At the end of the day …. “I Am a Global Citizen”!!

 I AM A CITIZEN OF THE WORLD

I am a citizen of the world
and my home is my abode:
Rivers, lakes and valleys
are my sources of life;
Trees, birds and mountains
are my pride!
I am a citizen of the world
and my home is my abode:
Seas, fishes and oceans
are my sources of hope;
Shorelines, rocks and beaches
are my cliches!
I am a citizen of the world
and my peace is your company:
My children, relatives and friends
are my sources of strength;
Their love, care and tender touch
are my tabernacles.
I am a citizen of mankind
and the whole world is my abode.

REMEMBER WHEN?

Starbucks unveiled its new holiday design – a red cup with the green Starbucks logo – and sparked significant controversy due to its lack of Christmas symbols like reindeer and snowflakes.

Starbucks defended the blank holiday design as welcoming of people’s different stories.

How fickle are we as a society?

How short is our memory?

Is there an element of an attention span deficit?

I wonder.

At least, a young, extremely talented, young lady, HEATHER ROONEY, grasped the idea happily and worked her wonder art.

There’s still hope, I think.

I don’t mind the Starbucks cup being plain red this year – more room to decorate it with a design representing what Christmas means to me.

At the end of the day …. “Black Friday 2015 …. “!!

BLACK FRIDAY 2015

Black Friday used to be a one-day shopping event for many retailers, but over time, with Cyber Monday and Small Business Saturday coming into the mix, it’s become a big weekend-long shopping event.

With so much buzz around this shopping extravaganza, it’s not hard to buy into the circus of it all. You’ll make impulse purchases and fall into every retailers’ trap to get you to spend your small fortune in their stores. They’ll pull out all the stops to get you in their stores and then, well, I’m sure you know the rest. 

Don’t be tempted by all the bold colors in the ads that draw you in and especially the low prices that get your attention. During this year’s biggest shopping event, be a smarter shopper by following some of these rules:

~Falling Into the Black Friday Trap~

~Published on Nov 26, 2015~

Each year, Americans are spending billions in a matter of days: Black Friday weekend. And while the discounts can be pretty great — how much money are shoppers ultimately saving at the end of the day?

COCOLOCO MUSIC VIDEO

Good morning.

A little humor to start the day.

These have been trying days and continue to be. Worldwide events are affecting all of us in so many different and negative ways.

There seems to be no end in sight.

Our batteries are running out of charge, our senses are getting dull,  our hard drives are getting full.

A bit of distraction for a few minutes may help.

This is a video that my oldest grand-daughter, Angelika, showed me last night.

I hope you enjoy it. Have a great day!

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.

Very valuable information.

SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL

Why are we so quick to see the ugly …

when we stand before the beautiful?

~Hang With Friends~

And it is beautiful, too, indeed, I think some of Seth Andrews’ best work. Interesting point: rather than Seth’s dulcet baritone doing the narration, this piece presses Nathan Phelps’ deep bass intonation into service, bringing a different flavor to it, as well as a healthy dose of irony.

These are trying times.

From past history and events to present times.

It doesn’t matter where you look.

It doesn’t matter what beliefs you hold dear or follow.

It doesn’t matter who you follow.

Groups, religions, cultures, societies, races, nations.

What has changed?

What have we learned?

It’s all a mentality of “them versus us”?

Take a look.

THE LOVE OF READING

“I have sometimes dreamt … that when the Day of Judgment dawns and the great conquerors and lawyers and statesmen come to receive their rewards — their crowns, their laurels, their names carved indelibly upon imperishable marble — the Almighty will turn to Peter and will say, not without a certain envy when He sees us coming with our books under our arms:

“Look, these need no reward.

We have nothing to give them here.

They have loved reading.”

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~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!”
