WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER


 

 

 

 

 

No one is immune to catastrophe… it could happen at any time and even the most seemingly settled, secure life can be thrown to wind or flames or economic hardship…
It is heartwarming to see the solidarity and courage of people who step forward to help. But solidarity should not always be only where help is available. And it should not wait for catastrophe to strike.

Because for millions of people all over the world, near and far… every day is a disaster.

Compassion, brotherhood… these should be everyday things, everywhere…
We are all in this together… let’s keep it that way.

IF IT WERE YOUR CHILD……


If it were your child you’d want everything possible for him or her to grow, to learn, to achieve, to find his or her way in the world, and to love.

If it were your grandparent, you’d want to see him or her happy, safe and cared for so that old age will be a gentle joy, and not a hardship.

So look, TAKE A GOOD LOOK, around you, AROUND you, in your hometown, in your neighborhhood… because there are people… kids, elders, men and women struggling, NO! not just struggling – FIGHTING-  to give their families a decent life, to overcome the suffering of old age in a dignified manner, to simply STAY ALIVE and get the basic needs they must have to ensure themselves and their families a life, a LIFE like the one we who are more fortunate have, without thinking about it… no matter how easy or hard it may seem for US.

BE AWARE that RIGHT IN YOUR OWN BACKYARD, RIGHT THIS MINUTE, there are families, including single mothers, the disabled, the ill… who don’t know how they will keep their children warm and fed until the end of winter.

So… yeah, maybe winter last year was mild, maybe the big storms didn’t come, maybe the need for heating fuel was less last year… OR SO YOU MAY THINK. WE KNOW DIFFERENTLY.  AND SINCE LAST WINTER THERE HAVE BEEN FIRES, AND STORMS, AND THE ROT AND THE MOLD HAVE GROWN THICKER IN THOSE FRAGILE SHELTERS AND THE PUBLIC FUNDS SO VERY MUCH THINNER…..

Maybe that moldy, rotting, old clapboard house they live in will hold together for a little while longer, never mind if the mold causes severe respiratory problems that can lead to DEATH; never mind if the insulation is so poor that illness and the risk of DEATH from exposure are constant.

Maybe that child will be bright enough to make it through school without help, maybe something will provide the scolarship money that can send him or her to university so he or she can get the knowledge that can lead to success and come home to help his or her People…

Maybe the patched clothes and the cheap food will be enough for a while longer… maybe. Maybe the rags will burn in the stove and not catch fire, until the propane can be pâid for…. maybe!!!

And it never stops. Never. Ever. Global economy HAS MADE A SOCIAL CLASS OUT OF STARK POVERTY; the “have nots” now… HAVE NOTHING.

Maybe there will be miracles… 

But the best miracles are the ones we create ourselves. Prayers and good wishes ease the soul of the ones who receive them, but they do not a home or a community center or a medical clinic build OR A STOVE FUEL. Compassion eases the heart, but does not clothe or feed or school a child or keep an elder warm and give them the medical treatment they need. 

Maybe “someone” will step up to the plate and give, even a little, even a piece of clothing, a dollar here or there… and yes this all adds up… 

Please join us and be that “SOMEONE” with us. Please, won’t you hold out a helping hand with us so that the poor may have their basic needs met, and be better able to take their lives into their own hands? Any contribution, no matter how small, is welcome – even if it is just passing the word to others.

If it were your child… your grandmother… your brother… your sister… 

Thank you.

EVERY ACORN HAS THE POTENTIAL TO START A FOREST


by Michelle W Bernhard on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at 12:51 am ·

A classroom full of students, background noise in whispers; little attention paid to what the speaker is saying about the subject for tonight: nursing careers and humanitarian organizations.

The projected film leaves the students so obviously bored. As the speaker closes the video projector, he asks:

“Have any of you considered doing volunteer work?”

The students sit, silently, like a row of fish on a market stall. Nobody answers the speaker. The clock on the wall gets louder and louder.

The speaker pauses for thought, then reopens the video projector, connects to the Internet, and, going to YouTube, opens up some videos of a much less conventional, but harder, reality.

WAR ZONE. DISASTER AREA. STARVATION. INNER CITY HOMELESSNESS. RESERVATION POVERTY. ORPHANS, ELDERLY, WHOLE FAMILIES IN DESPAIR. ALL CONTINENTS, ALL CULTURES, ALL RACES AND CREDOS.

The students’ faces change. One of the young women starts to cry. A young man scoffs: “Nah this is exaggerated!”

The speaker replies: “No. This is the reality of life. There are people like this all over the world, and humanitarian organizations are doing their best to come to their aid. But of course, I can’t convince you if you don’t want to be convinced. That is up to you.”

The bell rings and the students hurry out of the classroom. It’s time to go home, they have things to do that only young people of their age know. The speaker gathers up his papers, puts the projector away into the cabinet, and locks the door. He thinks how difficult it is today to get young people to see beyond their own worlds and into the great world outside, with its daily share of suffering reality.

As he turns to pick up his briefcase, he sees the girl who had burst into tears, and smiles at her.

“Thank you for coming,” she says. “I’m sorry. I didn’t know.”

“That’s OK. Thank you for staying to say that.”

“Can I have some documents?”

“Yeah, sure.”  The speaker takes out some literature and hands it to her.

“Thanks,” she says.

“Any time. Here’s my card if you have any questions.”

The girl smiles and leaves. The speaker stands thinking, hoping that maybe… maybe… one more heart was touched; then switches off the lights and closes the door quietly as he goes out.

EVERY ACORN HAS THE POTENTIAL TO START A FOREST…

EVERY INDIVIDUAL MOTIVATION HAS THE POTENTIAL TO CHANGE A LIFE.

ARE YOU READY TO ADD YOURS?

TRUTH HURTS …


FOR THOSE WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT POVERTY, IT IS ONLY POSSIBLE TO JUST IMAGINE, BUT NEVER WILL IT BE UNDERSTOOD UNLESS WE TAKE YOU TO THAT POINT & SHOW YOU FIRST HAND. 

SO TAKE A LOOK AT THESE VIDEOS – WE THANK THE ONES WHO TOOK THE TIME TO MAKE THEM – AND CONSIDER THAT NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE IN THE WORLD, THERE WILL BE CHILDREN AND FAMILIES IN NEED OF HELP. IT DOES NOT MATTER HOW BAD IT LOOKS TO YOU OR TO ME, FOR THEM IT IS SIMPLY TRAGIC. YES, OF COURSE, YOU SEE PICTURES LIKE THESE ALL THE TIME IN THE NEWS, ON THE INTERNET. THEY ARE NOT “MADE UP”. THEY ARE FROM REAL LIFE SITUATIONS. THEY HAVE NOT ALWAYS BEEN TAKEN THOUSANDS OF MILES FROM WHERE YOU MAY LIVE. AND THESE ARE NOT THE ONLY CASES. SO VERY MUCH POVERTY IS HUSHED, UNSHOWN, UNMENTIONED, SWEPT UNDER THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA RUGS…  

POVERTY IS NOT NICE, OR GLAMOUROUS, OR GOSSIP-PROVOKING, OR UPLIFTING. POVERTY DOES NOT MAKE PRIME TIME OR FRONT PAGE. 

POVERTY IS UGLY.  POVERTY KILLS. POOR FOOD, POOR MEDICAL CARE, VIOLENCE, SUICIDE, SUBSTANCE ABUSE AND JUST PLAIN DESPAIR SHORTEN THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THE POOR IN A DRAMATIC MANNER. SO OFTEN THE CHILDREN DIE FIRST AND THEN THE ELDERLY. WHO HEARS THEM? WHO SEES THEM?

DO YOU?

POVERTY IS HELL. 

Yes, there are many, many organisations working and fighting to alleviate suffering and poverty. But don’t let that make you blasé about it. All it takes is a little support… be it simply talking about it, finding organisations that get down on the ground in the dirt and help, spreading the word, donating if you can…

But if you think these organisations are sufficient to deal with the crushing burden of poverty, and they don’t need your help… that’s oK.  

It’s your mirror after all…

FREDDY WILL BE ABLE TO SEE!


by Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp (a 501c Non-Profit Organization) on Monday, May 7, 2012 at 1:36pm ·

Freddy is the son of Wanbli Gleska Tokahe and his wife Maria. He and his family are Lakota, and live on the Rosebud Sioux reservation in South Dakota. Freddy was born prematurely and lost his sight to retinopathy at the age of four months. After Freddy’s family had spent more than eight years searching for an eye specialist to give Freddy a fair eye examination without prejudice to the results and opinions made after Freddy became blind, FREDDY & LITTLE MASSI CALLING CORP was able to find one of the leading eye specialists in New York through the diligent efforts of David Anthony together with his associate Joe Corace. Funds were raised effortlessly by the foundation in spite of the almost abrupt notice of this appointment , in order to finance the return trip for Freddy and family from the Rosebud reservation. A big part of the fundraising came from a raffle of one of our brother Richard Flittie’s fine hand drums – again, many thanks, Richard! All accommodations etc. were provided courtesy David Anthony. Many thanks to the guys at Goodyear for the great job on servicing Wanbli’s truck!
On Wednesday April 25th 2012 , after Freddy’s detailed eye examination, the doctor gave the happiest possible news to Freddy’s dad Wanbli Gleska Tokahe and mom Maria. Freddy will be able to regain his sight perfectly through a new retinal transplant surgery and has been placed on a priority waiting list for doing this. The doctor also said that since Freddy’s optical nerves etc. were still functional, he made a perfect candidate for such a surgery!
The doctor did this appointment free as a courtesy to David and Joe!
All prayers for Freddy from around the world are deeply appreciated and FOR ALL THOSE WHO WERE ABLE TO ASSIST FINANCIALLY IN MAKING THEIR RETURN JOURNEY POSSIBLE, WE ARE HONORED AND WE ARE FOREVER GRATEFUL FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND CARING AND FOR STANDING WITH US WITH CONFIDENCE  TO MAKE THIS A SUCCESS.
YOU ARE TRUE WARRIORS!
Special thanks also to our brother Tony Moonhawk Langhorn for taking the time to accompany Freddy and his family and David during the appointment and all of the other events through which he stands with David.
Thank you once more on behalf of everyone here at Freddy & Little Massi Calling Corp and especially Freddy !
PLEASE SEE OUR SPECIAL PHOTO ALBUM HERE  http://wp.me/P2j2il-bP  FOR MORE PHOTOS… 🙂
