I’m at work and I had an entirely different Blog setup, so hopefully I get to finish what I write.
I cannot believe what’s happening in New Zealand right now, Christchurch. Trying not to cry at work, is incredibly hard. I cannot believe it, but at the same time I can. You hear all the time now how alt-right violence is on the rise.
For this not to be called a terrorist attack, is disgusting, not surprising. That’s what so sad. They must have been planning this attack for months, and I am willingly to be no one was watching them. 3 men and one woman have been taken into custody at this time.
This is not a time for left vs right, this is a time for “This is just flat out wrong”.
Too find out as well that one of them at least, live streamed this…They are going to Hell.
I hold Facebook accountable, I hold every single person who have attacked Muslim people accountable. I hold Twitter accountable for consistently giving into to racists. I hold people like Laura Loomer, Milo Yiannoplus, Candace Owen. I hold the PM of Australia and the immigration minister accountable.
IT’S TIME TO START MAKING RACISTS ACCOUNTABLE.
Lest We Forget…So that we can live
Today is Australia and New Zealand day of remembering and respecting. ANZAC Day is our day to honour and remember solider present and past from all the War of which we participated and those soldiers who died, so we cold be free. The date of the 25th of April commemorates the anniversary when Australia and New Zealand both were apart of the first campaign that led to major casualties for both countries.
For most people it’s a pretty emotional day, as I am sure that every country around the world experiences the same kind of feelings when they commemorate their soldiers. The feelings I feel, the appreciation for what these young men and women did for us, the freedom they gave to us. I try to hold onto that feeling for as long as possible. I tend to find during the next few weeks after ANZAC Day, I do things, stay off of social media things and get a lot more proactive.
What do feelings do you all have? Do you find yourself doing a lot more “proactive things” after you celebrate your soldiers?
As the page mentions I am doing Fact Friday every second Friday instead of every single Friday and it just happens that this one, does in fact, fall on Good Friday…How lucky, lucky readers!
Good Friday is observed mainly by the Christian tradition of when Jesus Christ was nailed to the cross in Calvary, but is now a widely observed legal holiday. Where people can take a few days off over the “Easter Weekend”.
Good Friday is the Friday before Easter. Easter falls on the first Sunday following a Paschal Full Moon, the full moon on or after 21 March, taken to be the date of the vernal equinox. The Western calculation uses the Gregorian Calendar, while the Eastern calculation uses the Julian Calendar, whose 21 March now corresponds to the Gregorian calendar’s 3 April. The calculations for identifying the date of the full moon also can be different.
In Eastern Christianity, Easter can fall between 22 March and 25 April on Julian Calendar ( between 4 April and 8 May in terms of the Gregorian calendar, during the period 1900 and 2099), so Good Friday can fall between 20 March and 23 April, inclusive (or between 2 April and 6 May in terms of the Gregorian calendar).
Easter Friday is also known as “Hot Cross Bun” day in Australia, UK, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada.
