Happy Month of May!  Stay tune for more information!



Hi I'm Margi Hope!

I'm not a writer, I am just a person trying to show the world that we can get more with "honey" then we can with "vinegar".

The purpose of America Connected is to inspire and educate people about the greatness of America and its connection with the world!

What do our programs, which have included participation by Florida's new Governor, singing with the United States Army Band, and an American Yoga Team have in common? They are all part of America Connected,and are uniquely inspired to promote extraordinary opportunities which have a positive impact both here and around the world.

We are taking the America Connected Yoga Team to Kochi, India January 31 - February 6th 2019 to show the positive view of the United States, its people, its culture and to have and share relationships with people from different societies and cultures over the long term that will lead to a greater strategic impact of cooperation. Movement is something we all have in common. Performing yoga focuses mind and body together which helps people of different backgrounds form a common bond. The beginnings of Yoga were developed by the Indus-Sarasvati civilization in Northern India over 5,000 years ago.

The positive effects of this successful strategic integration can lead to stimulation of economic growth through public diplomacy and the art of state craft.
I hope that you are as inspired as us in establishing positive influences around the world!

And although we are all different, we learn we are all the same.

Thank You to Our wonderful Sponsors!

Connecting with the World!

January 5, 2019

So Why Connect?

Isn't it more fun to have a friend versus an enemy.?  Having a personal conversation about what is important to you with someone and feeling listened to and understood is great BUT, taking the time to listen to someone else and feeling real empathy for them. helping someone else out of unconditional goodwill.  Be Genuine!  New ideas, goods, and services can benefit all of us, and of course there can be drawbacks, loss of competition, loss of wages, competition, etc.  But, sometimes it is better to connect with someone.  Remember the old adage, more friends are better then one.



What is Connection?

The dictionary defines connection as "a relationship in which a person, thing, or idea is linked or associated with something else."

So are we connected to something else? The answer is yes, we are connected to our family our friends, where we live, and where we come from.  We do not choose our first connections, we are born to a set of  connections that we did not choose.  These connections are with us forever, loose or tight, strong or weak.  We connect at first with what we are given.  What we did not choose but what we have.  As we grow our connections grow and change.  We start to connect with what we have common interests with.

As we grow and move around our connections grow with us.  We learn that we are connected with the world.  Through the internet, the information we receive through the media, social media use, and our traveling.

And although we are all different, we learn we are all the same!





We need you to help us inspire the world
