CIA Volunteers Make a Difference

 

Don "G" was a special friend (Hospice VA client) to all the staff and to our new class of 2000 CIA hospice volunteers(10).  Because of who he was and the loving space that he provided, all the Volunteers new they could all be welcomed with a "smile" and a  "thank you"  for coming to visit.   Don was so special to the staff and the volunteers that we gave him a  "Un-Birthday."   A traditional Birthday is to give gifts.  A "Un-Birthday" is a day when you acknowledge the gifts you have received (that you get to carry with you) by the interaction with another human being who has touched your life.   We (staff and volunteers) circled around Don at the VA Hospice for his "Un-Birthday."  As each person held the Lighted candle they would share with Don the gifts he gave them, then pass the candle to the next person in the circle of love.  There were tears, sorrow, and laughter.  After we all toasted with Don (using pain-med cups),  Don asked to say a few words.  Don thanked all of us with a little tear in his eye.  He would always ask, "Why Am I Still Here?"  Because of this tribute, Don said "I will never ask "Why Am I Still Here?"  Don was a great story teller (you felt like you were with him in the story),  he was always able to come up with a "SMILE" to make you feel welcomed,  he was always able to come up with enough energy to have time for you,  he was always able to look beyond the pain to make you feel welcomed and everything was a "OK."   I have been doing this hospice volunteer work for 12 years.  Everyone of my friends (clients) have given me a gift.  The "GIFT" I shared with Don that night and I will share with you is "even if your terminal you can still be giving the gift of who you are, and making a difference in other peoples lives right up to your last breath."   "THANK YOU DON FOR THE SPECIAL GIFT."  Doves gift from Don is "you can have integrity to the end."   MAHALO NUI LOA!   --Dove and TOM

Because of Don all 10 graduates of the year "2000" training at Long  Beach are still doing the work.   What a Tribute to Don!

Don was a special indeed!  I had the pleasure to visit with Don 2 days before he left us.   He was cheerful and a great motivation to all those around him.  This holiday, I would ask that you send a Christmas card to a Veteran at your local VA or other nursing facilities.  My life is enrich by having met Don!   The Long Beach VA is blessed to have these fine CIA volunteers! --Mel

Notes & Thoughts By W. G. Black Ph.D. - Founder of Gakati'yi

The Ten Octaves of Unconditional Love are Present(s) Here and Now.  Let us practice, share and show our beliefs in abundance during this season. Great Britain has just announced the forgiving of $1.5 Billion in debt with some third world countries stipulating that it be spent in humanitarian ways.  Let us pray, meditate and visualize other such miracles into manifested realization now.

Miracles save time and prevent or reverse destruction, injury or harm.  That explains why they are so important to us and so valuable. One of the darkest parts of our history has been the misuse of miracles for purposes of destruction, such as military projects to discover faster, more efficient ways to destroy people and property. Progress has been made through interventions.  There is much left to do, however.  Let us resolve to do our part this Holiday Season to use our miraculous powers with love as the basis and the saving of precious time and the  prevention of unnecessary suffering as our goals.  May we have the loving heart, the total commitment and the faith of the precious young girl in this story, furnished by Fred Sparkman, M.Th.

I receive a lot stories, and seldom burden others with them.  But, a few minutes ago I received the following from Lee Duckworth.  It is so touching I thought you might find it worth the time. If so, perhaps you know someone with whom to share it.

Tess was a precocious eight year old who heard her Mom and Dad talking about her little brother, Andrew.  All she knew was that he was very sick and they were completely out of money. They were moving to an apartment complex next month because Daddy didn't have the money for the doctor bills and their house.

Only a very costly surgery could save him now and it was looking like there was none to loan them the money.

She heard Daddy say to her tearful Mother with whispered desperation,
"Only a miracle can save him now."

Tess went to her bedroom and pulled a glass jelly jar from its hiding place in the closet.  She poured all the change out on the floor and counted it carefully.  Three times, even.  The total had to be exactly perfect.  No chance here for mistakes.

Carefully placing the coins back in the jar and twisting on the cap, she slipped out the back door and made her way 6 blocks to Rexall's Drug Store with the big red Indian Chief sign above the door.  She waited patiently for the pharmacist to give her some attention, but he was too busy at this moment.

Tess twisted her feet to make a scuffing noise.  Nothing.  She cleared her throat with the most disgusting sound she could muster.  No good.  Finally she took a quarter from her jar and banged it on the glass counter.  That did it!

"And what do you want?" the pharmacist asked in an annoyed tone of voice. "I'm talking to my brother from Chicago whom I haven't seen in ages," he said without waiting for a reply to his question.

"Well, I want to talk to you about my brother," Tess answered back in the same annoyed tone." He's really, really sick... and I want to buy a miracle."

"I beg your pardon?" said the pharmacist.

"His name is Andrew and he has something bad growing inside his head and my Daddy says only a miracle can save him now.  So how much does a miracle cost?"

"We don't sell miracles here, little girl.  I'm sorry but I can't help you," the pharmacist said, softening a little.

"Listen, I have the money to pay for it.  If it isn't enough, I will get the rest.  Just tell me how much it costs."

The pharmacist's brother was a well dressed man.  He stooped down and asked the little girl, "What kind of a miracle does your brother need?"  I don't know," Tess replied with her eyes welling up.   "I just know he's really sick and Mommy says he needs an operation.  But my Daddy can't pay for it, so I want to use my money.

"How much do you have?" asked the man from Chicago.

"One dollar and eleven cents," Tess answered barely audibly. "And it's all the money I have, but I can get some more if I need to.

"Well, what a coincidence," smiled the man. "A dollar and eleven cents --- the exact price of a miracle for little brothers." He took her money in one hand and with the other hand he grasped her mitten and said "Take me to where you live.  I want to see your brother and meet your parents.  Let's see if I have the kind of miracle you need."

That well dressed man was Dr. Carlton Armstrong, a neurology surgeon.

The operation was completed without charge and it wasn't long until Andrew was home again and doing well.  Mom and Dad were happily talking about the chain of events that had led them to this place. "That surgery," her Mom whispered, "was a real miracle.  I wonder how much it would have cost?"

Tess smiled.  She knew exactly how much a miracle cost ... one dollar and eleven cents ... plus the faith of a little child.

A miracle is not the suspension of natural law, but the operation of a higher law.

Friends of the Vietnam War In Memory Memorial Plaque Project

A year ago we obtained the introduction of legislation to authorize In Memory plaque. By Memorial day, Congress had passed it unanimously, and in June the President signed it into law.  Now we need help with the job of raising money for the plaque recognizing our Vietnam veterans whose service-related deaths occurred postwar. Many of you have already sent your contributions to the ABMC, and some of you have notified us so that we have been able to include the information on our web site’s dedication and recognitions web page. But we need still more of you to join in and make a donation in memory of your veteran to help fulfill the ABMC’s requirement for a substantial financial nest egg with which to start its work.  As the end of the year approaches, remember that plaque project donations to the ABMC are tax-deductible charitable contributions, either for individuals, private businesses or corporations with which you may be associated.

Here’s the official word from the ABMC web site:

"On June 15, 2000, President Clinton signed Public Law 106-214, authorizing the American Battle Monuments Commission to solicit and accept private donations for the design, procurement and installation of a commemorative plaque to be added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. The plaque will honor those veterans who died after their service during the Vietnam war as a result of that service and whose names are not otherwise eligible for placement on the Memorial wall.  The plaque will be placed within the existing 13 acre site of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Although its location, design and its inscription have not been determined, the public law specifies that it shall be at least 6 square feet and not exceed 18 square feet."   The American Battle Monuments Commission is now accepting private, tax deductible donations to fund its work in the planning and execution of the plaque, according to Col. Anthony N. Corea, USAF, the ABMC's director of operations and finance. All contributions will be placed in a separate  U. S.  Treasury trust fund and used solely for the establishment of the commemorative plaque.  When you send your plaque contribution to the ABMC, you are invited to notify the Vietnam War In Memory Memorial, Inc., to have your name and your veteran's name added to a list for placement on our planned dedication web page. (Please do not tell us the amount of your contribution. All donations are equally welcome.)

Your check or money order made out to:  "ABMC - VVM MEMORIAL PLAQUE" goes to:

  WHY ARE WE HERE?

By Rebekah Clark Dunlap


Mankind came into the world to bring forth his God-likeness; that is, to express his own true nature which is the Christ. Enfolded within each person is the divine pattern, the glorious blueprint, or the God idea of the perfect person.

We are gradually coming out of the mental darkness of our past beliefs into the light of understanding where we can now realize each one of us is an evolving soul, expanding in spiritual consciousness to realign with conscious union with God. As we move forward, we conquer the fear of death, illness, poverty, and loneliness. We begin to realize that we must do certain things for our self. No one else can do them for us.

The experiences of our return to God-likeness are shown in our life and attitudes of today, and what we do today will shape our future destiny. Thus, let us regard life as one continuous process of evolution. Our divine plan is to return at-one-ment with the Father-Mother Creator, and at some point and time we shall experience the inner tug that will pull us forward to this great goal. The time will come when we can cast aside the earthly shackles altogether, and as the flower opens to the sunlight, we shall unfold into the great spiritual evolution of perfection.

How beautiful the moment of ascension when the soul is freed from all the ties that have held it over its long past, and the awakened Christ consciousness, fully bloomed, ascends to the mountaintop of expression and from there, rises unfettered into the light and glory of God's kingdom come!
