THIS DAY WILL COME: NICOLE S. DANTZLER

WE ALL HAVE SMILED
AND WE ALL HAVE LAUGHED
BUT WE ALWAYS HOPED AND DREAMED
WE IMAGINED THE DAY THAT WOULD BRING US TRUST
THE DAY THAT WOULD SET US FREE
OUR HEARTS ARE FREE BUT OUR SOULS ARE CHAINED
WHAT CAN THAT POSSIBLY MEAN?
THAT OUR HEARTS CAN SOAR BUT OUR SOULS ARE TRAPPED BY A LACK OF HUMAN BELIEF

I STAND ON TOP OF THE WORLD WHILE LIVING IN SUCH POVERTY
TRYING TO OVERCOME MY DOUBTS
BUT I HOLD ON TIGHT NEVER FORGETTING
THAT SOMEDAY THIS DAY WILL COME

WHEN YOU FEEL THAT YOU’VE GIVEN UP ON HOPE
LOOK BEHIND YOU
WE ALL HAVE MADE IT THIS FAR
WHY GIVE IN NOW
ALL THE HURDLES WE JUMPED
EVERY MOUNTAIN WE CLIMBED
EVERY STEP THAT WE TOOK
BY FAITH WE STAND

SO CHERISH THE MOMENTS WHEN YOU SEE SOMEONE SMILE
SAVOR THE MEMORIES WHEN YOU LAUGH TOGETHER
TAKE A PICTURE WHEN YOU ARE UNITED AS ONE
AND PASTE IT ALL IN A SCRAPBOOK WHERE YOU’LL ALWAYS REMEMBER

BUT TELL ME HOW LONG
HOW MUCH LONGER WILL IT TAKE FOR THIS DAY TO COME?
JUST BELIEVE IN YOUR HEART THAT SOON WE’LL MAKE IT TO THE END, TOGETHER

DRAWING A STRAIGHT LINE TO RECIDIVISM, SUSTAINABILITY, AND RENEWED PROSPERITY IN PHILADELPHIA

Heralded by many as the “Next Great American City”, the fifth largest metropolitan area in the United States, the City of Philadelphia is on the move.  Real estate developers are transforming an area between Market and Chestnut Streets spanning from 11th to 12th Streets once considered the epicenter of Philadelphia into East Market, a towering and expansive structure which will be home to residential units, restaurants, retail outlets, and office space. Looking westward, a cluster of gleaming glass and steel skyscrapers which rise above the end of the Walnut Street Bridge and which appear to obfuscate the line of demarcation between the City of Philadelphia’s downtown business district, University City, and the neighborhoods surrounding Drexel University and the University of Pennsylvania come into view .. These developments are helping to create excitement about Philadelphia. Despite the perceived “renewed prosperity” of Philadelphia’s downtown business district an…

SEEING INVISIBLE MEN AND BOYS: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.

On 19 November 2015, a panel discussion was held at the Student Activity Center at The University of the West Indies, in Trinidad and Tobago (in the Caribbean). It was spearheaded by an undergraduate female student, Ms. Michelle Roopnarine, and featured Dr. John Gedeon of the University's Office of Planning and Development; Ramia Coleman, the Chairman of the all-male Hall of Residence on campus; and Jonathan St. Louis-Nahous, the Guild of Students' Representative for Part-time and Evening Students. The panel successfully generated some interest and lively discussion among a cross-section of students on campus and across faculties. During the past five years, similar small scale observances have been held on campus. Despite this recognition many students and members of the public are still unaware of the existence of International Men’s Day.
From 1999, International Men’s Day was tailored and revamped to continue building the global Men’s Movement and promote an ideology that…
