A PICTURE, A MEME SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS

In light of the recent violent and fatal events in Charlottesville, Virginia, my blogger friend Martin created this graphic.

These are deep words which ring so true and evoke strong emotions. 

I’m honored and proud to share it here with you.

The line has been drawn in the sand.

Executive versus Judicial power!

The stay was ordered and the Drumpf administration has appealed.

The hearing has been set for February 7, 2017 at 6 PM EST.

U.S. DISTRICT JUDGE JAMES ROBART

‘The threat from radical Islamic terrorism is very real, just look at what is happening in Europe and the Middle-East.

Courts must act fast!’

Drumpf, the ‘so-called president’

bline

In a tweet coming shortly after Robart’s initial ruling, he called him a “so-called judge,” whose decision put national security in jeopardy.

The context of this bullish statement directed at the courts is that, on Tuesday, February 7, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will take up the issue of the legality of Trump’s presently suspended Muslim ban. This hearing comes as just one stop in an already long and winding legal battle between those opposed to the ban and those in favor of it.

Seattle Federal Judge James Robart ruled against the ban late last Friday, February 3, and the Trump administration has been up in arms ever since then, trying to get it reinstated.

WE THREE KINGS OF ORIENT ARE

The Three Kings (Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar) represented Europe, Arabia and Africa respectively.

They came from afar, searching for Baby Jesus and brought them presents: Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh.

These valuable items were standard gifts to honor a king or deity in the ancient world: gold as a precious metal, frankincense as perfume or incense, and myrrh as anointing oil.

~~We Three Kings~~

(Piano/Cello)

~~Published on Dec 13, 2012~~

Story behind the song
There is so much mystery surrounding the story of the Three Kings. Who were they? Where did they come from? What relation did they have to each other? We only really know what (or Who) they were after.

Their only guides were ancient scripture and a bright star. They would not give up until they found the Savior of the world, no matter the cost.

Our arrangement of this traditional Christmas song “We Three Kings” is a tribute to them, their tenacity, and their Noble Purpose.

THE EVE BEFORE THE EPIPHANY

Tomorrow is my real Christmas celebration.

It’s Three Kings Day.

As a kid, I’d gather grass and collect it in a box.

I’d put that under my bed and when I woke up the next morning, my presents would be there.

The camels had eaten the grass and the Three Kings had left me my presents.

It’s something that we still celebrate with our grad-children.

Gathering grass today and waiting for tomorrow.

~Ten facts about the Feast of the Epiphany~

The three Kings (Melchior, Caspar and Balthazar) represented Europe, Arabia and Africa respectively.
Hundreds of years ago, roast lamb was traditionally served at Epiphany in honor of Christ and the three Kings’ visit.
Whoever finds the small statue of a baby Jesus hidden inside their slice of the Rosca de Reyes throws a party on Candlemas in February.
In some European countries, children leave their shoes out the night before to be filled with gifts, while others leave straw for the three Kings’ horses.
According to Greek Orthodox Church’s traditions, a priest will bless the waters by throwing a cross into it as worshipers try to retrieve it.
In Bulgaria too, Eastern Orthodox priests throw a cross in the sea and the men dive in – competing to get to it first.
In Venice a traditional regatta that started as a joke in the late 1970’s has been incorporated in the celebrations of Epiphany Day.
In Prague, there is a traditional Three Kings swim to commemorate Epiphany Day at the Vltava River.
In New York, El Museo del Barrio has celebrated and promoted the Three Kings’ Day tradition with an annual parade for more than three decades. Thousands take part in the procession featuring camels, colorful puppets and floats.
The day’s activities involve singing holiday carols called aguinaldos.

To start the day …. “Banksy’s Latest Artwork …. “!!


Ba8

~~January 26, 2016~~ 

YOUNG COSETTE …. “LES MISERABLES”

Banksy is an English-based graffiti artist, political activist and film director whose real identity is unknown.

His satirical street art and subversive epigrams combine dark humor with graffiti executed in a distinctive stenciling technique. His works of political and social commentary have been featured on streets, walls, and bridges of cities throughout the world. Banksy’s work grew out of the Bristol underground scene, which involved collaborations between artists and musicians.

Observers have noted that his style is similar to Blek le Rat, who began to work with stencils in 1981 in Paris. Banksy says that he was inspired by “3D”, a graffiti artist who later became a founding member of Massive Attack, an English musical group.

Banksy displays his art on publicly visible surfaces such as walls and self-built physical prop pieces.

~Criticizes France’s Treatment Of Refugees~

A new interactive work by Banksy criticizing the alleged use of tear gas in a refugee camp in France appeared outside the French embassy in London, but it was then quickly boarded up.

The mural, the latest in a series of works by the anonymous artist drawing attention to the migrant crisis in Europe, depicts what’s believed to be a young Cosette from the original “Les Misérables” Broadway poster with tears streaming down her face above a canister of tear gas.

The artwork also features a QR code for mobile phones that guides viewers to a seven-minute video that appears to show French riot police using tear gas during a raid in early January in a migrant hot spot called “the Jungle” in the port town of Calais.

GoldSwirl

While authorities have been moving to clear an estimated 2,000 refugees out of the makeshift camp, a Calais police spokesman denied tear gas was ever used, telling the Guardian,

“It’s not in our interest to use tear gas unless it’s absolutely necessary to restore public order, and it is never used in the camp itself.”

The building’s owners began covering the mural with wooden planks shortly after it was discovered early Sunday to preserve it, BBC News reported.

Known for provocative, politically charged guerrilla street art, Banksy has put the refugee crisis in Calais front and center recently with works including a mural of Steve Jobs painted on a wall of the camp.

Jobs is the son of a Syrian migrant.

Last year, Banksy said he would repurpose lumber and material from his Dismaland anti-theme park in the U.K. to build shelters in Calais.

I love Banksy’s artwork.

It’s amazing that he exposes these situations that some people just brush off their shoulder as if it meant nothing.

At the end of the day …. “Boat Person: Vietnamese Refugees Look Back”!!


Boat1

~~October 2, 2015~~ 

VIETNAMESE BOAT PEOPLE

Let’s go back in history and take a trip down “memory lane”.

The Vietnam War ended on April 30, 1975 with the Fall of Saigon to the North Vietnamese Army and the evacuation of more than 130,000 Vietnamese closely associated with the United States or the South Vietnamese regime.

Vietnamese boat people refers to refugees who fled Vietnam by boat and ship after the Vietnam War, especially during 1978 and 1979, but continuing until the early 1990’s. The term is also often used generically to refer to all the Vietnamese (about 2 million) who left their country by any means between 1975 and 1995. This article uses “boat people” to apply only to those who fled Vietnam by boat.

The number of boat people leaving Vietnam and arriving safely in another country totalled almost 800,000 between 1975 and 1995. Many of the refugees failed to survive the passage, facing danger and hardship from pirates, over-crowded boats, and storms. The boat people’s first destinations were the Southeast Asian countries of Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand. The mass flight of hundreds of thousands of boat people from Vietnam in 1978 and 1979 caused an international humanitarian crisis with the Southeast Asian countries increasingly unwilling to accept more boat people on their shores. After negotiations and an international conference in 1979, Vietnam agreed to limit the flow of people leaving the country, the Southeast Asian countries agreed to admit the boat people temporarily, and the rest of the world, especially the developed countries, agreed to assume most of the costs of caring for the boat people and to resettle them in their countries.

From refugee camps in Southeast Asia, the great majority of boat people were resettled in developed countries, more than one-half in the United States and most of the remainder in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, and the United Kingdom. Several tens of thousands were repatriated to Vietnam, either voluntarily or involuntarily. Programs and facilities to carry out resettlement included the Orderly Departure Program, the Philippine Refugee Processing Center, and the Comprehensive Plan of Action.

These people were displaced as a direct consequence of the Vietnam war.

Ideologies, beliefs, convictions, policies, intervention in an unknown region were applied to this country.

“The invaders” lacked knowledge about the country that was invaded.

BLine

The role of the United States in the Vietnam War began after the Second World War and escalated into full commitment during what is termed the Vietnam War from 1959 to 1975.

BLine

This historical fact can be brought to our present times and applied to the massive exodus that is occurring in the Middle East as a consequence of the war in Syria.

The common factor: human beings fleeing areas of conflict, danger, oppression, violence and death.

Looking and hoping for a better future for their families.

It seems seems to me that history is repeating itself.

As humans, this race hasn’t learned any life lessons.

The powers that be continue to impose destruction,conflict and chaos in areas were they don’t belong.

Will we ever learn to live in peace?

Can we be compassionate with those that are leaving their homes behind?

I wonder.

THE GLOBAL REFUGEE CRISIS

Tens of thousands of people are fleeing civil war and unrest to find new homes in Europe — sometimes with tragic consequences.

The U.N. estimates that more people have been displaced than at any time since World War II.
