Announcement …. “‘Tis The Season … “

ON A LIGHTER NOTE

I’m going to be away from this spot, “It Is What It Is“, for a few days. I won’t have full access to a PC or laptop.

I still have the capacity to keep an eye on what happens in the blogosphere while I’m away.

I’m not able to just disconnect, particularly with what is going on in our world at this time.

There are so many problems, issues, conflicts, injustices, bigotry, destruction, killing, wars ….. We need to stay informed and educated about “happenings“.

I will leave you today with a message.

As noted above, we won’t find peace until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, as Mr. Sweitzer noted.

‘Tis the season …

We are all in this together. Be kind to on another.

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.

TIME-LAPSE DRAWING

I found out about this awesome talented painter last night. I was traversing through the highways of social media and there is was. This awesome video.

There’s not much information about the artist except the link to her social media.

I think that this is so perfect to address the current world issues, the wars, the conflicts, the killings, the terror. World Peace Day was “celebrated” a few days ago.

We all crave peace.

Let’s at least try.

Enjoy!

Emerson student Jody Steel draws on thigh, gains fame

By Christopher Muther GLOBE STAFF

Students, ignore everything your parents, teachers, and professors have told you and listen carefully: Doodling in class can make you a star.

At least, that is what it has done for Emerson student Jody Steel, whose remarkable drawings, usually on her right thigh, have won her buzz, hundreds of thousands of views online, and job offers.

Since starting at Emerson College in 2011, the Florida native has been using her leg as a canvas on which to produce portraits of Bryan Cranston as Walter White in “Breaking Bad,” Radiohead singer Thom Yorke, and “Don Jon” actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Celebrity crushes, favorite television shows, and an occasional cat have found their way onto her leg as she carefully draws with a Pilot Precise V5 pen during class lectures.

The delicate shadings of her work bring to mind a series of pop-culture chiaroscuro sketches. They are documented on her iPhone and then lost to the ages with the help of soap and water.

“Completely unexpected,” Steel said of the attention. “Obviously you always hope your art will be seen, but I wasn’t expecting it to go so big and international.”

As her doodled masterpieces went viral, they became international curiosities. The story was picked up by websites in France and Britain and in newspapers across Europe. Now a website in Brazil is touting her talents. She has posted many of these stories to her Facebook fan page.

Something to think about … “The Office of the POTUS”!!


Disgrace

~~March 6, 2015~~ 

RESPECT FOR THE OFFICE OF PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

“The office of the President, no matter who sits in the oval office, deserves our respect. If we so belittle the office through excessive partisanship we lessen the authority that the office deserves.

The President of the United States is our leader, our chief executive, the person who the rest of the world looks to as representing the United States.

How far do we take partisanship before it becomes demeaning to the office? Is our political system so warped that what is best for the country becomes less important than partisan gain? The phrase the loyal opposition, is important to consider, in that it implies that a person from the opposition party is still loyal to their oath and their nation while still opposing when it is appropriate what the opposition party or in this case the President of the United States has done.

Is anything fair game? Is it okay to lie about them? Is it okay to personally attack the wife of the President or his or her children, or even the dog?

What are the limitations?”

My thoughts on this topic are very personal to me and I understand that all are entitled to their own. I don’t mean for this post to be a political one. 

I was always taught that we needed to “respect the office” of the President of the United States. 

Without bringing politics and different ideologies into this, can anyone really say that this office has been respected since 2008 as is had always been before?

I wonder ….
