“A war when more children and women die than grown armed men is a very dirty war.” – UN Special Advisor Jan Egeland

WhiteFlagAs the war in Syria enters its seventh year, many of us feel helpless. We hear stories about children such as Fares, a 6-year-old from Syria who has never seen a classroom in his life, and we wish there was something we could do.

But we must not give up hope. Together, we can take action. Together, the Messengers of Humanity can show their solidarity with the Syrian people.

Remember, you are not alone

The United Nations and our partners in Syria are delivering aid to millions of civilians, trying their best to reach as many people as possible. And on 4 and 5 May, world leaders will come together in Brussels to discuss the future of Syria and to find a lasting political resolution.

Children’s suffering has hit rock bottom in Syria as the conflict reaches six years. The Pitufina_Ansamsong, which is composed and donated to UNICEF by Zade Dirani, UNICEF Regional Ambassador for the Middle East and North Africa, is a message of hope from Syria’s children to the children and people of the world, with a simple request to get their childhood back.

The song is performed by 10 year-old Ansam, an internally displaced girl in Syria who was born blind. The song was shot in an area of Syria heavily damaged by the fighting. Children performing as part of the choir are all internally displaced and participate, along with Ansam, in UNICEF psychosocial support programmes.

Action 1:  Make sure that Syria is not forgotten – share on social media

Action 2: Encourage universities to offer scholarships for refugees

MG_121For refugee students, not being able to continue their studies is devastating. Help them by writing an e-mail or a letter to your own university or a college near you and ask them to support a refugee. You can also e-mail major universities in the USA, asking them to admit more refugees. Here is a handy template. 

Action 3: Support internally displaced people in Syria

We hear a lot about refugees who seek safety outside Syria, but more than six million Syrians are displaced within their own country. They are often forced to flee at very smilie_shop_011short notice and have to leave everything behind. Many of them find refuge with host families, but others have to stay in overcrowded shelters. As the conflict continues, they are struggling to find food and water and are in dire need of humanitarian aid. If you want to help internally displaced people in Syria, you can donate to the UN’s humanitarian fund in Syria. Your donation will provide emergency food, water, shelter, medicine and other life-saving assistance to those who need it most.

Action 4: Help refugees to integrate into a new culture

16684238_1789447117974151_2669808619472774020_nRefugees often feel lonely and isolated when they try to restart their life in a new country. Could you see yourself mentoring a refugee family? Imagine teaching the kids your language or helping the parents figure out the public transport system. Even small gestures of friendship can mean a great deal! A quick Google search can show you which groups and local non-profits are active in your area and looking for volunteers.

🇬🇧 Prince William on Diana

prince on dianna header2

“I think the biggest disease the world suffers from in this day and age is the disease of people feeling unloved. I know that I can give love for a minute, for half an hour, for a day, for a month, but I can give. I am very happy to do that, I want to do that.” – Princess Diana

Prince William and Prince Harry had a special task on Thursday – presenting young people from around the world with an award established in memory of their mother, Princess Diana.

Twenty young recipients traveled to St. James’s Palace to receive the Legacy Award set up by the Diana Award charity to recognize the “monumental impact” they have made on prince-william3society.

The royal brothers gave a moving speech before they handed out the much-deserved awards. “This summer marks 20 years since our mother died. She achieved so much in her life. From helping to shatter the stigma around AIDS, to fighting to ban landmines and supporting the homeless — she touched the lives of millions,” William, 34, said.

The truth is, though, that she was taken at only 36, just slightly older than I am today. But of course, we can never know what our mother would have gone on to do,” he continued. “But in one sense Harry and I feel that our mother lives on in the countless acts of compassion and bravery that she inspires in others.

“Seated here today are twenty extraordinary young people who are doing just that. We are all too accustomed to stories about young people’s lack of connection to their communities and families. I see every day in my work, as our mother did in hers, that this just simply is not true – these 20 young people are just the tip of the iceberg. We all need to celebrate what today’s generation are achieving.”

Harry, 32, added: “One of the things our mother taught William and I was the value of doing good when no one is watching. She visited hospitals late at night to comfort patients; she spent hours writing letters to privately support the work of others; she achieved a lot by shining a spotlight, but she worked just as hard when the cameras were gone. “It is this spirit of quiet selflessness that unites these 20 recipients of the Legacy Award.

Our mother once said that if we all play our part in making our children feel valued, the result will be tremendous. This result was tremendous.”

Among the remarkable stories of social activism and selfless volunteering was that of lellen & B womannMercy Ngulube, 18, from Cardiff, Wales, “who has used her own personal painful experience of stigma and discrimination to drive her commitment and pursuit of equality for young people living with HIV,” the charity says. Mercy, who was born with HIV, has campaigned against the stigma of HIV and AIDS often anonymously by using “social media to counter and correct online misinformation about HIV and challenge negativity and ignorance.”She is the current chairman of Children’s HIV Association Youth Committee that campaigns on behalf of young people living with HIV and met Harry in Durban at an international conference on HIV and AIDS.

From America, Jaylen Arnold, 16, was honored for his anti-bullying crusade and Faith Dickinson, 14, from Toronto, Canada, has an award for her Cuddles for Cancer blanket-making project.

Arnold, from Lakeland, Florida, tells PEOPLE that William had told him “he cared a lot about anti-bullying and how he loved what I was doing and Prince Harry was talking how important it was what I and others do. He was talking about using social media as a tool to spread the message. It was really great.”

“What we need to give you all are the tools, the toolbox for the digital world. You need to have the right tools to be able to smash the stigma out there and tear down barriers,” the prince told him.

“Meeting the princes was amazing. It wasn’t just a meet-and-greet they were genuinely interested in what we did and were asking questions. You can tell they care a lot.”

At the ceremony, Prince Harry joked with Dickinson that she was the most talented fellow redhead in the room.

As she received her Legacy Award from the brothers on stage, Harry leaned forward and told her she was “by far the most impressive redhead there!” 

“They both said congratulations and that I deserve it,” she said of getting one of the 20 awards.

One of the judges on the panel s Julia Samuel, Founder Patron of Child Bereavement UK b man yellow2and a friend Diana, who said she “was humbled by reading the extraordinary achievements of every young person who was nominated for this award.”

“The winners are truly inspirational — often coming from extremely difficult circumstances. It left me feeling profoundly hopeful for our future knowing these young people will be part of that future and our future leaders.”

Tessy Ojo, the Diana Award’s chief executive, added, “Today is about two things; celebrating young people for their selfless contribution to society, their courage and bravery, sometimes in the face of adversity and demonstrating to young people that we, as a collective, value them.”

In addition to meeting Diana’s sons at the palace, the winners will be able to access the Diana Award’s development program that helps enhance their skills in four key areas of leadership, community development, social entrepreneurship and technology for good.

The Diana Award runs programs from anti-bullying to encouraging mentoring which have received public support from William and Harry.

🇬🇧 Prince William Tipped For Straight Ally Gong At British LGBT Awards

LGBT Award header

“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.” – Princess Diana

prince william & chuckiePrince William looks set to be honored at this year’s British LGBT Awards.

Following his history-making appearance on the front cover of Attitude magazine last year, in which he spoke out against homophobic bullying among young people, the Duke Of Cambridge now looks set to bag the Celebrity Straight Ally award when the ceremony is held later this month, with a source even suggesting he could be putting in an appearance.

An insider said: “Wills has become a bit of a surprise ally of the LGBT community after passionately speaking out against homophobic bullying. It has won him legions of gay fans.

“His support could see him picking up a British LGBT Award next month and I know awards organisers are working with Kensington Palace to secure him for the ceremony.”

smiley-king-23118707

Alongside his cover shoot with the gay men’s lifestyle magazine, Prince William also gave an interview, in which he said: “The young gay, lesbian and transgender individuals I met through Attitude are truly brave to speak out and to give hope to people who are going through terrible bullying right now.

P William & Smilie“Their sense of strength and optimism should give us all encouragement to stand up to bullying wherever we see it.

“What I would say to any young person reading this who’s being bullied for their sexuality: don’t put up with it – speak to a trusted adult, a friend, a teacher, Childline, Diana Award or some other service and get the help you need. You should be proud of the person you are and you have nothing to be ashamed of.”

The Ethics of Kindness – ‘Pay it Forward’

Not everyone associates ethics with kindness. We think of it as part of good manners or civility. Yet, treating others with kindness evokes The Golden Rule – to treat others the way you want to be treated. One example of how we can take tangible actions to treat others with kindness is to “Pay it Forward.”

April 28 is ‘Pay it Forward’ Day. Pay it Forward is a global initiative that exists to make a difference by creating a string of kind actions felt across the world. The idea is even small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can literally change the world for the better. The…

🇨🇦 The Everett Klippert Story

header

“Canadians know our country is made stronger because of our diversity, not in spite of it.”

Mr. Trudeau decided to recommend the pardon and order the review after The Globe and Mail raised Mr. Klippert’s case with the government this week, as part of its investigation into circumstances surrounding Mr. Klippert’s conviction. “Everett Klippert’s case was instrumental in the government’s decision to decriminalize homosexual acts between consenting adults,” Cameron Ahmad, press secretary to the Prime Minister, said in a statement.

pride

klippert5bEverett George Klippert, who was born in 1926, was convicted of 18 counts of gross indecency by a Calgary court in 1960, and spent four years in prison after pleading guilty to having consensual sex short of intercourse with other men. (Intercourse, or “buggery,” was a separate offence.) After a second conviction in 1965 in Hay River, NWT, on four additional counts of gross indecency, and a sentence of a further three years, the Crown attorney in Yellowknife applied to have him designated a dangerous sexual offender.

Two psychiatrists who examined Mr. Klippert said that he was not a pedophile or in any way inclined to violence – they found him “intelligent,” “courteous” and “sensitive” – but concluded he was likely to once again seek out sex with men upon his release. For that reason, Justice John Sissons went ahead and designated Mr. Klippert a dangerous sexual offender, subject to life imprison– ment.

The Supreme Court of Canada upheld the designation in a 3-to-2 ruling in 1967, causing a furor in Parliament and the press. A month later, then-justice minister Pierre Trudeau introduced legislation that, among other provisions, decriminalized consensual homosexual acts between two adult men.

“There’s no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation,” he told reporters, echoing a Globe and Mail editorial of the week before.

cdfb214e-87f3-49a9-bd99-4eb1d324fcaeA similar bill became law in 1969, when Mr. Trudeau was prime minister. But for reasons that remain unclear, Mr. Klippert was not released on parole until 1971, having spent a total of 10 years in prison.

The government’s statement this week said: “As Canadians, we know that protecting and promoting fundamental human rights must be an imperative for governments and individuals alike – and this includes gender identity, gender expression, and sexual orientation. We have made great strides in securing legal rights for the LGBTQ2 [lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, queer, and two-spirited] community in Canada … but the fight chuckie officersmilie policeto end discrimination is not over and a lot of hard work remains.

After his release from prison, Mr. Klippert moved to Edmonton, where he found work as a truck driver. He died in 1996, at the age of 69.

Laws prohibiting sexual acts between men, accompanied by very stiff penalties, predate Confederation. (The laws did not appear to contemplate the possibility of sex between women.) In the 1950s, governments in developed countries confronted two conflicting forces: the fear that homosexuals either were inclined to support communism or susceptible to blackmail by communists, and increasing pressure by voters – especially younger voters – to liberalize laws relating to sexuality.

While England and Wales decriminalized homosexual acts in 1967, in Canada the government of John Diefenbaker decided to toughen existing laws. In 1961, it changed the definition of a dangerous sexual offender to include anyone who was likely to re-offend after committing a sexual offence. Mr. Klippert was the first and only person to be held in preventive detention – in effect, a life sentence – because a judge found he was likely to continue to seek out other men for sex after he was released.

Although the Supreme Court upheld the designation, Chief Justice John Cartwright wrote a stinging dissent, saying “it means that every man in Canada who indulges in sexual misconduct … with another consenting adult male and who appears likely, if at liberty, to continue such misconduct should be sentenced to preventive detention,” which “would bring about serious overcrowding” in the nation’s prisons.

🇨🇦 How This 15-Year-Old Diana Award Recipient’s Family Tragedy Inspired Her to Help Others

Bailey Dunbar header3

“Everyone of us needs to show how much we care for each other and, in the process, care for ourselves.” ~ Princess Diana

Bailey DunbarBailey Dunbar👼 is only 15 years old, but she’s already seen more tragedy than many face in a lifetime. Her twin sister, Morgan, 263d022c92752ed6e2b035b1410bf332committed suicide when they were just 13 years old after her sister was targeted by bullieslittle devil

Two years later, the  Fort Saskatchewan, Canada,  native is channeling her loss into something powerful. She’s now honoring Morgan’s memory by fighting bullying and cyber-bullying,  and working on raising mental health awareness among young people.

Bailey👼 is leading the charge on anti-bullying  with her organization, Morgan’s Memorial Mission SocietyThe group engages in volunteer work to combat bullying and encourage kindness and inclusivity — and won aCrown2Untitled-2Diana Award for her efforts last year.

Dunbar👼 faced bullies little devil of her own after her sister’s death. After Morgan’s suicide, one of the bullies little devil who had tormented her turned his attention towards Bailey👼 . The abuse got so bad, that at a point, her parents were forced Albert-Einstein-albert-einstein-genius-smiley-emoticon-000718-facebookto get the police 👮involved, she says. The bully little devil was later made to apologize and stop contacting Bailey.👼

Seeing the treatment her sister suffered through her own eyes, Bailey👼 was inspired to make a change. She founded Morgan’s Memorial Mission Society, and with the help of her mom, she was granted official non-profit status.

“After I experienced what it was like to be bullied,  I finally understood why you wouldn’t MISSION MEMORIAL SOCIETYwant to go to school or go out,” Bailey 👼  says. “I decided to take action because after having my own experience, I realized it’s not okay.

“A lot of people are insecure about themselves, and they’ll take it out on other people instead of talking about it.”

Morgan’s Mission Memorial Society has been involved in several projects that hope to spark conversation about bullying, mental health awareness and suicide prevention. Bailey👼 has hosted a benefit concert with Robb Nash, done multiple events with Project Semicolon, smilie king newanother suicide prevention and mental health organization, in her hometown of   Edmonton and around Alberta, Canada,  and spoke out about her own bullying  story and losing her sister on “Beautiful Me Day.”

Bailey👼 worked with Fort Saskatchewan Mayor Gale Katchur and Jessica Littlewood, a member of the legislative assembly, on a proclamation for World Suicide Prevention Day in the town in 2015.

“They were shocked that at such a young age, that I’m doing all of this to change how people see mental illness and bullying” she said of her experience working with the government ministers.

Full Circle

header2

“It was so precious for me to see people really change their mindset about the problems they face. That’s what I want for my people.” ~ Sarah Rogers, Elder and Cultural Support Worker, Inuvik

Part of being human is getting hurt. Sometimes we hurt others; sometimes others hurt us. We even hurt ourselves. Holding onto this hurt and allowing it to dictate the course of our lives can have negative long-term consequences. Forgiveness can change the shape of our journeys. It can release anger, fear, judgement and resentment, and open the door to peace and a positive future.

FULL CIRCLE offers customized forgiveness programs for hurt people and communities. We excel in creating safe, experiential opportunities for people of all ages to explore what forgiveness means—and doesn’t mean—in their lives.  We also consult with non-profits, employers, community groups and schools interested in restorative solutions to repairing harm and peace building.

Who We Are

foundersWe, Katy Hutchison and Shannon Moroney, have walked the difficult and complex paths to forgiveness in our own lives. Now we work together to help our clients do the same.

We are Canadian women affected by violent crime, best-selling authors, sought-after public speakers, and advocates of restorative justice. We are volunteers with Leave Out Violence (LOVE), members of the international Forgiveness Project and we share our stories around the world. We first partnered in 2009 to create the F-Word, an experiential workshop designed to give participants an opportunity to explore what Forgiveness means and its transformative potential for healing. Since then, we have brought our life-changing programs to diverse settings in communities around the world.  

SHANNON MORONEY  was a teacher and counsellor when her husband kidnapped and boy orange3sexually assaulted two women in 2005. After personally discovering the lack of help available for families of criminals, and the vast ripple-effect of violent crime, she became a restorative justice advocate who speaks internationally on the topic.

In 2011, Shannon published her memoir Through the Glass, which became an instant national bestseller and was nominated for several awards, including the Governor General’s Award. In 2015, she co-produced “In Harm’s Way” for CBC Radio’s The Current. She lives in Toronto where she is remarried and the mother of twins.

KATY HUTCHISON was widowed and left with four year old twins following the murder of her husband in 1997. In meeting with the young man responsible, she learned that the only way through the trauma was by forgiveness and education.

Her memoir, Walking After Midnight (2006), was endorsed by the Dalai Lama and inspired Lifetime Network’s movie “Bond of Silence” (2010). Katy received the Me to We Social Action Award (2005) and was nominated for the Courage to Come Back award (2003). In 2013 she delivered a TEDx talk on rethinking education. Katy lives in Victoria. She speaks internationally on social responsibility & restorative justice issues.

International Day of Happiness

Ahead of International Day, UN and Smurfs team up to promote happiness and sustainable development

18 March 2017 – Every person – no matter how big, small or blue – can make the world more peaceful, equitable and healthy, the United Nations today told young people at a special ceremony for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that included the Smurfs and a handover of the key to Smurfdom.

81998_Happy4Voice actors from the upcoming animated movie Smurfs: The Lost Village joined 1,500 students from the international Model UN conference to celebrate the upcoming International Day of Happiness, which focuses on personal well-being, and the SDGs, which include decent work for all, education and health services.

In a special blue carpet presentation, the United States stars of the movie – Demi Lovato, who voices “Smurfette”, Joe Manganiello who is “Hefty” and Mandy Patinkin or “Papa Smurf” – honoured three young Pitufina_students promoting the SDGs in their communities with a symbolic key to the Smurfs Village in recognition of their work.

“On behalf of all Smurfdom, thank you for your work in awakening everything, in your community, through you social media, all over the world, in the ways that you have chosen to encourage people everywhere to make this world a better place for those who are so vulnerable in every way imaginable,” Mr. Patinkin told Karen Jerath, Sarina Divan and Noor Samee.

Small Smurfs Big Goals

Ms. Jerath, who is 20 years old, invented a containment device that could prevent offshore oil spills and ensure the protection of marine life. She was joined by Ms. Divan, 17, who Brainy_Smurfexpanded a UN Foundation girl empowerment initiative at her high school and beyond, and Mr. Samee, also 17, a UNICEF blogger and advocate on social justice issues.

Given a giant key with the SDG multi-coloured logo by UN Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, Cristina Gallach, the students were told “the world needs you to continue.”

 

“Never be afraid to speak up and to make this world a wonderful, beautiful, hopeful, optimistic place full of freedom, joy, justice and dignity, good food, good water, good opportunities for people everywhere, forever,” said Mr. Patinkin.

The “Small Smurfs Big Goals” campaign was created to encourage people to visit SmallSmurfsBigGoals.com to find out how to contribute to achieving the SDGs, and to share information, ideas and images on social media.

Hefty-originalAs part of today’s festivities, the UN Postal Administration unveiled a special edition stamp sheet featuring the Small Smurfs Big Goals campaign.

The stamps, which feature images of the Smurfs and the SDG logos, were presented by UN Assistant Secretary-General for Management, Stephen Cutts, and the Belgian Ambassador to the United Nations, Marc Pecsteen de Buytswerve.

The event, held at the UN General Assembly in New York, was organized by the UN, UNICEF and UN Foundation, ahead of the International Day of Happiness marked annually on 20 March.

Happness Day

In 2015, the UN launched 17 SDGs that seek to end poverty, reduce inequality, and protect our 1e1b3cdbf05d89c69d70d9be14799a10planet – three key aspects that lead to well-being and happiness.

Along with New York, celebrations were held around the world to mark the campaign and the SDGs.

On Monday, the film cast along with the UN, UNICEF and UN Foundation will be at the Empire State Building to turn the iconic tower blue in honour of the International Day of Happiness and the Small Smurfs Big Goals campaign.

International Women’s Day 2017

header-womens-day2

You couldn’t be where you are today without a good education. ~ ONE

What is International Women’s Day?

chuckie-holing-sign-5The idea for an International Women’s Day arose around the turn of the 20th century out of a long-standing movement for women to participate equally in society.

The first International Women’s Day was observed on March 19, 1911 in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland. That day, more than one million women and men showed their support by participating in public events. Between 1913 and 1917, women elsewhere in Europe began to celebrate the day as well.

Over time, International Women’s Day has grown to become a global day of recognition and celebration. The theme was expanded by the United Nations in 1975 with the International Women’s Year. By 1977, the United Nations had adopted a resolution designating March 8 as International Women’s Day. Today, International Women’s Day is a national holiday in many countries and celebrated in many more. Following the United Nations’ lead, Canada chose March 8 as International Women’s Day (IWD).

Each year, March 8th – and the week in which it falls – provides an opportunity to take stock of our progress towards gender equality and to honour the contributions women have made and are making — both in Canada and around the world.

But wait… gender equality already exists, doesn’t it?

Equality between women and men is enshrined in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and the Government of Canada is committed to upholding gender equality in all sectors of Canadian society. We have made great strides in many areas, such as education and workforce participation.

Nevertheless, challenges remain:

womens-day-2017

We’ll organize people across the country and around the world to make sure that girls and women are at the heart of our poverty-fighting strategy by promoting their access to education. When girls get an education, they are less likely to become child brides, contract HIV, and they have greater economic opportunities for the rest of their lives, which is good for everyone.

Right now, 130 million girls are out of school.

You wouldn’t be where you are today without an education – and it’s in your power RIGHT NOW to help these girls get access to an education.

If you care, ACT. Add your name to our letter, and we’ll deliver it in-person to leaders all across the globe this International Women’s Day, March 8th.

A Letter to Leaders

But because poverty is sexist, 130 million girls across the world are denied this basic right. Indeed, if the number of girls out of school formed a country, it would be the tenth largest on the planet – bigger than Japan or Germany.

All children deserve a good education, but in the poorest countries girls are denied it more often than boys. Education is vital for moving out of poverty. Every additional year of school that a girl completes increases her future earnings, which is good for her family, her community and her country.

We cannot afford to squander the potential of 130 million girls to cure diseases or end wars, invent brilliant technology or revolutionize an industry…or simply to access opportunity.

We are coming together and uniting across our divides to get every girl into school and to make sure she gets a quality education once she’s there.

But we need you to do the same.

Your education helped you to get where you are today – and it is in your power to help millions of girls to get theirs. Please act now, with the right policies and the necessary funds.

Show us that politics can work for the people – starting with the people who need it most.

Canada & Greeders ~ The Hidden Hatred

freefreefree4

I have watched, listened and learnt so lets talk about Canada, where men account for three terry-2015out of every four suicides, with seven men dying by suicide every day. And the risk is even greater for gay and bisexual men. Where the middle class and above are cherished, honored and respected and all others degraded and sentenced to a life of struggles, desperation the result of most suffering from mental health issues, resulting in…suicide. The hidden hatred within it’s walls for the most vulnerable of it’s population,  LGBT peoples, Indigenous people’s, Muslin peoples and outsiders if you will etc, a place where still today Racism still runs ram-pit, not to mention a place that even women are beaten and badder beyond belief and murdered or cast out and Homelessness is raging out of control for forks sake , and I can go on.

Now at a ripe 56 years old and an OUT non-closeted member of the hidden LGBT community in Canada all my life I know only too well the difference between doing whats right because it’s legislation and doing whats right because it’s comes from the heart. Being called names, beaten up and even sexually assaulted, also where for the most part kids and adults alike are being diagnosed with depression, anxiety, borderline personality disorder and post-traumatic stress disorder which is the norm.

slide_360376_4031618_compressedAnd due to this perception by society, which sickens me to the core, I am shocked when I realize the closeted LGBT people I have met over the years in Canada whom still hide and spend their whole life suffering in pain and anguish, hiding behind a woman in marriage or just a relationship terrified to be themselves.

In Canada, only one in five people with depression get appropriate treatment. And in Ontario, only one in three patients discharged from psychiatric hospitalization will get a follow-up within the month. Why is Canada doing so poorly in helping people with mental illness? {because it’s not from the heart but rather for Greed~Terry.K}

Dr. Paul Kurdyak and Sanjeev Sockalingam explain why treatment is so difficult to come by. Paul Kurdyak is an expert advisor with EvidenceNetwork.ca, a psychiatrist and clinician scientist at CAMH (the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health). Sanjeev Sockalingam is a psychiatrist and Deputy Psychiatrist-in-Chief at the University Health Network and Associate Professor at the University of Toronto.

With all due respect I also have to say that more than 70 countries have Anti-Gay Laws (Death penalty) which include country’s like Russia, Sudan, Saudi Arabia and Iran to name a few.

I do have respect for the leaders of these counties in question (excluding the newly formed American Government, whom should know better) for being honest unlike, Canada whom have created fake legislation said to protect all citizens, that I have fought and suffered to obtain more than 30 years, which in reality, I believe it’s only to quit those protesting, because as sure as I sit here, they will stick a knife in your back the first chance they get whom I have no respect for at all.

As a survivor of a suicide attempt at 19 years of age I now long for my time to cease on this planet, which I truly believe to be hell.

There are only two types of people I despise, and that is Liar’s, perjurer, deceiver’s and thieves, call them what you like but Canada is over whelmed with this type of individual that I call Greeders whom will walk on or over anyone to satisfy their own needs & greed, the place that if you Rob a bank, your life is finished but that same bank can rob you without repercussions.

Millions of people continue to live in places that outlaw same sex relationships and prosecute people for being gay. In five countries and in parts of two others, homosexuality is still punishable with the death penalty, while a further 70 imprison citizens because of their sexual orientation. ~ United Nations Feb 10, 2014.

slide_360376_4031617_compressedBelow is what one man from Ireland had to say about living in Canada after immigrating here to Vancouver and being here just five years, this is an excerpt from his review Pros & Cons of living in Canada:

High taxes, not just on wages but on everything you purchase and sometimes yearly on certain things like the value assessed property tax, high commercial tax, high living tax, just high tax on everything like GST and HST.

The pay gap between struggling and comfortable is so far removed from reality that half the people in Vancouver can’t afford to leave Vancouver because it costs so much just to survive.

Services, all of them are expensive. I never once imagined an incoming call could be considered a charge.

I have once again filed a Claim in The Federal Court of Canada against the Royal Bank of Canada on January 21, 2017 and I don’t even know if it’s been accepted or declined to date!

These are a few of my thoughts on the evils and how my Country has failed me!

About US

We believe water is the way

To break the cycle of poverty. To protect and save lives. To turn time spent into time saved. To make a bright future possible for all. We are here to break down the barriers between save-water-2d-mascotpeople and access to safe water and sanitation. We’ve already helped millions. Join us and together we can get safe water to millions more.

Water is a fundamental human need, yet 663 million people worldwide lack access to safe water. 2.4 billion people worldwide lack access to a toilet. When it takes everyday hours to find and collect water, it’s hard to find time for commerce and community. It’s hard to get through a full day at school. It’s hard to prosper without safe water.

b6fa5dcd7dee04efbb32465c6b0ad961We are Water.org. We’re here to bring water and sanitation to the world. We want to make it safe, accessible and cost effective because we believe that water is the way to empowering a better life that we can all share in, worldwide.

We are an international nonprofit organization that has positively transformed more than five million lives around the world through access to safe water and sanitation. Founded by Gary White and Matt Damon, we have been pioneering market-driven financial solutions to the global water crisis for 25 years, giving women hope, children health and communities a future.

give-water-today

Our approach is proven and powerful

  • secert-service-man-2We think in terms of practical economic solutions. Charity alone is not a long-term solution. We seek sustainable financial solutions that last and grow, so more and more people can equip themselves with access to the water and sanitation solutions they need.
  • We believe in the power and autonomy of the people we serve. They are people with financial power, rights, and the capabilities to define their own futures. They know the specific needs of their communities and what will work; we have resources that can help make it happen.
  • We have the experience and the passion to go the distance. We’ve been dedicated to this issue for over 25 years, building solutions, making progress, and looking at the problem from every angle to find new and better ways to put water expertise to work.

The Jane Goodall Institude

header2

ABOUT JANE

In July 1960, at the age of 26, Jane Goodall traveled from England to what is now Tanzania and ventured into the little-known world of wild chimpanzees.

14-1Equipped with little more than a notebook, binoculars, and her fascination with wildlife, Jane Goodall braved a realm of unknowns angel-smiley-emoticon-1to give the world a remarkable window into humankind’s closest living relatives. Through more than 50 years of groundbreaking work, Dr. Jane Goodall has not only shown us the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction; she has also redefined species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. Today she travels the world, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees and environmental crises, urging each of us to take action on behalf of all living things and planet we share.

EARLY DISCOVERIES

When Jane Goodall entered the forest of Gombe, the world knew very little about proof-jane-goodall-128400chimpanzees, and even less about their unique genetic kinship to humans. She took an unorthodox approach in her field research, immersing herself in their habitat and their lives to experience their complex society as a neighbor rather than a distant observer and coming to understand them not only as a species, but also as individuals with emotions and long-term bonds. Dr. Jane Goodall’s discovery in 1960 that chimpanzees make and use tools is considered one of the greatest achievements of twentieth-century scholarship. Her field research at Gombe transformed our understanding of chimpanzees and redefined the relationship between humans and animals in ways that continue to emanate around the world.

PROGRAM ADVOCACY

jane-goodall-smilie2When Dr. Jane Goodall speaks, people listen. We use our voice as an organization to speak up on the issues that matter for the long-term well-being of humans, other animals and the planet we all share.

Dr. Goodall has long been an advocate for the dignity and well-being of all living things, and the Jane Goodall Institute shares her belief that speaking out on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves is our responsibility as fellow inhabitants of this shared earth. Environmental advocacy, animal welfare and human rights are just a few of the issues we are passionate about both by being thought leaders and influencers, and by bringing all voices into discussion rooms on topics that matter.

ap0216-3-dg

Policy That Protects and Leads to Progress 

JGI promotes this  ideology  when we seek to affect the laws and policies that impact the lives of people, animals and the environment. Whether it be combatting the use of chimpanzees in the media, working to end the use of great apes as biomedical test subjects, protecting the rights of indigenous peoples, or speaking out in favor of legislature and coalitions we believe will have a positive impact on our planet- JGI takes action to make the world a better place by influencing the powerful systems which run it. While we have succeeded in many areas – there is more work to do. Change starts with passion, and our passion is only growing.

roots

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots is the Jane Goodall Institute’s (JGI) global youth-led community action program, comprised of thousands of young people inspired by Dr. Jane Goodall to make the world a better place.

albert-einstein-albert-einstein-genius-smiley-emoticon-000718-facebookThe program builds on the legacy and vision of Dr. Jane Goodall to place the power and resources for creating practical solutions to big challenges in the hands of the young people. 

Using the Roots & Shoots 4-Step model, young people map their communities to identify local needs, prioritize their findings and implement a service campaign of their choice to make a difference for the issues they are most passionate about.

Africa in My Blood: An Autobiography in Letters : the Early Years

book-coverAFRICA IN MY BLOOD is an extraordinary self-portrait in letters of Jane Goodall’s early years, from childhood to the publication of IN THE SHADOW OF MAN, revealing this remarkable woman more vividly than anything published before, by her or about her. We see her at eleven founding the Alligator Society (“You have to be able to recognize 10 birds, 10 dogs, 10 trees and 5 butterflies OR moths”); at seventeen developing a crush on the local minister (“He has a beautiful long nose and he loves dogs”); at twenty punting at Oxford — and falling out of the boat (“And I stood in the water — up to my chest — and roared and roared with laughter”); at twenty-two working at a film company and saving for a trip to Africa.

The Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation

beforetheflood-header23

Clean air, water, and a livable climate are inalienable human rights. And solving this crisis is not a question of politics, it is a question of our own survival.” ~ Leonardo DiCaprio, U.N. Messenger of Peace for the Climate, United Nations, 2014

Mission

sign-circleThe Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation is dedicated to the long-term health and wellbeing of all Earth’s inhabitants. Through collaborative partnerships, we support innovative projects that protect vulnerable wildlife from extinction, while restoring balance to threatened ecosystems and communities. LDF’s grantmaking program encompasses six focus areas:

  1. leonardo-dicaprio-smilieWILDLAND CONSERVATION
  2. CLIMATE CHANGE
  3. INDIGENOUS RIGHTS
  4. MARINE CONSERVATION
  5. INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS
  6. PUBLIC ADVOCACY

LEONARDO DICAPRIO FOUNDATION CLIMATE ACTION PLAN

The LDF Climate Action Plan is a set of climate change solutions and targets that we believe can frame a universal strategy to combat climate change. We believe this plan can support visionary leaders in every nation who are attempting to find the appropriate combination of responses through policy, technology, and finance.

We present 8 sets of goals and implementation strategies in order of their ability to slow the pace of greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere, that will provide the permanent solutions of a sustainable environment and a robust economy for generations to come.

Before The Flood, The Film

If you could know the truth about the threat of climate change — would you want to know? Before the Flood, presented by National Geographic, features Leonardo DiCaprio on a aboutjourney as a United Nations Messenger of Peace, traveling to five continents and the Arctic to witness climate change firsthand. He goes on expeditions with scientists uncovering the reality of climate change and meets with political leaders fighting against inaction. He also discovers a calculated disinformation campaign orchestrated by powerful special interests working to confuse the public about the urgency of the growing climate crisis. With unprecedented access to thought leaders around the world, DiCaprio searches for hope in a rising tide of catastrophic news.

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Fisher Stevens and Academy Award®-smiley20deliverywinning actor, environmental activist and U.N. Messenger of Peace Leonardo DiCaprio, Before the Flood presents a riveting account of the dramatic changes now occurring around the world due to climate change, as well as the actions we as individuals and as a society can take to prevent the disruption of life on our planet. Beyond the steps we can take as individuals, the film urges viewers to push their elected officials in supporting the use of alternative energy sources such as solar and wind power.

world-smilie“We need everyone to demand bold action from their political leaders and to elect representatives who have their best interests at heart, not the interests of corporations to perpetuate a cycle of greed and destruction,” says DiCaprio. “This documentary shows how interconnected the fate of all humanity is — but also the power we all possess as individuals to build a better future for our planet.”

Before the Flood premieres in theaters on October 21st and will air globally on the National Geographic Channel on October 30th in 171 countries and 45 languages, you can now also catch the English version below.

Victims and Survivors of Crime Week (Canada)

violence-banner2

Learning to live

Four years of judicial proceedings… It’s a long time! Yes, but putting an “end” to 25 years 6i3zxbkmof fear, shame, disgust, mistrust, feelings of injustice and negative repercussions of all kinds in my life, is worth the effort! It has been very hard, I won’t deny it, but I’m satisfied at having done it! I’m proud that I held on till the end. Luckily, I wasn’t alone. Counsellors from the CALACS and the CAVAC were there with me to accompany me, and the investigator in charge of my file was very nice and respectful.

jody-smilieWhen I started these proceedings, four years ago, I knew it would be long and difficult. It has been even longer and more difficult than what I had expected! Not encouraging, would you say? I would answer: let’s look at the positive side of things! And positive things did happen, indeed, from the moment I walked out of the Courthouse, feeling that I had recovered my freedom, my confidence, my life!

Today, I feel free. My heart is lighter. I really feel that I have turned an important page of my life, and I am deeply relieved of it. I cannot forget, of course. But I learn to live, day after day, with what I experienced during childhood. And when, for the glimpse of a moment, I remember that right now my aggressor is behind bars, 572320-tn_041 and that he was declared guilty in the eyes of society, my relief is even greater!

Ok, he didn’t receive the sentence that I would have given him (prison for life!), but I trust God that He’ll take care of judging him, for eternity.

Today, I realise that the judicial proceedings I instituted against my aggressor have made me a stronger woman, who can walk with her head held up high and look forward… to the future. That’s it!canadian-flag-background-for-canada-map

So, four years, to enable me to blossom for the rest of my life, I say: YES! I encourage each woman victim of sexual assault to denounce and file charges against her aggressor. Don’t be a victim anymore and get your dignity back, your confidence, your life!

We Matter~Indigenous youth who are feeling alone

header2

I Matter~You Matter~We Matter

e861fb7b5d22fc4a6f97d642b05b8b72We Matter is a national campaign designed to share the message to Indigenous youth struggling with suicidal thoughts and other hardships that no matter how hopeless or lonely things feel, there is always a way forward.

Suicide rates for Indigenous youth are several times higher that of other Canadians, as well as instances of addiction, abuse, violence, and many other issues. We believe this doesn’t need to be the case.

OUR MANDATE

native-girls2Our mandate is to communicate to Indigenous youth that their lives matter, and to provide resources to encourage and support those in crisis while fostering unity and resiliency. We provide a forum for people across the country to share video messages of hope and positivity with youth who are going through a hard time. By sharing our stories, our words of encouragement, and our authentic messages of hope and resilience, we help to make a community stronger. We remind youth that I matter. You matter. We matter.

MEET WE MATTER

The We Matter Campaign was concepted in the summer of 2016 by two First Nations with-love-smiley-emoticonsiblings, Kelvin and Tunchai Redvers, whom started We Matter with the belief that hope can be brought to Indigenous youth who are feeling alone.

Growing up in the Northwest Territories, they saw potential to connect Aboriginal youth, and provide help and guidance in an interactive, multi-media format. You can take part – by creating a video, artwork, or story – or simply watching and sharing (to friends, family, facebook, or even schools), you can also visit us at our website or facebook.

OUR GOALS

As We Matter grows, we hope to have video, art and written submissions from every Aboriginal community across Canada so that all youth can feel the support of their home community. We encourage you to add your voice. Your feelings of sadness, your feelings of hope, your own lived experience and your resilience can help remind youth why their lives matter. Every voice added makes a real difference.

 CANADA IS HUGE, AND NOT ALL COMMUNITIES HAVE READILY ACCESSIBLE INTERNET CONNECTIONS.

We are reaching out to share our messages in hard copy formats. Please connect with us if you would like to bring We Matter to your community. info@wemattercampaign.org

boy-girlfriend-it-gets-betteritgetsbetter-300x183Our model of sharing messages of hope and resiliency was based on the It Gets Better Project, an initiative to share videos of hope and positivity with LGTBQ youth. These messages remind youth that life becomes easier and gets better if they can get through the difficult teenage years.

We thank the It Gets Better Project for their ongoing support as our Organizational Partner, and encourage you to visit their website for more videos addressing community, strength and resiliency in the face of adversity.

International Human Rights Day 2016

human-rights-day-2016-header2

Human Rights Day 2016 “Stand up for someone’s rights today!”

Human Rights Day is observed every year on 10 December. It commemorates the day on which, in 1948, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of christmas-carol-merry-christmas-xmas-christmas-smiley-emoticon-000562-largeHuman Rights. In 1950, the Assembly passed resolution 423 (V), inviting all States and interested organizations to observe 10 December of each year as Human Rights Day.

This year, Human Rights Day calls on everyone to stand up for someone’s rights! Many of us are fearful about the way the world is smilie-and-chuckie-santasheading. Disrespect for basic human rights continues to be wide-spread in all parts of the globe. Extremist movements subject people to horrific violence. Messages of intolerance and hatred prey on our fears. Humane values are under attack.

We must reaffirm our common humanity. Wherever we are, we can make a real difference. In the street, in school, at work, in public transport; in the voting booth, on social media.

The time for this is now. “We the peoples” can take a stand for rights. And together, we can take a stand for more humanity.

It starts with each of us. Step forward and defend the rights of a refugee or migrant, a person with disabilities, an LGBT person, a woman, a child, indigenous peoples, a minority group, or anyone else at risk of discrimination or violence.

“Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places, close to home – so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Unless these rights have meaning there, they have little meaning anywhere. Without concerted citizen action to uphold them close to home, we shall look in vain for progress in the larger world.”

Eleanor Roosevelt
Driving force behind the Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Join us and “Stand up for someone’s rights today.” We want to encourage, support and 2343126_125amplify what you do in your everyday life to defend human rights. Together, let’s take action for greater freedoms, stronger respect and more compassion. Many of us are fearful about the way the world is heading. Messages of intolerance and hatred prey on our fears. But we can change the course by reaffirming our common humanity and taking action to support everyone’s human rights.

Video: It starts with you

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein explains why standing up for someone’s rights helps to provide safety, security and reaffirm humanity in the world.

In focus

Human Rights Day is celebrated by the global human rights community and the whole United Nations family. Activities are planned across the world to commemorate the signature of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1948. Read more.

Madonna Is Billboard’s 2016 Woman of the Year

header2

When the 11th annual Billboard Women In Music event hits New York City this winter, royalty will be present. 

Following a year where she extended her record as the highest-grossing female touring artist of all time, Madonna will receive Billboard’s 2016 Woman of the Year award. 

madonna-4Madonna is one of a miniscule number of super-artists whose influence and career transcend music,” said Janice Min, president and chief creative officer of The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group. “With her creative vision, relentless innovation, and dedication to philanthropic causes, she is an inspiration to hundreds of millions of people around the world, all while shattering every career record out there. She is an important feminist on top of that, a one-of-a-kind artist who’s used her influence to change the conversation around women, sexuality and equal rights.

From her Prince tribute alongside Stevie Wonder at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards to her political Met Gala appearance to her indelible commentary on the 2016 election, Madonna has remained a constant force in pop culture and source of cultural conversation over the past year.

madonna-smilie-living-for-loveHer Rebel Heart Tour, which wrapped in March, solidified her status as one of the biggest touring acts of all time. Madonna sold more than 1 million tickets and walked away with $170 million. That makes her the highest grossing solo touring artist in Billboard Boxscore history (the archives go back to 1990) with a staggering $1.31 billion in total concert grosses.

In addition to being the first female pop star with true control of her career and image, Madonna is the best-selling female recording artist of all time. She’s earned 8 No. 1 albums (and 21 top 10 albums) on the Billboard 200 and 12 No. 1 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. With her 46th No. 1 on the Dance Club Songs chart in 2015, she extended her own record for the most No. 1s on a single Billboard chart. She also holds the record for the most top 10 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with 38.

heart-caseIn addition to her ongoing chart dominance, her philanthropic efforts are effecting real madonna-smiliechange in the world. Madonna’s Raising Malawi organization is currently constructing Malawi’s first pediatric surgery and intensive care unit, which will double the number of life-saving surgeries performed on children each year, provide intensive care after critical surgeries, and train specialized Malawian medical staff. The Mercy James Institute of Pediatric Surgery and Intensive Care facility will open in 2017.

The seven-time Grammy winner will receive the honor at the 11th annual Women in Music event, held Dec. 9 in New York City and airing nationally on Lifetime on Dec.12. The star-studded event is held in conjunction with the publication of Billboard’s Women in Music list, which identifies the 50 most powerful female executives in the industry each year.

GLBT Historical Society “Learning From Our Past, Creating Our Future”

gblt-header2
Terry Beswick the executive director of the GLBT Historical Society

The elections of 2016 have left so many of us disappointed and worried about what’s next, tumblr_n7vgfoxgte1sp6e2vo1_r1_250and while we at the GLBT Historical Society share these concerns, we recognize that we directorhave a special role in creating the change we’d like to see.

Our unique responsibility is to help put our contemporary  challenges into historical context. In this way, we as a community will be better prepared to overcome obstacles, avail ourselves of promising opportunities and, ultimately, build a better future for LGBTQ people and our allies. This process begins with an understanding of our past and of the ways that understanding can inspire a society of greater respect for all.

Over the last year, the Historical Society has made great progress in preserving, protecting and sharing our history:
  • smiley20deliveryWith strong support from our members and donors, we moved our archives and offices to a new, spacious location in the mid-Market neighborhood of San Francisco. We now have over twice as much room for our archives, allowing us to process a backlog of donations and to acquire new collections.
  • freddie-smilieOur volunteer-staffed GLBT History Museum celebrated its five-year anniversary in the Castro, and over the course of 2016, we expanded the calendar of new exhibitions and programming. We’re especially proud of our continuing efforts to ensure the museum better reflects the great diversity of our community.elton-new-smilie8
  • If we meet our year-end fundraising goal, our 2016 budget will surpass the previous year by 50 percent. Some of the sources of this growth: We brought back our fabulous annual gala, raising more than $60,000. And thanks to strong support from the community, our membership increased by 30 percent.

Of course, we have a lot more work to do, both within the LGBTQ community and with the general public. I believe our community is in a unique position to build cultural awareness and understanding among all our families and communities of origin, not only about gender and sexuality, but also about issues of racial, economic and social justice that glbt-historical-societyinevitably affect LGBTQ people.

That’s why the GLBT Historical Society recently launched Vision2020, our four-year campaign to establish a New Museum of LGBTQ History and Culture in San Francisco. We’re working to create a full-fledged educational institution to support dialogue and discovery for locals of all ages and for visitors from around the globe.

We’re aiming to raise $75,000 for our Vision2020 campaign by the end of the year, with the first $30,000 in new donations matched dollar for dollar by three generous donors. We are more than halfway there — and with support from the community, we’ll not only meet the goal, we’ll exceed it. All funds raised will be used to help prepare us to launch a full-fledged capital campaign for the New Museum of LGBTQ History and Culture. Here’s where to make your donation.

As we look forward to exciting plans for 2017, we’re immensely grateful to all those who make our work possible. As always, your ongoing support will be crucial to our success.

Gender Identity and Gender Expression (Canada)

There are a variety of individual experiences of gender and of gender expression. The terms “gender identity” and “gender expression” include a wide range of gender diversity.

🌈 Gender Identity 🌈

smilie-orangeGender identity is each person’s internal and individual experience of gender. It is their sense of being a woman, a man, both, neither, or anywhere along the gender spectrum.

A person’s gender identity may be the same as or different from the gender typically associated with their sex assigned at birth. When a person’s gender identity is different from the gender typically associated with their sex assigned at birth, this is often described as transgender or simply trans.

Gender identity is not the same as a person’s sexual orientation.

🌈 Gender Expression 🌈

Gender expression is the way in which people publicly present their gender. It is the presentation of gender through such aspects as dress, hair, make-up, body language, and voice.
