Every single individual in this country must face the truth in the hypocrisy in this nation. We must all come out of denial about the fact that we were miseducated, and consequently do not understand causes and effects as it relates to the racism, systemic injustice and disenfranchisement of black people (Afrikan ancestry) from 1515 to 2018.
Slave Patrols, Peonage Laws, Black Codes and Jim Crow, Segregation, Re-lining the prevention of home loans to build wealth, NO GI Bills for Black service men, the War on Rugs and Mass Incarceration, and the list goes on and on. The reality is that over 98% of of people of Afrikan ancestry descended from black people who were here in this nation by force (making us highly vested), building this country's wealth long before the majority of European Americans crossed the ocean to Ellis Island (by choice). We must face the reality that white America has been socialized to internalize a sense of superiority, while Black Americans have been internalized to feel a sense of inferiority. We must face this lie overcome the myth of "race". If we each act out of this understanding, then we can begin to live closer to the "ideals" of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness." Go and seek out the untold history!

The #humanity destroyed the biosphere. Interesting book is “Harvesting the Biosphere”, Vaclav Smil offers an interdisciplinary and quantitative account of human claims on the biosphere’s stores of living matter, from prehistory to the present day. Smil examines all harvests — from prehistoric man’s hunting of megafauna to modern crop production — and all uses of harvested biomass, including energy, food, and raw materials. Without harvesting of the biomass, Smil points out, there would be no story of human evolution and advancing civilization; but at the same time, the increasing extent and intensity of present-day biomass harvests are changing the very foundations of civilization’s well-being.
In his detailed and comprehensive account, Smil presents the best possible quantifications of past and current global losses in order to assess the evolution and extent of biomass harvests. Drawing on the latest work in disciplines ranging from anthropology to environmental science, Smil offers a valuable long-term, planet-wide perspective on human-caused environmental change.

We were taught the "ideals" of this nation- yes... About the so-called right to "life, liberty and the persist of happiness". But we were not give the complete history, written by white men who at that very moment were subjugating human beings to the level of animals and property. That hypocrisy, that inhumanity, that evil was written into the Constitution, and is upheld to this VERY DAY. The INTENTION was to maintain an underclass of black people through laws that pervade every systemic this nation. Our history books did not teach us the 450-year old truth about chattel slavery building a world economy. They did not teach us the about the Slave Patrols (today's Order of Police) that were formed to catch and return enslaved black people who fled the plantation. They did not teach us about an emancipation of over a million black people into abject poverty, with zero dollars and forced illiteracy. Then came Peonage Laws, Black Codes and Jim Crow, Segregation, Re-lining the prevention of home loans to build wealth, NO GI Bills for Black service men, the War on Rugs and Mass Incarceration, and the list goes on and on. The reality is that over 98% of of people of Afrikan ancestry descended from black people who were here in this nation by force (making us highly vested), building this country's wealth long before the majority of European Americans crossed the ocean to Ellis Island (by choice). We must face the reality that white America has been socialized to internalize a sense of superiority, while Black Americans have been internalized to feel a sense of inferiority. We must face this lie overcome the myth of "race". If we each act out of this understanding, then we can begin to live closer to the "ideals" of this nation, but we ALL must EDUCATE ourselves and encourage everyone to overcome the systemic and historic ignorance of which we reside.

BANTUAN MAKANAN UNTUK BALITA DI BUNKER-BUNKER GHOUTA TIMUR, SURIAH
Pertempuran di Ghouta Timur, Suriah kembali terjadi pada Ahad dini hari (11/03). Observatorium Suriah untuk Hak Asasi Manusia (SOHR) menyebutkan pertempuran yang telah memasuki hari ke-21 itu telah menelan 1.099 korban jiwa. Dari 1.099 korban tewas tersebut termasuk di antaranya 227 anak dan balita, serta 154 perempuan. Sedangkan korban terluka, sedikitnya 4.378 orang.
Kini kondisi di Ghouta Timur semakin parah bagi warga sipil. Rumah sebagai tempat berlindung sudah hancur, sehingga mereka terpaksa tinggal di bunker-bunker darurat dengan kondisi yang memprihatinkan. Karena kondisi yang berbahaya, warga yang mengungsi pun mengalami kekurangan pangan, apalagi akses bantuan yang masuk dibatasi oleh otoritas setempat.
“Yang paling mengkhawatirkan adalah diantara warga yang mengungsi di bunker-bunker itu terdapat puluhan ribu balita yang juga mengalami kekurangan asupan gizi,” ujar Andri Murdianto, Crisis Center Rumah Zakat. “Oleh sebab itu, hari Senin kemarin (12/03), kami mendistribusikan bantuan makanan bernutrisi untuk balita yang mengungsi di bunker, setelah sebelumnya kami mendistribusikan bantuan pangan serta roti untuk warga Ghouta Timur,” jelas Andri.
Sahabat, mari terus berbagi untuk warga Suriah. Kepedulian kita sangat berarti bagi mereka.

There is virtue in stability. It’s the idea that I’m not going to slink away, I’m not going to be afraid, I’m not going to hide, and I’m not going to procrastinate. I’m going to face life head on. Why? Because I have the power within me to do so. Within me is the person of Jesus Christ, and Jesus does not take a knee to cancer, to death, to illness, to suffering, to challenges of any kind. Christ within me endures and Christ within you endures.
Life is moving at a million miles an hour. As everything is changing, everything is fluctuating, there is nothing more needed than dependable, stable people that are true, that are faithful, that are loyal, that you can count on - and that’s you. In our crazy world, there is nothing more refreshing and reassuring than being or knowing a strong and stable individual.
You are a stable person, you are a rock, you are someone that people look to for encouragement in the storms of life. You are a lighthouse. You are a shelter to people who are hurting. That is what God has given you. And that is what God is like. When we suffer and when we’re going through trials, we run to him and he gives us shelter.
Prayer: Dear Lord, you shelter me in times of trouble. May I be one to help others as you help me in their times of need. Amen.

"To One In Paradise"
Thou wast all that to me, love,
For which my soul did pine-
A green isle in the sea, love,
A fountain and a shrine,
All wreathed with fairy fruits and flowers,
And all the flowers were mine.
Ah, dream too bright to last!
Ah, starry Hope! that didst arise
But to be overcast!
A voice from out the Future cries, "On! on!"- but o'er the Past (Dim gulf!) my spirit hovering lies
Mute, motionless, aghast!
For, alas! alas! me
The light of Life is o'er! "No more- no more- no more-" (Such language holds the solemn sea
To the sands upon the shore)
Shall bloom the thunder-blasted tree
Or the stricken eagle soar!
And all my days are trances,
And all my nightly dreams
Are where thy grey eye glances,
And where thy footstep gleams-
In what ethereal dances,
By what eternal streams.
