Colorado Communities Are Making It a Crime to Be Homeless

Now is the time of year when poverty and homelessness are most prominent on the minds of many Americans. As families gather to eat together and give thanks for their lives, many of us also take time to think about the struggles of people who are less fortunate.

Less often do we think or even know about the extreme measures that are used by local lawmakers and police to criminalize the existence of people who are homeless and to target, harass, and drive people living in extreme poverty out of their communities.

What would you do if you were suddenly homeless, with no money and no place to go? It’s not an abstract question for many American families, nearly half of which lack the assets to avoid severe poverty and possible homelessness if they were to face a crisis such as loss of a job, high medical bills, domestic violence, divorce, or the onset of mental illness.

Perhaps you would seek a homeless shelter, if you could manage transportation to get there. But what if there were no more beds, as is often the case in many communities? If you were lucky enough to own a sleeping bag, you might try to find a safe spot to sleep. That’s exactly what ACLU client David Madison did when the shelters in Boulder, Colorado, turned him away on a November evening in 2009, but he was charged with violating a camping ordinance that prohibited sleeping outside with shelter. With the temperature dropping to 11 degrees, he could have legally slept outside in only his clothes, but a blanket or sleeping bag counted as “shelter” and made him a criminal.

Communities in Colorado and around the nation have passed a wave of new laws and ramped up enforcement of old ones targeting people who are homeless, from bans on sleeping in cars or taking shelter in bus stations to laws that prohibit sitting or lying down in public areas to restrictions on when and where someone can peacefully ask for charity. Less than a month ago, two ministers and a 90-year-old man were arrested in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, for giving food to homeless people in violation of a food-sharing ordinance. Bans on outdoor smoking are disproportionately enforced against people who are homeless, and trends toward fewer public facilities or restrooms make public urination next to impossible, leading to arrests that can put someone on a sex offender list simply because nature called and there was nowhere to go.

Many ordinances have nothing to do with any conduct but make it a crime merely to exist in the wrong place or time, such as vagrancy, loitering, curfew, park hour limitations or trespass laws. A new “geographic restriction” program in Colorado Springs would ban some individuals from downtown areas altogether. The program is supposedly aimed only at repeat criminal offenders, but the most frequent citations that could lead to banishment are all minor nonviolent offenses or time-and-place violations.

These measures go far beyond valid restrictions on aggressive panhandling or genuinely criminal behavior. Some are unconstitutional under the First Amendment, and some are simply cruel, criminalizing the mere existence of homeless men, women and children. Their goal is simply to drive people who are homeless out of a community or neighborhood and into a different one. They do nothing to address the actual causes of homelessness but just try to hide it from sight or drive it somewhere else.

Many of us feel discomfort walking or driving past people who are homeless, even in situations where there is no safety risk at all, since seeing homeless people reminds us of the problem and makes us think about whether or how we will respond. Perhaps that isn’t all bad. What if you were the homeless one and your community only gave you the choice of jail and a criminal record, fines you couldn’t afford, or fleeing to another community that also only wanted you to leave?

Aggressive policing, enforcement, and jailing for these offenses also cost money. That money would be better spent addressing the causes of homelessness, whether through adequately paying work, affordable housing, unemployment benefits, healthcare coverage, or better resources for substance abuse and mental health care, including for veterans with PTSD. At the very least, public spaces should remain public, civil liberties should be upheld even for those without a home, and people who are homeless should have access to basic services instead of being criminalized by restrictive ordinances designed to make them go somewhere else — anywhere else — wherever that might be.

Take action: Tell Colorado communities to stop passing and enforcing laws that make it a crime to be homeless.

The American Consultants Rx discount prescription cards are to be given free to anyone in need of help curbing the high cost of prescription drugs.

Due to the rising costs, unstable economics, and the mounting cost of prescriptions, American Consultants Rx Inc. (ACRX) a.k.a (ACIRX) an Atlanta based company was born in 2004. The ACRX discount prescription card program was created and over 25 million discount prescription cards were donated to over 18k organizations across the country to be distributed to those in need of prescription assistance free of charge since 2004.

The ACRX cards will offer discounts of name brand drugs of up to 40% off and up to 60% off of generic drugs.

Any one can use these cards but ACRX is focusing on those who are uninsured, underinsured, or on Medicare. The ACRX cards are now in Spanish as well.

American Consultants Rx made arrangements online for the ACRX card to be available at http://www.acrxcards.com where it can also be downloaded. This arrangement has been made to allow organizations an avenue to continue assisting their clients in the community until they receive their orders of the ACRX cards. ACRX made it possible for cards to be requested from online for individuals and organizations free of charge. Request for the ACRX cards can also be made by mailing a request to : ACRX, P.O.Box 161336,Atlanta,GA 30321, faxing a written request to 404-305-9539,or calling the office at 404-767-1072.

American Consultants Rx is working diligently to assist as many people and organizations as possible. It should be noted that while many other organizations and companies place a cost on their money saving cards, American Consultants Rx does not believe a cost should be applied, just to assist our fellow Americans. American Consultants Rx states that it will continue to strive to assist those in need.

Holiday Survival 101

Now that Halloween is in the rear view mirror, we’re speeding towards the holidays and if we’re not careful, to the destination of burnout.

Foods we don’t usually eat, later nights than usual, holiday expectations, family dynamics and the financial stress of gift buying can send even the strongest person right over the edge. It’s no surprise so many of us start the new year feeling exhausted and sick.

How to skip symptoms of burnout? I’ve got five easy ways to carve out a little sanity amongst the chaos.

Holiday Survival 101.

1. Remember time-outs when you were a kid?

Back then you probably considered them punishment but today they will save you from punishing yourself. Taking small breaks throughout the day for me-time isn’t self indulgent, it’s necessary during the holidays.

How to find the time?

  • Turn your cell phone off during your lunch break and actually take a break.

  • Start your day without the Internet by giving yourself some peace and quiet within the first hour of waking. You may be running around making breakfast and starting your day, but you don’t have to add in the mental mind candy of the internet too. It will be there when you’re actually ready to greet the world.
  • Drive with your cell phone in the backseat. Being present is not only safe, but those brief stop light stops are great times to take three slow deep breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth to calm your nervous system.

2. Drink up to your heart’s content.

Up your water intake, especially when drinking alcohol. A good rule of thumb? Two eight ounce glasses of water for every alcoholic drink.

Dehydration, which naturally occurs when we’re drinking, dancing or running around like crazy on a busy shopping day forgetting to hydrate, suppresses the immune system.

According to the findings of F. Batmanghelidj, M.D., as published in the October 1987 Journal of Anticancer Research:

Dehydration suppresses the immune system in many different ways. Just to name a few: first, histamine production in the body is increased, which also increases the production of a chemical called vasopressin, a strong suppressor of the immune system. Second, excess histamine also causes the shutdown of interferon, a critical anticancer chemical that is present in a hydrated body. And third, histamine suppresses immune activity in the bone marrow, which is the central production center of the white blood cells–the immune cells that can destroy and digest cancer cells.

For me, living at 5400 feet above sea-level- I drink four quarts a day. Not only does it make my already dehydrated skin look better, but I also have more energy and stay well all season long. An added bonus? Having a healthy snack and drinking a large glass of water before a party fills me up so I can enjoy a sampling of appetizers vs. stuffing myself after arriving starving.

3. Vegetables are your friends for surprising reasons.

I love holiday food as much as the next person, but consuming all that traditional whipped, melted and creamy goodness can cause a mucus response that leads to congestion, trouble sleeping and intestinal duress. Making sure you eat something green at every meal not only helps to curb your appetite, it also aids digestion and lowers stress levels.

According to Dr. Mercola:

Move over mac-and-cheese… vegetables are the REAL comfort foods, with nutrients that actually improve your resilience to stress. Eating vegetables helps replenish your magnesium and vitamin C, which can be depleted by stress.

Vegetables also provide you with omega-3 fats and B vitamins, proven to help reduce anxiety and depression. The vitamin K in veggies helps reduce inflammation in your body, which stress can aggravate.

Green leafy vegetables, such as kale, spinach, and Swiss chard, are loaded with magnesium, which helps balance your cortisol, one of your ‘stress hormones.’ Magnesium and potassium relax blood vessels, helping keep your blood pressure low.

4. Tell yourself different holiday stories.

There’s nothing like returning home to family to re-trigger old emotional patterns. Ever wonder why the minute you walk through your parent’s front door, you find yourself acting 12 years old again? There’s an emotional bouillabaisse of memories there for you to re taste aren’t there?

When you find yourself feeling triggered by a family member, escape to a quiet place like the bathroom and reality check yourself. Tell yourself 5 things about your current life that have nothing to do with where you are right now. Close your eyes and take those 3 breaths I mentioned in my first point, then come up with 3 reasons the person triggering you might have for acting the way they do that have nothing to do with you personally.

By removing ourselves from the scene of family dynamics for a few moments, we diffuse our knee jerk reactions that usually stem from childhood. By reminding yourself of 5 things about your current life, you’ll pull yourself into present moment versus the past– and when you come up with a few other reasons a family member might be saying or doing something, it further removes you from the story you’re writing in your head and diffuses an emotional response.

5. Remove yourself from the scene of drama.

Avoid additional stress during the holidays by refusing to participate in the drama unfolding around you. Whether the drama is in your workplace, home or shopping center, remind yourself not my circus, not my monkey.

Easier said than done eh? Here are a few tips:

  • Hold your tongue and remind yourself that most people aren’t going to change. You’ve only got so much emotional energy to spend- do you really want to spend it on the situation at hand?

  • Take a walk outside solo. Tuning into the world around you through your senses brings you into the present moment where peace resides.

  • Put that adrenaline running through your body to better use. Go for a run, grab a yoga class, or drop into a local gym for an hour and burn the drama out of your mind.

When we stay in the midst of drama, it’s almost impossible to not be drawn in.

Part of what makes the holidays so special is being around family, experiencing the joy of giving, the indulgence of special food and drink, and the fun of holiday parties. It’s super OK to dive into all of it, we’ve just got to remember ways to come up for air.

If you enjoyed this post and would like to take a deeper dive into finding balance, clearing the slate, and finding your Mojo again-my next 40 day personal reboot is starting soon. It’s virtual and live calls get recorded so you’ll never miss out regardless of time zone or schedule.

Americans Mark Thanksgiving With Parades, Turkey

NEW YORK (AP) — Millions of Americans across the country marked Thanksgiving Day with lots of turkey, football, parades and early shopping, while many overcame nasty weather, power outages and even being buried in the snow. At the White House, President Barack Obama spent a quiet holiday with a traditional meal.

Here’s a look at how Americans celebrated: ___

A MACY’S THANKSGIVING DAY SUCCESS

Heavy security including bomb-sniffing dogs and police helicopters protected spectators of all ages who lined the route of the nationally televised Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which counted Thomas the Tank Engine, Paddington bear and the Red Mighty Morphin Power Ranger among its six new giant balloons.

Before the parade was over, snow flurries had replaced drizzle as thousands of people discovered they could get no closer than a long block away from the colorful spectacle.

“I can’t go to the front. I can only see from here,” said Ivan Souza, of Florianopolis, Brazil, as he watched with his wife and two children.

Daryl Winchester, 17, of Queens, was luckier, snagging a front-row spot across the street from grandstands where the parade began.

“This is great. It’s nice to feel so festive for the holidays,” she said as she took pictures, waved and shouted encouragement to parade participants.

Shannon Hampton, a Lakeland, Florida, resident celebrating her 18th birthday with a friend, said the parade was exciting.

“My favorite part has to be the balloons because they are so much bigger in person than you think they would be,” she said.

___

HOW THE FIRST FAMILY CELEBRATED

President Barack Obama spent a quiet Thanksgiving at the White House, where the belly-stuffing menu featured all the holiday’s basics. He also continued a tradition of telephoning members of the armed forces to thank them for their service.

The first family feasted on thyme-roasted turkey and honey-baked ham, cornbread stuffing and oyster stuffing, braised winter greens and macaroni and cheese. Don’t forget the green bean casserole, sweet potato gratin, mashed potatoes, dinner rolls and pies.

Obama said Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday “because, more than any other, it is uniquely American.”

___

FERGUSON PROTESTS NEAR PARADE

In New York City, seven people protesting a grand jury’s decision not to indict a white police officer in the shooting death of an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, were arrested after they tried to march toward the parade route, police said.

Near the end of the parade route, about 50 protesters walked down the sidewalk carrying signs and chanting, “Hands up, don’t shoot.”

“We will not tolerate, under any circumstances, any effort to disrupt this parade,” police Commissioner William Bratton said earlier Thursday. “This is a national event, a historic event. Anybody who would seek to interrupt it would be callous, indeed, on this very special day.”

Protests in New York have remained peaceful since the grand jury’s decision. The streets of Ferguson were calm with the arrival of the holiday, in contrast to sometimes violent protests that occurred earlier in the week.

___

IN THE DARK

Power outages from a major snowstorm forced some in the Northeast to celebrate Thanksgiving much like the pilgrims and Native Americans did almost 400 years ago — in the dark.

The outages were particularly bad in northern New England, where about 200,000 customers remained without power in New Hampshire on Thursday afternoon and about 80,000 were without electricity in Maine.

More than 35,000 New York utility customers were without power Thursday afternoon and about 15,000 customers lacked power in New Jersey.

In Putney, Vermont, Mike Mrowicki was in the middle of baking squash and making apple-cranberry crisp when his lights flickered off. Mrowicki said Thursday his family will improvise on its meal for 10 people.

“We’ve got a gas stove, and we’ve got a woodstove we heat with,” Mrowicki said. “We’ve got plenty of lanterns and candles.”

___

THANKFUL PARENTS

The parents of two New York boys who went missing for several hours gave thanks Thursday morning after the boys were found buried in snow but alive.

Officials say a plow operator moving snow in a Newburgh parking lot didn’t realize the boys had been out there playing.

A police officer found a shovel in a snow bank and started digging around 2 a.m. Then he found a small boot. Other officers, relatives and community members used shovels and their hands to help dig out the 9- and 11-year-old boys, who were conscious but suffering from exposure.

The boys were taken to a hospital, where one remains under observation.

___

HOLIDAY SHOPPING

To the delight of some and consternation of others, it’s increasingly become commonplace to see stores open on Thanksgiving, as retailers try to entice shoppers inside and kick off the holiday shopping season a day earlier than the traditional Black Friday. Some of the stores open for at least part of the holiday included Kmart, Target, Sears, Macy’s and Wal-Mart. Other stores, like Neiman-Marcus, Nordstrom and Costco, were closed.

At a Manhattan Kmart, Pamala Hill went for the 2-for-1 shoe special.

“Yes, that’s why I’m here,” Hill said. “They are fitting, and they are comfortable. I’m wearing them out of the store. We are going to pay for them up front. Because I gotta get boots. My feet are freezing. I’m from Florida.”

#GivingTuesday 2014: Individual Action, Worldwide Impact

America has developed a wide number of social innovations that have matured from novel experiments into best practices for healthy societies.  We pioneered new approaches to charitable giving such as the community foundation.  We developed national service into a standard rite for youth development.  But in just a few short years, #GivingTuesday has emerged as a potent new model of online and offline engagement that was pioneered in our country but has taken root around the world.

Since it launched in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a case study in community organizing in the 21st century.  It follows the consumer traditions of Black Friday and Cyber Monday on the public calendar. But, unlike these commercial counterparts, #GivingTuesday offers a moment on the calendar to encourage Americans to reflect and give back.  Some might choose to volunteer their talent, others might make charitable contributions and still others simply to connect with friends and loved ones.  Through millions of online clicks and offline acts, we expect #GivingTuesday will take many forms, but all will be energized by a common impulse to make life better, especially for those in need.

It’s exciting that the #GivingTuesday organizers have exceeded the heights achieved in prior years.  In 2015, it will take place through more than 18,000 partner organizations spread across all 50 states.  It will involve 40 local communities who are developing their own unique campaigns to motivate and organize local citizens on making a difference. 

This year, #GivingTuesday also could be described as #GlobalTuesday in 2015 because it is reaching beyond our borders.  This year, the event will encompass citizens of dozens of countries around the world who are customizing their initiatives to their cultural norms and local needs.  So, without regard to ethnicity, nationality, faith or political affiliation, millions are poised to be engaged in this worldwide moment.

Here at the White House, President Obama is proud to celebrate this American innovation that is creating world changing impact.

So now our question is – how will you celebrate #GivingTuesday?

Jonathan Greenblatt is a Special Assistant to the President and the Director of the Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation.

The Battle for Islam

With over 1.6 billion followers, one third of them living as minorities, Islam is a major force in the world today. An active factor in international relations, its influence is far from local or confined to countries and communities classified as “Muslim.” With the presence of Muslims in Western capitals and the rapid diffusion of mass-communication media, Islam has become a globalized subject, albeit one largely viewed through the prism of security and intelligence. Amidst the rise of al-Qaeda, ISIS and other terrorist groups, it has become increasingly perceived in Europe and the U.S. as a generator of crises and a threat to global stability and security.

In spite of the deluge of images and narratives of Islam that has flooded the public space since September 11th, knowledge and understanding of the subject has remained limited. Few know the enormous diversity of the Muslim world and its societies, on the levels of schools of thought, religious interpretations, or sectarian pluralism. Fewer still realize that there exists no uniform Islam but divergent tendencies fostered and promoted by the general political climates where different Muslim communities happen to find themselves.

It is such conditions that define the form of Islam that gains prevalence in a given historical context. Like any other major religion, Islam has been in its past, and continues to be in the present, subject to multiple strategies of interpretation. In general terms, we can speak of three prominent trends competing over the hearts and minds of Muslims around the world today.

The first is theocratic, at the service of absolutist rulers for whom Islam is a means of acquiring a de facto authority wrested by the force of the sword and hereditary succession, above any checks and restraints, and free of any accountability. This Islam is armed with its network of institutions, funds, and functionaries. The essence of religion as an authentic spiritual experience is irrelevant here. What matters are the rituals and outward forms of religiosity as the source of power legitimation. Religion is a mere obedient and obliging servant of the ruler, his interests and whims. In the Arabian Peninsula, a Wahhabism wedded to rule by the sword represents the clearest embodiment of this form of Islam.

Its proponents are as eager to exhibit the ritualist and formalistic aspects of Islam in a crudely interventionist way, such as the imposition of prayer, the segregation of men and women and enforcement of the niqab, as they are to keep it remote from politics and the realms of power and authority. As soon as these taboos are touched, the religious establishment, with its guardians of the sacred army comprising official scholars, clergymen and preachers, springs into action, denouncing the culprits as deviant and unorthodox, thereby furnishing the religious cover for their silencing, oppression and elimination.

The second strategy is as morally absolutist, dogmatic, legalistic and exclusionary as the first but espouses a different type of politics. It is an anarchist form of Wahhabism. It feeds on the climates of crisis, wars and conflicts raging in Muslim lands and seeks a source of justification for the perpetration of violence and terror in the theology of Islam.

This minority current had been isolated in Khandahar and the distant mountains of Tora Bora. But the military invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq and widening circle of political, sectarian and ethnic conflicts has strengthened it and enabled it to resonate with growing sectors of angry, anxious and disillusioned Muslim youth. The Arab awakening, which gave people in the region hope of the possibility of peaceful political change, had dealt a powerful blow to this tendency.

But as its great aspirations were crushed under the boots of generals in Egypt, burnt in the furnace of civil wars in Libya and drowned in the bloodshed of Syria, this violent anarchist current gained fresh momentum and rose to the forefront once more. For all its noise and the enormous exposure it receives, however, it still fails to command religious legitimacy or acceptance in the eyes of most Muslims, who still dismiss it as religiously deviant and politically counterproductive, damaging to the image of Islam and the stability of Muslim societies.

The presence of such extremist groups and the extent of their influence depend to a large extent on the general political climates prevailing in the Muslim world. Unfortunately, these conditions, particularly those reigning in the Arab hemisphere, show no sign of rehabilitation or stabilization.

These two trends are at loggerheads with democratic modernist Islam, whose roots lie in the 19th-century Islamic reform movement founded by Jamaluddin al-Afghani and Mohamed Abdu, which revolves around the notion of compatibility between, on the one hand, Islamic spiritual and religious values and, on the other, what it describes as the “requisites” of modern times. These include the imposition of checks and balances on power, the adoption of democratic mechanisms and procedures, and the emancipation of Islam from what proponents of this reformist school describe as the “prison of stagnation and imitation.”

With the advent of modernization, urbanization and mass education, this current has amassed considerable influence in Muslim societies (and later among Muslim minorities). Today, it is under pressure from multiple quarters. One of these is the theocratic camp, which considers the very presence of an Islam that calls for restrictions on the authority of rulers and respect for the will of the people, expressed through electoral democracy, a direct threat to its existence. This explains the unrelenting war waged by certain Gulf states on the wave of democratic change in the Arab region for the last three years.

Alongside pressures from Arab theocracies, democratic Islam is challenged by Salafi jihadists who dismiss it as “diluted,” “soft” and “naive,” pinning its hopes on peaceful protests and ballot boxes, which, unlike armed warfare, lead nowhere.

And beyond the Muslim landscape, this brand of Islam is viewed with mistrust by many in American decision-making circles and across the Atlantic. In the name of realism and pragmatism, these prefer to deal with rulers who, though authoritarian and ruthless with their masses, are pliant and willing to leave their markets wide open for Euro-American goods and squander billions in their nations’ resources on weapons no one else would buy. These are, therefore, infinitely preferable to elected leaders bound by the will of their people and committed to their interests.

Those who call for the reformation and democratization of Islam seem to miss an essential fact: that a democratic reformist Islam has existed since the 19th century. It has its own literal body, pioneers, and thinkers, within both Shia and Sunni Islam. The question is: Does the situation of present-day Muslim society, marked by crisis, tensions, foreign interventions and political despotism, foster this reformist democratic Islam, or does it promote its violent and theocratic rivals?

Rather than sifting through Muslims’ religious texts, theological tracts and medieval polemical disputes, those agonizing over the “problem” of Islam would do well to ponder the concrete reality of real, living Muslims and seek to fix it rather than striving to fix Islam.

When was Thanksgiving officially established at the White House?

It all started on September 28, 1789, when the first Federal Congress asked President George Washington to declare a national day of thanksgiving. Just a few days later, George Washington issued a Presidential Proclamation declaring Thursday, November 26th as a national day of “public thanksgiving.”

However, it wasn’t until 1863 — when President Abraham Lincoln declared that the last Thursday of November be marked as Thanksgiving — that the holiday emerged as a national holiday.

But it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a little gravy mixed in with American history, right?

For Some Protesters, It Doesn’t Matter If Michael Brown’s Hands Were Up Or Not

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — The word spread within minutes of Michael Brown’s death — a young black man with his hands raised in surrender had just been shot by a white cop.

Soon, “Hands Up. Don’t Shoot!” became a rallying cry for protesters in the streets of this St. Louis suburb and a symbol nationwide of racial inequality for those who believe that minorities are too often the targets of overzealous police. Yet the witness accounts contained in thousands of pages of grand jury documents reviewed by The Associated Press show many variations about whether Brown’s hands were actually raised — and if so, how high.

To some, it doesn’t matters whether Brown’s hands literally were raised, because his death has come to symbolize a much bigger movement.

“He wasn’t shot because of the placement of his hands; he was shot because he was a big, black, scary man,” said James Cox, 28, a food server who protested this week in Oakland, California.

Some witnesses said the 18-year-old had his hands held high toward the sky as Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson gunned him down midday Aug. 9. Others thought they saw his hands partially raised, about shoulder high. To some witnesses, his palms appeared out, as if surrendering. To others, his palms seemed open, as if glancing at his wounded hand or gesturing with an attitude of “what are you going to do about it.” Some said Brown’s hands weren’t raised at all.

The truth may never be certain. Despite a three-month state grand jury investigation and an ongoing federal probe, no one has publicly disclosed any photos or videos capturing exactly what transpired.

After a Missouri prosecutor announced Monday night that the grand jury had decided not to indict Wilson, the symbolic chant of “Hands Up. Don’t Shoot!” rang out from protesters from Los Angeles to New York to London.

In Ferguson, some protesters have been wearing shirts with the phrase as they demonstrate outside the police station.

Protester Taylor Gruenloh, a 32-year-old white man from nearby Florissant, said that while he believes there’s truth to claims that Brown had his hands raised when shot, the lack of proof makes little difference to protesters who have found it to be a unifying force.

“Even if you don’t find that it’s true, it’s a valid rallying cry,” he said. “It’s just a metaphor.”

Brown had been walking with a friend down the center of Canfield Drive when Wilson, passing in his patrol vehicle, told them to move to the sidewalk. They did not. Wilson testified that he then realized Brown was a robbery suspect. A scuffle broke out at the vehicle. Wilson fired a shot that hit Brown in the right hand. When Brown ran, Wilson gave chase. At some point, Brown stopped and turned toward Wilson, who opened fire.

Wilson told the grand jury that Brown had his left hand in a fist at his side and his right hand under his shirt at his waist, and was charging toward him.

The phrase “hands up” is peppered throughout the grand jury documents, as prosecutors and investigators tried to clarify exactly what witnesses saw. In quite a few cases, it’s unclear exactly what the witnesses say they saw, because the gestures they made for grand jurors weren’t described in the transcripts.

Some of the witness accounts of the shooting differed so much they didn’t seem like the same scene.

“I saw him in the middle of the street on his knees with hands up,” one witness said. “(The) officer came up to him and shot him in his head and he fell.”

Another witness was insistent that Brown was on his feet and did not raise his hands.

“The officer was already in pursuit of him. He stopped. He did turn, he did some sort of body gesture, I’m not sure what it was, but I know it was a body gesture,” the witness said. “And I could say for sure he never put his hands up after he did his body gesture, he ran towards the officer full charge.”

In some regards, the disputed circumstances of Brown’s death highlight the inherent troubles with eyewitness testimony.

“It’s difficult for people under the best of circumstances to accurately report what happened,” said Elizabeth Brondolo, a psychology professor specializing in the effects of race on mental and physical health at St. John’s University in New York.

For Wilson and others at the shooting scene, what they say they saw may depend not just on their vantage point, but also their view of life, she said.

“The truth always really matters, but it’s important to recognize that past experience to stereotypes also influences the perception of hands being raised,” Brondolo said.

After the Ferguson grand jury announcement, several hundred protesters marched through central London with their hands raised, shouting “Hands Up. Don’t Shoot!” Others carried hand-made banners saying “Black lives matter.” The Brown shooting has particular resonance in London, which was rocked by days of rioting following the 2011 death of Mark Duggan, a young black man shot to death by police under disputed circumstances.

Architect Evan Chakroff was among the protesters this week in Seattle. He said the “Hands Up” gesture is far from a literal representation of the circumstances of Brown’s death.

“My sense is that it’s totally symbolic and a way of representing powerlessness” in the face of inequality and militarized police, he said.

Several demonstrators said focusing on the exact circumstances of Brown’s shooting misses the point of the slogan.

“This is not about one boy getting shot in the street, but about the hundreds just like him who have received the same callous and racially-influenced treatment,” said Oakland, California, protester Gabe Johnson, a middle school teacher. “So ultimately, no, it doesn’t matter at all if somehow we can say for sure whether this one young man really said these words or had his hands up.”

The 9-year-old from Wilmington, North Carolina, has collected 401 pounds of nonperishable food items for those in need, his mother, Kristi, told The Huffington Post. Wanting to help families put food on the table for Thanksgiving, Gunner began collecting the items on Oct. 13, according to WECT News.

Gunner amassed the donations by reaching out to friends and family, Kristi’s work colleagues and the family’s church community. All but 15 of the 401 pounds of items have been donated to a soup kitchen and food banks, Kristi told HuffPost on Monday, noting the rest will be given soon.

Kristi said her son simply wants everyone to have what he has.

“He says his favorite part of the holiday season is when all [of] his family gets together for the big meal,” she wrote on a Facebook page garnering donations from people wanting to help her son’s mission. “He hopes other families now will get that same opportunity.”

The Facebook group, Gunner’s Runners, launched this summer, when Gunner asked others to donate shoes for kids who may need them instead of receiving birthday gifts. He collected more than 400 pairs, CNN reported.

For Christmas, Kristi told HuffPost that Gunner plans to “adopt an angel” by choosing a child in need to provide presents to for the holiday.

How to Be Grateful and Stay Grounded This Holiday Season

I am so excited for my son to be home from college this week! His brothers keep telling me that they are happy and looking forward to have him home too. My son who is traveling home was saying that he is so excited to sleep in his own bed and to eat a home-cooked meal.

Through all of these feelings, I realize how important it is to be grateful for the little things in life. During the holidays, even if you don’t celebrate, you feel the excitement and tension in the air. There is so much power in simplicity, which is why I enjoy taking a holistic and uncomplicated approach in my holiday traditions.

This year, I will be cooking organic turkey for my kids, but I will also making vegan dishes that are healthy and easy to make. I stay committed to my yoga practice, since it has really provided me with the tools to take everything I learned on the mat and apply it to my life. I also enjoy a hike during the downtime of the cooking process. When I am done cooking, I take a bath with some sandalwood oil to ground my energy. I feel that if the host is chill, then everyone will have a good time.

During the holidays, we should talk about gratitude and try to keep an open heart, even if the week can provoke stress. We need to stay committed to ourselves while we engage with others. This time of year can be so exciting and so much fun, especially when we get to spend time with people we love and that we enjoy being with. Just remember to keep your inner smile and stay positive throughout the holiday season!

With love,
Osi

HuffPost Gives Thanks: What We’re Grateful For In 2014

There are several essentials for every Thanksgiving table. Of course, you have to have the turkey and the stuffing. Then there’s your grandmother’s china and the perfect seating arrangement. But perhaps the most important element is the gratitude that inevitably filters its way into dinner conversations across the country.

It’s really no surprise we take the opportunity to say thanks during the holidays: Experts suggest it can help us feel more connected to others. Counting your blessings — even the little ones — can also reduce stress and boost happiness.

Seeing as it’s so beneficial, we asked HuffPost staffers to share what they treasure most this year. From puppies to siblings to good health, we certainly have a lot to be thankful for. Take a look at our responses below, then share what you’re grateful for this year.

Happy Thanksgiving from The Huffington Post!

Show us what you’re grateful for, in one image, and we’ll share some of our favorites!

Holiday Stress Relief List

Everyone has a different take on why the holidays are so stressful. For some people the holidays are too commercial, for others the holidays mean spending a lot of money and credit card debt. For some people, the holidays are a painful reminder of a loved one who is no longer there.

If there is one thing that sums up holiday stress it’s having too much to do and not enough time to do it. When you start with an already hectic work schedule and add in the demands of holiday shopping, holiday baking, entertaining, gift-giving, the sending out holiday cards and spending copious amounts of money, you have a formula for a stressful December. This is one seasonal recipe you should try to avoid. And so here is a holiday stress-relief list, just in time for Black Friday.

1. Start early. In November, I will try to spend two or three evenings (at least) shopping for gifts. (Next year, think about spending just one evening in October, too.) It’s so much more pleasant to shop before Thanksgiving when it’s not crowded and you can easily find a parking space. You will really feel a lot more in control of your life if you can just knock off even 25 percent to 50 percent of your Christmas list before Black Friday comes a-haunting. Plus, by spreading your spending over three months instead of two, the more you will feel more in control of your finances.

Other things you can do ahead of time include hanging outdoor lights, getting cards ready ahead of time, and purchasing and decorating the tree. I often get my tree on the Saturday after Thanksgiving and put it up the following weekend. This year Thanksgiving comes late, so I’ll probably just put the tree up when I bring it home and get the holiday season started a little early.

2. Make a list of what NOT to do. As you head into the holiday season there are numerous chores, errands and projects that can be put off until January when your schedule will open up. Whether it’s cleaning up the garage, shopping for a new sofa (which wouldn’t arrive in time for the holidays anyway) or painting the kid’s bedroom, don’t start any optional projects right now.

3. Streamline what you dislike and savor what you love. We all have things we love to do at the holidays and things we wish we didn’t have to do. If you love making potato latkes or getting the Christmas tree — set aside time and make an afternoon of it. Get the whole family involved if you want to or just savor this activity yourself. On the other hand, if you dislike doing cards don’t feel obligated to “keep up with the Joneses.” Just say no — or streamline the process — cut your list way down, get a simple card, sign it (no long notes!) and send it on its way (guilt-free).

4. Find the true meaning of the holidays. Whether it’s attending services, donating toys and food, volunteering at a homeless shelter, visiting an elderly shut-in, or even watching “It’s a Wonderful Life,” look for activities that give you an emotional and/or spiritual lift. Remember the word “holiday” is short for Holy day. Let this definition be a reminder of the true meaning of the season.

5. To experience joy: allow extra time. Time pressure kills joy. Be aware of how time pressure can turn a pleasurable activity, like shopping or even going to a party, into an activity that loses its fun-factor. Whenever you’re feeling rushed, chances are you’ll wind up feeling crabby and stressed, too.

Bottom line: Build in extra padding into your busy schedule. If you think an activity will take an hour — allow at least two hours. I guarantee that if you follow just this one bit of advice, you’ll experience more joy.

6. Prioritize your list
. People are great at making lists but they rarely prioritize their lists. As a result, you wind up picking off low-priority tasks like vacuuming or raking leaves and not leaving enough time for high priority activities like spending time with family and friends. If the holidays seem hollow check your priorities and see if the things that are really important to you are at the top of your list.

7. Allow time for yourself. Don’t forget to allot some time every day (even if it’s just a half an hour) to recharge your own batteries. You can’t make anyone else happy if you are feeling miserable and stressed inside. Give yourself permission to go for walk, exercise, take a bath, listen to music, enjoy a leisurely cup of tea or do something just for the fun of it.
