ALL THE REASONS WHY: CARRY GREAVES



I am me regardless of someone else’s definition or perception. I am the embodiment of strength and tenacity. Wisdom and intuition. Nothing can hold me back. Not a thing! I am the creator of my universe. The symphony of Life,  I am the star that races across the sky during the eclipse. I am the first wonder of the world who will always be -- me.


I am unflinching and confident. I am the change that you will see in the coming days. I am the encourager of peace in the midst of chaos. An advocate for love. I will always be. . . the shaper of my destiny. I am – the builder of my abode. I am the creative force of transformative power that will occur and it shall be done. I am me.


I am the one who allows myself to be in my own way -- which I will never allow to happen. I am, you guessed it, the author of my condition – no one to blame. I am the walking manifestation of truth, love, and harmony – a reminder of who and what I am – me.


I am peace, not hate. Love and not violence. I am Justice, not unfairness. I am ingenious, an innovator, an inventor and not a blind follower. I am not who I am once was, but today I am becoming the person who Ii want to become and that’s me.


I am always learning and absorbing knowledge at every opportunity. I am not what I wear. That doesn’t define who I am. Who I am is an ongoing journey. But I am free because I am able to determine the vogue of my existence in a paradoxical world. But still, I am what others do not want me to be. And that is me.


I am who the world is watching and waiting for. For I exist in the places you least expect. I am for the right thing and not the wrong thing. I am going to fulfill my position as a productive member of the Global Community and be the change that needs to be seen. Be heard. I am the voice that you hear when it seems like no one is paying attention. I am the present, the future, and all of the reasons why. I am me.

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…
