Daddy: Reflections of Father-Daughter Relationships – Edited by Dr. K E Garland

From the blog by Rosaliene Bacchus..

Three Worlds One Vision

Book Cover - Daddy Reflections of Father-Daughter Relationships Edited by Dr K E Garland

So much noise scrambling my thoughts as I read Daddy: Reflections of Father-Daughter Relationships edited by Dr. K E Garland. On arrival at our southern border with Mexico, refugee children – referred to as illegal migrants – are separated from their parents. A two-year-old girl screams while a U.S. Border Patrol agent questions her mother. Where is her father, I wonder?

Back to my reading of Daddy.

In her account, “Abandoned at Breakfast,” BB – a writer, wife, and mother whose parents had divorced when she was a kid – recalls her emptiness when her father didn’t show up for her baby shower.

“Behind the makeup and flashing cameras, I was still the little girl who longed for her father’s embrace,” BB recalls. “I wanted [my father] to accept me and tell me that I was beautiful, even fifty pounds heavier.”

DENTAL OUTREACH TO GUYANA – Week of July 23. 2018 – Donations Requested

DENTAL OUTREACH TO GUYANA – Week of July 23. 2018 – Donations Requested

When is the last time you have any thought to your teeth? Most of us never think about them unless there is a problem. Despite the fact that our smile is the first impression we make when we meet someone, our teeth are necessary for eating, and our dental health reflects our overall physical health, most of us don’t think twice about them. In the US it is standard to visit the dentist twice a year to maintain proper dental health. In Guyana, however, that practice is rarely followed. For most Guyanese, dental health goes way beyond being a luxury, it is not even a consideration.

In light of this tremendous need, Robert Lawrie, 4th generation Guyanese who has written a book about his life as a Guyanese man living in America, has put together a team of professionals to make dental health accessible back home. Working with clinicians from Miami-Dade College he is bringing this team to Guyana during the week of July 23 to offer free dental services.

Canada leading the way in moral decay – By Yvonne Sam

Canada leading the way in moral decay

By Yvonne Sam

God keep our land glorious and free! O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. O Canada, we stand on guard for thee. 

The words above are the lyrics to the Canadian national anthem, but sadly none of it rings true any longer.  Oh! Canada can’t you see, no one is standing on guard for thee. Today while there is much more knowledge available than any other time in history, very few would take umbrage at revelation of the fact that people are no wiser than before.  On the other hand many would contend that that we are living in a particularly foolish period —– a period that is largely and visibly wisdom-free, especially among those with the most knowledge: the best educated. Catapulting at an almost rapid pace as the absence of wisdom is the decline in morality.      Continue reading
