Something to Think About …. “🤔 It’s Empathy, It’s Human 🤔 …. “!!


~EMPATHY~

PUTTING MYSELF IN THEIR SHOES

the action of understanding, being aware of, being sensitive to and vicariously experiencing the feelings, thoughts and experience of another of either the past or present without having the feelings, thoughts, and experience fully communicated in an objectively explicit manner.

Also : the capacity for this.

Thoughts for Today, #519 …. “🤨 Aunt Lydia (The Handmaid’s Tale) …. If the Shoe Fits 🤨 …. “!!


BLine

This is not being mean or insulting.

This is stating a fact of the current state of affairs in this country.

Anyone following the Hulu series ‘The Handmaid’s Tale‘ knows what this meme stands for.

Careful, America, the line your are touting is quite dangerous!

Puerto Ricans Strike on May Day

~WILL GATHER AGAIN THIS YEAR~

The people of Puerto Rico are beyond being tired!

They are organizing to express their feelings toward the overall status of the Island as well as the way the after effects of Hurricane María have been dealt with.

There are some towns in the Island that still do not have restored electric power.

The 2018 hurricane season is around the corner.

No other option but strike! Take to the streets!

Anger spreads across Puerto Rico over lack of basic services

Protests will block roads in Puerto Rico’s capital as May Day demonstrators angered by a long economic crisis march against looming austerity measures and demand an audit to identify those responsible for running up $70 billion in public debt.

Puerto Rico is struggling to emerge from a recession caused in part by previous administrations that for decades borrowed billions of dollars to cover budget deficits.

In June 2015 the island’s then-governor announced that the debt was unpayable, and the government has since racked up multimillion-dollar defaults on government-issued bonds that were popular because they were triple tax-exempt.

Puerto Rico’s Senate has ordered government agencies to explain why tens of thousands of people in rural areas remain without power or appropriate shelter as anger grows about the lack of basic services more than seven months after hurricanes Irma and María.

The agencies have been given five days to present a plan on how and when they will address the needs of rural towns, an order that came as police in a small mountain town blocked power crews from leaving Tuesday. Joining the protest was the mayor and dozens of people who noted that nearly 40% of Las Piedras’ inhabitants were still without electricity service as crews prepared to leave for another town on company orders.

“This is unfair,” 62-year-old town resident Rafael Jimenez said by phone.

“I don’t have a problem with other towns getting power because it’s a national necessity, but we need it, too.”

The standoff caught the attention of top Puerto Rico government officials and ended several hours later after the power company promised it would keep crews in Las Piedras until service is fully restored.

Justo Gonzalez, the company’ executive sub director, said in a statement that he is committed to restoring power to everyone but that blocking crews would only delay those efforts.

EARTH DAY 2018

~THERE’S A LOT DO TO STILL~

I was 20 years old in 1970.

I remember the establishment of this day. I took a summer class in college all about the environment in my country, Puerto Rico. I bought books, I read them all. I became aware of Bill McKibben (The End of Nature), Jeffrey Hollender (How To Make the World a Better Place), The Earthworks Group (50 Simple Things You Can Do series) and many more.

I was young, idealistic adult and a believer that my generation would change things.

As I look back today, it saddens me to see that I was wrong.

More than ever, there’s a lot of work to do today.

Here are some of my ‘green books’!! 

img_8875 Earth Day 1970, an event to increase public awareness of the world’s environmental problems, is celebrated in the United States for the first time.

Millions of Americans, including students from thousands of colleges and universities, participated in rallies, marches, and educational programs.

Earth Day was the brainchild of Senator Gaylord Nelson of Wisconsin, a staunch environmentalist who hoped to provide unity to the grassroots environmental movement and increase ecological awareness.

“The objective was to get a nationwide demonstration of concern for the environment so large that it would shake the political establishment out of its lethargy,” Senator Nelson said, “and, finally, force this issue permanently onto the national political agenda.”

Earth Day indeed increased environmental awareness in America, and in July of that year the Environmental Protection Agency was established by special executive order to regulate and enforce national pollution legislation.

People magazine’s annual ‘Most Beautiful‘ issue just got a facelift

P!nk appears on the cover of the magazine’s 2018 ‘Beautiful’ issue with her daughter Willow, 6, and son Jameson, 1, for a feature more focused on parenting and self-love than just the singer’s looks.

“I tell my daughter the truth,” Pink says in the story, which hits newsstands Friday, via excerpts provided to NBC’s Today. “I let her be six, but I want her to know about fairness and kindness and that you have to fight for your rights, and that sometimes girls aren’t paid as much as boys for the same job, and girls aren’t treated the same, and that they have to work harder for everything.”

Appearing on Wednesday’s Ellen, April 17, to celebrate the magazine cover, the singer joked that she “laughed out loud” when she found out she would be on the cover.
