Democracy’s Demise in Hong Kong China has eroded and nearly destroyed democracy in Hong Kong since taking control of the city from Britain in 1997. Beijing has cunningly manipulated a well-developed political and constitutional framework to undo, step by step, Hong Kong’s autonomy. Concepts such as civil liberties and the separation of powers, which people held dear under the relatively enlightened rule of the British, are being abandoned. Fairness and justice, the heart of democracy, are withering. The only way out for Hong Kong is to split from Beijing and form a new democratic state..... The system of checks and balances is being dismantled. The pillars of civil liberties and freedom of association are under assault. Only by splitting from China can Hong Kong have true democracy and freedom - Yau Wai Ching

The hardest thing to listen to , your instincts, you human personal intuition, always whispers. It never shouts. - Steven Spielberg

You may think your light is small, but it can make a huge difference in other people's lives. - unknown

Sometimes we give love to the wrong person, and we sit there and wonder, "how could I have given love to that person? They don't even deserve it," or "what a waste of time." But the thing is, you shouldn't think about it that way. You should think of the fact that you were able to give love, because if you are able to give it, that means you have it inside of you. It means that that is what makes you. And it's the same thing with everything else. It's the same thing with kindness, with honesty, with your ability to care about people. That shows who you are. Don't focus on the way that people abuse that. Don't focus on the way that people react to that. Focus on the fact that you have it within you, and that it makes you who you are. It makes you a beautiful person, a beautiful human being. So, before you sit there and say, "I wish I didn't give love", "I wish I didn't give kindness", "I wish I wasn't honest", be careful what you're wishing for. - Najwa Zebian

My Gabo is not even 4 yet.. haha.. !

Te scariest thing in the world is a five year old who knows all your secrets, and has an active imagination, and can speak in full sentences.

We worry too much about reading levels, potty training, and messy rooms and perhaps too little about living a happy life with our loved ones in the short time we have given with them. - Rebecca Eanes

If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse. - Jim Rohn

Children as as independent as you expect them to be. - Maria Montessori

Don't trade your authenticity for approval. - unknown

The secret in life is enjoying the passage of time. Instead of clutching onto the past or fearing for the future, experiment with letting go into the mystery of life. Float on the river of time, curious about its direction, open to its changing nature. you don't really know where it's going, so why not relaxed, and experienced the ride? - Elizabeth Lesser
When you're in a dark place, you sometimes tend to think you've been buried. Perhaps you 've been planted. BLOOM. - unknown

It is during the worst storms of your life that you will get to see the true color of the people who say that they care for you. - unknown
Always cherish your friends and treat them well, but Always make your significant other feel 10 times as special. - Some Greek guy in NYC

Making our significant others “FEEL” really special is super important. If we’re not giving and getting that feeling reciprocated then it’s probably a good sign we need to work harder on our relationship, have a talk with our partner about “US” or figure out if it’s better to start a new chapter separately. Starts with that great communication and honesty. Jason C.

“YOUR ABUSIVE PARTNER DOESN’T HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HIS ANGER; HE HAS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR ANGER.

One of the basic human rights he takes away from you is the right to be angry with him. No matter how badly he treats you, he believes that your voice shouldn’t rise and your blood shouldn’t boil. The privilege of rage is reserved for him alone. When your anger does jump out of you—as will happen to any abused woman from time to time—he is likely to try to jam it back down your throat as quickly as he can. Then he uses your anger against you to prove what an irrational person you are. Abuse can make you feel straitjacketed. You may develop physical or emotional reactions to swallowing your anger, such as depression, nightmares, emotional numbing, or eating and sleeping problems, which your partner may use as an excuse to belittle you further or make you feel crazy.” ― Lundy Bancroft, "Why Does He Do That?: Inside the Minds of Angry and Controlling Men"
