This is a special year for the human rights community. We march to celebrate the progress of the last 70 years but also to demand the changes needed to make the world fair and free for all”

— Erica Rodgers, National Director of Youth for Human Rights

WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, UNITED STATES, November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a world where fundamental human rights are being abused, a group of human rights advocates have decided to gather together to stand up for human rights. Sunday, December 9th, 2018, at 1 pm Youth for Human Rights DC Chapter will lead a march in honor of the 70th Anniversary of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights

The march will begin at the Lincoln Memorial and end at the World War II Memorial. Attendees are being encouraged to wear something blue in support of the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).

Erica Rodgers, the National Director of Youth for Human Rights International and organizer of the march said, “This is a special year for the human rights community. We march to celebrate the progress of the last 70 years but also to demand the changes needed to make the world fair and free for all.”

The United Nations launched their human rights awareness campaign under the banner of #StandUp4HumanRights in December of 2016. This year’s Youth for Human Rights DC march will be supporting that same theme.

Adopted 70 years ago on December 10, 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was compiled as a result of the egregious human rights abuses perpetrated during the Second World War. With the end of that war, and the creation of the United Nations, the international community vowed never to allow atrocities of that kind to ever happen again.

Youth for Human Rights DC’s march is part of a global series of events happening in many cities across the US as well as countries around the world in celebration of Human Rights Day 2018. From California to Copenhagen, Washington DC to Taipei, similar marches will be happening across the globe to celebrate this day and the anniversary of the UDHR.

AAS Calls for Billion Dollar War on Suicide as CDC Reports Record-Setting Increase

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Association of Suicidology (AAS) calls on the nation and its suicide prevention partners to address suicide at the scale of the problem.

“Our Nation must immediately and dramatically increase the funding for suicide prevention and intervention research. We must mobilize a nationwide public health effort in the face of the deaths of more than forty four thousand Americans annually,” says Colleen Creighton, AAS Executive Director.

This response comes after a CDC report, released today, highlighted a record-setting Increase in rates from 1999 – 2017 (10.5 per 100,000 to 14 per 100,000, respectively). The report found significant increases in suicide across all demographic groups; these increases are unprecedented in the history of suicide data reporting since 1950.

“In the face of these numbers, the current US investment in suicide research is embarrassing. It amounts to less than ¼ of what our nation spends on dietary supplement research alone,” says Anthony D. Wood, AAS Board Chair.

For those people who want to join us in our mission to better understand suicide and to support those affected by it can learn more at www.suicidology.org.

For the Media: Responsible reporting on suicide, including stories of hope and resilience, can prevent more suicides. Please visit the Reporting on Suicide guidelines for more information.

About AAS: Founded in 1968 by Edwin S. Shneidman, PhD, AAS promotes suicide as a research discipline, public awareness programs, public education and training for professionals and volunteers. The membership of AAS includes mental health and public health professionals, researchers, suicide prevention and crisis intervention centers, school districts, crisis center volunteers, survivors of suicide loss, attempt survivors, and a variety of lay persons who have in interest in suicide prevention.

SL Tamils are Inviting the U.S. to Save them from Chinese Invasion; the US Should Consider for Mutual Interest of Both

Tamils in Sri Lanka with US flag and Portrait of POTUS

Tamils are calling for US help

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, November 29, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SL Tamils are Inviting the U.S. to Save them from Chinese Invasion; the United States Should Consider this for Mutual Interest of Tamils and Americans

First of all, India does not have guts to do anything about the Sri Lankan crisis or a Chinese invasion. They are a detached watcher of what is occurring in Sri Lanka.

Both major Sinhalese political parties are pro-Chinese. Clearly Ranil Wikramasinghe is the one who agreed to hand over the Hambantota port and signed a 99 years lease arrangement with China. Presently the Chinese are utilizing it as their maritime port.

As we all know, recently chosen Prime Minister Mahinda Rajapaksa is a dear companion of China. The Chinese gave millions of dollars during 2015 presidential and parliamentary election. The Chinese aided Rajapaksa’s regime and helped him during the ethnic war against the Tamils.

The U.S. doesn't gain any benefits from Sri Lanka, but Sri Lanka utilizes the American capacity to escape from war crimes and for other trade advantage.

The Tamils are stating that Rajapaksa will receive billions of dollars from China to shroud the monetary inconveniences that Sri Lanka is confronting now. It is clear that with an additional ten years of ruling of Mr. Rajapaksa will borrow several billion dollars from China.

Tamils are terrified that Sri Lanka, in order to reimburse the loan, will give the Trincomalee harbor and numerous strategical areas in the Tamil inhibited region to China for an additional 99 years.

Tamils are strongly opposed to China’s invasion of their homeland. Any assistance given to the Tamils by the U.S. would help the international community freely use the Malakai Way sea lane in Indian Ocean. If proper a political solution is addressed, Tamils will have their territory either by US-style federalism, Bosnian-style federalism, or an autonomous nation.

Tamils do not have faith in current TNA leader Mr. Sampanthan and his assistant Mr. Sumanthiran. Many believe that these two politicians have sold out for positions and perks. In the last local election, the TNA lost its mandate from Tamils from 75% to 33%.

Now is an optimal time for the U.S. to come to Sri Lanka directly address this issue. Tamils are willing to sign 99 years of assurance from the US to shield them from China. The world will welcome the U.S. putting its full commitment into this worthy cause.

We would like to further reiterate that Tamils who have lost their loved ones, the parents of missing children and people who have lost their homes, ranches, and terrains to the Sinhalese army, are calling America to come to Sri Lanka and help.

Mavericks’ Wesley Matthews Shoots for Diapers

1 in 3 U.S. families struggles with diaper need. For every 3-pointer he makes this season, Mavericks’ shooting guard Wesley Matthews will donate 3 boxes of diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network.

Every 3-pointer made by Dallas Mavericks' Wesley Matthews this NBA season will spark a diaper donation to National Diaper Bank Network.

Every parent wants what’s best for their kids and every baby deserves clean diapers. So, the issue of diaper need is near to my heart and my family.”

— Wesley Matthews

DALLAS, TX, USA, November 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dallas Mavericks shooting guard Wesley Matthews is adding his 3-point prowess to help raise awareness of diaper need and support for the one in three U.S. families who struggles to afford enough diapers to keep their baby clean, dry, and healthy.

For every 3-pointer he makes during the 2018-19 NBA season, Matthews will donate three boxes of diapers to the National Diaper Bank Network, a nonprofit organization that helps families access the material basic needs babies require to thrive.

Government programs designed to help children do not provide funding for diapers, a basic necessity for all babies. There are currently 5.2 million infants and toddlers living in poor and low-wage families in the U.S.

"Every parent wants what’s best for their kids and every baby deserves clean diapers. So, the issue of diaper need is near to my heart and my family, and I want to use my platform to help raise awareness," said Matthews. "Our children are the future and we need to make sure we do everything we can to set them up for success. One in three families can’t afford this simple, but required need for children and babies. Hopefully we can get that number to none in three. Every child deserves to be clean, dry, and healthy. I am excited to launch this campaign with the NDBN and get people involved."

Raised by a single mother and with support from his grandmother and aunt, Matthew’s hopes his “3 for 3” campaign inspires others to get involved and donate diapers and dollars to the National Diaper Bank Network and its more than 200-member diaper bank programs that provide millions of free diapers to poor and low-wage families in communities throughout the country.

“We are thrilled to partner with Wesley and agree that all families should have an adequate supply of diapers for their children,” said Joanne Goldblum, founder and CEO of the National Diaper Bank Network. “For families in need, diaper banks are frequently the only community-based resource they can count on to access the diapers needed to keep a baby healthy. Wesley’s support draws attention to the issue of diaper need and to that fact that all diaper banks require ongoing community support.”

Often a hidden consequence of poverty, diaper need impacts the physical, mental, and economic well-being of children and families.

Of families in diaper need, three-in-five parents (57%) miss work or school due to a lack of sufficient diapers required by childcare, day care or early education programs to care for a baby or toddler. As a result, parents experiencing diaper need missed an average of four days of work or school in the past month (source: Diaper Need and Its Impact on U.S. Families, 2017).

Seventy-three percent (73%) of all families feel they’re not being good parents when their children are left too long in dirty diapers, while one-in-three households in need experience feeling stressed or overwhelmed by diapering always or often (source: Diaper Need and Its Impact on U.S. Families, 2017).

According to the Center for Economic and Policy Research, the poorest 20 percent of Americans who buy diapers spend nearly 14 percent of their post-tax income on diapers.

About the National Diaper Bank Network: The National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) is a nationwide nonprofit dedicated to eliminating diaper need in America, by leading a national movement to help meet the basic needs of all babies and their families…including access to clean, dry diapers and other material goods. Founded in 2011 with the support of Huggies®, the network raises national awareness of diaper need (#DiaperNeed) and supports the development and expansion of diaper banks in communities throughout the country. Its active membership includes more than 200 diaper banks, diaper pantries, and food banks located in 47 U.S. states and the District of Columbia. More information on NDBN and diaper need is available at www.nationaldiaperbanknetwork.org, and on Twitter (@DiaperNetwork) and Facebook (facebook.com/NationalDiaperBankNetwork).

Can Sexual Abuse Survivors and The Church Achieve Justice?

Attorney Alvin de Levie in the Courtroom

Church officials and sex-abuse victims are both seeking a shared resolution that provides justice to all those inflicted by clergy abuse.

Church officials and sex-abuse victims are both seeking a shared resolution that provides justice to all those inflicted by clergy abuse.”

— Alvin F de Levie, Esq.

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, November 28, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

Making a sexual abuse claim — even one about a member of the clergy — is gut-wrenching and requires a team of attorneys that understand and empathize what a victim has been through. Lawyers like Alvin F. de Levie have both the compassion and the courtroom experience to help sexual abuse victims work their way through the process of seeking fair and just compensation.

In the aftermath of Pennsylvania's grand jury report, all parties – survivors, lawmakers, and Catholic bishops – agree on one important aspect: There needs to be a reformation of the statute of limitations for sex-abuse crimes.

However, the bishops and numerous survivors have come to a standstill regarding another issue: What is the best acceptable form of justice to all involved?

In the grand jury report, there was blame placed on the hierarchy of the Church for covering up the sexual abuse that 300 predatory priests carried out on more than a thousand children throughout seven decades. The report also put the blame on the leadership of the Church for prohibiting abuse victims from turning to the American justice system for support.

On Sept. 25th, the Pennsylvania House of Representatives passed a reform bill on the statute-of-limitations that extends the time limit on sexual abuse civil claims from 30 years to 50. Furthermore, the bill also eliminated criminal case statute of limitations.

The Pennsylvania Catholic Bishops' Alternative Mechanism

The bishops opposed the statute, stating that creating such a time-limited window lifting the civil statute dismantling the civil statute of limitations would cause problems for the Church. Such as potentially leading to diocesan bankruptcy, crippling or even causing some existing social services and ministries to close, and stripping the diocese of its resources in order to provide healing and compensation to the victims.

For those reasons, the Pennsylvania Catholic bishops made a proposal of this alternative mechanism: an independent committee-administered voluntary compensation fund. The committee would contain qualified specialists with no ties to the Church, who would judge the claims and compensation amounts. In addition, this compensation fund would also eliminate the ordeal of litigation for victims if they chose to do so.

Archdiocese' Plan To Compensate Abuse Survivors

Recently, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia revealed their new plans of the compensation fund for sexual abuse victims and sent out letters to over 300 victims who have all proven to be credible.

The archdiocese set up the independent program as a way to compensate the childhood sex-abuse victims under the responsibility of the archdiocesan clergy, no matter when the incident occurred.

Administrators have stressed that this program is independent and purely voluntary and that there are no caps on the financial rewards. However, there is one condition that must be abided by the victims – they must waive their rights to ever pursuing any legal action against the church now or at any point in the future in the United States.

This special compensation committee was established following the grand jury report from last summer which outlined the details of over 1,000 children who were abused by more than 300 priests outside of the city of Philadelphia in six dioceses over the period of decades. In response, the grand jury made the recommendation that legislators extend a two-year window to victims allowing them to file civil suits for the decades-old abuse. This move was passed by the House of Representatives, but the state Senate brought it to a halt. Furthermore, the Church also opposed the move.

As a solution, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia recently announced the creation of the Independent Reconciliation and Reparations Program (IRRP).

Since the creation of the Office for Child and Youth Protection fifteen years ago, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia has spent upwards of $18 million providing care and resources to abuse victims.

The Archdiocese of Philadelphia was also center of grand jury investigations back in 2005 and 2011, which uncovered similar sexual abuse patterns in childhood victims. Following that Philadelphia investigation and in the recent grand jury report involving the additional six Pennsylvania dioceses, the outcomes were closely similar. In both cases, the priests were identified as sexual predators – and in addition, the church leaders were determined by the grand jury to have been involved with covering up the abuse.

The program's administrators revealed that a package of information which included applications was sent to the Archdiocese's 342 identified victims.

Affected victims are encouraged to complete the applications provided on the IRRP website to submit a claim. Victim Support Facilitator, Lynn Shiner, will also be able to help clergy abuse victims submit their claims if they choose to ask for assistance.

Respecting Victims Of Sexual Assault

Following the outcome of the Pennsylvania grand jury report, it's extremely important to know that victims of sexual assault deserve the utmost respect while going through their healing process.

Victim privacy will always be a basic need, and if a victim wishes to remain anonymous, their identity should be protected at all costs.

This is why it's common practice for media professionals to refrain from providing victims' names – unless, of course, they have been given permission to do so.

By keeping the names of sexual abuse victims private, it protects them from any further reoccurrence of victimization that can present itself if they lose control over their story and or identity.

Common Behaviors In Sexual Assault Victims

It is not unheard of for survivors of sexual abuse to initially deny any occurrence of abuse. This is usually due to the feelings of humiliation and shame that victims can sometimes experience following an attack. This can result in the victim feeling isolated and alone.

And, with childhood abuse victims, they can especially feel like outcasts after seeing their young counterparts lead normal, unaffected lives. This feeling can lead to victims feeling ashamed and may remain silent about their abuse for years, and even decades – which can lead to long-term effects on their mental health.

It's found that many survivors of childhood abuse may wait until their adult years to ever share their secret. This can especially be the case with male victims, as they may fear that their abusive past may have something to do with their own sexuality – or, worry that others might be under that impression.

Due to all the shameful feelings associated with child sexual abuse, it is a typical – even normal, response for victims to delay reporting their abuse to authorities.

Victims of child sexual abuse can sometimes feel terrified for their story to get out, or scared that they won't be believed. There are many overwhelming feelings that can leave victims with an internal battle over whether or not they should report their abuse, which can go on for many years.

It's also important to remember that child victims can often feel confused about the sexual abuse they have endured. And, their abuser may have even used fun activities to form a bond and initiate the sexual activity, which can confuse the child even more.

And, in some cases, childhood victims may even continue to have a relationship with the person who abused them despite the sexual activity – which can also cause them to have conflicting emotions.

The continued relationship can be the result of the victim's parents not knowing about the child abuse despite the child not wanting to see their abuser or the victim may even have a special bond with their abuser – especially if they are a family member or close friend.

Mixed Recollection of Sexual Abuse

With some child sexual abuse victims, their recollection of events may change over time. This is because their knowledge and experience evolve as they get older, and they develop a different understanding of the incident.

Throughout the duration of their lives, they may handle their abuse in different ways. Adult survivors might initially flat out deny the abuse, or choose to bury their stories.

But, no matter if their story changes, they choose to not speak of the events, been involved with accidents, suffered from substance abuse or eating disorders, etc. – it does not mean that the victim is not credible or that the abuse never occurred.

The Abuse Is Never The Victim's Fault

It is not uncommon for victims to find themselves frozen and unable to fight off their abuser using physical force.

In fact, most humans tend to freeze when in danger or facing an imminent threat, as opposed to fleeing or fighting back. This is an inherent biological response that has been discovered not only in humans but many other species as well. In this scenario, the brain commands a part of the body to shut down, as a way to improve chances of survival. But still, the sexual violence survivor may still experience self-blame.

Victims of sexual abuse are never to blame for their assault; the fault is entirely on the abuser. The victim should never have their instinctive response to the incident called into question – no matter if they are a woman, man, teenager, etc.

CCHR Warns Officials: Mental Health Screening and Psychotropic Drugs Can Contribute to Violence

CCHR campaign launched to educate law enforcement, policy makers and school officials about violence- and suicide-inducing drug risks

27 international drug agency warnings link psychiatric drugs to the adverse effects of violence, mania, psychosis or homicidal ideation

27 international drug agency warnings link psychiatric drugs to the adverse effects of violence, mania, psychosis or homicidal ideation

CCHR is urging officials not to adopt mental health screening in the hope that it could reduce violence stating that such screening could worsen the issue.

CCHR has documented 36 school shootings and school-related acts of violence that date back to 1988 with all of the crimes committed by people either taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs.”

— Diane Stein, President CCHR Florida

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) is urging state authorities and educators not to adopt mental health screening in schools in the false hope that it could prevent acts of violence. Such screening could exacerbate the issue if it leads to children being prescribed psychotropic drugs based on the fact that since the introduction of antipsychotics in 1955 and the newer antidepressants, like Prozac, in 1987, both groups of drugs have been linked to violent effects in a percentage of those taking them.[1] Independent of CCHR, Dr. David Healy, an international expert in psychopharmacology, estimated that 90 percent of school shootings, over more than a decade leading up to 2012, were linked to SSRI antidepressants (e.g., fluoxetine, paroxetine, sertraline, etc.).[2] Dr. Healy further warned: "Violence and other potentially criminal behavior caused by prescription drugs are medicine's best-kept secret."[3]

In a comprehensive report released earlier this year, CCHR documented 36 school shootings and school-related acts of violence that date back to 1988 with all of the crimes committed by people either taking or withdrawing from psychiatric drugs. The end result was that 172 people were wounded and 80 were killed.

Cited in the report is Harvard Medical school psychiatrist Joseph Glenmullen who said: “The irritability and impulsivity” from antidepressants, for example, “can make people suicidal or homicidal.” Also cited is Patrick D. Hahn, an affiliate professor of Biology at Loyola University in Maryland who confirms: “The link between antidepressants and violence, including suicide and homicide, is well established.”[4][5]

At least 27 international drug regulatory agency warnings have been issued on psychiatric drugs being linked to mania, psychosis violence, homicidal ideation, aggression and hostility.[6]

The FDA’s Adverse Event Reporting System has at least 1,530 cases of homicide/homicidal ideation reported to it as linked to psychiatric drugs. The FDA admits that only 1-10 percent of drug side effects are reported to its MedWatch program. Taking a moderate five percent, then, the potential number of reported incidents could be as high as 30,620. A percentage of those could be driven to commit violent crimes.

“Officials need investigate the mounting evidence that psychiatric treatment and its failure has had something to do with a large percentage of the acts of violence occurring in our communities,” said the president of the Florida chapter of CCHR, Diane Stein.

In the aftermath of recent school shootings, training in Mental Health First Aide and increased mental health screening of students has been a widely promoted response yet these actions simply lead to a significant number of individuals being labeled and drugged with the very same psychotropics linked to violence in the first place.

Following the shooting tragedy at Santa Fe High School in Texas, leaving ten dead, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott hosted roundtable discussions in the hopes of developing solutions to improve school safety statewide resulting in the Texas Criminal Justice Division of the governor's office providing $565,000 to the Telemedicine Wellness, Intervention, Triage, and Referral (TWITR) Project at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center. The purpose of the TWITR project was to identify junior high and high school students most at risk for committing violence in schools and intervene before it happens.[7] Through the program, at-risk students at ten West Texas school districts who showed aggressive or harmful behavior were identified and then screened for potential psychiatric services.

Since its launch, more than 400 students have been referred to the program, with 200 getting screened for alleged anxiety, depression, loneliness, isolation and whether they're prone to violence or violent thoughts.[8] This is an astounding figure, CCHR says, considering that psychiatrists admit they have no means of predicting violence. In an article in the Rutgers Law Review, Henry Steadman and Joseph Cocozza also concluded, "There is no empirical evidence to support the position that psychiatrists have any special expertise in accurately predicting dangerousness."[9]

Karen Effrem, MD, a pediatrician and president of Education Liberty Watch, points out a number of problems with the project. "While federal, state, and local officials are trying to improve student safety in the wake of the tragic Parkland, FL, school shooting [and now Santa Fe High School shooting], the heightened concern over student mental health has greatly increased efforts to screen students for mental health issues."[10]

Dr. Effrem stated, "There are so many problems with the foundation of these programs, it is difficult to know where to begin. Let's start with the admitted subjectivity of mental illness diagnostic criteria. As the latest version of the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) diagnostic handbook was about to be published, Dr. Dilip Jeste, APA's president at the time, admitted: 'At present, most psychiatric disorders lack validated diagnostic biomarkers, and although considerable advances are being made in the arena of neurobiology, psychiatric diagnoses are still mostly based on clinician assessment.'" In other words, as Thomas Insel, former Director of the National Institute of Mental Health said, psychiatric "diagnoses are based on a consensus [vote] about clusters of clinical symptoms, not any objective laboratory measure."[11]

CCHR warns that mental health screening and the inevitable resulting increased psychotropic drug prescriptions will not only escalate state budgets for no equitable or positive return but more importantly, will put more students, teachers and the community at risk of increased violence. Individuals concerned with the link between violence and psychiatric drugs are encouraged to send a copy of the report, Psychiatric Drugs Create Violence & Suicide to their legislative representative calling for an investigation.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit, www.cchrflorida.org

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, November 27, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health, is hosting a seminar next month to educate citizens on their rights and how they can protect themselves and their loved ones from the abusive use of this law.

The mental health law in Florida, commonly known as the Baker Act, allows for individuals to be taken into custody and sent for an involuntary psychiatric examination. This law applies to people of all ages including children. Last year there were more than 199,000 involuntary psychiatric examinations with those 17 and under accounting for more than 32,000 of these initiations according to the Baker Act Reporting Center. [1] In response to the increasing number of Baker Acts, CCHR is hosting a seminar delivered by attorney Carmen Miller who, as a former Assistant Public Defender in the Thirteenth Circuit in Tampa, has a great deal of experience on the mental health law. Now in the private sector, Ms. Miller specializes in cases of those who have been Baker Acted.

The seminar is being held in the headquarters for the Florida chapter of CCHR located at 109 N. Fort Harrison Drive in downtown Clearwater on December 12th at 6pm. There is no cost to attend the seminar. Having recently received the CCHR Humanitarian Award for her work in the fight to protect individuals from fraudulent involuntary psychiatric examinations, Ms. Miller will educate those in attendance on the specific criteria that must be followed for a Baker Act to be legally implemented. Failure to follow these criteria is an abusive use of the mental health law.

“In order to help stop fraudulent Baker Acts it is vital that people know their rights,” said the president of CCHR Florida, Diane Stein. “Knowledge is power and having an attorney such as Ms. Miller educate people on the law helps protect them from being detained unjustly.”

While the original stated intention of the Baker Act was to protect the rights of citizens sent for involuntary psychiatric examination, it has become a source of great abuse. To learn more about the Baker Act or to reserve a seat please call 727-442-8820.

About CCHR: Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org

Love is Ageless: Grey Muzzle's #WhyWeLoveOldDogs Contest Winners Share Why Adopting a Senior Dog Makes Life Sweeter

“My old girl Daisy knows when to take time to stop and smell the flowers. Or you know, wear them,” wrote Kristin Rainboes in her winning entry.

“I didn’t meet my beloved Rudy until he was over 12 years old,” Adam Grant wrote. “He taught me about the simple joys in life, contentment, and growing old with dignity.”

At 19, Phoebe is “still going strong and enjoying life…This sometimes-cranky old lady makes me smile every day,” wrote Lynda Tersigni.

They teach us to be kinder and gentler, to be more patient with others and more appreciative of the world around us, and–most of all–they teach us to treasure each moment with those we hold dear.”

— Rebecca Genauer, Senior Dog Adopter

RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, USA, November 26, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — From making us smile every day to teaching valuable life lessons, senior dogs bring love and companionship into our lives, as the winners of The Grey Muzzle Organization’s #WhyWeLoveOldDogs contest confirm.

To encourage more people to give a senior dog a forever home this holiday season, Grey Muzzle asked everyone who adores old dogs to post photos and comments on social media with the hashtag #WhyWeLoveOldDogs.

“We hope their heartfelt sentiments and photos of adorable old dogs will be shared far and wide, and inspire more people to open their heart and home to a senior dog who needs a second chance,” said Lisa Lunghofer, executive director of The Grey Muzzle Organization, a national nonprofit that provides grants to animal shelters, rescue groups and sanctuaries working to improve and save the lives of at-risk senior dogs in communities across America.

To see all ten winning entries in full, please visit greymuzzle.org. Here are excerpts from some of our favorites which show why old friends are often the best friends:

“When adopting a dog, my husband and I knew we wanted someone who would love to be loved,” wrote Krista McMillan. Ten-year-old Nigel’s favorite hobby is “to sleep as close to a heartbeat as possible and hold you between his paws. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is.”

Cindy Jane shared her senior dog adoption story: “When I saw Buddy's face online, I knew I had to meet him. He was 12 years old and had been in the shelter for about two years—this completely broke my heart. He deserved to live out his life in a home with a family who would cherish him. A few days later he moved in with us and we bonded immediately.”

According to Kimberly May, 12-year-old Bonnie answers the question, “What do you do best?” with “her eyes and every exuberant wag of her tail…It's in the way she gently leans against you and the way she just knows and comforts you when you're sad. ‘Love,’ she says. ‘What I do best is love.’”

“Because they’re still always up for an adventure,” wrote Melanie Zimmerman Farnon of 14-year-old Burger, who still likes to hike and camp, but now “catches a ride in his dad’s backpack on our longer hikes!”

In her winning entry, Rebecca Genauer summed up why we love old dogs: “Because they emanate pure love and generosity of spirit. They teach us to be kinder and gentler, to be more patient with others and more appreciative of the world around us, and—most of all–they teach us to treasure each moment with those we hold dear.”

We look forward to working in a bipartisan way with all members of the U.S. House of Representatives, the incoming members and the House leadership.

What we want in Iran is a secular, non-nuclear, democratic Iran. And at the time of New Year, let us make that wish something that will come true soon.”

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, November 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Organization of Iranian American Communities supports Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi’s bid to become the next House Speaker

Washington, DC; November 23, 2018 – Organization of Iranian American Communities (OIAC) celebrates the conclusion of another U.S. election cycle and congratulates House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi on her re-election from California’s 12th congressional district, and supports her bid to become the next speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.

Our community’s reverence for free and representative elections, irrespective of outcome, is rooted in the belief that they are pivotal to ensuring basic freedoms, equality, and a prosperous future. Accordingly, a continued struggle for these democratic values remains a goal for all of us at OIAC, guiding our efforts to help the Iranian people free themselves from the jaws of Islamic fundamentalism.

We thank Leader Nancy Pelosi for her longstanding support for our community and the Iranian people. Our community, like leader Pelosi, will continue to advocate for, “Respect for human rights, gender equality, religious and ethnic tolerance," believing that these values are truly the "driving force in effecting further change in Iran."

We look forward to working in a bipartisan way with all members of the U.S. House of Representatives, the incoming members, and the House leadership in pursuing, “our shared mission to build a democratic, free, and non-nuclear Iran.”
