Who is todays tomorow person

life is to short

 

 

 

Gentle Readers,

The second part of part 9 of the tomorrow people starts this way:

One year ago schoolgirl Malala Yousafzai was shot in the head by Taliban gunmen - her "crime", to have spoken up for the right of girls to be educated. The world reacted in horror, but after weeks in intensive care Malala survived

She is known for her activism for rights to education and for women, especially in the Swat Valley, where the Taliban had at times banned girls from attending school. In early 2009, at the age of 11–12, Yousafzai wrote a blog under a pseudonym for the BBC detailing her life under Taliban rule, their attempts to take control of the valley, and her views on promoting education for girls. The following summer, a New York Times documentary was filmed about her life as the Pakistani military intervened in the region, culminating in the Second Battle of Swat. Yousafzai rose in prominence, giving interviews in print and on television, and she was nominated for the International Children's Peace Prize by South African activist Desmond Tutu.

On the morning of Tuesday, Oct. 9, 2012, Malala boarded her schoolbus in the northwest Pakistani district of Swat. The gunman had no doubt whom he was looking for. He asked for Malala by name, then pointed a Colt 45 and fired three shots. One bullet hit the left side of Malala's forehead, traveled under her skin the length of her face and then into her shoulder

And as the late great Paul Harvey would say "that’s the rest of the story"

Gentle reader, even as I write this, three are found dead in Maryland. Shot by what we can only imagine to be the personification of the very face of evil. One would think that dissent allows each person to voice their opinion. But in this 21st century it is not allowed not in the East and not in the West any longer. Here in the United States, those in power are slowly restricting the rights of half of its citizenry the distaff side (ever heard of the ‘war on women’?) What about the minimum wage (mostly women, single mothers 64% live in poverty) how about that? (here in America)

So when a young Pakistani girl stands up for the right ob educated halfway around the world. She is standing up for all women worldwide! If you're in trouble, or hurt or need - go to the poor people. They're the only ones that'll help - the only ones. Poverty is the worst form of violence. Once poverty is gone, we'll need to build museums to display its horrors to future generations. They'll wonder why poverty continued so long in human society - how a few people could live in luxury while billions dwelt in misery, deprivation and despair.

So Gentle reader our next "Tomorrow person is a little girl who stood up not only for her right to be educated but for the rights of all women everywhere!

You see tomorrow people are not only educated and astute, they not only see clearly in the present but also see what could be in the future!

What the world sees now is hatred, crime and abuse of not only women but children as well. Can one person make a difference? My answer is yes and many tomorrow people can turn this evil around to what it should be. But it will never happen if those who see that they can do something, don’t step forward. One must count the cost but to do nothing makes your life meaningless.

My hope is that there are enough of you who wish not hate and evil but peace and love will step up and do something.

Peace... till next time

  • Brother Denis, you are so very right. Like manh folks I try to read as much about world events, especially those involving Christians, and the news keeps becoming larger and longer. It sems that most of tomorows people are concerned with ways to get money from the working class, and technology that is geared toward the wealthier portions of society.  In many ways the caste system has never gone away. It has had a name change and a bit of a makeover by the media, but it is still the primary form of societal division. Poverty is as important to this system as water is to living. Two words that used to define the character of a nation, freedom and equality, have become so obscured by greed and corruption that most would not even recognize either today.  Indeed, it is hard to see the flaws in a system when you are blinded by lies and perpetually fed information that is tainted by indifference and tempered by selfishness.

    I don't believe anyone could delve into this hinesight of foresight any better than you my friend. I truly love to read your commentaries and social perspectives.

  • Brother Denis,

    Of all of the different Religions on this Earth, which our G-d had His hand in developing The Truth about one in particular monothistic group of Believers, who were called The Hebrews, and in particular The Jews by name. They did not waiver in proclaiming their reason to believe in the depths of G-d's Love for one another.

    But there IS still this other developed Religion, out of a different Semitic People Group, which is far more speculative concerning how does anyone who is of Faith, able to believe in such a form of debauchary, is beyond me and and my small brain.

     

    Shalom, Lee....

What Each Area of the Site is Meant For: Blogs - This is your personal space. This is where you should post thoughts that are not intended for extensive further discussion. Observations from personal study and events that have occurred in your life belong here. Unless your post ends with questions or makes it apparent that discussion is to follow, it should probably be a blog. As discussed later, blogs are limited to those who hold to historic Christian beliefs. Forums - This is for open discussion relating to the topic posted. Dialogue is encouraged to stay on topic, so if a side conversation begins, open a new discussion. This is where the majority of the activity has taken place so far. Topics should remain general in nature, while in depth discussion on narrow topics should take place in groups. Groups - This is a place to congregate with people who have similar interests and positions in order to have open discussion. The conversation in here is not required to remain on topic, so it is more ready to follow rabbit trails. This is where you should go if you want to gather with a particular kind of theologian. Before initiating a new group, we ask that you consider posting a question in the discussion forum area to see if there is enough interest to justify a separate group. The reason we encourage such action is that, in the event that a group is inactive for 6 months or more, the moderators of Scriptural Studies reserve the right to close down and delete the group due to inactivity. Events - This is available to anyone that wants to post an event that you think the members of Scriptural Studies may be interested in. Contact Denis, Rabbi Del, Rifkah, or Marti for more details on advertising.
