Child Beauty Pageants

pageant queen

Beauty Pageant in your very own backyard. Every summer, I go to the Namiss Pageant which is held at the beautiful Marriott Hotel in Brooklyn to support my friend who has a grand daughter that participates. While only one can win the crown; everyone is a winner in my book. To achieve success one must work hard and have confidence and a desire to achieve whatever.
A girl must do her part because the crown is not handed down to those who are just laid back. You have to earn it! The pageant Judges are focused on communication and presentation skills. It is very fun and entertaining up to the point where the decision is made and the winner is crowned Queen. Tempers fly and it turns to be rather emotional. Many who do not place feel bad. Girls cry and parents get upset. Well, considering the fees and preparation, I tend to understand where they come from; yet this should be a time to learn and improve. This is a time to boost the young girl or young lady's self-esteem because no body likes losing. Failure is normal and anyone can win pageant queen by following tips found at tips and secrets to winning your next beauty pageant.

Caring , Love , Empathy, Compassion


I passed her way for 3 years. I saw her almost every day. In this woman, I saw my sister, my mother, my friend, and yet, because she lived on the sidewalk, because the sidewalk was her bed, and her
clothes were not fancy, she did not live in a mansion, all her belongings was in a little crocus bag ; I got caught in the same trap and treated her like she was a ghost. I treated her like she did not exist.And, that is wrong.


Today, we talk and sometimes I stretch out my hands to her when I can . I am not saying that we should go out there and be friends with everyone out there, No! Too many are already pretty much messed up.
The homeless, less fortunate or those who are different need someone to talk too. It does not take much to say a word of kindness or encouragement. Some people need to think about how they would feel if the tables were turned and maybe then empathy will flow. These acts of kindness and emotions of empathy will not take away from us; yet, some of us are guilty. Some of us are so wrapped up in our own lives that we do not hear or see the hurting. These are human beings like us, born in God's image.
Maybe on their life's journey something happened that placed them in the state they are or they are just born that way ;but that is no excuse to exclude them and treat them like they are invisible. Some people fail to realize that no one is immune to life's setbacks or failures.
Life is
treacherous.
One never knows what will happen in the next second; so it is pivitol that bowels of empathy be opened and shared with those we come in contact with because one never knows. People wait when a catastrophe happens; but by then it's too late. One would think that Columbine and Virginia Tech heightened our awareness but the circumstances surrounding the events seem to be long forgotten. We all need to do our part to prevent another
