Humanitarian Advocacy

~ 100 buzzes
This bee hive is one which seeks to share and promote stories, events, and information, and solutions on social issues, from refugees to employees.

A Humanitarian is within everyone of us. We can choose to make a difference in the lives of others. Being an advocate of human welfare highlights the value of life and wellbeing to everyone, everywhere. There are no territorial boundaries, nor language barriers. Need looks the same everywhere. Exploitation looks the same everywhere. Love looks the same everywhere.

This hive will hopefully evolve and become a place where we are able to actively showcase causes, and needs of this community and the world at large.

    ''Normal people are just 'freaks' in civvies '' that is a good description in my book, fair comment I did not know about Somatoparaphrenia tahnks for dropping by @Lisa Vanderburg
    Lisa Vanderburg
    16/11/2016 #26 Lisa Vanderburg
    Most thought-provoking piece that brings to mind other unusual states-of-being. Somatoparaphrenia being an extreme one where a person doesn't recognise a limb or side of their body as theirs; to the point that they may have the limb removed.
    But the point is: it's NOT a choice (or blessing necessarily) to be different and 'normals' should recognise that in compassion instead of vilifying the individual. No matter what, the people we consider different will have a time (or many) in their lives where that would do anything just to not be ostracised, to be like everyone else.
    Normal people are just 'freaks' in civvies :) Just because we can't see their peculiarities does not mean they don't have them! Hell....I do!!

    This is one of those posts that has caused me to think a lot and start about 20 different comments. It is certainly a topic that needs to be raised, @Pascal Derrien, and simply by doing so, you have increased the chances that people may find it a little easier to react to the human heart inside rather than focus on how to categorize someone.

    Gender is a complex, complex topic and I do agree with the need to see it completely apart from sexual orientation, yet even as I say it, it seems impossible because that disconnect between mind and body has to effect the partner as well.

    The most important point is that acknowledging the breadth of the human condition is a starting point for equality.

    Nice segue from the fat chicken Pascal. A great reminder that even the best of us are quick to categorize things we either 1. Don't understand, or 2. Don't want to understand, or 3. Too lazy to find out the facts.

    There are so many mixed messages around sexuality, gender, and sexual orientation these days, it can be a fearful road for someone who has questions or internal conflicts. I certainly do not claim any expertise in that area aside from having family and friends who have struggled. Rather than get on my stump and give a speech, I find that being a good friend to the person they are seems to work well.

    Thanks for sharing.

    #10 True dear Pascal. The mind knows what the body doesn't. And sometimes the body has a mind of its own! :) I was only talking about the fear and distrust of the unknown that we species have. If things are unraveled and demystified/defined acceptance is something that would eventually ensue. Am not sure who is to blame for making it all a shame-game, but defining things would really help i feel. Clarity helps Conclusion. And hopefully, inclusion.

    @Prakashan B.V...thank you for this. It was a great assignment . Sometimes one does not have to look very far to make a difference in the lives of others. I was driving home from the airport at approximately 5am, and I was tired and in a hurry to get back to sleep. I was about ten minutes away when I decided to use a back street. As I crossed an intersection I passed a lady sitting on the ground. Decided to turn around, cause it was a one-way, and give her a smile and some money, and Best wishes for a good day... The smile she gave me, made my day.

    This was a fantastic read, @Prakashan B.V. In the beginning you went through your day intent on fulfilling your need to be kind, rather than observing where it was needed. We all do this so often.

    I remember a tremendous kindness when I worked for Bose in the Boston area. I was a temporary in the HR dept with an end date right before Christmas, as they closed for the week between Christmas and New Years. A woman I didn't know very well - also in HR - gave me a holiday card that last afternoon, dropping it by my desk as she made her way through the office. I opened it and was shocked that she had enclosed a $50 bill. I'd been on a contract for only 3 months and she was not someone I interacted with as part of my job, just someone I chatted with in the hallway. I went to thank her profusely, and she said she remembered how much it meant to her in her early twenties when someone slipped her an unexpected card with cash.

    She said she had heard me talking to some of the job applicants - my role in recruiting was to give a tour of the facility and walk them around to the offices of the folks they would interview with. She said that the small things I said to entice the candidates to work there was obviously sincere and that on more than one occasion she passed me as I encouraged the person to not be anxious and gave them an interview pep-talk.

    This story was tucked in my memory, Prakashan, and you've done a random act for me by bringing it back to my consciousness. I cannot stop feeling how it felt to drive home for Christmas thinking of this colleague who noticed how I did my job and was thoughtful enough to let me know in the most unexpected way.

    Acts of kindness should be an everyday occurrence. For example - Letting the person with only a couple of items in front of you in the grocery store; holding a door open for someone in a wheelchair; letting someone know they dropped something important; listening to others!

    At first glance, this is a beautiful scene. Look again. Down this long path is the office for students with disabilities. I remember my last year at SSU traversing this path with trepidation. Would I end up on the concrete and have to wait for someone to try to pick me up? It's ironic that they have doors geared for the disabled with no thought as to how they could reach them. https://www.linkedin.com/school/18167/#

    "Many people with disabilities are qualified, ready, willing and eager to work. In fact, some employees with disabilities are seeking to work more -- not less. ... In the end, it really shouldn’t matter from whom or where employee talent derives. Ability is what counts most, and it should never be ruled out categorically by employers simply because a person happens to have a disability."

    What a great buzz. And so true. I see us going a bit backward in some respects. My alma mater, Salem State University, built their new, state-of-the-art library (which houses the Office for Students with Disabilities) nearly inaccessible for some students with disabilities. I wished to take part in a program (Orange is the New Black author was coming.) I volunteered for, but as soon as I asked some questions regarding accommodations there was nothing but silence. I had to drop out of the event.

    In seeking employment, I was unsuccessful in all regards. I felt left out of life. I wrote my feelings here: https://www.bebee.com/producer/@joyce-bowen/disability. I have found fulfillment in writing.

    Thank you so much for this detailed and wonderful buzz.

    Thanks so much for your exemplary comments, @Preston 🐝 Vander Ven. I concur with your astute analysis and potent points. Unfortunately, nearly 27 years after enactment of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), disability discrimination in employment and public accommodations remains a persistent problem. This has occurred despite the ADA being amended in 2008 to broaden coverage due to restrictive Supreme Court decisions. The real "disability" is people's biased attitudes, myths, fears and stereotypes about persons with disability-based medical conditions. I would note that 20% of Americans are living with a disability or will have one in their lifetime, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Thus, it's way past time to END THE STIGMA!

    @David B. Grinberg Great Buzz. I like how you mentioned that a large number of people who are unable to work actually want to work and are looking for work.
    Sadly, in today's society the percentage is decreasing when it comes to able body citizens looking for work. The term teenager did not even exist til about 100 years ago. Boys went from children to Men. This is because of need of help around the farms, homes, and businesses. But with the industrial revolution, labor reform and mandated education early in the twentieth century, a gap open between childhood and adulthood, created space to be filled with infinite possibilities. Still today, men and women want to live in this space, and their Peter Pan mindset. They fear the responsibilities of adulthood and crave passivity, looking for programs to take care of them like their parents did. I see this on the news all the time at colleges.
    I, myself, have Epilepsy since I was in 2nd grade do to an injury. I have desired what most would call a normal job most my life. Yet, my condition has prevented me. But, I refused to let that hold me back. My solution was to become an entrepreneur in my spare time on side of my part-time job. Faith is taking the first step even though you can't see the staircase.

    I read this again and it's an exemplary article @David B. Grinberg, you sure do your homework! I can't believe it was in 1990 that GWB I signed the ADA into law. Sometimes 1990 seems like yesterday and kudos to GWB II and Obama for continuing to expound on the importance of this law. You wrote, "It’s hard to believe that one quarter century after the ADA’s enactment, individuals with disabilities still confront a plethora of unfounded myths, fears and stereotypes about their ability to do the job. " I agree, it's very hard to believe. I must say, there are many with disabilities who work possibly harder to prove themselves than the average person because they fear retribution and they are harder on themselves than anyone else could possibly be. Thank you for this! Consider it shared again.

    Presidential Proclamation: https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2016/09/30/presidential-proclamation-national-disability-employment-awareness-month
    President Obama: “Americans with disabilities are entitled to the same rights and freedoms as any other citizen -- including the right to dignity and respect in the workplace. Too often in our Nation's history, individuals with disabilities have been eager to work but could not find a job, facing red tape, discrimination, or employers who assumed that disabled meant unable and refused to hire them. This month, we recognize the significant progress our country has made for those living with disabilities, and we honor the lasting contributions and diverse skills they bring to our workforce.”

    Another important point to remember if you arent' disabled you are very likely only a temporarily able bodied person. I first learned that growing up from Fred Small's "The Talking Wheel Chair Blues": Listen for some perspective.

    One of the things I've been impressed with the Federal Government is how they back this up and hire disabled people. One of the things holding back more hiring, in my opinion, is a lack of education on the disabled and how they can contribute as well as how to appropriately work with someone with a disability. Like all minorities, its a lack of understanding someone who is different that creates fear. The disabled understand those who aren't disabled. So it's up to the able bodied to put in some effort to understand.

    Great topic @Pascal Derrien, I love how you ended this by asking to replace the term invisibility with invincibility. Sadly, a sector of society continues to turn a blind eye (no pun intended) towards those who have disabilities. I'm sure we all know someone who has one and is in dire need of help. It can take a long time to finally receive benefits and many are declined even though they have legitimate disabilities and must re-apply. The funds are slim, so people who do live on disability alone are living below poverty level. We have a long way to go as a society. Kudos to James, he's embracing his disability. I saw a few in wheelchairs during Ironman races too, it brought tears to my eyes- tears of joy that they did it. They put me to shame ;-)

    Thanks for an awesome read @Pascal Derrien. In the USA, October marks the annual observance of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) which is coordinated by the Office of Disability Employment (ODEP) with the federal Department of Labor. I also spread some sweet honey about this back in July to commemorate the anniversary of the landmark Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) . Check out these links and thanks for bringing this important issue to our attention. https://www.bebee.com/producer/@dbgrinberg/why-disability-employment-good-business AND https://www.dol.gov/odep/topics/ndeam/ AND https://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2016/09/30/presidential-proclamation-national-disability-employment-awareness-month
