At home and abroad, Americans are on a killing spree. I struggle to understand what’s driving our propensity to violence. As a nation, we also seem to have become numb to this violence.

We do little to nothing to address the scourge of young, white, male loners who go on killing sprees in our schools, colleges, cinemas, and other public places. Our guns, it seems, are more sacred than the lives of our children.

Then there are cases of policemen who go rogue. What’s more, they show a preference for African American targets. Anything – even daring to look at them – is an excuse for killing. Peaceful demonstrators against such injustices must face a police force armed for war.

When We All Work Together – The Naqaqa Family Farm, Fiji

Published on Oct 29, 2015

Beauty, song and the Garden of Eden in this second film in the series from Vanua Levu — a very magical and musical short about Setareki the farmer and his family at the Naqaqa farm, near Nandala Bay and at the foot of Mt. Serenitoba on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji. (Naqaqa is pronounced Nanganga.) They grow Taro, Casava, and vegetables — and they sing. Like angels.

Prepare to be amazed, inspired, and humbled by Setareki Tulagi and his family as they sing for us from the Naqaqa farm, near Nandala Bay and at the foot of Mt. Serenitoba on the island of Vanua Levu, Fiji. Setareki and his family grow Taro, Casava, and vegetables on their farm while they sing like angels. When we all work together how happy we’ll all be. Family is important and you should love each other is the ending message that is conveyed in this beautiful video.

They stood in the rain, a sea of hats and coats and all with one purpose. It was to pay respects to a police officer that was gunned down in the prime of his life.

The thousands of police officers and members of the public took strength from the showers as they paid their respects to this hero of New York.

Police Officer Detective Randolph Holder was a hero long before he gave his life for his adopted country. As a child he was obedient and respectful. He had seen members of his family as police officers. His grandfather and his father Randolph Holder (Sr.) were police officers in Guyana and they helped to inculcate that old-fashioned discipline in the young man. In Guyana the police is viewed generally with respect and in many cases is an extension of the discipline practiced in the home.   Continue reading
