Three Things To Inspire Your Weekend (9)


Quote of the day:
Get love, become love, and share love, or die trying.
-Nityananda Das

Nadirah Muhammad (pictured right), a dance teacher in Detroit's West Side Academy, donated one of her kidneys to her student-18 yr old A’Ja Booth. She has been hailed as a hero, but the teacher insists that she only did what she knew she had to do.

American street artist from Baltiore, David "Nanook" Cogdill, travelled to Liberia to create a welcoming mural for a school that had been damaged by riots during the Ebola outbreak, with funding from German Agro Action, one of the organizations that helped rehabilitate the school.

The Canal & River Trust, which preserves over 2,000 miles of waterways throughout England and Wales, has created lanes exclusively for waterfowl in London, Birmingham, and Manchester according to CityMetric. It is a temporary initiative as part of the Trust’s “Share the Space, Drop your Pace” campaign, which encourages awareness among people -- and now, animals -- using the narrow pathways.


Have a cheerful weekend!

  44. The ducks lane is a cheery thought. But they won't even realize they have a lane! Lol

    The teacher's action was really amazing!
