AMERICAN CIVIL LIBERTIES UNION

I must confess that I’d heard about this organization before.

It wasn’t after the November 2016 election that I became a member.

They support all rights of the people who seem to be oppressed during the current American ‘rule’.

They represent me.

I stand with the ACLU! 

I thank the ACLU!

ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’

For some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’ in my feed.

Some are artists that I’m familiar with, others note.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Hope you enjoy this one too!

Alex, Casey, and I wanted to get together to pay our respects to the iconic songwriter and poet Leonard Cohen, who passed away  – and also to show our commitment to maintaining an inclusive and diverse country by raising money for the ACLU, an organization that fights for immigrants’ rights, free speech, criminal law reform and social justice.

Hope you enjoy the song – sending you all our love and best wishes!

STOP THE HATE

Amazing tribute.

Take the time to watch and listen.

They were 49 vibrant, human beings.

Each had a story, each had a life.

Cut short too soon.

Victims of hate.

These are their names.

These are their stories.

Remember them.

It’s time we put a stop to hate violence

Join us and show the world that love conquers hate

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder.

Now, the tragic killing of 49 innocent people on Latin Night at Pulse nightclub in Orlando — young lives taken solely because of who they were — has rocked our nation to its core.

49 Top Stars Gather to Record Short Film to Honor Orlando Victims

By Michael O’Connell

(June 29, 2016)

Nobody knew what to do, but everybody wanted to do something. The June 12 mass shooting that claimed 49 lives at a gay club in Orlando, Florida, unfolded more than 2,000 miles away from Los Angeles — but the grief and frustration over an increasingly familiar narrative left many people in Hollywood searching a meaningful way to respond.

The recipient of many blind offers of service was Ryan Murphy.

The producer’s phone rang frequently in the days following the attack at Pulse, with one call coming from Human Rights Campaign president Chad Griffin. The two quickly crafted a plan to recruit 49 altruistic celebrities to memorialize each of the Orlando victims by reading a brief eulogy of their lives, editing the clips to construct a 18-minute film that started streaming live online starting June 29.

“We want to ensure that what we do is effective,” Griffin told The Hollywood Reporter on set of production.

“It’s on all of us to know each and every one of them by name and for their legacies to, in part, spur change on important issues.”

49 Celebrities Honor 49 Victims of Orlando Tragedy in Ryan Murphy-Produced Tribute

~~Published on Jun 29, 2016~~

For too long, a toxic combination of anti-LGBTQ hate and easy access to guns has put LGBTQ people at disproportionate risk of violence and murder.

On June 12, forty-nine innocent people — most of them Latinx — were killed at Pulse nightclub in Orlando simply because of who they were.

It’s on all of us to keep their memories alive, and to ensure part of their legacy becomes meaningful action to end hate violence.

Join the Human Rights Campaign and urge your legislator to support legislation that will ensure LGBTQ people are safe and equal in every community and find out how to support the survivors and families of the Orlando victims.

CHANGING LANDSCAPE

From outer space, Earth shines like a beacon

Reflecting sunlight off silvery white clouds, opal blue oceans, and forest-tinged continents, it’s hard to imagine from this image that humanity is making any kind of imprint.

But we are making more than an imprint; we are stamping our metal feet into the Earth and spewing carbon by the ton into the atmosphere. In turn, we are leaving the Earth in much worse shape than we found it.

Haze has settled over cities.

Once green, fertile areas have become desert. Metal encroachments creep into the soil. All the while, NASA has photographed the progress from space. Here are seven jarring images of human impacts on Earth, as seen from space.

PERFECT BILLBOARD

Mississippi’s Anti-LGBT Bigots Were Just Surprised with This Perfect Billboard

A nonprofit humanitarian group has the perfect response to the new Mississippi law that legalizes discrimination against the LGBT community.

The organization Planting Peace, which earned viral fame after purchasing a house adjacent to the Westboro Baptist Church and painting it with rainbow colors, may have outdone themselves entirely with a new billboard in Jackson, Mississippi.

The billboard shows Jesus face-palming, along with the text, “Guys, I said I hate figs and to love thy neighbor,” making reference to a less well-known section of the Bible in which Jesus curses a fig tree, making it barren.

The billboard is located on High Street in downtown Jackson, just blocks away from the Mississippi State Capitol.

“The intent of this billboard is to bring awareness to how the anti-LGBT movement continues to try to move us backwards in the fight for equal rights,” Planting Peace Founder Aaron Jackson told The Huffington Post.

Mississippi is making headlines today after Governor Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1523 into law, which allows private businesses to deny service to LGBT customers, and to anyone who has had sex out of wedlock.

A dear blogger friend taught me this concept.

You can find Michelle here: http://mchelsmusings.wordpress.com/

~IN HER OWN WORDS~

IOTD” is image of the day, a concept I came up with. I teach visual meditative therapy – or in easy terms – a mini mental holiday. For some people it is very difficult for them to get their image right. I post an image a day for people to use in their mini mental vacay. Some are serious, some are silly, and some are just beautiful!”

THIS IS VERY SERIOUS FOR ME …. SHOULD BE FOR MANY MORE
