighborhood debut and the United States Post Office is honoring the children’s TV host with a stamp of his own. While Fred Rogers will be on the stamp with one of his puppets, it seems weird that Mr. McFeely, the delivery man, is not on there with him. You would think that postmen would fight for that?

Mister Rogers is not the only famous person getting a forever stamp in 2018, Jazz legend Lena Horne and Sally Ride, the first female astronaut to go into space, will also be on the corner of an envelope next year. And I will be at the post office picking them up.


Time Magazine got the People of the Year right! #MeToo
December 6th, 2017 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

If 2017 can be remembered for anything, it needs to be remembered as the year that sexual assault victims found their voice and used it take on their abusers.

For centuries assaulters got away with attacking and demeaning their victims because they were in a power position. Not anymore. We are mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore. We are screaming “#MeToo” from rooftops all over the world and the world is finally listening. It is such a powerful movement that Time Magazine is honoring it as their People of the Year. I know they say Person, but it is us people who are making it happen. We are doing this so future generations will not have to go through with what we went through. To live with the mental scars that never go away. That make me cry as I type this because there is still one story I cannot talk about and it happened to me when I was just 17. I will tell you I went to the police and they did nothing. They were upset I wasted their time and they knew and respected my mom and still treated us that way. I don’t want anyone to live with a scar like that. I want the police to listen. I want the bosses to listen. I want everyone to listen. And I want them to BELIEVE us. Is that asking for too much?

By Time recognizing #MeToo aka the Silence Breakers, it solidifying the historic moment for future generations to. We will forget about the President, but we will always remember 2017 as the year that we said no more! You can not use power to harass me any more. In the words of Twisted Sister, “We’re not gonna take it anymore!”


The Rock reminds us that there a lot of good celebrities out there too!
November 19th, 2017 under Admirable People, The Rock. [ Comments: none ]

A post shared by therock (@therock) on

In an era where every day a celebrity is in the press for doing something repugnant, it is nice to know there are still good guys out there. Like The Rock who flew a teenage out fan, who is on hospice, out to meet him. Not only did the teen meet his idol, DJ also set him and his mom up in the best hotel room he could and it was unbelievable. Making his trip even more memorable, in a time when everyone that knows Marik wishes they could forget all he is going through with cancer. For those few hours they did. Which is a blessing no words can express.

This is not the first DJ has done this, and it will not be the last. But this is a time when we need stories like this. We need them every day, but more now than in the past

Warning if you read all the posts you will cry because you wish you could do something to make Marik and his family’s life easier. Then you see what DJ did and it is so beautiful, it will bring tears to your eyes.

Tomorrow when you read about that guy, remember there are guys like The Rock that go beyond the call of duty and make a difference in so many lives for the better.


Jesus Campos, the Las Vegas security guard, breaks his silence about that night
October 19th, 2017 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]

October 1st, the World was horrified when they heard that there was a shooting in Las Vegas aimed at an outdoor concert attended by thousands of people. With each passing hour, the news got worse and worse as we found out that 58 innocent people died and nearly 500 people were injured. We were sickened, saddened and angered. Then the stories came out about all of the heroes there were that night from first responders to the people at the concert to civilians who were passing by. It was the little bit of solace we needed to get through this tragedy.

There was one story from a hero we did not hear about and that was the story that Jesus Campos had to tell. Yesterday he told his side of the harrowing event that was about to unfold to Ellen DeGeneres. He is a security guard at the Bellagio who was just doing his job. That is until he got a call that would change his life forever. He went to check on door on the 32nd floor that was open for too long. He went up the stairwell from the floor below, but the door would not open. That is not supposed to happen, so he took the elevator to check out what was happening. That is when he realized the door was bolted up with brackets. He called engineering to check it out and that was when he heard what he thought was drilling. It turned out that it was gunshots and he had been shot. He called downstairs to let them know what was happening and did not even tell them that he had been shot.

At that moment, Stephen Schuck from engineering came up, and Campos told him to take cover. Saving his life. That was not the only life he directly saved that day, he also saved a female guest’s life who was coming out of her room. He told her to go back inside and she did. Then there are all the lives below, who were saved because he called in the shooting, stopping the f*cker earlier than he anticipated.

When Ellen offered the two men money, they refused it. Instead, she gave them tickets to their favorite sports teams and Shutterfly donated $25,000 in their names to GoFundMe page set up for the victims of that horrific night.

All of that makes him Campos a hero. But what sets him apart from a lot of other heroes, is just how humble he is. He did let them initially know that he was shot so that can work faster to get the shooter. Even though he was bleeding, he did not go to the hospital, so that he could help law enforcement. He did not take money that was offered to him. And most importantly, he does not comprehend all that he did that night and that he saved countless lives. He is not asking for credit, he just wants to be left alone to get over it. That is something we will grant him, but we will also never forget that this the face of a true hero. We need more people like him and we are glad that he was there night and will continue to be there for the rest of his life.

Thank you Jesus Campos. Thank you!
