Lizalongnotforreuse-"I am Adam Lanza's mother"-Great article sheds some light on the mental health issue
Sandy Hooks, Article, Mental Health, Guns Control, Mental Illness, Adam Lanza, Soccer Mom, Elementary Schools, Lanza Mothers
"I am Adam Lanza's mother" the mother of a mentally ill child explains why gun control is not the issue: the issue is we are failing to help the mentally ill, leading to a lower quality of life/higher death rate for everyone
Mental illness is real and parents *ALL* parents, not just those with kids that have "issues", need to demand mental health services for children and their families! This is a terrifying article . . . I am Adam Lanza’s mother. I am Dylan Klebold’s & Eric Harris’s mother. I am Jason Holmes’s mother. I am Jared Loughner’s mother. And these boys—and their mothers—need help. In the wake of another national tragedy, it’s easy to talk about guns. But it’s time to talk about mental illness.
riveting read from The Anarchist Soccer Mom - "I am Adam Lanza's Mother > mental illness conversation (Dec 2012)
Written by Liza Long, republished from The Blue Review Friday’s horrific national tragedy -- the murder of 20 children and six adults at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut -- has ignited a new discussion on violence in America.

Mike Graston's Colour Cartoon For Saturday, December 15, 2012-It breaks my heart, that this season when families take the time to share the joy and the love that they bring to each other, this time of year, meant to be filled with memories to be cherished for a lifetime; must, instead, be a time of sorrow and loss for so many who no longer have their loved ones to hold on to...only their memories.

Mike Graston Saturday, December 15, 2012. Graston resonates worldwide Coming to tears at the drawing board on Friday, Windsor Star editorial cartoonist Mike Graston knew no words could even begin to describe the heartbreaking tragedy of the Connecticut killings. That’s why he depicted a tender gesture instead – a hug given by Santa to his elves. And he said his inspiration was simple.

Graston cartoon resonates worldwide
In 1960 Joe Kittinger jumped from an altitude of 31,200m (102,800ft) setting several records, some of which remain unbroken! (Update : Felix Baumgartner, with the help of Red Bull and guidance from Joe himself, has now broken some of these records - however Joe still holds the record for longest freefall)
One day I hope to skydive from the atmosphere.

Slavery is alive and well all over the world, and it is estimated that in Mauritania, 10% to 20% of the population lives in slavery. This story offers some clues as to why slavery continues. We must not turn our backs on social injustice... Even if all we do is educate ourselves on the topic and share that knowledge with someone else, we begin to fight back. Silence and ignorance cannot be used as excuses.
An estimated 10% to 20% of Mauritania’s 3.4 million people are enslaved — in “real slavery,” according to the United Nations’ special rapporteur on contemporary forms of slavery, Gulnara Shahinian.

Moulkheir Mint Yarba escaped slavery in 2010. She has asked the Mauritanian courts to prosecute her slave masters. "I demand justice," she says, "justice for my daughter that they killed and justice for all the time they spent beating and abusing me."
The face of one formerly enslaved. Slavery has subsided, but it still exists.
