'Balaenoptera'

 

When you shared this with me my heart sang a familiar song,

not a song I had heard in this life but a song I had been searching for,

your song, a song I recognized across eternity,

your song, in tune with my soul.

He thought I was “Just” and old car … an instrument of Hope

May 17, 2015

We are all capable of being instruments of good.  We are all able to make the world a better place.  We simply have to choose the road toward good.  We can’t wait for opportunities.  We must sometimes make opportunities.  I am thankful to be more than “Just an old car.”  I am and have been an opportunity.

Mario Burton & Grandma’s Hands International

April 3, 2015

Free2Be Radio brings you a conversation with Mario Burton the founder of Grandma's Hands International, Inc.  Listen as Mario tells us what it was like for him growing up gay and black in Alabama.  We talk about family structures, how religion may influence how we interact with our extended family members, the transition Mario made to living in Colorado and his upcoming move back to the South.  

 

Grandma’s Hands International is an ode to Bill Wither's classic R&B song "Grandma's Hands" which speaks of the impactful ways that grandmothers influence our lives. More specifically, it is an ode to Mario Burton’s own grandmother who has deeply affected his life, as well as the millions of grandmothers across the world who are raising their grandchildren as their own, still working in their ’70s and ’80s, and who haven’t given up the idea that their two hands can make a difference. These grandmothers work diligently and actively in order to contribute to the betterment of their families and communities.

Through partnerships and active community involvement, GHI works to influence the world and the inhabitants of this planet in ways that are meaningful and impactful. The organization will start and manage social enterprises in order to help make organizations and individuals more financially self-sufficient; will provide assistance to communities in need; and will work to contribute to education, human rights, health, sustainability, and other issues that impact the world on a global scale.

At Free2Be we work to create an inclusive and compassionate society by supporting the LGBTQ community and other underrepresented communities as we provide direct social services to support survivors of violence.   Your financial support helps us help others.

James Robinson is your host at Free2Be Radio.
