It is with sadness that I note the passing of a great Canadian advocate for social justice - Joan Jones, former partner of Rocky Jones - from Nova Scotia. Joan opened her home and heart to inspire a generation of leaders to take ground to overcome oppression and to assert human rights and dignity for all. Thank you, Joan Jones, for your sacrifice, for your passion, for your love of humankind.

Young people freely speak their truth, even when they don't realize it. Their innocence and unconditional love is very touching.

Let's support those who devote time and persistence to call out social injustice. When you are not part of the dominant group, it takes more energy, personal sacrifice that could be devoted to your personal family. These brave, courageous individuals choose to contribute to the family of human kind - and for that sacrifice, I am grateful.

So true! I just was re-watching the Smithsonian documentary on “The Green Book”. Such hardship, such abject discrimination irrespective of one’s talent, or the over-all support of an oppressing visible group: black people, North or South, could be and were publicly abused, attacked humiliated. The goal of “The Green Book” - to be put out of existence - so that the freedoms of all citizens of The United States of America would have equal access to housing, health care, businesses, education, recreation, respect, freedom of association, fair treatment in the justice system (and add your own issues).
