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.

Very valuable information.

IOTD …. Image of the day, #390 …. “If only …. The Joy of Children”!!


~~November 19, 2015~~ 


We all know the reality.

We all know what happened.

We all know how “life” took Lady Diana from us.

We  know this has been photo-shopped.

Doesn’t it look perfect?

We have all wished this tragedy away. Now, as William and Catherine have started their family, we can’t help but wonder ….

If only …..





A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here:


IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

To start the day …. “Blog Tour Award: Thank you, Dear Kitty, Some Blog”!!!


~~March 30, 2015~~ 

It Is What It Is” has been nominated for the Blog Tour Award by an awesome blogger, Dear Kitty. Some blog.

~You can find her here~



Pass the award on to four other bloggers. Tell them the rules and a specific Monday to post. Answer four questions about your creative process which lets other bloggers and visitors know what inspires you to do what you do.

Compose a one-time post on a specific Monday. Today is March 30, 3015. (date given by your nominator).

If you please, choose the next Monday …. which would be convenient for you. 


1. What I’m working on at the moment?

At this moment in time, I’m following several topics related to human rights. I work on different themes and topics. Every day I do “Image Of The Day” and “Thoughts for Today“. Like many bloggers, my topics vary. I try to be on the look out for world events and decisions that may affect those who need a voice.

2. How does my work differ from others in my genre?

“My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is “eclectic” – a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I’m interested in news – reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse – the “wrongly” affected.”

“Wrongly affected” includes minorities, animals, homeless, the forgotten.

I also post a MEDICAL CORNER where medical conditions are explained at a level that the lay person can understand and relate to.

3. Why do I write and create what I do?

I started blogging because I retired from a full time job and had plenty of time on my hands. Through the help of a very dear friend, I discovered this wonderful world of blogging. I found it to be an amazing experience.

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone “out there” who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense.

4. How does my writing and creative process work?

I don’t have a set creative process. I have general ideas and the pulse of world events, special celebrations, new music videos, old music videos and topic I find while surfing the net or going through my Facebook feed provide the inspiration to what I blog about.

Ideas and topics lead to more ideas and topics. There are times when I want to cover so much that I literally don’t know which one to work on.



I would like to nominate the following four fellow bloggers. If you like doing it and it is possible, you may post on this by Monday April 13 …..

(there is a Schedule for a certain day option in WordPress)

1. “Digital Gatherings

2. “Underground Energy” – Lisa

3. “Tell Me About It” – Michelle Marie

4. “Good Time Stories” – Coach
