SHE PERSISTED

#ShePersisted goes viral after Senate votes to silence Warren

BY PAULINA FIROZI

02/08/17 08:10 AM EST

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) inadvertently created a rallying cry for supporters of Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) when he rebuked her after the Senate voted to prevent her from speaking.

As Democrats held the Senate floor overnight to protest Sen. Jeff Sessions’s (R-Ala.) nomination for attorney general, Warren quoted a 1986 letter that the late Coretta Scott King, a civil rights activist and wife of Martin Luther King Jr., wrote opposing Sessions’s nomination for a federal judgeship at the time.

“Sen. Warren was giving a lengthy speech. She had appeared to violate the rule. She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

The Senate voted 49-43 along party lines to prevent Warren from speaking on the Senate floor for the remainder of debate on Sessions’s nomination.

FAKE SOCIETY

Society beckons, rules please conform

“We are Anonymous. We are Legion. We do not forgive. We do not forget. Expect us.”

Society Drums
Life behind shadows,
Society beckons, rules please conform.
Truth is lost, we fall to dust.
Now open the soul to wanderlust.

Excerpts

I don’t think like you
And you don’t think like me
You don’t believe in things I believe
My love and respects are at odds
I’m different than you,
And just alike.

You don’t look like me
I don’t look like you ….

In my mind, this quote has a dual meaning.

Both meanings are important to me.

We are all human beings, different in ethnicity, skin color, physical looks, educational backgrounds and so much more.

Yet, deep inside, we all are the same.

We all are born the same way.

We all breath oxygen and we all bleed red.

Animals are sentient beings who were here on this Earth before any human being.

They feel fear and pain as humans do.

They are all different amongst themselves.

Yet, they all are born the same way.

They all breath oxygen and they all bleed red.

MY QUOTE FOR TODAY IS

TheyCame

THE STORY BEHIND IT

The quotation stems from Niemöller’s lectures during the early postwar period. Different versions of the quotation exist. These can be attributed to the fact that Niemöller spoke extemporaneously and in a number of settings.

Much controversy surrounds the content of the poem as it has been printed in varying forms, referring to diverse groups such as Catholics, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Jews, Trade Unionists, or Communists depending upon the version.

Nonetheless his point was that Germans — in particular, he believed, the leaders of the Protestant churches — had been complicit through their silence in the Nazi imprisonment, persecution, and murder of millions of people.

I find these words so very important and so very inspiring. Even though they were written during WWII and Nazi Germany and mention Communists, Jews, Catholics and Protestants, you can fill in the blanks with the different ethnic groups of current times.

By doing so, the quote becomes relevant and current.

Bottom line. we need to band together and stand up against the forces that work against equality and humanity.

We ALL are connected through HUMANITY!

THE STORY BEHIND IT

Among the hundreds of people were waiting to visit with Mahatma Gandhi were a mother and her young son. When it was their turn, the woman asked Gandhi to speak with her son about eating sugar.

Gandhi asked her to come back in two weeks and said he would talk to the boy then.

She wondered why he didn’t just speak to her son when he was already there, but she complied with his request.

In two weeks they returned, and after waiting for a couple of hours, she was able to approach Gandhi once again.

Hearing her repeated request, Gandhi immediately spoke with the boy, who agreed to begin working to eliminate sweets.

After thanking Gandhi for his wise and compassionate words, the mother asked him why he wanted them to return instead of offering his advice the first time.

Gandhi replied, “Upon your visit two weeks ago I too was eating sugar.”

He explained that he could not speak of or teach her son to not eat sugar if he himself had not taken that journey.

1. What I’m working on at the moment?

At this moment in time, I’m following several topics related to human rights. I work on different themes and topics. Every day I do “Image Of The Day” and “Thoughts for Today“. Like many bloggers, my topics vary. I try to be on the look out for world events and decisions that may affect those who need a voice.

2. How does my work differ from others in my genre?

“My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is “eclectic” – a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I’m interested in news – reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse – the “wrongly” affected.”

“Wrongly affected” includes minorities, animals, homeless, the forgotten.

I also post a MEDICAL CORNER where medical conditions are explained at a level that the lay person can understand and relate to.

3. Why do I write and create what I do?

I started blogging because I retired from a full time job and had plenty of time on my hands. Through the help of a very dear friend, I discovered this wonderful world of blogging. I found it to be an amazing experience.

I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone “out there” who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense.

4. How does my writing and creative process work?

I don’t have a set creative process. I have general ideas and the pulse of world events, special celebrations, new music videos, old music videos and topic I find while surfing the net or going through my Facebook feed provide the inspiration to what I blog about.

Ideas and topics lead to more ideas and topics. There are times when I want to cover so much that I literally don’t know which one to work on.
