#FollowingRuthAdria------------Here is another photo of Ruth Adria. While I work on my lawsuit I focus on the decades of work that Ruth Adria has done without any sort of recognition or admiration by our society. It's a shame that our real leaders and heroines are ignored while the junk bond leaders get to power. What's required is a Renaissance by citizens that can begin when mummies kick government of Alberta rump in the next provincial election. We're tired of Pablum promises. We want action. And we won't get it from the GOA. We'll get it from grassroots organizations like the Elder Advocates of Alberta Society and the JHC folks.-

Don't wait for the GOA for change in our society. Instead go find activists like Ruth Adria, Velvet Martin, Jessica Ernst, Diana Daunheimer and Stewart Shields. Watch and learn. Follow them. It takes a small group of leaders to ignite change.
Find your leaders. Ignite change --grassroots organization by grassroots organization. Unite all together under one umbrella organization for the rights of all of us. This is how we make change happen. Without government. We lead the way. Ignite Change folks.

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Canadian Federation and the 140th anniversary of Treaty 6, the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights is proud to host Ignite Change: A Global Gathering for Human Rights.This event will bring together people who are, individually or with others, acting to promote or protect human rights.

The audience will include beginners, activists, educators and mentors focused on collective dialogue on critical human rights issues facing Canada and the world while building strategies to affect positive change. Four issues have been identified as critical to the landscape of human rights defenders. The topics that will be explored during the Gathering will include: Hate; Drugs; Arms; and Human Trafficking.

Ignite Change will reflect on the global and local realities of these four issues, discuss root causes, identify solutions and strengthen our collective capacity to move forward as Canadians; reconciling a difficult past.

The Global Gathering team is seeking dynamic and innovative people to present workshops and creative sessions or spaces that will support our goal of strengthening collective commitment and action as well as deepen the discourse on these four identified topics.

The workshops should fulfill the following criteria:
Relevance - the workshop/session/space should either be an educational opportunity to deepen dialogue and learning on the four issues at within the global and/or local communities; or it should be a skills building opportunity that will enable people with practical applications and tools to advance human rights in their community or globally.
Ingenuity - the workshop/session/space may be presented in a variety of media  such as roundtable, panel, dance, visual arts, spoken word, theatre… feel free to be creative with your suggestions and think outside the box!
Presentation - all presentations should be culturally relevant  and sensitive, as participants will be from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences.

I have taken Rebecca back to the Villa Marguerite. She was very slow. Actually nearly everyone at the Villa is slow. I will pick her up in two days -Sunday for more art work and movies. She made a fantastic piece today in reds that I will sell on a future blog for thousands of dollars.
In any case, after I left her to her decent meal at the place I came back to eat my indecent meal of pierogies and sausage chunks. Not tasty. But the meal is done.
Right now I don't want to do more medical file searching. I am tired of looking at chart notes. I still have to go through ten thousand pages. The lawsuit is enormously paper intensive. My right small finger is now throbbing as it is swollen up with typing stuff out. I wonder if I can simply nap now?
Outside the stream of trees is floating by like balloons let go. The geraniums got watered inside. I had to water them as they were getting burnt and the violets were already crisped.
Paper all over the floor. Where is a cooler when you need one?
