CURRENT EVENTS

Opinions

Many people are getting upset about differences of opinions, which is causing disharmony among friends, family, co-workers and neighbors.  

                                              Is it really worth it?

To help you put things in to perspective, here are photos of the earth before and after your opinion.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

This is an extremely readable a practical philosophy book and I think has helped me with my thinking. 

I recall Uncle Tony told me once that the only attribute the Lord distributed fairly was intelligence, not looks, strength, etc. I asked Uncle Tony why he would say that. Uncle Tony said, “Because intelligence in the only attribute that everyone thinks they received more than their fair share.”

  EXTRAORDINARY PERSON OF THE WEEK

I was fortunate to know Greg for a number of decades and I believe the world is in need of people like Greg.

Gregory W. Anderson

September 26, 1948 – April 30, 2020

Greg joined the Michigan State Police in 1970. During his time with the MSP, he had a successful career in the Narcotics Division eventually retiring as Detective Sargent. 

Greg served on the Crime Prevention Advisory board of Farmington Hills, Farmington Hills Police Benevolent Association, Crime Stoppers and the Southeastern Michigan Chiefs of Police Association. He was also a certified fraud examiner with the National Association of Certified Fraud Examiners and was on National Anti-Fraud Boards.  Greg had been a lecturer for numerous organizations, including the FBI and provided testimony in state and federal cases. Greg appeared on NBC Nightly News, Geraldo, American Greed and Focus Detroit.  Greg was the recipient of the Guiding Light Award and was a Distinguished Clown for the Detroit Thanksgiving Parade for 25 years. 

Greg had many passions, but the one closest to his heart was being a part of The Rainbow Connection for 35 years. As a past President and Board Member, he had the opportunity to be involved in making dreams come true for Michigan children with life threating illnesses. He was so proud to be part of such an amazing group of people dedicated to working tirelessly to grant wishes for terminally ill children and supporting their families. 

Greg retired in 2016 as the Vice President of Corporate and Financial Investigations for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan after 35 years of service. His department was the first of its kind in the United States to aggressively pursue and help prosecute perpetrators of fraud and was recognized by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid as “one of the best, if not the best healthcare fraud Special Investigative units in the United States”.

  1. The before and after of earth pic made me think of climate change. And what’s happening in my part of the world with the fires in California. We’ve never had fires like this before in all my and my mom’s lives (that covers about 100 years). Trump’s policies are exacerbating the climate problem.

    Maybe you need a closeup.
