IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R)'S "CHILDREN'S CORNER" CELEBRATES 10TH ANNIVERSARY


In 2004, a brilliant, compassionate, courageous gentleman who was also the patriarch of my family -- a Man who always encouraged  everyone around him to reach their full potential, called upon IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD® to create a CHILDREN‟S CORNER.  "In Search Of Fatherhood(R) should have a Children‘s Corner.   It‘s just a suggestion for you to consider,"  he whispered in my ear. In 2014, I am celebrating the tenth anniversary of CHILDREN‟S CORNER and the life of this wise Village Elder who would have turned 100 years old on 31 March 2014. Although he passed away on 24 May 2010 at the age of 96, his legacy is perpetuated  through CHILDREN‟S CORNER. During his lifetime, he was the center of his family‘s universe and a positive  male role model. He understood that our children are always asking us::  "Do you hear me? Do you see me? Do I matter?"  Listening to our children – our bridge to the future -- and providing them with an avenue to express their dreams and share their view of the world clearly demonstrates to them that they are being seen, heard, and that they really do matter.


CHILDREN'S CORNER is this Wise Village Elder's gift to IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) -- and more importantly -- the Children of the World.  IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) is continuing to perpetuate this gentleman's legacy by extending an invitation to all Children -- throughout the world -- to contribute poems and essays for publication in forthcoming issues of IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R). 


Poems and essays can be e-mailed to: insearchoffatherhood@gmail.com or mailed to:  IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R), Post Office Box 3885, Philadelphia, PA  19146-0185 USA.  


For further information about CHILDREN'S CORNER, contact IN SEARCH OF FATHERHOOD(R) by sending an e-mail to its Managing Editor, D.A. Sears, at: insearchoffatherhood@gmail.com or calling 267-581-3963.

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…
