I heard about an Iranian prisoner who was forced to dress like a Kurdish woman as an insult. Kurdish women protested and the next thing that happened was a spontaneous Facebook protest of many men dressing as Kurdish women in support of the women and the prisoner. Click here to read about it.
Finally today I see a Reddit post about a Sikh woman whose image was posted as a joke and her brilliant response to the insult. Plus the apology of the one who posted the insult. See it here:
If you like to sing please come and join us March 27th at Charlotte’s Place to sing a new version of our National Anthem.
This anthem is not about “bombs bursting in air” but about “people free with their prayer”. It’s time to shift the consciousness from war to harmony among all of us.
Take time to learn the new words of the song before March 27th.
Oh, say can you see by this day’s brilliant light
How so joyf’lly we’ve made out of many, one dreaming?
Take broad stripes and bright stars and a unified sight
O’er the country we watch all our new neighbors beaming.
And the freedom that’s here, people free with their prayer,
Give proof every year that E Pluribus we share.
Oh, say does that Star-Spangled Banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and diverse home we’ve made.
Join us March 27th from 10:00AM to 12 Noon at Charlotte’s Place, 109 Greenwich Street above Rector Street. Please RSVP firstname.lastname@example.org
