Please take the time to see “Earthlings”.

As we contemplate our future while discussing the merits of differing fuel sources, let’s also discuss how we treat the least among us, the animals we live with.  This is a very disturbing, but extremely important documentary.

I watched this 80 minute documentary last night and had difficulty going to sleep.  The images were too striking for me to dismiss as isolated events.  Understand that what is presented here is just the trailer.  I’ve read that the video is on Google Videos.  I haven’t checked so I don’t know for sure.

If you are strong enough to watch this video in its entirety, take the time to talk about it to the people in your life that you care about.

My daughter is a champion.

image

She entered her first dance competition and came away with;

1. One First prize trophy
2. Two gold ribbons
3. Two first place ribbons
4.  A future Star award.
6.  One Gold medal

I have no idea how she did all of this seeing that she competed in only two dances.  She was in a solo dance and a trio.  For some reason the judges felt she was awesome.

Daniel Beaty one-man show Emergence-See!, which explores the impact of slavery on African Americans.

Daniel Beaty recites the poem “Knock Knock” during a performance of his one-man show, Emergence-See!, recorded live at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C.

All Things Considered, July 23, 2007 · Daniel Beaty is the star and author of a one-man play called Emergence-See! In it, a sunken slave ship from the past — with its cargo of bones and chains — magically surfaces alongside the Statue of Liberty in present-day New York Harbor.

The play portrays the response of 43 different characters — old, young, male, female, straight and gay, all of them black — to this puzzling event. Their reactions to the suddenly inescapable memory of slavery vary dramatically.

See ‘Emergence-See!’
