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.

SHE GOT THE BOOT

Well, she brought it upon herself, she shot herself in the foot.

Am I happy? I have to say ‘yes’!

Why?

Because of what she stands for and the way she has damaged the American psyche.

Words and actions do have consequences and one definitely reaps what one sows!!

STEPHEN HAWKING …. “💫✨💫 Fly High, Sir …. The Universe Awaits You 💫✨💫 …. “!!


HQuiet

~~March 14, 2018~~ 

Stephen William Hawking, CH CBE FRS FRSA, (8 January 1942 – 14 March 2018), was an English theoretical physicist, cosmologist, author and Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology within the University of Cambridge.

His scientific works included a collaboration with Roger Penrose on gravitational singularity theorems in the framework of general relativity and the theoretical prediction that black holes emit radiation, often called Hawking radiation.

Hawking was the first to set out a theory of cosmology explained by a union of the general theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.

He was a vigorous supporter of the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.

The physicist, who died Wednesday, March 14, 2018, at age 76, wasn’t expected to see his 25th birthday, after being diagnosed with the incurable neurodegenerative condition ALS at age 21.

Though Hawking beat the odds for more than five decades, the scientist told the Guardian in 2011 that death was never far from his mind.

~Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis~

ALS is a group of rare neurological diseases that mainly involve the nerve cells (neurons) responsible for controlling voluntary muscle movement. Voluntary muscles produce movements like chewing, walking, and talking. The disease is progressive, meaning the symptoms get worse over time.

Currently, there is no cure for ALS and no effective treatment to halt, or reverse, the progression of the disease.

Shooting Survivors Write and Perform Song

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.”

TRUMP VERSUS THE WORLD

America’s reputation is being damaged by its own president

John Oliver, several dinosaurs, and the NYC Gay Men’s Chorus remind the world that our country is … complicated.

This is one of my favorite shows.

The best way to make it through these days is with humor. John is a master at it.

This is a very serious situation … yet it’s so funny.

Totally pathetic and worrisome.

It’s a bit long but worth your while.
