This film was inspired by the facebook group “Celebrities for Palestine.” These well-known performers in the world of entertainment are to be congratulated for their courage in supporting this cause. At the same time, there are many others, not so famous to the general public, working to right the wrongs inflicted upon the people of Palestine, such as Ken O’Keefe, Gilad Azmon, Dr. Jay R. Crook, Tim King, Anna O’Leary, Harry Fear, Dr. Ashraf Ezzat, Dr. Ismail Salami,, Joe Clifford, Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh, Lisa Spaulding, Wen Clay, Nahida Izzat, the martyred Vittorio Arrigoni and Rachel Corrie, et al.
Here in the West, we don’t know anything about death and passing, except how to fear it. But the best moments for me have come at deathbeds and funerals, simply because the totality is suddenly there, as well as a deep and very sweet cherishing of every breath we the living can still draw.

(NAINAMO) Nobody can think globally, any more than one can seriously imagine one’s own death. And so when Fukushima exploded four years ago and as our skies and oceans became laced with toxicity, none of it seemed as real as the trivialities of my life.
Basically, I tried not to think about what lay across the waters. And so even now, as we are being slowly radiated to death in what has become an obvious Extinction Level Event, our planetary fate remains abstract to ourselves: more important than the trivialities, of course, but not more real. And being human, I guess I’m not unusual in that way.
Jade Helm 15 has generated widespread internet and alternative media concerns of U.S. troops conducting an unconventional warfare exercise in towns, some in civilian clothing and armed, in the Southwest and maybe across the U.S.

(SALEM) Dismissed as a hoax by the Army, the fears of ordinary patriotic Americans have not been dampened by the Army’s public relations presentations.
Americans support our troops but the use of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command and service members from the military’s four branches to conduct an unconventional warfare exercise over 8-weeks across multiple states for the purpose of realistic training troops for deployment in foreign environments makes no sense unless the plan is to use these troops for real within the sovereign fifty United States.
I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people —Maya Angelou
Angelou’s passion for equality, tolerance and peace naturally placed her on the same path as the Palestinian people’s quest for freedom. In the video below, recorded in 2006, she reads out an email from American peace activist Rachel Corrie in which Corrie shares her thoughts on the struggle for justice.

Freedom of speech in this country is a wonderful gift that thousands of Americans have died to preserve. Having this right should also include respect for the faith of others. The event in Garland wasn’t respectful. This respect needs to permeate our country throughout all public events, demonstrations and religious gatherings.

(NEWBURGH, Indiana) The Mohammed cartoon event recently held in Garland, Texas was a demonstration of free speech. People gathered to showcase their cartoons of Islam’s Mohammed. Cartoons of Mohammed are commonly known to incite people of the Islam religion. I don’t know of any Christians who like cartoons of Jesus if they depict Jesus in an irreverent way. I do not embrace anything about Islam. I do embrace their United States freedom to peacefully practice their religion. I am abhorred by militant Islam religion.
Hear ye, hear ye, the incredible and formidable Jayalalithaa, the relentless defender of Eelam rights is back in the saddle. She will be sworn in again on Sunday May 17 2015 as Chief Minister of Tamilnadu.
By Usha S Sri-Skanda-Rajah Colombo Telegraph
(COLOMBO) We are on course Ladies and Gentlemen, the “Lady’ is back “victorious” and “stronger” than ever.
I wrote about, “Jayalalithaa’s Incredible Tenacity“, in an article in the Colombo Telegraph and many relished the thought of me eating humble pie when she was convicted of, what the charge described as amassing “disproportionate assets.”
And later, I didn’t call her “The Formidable Jayalalithaa – Unrivalled Leader Of The Tamils“, for nothing!
Richard III was King of England, and there he had the advantage over me. But he was a hunchback, and there I have the advantage over him.

(DAYTONA BEACH) In his best-seller, “David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits and the Art of Battling Giants,” Malcolm Gladwell covers the subject – and the frequent success – of ordinary people who tilt at extraordinary opponents or forces. In other words, instances where a disadvantage become an advantage. Gladwell’s point is that it happens quite frequently and we don’t realize it. You want to argue? Gladwell’s day job is as a staff writer for the New Yorker, which gives him a distinct advantage right there.
Normally a second miracle is required for sainthood; Pope Francis bypassed this requirement by simply declaring Serra’s life work the second miracle.

(SAN FRANCISCO) The Vatican’s saint-making office — the Congregation for the Causes of Saints — has officially approved the Reverend Junipero Serra, the controversial 18th-century missionary, for sainthood. Pope Francis will canonize him during his upcoming visit to the United States.
In essence, to reduce violence and to increase peace, we must address the direct, cultural and structural elements, with cultural aspects possibly the most crucial. And if we fail to address all three, the strategy is incomplete.

(TASMANIA) If you are interested in learning more about the meaning of, and the relationships among, direct, structural and cultural violence and how one peace studies scholar suggests we use the integrative power of nonviolence to address violence constructively, then I suggest you read the new book by historian, playwright and novelist Professor Timothy Braatz called ‘Peace Lessons’. http://www.amazon.com/Peace-Lessons-Timothy-Braatz/dp/0692303758/ref=sr_1_28?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1429793285&sr=1-28&keywords=Peace+lessons
