Strong background checks needed for all people working with children in state care, says Jamaicans for Justice

Petchary's Blog

There has long been a public perception that Jamaica’s most vulnerable children are not being given the care and protection they need. In particular, we seem to be tolerating – or pretending we don’t know – about the predatory habits of older men towards our young girls. It is depressing, and it has been going on for decades. These men prey on young girls, sometimes bearing gifts and benefits (as in this latest sensational case) and sometimes under the guise of religion. There are lurid details from the Office of the Children’s Advocate’s report (which has been sentto the police) on the latest, deeply disturbing revelations – about“Uncle Carl,”an American whose educational license was suspended in his own country in 2016, and who ended up here. The allegations are shocking, and so is the reported inaction by the Child Protection and Family Service Agency (CPFSA).

Biden administration renews COVID-19 public health emergency

The Biden administration on Wednesday again renewed the COVID-19 public health emergency, a provision that gives the administration authorities to respond to the pandemic as cases are again on the rise.

U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra renewed the declaration on its expiration date — an expected step because officials have said they will provide 60 days’ notice if they do not plan to renew the emergency, and had not done so.

Y aquí sigo, en medio del mundo, entre mis mañanas y mis noches, tratando de vivir cada instante en armonía, con equilibrio e intensamente. Sé que si uno permanece atorado en la orilla de la corriente, entre el agua que se encharca y se vuelve pútrida y hedionda, pierde la grandiosa oportunidad de disfrutar, con sus claroscuros, la travesía por el mundo. Y aquí sigo, lejos de envidias, desamores, enojos, maldades, odios, rencores y tristezas, alumbrado por la luz de mi alma. Y aquí sigo, en la temporalidad, rumbo al infinito. Y aquí sigo, en el camino, interesado en explorar la vida, en recibirla como el maravilloso regalo y milagro que es. Y aquí sigo, hasta en las madrugadas y las tardes, con mis sueños y mis realidades, entretenido en el inacabable ensayo de la vida. Y aquí sigo…

Toda mulher que passa por situação de violência ela fica muito fragilizada. A saúde de fato, fica comprometida, tanto no que tange a parte mental, quanto emocional. O grande desafio para essa mulher conseguir mudar tal realidade, será ” desconstruir as inverdades ” que prevaleceram durante todo período em que ela se submeteu aos abusos e represou isso. Da mesma forma, será necessário, além de ter passado por esse estágio de negação, se reconstruir novamente. Claro, agora ” alinhado os seus pensamento ” ao novo, ou seja, a realidade cotidiana para ter condições de prosseguir.
