DAY OF REMEMBRANCE

Transgender Day of Remembrance 2015

Those We’ve Lost

At least 81 transgender people were murdered worldwide this year — and those are just the victims whose deaths were reported.

NOVEMBER 20 2015

Today marks the 16th annual Transgender Day of Rememberance, after the first event was organized by Gwendolyn Ann Smith in Allston, Mass., to memorialize Rita Hester — a trans woman of color killed in 1998.

Every year since, growing numbers of trans people and advocates worldwide take a moment to pause and remember the countless lives lost around the globe to transphobic violence.

The somber occasion serves as a memorial event in which trans people and allies can mourn their dead, celebrate the lives they lived and as a popular hashtag in the wake of unabated anti-trans violence proclaims, #SayHerName.

As the names listed in the graphics demonstrate, certain nations — the United States and Brazil — have particularly acute problems with fatal transphobic violence. The number of trans women killed this year in the U.S., for instance, is nearly double that of the total killed last year.

But it’s also worth noting that in many countries around the world, no formal system exists to report the deaths of trans people, and repressive societies combined with oppressive policing worldwide often give trans people good cause to be wary of law-enforcement officials. 

So while we mourn those whose names are listed below, take a moment to memorialize those whose names we will never know — because they, too, had lives, and loves, and passions that were extinguished because of hate.

To start the day …. “Post It: Handicapped Parking Prank”!!

HANDICAPPED PARKING PRANK … LESSON LEARNED?

Tiago Fonseca isn’t speaking Spanish.

It sounds Portuguese to me but I am no expert.

There are some words that can be understood if you speak Spanish. Sometimes understanding words aren’t needed to get a message across.

This is a perfect example of actions speaking louder than words.

As an owner of a handicapped permit, I’ve seen this too frequently. As I have gotten older, my body is showing the “wear and tear” of aging. I’m fortunate enough to still have comfortable mobility. I know that there are others in worse condition.

The message I see is that these “reserved spots” need to be respected. There are fines and maybe towing.

However, nothing better than this prank.

(If anyone understands this language, please, write the basic message in the comments. Thank you.)

A disabled parking permit, also known as a handicapped permit, disabled placard, disabled badge and “Blue Badge” in the European Union, is displayed upon parking a vehicle carrying a person whose mobility would be otherwise significantly impaired by one or more of age, illness, disability or infirmity.

The permit allows exemption from street-parking charges in some places and is used to park within dedicated disabled parking spaces reserved for people who have satisfied requirements to receive the placard.

~~ABUSE~~
The abuse and/or misuse of disabled parking permits has been identified as a major problem in the US, with some estimates indicating the majority seen on the street are used or obtained fraudulently. The substantial privilege and convenience granted by a permit provides a major incentive to use one illegally or obtain one fraudulently, and medical privacy law often confounds attempts to identify truly disabled individuals from abuses.

Abuse most often occurs under the following circumstances

A non-disabled driver using the vehicle, plate or placard of another person who is disabled without transporting that person. This often occurs with family members of disabled people.
Forging a physician’s signature on the form submitted to the motor vehicle department.
Bribing a physician to submit the form for the motor vehicle department.
Feigning or exaggerating symptoms of a medical condition in order to convince a physician to submit the form.

At the end of the day …. The Piano Guys: “The Mission”!!


~November 12, 2014~~

Set in Brazil with the incredible backdrop of Christ the Redeemer and the Iguazu Falls, The Piano Guys combine the melody of the heartfelt hymn of praise “How Great Thou Art” with one of the most beautiful melodies ever written – the theme from the movie “The Mission“.

PG11

Only one month after their cover of Disney’s Frozen made a splash on YouTube, the Piano Guys have revealed the latest in their line of unique cover versions – this time, a religious pairing of the well-known hymn, How Great Thou Art, masterfully woven with Morricone’s poignant oboe tune from The Mission.

Following their video filmed on the Great Wall of China, the duo have now taken their music to Brazil as part of their quest to perform at all seven Wonders of the World. This time, the pair are performing near the Christ the Redeemer statue in Brazil, in front of the 275 waterfalls that make up the Iguazu Falls.

PG3

The Piano Guys are an American musical group consisting of Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, Paul Anderson, and Al van der Beek.

They gained popularity through YouTube, where they posted piano and cello renditions of popular songs and classical music. Schmidt and Nelson’s music is accompanied by professional-quality videos shot and edited by Paul Anderson. 

Paul Anderson owned a piano shop in St. George, Utah. He met musician Jon Schmidt as the latter walked in to ask if he could practice there for an upcoming concert. Months later, Paul Anderson and Tel Stewart (then just for fun) started making videos together with Jon Schmidt. It was not too long after that they did their first collaboration with Jon Schmidt, Steven Sharp Nelson, and Al Van Der Beek as the studio and music technician. After the five of them started collaborating the group really started to take off, producing a music video each week and posting it to YouTube.

“OUR VISION IS TO CREATE MUSIC AND VIDEOS THAT INSPIRE & UPLIFT.
WHATEVER WE DO, WE PUT OUR HEART AND SOULS INTO EVERY NOTE AND FRAME.”

~~The Mission/How Great Thou Art~~

Wonder of The World 2 of 7

~~Published on Apr 2, 2014~~

Story behind the video & song

We’ve set an ambitious goal to film in front of all Seven Wonders of the World. We started with the Great Wall of China.
As our tour of Brazil approached we set our sights on our next Wonder: Christ the Redeemer. This incredible piece of art soars 10 stories in the air, stretches 100 feet wide and weighs 1.4 million pounds (630,000 kg). But even more impressive is that it was built in the 1920’s on a peak of a sheer 2,300 ft. (700 meter) cliff overlooking Rio de Janeiro.

Not far from this inspiring statue are the Iguazu Falls — a natural Wonder of the World. Made up of 275 waterfalls that stretch across 1.7 miles (2.7 km), to match the amount of water that flows down these falls you would need 2 million people to each pour a quart of water every second.

As we considered what piece of music would be worthy of such incomparable locations we looked to songs that have been composed or used to praise Jesus Christ, for whom the statue was built and who billions believe created all the natural wonders of this world. We wanted to combine the melody of the heartfelt hymn of praise “How Great Thou Art” with one of the most beautiful melodies ever written — the theme from the movie “The Mission” (“Gabriel’s Oboe.”) “The Mission” is a movie that powerfully depicts the lives of men that lay down their lives for others. It was also filmed at Iguazu Falls. “How Great Thou Art” praises God and all that He has done for His children on this Earth. The two harmonize so beautifully with each other, both musically and thematically. As we played these pieces in front of the Christ Statue and Iguazu Falls we felt an overwhelming sense of wonder, peace, and joy.

This music video is not meant to exclude anyone that does not believe in God. We hope that it instead promotes spiritual feelings that can be felt by all — gratitude for a beautiful Earth, for life, and for joy.

A wise man once said, “If we thought of life as a gift, we might not demand nearly as much from it. And if we lived more graciously, giving of ourselves more freely to the well-being of others, many of our personal concerns would disappear, and life would become easier for all.”

We respect all beliefs and opinions, but we hope that in the comments everyone can set aside religious differences and instead focus on building each other up — through gratitude, inspiration, kindness and mutual respect.

Thank you so much for watching! We are grateful for you!
