In the midst of the daily complaints in the media about this problem and that, it’s a relief to sometimes see the bright spots. In this past week for example, my daughter in Canada sent me a wonderful story about a group of fire-fighters from South Africa (see video below), who showed up as volunteers to help with the horrendous bush fires that had hit Alberta destroying hundreds of homes.

The Canadian firemen were exhausted after almost a month fighting the raging fires every day; the 281 South African firefighters arrived in Edmonton, Alberta, about a week ago to help battle the massive fires spreading across the province – and their first reaction was to immediately burst proudly into song and dance. One of them told reporters that one of the reasons they came was a consequence of Canadian support for South Africa in its apartheid battle some years ago. “This is payback time,” he said.  Continue reading

The collapse of parenting: Why it’s time for parents to grow up

The collapse of parenting: Why it’s time for parents to grow up

Not long ago, Dr. Leonard Sax was at a restaurant and overheard a father say to his daughter, “Honey, could you please do me a favour? Could you please just try one bite of your green peas?” To many people, this would have sounded like decent or maybe even sophisticated parenting—gentle coaxing formed as a question to get the child to co-operate without threatening her autonomy or creating a scene.

To Sax, a Pennsylvania family physician and psychologist famous for writing about children’s development, the situation epitomized something much worse: the recent collapse of parenting, which he says is at least partly to blame for kids becoming overweight, overmedicated, anxious and disrespectful of themselves and those around them.    Continue reading

A child is born
his mother weeps at his cross
hewn by the Empire.

A child is born
his mother dies in childbirth
to bring him into light.

A child is born
a mother weeps for her daughter
born into bondage.

A child is born
a woman stands by in silence
while he spits out hate.

A child is born
mothers cry out in pain
when men rain fire on Earth.

A child is born
women feed men’s lust and greed
to dominate the world.

A child is born
male and female in harmony
they bring peace on Earth.
