................................................................ I made this video a year ago and posted it on January 1, 2010. And this year, today, Darfur has been - and is - neglected as a humanity-story - a government killing its own people and we call ourselves "human".
"There is no problem we cannot solve, there is no destiny that we cannot fulfill. We will restore our moral standing in the world..." Barack Obama "NEVER AGAIN" just doesn't mean a thing.
Genocide in our time is worthy of being noticed, worthy of being reported by our media, worthy of having the leaders of free nations use their political will ...to end the Darfur genocide and put some meaning to the words "Never Again" . . . words we love to use at the languishing end of each genocide that this planet has hosted.

I love my life. I love where I live. And I am passionate about my passions. I love to dance. Necessary to live: music, piano, singing, writing, acting, painting.
I have been fighting for and supporting the arts all my adult life. Since 2004, I have been working with other activists to end the Darfur genocide.
I have traveled to Europe many times since my early twenties. Places I have been: many USA states including Hawaii, Montreal, Canada, Barbados, France, Spain, Luxembourg, England, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Greece and Germany - and have wonderful memories.
I would like to travel to Europe and Kyoto, Japan.
I love the southwest where I have visited Hopi, Navajo, Zia and San Idlefonso potters.
Life is exciting and I intend to live it full-out to the end.

Genocide is not only a word,
it is crying of the whole human race.
There is nothing redeeming about being silent
when speaking up is the humane thing to do.
The honor and integrity of the human race is at stake.
"...And these for whom life has no repose, live at times in their rare moments of happiness with such strength and indescribable beauty, the spray of their moment's happiness is flung so high and dazzingly over the wide sea of suffering, that the light of it, spreading its radiance, touches others too with its enchantment..."
