This photograph Devastated me when I first saw it and it will continue to haunt me for all for the rest of my Days. It is so difficult for me to internalize the increasing amount of poverty & hunger that the world continues to ravage the planet. The Year 2016 is no different for hunger than it was a 100 years ago. Guess thinning the Herd has not made much of an impact on the situation. People should be “ashamed”. So much technology, So much wealth..yet So very little SHARING! Seems like People are forgetting that this world belongs to You, Me & the rest of Humanity. Finding solutions to the devastation of World Hunger is a global task and should not be limited to churches, organizations & sympathetic individuals who contribute their time and money for the cause. There needs to be a conscious effort of ALL this World’s co-habitators, NOW!
“Every Human Being possesses the Power of Choice, God’s Greatest Gift to us All. Yes, God could have kept that gift for himself but instead we have all been given the freedom to enjoy this Powerful gift. So. my Question is? Why are we constantly wasting time trying to convince others to LOVE each other rather than to HATE. We constantly do this, knowing that No one Person has Power over another persons feelings, emotions, beliefs or thoughts. Does ANY ONE Person truly understand the depth an individuals LOVE or HATE”.
ORLANDO, Florida June 12, 2016: If this BASTARD had a problem seeing Two Men Kissing…then why couldn’t he just have looked the other way instead of conjuring up such an Evil deed. He like so many others that walk this Earth, must be Spawns of Satan. I will NEVER as long as I live say that Demons name out loud or to myself. And. As Respect to those that were slaughtered, I will make it my business to find out each & Everyone of those murdered, First Name & Last Name in order to give Justice, Dignity, Cause & Love for their Precious Loss of Their Life. May Each and Everyone of The Victims, Rest In Peace, Forever and Ever, Amen.
A growing number of parents, teachers and experts say we should be raising children the ‘gender-neutral’ way. But is it a good idea? And what does it even mean?
Abbie likes Spider-Man. She likes the way he can shoot webs out of his fingers. So last summer, the seven-year-old opted for Spider-Man-themed sandals. “You’re a boy, you’re a boy,” taunted her classmates. Abbie has long brown hair, a penchant for train sets, and a reserve that could be taken for shyness. But when challenged by the boys in her class, Abbie “took matters into her own hands,” as her mother Kim Carnell puts it, offering evidence of her gender by flashing them. The anatomy lesson may have proved her point, but it landed Abbie in trouble with her teachers – and it was only later that Abbie plucked up the courage to tell her mother what had prompted the incident. Abbie refused to wear the sandals again.
On a recent rainy afternoon, my son hurtled around the Imperial War Museum in London, singing loudly. “Typical boy,” a fellow visitor remarked companionably, as I chased him. “Boys need to be outside – they just don’t do museums!”
Iggy Azalea Blasts Azealia Banks for Being a ‘Bigot’ and ‘Bully’
Azealia Banks and Iggy Azalea are reigniting their beef. After Azealia put Iggy on blast during her emotional interview with Hot 97, the “Fancy” rapper has fired back.
Azealia trashed her rap rival, who was nominated for four Grammys. “That Iggy Azalea shit is not better than any fu**in’ black girl that’s rapping today,” she told Ebro and Peter Rosenberg. “The Grammys are supposed to be awards for artistic excellence… Iggy Azalea’s not excellent.”
She broke down in tears while discussing the “culture smudging” of America. “When they give these Grammys out, all it says to white kids is, ‘You’re great. You’re amazing. You can do whatever you put your mind to.’ And it says to black kids, ‘You don’t have shit. You don’t own shit, not even the shit you created yourself.’ And it makes me upset.”
Larry and Carri Williams of Sedro-Woolley of Washington State, were both found guilty of neglecting, abusing, and ultimately killing 13-year-old Hana Williams
The couple left Hana to die from hypothermia and starvation in their backyard in May 2011
Step-brother Immanuel testified he and Hana were beaten with sticks, hosed down, forced to eat frozen food and locked in closets as punishment
An autopsy showed that Hana died of hypothermia that was aggravated by chronic gastritis and malnutrition. Her bone-thin body was covered in bruises, including a lump on her shaved head, and red bloody markings on her hips, elbows and face. Defense lawyers argued that questionable parenting practices don’t necessarily amount to a crime. Hana is believed to have been 13, but no documentation of her birth in Ethiopia was available. The trial was postponed several times and her body was exhumed in January. The jury began deliberating last week. On Monday, they announced their decision to convict both the Williams’ of first degree manslaughter.
The class A felonies can mean life in prison and/or $50,000 fines, according to the Skagit Valley Herald. The jury was unable to decide if Larry Williams was guilty of homicide by abuse. In the end, only Carri Williams was convicted on that charge. Both Larry and Carri were also convicted of first degree assault on Hana’s adopted brother Immanuel. Tests on Hana’s teeth and bones gave varying estimates and experts were unable to agree on her age. Her age was significant because the homicide by abuse charge applies only if the victim was younger than 16, though experts were unable to say for sure if she was or was not. She was adopted in 2008.
