6/10/2018

Sometimes no matter how bad a situation may seem, we just need to be able to laugh at it and keep moving. We need to be able to laugh at ourselves and our situations to sometimes keep from actually crying. Laughter is indeed good medicine.

More
In addition to the Marc Medley Show, I host a weekly radio talk show where I interview authors from around the world. The name of the show is THE READING CIRCLE WITH MARC MEDLEY. It is heard live each Saturday beginning at 6 a.m. ET on gobrave.org and FM radio WP88.7 FM. So since I host a show about reading, I thought I would offer some book or reading recommendations.

There's No Way I'm Going To Let April 4th Pass

4/4/2018
More
Today marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. A man who is to me what Gandhi was to him. As Dr. King studied Gandhi, I've studied Dr. King. Given my love for what Martin Luther King, Jr. stood for there is no way that I am going to allow today, April 4, 2018 to pass without saying something on The Marc Medley Show.

Reframing Profitability and The March For Our Lives Demonstrations

3/31/2018
More
I thought the efforts of our youth during the March For Our Lives demonstrations were awesome! Sadly, while some things may change as a result of the awakening, a lot will not because too much money is being made on the sale and manufacture of guns. The gun industry is no different from the pharmaceutical, food, insurance, and oil industries when it comes to money and profit. One could argue that the same could even be said of education. The very industries and systems that one would think...

Two Metaphors For Life

3/18/2018
More
Metaphor -(1) a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is applied to an object or action to which it is not literally applicable. (2) a thing regarded as representative or symbolic of something else, especially something abstract. In this episode, I give two metaphors for life; one being our need to have the proper tools to get a job done effectively and the other being our view of things during and after a struggle.

We Could Put A Dent In All Of This Gun Violence If We Really Wanted To

2/18/2018
More
We can put an end to all of this gun violence if we really wanted to. The fact of the matter is, there is too much money being made for it to end. We cannot have it both ways. We cannot want gun violence to end while at the same time supporting and purchasing guns of any kind including toy guns.

Learn Something New Every Day

12/28/2017
More
"Learn Something New Every Day" is a phrase that I tell people quite frequently. When I say that, I don't mean it has to be something monumental or something profound as it could be an extremely small fact or concept that you did not know. We all ought to strive to learn something new every day regardless of how big or small the idea may be. We ought not ever stop learning. We never become too old to learn and none of us know it all or are experts at everything.

Let's Treat Each Other Like It's December All Year 'Round

11/26/2017
More
Have you ever noticed how in December during the holiday season, the disposition of most folks change? People are nicer to each other. They smile more. They greet each other and do small gestures like holding the door for each other more than throughout the rest of the year. Why can't we do that all year 'round? I'm convinced the world would be a nicer place if we did.

Yes Mr. Ball A Thank You Was In Order

11/24/2017
More
While I can be very critical of the actions of our current president, in this instance I happen to side with him. Not that I am condoning his childish responses on Twitter concerning the matter; however, I can understand where he is coming from. Truth be told, I would hope that Mr. Trump did not make the effort to free the young men from the Chinese prison just for praise, but out of truly being concerned for their well being as U.S.Citizens. I have traveled outside of the U.S. on multiple...
