The House is on Fire!
For the last two years I’ve been working on a project that took me to India to gather stories on the issue of the genocide of women. Female foeticide and infanticide, bride burning, and dowry murders, are leading to a serious skewing of the gender in India. You can learn more about it by visiting my blog The Daughters of India. Though I’ve put the project on hold for the time being, the news articles – each citing serious abuses of Indian women and girls – continue to pour in on a daily basis. This project is vitally important to me, and one that I am committed to return to in the future.
What has my immediate attention is the collapsing economy of the United States, and the myriad of issues surrounding it. Therefore, at this point in time, with the House on Fire, so to speak, I feel that I need to direct my energies into posting articles and videos that are pertinent to what is transpiring, into what many analysts are forecasting will be a full-blown economic collapse. This, as you may well imagine, has far-reaching global implications. In my efforts to be personally prepared, and help inform others, this is where I feel the need to concentrate my time and energy for the time being.
On this site I’ll also be revisiting activism that I’ve been involved with in the past, on issues of healthcare (primarily the inherent abuses in the system), and inhumane policies of the U.S. government, with the goal of connecting the dots to show how these issues are all related. And therefore, pertinent to understanding the whole picture.
Please consider visiting and book marking this site with the invitation to contribute your personal knowledge and experience to help educate and inform others. I’d like this to be a place where we can network. We each have a personal responsibility to help make the world a safer, healthier and just place for all beings. Peace depends on each one of us – on me and YOU!
