VALENTINE’S DAY 2018

~SPEAKING TRUTH TO POWER~

Count the days.

It’s been a few days past 90 days.

I must confess that I have been in a funk since the elections of
November 8, 2016. I have experienced a gamut of emotions ranging from anger, disbelief, desperation, bafflement and so much more.

I saw no way out until the Parkland students in Florida began their movement.

I am rooting for them.

I’m rooting for the young people of this country. 

They will be the ones to effect change. It’s their time. The old dinosaurs in government will see the effect of the young on them.

I have their backs!!

… ‘AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD’ … 

RedLineBBARACK OBAMA

April 19th, 2018
America’s response to mass shootings has long followed a predictable pattern. We mourn. Offer thoughts and prayers. Speculate about the motives. And then – even as no developed country endures a homicide rate like ours, a difference explained largely by pervasive accessibility to guns; even as the majority of gun owners support common sense reforms – the political debate spirals into acrimony and paralysis.

This time, something different is happening.

This time, our children are calling us to account.

The Parkland, Florida, students don’t have the kind of lobbyists or big budgets for attack ads that their opponents do. Most of them can’t even vote yet.

“WE DEMAND TO LIVE”

Joaquín Oliver

“The last day I saw my son was Valentine’s Day, so he was bringing flowers for his girlfriend.

We all have the right to react however we want. But the way we react will also be part of who you are. I lost my son and my best friend which is very painful. I can just be sad or fight.

It shouldn’t be the ‘new normal‘ to think that our kids could be targets.

This is not about me. This is not about how I feel. This is about my son. He’s part of what the kids are asking for.

Those kids you saw in Washington now have a new member.

Joaquín has a voice.”

EMMA GONZALEZ

I was scrolling  through my Facebook feed today and found this.

I’m so happy I did.

I only wish I’d written it.

These perfect words come from a Facebook user from Texas.

All credit goes to her.

THIS GIRL

She’s learning what most women already know.

She’s learning the tactics some people (men and women) will take in order to rationalize disregarding your message.

They’ll criticize your hair – because valuable women should have beautiful hair. They’ll talk about your sexuality – because anytime they don’t like your message, your sexuality is fair game. They’ll talk about your clothes – because valuable women dress a certain way.

And anything bad that happens to women is the result of the clothing they choose. They’ll criticize you because you don’t wear makeup because women, valuable worthy women, wear lipstick.

EmCute

They’ll deride your tears – because women are so emotional. Never mind the fact that, had the strongest among them gone through what you have, they would cry too. They’ll talk about the patch on your jacket – as if it’s relevant – because they can’t comprehend that a flag belongs, not to a country, but to the people.

They’ll talk about how you should’ve been nicer to the unpopular kid – because, as always, it’s your responsibility to prevent violence against you. Men aren’t expected to behave but women are expected to soothe them and not provoke them. You must behave a certain way and, if you don’t, you deserve to suffer violence or even death.

When you ask for, demand, safety and protection, they’ll tell you that you don’t deserve it.

(They’ll tell you that the real threat to you is texting and driving and that you should just give up your cell phone. As if you wouldn’t gladly give up that and more to change what happened to you and your friends. The real threat is shoot-em-up video games. The real threat is violent movies and television shows like The Walking Dead. Seriously??)

They’ll criticize you if you show strength and they’ll criticize you if you show weakness. If you’re proud, they’ll say you’re arrogant. If you’re vulnerable, they’ll mock you. They’ll show contempt for your intelligence, the fact that you’re well spoken. When you stand up and speak as a woman, they’ll call you a child. When you cry, they’ll tell you to grow up.

Nothing you do or say or become will ever be enough for them. But that’s alright. Keep speaking up and out.

Keep standing true to yourself – wear what you like, love who you love.

Shout, cry, laugh.

Because you, baby girl, are already MORE THAN ENOUGH.

And there are millions of us, who are so proud of you.

ATTACKS ON EMMA GONZALEZ CONTINUE

She must be doing something right when adults and right-wingers chose her as a target of their inane comments.

RedLineB

Iowa Republican Rep. Steve King’s campaign team mocked the “look” of Parkland shooting survivor Emma González in a meme published to King’s Official Facebook Page Sunday, March 25, drawing criticism from shooting survivors.

It’s part of a wave of recent attempts to discredit Gonzalez and other survivors as they call for legislation to address gun violence. 

The item includes an image of González with tears streaming down her face at Saturday’s March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C., as she recalled the 17 lives lost at her school, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High in Parkland, Florida.

The accompanying text criticizes González’ Cuban heritage, seeming to reference the Cuban flag patch seen on her sleeve. 

“This is how you look when you claim Cuban heritage yet don’t speak Spanish and ignore the fact that your ancestors fled the island when the dictatorship turned Cuba into a prison camp, after removing all weapons from its citizens; hence their right to self defense,” the post says.

Emma has become a target again

Ever since the mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, on Valentine’s Day, Emma and other fellow classmates have become targets of those opposing their actions, thoughts and reasonable demands.

They have tried to vilify them calling them ‘crisis actors’, too young, inexperienced and so much more.

This is but another example of adults being unable to deal with the truth these kids are bringing to the forefront.

I firmly believe Emma and her fellow students, as well as the millions who are now ‘woke’ and loudly speaking, are not going away. 

I stand in awe of all of them!

This gives me hope!

FOUND TONIGHT

HamilDrop: Ben Platt & Lin Manuel Miranda Mashup “Found Tonight”

FOR THE KIDS

Found Tonight with Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt and all of Troupe 10036

I’m an ardent fan.

Lin-Manuel Miranda is an amazing talent.

His Puerto Rican roots make it even more significant for me.

He has shown immense interest in social causes.

Benjamin Schiff Platt (born September 24, 1993) is an American actor and singer known for originating the role of the title character in the Broadway musical Dear Evan Hansen, a performance for which he has won numerous awards.

Here you have two amazing talents joined for a common cause for the future of the children of this nation.

The heart-stopping anthem released on Monday,  March 19, by Lin Manuel Miranda and Ben Platt to celebrate the “March For Our Lives” gun violence prevention actions this weekend needs no introduction, only some background.

The three-minute song, “Found Tonight,” mashes up Miranda’s “Story Of Tonight” from his smash musical “Hamilton” and the song “You Will Be Found,” from Platt’s star turn in “Dear Evan Hansen,” by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul.

This means the song draws from one story about teenage revolutionaries, and another about teens triumphing over despair.

The song begins with a rewritten line from “Hamilton” – instead of “we may not live to sing our glory,”

Platt sings, “we may not yet have reached our glory.”

All the proceeds from downloads of the song go to “March For Our Lives,” a gun violence prevention demonstration that will take place on March 24 in Washington DC.

Platt’s extraordinary gift for vulnerability and vocal sublimity are on display here, as is Miranda’s once-in-a-generation passion.

Emma González …. “🙏🏽 March for Our Lives …. Eloquent, Stirring Speech …. What a Strong Message! 🙏🏽 …. “!!


~~March 25, 2018~~ 

… ‘and the children shall lead’ … 

WOULD NEVER

Ever since Valentine’s Day 2018, the day the Parkland, Florida mass shooting happened, this phrase has become ingrained in my mind.

These teenagers are taking over this sad American reality.

Like Emma, there are plenty others. There are those we know already by name who have been thrust into adulthood too soon. They have taken their role as serious as the reality is.

They are claiming their future as they should.

Here’s one of the many examples seen on March 24, 2018 …
