Which apple are you?

My friend, mentor, and hopefully future colleague, Dr. Michael Nuccitelli, recently shared with me the link to a TED Talk with Philip Zimbardo as the lecturer. If that name sounds familiar, you may recall his famous Stanford Prison Experiment that went awry, but taught us some valuable lessons. It was the beginning of understanding how good people can become bad.

The TED Talk is one worth watching. I would encourage my readers to watch and listen for yourself. I found it enlightening and Dr. Zimbardo gives an explanation that should be further explored in the area of social media. The following picture is courtesy of Philip Zimbardo’s TED Talk:

Time is Valuable

When I started this blog, I had far too much time on my hands. I started the spring term, and since then, my free time to explore and write is fewer and farther between.

Two weeks ago, I spent 48 hours in classes at two locations. My weekly courses carry a decent amount of homework that has kept me busy (not to mention the daily care as a mother).

I’ve been sitting with a draft I’ve wanted to finish before publishing, but I haven’t had the time to finish my thought on the subject. I’m about to publish my unfinished thought to get the links out and when I have the time, I’ll get the rest of my thought out.

Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights

On the post Dark Truth, I had linked a YouTube video that featured Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights at the end of the video.

I wanted to find out more and they have a DVD and information packet available to the public. I requested the DVD and information so I could pass the information onto my readers, friends, family, peers and my current teachers. (I write this in excited anticipation of receiving it.)

The American public has been brainwashed to believe certain stigmas about mental illness. I like to research details to come to my own conclusions. This is a dirty secret that needs to be spread- for yourself, friends, family members and the millions of children effected by the lies of society.

I’ve signed up with a couple other Human Rights websites in the past, but this Commission is the first to follow up with me, personally. I’m excited to work with them in my area in the near future.

Please don’t just believe my word. This organization has done an immense amount of research over many years. Take a minute to read their tireless effort to give us the truth of “mental illness”.
