HURRICANE MARIA

SEPTEMBER 20, 2017

Generators are still humming.

Candles are still flickering.

Homes are still being repaired.

Puerto Rico was hit by Hurricane María exactly six months ago today and the U.S. territory is still struggling to recover from the strongest storm to hit the island in nearly a century.

Hurricane María is regarded as the worst natural disaster on record in Puerto Rico.

The tenth-most intense Atlantic hurricane on record and the most intense tropical cyclone worldwide of 2017, María was the thirteenth named storm, eighth consecutive hurricane, fourth major hurricane, second Category 5 hurricane, and the deadliest storm of the hyperactive 2017 Atlantic hurricane season.

You see it’s getting late
Oh, please don’t hesitate
Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place
For you and me, you just wait and see

Put a little love in your heart

DUNBLANE SCHOOL MASSACRE

~Dunblane Primary School~

‘We want you to know change can happen’

The Dunblane school massacre took place at Dunblane Primary School near Stirling, Stirlingshire, Scotland, on 13 March 1996, when Thomas Hamilton shot dead 16 children and one teacher before killing himself.

It remains the deadliest mass shooting in British history.

Twenty-two years after the deadliest mass shooting in British history, survivors of the Dunblane Primary School massacre are sharing words of compassion – and caution – to students in Parkland, Florida.

The British survivors sent their letter on the 22nd anniversary of the school shooting in Dunblane, Scotland, where 16 first-grade students and one teacher were killed. They expressed sympathy for the students in Parkland, Florida, and urged them to keep up their fight for stricter gun control.

“We have watched and listened with tremendous admiration as you have spoken out for what you believe should happen now,” they wrote.

“We want you to know that change can happen.”

The Dunblane and Parkland shootings bear striking similarities: Both were carried out by one man with a gun, and both resulted in 17 deaths. Both sparked outrage in their respective countries, as well as calls for gun safety reform.

In Scotland, at least, those calls were effective:

Just over a year after the shooting, the UK banned all private handguns completely. There has not been a single school shooting since.

“Continue to remind everyone of exactly what happened at your school and of the devastation caused by just one person with one legally-owned gun,” the letter reads. “Never let anyone forget.”

The Parkland students’ activism has already sparked some reforms, including the passage of a modest gun control bill in the Florida state legislature. The students have also met with Drumpf for a listening session in the White House, and organized two nationwide protests in favor of gun control.

Keep Your Eye On The … ?????


Indeed … quite the incredible week!! I’m spent, tired and exhausted! Mostly I am sad for the country that I knew … even if, when and how this FIDIOT is gone, the damage will be too great.Wondering if America will return to it’s supposed state of greatness!!

Filosofa's Word

There is very little news today that doesn’t carry the name ‘Trump’.  It makes it very difficult to concentrate, to focus, to find anything ELSE in the news! Trump had a very busy week firing people last week, spent most of the weekend spewing garbage through his tweeting thumbs, and put down virtually every individual or group he could think of who wasn’t 100% in his camp.  Let us recap …

He fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, basically for two reasons: 1) last year Tillerson astutely called Trump a ‘moron’, and 2) Tillerson spoke out against Russia, saying that a nerve agent used on a former Russian spy in Britain last week “clearly came from Russia”, and that Russia is “an irresponsible force of instability in the world, acting with open disregard for the sovereignty of other states and the life of their citizens.”  The moral of this…
