We used the colors from several continents to paint the Brazilian: The colors of Africa; Colors of Europe; The colors of Asia.
The combination between them spawned endless identities, cultures and accents within a single country, Brazil.

But if our diversity is abundant, why we are still unequal in opportunities?
If our diversity should be celebrated, why children who are born different do not have equal rights?

Watch the above video and respond:
Which is more beautiful smile?
Which look is more worthy?
Which love is greater?
Which life is worth more?
Is any life worth less?

The right to survive is guaranteed to all children, but a Native child is twice as likely to die than a white child.

Inequality also affects black children. They are 25% more likely to die before reaching one year old than white children.

The right to protection has no ethnicity, but poverty in childhood has a color. It Reaches 32.9% of white children and 56% of black children. Why?

The right to learn also has no color but a Native child is three times more likely to be out of school than a white child. Of the 530,000 children who are out of school today, 62% of them are blacks.

Even though they are more than 54% of all children of the nation, black and indigenous children are the most excluded.

These numbers reflect in the daily life of every child and teenager. Be them black, white or the natives who live this reality of inequality, they carry the illusion that black, white and natives should occupy different places in society. Schools, TV programs, in the streets, books and folk stories for kids are developed with twisted images of social roles according to skin color.

UNICEF mission is collaborating with countries to ensure equal rights for every child and teenager. Brazil won significant improvements in the lives of their children, but the impacts of racism still has harmful effects on them.

Children were not born discriminating. Promoting social equality is critical for the social and economic development of a country. Participate. Contribute with your behavior.

Each of us can guarantee a country equality without discrimination. Value differences in childhood is to cultivate equality.

In the middle of a plate, a candle left

No one around,

Only her gazing at the empty space

What to say?

How to find out what she feels?

This was a perfect day

It seemed so joyful

She smiles at time

And thinks of him

She wants to live, scream, feel

She wants the universe over her

She wants to run free and find her place

Like a twist of fate

An accelerated melody

Like a song that never ends

She needed someone to understand

Understand how alone she was

In the middle of a crowd

What could she do?

She was a broken toy

The madness of all lovers

A blank Holliday

A forgotten spirit who returns

A castaway at sea

She was a summer of love

She was just herself

One more Victory on the ongoing battle against child pornography. A small victory indeed but a huge step towards freedom for our children on this planet.

MEXICO – A child pornography ring operating from Mexico City and contacting their victims through Facebook and Twitter, was thwarted by prosecution authorities of the state. It highlights the digital version of Mexican newspaper El Universal.

According to a statement from the General Federal District Attorney, the investigations to these alleged criminals began in September 2010. Through them we could discover that they used social networks to contact their victims, children aged between 8 and 14 years.

In addition to Facebook and Twitter, the criminal group would have created child flirting pages and emails in order to have more contact with these children.

Sexual abuse

After getting intimate images of minors, these criminals would send the material to pedophiles from other countries in America and even Europe.

Besides the obvious gravity of the crime, the Mexican authorities are investigating because there are cases that have gone beyond the virtual, and have ended up with sexual abuse against minors, says El Universal.

One of the things that hinder the punishment of those responsible for these crimes is the lack of complaints by victims. Officials urge parents to monitor their children relationships established through social networks, and suggest not to let children interact with strangers.

In this new music video collaboration, 16 global artists celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The artists in the video include Yungchen Lhamo, a Tibetan musician who was born in a Chinese labor camp and at the age of 22 trekked across the Himalayas with her two-year old son to escape oppression from the Chinese regime.

I received this letter a few hours ago, took action right away and now I’m waiting on you to do your part……

Mexico’s Attorney General’s office has identified 34 police officers who are suspects in the rape, assault and brutal treatment of dozens of women. But sheer neglect from officials in Mexico’s highest ranks has delayed justice for nearly four years.

There’s no better day than today to signal to Mexican officials that the rights of these women will never be forgotten. Help us send a tidal wave of emails supporting these women to the offices of Mexico’s President, ambassador to the U.S. and the governor of Mexico State!

Police detained the women during a local protest in May 2006. Some women who weren’t even involved in the demonstrations were swept up in the massive arrests. They were beaten and herded into police vans. On the way to prison, officers took turns sexually assaulting the women.

Nearly four years later, they are still waiting for justice.

Accountability for these crimes may be moving at a glacial speed, but your messages do have power. The former federal Attorney General had dragged his feet on this issue for months. At the time of the attacks, he was in charge of the same police officers who were implicated in the assaults. But because of you, his office was compelled to identify 34 suspects – bringing us one giant step closer to finally prosecuting those responsible.

Even though his office has now punted responsibility to the state of Mexico, which is the governor’s jurisdiction, it’s clear that we’re putting pressure on all the right places.

Help us keep the heat on Mexican officials to ensure justice for the women of Atenco!

We can’t let this opportunity slide through our fingers. The crimes have been exposed. The suspected culprits have been named. Now is the time to uphold and protect human rights!

No more sweeping brutal beatings and rapes under the rug in Mexico.
Ensure that those responsible for these crimes are brought to justice.

Thank you for standing with us,

How many times we look at ourselves on the mirror wishing for a big change and being someone else?
How many times we let life take control of our intents to succeed?
How many times we look around and see people we know, even our family members so easily going up levels in life that we couldnt imagine possible while we are still here at same level seeming for always?

How many times we feel frail and weak, we want to cry, talking, being ourselves, but nobody will notice.
How many times we feel like going away. starting another life, in a far distant place where no one can ever guess who we are?
How many times we felt we completely failed by any means?

Then we catch ourselves in a thought: “How about that changing once and for all? How about opening my own doors ( I have so many inside myself) letting in and letting out, anything, facing life up for a challenge, I’m my own challenge.

I’m the only one who can change everything, the only who can get my self respect back and not losing it again.
I can give myself a chance to be happy, I can learn to be happy, smile, to be heard, to be powerful, I can only release the power within, within myself.

The way people treat me depends only on the way I make them see me, I can make them see me with different eyes, loving myself so I can love others, changing my behavior towards myself, being more self confident, only I can do it, nobody else will change in my place.

I gotta look on the mirror wishing to be myself and having this exactly same life I have right now because is with this life I have that I’m gonna make the difference.
I can’t let life take control of my intents to be successful, i’m going to succeed no matter what, I’m the responsable for that, for my own success or fail, it’s my only choice and chose to go over it keeping in mind success is not at all about money or being a millionaire, now, I will find out what’s success is all about.

I can’t be affected by the capacity of others climbing upper levels easier than me, I’m not disabled, I still can be up and running to go up my own levels, I will just not stop, that’s why I have a brain and legs to run and whenever I can’t run, I will walk, and when I can’t walk any more, I will crawl but will not stop.

I will not feel frail and weak as I know we all have our moments and crying is much like about sex, when we explode and put everything out, we will just feel relaxed, so I will cry yes, I will talk and speak out loud my feelings and thoughts to people cos sometimes they just happen to pretend ignoring to try out our capacity of dealing with indifference.

I will start a new life right here, a new life within myself, full of strength and powerful desire, I’ll change my way to look at the world, I’ll be positive and clean, light and honest with myself, and life will start treating me more positively and cleaner and lighter and more honest cos she will notice I’m trying and she will give me back what im giving to her.”

This is what i’m finding out in my half way journey

What a Saturday is being here, guess 24h is being so lil time for what I’ve acumulated to do here. Woke up so late, having to take my old one to the gym and trainning him then coming to my Yoga class, russhing home to cook, my kids are grown up but I dont like them to have a poorly nutritional meal, especially on the weekends that they tend to eat all sort of junkie and after a school week when not always they have goo food, for their choice or for school menu. My youngest one told me a few weeks ago that the school meal was over before he could even get to the line and the principal went to buy pizzas from his own pocket to feed the kids, I dont know what really happens with that school, but anyways, the day today needs to have a few extra hours, maybe a lot more.

I gotta still cleaning to make, vacuming, organizing, dishwashing, uffffff, I made a few seconds to come over and speak out a lil bit here cos sometimes I just feel im gonna blow out like a bomb, everything on my back, gotta think of me, house, troubleshooting, kids, professional, studyies, sometimes I got the feeling just a robot could do sucha things alone.

I still have my Etsy Store and Artfire Store that I sell for profiting for my Imediate Causes and to buy more material so I can keep my hobby and still help the cause.

Talking about that, I need to make more pieces, there are a lot of people around interesting in new colors for spring, this is what relaxes me most, my hobbies on making wired, hippie and vintage flaired stuff together with the delicious polymer clay art and my blogs I love.

I think if it wasn’t for that plus my yoga twice a week, I would have been already crazy or? who knows 😛
