Diabetes on Campus: One College Student Shares her Experience

Diabetes on Campus: One College Student Shares her Experience | Humanity | Scoop.it
For Amanda Mezer, being a college student with diabetes has not been an easy journey, but she does not let the challenges stop her from achieving her goals and leaving a lasting legacy at her university.

...Q: How did things go when you returned to Wake Forest the following year?
A: Not so smooth. I was living in an apartment with two sorority sisters who didn’t like the fact that I had diabetes. During that time, I was bullied a bit because of it and almost got kicked out of the apartment housing. I ended up filing a claim against the school and the sorority to protect my rights. While the issue was being disputed, I took an additional two semesters off from Wake Forest and headed back to Tampa to go to school there and be with my family.

WEED OUT HATE | HOME PAGE

WEED OUT HATE | HOME PAGE | Humanity | Scoop.it

Cultivate. Educate. Advocate.
The Weed Out Hate Initiative is a global campaign dedicated to teaching our children to symbolically root out hate, while planting seeds of peace, love and respect. Symbolically weeding out hate is a lesson that can be taught at all levels, within the family, schools, churches, mosques, and synagogues, nationally, and even globally. This is the greatest opportunity to break the cycle of hatred--all for the price of a single pack of sunflower flower seeds. Just imagine the possibilities of a White House-sponsored Weed Out Hate Mega Event! The magic of the Weed out Hate Initiative lies in the way it inspires parents and grandparents to teach children to root out weeds with a spiritual intention, and how it energizes the children into a new dimension of civic engagement. If you’re a believer, consider e-mailing the President today!

KIRYAT MALACHI, Israel: Israeli archaeologist digs into Nazi death camp - World Wires - MiamiHerald.com

When Israeli archaeologist Yoram Haimi decided to investigate his family's unknown Holocaust history, he turned to the skill he knew best: He began to dig.

 

...Over five years of excavations, Haimi has been able to remap the camp and has unearthed thousands of items. He hasn't found anything about his family, but amid the teeth, bone shards and ashes through which he has sifted, he has recovered jewelry, keys and coins that have helped identify some of Sobibor's formerly nameless victims.

The heavy concentration of ashes led him to estimate that far more than 250,000 Jews were actually killed at Sobibor.

"Because of the lack of information about Sobibor, every little piece of information is significant," said Haimi. "No one knew where the gas chambers were. The Germans didn't want anyone to find out what was there. But thanks to what we have done, they didn't succeed."

The most touching find thus far, he said, has been an engraved metal identification tag bearing the name of Lea Judith de la Penha, a 6-year-old Jewish girl from Holland who Israel's Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial confirmed was murdered at the camp.

Haimi calls her the "symbol of Sobibor."

"The Germans didn't discriminate. They killed little girls too," he said. "This thing (the tag) has been waiting for 70 years for someone to find it."...

The Post Bulletin : Muhammad Babur: Ignorance, fear and hatred make a deadly cocktail

...
Sadly, the struggle against bigotry is as old as America herself, and the uncomfortable truth is that prejudice and bigotry have been entrenched in our society from the very beginning. Starting from the colonial times, Puritans in Massachusetts were alarmed by arrival of Anabaptists; North Carolinians were worried by the influx of Scots-Irish, and Benjamin Franklin was troubled by the growing numbers of Germans in Pennsylvania. Most recently Irish, Black and Jewish Americans have encountered xenophobia and prejudice.
