oh, honey, you’ve got no clue just how much I want to cover you in kisses and make you feel loved. 🍯💓
don’t keep people who don’t like you in your life; even if you’re attached to them.
I think that people too often mistake attachment as love and use it to justify keeping people who don’t treat them well in their life. regardless of whether you’re close with someone, if they constantly act as though you’re inferior to them and not good enough, do NOT keep them in your life. you deserve more than that. you deserve people who enjoy your company and personality, and I promise you, those people are out there.
I’ve spent too long silently enduring the company of people who don’t like me as a person because I thought I had to, and I don’t. neither do you.

For many people, witch-hunting is just something they only read in newspapers. But Bhumika Rawat saw it first hand when she went to work in rural Rajasthan, as part of the India Fellowship.
Bhumika met a lady who had been branded a ‘witch’ by her family when her brother in-law committed suicide. The lady was both physically and mentally harassed by her mother in-law and neighbours. They threw stones at her house and abused her. Things got worse for her when her brother-in-law’s wife and son died of AIDS. By this time, even her husband turned against her and began calling her a witch.
Despite the wide prevalence of such instances, there isn't enough being done to prevent such crimes. This, to the extent that slapping a person warrants the same punishment as branding a women a ‘witch.’ Those guilty of these crimes get away with just one year imprisonment and a Rs. 1,000 fine. In states like Rajasthan, Bihar, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and Chhatishgarh, there are now, laws specific to witch-hunting. But the implementation such laws is poor which renders them worthless.
But, Bhumika and Seva Mandir, the organization she was working with as an India Fellow, began supporting the lady and was working on a case against the lady’s family and community members.
Just like Bhumika, you too, can work to create an impact and help transform lives. Apply to be an India Fellow at www.indiafellow.org.
As today is World Social Justice Day, let us take this day as an opportunity to throw light over the challenges that special children face in terms of equality and rights.
One such big challenge is the 'Provision of mediclaim for special children'- this is what one of our student’s sister Mrs. Supriya had to say “The biggest challenge we face now is about obtaining mediclaim insurance for our sister who is a specialchild. As per IRDA norms there is no provision of mediclaim for these children. So the desired change is that there should be a provision of mediclaim for these special children in order to cover their medical emergencies”.

Social justice is an underlying principle for peaceful and prosperous coexistence within and among nations.
The United Nation upholds the principles of social justice by promoting gender equality and the rights of indigenous peoples and migrants. In addition, @unitednations advance social justice by removing barriers faced by people because of gender, age, race, ethnicity, religion, culture or disability.
For UN, the pursuit of social justice for all is at the core of the global mission to promote development and human dignity, hence the General Assembly proclaimed 20 February as World Day of Social Justice in 2007 by inviting Member States to devote the day to promoting national activities in accordance with the objectives and goals of the World Summit for Social Development and the twenty-fourth session of the General Assembly.
For us at #Galaxy4Peace, we join the global world to call on every concerned citizen of the world to support efforts of the global community and other stakeholders in poverty eradication, the promotion of full employment and decent work, gender equity and access to social well-being and justice for all.
