Hello, Caitlyn! The world has been waiting for you!

Yes, the world has been waiting for Caitlyn to be born, even though maybe they didn’t know. The world needed her in order to understand, learn tolerance and develop a new attitude. Her life story is an example for us: you might look like you have it all, but inside your not happy. It’s like being  and acting like somebody else all your life. At one point or another in life we all do that. Some all their life, some only for few days, but we do that. And we do that because we are  afraid of how society will judge us. So I have to say that Caitlyn did us all a favor, no matter if we wanna change our genre or change our lifestyle. We must put our happiness first and start not caring about what people say. It will make us happy. And our happiness will make our loved ones happy. And then it will be a happier world.

Although we saw the male version of Caitlyn, Bruce Jenner for many years in a reality show, we didn’t know his struggle. I can only imagine how hard it was for him to put his happiness aside for his family. And eventually he realized that this sacrifice is not making them happy because he was not happy. He was angry. And now they know why.  This person looked like he had it all. Family, success, money, houses love, everything that a human being could ask for. He won the gold medal for the Olympics. He achieved this all with a price, losing his own identity. Would he have this all if he was Caitlyn from the beginning? I guess will never know.

Bruce Jenner, Olympic Decathlon Champion

Talking about Caitlyn’s (former Bruce) family I can only admire how that family is passing through this hard period of time. It is not an easy job to be in the spot light and to reveal all your emotions. Maybe they got used to it in so many years, but this is not the point. Seeing how they care for each other and how they supported Bruce on his path to happiness is wonderful.

Kardashians and Jenners

I can only hope for good things coming from this public change. Hope the lesson that was learned and the love that was shared. No matter what. Idealistic,but worth dreaming. Caitlyn is a happier person now, why wouldn’t you be happier?

”Mă tu ești nebun la cap, unde dracu ai văzut, de ce scrii zero mă băiatule? Pune zero la rezultat. Mă tu ești normal la cap? Mă tu ești normal la cap, tu ești întreg? Unde dracu ai văzut pus acolo? Tu nu ești în stare să urmărești o dată cu noi? Mă tu ești normal, mă băiatule (profesoara începe să ridice tonul)? Tu nu îți poți reveni la ritmul colegilor tăi? Du-te naibii în pregătitoare. Du-te în grădiniță. Pleacă în pregătitoare! Incapabil să te concentrezi. Toți sunt acolo (n.red. fac bine), dar el e pe nicăieri. A scris trei imbecilități pe prima coloană. Mă băiatule, tu ești întreg? Unde îți stă mă capul? Vino dracului la catedră să te păzesc ca pe un copil mic. Jumătate de creier ce esti! Adu-ți scaunul să fii supravegheat ca bebelușii. Bebeluș!… Tu dormi noaptea? Că văd că sforăi aici, fără sunet. Unde am scris noi 01, 02 și 04? Tu notezi numere de telefon? Că mi-oi vărsa plămânii aici pe masă, de mi-a țâșni sângele din gât! Să mor eu dacă înțeleg ce vrei să spui. După ce vii la școală dacă nu știi unde esti? După ce vii? Ca să ai de unde merge acasă? Păi stai acasă și nu mai veni”.

Translation:

“Are you crazy?! Where the hell dd you see something like this, to write zero? He writes zero at the result Are you sane? Are you sane? Where the hell did you see? Aren’t you able to keep it up with us?! Are you crazy? (she screams)  Aren’t you able to keep it up with your colleagues? Go the heck to preschool! Go to kinder garden! Go to preschool! Incapable to concentrate. Everyone is here, but his is nowhere. He wrote 3 stupid things on the first column. Oh boy, are you sane?! Where’s your mind?! Come the f*ck to my desk to watch on you like you’re a baby. Half brained that you are! Bring your chair to babysit you! BABY! Do you sleep at night? Because I see that you are snoring, but without sound. where did we write 01, 02 and 04? Are you writing down phone numbers?  I’ll threw my lungs on the table and blood will gush out of my throat! I’ll die and I wouldn’t understand what are you saying, Why are you coming to school? Where are you? For what are you coming? To have a place where from leave home? Stay home, don’t come anymore!”

This happened a few months ago in a primary school in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. The student is in first grade, learning how to add and subtract numbers. And the pupil was writing zero before the final results (e.g. 10 – 4 = 06 ).

Did you know that, in almost in every country, any form of violence in schools is illegal? There are few states in USA that do not have any laws regarding violence in schools, tho.

This kind of behavior of professors makes children either insecure, passive and introverted or violent and naughty. Promoting this kind of attitude at such a young age has an humongous impact on how children will act in the future. It comes as no surprise that in high school they change their entire attitude towards professors. They lose their respect and interest on every subject where they meet with an rather aggressive professor.

In my experience this had a great impact. I had a primary school teacher that banged my less “smart” colleagues with their head on the chalk board if they didn’t know the result of a simple equation. She also used to hit our palms with a ruler if we miss-behaved. I remember that I used to laugh of those who suffered from this treatment, in my eyes I was better than them because I never received any of those and I didn’t play with them in breaks.

This is the best example I could give you. Pupils which are assaulted suffer not only because of the teacher/professor but also because of the other students. They will be marginalized by the other children because, well, they are not like them.

It is such a simple equation. If violence is transformed in something productive or in alternative ways (this is not an alternative:) ) of education. Even if you are old and tired or you’ve lost your patience, there are solutions. For example she could have let the moment to pass and in break take the kid and explain him that the zero it is not necessary because it is implied. And if still he did not understand give him examples from day to day activities which obvious would make more sense to a 7 year old.

Ofcourse there are people (specially in East Europe) that will say that she must have done that already and she had lose her patience. I worked with kids and that is not true. But if it is true, than she should quit her job yesterday.

It is said that the professor is the one that educates you and gives his/her best to make you a role model of the society. which in this case was not even close.

So if you are a professor. Please take some classes of informal education and i promise you that your hole career will change in a way that you’ll never imagine. There are so many NGOs that can provide you with materials that you only have to ask and they’ll help you.

Maria Korodi here, lets change the world.

The hardest way to realize your impact on your kids.

Lately I have been drifting trough internet trying to read more and more about how parents influence their kids and found the most shocking article I ever read and heard. After I finished reading it and hearing it: my knees started to shake, my heart trembled, I started crying and I felt my world torn apart. I always was the type of person who strongly believed that children are fragile and should not suffer, in my teens I was so eager to  do something about child abuse that I volunteer at a kinder garden to help with the summer school and when I had the time help the older ones whit their homeworks, summer project and even play games. I thought then that I could make a difference.Now I think that I left the filed because I was way too hard to solve every child’s issue and be there for each of them, in fact it was impossible. Most of them were coming from a harsh life, with poor and disfunctional families whom beaten them and put them through physical and mental violence. And it’s not that I gave up, but I started educate them. I worked with middle school children until last year and it was fun.

Back to the article … I hope that you’ll find motivating and if you ever hear this kind of fighting in which babies and kids scream in the most violent way, just knock at the door to only temper things or if it continues call the authorities (at least that’s what I’ll do in this case)

Lisa Floyd only 6 years old called the 911 emergency line, During this call she is in tears as she begs the dispatcher to send a police because her stepfather is beating her mother everything she describes that is happening is horrifying to listen to and you can really feel the pain in her words.

Fortunately for her, this wasn’t the end of Lisa’s story. Though, like many stories, things got worse before they got better.

RyuzakiKun23, Children of Domestic Violence and Field Education

It was around this time that Lisa found out about the tape. According to Field Education, Lisa vaguely remembers signing over rights to this 911 call audio recording to her, but she had no idea this tape would be “used to educate people about the effects of domestic violence on children.” Even with years between her and the incident, Lisa is still not able to listen to the call and relive the events of that night. She does wonder why this particular recording has gotten so famous. She said she called the police hundreds of times when she was a young girl, and Child Protective Service (CPS) workers came out to her house at least twenty-three times. She and her siblings were never taken away. When she was younger, she didn’t want to be taken away from her mother and was glad CPS never took her away, but, now that she can look back, she wishes they had… really breaks our hearts here at AllViralPosts.

On the Children of Domestic Violence blog, Lisa shares her personal story and starts it all off with, “I’m Lisa, a survivor with a future, because of my past.” She talks about the difficulty of growing up and how life continually tried to drag her down, “I started to believe I wasn’t worthy. I felt like a failure, destined for nothingness. I didn’t believe I could change my life or my situation.” With these feelings, she moved into a relationship just to feel something, but it didn’t take long before the relationship turned abusive. She put up with it for years, but was eventually able to break away. She attributes a lot of that to “people who have entered my life during this transition. The ones who took the time to encourage and nurture my growth.”

Near the end of her story she says, “My journey isn’t over – I still have many lessons to learn and obstacles to overcome. I’m just not afraid to take them on.” I think it is important for people to remember. You aren’t stuck where you are. You are simply facing an obstacle you need to overcome. With the help of people who care about you and your own belief that you have worth, you can survive and become stronger

Listen to the video below, but remember that it involves implications of domestic abuse and child abuse. While listening to it and remember that this little girl is alive today and is on the right path to finding safety and happiness in her life.

The positiveness of this people (http://fb-24.allviralposts.com) it’s a bit off place if you ask me. It bothers me because it seems that they didn’t even listen to the audio. Yes, she’s on the right path, she’s good now, but was it worth the pain?

MARIA KORODI HERE, SEE YOU AROUND.

Vivir la utopia – Anarchism in Spain

Published by Dr. Whoifof

“Living Utopia is a unique documentary that blends the historical account of the origins and development of the Spanish anarchist movement, and the revolution of 1936 — illustrating an anarchist society in action.

Workers opened communal cafes where people could eat for free. Communities set up food committees to arrange food supply with the countryside — market commerce and money was replaced in many areas by distribution according to need. Free schools, universities and health programs were set up and administrated by the workers themselves. Rural areas were collectivised. This experience, in which about 8 million people participated, showed that anarchist organisation of society could indeed work in practice. It truly was a Living Utopia.

This documentary-film by Juan Gamero consists of 30 interviews with those involved, and is both an informative and inspiring piece of research. The testimonies of the anarchist militants are very moving and show the constructive work of the social revolution in Spain, as well as the amazing educational and cultural events which lead up to 1936. Interviews are combined with visual materials such as manifestos, photographs, excerpts from film documentaries, portraits and other relevant graphical elements. “

THE NEURODIVERSITY MOVEMENT

by Irina Hentea

Pondering over the importance of social movements I think I found a very motivating reason for why every once in a while we should read/write/get involved with what social movements do for society: they bring about CHANGE. Or they make us consider changing hard wired beliefs and practices.

 It is now common knowledge that the human brain is resistant to change. This happens because the brain consumes a lot less energy by simply sticking to the already formed neural circuits. And yet, beyond our biological determination, we can form new patterns which as an output for our discussion here, means we can build up new social meanings for let’s say… the word disease. There is a social movement that tries to achieve that; such a movement is the Neurodiversity Movement, which is thought to have started with a speech made by Jim Sinclair at the 1993 International Conference on Autism at Toronto[1] encouraged by an existing need for recognition and respect towards a social category that ought to have been viewed as diverse as opposed to pathological, or “not normal”.

Norges miljøbevegelser (Norway’s Environmental Movements) – Being eco-friendly before it was cool

by Maria Purcariu

What does the fox say?

This is what Norwegians are currently most known for. But this is not their biggest pride and joy. Read the text to find out more stuff about the people who made it possible for foxes to still exist and for this song to be produced.

While during the 1960s and 1970s social movements of all sorts became fashionable worldwide, Norwegians were taking action in an attempt of protecting their most valuable heritage: nature. As they have developed this custom of using nature for recreational purposes, such as reindeer hunting, fishing or mountaineering, a word referring to that actually entered their dictionaries: “friluftsliv”, meaning outdoor life in Norwegian. The idea of spending time outside merely for pleasure was imported from England, and it was successfully combined with local traditions.  In this sense, the first set of preservation regulations was adopted at the end of the 19th century. Generally, these assured the protection of the small areas surrounding cities that were used for recreation and the reasoning behind all this was preserving the beauty and rarity of these places.
