“Here we are again – in the aftermath of another terrible, inexplicably shocking and painful tragedy. This time – in Las Vegas."(where 59 have died and over 500 people are wounded on Oct. 2nd 2017)
“It’s too much to even process. All these devastated families who now have to live with this pain forever because one person with a violent and insane voice in his head managed to stockpile a collection of high-powered rifles – and used them to shoot people.”
“The House of Representatives will be voting on a piece of legislation this week. It’s a bill to legalize the sale of silencers. For guns. This is what they’re working on. We have a major problem with gun violence in this country – and I guess they don’t care.”
I don't know what else to do besides sign petitions, pray and love on my community.
Sign this petition to tell Members of Congress to:
1. Vote no on H.R. 3668, the SHARE Act that would gut long-standing regulations on silencers and loosen restrictions on armor piercing bullets.
2. Persons on the 'no fly list' being unable to purchase guns full stop.
3. Stricter background checks and monitoring/documentation of gun owners to gun restrictions for mentally diagnosed persons.
I hope this changes the conversation in the senate from promoting more accessibility to guns to stricture, more controlled measures.
For the sake of my future children and my fellow Americans children and loved ones please sign the petition.

This is 89 year old Ann, my mum’s best friend at Kemp Lodge Nursing Home, where they and 27 other vulnerable residents have been told they must vacate their home in the New Year.
Ann is worried that she won’t survive the ordeal and has pleaded to stay; “If they close our home many of us won’t be here next year."
Two of our residents have already been moved three times because of closures. Care homes across the country are closing down at an alarming rate with numbers soaring to 148 last year. Figures show that 58 councils have seen residential and nursing homes go out business within a six month period.
I started this petition to save Kemp Lodge and to ask CIC (the charity that owns the Home) to work with the Local Authority in order to seek alternative solutions to closure. Our campaign group is convinced that with the right approach a new owner can be found.
My mum has dementia and it took a long time for her to settle into Kemp Lodge. It was extremely distressing watching her struggle to adapt but now she is happy surrounded by friends like Ann. Maintaining a familiar environment and routine is a vital part of dementia care and even minor changes cause immense confusion and anxiety.
When relatives are told a care home is no longer financially viable it leaves them devastated and heartbroken knowing their loved ones will suffer as a result. Staff are equally distressed at being separated from those for whom they genuinely care.
We call on the CEO and the Trustees of the charity (CIC) that run the home to reverse this critical decision and find a way of keeping these vulnerable elderly people in their home.
This could be your loved one. Please sign our petition and help put pressure on the key decision makers to find a feasible and sustainable plan to keep Kemp Lodge care home open
Together we can stop this happening
This recent BBC interview featuring two of the affected families highlights the human cost of this decision.

Petition to President Cyril Ramaphosa, Parliament of South Africa
In Sierra Leone the president declared 200 rapes for a year a state of emergency.
South Africa’s murders against women are currently around 3000 per year, whilst sexual offenses against women are at 50 000 per year.
Signing this petition will make our government realise that we are no longer tolerating this. Gender based violence needs to be discussed and addressed from the state level due to our society’s embedded violence against women. We need measures in place that will aim to eradicate violence against women, rid our society of toxic patriarchal values and ensure gender justice.
SAWFB has come up with great solutions that the government should have ensured years ago! Please find their suggestions here: https://www.sawomenfb.co.za/petition/16-promises-mr-president & don’t forget to sign their petition too!
Please Note: Donations via Change.org goes to advertising this petition. I do not personally receive any of the money nor do I benefit in any shape or form from this petition. I've merely created this in memory of all the women, children who've died from GBV - an issue that is threatening the livelihood of many South Africans as we speak. Read more
There are huge gaps in our current education system that highlights the need to understand the British Empire and colonialism. Without this the underlying and institutionalised racism will always remain. A substantial shift is now needed.
The national curriculum says young people are to learn about “how Britain has influenced and been influenced by the wider world”. This should include the communities that were colonised.
Why does this matter? As it is ignored in the curriculum, many children grow up with an internal version of events that has been relayed through families, this can be emotional, painful and as a result they carry unknown revenge and anger within. They are inheriting internal trauma.
By teaching about immigration Children will have empathy for the challenges that some migrants faced, recognise that for many it was a positive decision that was mutually beneficial for both migrant and host communities.
The immigration policies introduced from the 1960s onward were designed to make it more difficult for people of colour to come to this country, and we’d examine the forms of resistance that came with this as both go hand in hand.
It is also true that some teachers avoid topics they deem controversial, for this weak reason thousands of young people might be leaving school without any knowledge of this significant period of British history.
Without the tools of education, children won’t be able to understand the history of their own native country and the lasting impacts of the empire, the good and the bad. Understanding your history can help you to shape and make sense of the world. It’s a big part of character building, identity and an essential life skill that not all have.To see change we have to be the change, lets start with the schools and our future generation.Read more

Petition to Narendra Singh Tomar, Home Minister, Prime Minister's Office
I belong to the family of farmers who through generations have served the nation. With roots in a village near ludhiana, my grandfather as well as my forefathers have worked hard in the fields day and night to produce food for the country. But it upsets me to see that India's once-worshipped hero, the food-producing farmer, is under attack.
Thousands of farmers from Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh are upset about the new farm laws passed by the government. They fear they are being left at the mercy of big corporates which needs to be addressed by the government of India.
They were marching as a sign of their constitutional right to protest but they were met mid-way with water cannons, lathis and tear gas. Trenches were dug on highways to stop them from reaching the capital. Ironically this happened on 26th November, our Constitution Day.
The video of a young farmer climbing atop a water cannon to turn it off has gone viral. The ice-cold water was being used to stop protesting farmers from marching to Delhi. The image against the backdrop of COVID-19 and winter sent chills down the spines of the entire nation. To top this all, the young farmer, Navdeep Singh who bravely turned off the water canon has been now booked for attempt to murder. All this has to stop!
Authorities could have avoided all this through a peaceful dialogue which is being demanded by the protesting farmers from the very first day. Please sign my petition to bring the government’s attention towards the much needed peaceful dialogue, establishment of grievance redressal mechanism along with the inclusion of the MSP clause in writing by the government. Also, all farmers forcefully arrested and booked should be released and acquitted. Sign my petition asking the government to drop all charges against Navdeep.I appeal for a peaceful dialogue, which farmers had been asking for from the very first day.Read more
