How Many More Must Die? …. “Spoken Word …. by Lula Saleh …. “!! 


~~June 19, 2017~~ 

SO VERY UNCERTAINLY SAD TIMES

LULA SALEH 

After the police officer who shot Philando Castille is set free, after the shooting in a baseball practice, after 3 serial Islamophobic attacks in the United Kingdom within the last month, the killing of Nabra Hassanen, Muslim teen, killed after leaving Virginia mosque, we ask ourselves, like Lula Saleh, has done,

how many more must die?

African American, Muslims, refugees, LGBTQ community, minorities … different people, because of their differences!?

The video speaks for itself.

GRAND MASTER OF THE JEDI ORDER

Yoda is a master!

He’s a very old and wise being.

He’s an ally. He’s not afraid because he is accepting and all inclusive of differences.

I had to include him here!

Thoughts for today, #463 …. “Fluent …. Some Americans don’t understand the concept …. “!!


lang

~~February 4, 2017~~ 

SPEAKING ENGLISH AND ANOTHER LANGUAGE

It seems that some Americans have a problem with people speaking another language besides English.

Somehow the idea that it is more helpful, not to say, a sign of higher educational level,

speaking a language besides English, in some areas in America, may be looked totally insulting.

I speak from personal experience.

I worked with the federal government for many years. I moved to Florida in 1999 and experienced this fact. Folks I worked with minded the times I spoke in Spanish, my main language.

Being fluent in both, I had to mispronounce my name so that Americans understood it.

It’s still the case to this day!

The Piano Guys …. “Our Statement on our Inauguration Performance …. “!!

~~January 17, 2017~~ 

THE PIANO GUYS AND ME

Those who have followed this blog must be aware that I have always been an ardent fan of The Piano Guys and their awesome music.

I have blogged plenty about them.

I have all their CDs. I have their sheet music.

I have some of their merchandise.

‘We haven’t changed who we are, what we stand for, or what our music means and why we write it.’

Yes, you have changed!

You have normalized something that is totally and completely wrong!

I’ve read your full statement. I respect your reasons and your decision. However, I can no longer follow you. I’ve enjoyed your music! I’ve been thrilled by your videos. I have shared all knowledge I posses about you. I’ve been on of your most ardent fans. In spite of your reasons, I’m very disappointed that you have decided to participate. It’s a real sad decision for me to ‘disconnect’ from you and your music.
Your music, your beliefs … are so elevated.

I really am very saddened by your decision.

“It brought tears to my eyes.”

Therefore, we part ways today!

The Piano Guys
Last night as I was kissing my daughter good night she asked me in an innocent, but tentative tone, “Daddy, why are people mad at you?

It brought tears to my eyes.

I told her that I wish I could gather up everyone angry with the Piano Guys one by one and talk with them face to face. Hear their story. Empathize with their concerns, and mourn together so we could comfort each other. We, too, are distraught and despondent over how divisive this chapter in our nation’s politics has been. We, too, want what’s best for everyone in this country. Those of you who know us, know we grew up as “nerdy” musicians and we experienced bullying firsthand.

We abhor and decry bullying.

pgu4

You know that we honor our relationships with our spouses more than anything else. You know we believe women are Divinely appointed to not only equality, but also respect and chivalrous deference. You know that in our history our ancestors were refugees, driven from their homes in fear for their lives. We emphatically embrace those now in the same situation. You know we believe in loving all people, regardless of gender, race, political affiliation, country of origin, or religious background.

You know we believe that differences are meant to be celebrated, not calculated.

If you know our music, you know that we painstakingly, prayerfully write and perform it with the intention to give it the greatest potential to lift others and break down barriers, not build them.

Many have asked why we are performing at the Inauguration.

blineebrbline

To our friends who have felt disturbed by our involvement, we want you to know that this doesn’t lessen our gratitude for what you have done for us. Not one bit. We still feel indebted to you. We love you. You give our music wings! We sincerely hope and pray for your understanding. We don’t feel right limiting our positive message only to people that believe or act the same way we do. We haven’t changed our message. We haven’t changed who we are, what we stand for, or what our music means and why we write it. We’re still doing what we’ve always done – playing for anyone who will hear our musical message with the hope that it persuades its listeners to love others.

AWESOME INTRODUCTION BY VIOLA DAVIS

‘DAME STREEP”

Almost a week ago, this event took place in Hollywood.

The introduction by Viola Davis is one for the books.

It shows the immense inspiration which Meryl has provided for Viola.

It’s a very special story worth of a listen.

Here is the full intro and Meryl’s unequivocal message.

Remember, this is the Cecil B. deMille Award Lifetime Achievement Award!

Any one dared call Meryl over-rated?

If possible I admire her even more as a performer, entertainer, actress and,mostly. human being!

Soria stated,

It’s no surprise that the HFPA has chosen Meryl Streep as the recipient of the 2017 Cecil B. DeMille Award. Meryl’s enthralling body of work across a diverse set of genres has made her a role model over the past 40 years, and she will continue to do so for generations to come. She has always taken roles with strong female leads, creating art by showing vulnerability and portraying truth on the big screen. Simply put, she is a trailblazer, having paved the way for women in television, film and stage. For shattering gender and age barriers, all with finesse and grace, the HFPA is humbled to bestow this honor upon her.
