Grow through with what you go through

Life is to live and move forward whatever we go through or wherever it plants us, isn’t it?? We should not filter and await only for the good and happy moments. Ups and downs in life won’t come up as we plan, we should always be positive and prepared to face any situation that comes in our way and become a life’s warrior. If we still don’t find the right way, just have to make the one by clearing all the obstacles and make the life smooth but never rough out of the tough situations.

God is what the truth and right path we should always trust and walk along, with prayers.

“Nature is our lifeline”: A young indigenous Surinamese woman speaks during Caribbean Tree Planting Week

Petchary's Blog

Caribbean Tree Planting Week (July 5 – 11, 2021) was diverse, vibrant, packed with valuable information, and full of youthful energy. Two sessions per day for a week, it covered a great range of topics – centred on nature-based solutions and climate action in the form of tree planting.

One of the participants on the first day was Shylina Lingaard, a young woman who feels passionately about threats to her own culture in Suriname and to the forests that her people depend on.

Another problem is that indigenous knowledge and way of life is “fading – slowly but certainly” – especially among the youth, many of whom do not speak their native language. “Development” is happening – not always good development, said Shylina. She feels that indigenous people are “slowly disconnecting” from their culture. And a critical part of that culture is the connection with Nature.

The connection of Indigenous…

Several states report spikes in COVID-19 cases | CIDRAP

Young adults remain vaccine-hesitant New poll research from the University of California-San Francisco (UCSF) shows that one in four unvaccinated people aged 18 to 25 said that they “probably will not” or “definitely will not” get the COVID-19 vaccination. The results, from the March 2021 Household Pulse Survey, included 5,082 respondents. Eighty-three percent reported that they had not been vaccinated, 10% said they definitely will not get the vaccine, and 14% said they probably will not. The results are published in the Journal of Adolescent Health today. Young adults have been one of the hardest groups to vaccinate in the United States, despite many outreach attempts by the Biden administration. Without this group, herd immunity will likely evade the country. Though young adults and adolescents rarely die or get seriously ill from COVID-19, they account for roughly 20% of all new cases. And growing evidence suggests this age group can get “long-COVID,” or persistent symptoms that follow an initial mild infection. “Young adults who have had COVID, regardless of symptoms, may be vulnerable to long-term complications and debilitating symptoms that may include respiratory diffic

Estamos rotos. Pertenecemos a la generación perdida. Hace años, durante postrimerías del siglo XX, escribí, una y otra vez, sobre mi percepción de un mundo fragmentado, antítesis del bien, dedicado más a satisfacer apetitos, caprichos y vanidades que a aliviar dolores y necesidades. Más que construir, la destrucción es una tendencia en las sociedades. El mundo agoniza. Naufragamos en una vorágine de personas que han perdido el sentido de la vida y que creen y piensan que la inmediatez, lo baladí, la estulticia y lo pasajero justificarán sus presencias nocivas, inserevibles y tóxicas. Muchos hombres y mujeres, en mayúsculas y en minúsculas, disponen de energía, dinero y tiempo para actuar cual marionetas cómicas y aberrantes que causan lástima. Hoy, somos capaces de pagar cantidades millonarias por el gusto y el placer de volar en lo que llamamos espacio y…

Opinion | Banning Abortion Doesn’t Protect Women’s Health – The New York Times

if concern for women’s health were truly driving this legislation, it would not be targeting abortion. A person is 14 times more likely to die by carrying a pregnancy to term than by legally induced abortion.

Black women bear the brunt of reproductive politicking in the United States. Nationally, they are over three times as likely to die because of pregnancy and labor complications as white women. That figure multiplies in states hostile to abortion rights. The 2019 Health of Women and Children Report ranked Mississippi 50th among the states overall in promoting the health of women, infants and children. Using abortion surveillance data compiled nationally, it quickly becomes clear that it is far more dangerous for Black women to give birth in Mississippi than it is for them to terminate a pregnancy.

US COVID-19 cases rising again, doubling over three weeks (Me: No going back to old normal – vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate or watch more needless deaths of friends, relatives, spouses, kids!)

Confirmed infections climbed to an average of about 23,600 a day on Monday, up from 11,300 on June 23, according to Johns Hopkins University data. And all but two states — Maine and South Dakota — reported that case numbers have gone up over the past two weeks.

“It is certainly no coincidence that we are looking at exactly the time that we would expect cases to be occurring after the July Fourth weekend,” said Dr. Bill Powderly, co-director of the infectious-disease division at Washington University’s School of Medicine in St. Louis.
