Peace and Refugees Around the World
12/18/2013 Refugees are people who are forced to leave their home country due to war and violence, seeking peace in a foreign country. The Christmas season is associated with the coming of Jesus to bring peace to the earth. One of the ways that peace is made today is by welcoming refugees into a new, safe community.

Responsively Yours: The Double Bind by Harriett Jane Olson
10/29/2013 The Video Music Awards show is not usually on my radar, and this year was no exception even with it in Brooklyn’s new Barclay’s Center—at least it wasn’t before my Facebook and Twitter feeds blew up with negative comments about one artist’s performance. Criticism of the female performer was fast and vicious. Perhaps it was deserved; I don’t know, I still haven’t watched the video. However, after several days of commentary, I realized a male entertainer was also involved in the performance.
Hope, One Head of Lettuce at a Time by Pamela Sparr
10/29/2013 This is a story about hope. Not the feel-good theoretical, wishful thinking kind of hope but the tangible kind that comes when you have a solid paycheck for the first time, when the jail time you’ve done doesn’t block you from improving your life, when you can begin to see a positive future for yourself. It’s a real kind of hope for neighborhoods that have known decades of despair, crime, racism and entrenched poverty. It’s the kind of hope for our cities and our country that offers a recipe for how we can grow a more economically and environmentally sustainable and just society together.
Cordialmente Suya: Dilema Doble by /por Harriett Jane Olson
10/24/2013 El programa televisivo de los Premios de Videos Musicales no suele estar en mi radar de intereses y este año no fue la excepción, ni siquiera por que se celebró en el nuevo Centro Barclay en Brooklyn --por lo menos no lo fue hasta que mi Facebook y Twitter explotó con comentarios negativos acerca de la actuación de una de las artistas. La crítica de la intérprete femenina fue rápida y viciosa. Quizás se lo merecía, no lo sé, ya que todavía no he visto el video. Sin embargo, después de varios días de comentarios, me di cuenta que un artista masculino también había participado en la actuación.
