The Oscars and I have broken up years ago, not sure what happened between us, I suppose we were tired of each other, had different points of views, had drifted apart over time. Yet, here I find myself being mesmerized by an Oscar acceptance speech. A voice for the voiceless. Continue reading →
They say I am a baby murdering liberal, a leftie, a snowflake. They call me an atheist, just because I openly admit to NOT KNOW. Many names are used to describe people like me since last year November. Continue reading →
Most of you know that I have a Meetup group for women close to my own age. We are a menopausal bundle of joy, and the group’s only goal is to have fun and to be active. There are many other groups all over the world, Meetup.com offers something for anybody. Continue reading →
Wish I could have made it to Washington, but could only attend the march last weekend here in Ohio and it was inspirational. “Women’s rights are human rights.” You touch our rights and I will be protesting on the streets again and again just like I did back in the 80’s.
I was in tears yesterday, when I saw the picture of the little, Syrian boy who had drowned. I was born and raised in Europe, I traveled the word. I saw people begging for shelter in a foreign country. My own Grandmother had to flee in WWI and found a new home in Austria, where I was born. I visited Africa, Asia and parts of Eastern Europe. I am a first generation immigrant myself, a love immigrant through marriage to my husband. Refugees, migrants, immigrants…many names for people who have one wish only. The wish for a better life~! If this picture will not change the way we handle the situation worldwide, then nothing will. One of the easiest reblogs ever~!
Thank you Mark for posting this today!!! I believe every blogger should sign Amnesty International’s petition >>>here<<< as we all are fortunate to practice our freedom of speech on our blogs every day. As you said “…this is a love for the truth that I sincerely believe will never be tested in my heart in my lifetime, because of the sheer dumb luck of being born when and where I was born.” This should not be forgotten, so please allow me a reblog.
Today is the third anniversary of Raif Badawi’s arrest and the beginning of his imprisonment in a Saudi Arabian jail. One thousand one hundred and nineteen days since he was taken from his wife, seen in the photo above, and their children. Many protests are planned for today at embassies around the world; English PEN delivered a letter to 10 Downing St. today demanding official help in securing his immediate release. It was accepted but not by PM Cameron.
