MATE MASIE

"what I hear, I keep"
symbol of wisdom, knowledge and prudence.
The implied meaning of the phrase "mate masie" is "I understand". Understanding means wisdom and knowledge, but it also represents the prudence of taking into consideration what another person has said. ***http://www.adinkra.org/htmls/adinkra_index.htm***

The joy of losing everything: Lia Grimanis at TEDxSixteenMileCreek

Says Forbes contributor Nick Morgan of Lisa’s talk:

An email has been sitting in my inbox for a while now, and I finally got around to clicking on the link to the video it provided. Not expecting much, I started to watch Lia Grimanis’ TEDx talk on gratitude. Soon I had tears in my eyes. 

This is a beautiful talk from a courageous woman who reminds us about what’s important.  It will change how you think about your life right now.  It’s funny, insightful and heartbreaking. Watch it — especially if you need your gratitude cup refilled, as I did after a long day and many little aggravations.

Malala Yousafzai addresses United Nations Youth Assembly (by unitednations)

msnbc:

Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head by the Taliban, spoke at the United Nations today. Read what she had to say here.

“If the day and the night are such that you greet them with joy, and life emits a fragrance like flowers and sweet-scented herbs, is more elastic, more starry, more immortal — that is your success.”

—   Henry David Thoreau, born July 12, 1817, on defining your own success – a timeless, existentially necessary reminder. (via explore-blog)

“Think about it: We’re told over and over that if Zimmerman was afraid of Martin, according to Florida law, he had the right to put a bullet in the chamber of his concealed handgun, get out of his car after being told not to by the 911 dispatcher and follow and confront Martin and shoot him to death.

At the same time, we are told that Martin, who had far greater reason to fear Zimmerman, practically and for reasons of American history, did not have the right to confront his stalker, stand his ground and defend himself, including by using his fists. We are told that this was entirely unjustified and by doing so, Martin justified his own execution.”

Project Eve: WHY I STARTED BLOGGING

"Believe it or not, next week it will have been two months since I started this little adventure. I was already lurking on other blogs and I suppose I just needed a push to get my own site started. That push was actually several days/weeks/months of…

"Dear brothers and sisters, do remember one thing: Malala Day is not my day. Today is the day of every woman, every boy and every girl who have raised their voice for their rights.

Dear Friends, on the 9th of October 2012, the Taliban shot me on the left side of my forehead. They shot my friends too. They thought that the bullets would silence us. But they failed. The terrorists thought that they would change our aims and stop our ambitions, but nothing changed in my life except this: weakness, fear and hopelessness died. Strength, power and courage was born.  I am the same Malala. My ambitions are the same. My hopes are the same. My dreams are the same.

The wise saying ‘the pen is mightier than sword’ was true. The extremists are afraid of books and pens. The power of education frightens them. They are afraid of women. The power of the voice of women frightens them. Through hate-filled actions, extremists have shown what frightens them the most: a girl with a book.

Peace is necessary for education. In many parts of the world, terrorism, wars and conflicts stop children to go to their schools. We are really tired of these wars. There was a time when women social activists asked men to stand up for their rights. But, this time, we will do it by ourselves. I am not telling men to step away from speaking for women’s rights. Rather, I am focusing on women to be independent to fight for themselves. 

Today we call upon all communities to be tolerant – to reject prejudice based on caste, creed, sect, religion or gender. We cannot all succeed when half of us are held back.

We call upon our sisters around the world to be brave – to embrace the strength within themselves and realise their full potential. 

Let us pick up our books and pens. They are our most powerful weapons. 

We must not forget that our sisters and brothers are waiting for a bright peaceful future.”
