THE LAST LOCKDOWN

THE SAD REALITY COMES THROUGH LOUD AND CLEAR

I have no words.

The sculpture explains it all even if you don’t read the article below.

Father Of Parkland Shooting Victim Sculpts Haunting Image Of Child Hiding Under Desk
Manuel Oliver created “The Last Lockdown” partially using 3D printing

Artist Manuel Oliver, who lost his 17-year-old son Joaquin during the February shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, has created a striking sculpture depicting a child hiding under a desk to signify when a school is on lockdown.
The statue is one of 10 being shown across the country during voter registration drives, specifically in congressional districts where politicians back the gun lobby. The title of the project is “The Last Lockdown.”

The figures were created using 3D printers, an intentional reference to the debate over guns potentially being 3D printed.

The desks are real school desks.  “We want you to feel unsettled,” the project’s co-creator Sean Leonard said. 

Oliver and Leonard teamed up with Giffords, the gun reform group founded by former congresswoman Gabby Giffords.

Giffords is a mass shooting victim herself, being left partially paralyzed after a lone gunman opened fire at a meet-and-greet in Tucson, Arizona, in 2011.

HOW FAR I’LL GO, MOANA

~~JUDGE CUTS~~

Season 2018 of  America’s Got Talent is underway.

Still catching up with the recorded episodes.

This one made me feel emotional. The talent, the mission, the kids, the word, wow!

Hope you enjoy this as much as I did.

When they auditioned for “America’s Got Talent” on June 19, Voices of Hope Children’s Choir were not able to convince Howie Mandel to give them a yes vote.

They had wowed the crowd and the other three judges (Simon Cowell, Mel B and Heidi Klum) with their performance of the power anthem “This Is Me” from “The Greatest Showman.”

This time around, they upped their game and their choir director promised they were “more tight and solid on the vocals.” And indeed they were.  In the video, watch this group of 70 kids from Orange County wow with their harmonies on “How Far I’ll Go” from “Moana” the Oscar-nominated song by  Lin-Manuel Miranda (“Hamilton”).

~Live-blogger John Benutty observed~

“The song started with a series of three female solos before erupting into a full-choir harmony at the first chorus. Full disclosure, the song is one of my favorite Disney songs and at the peak of their performance I literally had chills!

Mel felt the performance strongly too because she got emotional, as did Ken who after Heidi and Simon sent in their support hit his golden buzzer and sent the choir straight through to the live shows!

You could tell during the performance that he might do it because he seemed utterly speechless.”

VIDEO OF THE DAY

AVE MARIA

I’ve watched to Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding during the weekend.

I was totally impressed by Sheku Kanneh-Mason, the young cellist who played during the ceremony.

Take a look at his other siblings.

Beyond amazing!!

~Kanneh-Mason Family play Ave Maria (with Hobbit intro) at Bath Festival 2018~

This is the first time I was privileged to hear all 7 of these anointed musicians play together.

Ever since the Royal Wedding and me encountering the dynamic gift of Sheku Kanneh-Mason on the cello, and then the tremendous talent of his siblings as well, I have not been able to stop crying.

God’s hand is so powerfully on this family.

Just as King David played the harp, this entire family of psalmists is transforming the lives of others and taking authority over the atmosphere through song. They have been raised up strategically for such a time as this. May God crown them with glory, with open doors, and unprecedented favor.

PARKLAND HIGH SCHOOL SURVIVORS

“Laughter is the best medicine.”

Thanks for keeping us kinda sane with these videos during this endless fuckery that Drumpf’s presidency is.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you have to be aware of the mass shooting that happened in Parkland, Florida.

Even during this tragedy, some good seems to be developing.

The high school survivors are taking on the system.

The NRA and it’s spokesperson Dana Loesch are feeling the heat!!

This video says it all.

Viral YouTube star Randy Rainbow today ripped into the NRA and their spokes-shrieker Dana Loesch with a parody of KIDS from the Tony-winning 1960 musical Bye Bye Birdie.

The “kids” in Randy’s song, of course, are the Parkland survivors that have galvanized the anti-gun movement.

The more I find out about these kids, the more impressed I am.

Multiply that by such a number and imagine how many amazing kids are out there in harm’s way.

Never thought of it this way.

The adults have dropped the ball.

It will be up to their generation to get this done correctly.

My support is with them all the way!

Ellen DeGeneres …. “💞 Parkland Shooting Survivors Talk …. Gun Control and Conspiracies 💞 …. “!!


~~February 23, 2018~~ 

STRONG, YOUNG VOICES SPEAK

I see them as hope for the future.

The adults have failed them. This fight is theirs now. I’m hoping and wishing that they do prevail.

They are amazing teenagers, much older than their years, who, in one week, have seen their sense of safety shattered.

Let these videos speak for themselves!

Parkland shooting survivors talk gun control and conspiracies on The Ellen DeGeneres Show

~DAVID CANFIELD~

February 23, 2018 
Three survivors of the mass shooting last Wednesday, February 14, at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, joined Ellen DeGeneres on Friday. February 23, to continue spreading their advocacy of stricter gun laws.

DeGeneres was joined by Emma González, Cameron Kasky and Jaclyn Corin, all of whom have made major public appearances over the past week, to discuss the conversation that the Parkland tragedy (wherein 17 people were killed) has sparked and what’s being done to keep it going and to turn it into real policy change. “You all are amazing,” the host said to them at the beginning of the segment.

Ell1

The students touched on a variety of topics, including their widely-watched CNN Town Hall on Wednesday evening in which, among other highlights, Kasky confronted Senator Marco Rubio and asked him directly whether he’d continue accepting money from the National Rifle Association.

As DeGeneres continued to praise the students’ efforts, González clarified that it was her school that gave her the tools to make sense of and respond to the tragedy.

“We are thankful to have been in a school that educated us almost perfectly to handle this situation,” she said.

Kasky added that he’s felt some guilt for what it took to spur him to activism.

“I wish I had been able to be a part of this before I had to feel it at home,” he said. “I almost feel guilty … It took us feeling that anguish for us to get involved, but we’re here now. But we just have to keep going and realize that we’re here to fight the good fight.”

He later quipped, in regard to the conspiracy theorists accusing students like González and Kasky of being paid actors on behalf of anti-gun efforts, “If you’ve seen me act in school productions, you know I’m not somebody who deserves any money for acting.”
