Hi Brenda.... your music is a down to earth... i love it as it heals my weaknesses and bestows me peace of mind although i do not know the meaning of the lyrics but surely ...a thumbs up for me. Blessing for you
Hi Brenda.. you asked about the Love is the Answer picture... well, I lifted it from another social network or somewhere... I think it is being passed around enough that it would be OK to use it on your page somewhere...
Your music is so great... devotional music like this is really one of my favorite things... I wish I was closer to you in Canada to hear your music.... but wait... oh my.... you will be in Fairfax right next door on the 21st... I will try to make it up to see you there... I hope I can fit it in my schedule.... oh darn... I just checked and I will not be around... are you staying in the area any longer?? I get back on Sunday.... It would be so cool to meet another Architect here in town... let me know your schedule if you are around the Bay Area....
I have just returned from Geneva where the United Nations is preparing a conference to be held 20-24 April to look at current manifestations of racial discrimination and xenophobia. As a non-governmental organization in consultative status and active in human rights issues, the representatives of the Association of World Citizens participate in the preperations as well as in the conference.
In many parts of the world, there is an intensification of xenophobia - fear of the foreign- usually expressed as fear and rejection of the foreigner. We see propaganda against immigrants and the promotion of doctrines of cultural and religious superiority. Yet each situation is different. Thus, to prepare our contribution to the Conference, I would be glad to receive your experiences and analysis of the area where you live or know best concerning xenophobic currents and the rejection of cultrual diversity.
As things now stand, I think that I will stress three issues on which I have worked before, but I am open to other additions:
1) Migration. Migration for work is already an important world pattern and is likely to grow with the impact of the economic downturn. It is important to look at the ways that migrants are treated. The fear of migrants and their impact on society is an important factor in xenophobia.
2) Trafficking is an aspect and a particular form of the patterns of migration. There is a large underground economy linked to trafficking in persons. Trafficking is often treated as a police matter with little concern for the people so trafficked. Linked to the issue of trafficking is violence against women, especially women trafficked for the sex trade. While there are many forms of violence against women - often within the family - we can safely say that there is little trafficking of women for sexual purposes which is not associated with violence against women.
3) There is a need to strengthen the United Nations and regional institutions to deal with the consequences of migration and trafficking in persons.
I would be glad to receive your comments and suggestions at my personal email
