In 2006 the People of Russia made a beautiful gift to the 911 victims.
The 100 ft. tall memorial is a beautiful “Tear Drop” that is suspended between the broken and cracked rock face that forms the shape of the two towers.
The tear drop represents the tears of the world on that dreadful day known as 911.
Which all sits on an octagon shaped marble where all the victims names are engraved.
I never knew until today that this beautiful tribute to our fallen family and friends of New York City existed. The monument sits next to the Statue of Liberty in Bayonne, New Jersey.
To the Struggle Against World Terrorism (also known as the Tear of Grief and the Tear Drop Memorial) is a 10–story sculpture by Zurab Tsereteli that was given to the United States as an official gift from the Russian government as a memorial to the victims of the September 11 attacks in 2001, 26 of whom were Russian, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.
It stands at the end of the former Military Ocean Terminal in Bayonne, New Jersey.
Ceremonial groundbreaking occurred on September 16, 2005, in a ceremony attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin. The monument was dedicated on September 11, 2006, in a ceremony attended by former U.S. President Bill Clinton
The need for world peace is now.
Our governments treat us poorly to cause tension. Which leads to violence and world disarray. Which is then followed with the economy tanking. Which is finalized by terrorism and war.

Meet the mad scientist and creator Prof. Charles Spence. He is an experimental psychologist at the University of Oxford. He is the head of the Crossmodal Research group which specializes in the research about the integration of information across different sensory modalities. He also teaches Experimental Psychology to undergraduates at Somerville College. He is currently a consultant for a number of multinational companies advising on various aspects of multisensory design. He has also conducted research on human-computer interaction issues on the Crew Work Station on the European Space Shuttle, and currently works on problems associated with the design of foods that maximally stimulate the senses, and with the effect of the indoor environment on mood, well-being, and performance. Charles has published more than 500 articles. So as you can see he knows his shit.
Finally this research can be viable with todays “meatless market”. A plant based company asked the “Flavor Professor” to create the patch for them. Hoping this will help bring the “Meat Eaters over to the Vegan side.

But partisan is actually most often used as an adjective, usually referring to support of a political party. so if you’re accused of being too partisan, or of practicing partisan politics, it means you’re mainly interested in boosting your own party and attacking the other one.

In 1973 I had the opportunity to read Ruby Fruit Jungle at the tender age of 13 years old. What an eye opening adventure. I laughed, I cried, but mainly I wondered what it was like to be these characters. Every day after school I would rush home and shut my door and dive into the book. I would read until my mom called us for dinner. I thank Rita Mae Brown for opening my mind and giving me the opportunity to read and experience this book.

United States Representative Tulsi Gabbard is an American politician and Hawaii Army National Guard major serving as the U.S. Representative for Hawaii’s 2nd congressional district. Elected in 2012, she is the first practicing Hindu member of Congress and the first Samoan-American to represent a state in Congress. Gabbard’s announcement of her intention to seek the Democratic nomination in the 2020 US presidential election made her the first female combat veteran to run for president.
On December 18, 018 Tulsi Gabbard brave bold statement was a brilliant stance on the impeachment vote against President Donald Trump .
The House voted 230 to 197 to impeach Trump for abuse of power, and 229 to 198 for obstruction of Congress. Votes fell mostly along party lines but Gabbard, a 2020 presidential hopeful, cast the only “present” vote on each article of impeachment.
After the vote, the Hawaii congresswoman issued a statement saying Trump “violated public trust,” but that voters would be able to hold him accountable in the 2020 election.
“I could not in good conscience vote against impeachment because I believe President Trump is guilty of wrongdoing,” she explained. “I also could not in good conscience vote for impeachment because removal of a sitting president must not be the culmination of a partisan process, fueled by tribal animosities that have so gravely divided our country.”
I like that Tulsi Gabbard is her own drummer. I don’t see her being dragged into the puppet show any time soon. Thank You Tulsi Gabbard for standing for the truth…
