Dead Crow Comedy Event / Benefit 9/10/17

 

It's easy to feel discouraged and saddened by recent displays or hatred and bigotry (ignorance). If I've learned anything over the past couple of years, though, it's that it's infinitely more important to focus on the seed of the positive often found in what we see as negative. It is important to know that for every white supremacist filled with fear and pain (that's what that is) there are countless people filled with compassion and empathy. 

There is still more love than hate. There is still more good than bad. We still have more to be grateful for than we do to commiserate about. Those dark places and spaces can provide us motivation and fuel for good and for change but we must not give them our energy or stay in those places for too long. It's ok to step into that heavy darkness and to feel it and to use it to propel you forward into changing what you can but do not stay there. Staying there makes you part of the darkness and you are more powerful than that.

This show will be a chance for kind, caring and compassionate people, truth seekers and change makers to come together and feel that energy from each other and know you are not alone. This will be a chance for 100 people to laugh together and enjoy humor and the present moment knowing that the money you paid to get in will help to provide meals, homes and resources for people who have lost literally everything and some who never had anything to lose.

Most of the individuals and families who come through the refugee resettlement programs have spent the better part of two decades in refugee camps with dirt floors and tarps for roofs without running water or electricity. Many of them were born into the camps and have never known anything but that. Interfaith Refugee Ministry in Wilmington sets up refugee families with a nice safe place to live, groceries, furniture, pots, pans and plates, English lessons, rides to job interviews, help with bus routes, tutors for kids and so much more. This is an agency that is working all day every day to make a real and tangible difference for displaced people right here where we all live. Like all good causes, they are underfunded and on a shoe string budget. These extra donations make a big impact.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND YOUR LOVE. 
WE ARE ALREADY GREAT AND OUR DIVERSITY MAKES US SO.

  • No Logos = Flat or Really Bad. Pretty much unrideable! A good time to get other things done.
  • 1 Logo = Rideable but not good form. Might not be worth the time or effort but there could be a few okay waves.
  • 2 Logos = Could be fun. Rideable and a few okay waves to be ridden.
  • 3 Logos = Fun! Better than the average day. Worth paddling out depending on the surface conditions.
  • 4 Logos = Really fun. Paddle out if you can. One of the better days of the year.
  • 5 Logos = Rare Epic or All Time conditions. Quitting work or skipping school is an option but not encouraged. Why are you still reading the report! Paddle out now!

Please read the report description for a better explanation of all factors regarding the waves. We report conditions in "A moment in time" and conditions can change right after the report or between reports. Don't kill the messenger. Email Mother Nature for changing the conditions if you miss it. Thanks for checking WBlivesurf.com. The only report in town that checks the surf 4 times daily with our feet in the sand during rain, sleet, snow, or shine.
