It has been a difficult, tragic and sad year for everyone across our world. However, we must continue to HOPE… Hope for our children… Hope in each other. “Never give up!” — be strong … Mother Earth needs each of us! We each need each other!
Let us not lie down in defeat but rise up and join hands… yes, our health depends on one another…. and this beautiful gift of Creation needs each of us. Mother Earth cannot survive unless as individuals we make the commitment to do all we can to save her. No good deed is too small!
Encourage LOVE in one another and when you think you have given all you can, give more!
This is the major economic problem with the USA. Add taxation to anyone who tries to help themselves. Tax policy of 2018 by the Trump Administration was particularly devastating to the Middle Class—- people work extra jobs because their regular 40 hour/week job barely meets basic housing and nutritional needs and then taxation kills their efforts! The American myth of “if you work 40 hours a week, it can support your family of four disintegrated with the beginning of taxation of Social Security during Nixon’s presidency. Reagan added to the misery with his economic policies, from “the needy to the greedy” and for the first time borrowed from Social Security funds—- affecting everyone who has paid into it. “Right to Work” legislation in by the favor of Corporations, left the American worker on the bottom shelf, hanging with bleeding fingernails! Basically, we are screwed. Tax laws must be changed! Social justice— fair wages— respect for the human person, regardless of race or beliefs, or orientation—-must once again be fought for in this country. Human dignity must be restored! We can never standstill—the last four years has made that abundantly clear! We have lost our compassion for one another. Greed has taken over too many and IF I hear one more person say,”if they would just get a job and not be lazy!” I may utu combust!! Who gives a person an opportunity? THAT is the person I want to be and see…that is what each of us must strive to do for one another. No one would be in a comfortable position today if someone had not come along and helped them! We each need to do inventory of who we are and how we got there—-and then PAY IT FORWARD!
Shekhar De has returned to his village to begin an art school for the children. He is selling his own art work to build the school and to provide art materials for the students. In this time of world suffering, here is a man, giving of himself, with HOPE and VISION for the future of those often forgotten or ignored. Here is YOUR chance to do something positive and forget about our own sorrows! If you can, buy a painting of Shekhar De’s to help his art school! Even if you want to donate $5 towards his school, it will make a world of difference to these children. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose!
UPDATE: August 4,2021.
The struggles are many for this open-air Village school since the arrival of Covid. Anything you can do to support this little world of art that brings hope and joy to these village children would be appreciated by Shekhar De and his students.
I have met this great friend, who has now become my brother, from Krishnanagar, India. He has begun an art school for the village children with this hope: “I only want to serve the coming generations to be taught with good intentions for building up a good humanity….if we can establish an art school for the ignored generations I hope human characters will change for the future.”
In this time of global upheaval, a worldwide pandemic, and Mother Earth in such pain, I find Shekhar De’s optimistic attitude for the children in his village and his dream of an art school amazing , inspirational and hopeful!
Please help me improve his WordPress site! Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated! Thank you so very much, dear WordPress friends!
I have tried to help him by setting up a blog on WordPress. Unfortunately, I have become a bit rusty in keeping up with how WordPress functions. And I am at an impasse! And the general question & forum guide isn’t any help and I do not seem able to find a Live Person in WordPress Company to help. Is there such a person?
This is WHERE I need YOUR HELP ! Can someone tell me how to get out of Edit Mode? Please help me help Shekhar De!
While you visit his site, check out his art and if you so inclined or able, consider purchasing his personal art which he is selling so that he can build an art school for the village children and buy their art supplies for them. He wants the forgotten children of our world to have a chance at life! Thank you!
Not to “return to normal” a life that had been so askew
Now is our chance to reduce the “air” pollution
Now is our chance to be kind to each other
Now is the time to erase the concept of race and look into the eyes of each other and see we are ALL ONE… we are ALL human beings…we are NOT red, yellow, brown, black, white—-we are living souls who need each other!
