KYLA JADE

THIS IS ME

What a voice! What a talent!

Per her own admission, the song is perfect for her as it expresses her personal feelings. In the live show, Kyla spoke of a comment in her social media:

“Kyla has an amazing voice but I don’t know if I can watch her in a concert.”

Very painful for her because she’s has feelings of poor self esteem and her personal experiences haven’t all been rosy.

Her talent shines through!

Enjoy her performance!!

Colin Kaepernick …. “🏈🏆🏈 Amnesty International’s Ambassador of Conscience Award …. Athlete and Activist 🏈🏆🏈 …. “!!

ATHLETE AND ACTIVIST COLIN KAEPERNICK RECEIVES AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL’S AMBASSADOR OF CONSCIENCE AWARD

The Ambassador of Conscience Award celebrates individuals and groups who have furthered the cause of human rights through acts of conscience, confronting injustice and using their talents to inspire others.

The USA is a country where people can freely disrespect the flag using it as a thong, underwear, condom, disposable plates, bras, napkins, etc. but people got a heart attack just because he kneeled down silently and that is so “disrespectful” to the flag.

Really?

Kneeling down is a form of respect and humbling yourself before someone.

I fully agree with Chino and his statement.

The award was officially presented at a ceremony in Amsterdam, Netherlands, on 21 April 2018, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the opening of Amnesty International’s national section in the country.

“The Ambassador of Conscience award celebrates the spirit of activism and exceptional courage, as embodied by Colin Kaepernick. He is an athlete who is now widely recognised for his activism because of his refusal to ignore or accept racial discrimination,” said Salil Shetty, Secretary General of Amnesty International.

“Just like the Ambassadors of Conscience before him, Colin Kaepernick chooses to speak out and inspire others despite the professional and personal risks. When high profile people choose to take a stand for human rights, it emboldens many others in their struggles against injustice.

Colin Kaepernick’s commitment is all the more remarkable because of the alarming levels of vitriol it has attracted from those in power.”

“I would like to thank Amnesty International for the Ambassador of Conscience Award. But in truth, this is an award that I share with all of the countless people throughout the world combating the human rights violations of police officers, and their uses of oppressive and excessive force.

To quote Malcolm X, when he said that he, ‘will join in with anyone – I don’t care what color you are – as long as you want to change this miserable condition that exists on this earth,’ I am here to join with you all in this battle against police violence,” said Colin Kaepernick.

“While taking a knee is a physical display that challenges the merits of who is excluded from the notion of freedom, liberty, and justice for all, the protest is also rooted in a convergence of my moralistic beliefs, and my love for the people.”

Colin Kaepernick explained why he sacrificed his career in the NFL to stand against systemic racism as he received Amnesty International’s highest honor.

DR. MAYA ANGELOU 

“I RISE”

Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys and others celebrate the prolific writer with a reading of her famed poem “Still I Rise.”

‘Google Doodle for Today’ appeared regularly on this blog.

“Life is what happens to you when you are busy making other plans.”

John Lennon

That’s what happened to these postings.

However, I couldn’t let this one pass.

Maya Angelou’s birthday!

GoldSwirlMay8GoldSwirl

Prolific poet and writer Maya Angelou would’ve turned 90 on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.
To honor and celebrate the phenomenal woman who penned the powerful “Still I Rise,” Google has dedicated the day’s doodle on its search homepage to Angelou, who died in 2014 at age 86.

The doodle is accompanied by an animated reading of “Still I Rise,” featuring the voices of celebrities she influenced, including Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys, America Ferrera and Laverne Cox. Her only son, Guy Johnson, also lends his voice.

“Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she did it all,” Winfrey told Google.

“She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence, and a fiery, fierce grace and abounding love.”

Wednesday also marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., a friend of the author’s.

For more than 30 years, in lieu of celebrating her birthday, Angelou sent flowers to Coretta Scott King on April 4.

Celine Dion …. “🎂 Happy 50th Birthday …. and many, many more 🎂 …. “!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Céline Marie Claudette Dion, CC OQ ChLD, (born 30 March 1968) is a Canadian singer. Born into a large family from Charlemagne, Quebec, Dion emerged as a teen star in the French-speaking world after her manager and future husband René Angélil mortgaged his home to finance her first record.

Dion first gained international recognition in the 1980’s by winning both the 1982 Yamaha World Popular Song Festivaland the 1988 Eurovision Song Contest where she represented Switzerland.

Following a series of French albums during the 1980′, she signed on to Epic Records in the United States.

In 1990, Dion released her debut English-language album, Unison, establishing herself as a viable pop artist in North America and other English-speaking areas of the world.

Composite Photo Update, #1 …. 🇵🇷 Honoring my country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!


~~March 10, 2018~~

HONORING PUERTO RICO

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

Today I visited my tattoo artist again for add ons and updates.

We added a ‘cemí’, several hibiscus flowers and a ‘Taíno coquí’.

A touch of red was added too.

Here they are!

RedLineB

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight.

This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since Hurricane María battered the Island. 

There are still some details and more colors to be added to the artwork.

I wanted to share this with you today.

 More will follow when completed.

Tencha, you rock!

That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

The tradition began with the first National Women’s Day in 1909 and its roots are in campaigning for better pay and voting rights.

What is this year’s theme?
The theme this year is #PressforProgress.

The website says:

“We can’t be complacent. Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity.

“A strong call to #PressforProgress. A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.”

March 8 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women

The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.

International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day.

Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem.

Thus International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women’s Day has been occurring for well over a century – and continues to grow from strength to strength.
