AN UNOPENED GIFT: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D.



International Men’s Day recognizes the importance of human life. Supporters and observers of IMD are interested in seeking help and providing advice to those persons who are considering suicide as an option.

Your life is important and you have an important purpose on this Earth. Thus, you must not allow anyone or any event discourage you. Maybe you have been bullied, insulted or mocked. Probably you are in jail for a crime you did not commit. Probably your reputation or family name has been damaged. Maybe your parents or guardians do not approve of a relationship or career choice. The trauma of divorce, separation, injury or sickness can make you feel sad, depressed and suicidal. However, there is no need to believe that your death will solve the problem.

In addition to the family of International Men’s Day, there are trained and qualified professionals who can provide counselling to ensure you are again on the track in life. There are support groups and telephone hotlines for you to hear caring voices. Imagine strangers are aware of the value and importance of your life! Certainly you must also be aware of the beauty and value of your life. We want you to overcome your problems so you can be that pillar of strength for others who are facing similar challenges. Learn from your mistakes and move on.

Every moment of your life is valuable. Enjoy each second, each hour and each day. You must treasure your contributions to this world. The world will suffer a loss when you are no longer here. Your presence will be missed by friends, co-workers and relatives. IMD celebrates life. IMD celebrates your presence at this moment. Life is too short for you to decide to make it shorter. You have life and feel it is useless. Do you realize that there are many sick and dying persons who wish they had the chance to live another day!

Life is a treasure that we all are given. Don’t bury this treasure, share it with others. The gift of life is for you to enjoy. Don’t keep this gift unopened and forgotten. Open it and enjoy.

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…
