Alister Macintyre7,220My copy, of this circle of people interested in our Economy and how come it is in a mess, is over 600 people, but I can only share 500.  Some day, I will split the people here into smaller circles of secondary interests, or maybe installments.2012-06-15 03:15:52501314
Alan Bombria5,910This is my atheist/humanist/freethinker circle.  People are in this circle not just for being "good without god", but for being critical thinkers, contending for their position without being contentious, or just plain posting interesting or thought provoking material.  This is the circle I maintain the most meticulously.  Enjoy!2012-06-10 15:48:58267406

Amy McLeod1,986Ok, I have recently expanded my articulate and engaged circle with circles other people have given out of people that are interested in or actively participating in the Occupy movement. I'm not guaranteeing everyone I'm sharing here, as 900 odd people is a bit much to go through. These are people who would normaly be all over the political spectrum, but all interested in the the problems with out of control finance and it's corruption of goverment, they will certainly hold many views totally contrary to yours on many issues, but on this issue they are the 99%. I can't even guarantee that everyone in this circle is what I've stated above, I just took on trust the circles that have been shared to me and added them to people I had circled as articulate and engaged before Occupy took off, some of them may even be incomprehensible and disinterested, feel free to sort through them yourself if you have time, but I'd urge you not to exclude anyone just because their views are the polar opposite of yours on other issues. 99% is more important than any other divide and on this one thing both left and right should be united.First 500 are here.Amy McLeod shared a circle with you.2011-10-19 15:12:51500301

People are squinting to block out the sun
complaining or soaking it up
praying for rain the next minute
for a scorched earth
what's it worth
enough is never
enough
let's have a little moan
put the world to right
sit back and watch it all slide by.

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about their religion;
respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.
Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend,
even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself.
Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like... more »

Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.___

Fifty thousand unstoppable watts.

Plussers - Help Me Brighten Fellow Plusser Brian Moore's Day...  

Seeking the Power of the Plus for a Charitable Cause (and it will cost you nothing to participate)!   #PlusSupportForBrian   Not mentioning Brian's G+ name so that this has more meaning as a community...more on that if you read below.

I noticed a vague comment recently in the 'Nearby' section of G+ mobile. "Only sadness today," it stated. Without knowing more about Brian Moore's situation I commented back, "Chin up and head forward today."  A couple other wonderful Kansas City plussers wished Brian well, too, yet his response back to us seemed more dreary (see pic below of the post).  As I learned more about Brian from the little he has posted on his stream, I discovered his wife is suffering from Stage 4 Colon Cancer and as anyone whose experienced a lovedone g... more »

Plussers - Help Me Brighten Fellow Plusser Brian Moore's Day...  

Seeking the Power of the Plus for a Charitable Cause (and it will cost you nothing to participate)!   #PlusSupportForBrian   Not mentioning Brian's G+ name so that this has more meaning as a community...more on that if you read below.

I noticed a vague comment recently in the 'Nearby' section of G+ mobile. "Only sadness today," it stated. Without knowing more about Brian Moore's situation I commented back, "Chin up and head forward today."  A couple other wonderful Kansas City plussers wished Brian well, too, yet his response back to us seemed more dreary (see pic below of the post).  As I learned more about Brian from the little he has posted on his stream, I discovered his wife is suffering from Stage 4 Colon Cancer and as anyone whose experienced a loved one going through this, you suffer with them.  He has been documenting the hardships he's going through and clearly seeking an outlet to express this struggle he and his wife share together, posting updates on his wife, sharing pictures and trying to stay strong.  Yet it's obvious he feels alone so I thought to myself: 

How awesome would it be to see his post filled to the max (500 comments) with positive support, kind words and acknowledgment that he and his wife are not alone in this.  After all, its a very real human experience we all can relate to yet can feel so isolated by.

Will you help me send well wishes to Brian Moore by commenting on one of his most recent posts, specifically, with positive comments?  Comment on this post here with words of support: http://goo.gl/UhOCe and/or RESHARE this post to to spread the word and help make this possible.

Notice I am not using a mention of Brian Moore's name.  I don't want this to be from me, rather I'd like to see this as a charitable cause from a whole community together, The Google+ Community.  I'm just a channel and would ask that you help channel this with me by commenting on Brian's post, resharing or both.

So who is Brian Moore?  Do you want to know more? See profile here: http://goo.gl/lG9jE.  To be honest I do not know him personally - the primary reason I want this to be a community initiative.  Based on his profile pic he obviously has a sense of humor lol Zombie Outbreak Response Team :)   Since learning of his wife's illness in a late stage, he has been open about his ordeal on G+.  He hasn't posted much until recently - maybe no more than 25 posts. Furthermore, he has only one person in his circles and only 6 have circled him back.  IMO this even more reason to send him well wishes as part of a larger community to let him know he's not alone and that this is a wonderful place to be.  Have you noticed the trending theme here?  Community.   :)

Again, lets send well wishes to Brian Moore as a community.  Please use his recent post (http://goo.gl/UhOCe) and share kind words of support, encouragement and strenght.  

P.S.  I woke up today feeling compelled to make a positive impact, no matter how big or small, once learning more about Brian Moore.  Feel free to re-post any of this in your own words as well rather than reshare if you'd like.  If you do, use the hashtag #PlusSupportForBrian .  I'm not concerned with this specific post being shared numerous times as much as I'd like to see his specific post filled with positive support.  

Sending out a few mentions of those I interact with frequently or as of recently to ask for your help in doing something great together:
