Welcome to the “We are the World Blogfest” (#WATWB ). The #WATWB was inspired by a simple conversation about how all the negativity on social media was weighing on us. Wanting to make a difference we decided to try to do our part to infuse social media with all the good stories that are out there. We hope to share the stories that show kindness, compassion, hope, overcoming challenges and in general, the impressive resilience of the human spirit. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heart-warming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit. The last Friday of every month bloggers will share their stories led by five co-hosts, this month’s co-hosts are Lizbeth Hartz, Inderpreet Uppal, Shilpa Garg, Damyanti Biswas, and Roshan Radhakrishnan please visit them and share the love!

“Every act of kindness is a piece of love we leave behind.” ~ Paul Williams

With many cities and countries going back into lockdown it’s often difficult to see the positivity that is going on out in the world. Sometimes when you least expect it you see that the biggest gifts often come in the smallest packages…meet Cavanaugh Bell.

Bullying has always existed and many of us have had first hand experience that at times has even left physical and emotional scars. When seven-year-old Cavanaugh Bell went through being bullied he reacted differently, he reacted with love and hope….check out his story below.

“There is nothing better in life than being a late bloomer. Success can happen at any time and at any age. You can have a spiritual awakening and discover a new side of yourself. And best of all, love can happen at any age.” ~ Salma Hayek, actress

Where is the unwritten law that says if you’re past “XX” years old it’s too late for you to reach your goals or do what you love? I’ve been blessed to have people in my life who haven’t let anything stop them from following their dreams, especially not their age.  One thing I have learned from them is if you want something badly enough you will find a way to make it happen, you may have to approach it differently, but with age comes wisdom that can help you along your journey!

These seniors are living proof that it’s never too late to learn, to grow and to succeed!

At 80 years young, Ernestine Shepherd defies the stereotype of what it is to be a body builder. Ernestine after making a promise to her sister has dedicated her days to bodybuilding, setting records and empowering other women of all ages to get into the gym. Spending more than 30 hours each week training she has earned the nickname “Granny Six-Pack”.

At 81, Masako Wakamiya from Kanagawa, Japan, was frustrated by the lack of game apps for senior citizens. She decided to take matters into her own hands, taught herself how to code and created her own game app called Hinadan, inspired by a traditional Japanese doll festival. Now at 84, self-described “IT evangelist and digital creator” is empowering other senior citizens to make the most of technology. Goes to show that you’re never too old to learn technology!
