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.

Gaza and Israel …. “🇮🇱🇺🇸🇵🇸 Two Vantage Points …. A Celebration and A Massacre …. Quite Uneven …. OPINION 🇵🇸🇵🇷🇮🇱 …. “!!

Grotesque Spectacle in Jerusalem

The complicit first daughter and her shady husband are partying in Jerusalem while Palestinian people are being slaughtered

The juxtaposition of images of dead and wounded Palestinians and Ivanka Drumpf smiling in Jerusalem like a Zionist Marie Antoinette tell us a lot about America’s relationship to Israel right now

I can’t wrap my mind around this.

There’s no worse blind person than one blind person who doesn’t want to see. 

I can only see misery, self defense, preservation from the Palestinians and total disregard from the state of Israel. Israel has military grade weapons, has been encroaching in Palestine land, suffocating the Palestine nations in ways that I can only imagine.

In the meantime, the Drumpfs, the Netanyahus, the powerful, hawkish Jews and Zionist evangelicals take advantage of the lack of morals, values, policies and strategy of the

Fool on the Hill“.

On Monday, May 14, Ivanka Drumpf, Jared Kushner and other leading lights of the Trumpist right gathered in Israel to celebrate the relocation of the American Embassy to Jerusalem, a gesture widely seen as a slap in the face to Palestinians who envision East Jerusalem as their future capital.

The event was grotesque

It was a consummation of the cynical alliance between hawkish Jews and Zionist evangelicals who believe that the return of Jews to Israel will usher in the apocalypse and the return of Christ, after which Jews who don’t convert will burn forever.

This spectacle, geared toward Drumpf’s Christian American base, coincided with a massacre about 40 miles away. Since March 30, there have been mass protests at the fence separating Gaza and Israel.

Gazans, facing an escalating humanitarian crisis due in large part to an Israeli blockade, are demanding the right to return to homes in Israel that their families were forced from at Israel’s founding.

TALK ABOUT DAVID AND GOLIATH

The demonstrators have been mostly but not entirely peaceful; Gazans have thrown rocks at Israeli soldiers and tried to fly flaming kites into Israel.

The Israeli military has responded with live gunfire as well as rubber bullets and tear gas. In clashes on Monday, at least 58 Palestinians were killed and thousands wounded, according to the Gaza Health Ministry.

RED CARDINALS …. “💕 Beauty and Hope …. Cardinals appear when Angels are Near 💕 …. “!!


Card1

~When a Cardinal appears in your Yard, it’s a Visitor from Heaven~

Cardinals have long been symbolic of beauty in the midst of darkness, hope in the midst of sorrow, and renewal in the midst of winter.

Whether these symbolic meanings came from the folk proverb, or the proverb came from the traditional symbolism, in any case many people are reminded of the presence of a departed loved one when seeing a cardinal bird land nearby.

Here’s a pithy, poetic version of this traditional quote:

“Cardinals appear when Angels are near.”

This latter quote appears to have come from a poem and blog post by Victoria McGovern of Our Wander Life.

Here’s the context of the fuller version:

May you come to find comfort in and remember:
Cardinals appear when angels are near.
So go now, sit outside and drink your tea.
Keep a look out for the little red bird –
It is there, your loved one will be.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again …. “🎼🎼 I Kissed The Teacher …. Lyric Video 🎼🎼 …. “!!

I JUST KISSED THE TEACHER

MAMMA MIA

 I can’t tell you how much the movie Mamma Mia means to me.

I’ve lost counts of the many time I went to watch on the big screen. I even went to the ‘sing-a-long’ version!

ABBA’s music takes me to a very happy time in my young life.

I bought the DVD and every so often watch it at home again.

After the movie, there was a theater production in town which I also saw. After the movie, although the play as good, it was kinda of like a let-down.

Maybe I should’ve seen the theater production first!

Anyway, I’m so excited that a Mamma Mia 2 is coming out this summer.

You can’t bet I’ll be there!

It seems that Meryl Streep won’t be in the movie (that’s a bummer) but Cher comes in to play the grandma! 

Check the video out.

The first song off of the upcoming Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again movie, due out in theaters in July, has just been released

When I Kissed the Teacher” is an ABBA deep cut from 1976 album Arrival; old school fans of the Swedish pop superstars will know it, but everyone else should quickly catch on to the signature upbeat vibe and playful singalong lyrics. And, yes, it’s about kissing a teacher. The accompanying video shows off Cinderella actress Lily James – who’s starring in the movie sequel as a young Donna – singing and dancing enthusiastically through a school graduation ceremony, backed up by the other two ladies of the singing group the Dynamos.

ABBA’s own Benny Andersson is credited with producing and arranging the movie’s soundtrack, so you know they’re sticking to the group’s roots. But fans also received good news last week, when ABBA announced they’ve recorded two brand-new songs set for release soon, their first new music in over three decades.

‘This Is America’ …. “🎼🎼 Childish Gambino …. Did you Catch all the Themes? 🎼🎼 …. “!!

THIS IS AMERICA VIDEO … IN A NUTSHELL

Did you catch all the themes in Childish Gambino’s “This is America”?

Quite a strong message.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned.

Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

I had to look up the lyrics to get the full meaning.

How Childish Gambino’s ‘This Is America’ Indicts and Challenges Its Audience
The controversial new music video by Donald Glover and Hiro Murai has amassed millions of YouTube views while exposing viewers to the horrors of the black experience in America.

~IRA MADISON III~

Have you ever been grateful for something that you find aesthetically revolting?

The caustically violent “This Is America,” Donald Glover’s latest single and video under his musical moniker Childish Gambino, is exactly that.

The song, which blends jazz, hip-hop, and South African melodies to deliver a scheming-up mantra of “get your money, black man,” takes on an entirely different tone when paired with its Hiro Murai-directed music video that depicts Glover maniacally dancing while simultaneously murdering black people in pastoral tableaus.

Informative video but there were some other things I picked up/read about:

1. His pants are supposed to be similar to the basics of confederate army uniforms
2. SZA (the women at the end) is representing lady liberty passively watching this all going on, which is ironic since she’s the symbol of freedom.
3. The horse followed by the police car is a biblical reference “And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.” – Revelation 6:8 “
4. The cars shown in the video are all 80s-90s make. They’re not like the typical rap cars you see in videos.
5. Kids on their cellphones represent how passive we are when things happen in front of us. There has been many occasions when something fatal could have been stopped, but people were too busy recording it on their phones.
Anyways! That’s a few takeaways I’ve had.

Good art always provokes thought and conversation.

I love how this video has done that.
