The Social Poets: New Denny Lyon Designs: 11 September 2001 Anniversary Yard Sign, T-Shirt: From Denny: Today is a special day of remembrance here in America and many parts of the world. I created this design for my reader friends over at the Pentagon, White House, CIA, State Department and FBI for this anniversary to let them know I was thinking of them.
Proceeds go to funding my charity for homeless female military veterans. Currently, there are only a couple of half-way houses in North Carolina - woefully underfunded - desperately trying to address the problem of over 5,000 homeless women vets. The majority are young single mothers.
So, I'm raising funds using my art, creativity and photos for the effort, designing for a wide variety of products over at Cafe Press: clothing, technology, signage, home decor, drink ware, stationery and more. Please take a look at Denny Lyon Gifts and express your support for the fallen - and those still healing.

The Social Poets: 2012 DNC Complete Speech: First Lady Michelle Obama, Hard Work More Important Than Income

The Social Poets: 2012 DNC Complete Speech: First Lady Michelle Obama, Hard Work More Important Than Income: From Denny: This is the speech touted by analysts as flawlessly and passionately delivered. Michelle Obama is definitely President Obama's best asset in this close election. Her popularity soars higher than his by a long shot.
She is also known as the Hugger In Chief, slowing down receiving lines and event visits to stop and hug everyone who wants that close and kindly connection. Kids love her.
Of course, her aides all groan as she takes far too long (their estimation) to make it down the way to start an event. Awesome Hugging is quickly becoming her signature. I find it delightful in a time when society is always too much in a hurry to stop and really notice one person at a time.
It will be interesting to see, decades from now, how her hugging visits affected and inspired some of those kids to go into politics or public service. Remember, it was President Bill Clinton that met President John Kennedy in person when he was a teen. That meeting inspired Clinton to go into public service.
Philosopher Wise Owl says: Create your niche, forget about what the other guy gets, be happy!

|Hurricane Vampire Survivor Mousepad|
After all, your brain is geared up to engage with technology and suddenly finds itself in total withdrawal. And, it's a good thing that humor was created. It's the best weapon in the human arsenal for survival.
I went off the grid for three days - and hot sweaty nights - during the very long week of Hurricane Isaac...
