Arrival of Spring 2019 - Continuity of the People Toward Purpose and Fulfillment

The Spring Equinox 2019 arrives in the Northern Hemisphere just before 6:00 DST, this evening, and with its arrival comes a time of flora renewal, fauna procreation, expectant warmer temperatures, the associated lush greenery and the ritual and reality of shedding winter's bulky gear for closer bodily shaped outfits in celebration of the period of rejuvenation.

Spring also beckons and affirms the continuity of the human species to find purpose and fulfillment hear on Planet Earth. Therefore, the expected warmer temperatures and flower blooms of the season could intensify the propensity of the people within their existing queries, wants, desires, struggles and intents.

The Far Right: more Bark than Bite - an Intent to Intimidate

Ever since last Friday's terror attack by a far right converter upon innocent Muslim worshipers at prayers, at two mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand, social and political pundits have brought to the fore discussions about the prevalence and danger posed to the general public from right wingers. 

Based upon the continuing discussions about the far right from Europe to Australia, to the United States (US), to New Zealand and elsewhere in the wake of last week's massacre of 50 innocents in New Zealand, the far right is actually fulfilling its goal of intimidation of the general public as a means of forcing people into accepting the fallible and divisive antics of their populist leaders.

To Restrain the Cult of Violence

Any held assumption that violence is an inevitable facet of human relations should be summarily rejected. While being overly possible and present, violence could never be accepted as an inevitable feature of the human experience. Therefore, it should become abundantly clear and thus necessary to restrain the cult of violence at every possible opportunity.

Massacres, mass killings and other grievous forms of the execution of stark violence should not be allowed to become commonplace to a point where average people shrug off major incidents as part of any new normal.

The Reciprocal of Right Wing Violence - a Factor not to be Awaken: for Peace Sake

The white nationalist/supremacist who unleashed a torrent of deadly violence upon peaceful Muslim prayers last Friday, in Christ Church, New Zealand, allegedly wanted to unleash fear upon nonwhites. His intent under no circumstances would ever be realized.

Yet, that the Australian terrorist, who killed 50 innocents and injured dozens more in his two-Mosques attack last Friday, claimed the hope of causing fear among nonwhites as one of the intents of his despicable act, therefore represents a further misgiving and stark failure of right wingers and white nationalists in assuming that today's people are of yesteryear's ethos.

The Christchurch Massacre - a Fruition of Right Wing Rhetoric and a Reality of Hate

The sown deadly seed of hate that has been planted by hate mongers and by those seeking to divide the world's people, came to a violent fruition yesterday, in Christchurch, New Zealand. Forty-nine unarmed people at the most sacred of venues - a place of worship, were massacred by a white terrorist acting upon the dangerously held ill-fated ideology of white supremacy.

I offer my deepest condolences to the loved ones of those deceased and I pray for their faithful strength during a time of great sorrow.

In Memory of a Mother, a Believer, a Life Victim of Societal Circumstances and of Deficient Governance to Protect Women

[My Mother died on pi day - 03.14.15. In respect and in memory of her, I hereby repost my Blog that was published, 03.15.15.]

Monte Rosina Pitts, nee Boyce, died of renal complications from diabetes yesterday in New York City, New York -  her home for the past 45-years, at the age of 75. 

She was my mother. And also mother of Mark Boyce, of Pennsylvania and Marcelene Boyce, of St. George, Barbados, Caribbean. She leaves 10 grandchildren of which four are my sons and 11 great-grandchildren of my siblings on the island of Barbados.

U.S. Senate Rejects National Emergency at Southern Border

The United States (US) Senate voted earlier today to trump president Trump's declaration of a national emergency at the US-Mexico border. The action thus affirms the House of Representatives in its rejection of the Trump's insisting intent to wall-off the sanctuary of the US from Latin America.

President Trump and his desire to build a wall along the US southern border has dominated major infrastructural echoes since he came to Office back in 2017. Democrats and forward-thinking Americans remain opposed to a structural wall as the answer to immigration concerns.

Boeing and the FAA have Erred in the Aftermath of Two-Deadly 737-MAX8 Crashes

While it may be true under strict scientific analysis that both aircraft manufacturer Boeing and the United States (US) aviation regulator, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), have acted within the perimeters of passenger safety by not grounding Boeing's 737-MAX series aircraft following two deadly crashes within five-months, nonetheless they both have erred in keeping a loft a stellar standard in the commercial airline industry.

Last Sunday's crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302, a Boeing 737-MAX8 on the heels of last October 29 crash of another MAX8, Lion Air's Flight 610 in Indonesia, was more than sufficient to demand that the manufacturer take a second look at the full safety spectrum of the new aircraft's system.

Boeing, a New Plane, Two Crashes and Major Safety Concerns

It must be pointed out that Boeing is an impeccably safe aircraft manufacturer, which has safely and successfully transported billions of air passengers over many years. As a matter of fact, almost anyone, who has ever taken an aircraft, is more than likely to have flown a Boeing plane than other brand.

Given Boeing's unmatched safety record and sound reputation as a commercial  aircraft manufacturer, major safety concerns have surfaced that the mega company has not voluntarily grounded the popular planes - the 737-MAX8 in the aftermath of two major crashes involving the aircraft, in the short span of five-months.

Algeria's Long-Ruling President Bows out of Fifth-Term-Run

Abdelaziz Bouteflika, 82, the president of Algeria who has ruled for 20-years, announced earlier today that he will not seek a fifth-term as ruler, thus, he has finally bowed to weeks of protests from Algeria's youth opposed to his marathon-years at the helm of the nation of 41 million people.

Bouteflika's announcement came a day after his return to Algeria from Switzerland, where he had an extended stay since suffering a stroke back in 2013. He won a fourth-term in office in 2014, even after suffering a stroke and with no direct campaigning.
