LGBT Pride Month

by Vanessa Daniela

Earth will be a better place once we treat everyone with respect. We support the LGBT community and stand against any kind of discrimination.

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month (LGBT Pride Month) is currently celebrated in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots in Manhattan. The riots were the mark of the Gay Liberation Movement in the United States.

Nowadays, the celebrations attract millions of people from different ages around the World. The goal of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that this community have had in history worldwide.

However, according to the FBI, the LGBT people are the most likely targets of hate crimes in America.  L.G.B.T. people are twice as likely to be targeted as African-Americans. It is time to change this scenario. We are all humans, and we all deserve respect. Don’t let your faith and/or culture violate the most sacred words: respect, peace, and love.

II Poetry Contest: March 8th – International Women’s Day

by D. Avery

Some women
Some women had their last treatment today
Some their first
Some were untreated.

Some had heart attacks, some died
Some lived.
Some women felt dead inside
Others felt vibrant and alive.

Baby girls were born today
borne of women become mothers
While others became aunts, mentors, friends.
Today, and yesterday, and tomorrow.
Some will feel joy, some will feel sorrow.

Some women were betrayed today
Some endured violence and pain
Fell down, got pushed around
Got up, tried again.

Women endured today.
Some were supported, some were supportive
Some felt hate, some were hated.
Some gave love, some were loved.

Around the world, women endure
Some fall ill, some rise cured
Some are able to feel the hope and the good
Of a worldwide sisterhood.

Happy Mother’s Day

 

Happy-Mothers-Day-Flowers-Greeting-CardCommercial, symbolic or meaningful, Mother’s Day is a typical day for a lot of mothers.   We congratulate those mothers that love your child and try very hard to protect and educate them. PS. Not every mother is loving and caring.

Personal note: Mom, I want to thank you for always being there for me. You went thru very difficult times, but you always have been caring and loving. Have worked very hard to ensure I would end up well. You deserve serenity, peace, and love for the rest of your life. Love you forever.

II Poetry Contest: Mother of the Bride

by ggspalter

To answer your question why my mother wasn’t at my wedding…

She has been kidnapped, and I don’t know where she is.

She has been kidnapped by conspiracies.

They have taken her and are holding her ransom until homeland security comes and arrests me because I have stolen her food, forks, pillows, plants, and wind chimes.

I don’t know.

She has been kidnapped by paranoia. It keeps her awake for days so no one will kill her dog or give her shots that make her woozy so they can take her T.V. She sleeps in her car so none of us or those voices will track her down. 

I don’t know where.

She is gone.

I don’t know 

Where she is.

So, To answer your question why my mom wasn’t at my wedding:

She has been kidnapped. 

I don’t know where she is. 

I don’t know 

if or when 

she will ever 

be returned.
