When it comes to Hunger….ALL Lives Matter!

When it comes to Hunger...ALL Lives Matter

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!

This was in a time when the word transgender didn’t exists, Java was known as “The Prettiest Man on Earth”. At that time in Los Angeles, a law called Rule #9 made it illegal to “Impersonate by means of costume or dress a person of the opposite sex” and was used frequently by authorities to break up shows to arrest gay and trans people.

LOVE or HATE, Simple or Complicated…what you think?

“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”.

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.

The Village of Harlem, New York City 1970 photographs.

The Ladies of Sugar HillPhotos taken:

From a Paris Match issue on Harlem in 1970. Jack Garofalo  photographed the neighborhood in July of that year.

1970 was such a crossroads for fashion too.  The men in the top and bottom photos might be only a decade apart but their clothing seems to belong to two really different eras.

Genderless Children! Innovative Parenting.

Gender_neutral_parenting_-_2014-12-24_09.12.48He, SheIt?

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!”

Mark Reay is a handsome, homeless model-turned-photographer

1417517110438.cachedThis fashion world darling is Homeless!

Mark Reay is a handsome model-turned-photographer who is homeless, living in a secret ‘nest’ on top of an apartment building. He is also the subject of an award-winning film. In New York, which feels increasingly like a city with an ever-more brutal divide between the haves and the have-nots, homelessness is rising. In January of 2014, according to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, there were 67,810 homeless people in the city (based on a “point-in-time” survey taken all over the country on a single night in January); there had been 64,060 the year before—and that’s nearly 10,000 more than were recorded in 2010.
I grew up in New York in the 1970s, and while it’s fair to say that the urban landscape looks a lot better than it did back then, some things feel like they’re slipping backwards. I live in London these days, but I get back to my hometown pretty regularly, and when I travel on the subway, or walk the streets, I’m reminded of my childhood—not by Teddy Roosevelt astride his steed in front of the American Museum of Natural History, but by the number of people I see tucked into doorways with sleeping bags, or settled in for the night on a midnight train. But homelessness isn’t always obvious, as film-maker Thomas Wirthensohn discovered. Wirthensohn is a photographer and film-maker who was born in Austria but has made his home in the city for the past five years, and now his first film, Homme Less, won the Metropolis Competition Jury Prize at this year’s hugely successful DOC NYC festival in November, and rightly so: it’s a thoughtful, intriguing work, its vision of a life in New York boosted by an elegant, jazzy score from Kyle Eastwood (son of Clint, you will recall). Wirthensohn started in the working world not behind the lens, however, but in front of it, as a male model, which is where he first met Mark Reay, the subject of Homme Less.

Ferguson’s Response to the grand jury decision. Anger!

©ourtesy of The Editor

My Response. Disappointment.

Rest in Peace HATEWhat disappointments me most is how the world so easily misinterprets the atrocities of Humans by isolating a TRAGEDY to one GROUP. In this case, The St. Louis Police Department (I am NOT in defense of anyone involved mind you). Admit-tingly, No Judge or Jury can decide any case, with or without Evidence. Supposedly. In truth. No one Person or a ‘lot’ of Persons, have the CAPACITY to Judge another Human Being even with a mountain of Evidence. All one can do is what the Courts attempt to do and that is, TO GUESSTIMATE. So. Where does that leave us?

Here! In a World ravaged with FEAR, HATE and Injustice for ALL. Continue reading
