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. 

BY SUNNIVIE BRYDUM
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.

Something to think about …. “Innocence Lost …. Sad”!!

WAR CHILD

Little girl, trying to sleep in your bed
don’t listen to the sound of the bombs nearby
just close your eyes and try not to cry
and let your brother sing you a lullaby.
And don’t listen to the noise of the guns
as the bullets flash by your door, don’t cry
just think of the peace found in sleep
while your brother sings you a lullaby.
Little girl, as you sleep in your bed
when you dream, try not to dream of the day
when soldiers came with their guns
and took your father away.
And when you wake up to a new day
looking for the sun, through the dust and smoke
try to find some hope in that terrible place
as you and your brother strive to cope.
Little girl, war is the world of grown ups
and there is nothing you can do
even if you tell them of your fear and sorrow
no one will listen to you.
But when the war is over and done
and you no longer hear an exploding shell
maybe your young life will be a better place
more like Heaven and less like Hell.

MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER …. IF ONLY!

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.

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

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!”

Resonating Thoughts #2 …. “Declare PEACE: Someone Has to Do It”!!


DeclarePeace

~~November 16, 2015~~ 

SOMEONE HAS TO DO IT

Declare World Peace

One syllable, five letters, containing so much grace.
You’d think each single soul would find it easy to embrace.
Whispered in the darkness by those who live in fear.
Shouted from the mountaintops for everyone to hear.

Elusive as the wind that blows it often slips away.
Leaving in its shadow, pain and sorrow in the fray.
Let us join together as we call for war to cease.
Let us all agree to all declare we want world peace.

In every corner of the world in every language known.
Speak the words of peace in every country, every zone.
Add your voice until we drown the noise of hate and war.
Until the sound of peace becomes a loud and thunderous roar.

Something to think about …. “For any Important Decision in Life”!!


Relax

~~October 17, 2015~~ 

IMPORTANT DECISIONS

“We face decisions throughout life.

Most of them are relatively insignificant, while some affect others in ways we may not realize, in what I’ve called our “life footprint.”

Some of those seemingly small decisions may snowball over time, carrying more and more importance as their consequences emerge.

The majority of decisions we make impact our life course.”

Susan Krauss Whitbourne Ph.D.

At the end of the day …. “Refugee Crisis: What’s The World’s Responsibility?”!!


Ref1

~~October 7, 2015~~ 

REFUGEE CRISIS

“the world’s most serious issue”

“It feels like it is breaking Europe”

GoldSwirl

Rachel Maddow explains why the European refugee crisis is “the world’s most serious issue”

A disturbing image of a young Syrian child lying face-down on a beach after the boat his family was fleeing to Greece on capsized, has jolted the world’s collective attention on the long-simmering crisis of refugees desperately fleeing the Syrian civil war and on Wednesday’s edition of her show, Rachel Maddow examined the different ways European countries have reacted to the arrival of thousands of families seeking refuge within their borders.

“It feels like it is breaking Europe,” Maddow admitted to her guest, David Miliband, the former British foreign secretary, and now president and CEO of the International Rescue Committee. The host noted the contrast between the governmental reactions of Europe’s first and second largest economies, Germany and England. Germany has agreed to take in 800,000 asylum seekers just in the remainder of 2015, while the British prime minister recently denied that taking in more refugees would be helpful.

The fact that the idea of a refugee, the status of someone who has a well-founded fear of persecution, which is the definition of a refugee and international law, that’s being muddied, that’s being diluted, it’s being undermined in this talk of — well, migrants who chose to come for economic reasons.

~Refugee Crisis~

What’s The World’s Responsibility?

~Published on Sep 8, 2015~

The number of Syrian refugees going to Europe has been rising but they are just one part of the worst refugee crisis since World War II, and wealthy countries have been criticized for not doing more to open their doors to asylum seekers.
