One of the most insightful answers I have found to the question, “What is Ubuntu?” is contained in a reflection by a South African, Barbara Nussbaum, after the carnage of September 11. Her poignant literary style enlivens the concept. “Ubuntu”, she says, “is the capacity in African culture to express compassion, reciprocity, dignity, harmony and humanity in the interests of building and maintaining community with justice and mutual caring.”
Ubuntu is not just an African philosophy but a spirituality and an ethic of African traditional life. In his work, No Future Without Forgiveness, Desmond Tutu, describes a person with Ubuntu as one with self-assurance who is open, available to others and affirms them.
Even though African society has been largely eroded of this primal value, the kernel of its philosophy remains a veritable motif for the forging of global peace platform. In history, the Ubuntu spirit, whatever name it has been given, is the one that has propelled the world towards oneness in the likes of Martin Luther King, Mahatma Gandhi, Mother Theresa of Calcutta, Oscar Romero, Desmond Tutu, Joseph Stiglitz and Nelson Mandela.
They all embodied the Ubuntu spirit in the different contexts that they lived. It is however not sufficient that the Ubuntu spirit has punctuated history; it needs to be the default consciousness of humanity if there is to be a global culture peace.
Peace is never achieved through peace treaties and agreements because there will always be loopholes to circumvent the treaties, but through a deliberate and consistent commitment to the common good in the spirit of Ubuntu.
The above is an excerpt from Ubuntu, an African culture of Human Solidarity.
We are all weary Deanne . The world seems to be a hostile alien place, full of different factions fighting for control, of us, of our beautiful planet.
Sometimes in the fight for our freedoms, we may forget our ultimate goal is to be united in peace, harmony, mutual respect and ultimately love.
UBUNTU is a philosophy that may have originated in Southern Africa but it transcends race, color or creed. UBUNTU is about us, about being both totally human and at the same time recognising the spark of divinity to be found in each and every one of us.
To look into the face of your neighbour , whoever they may be and see not only yourself in just another form but also the face of God in that person .
We spend so much time looking at the lives of others whom we may feel are more privileged in some way than we are; not realising that our seemingly small lives have huge value, and in fact our small gestures of kindness and love can make the biggest differences.
We spend so much time pursuing “happiness ” and fulfillment we forget these things are found within ourselves and our unique ability to give of ourselves in love . This is where our true joy is. Loving others.
I found this and thought of” us ”
Life is beautiful!
There is more good on this earth than bad.
Remember the things that count, family, friends, a roof over your head, a warm meal shared with friends.
Corona Virus has been reported extensively in both the MSN and the Alternative News Websites. There are however many things not being reported in most of the MSN outlets .
Is Corona Virus a genuine threat or a carefully crafted false flag to bring about another agenda?
Excerpt from the above article by Whitney Webb
DARPA recently spent millions on research involving bats and coronaviruses, as well as gene editing “bioweapons” prior to the recent coronavirus outbreak. Now, “strategic allies” of the agency have been chosen to develop a genetic material-based vaccine to halt the potential epidemic.
This is really interesting, they were talking about it before it happened.
WASHINGTON D.C. – In recent weeks, concern over the emergence of a novel coronavirus in China has grown exponentially as media, experts and government officials around the world have openly worried that this new disease has the potential to develop into a global pandemic.
As concerns about the future of the ongoing outbreak have grown, so too have the number of theories speculating about the outbreak’s origin, many of which blame a variety of state actors and/or controversial billionaires. This has inevitably led to efforts to clamp down on “misinformation” related to the coronavirus outbreak from both mainstream media outlets and major social media platforms.
However, while many of these theories are clearly speculative, there is also verifiable evidence regarding the recent interest of one controversial U.S. government agency in novel coronaviruses, specifically those transmitted from bats to humans. That agency, the Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA), began spending millions on such research in 2018 and some of those Pentagon-funded studies were conducted at known U.S. military bioweapons labs bordering China and resulted in the discovery of dozens of new coronavirus strains as recently as last April. Furthermore, the ties of the Pentagon’s main biodefense lab to a virology institute in Wuhan, China — where the current outbreak is believed to have begun — have been unreported in English language media thus far.
While it remains entirely unknown as to what caused the outbreak, the details of DARPA’s and the Pentagon’s recent experimentation are clearly in the public interest, especially considering that the very companies recently chosen to develop a vaccine to combat the coronavirus outbreak are themselves strategic allies of DARPA. Not only that, but these DARPA-backed companies are developing controversial DNA and mRNA vaccines for this particular coronavirus strain, a category of vaccine that has never previously been approved for human use in the United States.
Yet, as fears of the pandemic potential of coronavirus grow, these vaccines are set to be rushed to market for public use, making it important for the public to be aware of DARPA’s recent experiments on coronaviruses, bats and gene editing technologies and their broader implications.
Examining the recent Wuhan-Bioweapon narrative
As the coronavirus outbreak has come to dominate headlines in recent weeks, several media outlets have promoted claims that the reported epicenter of the outbreak in Wuhan, China was also the site of laboratories allegedly linked to a Chinese government biowarfare program.
However, upon further examination of the sourcing for this serious claim, these supposed links between the outbreak and an alleged Chinese bioweapons program have come from two highly dubious sources.
For instance, the first outlet to report on this claim was Radio Free Asia, the U.S.-government funded media outlet targeting Asian audiences that used to be run covertly by the CIA and named by the New York Times as a key part in the agency’s “worldwide propaganda network.” Though it is no longer run directly by the CIA, it is now managed by the government-funded Broadcasting Board of Governors (BBG), which answers directly to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who was CIA director immediately prior to his current post at the head of the State Department.
In other words, Radio Free Asia and other BBG-managed media outlets are legal outlets for U.S. government propaganda. Notably, the long-standing ban on the domestic use of U.S. government propaganda on U.S. citizens was lifted in 2013, with the official justification of allowing the government to “effectively communicate in a credible way” and to better combat “al-Qaeda’s and other violent extremists’ influence.”
Returning to the subject at hand, Radio Free Asia’s recent report on the alleged origins of the outbreak being linked to a Chinese state-linked virology center cited only Ren Ruihong, the former head of the medical assistance department at the Chinese Red Cross, for that claim. Ruihong has been cited as an expert in several Radio Free Asia reports on disease outbreaks in China, but has not been cited as an expert by any other English-language media outlet.
Ruihong told Radio Free Asia that:
It’s a new type of mutant coronavirus.They haven’t made public the genetic sequence, because it is highly contagious…Genetic engineering technology has gotten to such a point now, and Wuhan is home to a viral research center that is under the aegis of the China Academy of Sciences, which is the highest level of research facility in China.
Though Ruihong did not directly say that the Chinese government was making a bioweapon at the Wuhan facility, she did imply that genetic experiments at the facility may have resulted in the creation of this new “mutant coronavirus” at the center of the outbreak.
With Radio Free Asia and its single source having speculated about Chinese government links to the creation of the new coronavirus, the Washington Times soon took it much farther in a report titled “Virus-hit Wuhan has two laboratories linked to Chinese bio-warfare program.” That article, much like Radio Free Asia’s earlier report, cites a single source for that claim, former Israeli military intelligence biowarfare specialist Dany Shoham.
Yet, upon reading the article, Shoham does not even directly make the claim cited in the article’s headline, as he only told the Washington Times that: “Certain laboratories in the [Wuhan] institute have probably been engaged, in terms of research and development, in Chinese [biological weapons], at least collaterally, yet not as a principal facility of the Chinese BW alignment (emphasis added).”
While Shoham’s claims are clearly speculative, it is telling that the Washington Times would bother to cite him at all, especially given the key role he played in promoting false claims that the 2001 Anthrax attacks was the work of Iraq’s Saddam Hussein. Shoham’s assertions about Iraq’s government and weaponized Anthrax, which were used to bolster the case for the 2003 invasion of Iraq, have since been proven completely false, as Iraq was found to have neither the chemical or biological “weapons of mass destruction” that “experts” like Shoham had claimed.
Beyond Shoham’s own history of making suspect claims, it is also worth noting that Shoham’s previous employer, Israeli military intelligence, has a troubling past with bioweapons. For instance, in the late 1990s, it was reported by several outlets that Israel was in the process of developing a genetic bioweapon that would target Arabs, specifically Iraqis, but leave Israeli Jews unaffected.
Given the dubious past of Shoham and the clearly speculative nature of both his claims and those made in the Radio Free Asia report, one passage in the Washington Times article is particularly telling about why these claims have recently surfaced:
One ominous sign, said a U.S. official, is that the false rumors since the outbreak began several weeks ago have begun circulating on the Chinese Internet claiming the virus is part of a U.S. conspiracy to spread germ weapons. That could indicate China is preparing propaganda outlets to counter future charges the new virus escaped from one of Wuhan’s civilian or defense research laboratories (emphasis added).
However, as seen in that very article, accusations that the coronavirus escaped from a Chinese-state-linked laboratory is hardly a future charge as both the Washington Times and Radio Free Asia have already been making that claim. Instead, what this passage suggests is that the reports in both Radio Free Asia and the Washington Times were responses to the claims circulating within China that the outbreak is linked to a “U.S. conspiracy to spread germ weapons.”

The Final Word From Bill Gates .
Listen very carefully and understand what he is really saying .
This means you ! Do the research , read . Speak to friends, neighbours , family start the conversation !
Not everyone is able or willing to listen .Fear is the ultimate control mechanism , so speak with love and compassion , extend your hand to your brother and sister , help them on their way . We are all on the same path , just in different areas of the journey .
Our liberation is up to us , it always has been .
Much love Deanne , Kitty ❤❤❤
It’s is fear, what could be scarier than a virus that can kill you. Just like Aids, Ebola, and SARS, the coronavirus goes down as another potential pandemic. Like the other pandemics are manmade and weaponized like anthrax. Anthrax is found in nature but humans weaponized it. This practice of bioweapons should be stopped now. Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.
I love the kitty links, keep bringing them and let’s learn together there are not so nice people walking this earth and think we are their guinea pigs.
Lots of information Deanne .
There are countless articles on the internet and in libraries throughout the world .
I have touched briefly on just a few of them .
Always question and keep an open mind !
Gordon Brown has the last word ! Open to interpretation , very interesting speech with lots of key words .
Wow, Lots to sift through! People wake up they have a plan that must be stopped!
As a respite from wars, rumours of wars and the incessant chatter of busy lives, here is something to immerse ourselves in and take a breath.
Art is how we express ourselves, it is how we communicate to each other and the world where we see our place in that world and in the Universe. Art speaks of the human spirit and how, we all strive to find the divine within and without.
I hope you love this Deanne as much as I do. ❤
This is where we began our love of art. These beautiful paintings are an estimated 20,000 years old.
Billionaire globalist George Soros is planning to eliminate the majority of Trump supporters from social media before the 2020 election, according to a leaked document.
The 49 page document outlines plans by Soros to exert his influence, via his immense personal wealth, to pressure Big Tech to censor and purge pro-Trump journalists, citizens and outlets ahead of the next Presidential election.
The document obtained by The Free Beacon states that Media Matters and other Soros funded groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.” [Source]
Entitled, Democracy Matters: Strategic Plan for Action, and composed in early 2017, it lays out the Democratic plan to oppose Trump’s presidency at all costs by waging a daily media war, and we have been feeling the results of this strategy since Trump took office, and after nearly two years as president, the media landscape is in utter chaos, and the population is more divided than it has been since the American civil war.
Regarding Soros, he is a known financier of Media Matters, of which he has supported since 2010 in an overt effort to counter news organizations like Fox News. Soros has developed the reputation of being the world’s leading agit-prop bankroller.
“Media Matters is one of the few groups that attempts to hold Fox News accountable for the false and misleading information they so often broadcast. I am supporting Media Matters in an effort to more widely publicize the challenge Fox News poses to civil and informed discourse in our democracy.” – George Soros
The effort to censor social media began in earnest with the election of Trump which saw the rollout of the term ‘fake news,’ and the Brock memo clearly outlines how this plan was intended to bring about the resulting censorship we see today.
From the Brock memo:
Futhermore, the memo discusses how big tech companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter (all of which are openly censoring user accounts today) will be recruited and called upon to collude with the Soros and Brock agenda in order to manipulate the political landscape.
Collusion between Media Matters and social media platforms runs rather deep, as noted by WND:
The document claims Media Matters and far-left groups have “access to raw data from Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites” so they can “systemically monitor and analyze this unfiltered data.”
“The earlier we can identify a fake news story, the more effectively we can quash it,” the memo states. “With this new technology at our fingertips, researchers monitoring news in real time will be able to identify the origins of a lie with mathematical precision, creating an early warning system for fake news and disinformation.”
Again, if open censorship of American independent media is allowed to take root, everyone will suffer in the long run. While politics may seem like the biggest game in town, above this spectacle are the values and traditions that have made this country worth living in. Once this is gone, America will be totally unrecognizable, and billionaires like Soros will be become our de facto kings and lords.
George Soros 2020
Who are Media Matters?
This memo is so important to National Security, I can’t say enough how important this is. This is a coupe against the president and clearly shows the media bias. They are told to lie and go after anyone who likes Trump. It’s David Brock and George Soros! You’re going down!
Donald Trump’s policies are helping his billionaire friends while making the middle class pay. We are collecting real stories from real people to show the damage being done to middle-class families in Trump’s America.
Like many so-called leftist non-profits, Adbusters is a creature of globalist foundations. According to research conducted by Activistcash.com , Adbusters takes money from a number of supposedly progressive foundations, including the big Kahuna of leftish foundations – the Tides Foundation and Tides Center. Between 1996 and 2003, Tides doled out $334,217.00 to Adbusters, by far the largest amount of eight foundations donating.
Steve Baldwin  claims Tides received over $7 million from George Soros. Although the monetary connection between Tides’ founder Drummond Pike and the arch globalist  Soros is somewhat murky, researcher Ron Arnold  has mapped out numerous connections between the two so-called philanthropists. Under IRS rules, Drummond is not obliged to reveal who he receives money from to fund a large number of supposedly progressive organizations.
I had to send this JD , because I saw this and thought of you, and every one of us trying to help to wake people up
It’s so relevant even today . Maybe this is the solution ?
Open your window and shout it out !
I’m mad as hell! and I’m not going to take this anymore! I’m sick to death that mainstream media is lying to you! I refuse to be oppressed, depressed or follow some 🤬 up narrative from some sick bastard that doesn’t even know me! I’m not racist! My unconscious bias is just fine! I love my president! I’m sick of the Royal Family doing nasty things! I’ve grown tired of the sick and twisted PR coming from Meghan Markle. People are actually believing the bullshit from this thirsty actress!
As you just celebrated Thanksgiving JD, I thought I would explore the deeper meaning of our relationship with food and how by growing the food we can change our individual small corners into a paradise.

When we invite anyone into our home to eat we are asking them to enter our most sacred space: our home. We drop all barriers.
We are making a covenant of reconciliation, and thankfulness not just between each other but with God and Nature itself.
In the food we eat, made with love, we are literally sharing love, filling the spaces between us with that love.
Food is Love and Medicine for all.
Kitty Links! 🐱👤🐱👤🐱👤🐱👤
These are fantastic links you put together, when we work together we can do great things together, and one of those things is to plant a garden. As the man said, if we grow it, they will eat it.
It doesn’t matter where you live or what kind of soil you have, and you can grow it. The soil is pretty crappy here, and my idea was to plant in a pots that palms come in; they are huge. I have to find a volunteer to dig it into the soil. That way, I can fill it full of excellent soil and make Jersey tomatoes cause they are lousy here.
Food has always been such an important thing we take for granted; it brings back old memories of how mom or grandma used to make it. Mine is how my father used to bring the bulldozer home and tear down the forest in our back yard to make 1/2 acre garden. It gave him much joy to hand bushels of crops to neighbors. It’s now part of a shopping center.
There nothing like freshly grown food to bring the family together, I know that some dread the holidays coming up, but think if you lost that someone how it would affect you? Relish in the joy that you have a family to go home too. My family is 898 miles away. Yesterday, on Thanksgiving, we put together a smoker grill combo and smoke three racks ribs. It would have been better with family.
Thank you, kitty, for all the beautiful things you have done to make our website more delightful! 🌸🥰💋JD
