Leonard Cohen

Pensamentos.me/VEM comigo!

” Eu ouvi dizer que havia um acorde secreto

Que Davi tocava e agradava ao Senhor

Mas você liga muito pra música, liga?

É assim, a quarta, a quinta

A menor cai, a maior ascende

O Rei perplexo compondo Aleluia

Aleluia, Aleluia

Aleluia, Aleluia “

Leonard Cohen. Aleluia ( Hallelujah)

Black Women Writers at Work: A Neglected Book

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

I am so glad I happened to see this book Black Women Writers at WorkBlack Women Writers at Work by Claudia Tate
at the public library.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was moved with both recognition, and with fear, at Audre Lorde’s comment that “it’s scary because we’ve been through that before. It was called the fifties.”

audre_lordeThen I was moved with that stirring to act, upon reading in print what I have known and been told in different words since Dunbar (High School): “My responsibility is to speak the truth… with as much precision and beauty as possible. … We’ve been taught that silence would save us, but it won’t.”
And we must not remain silent while the blood of our sisters/brothers/neighbors/communities/fellow human beings is shed.

Sherley Anne Williams reiterates this responsibility of a writer to write as well as one can and to “say as much of the truth…

Our Choice

normabobb

We have to avoid being put into a cocoon. We are free to choose who we want to be. This universe is based on equality. The sun shines on everyone. Asking to be acknowledged is insane. We have to love ourselves unconditionally and unapologetically and align ourselves with the forces that are for our greater good.

‘The point has been made’: Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern tells protesters to go home | RNZ News

She said the disruption caused by the protest had been “extraordinary” and told those in attendance their point had been made and it was time for them to go home.

“The protesters have had their say, it is time they go home and now obviously the police are taking action to ensure it doesn’t grow and to ensure that the disruption, or where people are behaving illegally, that that is addressed.”

She said the government and a “significant majority” of New Zealanders had been “extremely distressed” by the events in Wellington but noted the “important separation” between the police and government.

“The law is very clear on this, and rightly so: government cannot and should not ever be able to instruct the police as to how they enforce the law or when they enforce the law.”

Ardern said this morning’s police action was intended to prevent the occupation from growing larger and that she had been briefed by Police Commissioner Andrew Coster on what to expect once she arrived at Parliament.

“I think the message that’s being sent here is that the police are forming, essentially a barricade around the edges of the protest.

“Ultimately, all of this would be resolved if simply people went home.”
