PRAYER FOR THOSE WHO NEED IT: JEROME TEELUCKSINGH, Ph.D. , FOUNDER - INTERNATIONAL MEN'S DAY




          In 2016, the world will again observe the International Day of Prayer for Men and Boys.  It is a special day that continues to promote peace, healing, cooperation and harmony.  Here is a prayer that seeks to reflect on praying for change and those who need prayers in their lives:



We pray for those members of the human family who are considering suicide and attempted to end their lives. Give them inner strength  and faith to overcome personal challenges and ease their burdens.



We continue to pray for fellow global citizens who committed suicide and their grieving families and friends. We pray that their actions will not be in vain but serve as a lesson and light to prevent future tragedies.



Pray for unfortunate fellow human beings who are terminally ill and suffer from painful ailments. Let them realize that suicide is neither an escape nor a solution. Pray for refugees and deportees whose lives have been disrupted.



The world must constantly pray for the victims of natural disasters, child abuse, human trafficking and rape. Give them the power to regain control of their lives. Let them transform their misery to a miracle.



Pray for the persons who are responsible for evil actions. Let them realize the cruelty and suffering that others endure. We pray for the women and babies who died during childbirth. Let their deaths not be in vain and that the future will have improvements in medical services.

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…
