      Obama was that leader, and he asked if he was too young?

      I think we're still looking for a leader, Obama did what he could, but as the first black man in America to be president, he faced the white lash that stopped what greater things he might have been able to bring.

      We need a clean win, and a clean story, do you know anyone that might fit that bill?

          সুচিঃ
          আসেন দাদা হাতটা ধরেন
          আমি আপনার সুচি,
          দুজন মিলে রোহিঙ্গাদের
          করবো কুচি কুচি।
          আপনে শুধু পাশে থাকেন
          নেইতো ওদের মাফ,
          দাদা চাইলে হতে পারেন
          আমার পোলার বাপ!
          দুজন মিলে মানবতার
          পাঁছায় দিব বাঁশ,
          বাঁশের উপর কাটবে জীবন
          ওদের বারোমাস।
          কেমন সাঁজা সাঁজলাম আমি
          দেখেন দাদা চেয়ে,
          বয়স বেশি কিন্তু দাদা
          আমি কোমল মেয়ে!
          দাদাঃ
          তোমার রুপে নেইতো যাদু
          আছে হিংস্র মুখ,
          তোমায় দেখে মাঝে মাঝে
          কাঁপে আমার বুক!
          আশার কথা, খুনি তুমি
          শুধুই মুসলমানের,
          এ দিক থেকে বন্ধু তুমি
          আমার প্রিয় প্রাণের।
          রক্ত ঝরে যখন দেখি
          রোহিঙ্গাদের মুখে,
          বুকটা আমার তোমার প্রেমে
          ভরে উঠে সুখে।
          খুনি হয়ে খুনির প্রেমে
          প্রেম জমবে ভারী,
          আসল পুরুষ আছি দাদা
          দেখবে কেমন পারি!
          সুচিঃ
          কি যে বলেন লজ্জা দিলেন
          আস্থা আমার ছিলো,
          বুকের মাঝে প্রেমের ঢেউয়ে
          হঠাৎ মোচড় দিলো!
          প্রাণের দাদা এবার আমায়
          নিজের করে নিন,
          বিনিময়ে মানুষ খুনের
          স্বিকৃতি টা দিন।
          নো-বাল প্রাপ্ত খুনি আমি
          শান্তির মনষকন্যা,
          দাদা আছেন ঝরবে দ্বিগুণ
          ওদের রক্তের বন্যা।
          দাদাঃ
          মুসলমানের রক্ত ঝরুক
          গো-মাতা থাক জিন্দা,
          রোহিঙ্গাদের আত্মরক্ষায়
          জানাই আমি নিন্দা।
          গুলি করে মারবে ওদের
          কোপে কোপে খন্ডিত,
          জ্যান্ত পুড়ে মারবে আবার
          ফাঁসির রায়ে দন্ডিত।
          ধর্ষণ করে মারতে হবে
          কোমল নারী পেলে,
          আমার চেয়ে পটু জানি
          তোমার দেশের ছেলে!
          সুচিঃ
          দাদার মনের আশা আমার
          পূরণ করা ফরজ,
          দাদার দেশের কোটি রুপি
          আমার আছে করজ।
          দাদার সাথে মিলে এবার
          মানবতার পিছে,
          আইক্কা ঢুলি বাঁশের বাগান
          দিবো ওদের খিঁচে।
          আমিঃ
          স্বপ্ন দেখো ইচ্ছে মত
          কর যতই সন্ধি,
          সময় হলে দুজন খুনি
          হবে ঠিকই বন্ধি।
          স্বপ্ন দেখতে বাঁধা কিসের?
          না হলে স্বপ্নদোষ!
          দোষের বোঝা নেয়না তো আর
          বেচারা নন্দঘোষ!
          দাদার সাথে ডাইনি সুচির
          কাবাব হবে চিতায়,
          এখন না হয় বোগল বাজাও
          ক্ষণিক সময় জিতায়।
          নাফ নদীটা সাক্ষী হবে
          সেদিন মোদের হয়ে,
          আজকে যারা হায় অসহায়
          যাচ্ছে সবই সঁয়ে।
          সালাহ্ উদ্দিন আল আইয়ুবি
          আর আরতুগ্রুল গাজী,
          জন্ম নিবে ঘরে ঘরে
          রাখবে জীবন বাজি।
          হাসি সুচি গুদি মুদি
          সবাই যাবি ভেসে,
          তোদের রক্তে আমরা যাবো
          জয়ের হাসি হেসে।
          অলিক স্বপ্ন ভাঙ্গবে সেদিন
          জাহান্নামে পুড়ে,
          চেয়ে দেখিস জান্নাতে ঐ
          রোহিঙ্গারা উড়ে। #collecte

              It seems that most of the art museums in and around the Houston area managed to keep art safe, but one was not so lucky.


              Along with being home to one of the most diverse populations in America, Houston and its surrounding areas also house a stunning accumulation of modern, contemporary and community-based art. How did museums throughout Houston and its surrounding area prepare for the Category 4 hurricane and the catastrophic flooding in its wake? And how are they dealing with, or preparing to deal with, its effects?

              BUYENLARGE VIA GETTY IMAGES


              Contemporary Arts Museum Houston

              “We have a wonderful crew who prepared the museum and continued to monitor it during the storm,” Christina Brungardt, the deputy director of the Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, wrote to HuffPost in an email. “The building was braced for flooding with water barriers and sandbags. In addition, our registrar’s team de-installed our downstairs exhibition and moved it to the upstairs space.”


              The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston

              . . .underwent a similar protocol for storm protection. “Our hurricane-preparedness team implemented all of our storm-planning measures to secure the buildings,” Mary Haus, the head of marketing and communications at the museum said.

              “These are protocols we have long had in place, including sandbags, stationing emergency water pumps, floodgate activation for the buildings and the stationing of a 24/7 emergency team on site at the main campus to monitor everything for the duration of the storm. That team includes engineers, art handlers, IT and other staff. As part of advance planning, works of art that were in a potentially vulnerable location, such as by a window or under a skylight, were moved as needed.”

              he Galveston Arts Center

              “We were preparing for an opening on Saturday, Aug. 26, featuring three Houston based artists ― Bradley Kerl, Angel Oloshove and Christopher Cascio,” Reese Darby, who does marketing for the center, wrote to HuffPost. “The decision had been made on Wednesday, Aug. 23, to start packing the art and moving it into storage upstairs.

              Project Row Houses, the Rothko Chapel and The Menil Collection

              “Since Friday, the Menil has maintained an around-the-clock security and maintenance presence at the museum making regular checks on our basements in the main building and Menil Drawing Institute construction site, and on the skylights in the main building and at the Cy Twombly Gallery,” Tommy Napier, assistant director of communications at the Menil, explained.

              “Periodic checks are being made at our other buildings, which include the Dan Flavin Installation at Richmond Hall and the Byzantine Fresco Chapel. We have done preventative sandbagging at buildings that require it. At this time, and thankfully, our buildings have not been impacted by the storm.

              Rockport Center for the Arts -was damaged

              . . . in a Facebook message, Luis Purón, the executive director of the Rockport Center for the Arts, located near Corpus Christi, shared it had suffered severe damage.

              From images I have been provided and third party accounts, it appears the building has sustained serious external damage,” Puron wrote.

              Marthe Cohn: An Unusual Spy

                  I had the distinct honor of meeting this woman tonight, Marthe Cohn, a French-Jewish woman who served as a spy for the allies behind Nazi lines during WWII. I told her that it wasn't every day you get a chance to meet a hero from one of the darkest periods in human history. She said that she was no hero, all the heros were dead, she only did her job as best she could.

                  I disagree with her on the heroism part, too many people don't try to do their jobs as best they can, and when those jobs are of such importance and danger, that's heroic.

                  Marthe Cohn's children, who have flown in from around the country to witness her moment of glory today, say she never told them what she did to earn one of France's highest military honors.

                  To them, Cohn, an 80-year-old Rancho Palos Verdes resident, is a strict but loving mother, fanatical about keeping the kitchen clean and over the moon about her granddaughter. She taught her two sons French and took them to visit Europe, but she never talked about her experiences as an intelligence officer in World War II.

                  Cohn, who is Jewish and lost a sister at Auschwitz, was 24 when she crept across a field, under barbed wire and into Nazi Germany to get vital information for the Allied advance in 1945.

                  "I always felt that people wouldn't believe me," Cohn said the other day at her home. "They would think it was tall tales."

                  In a ceremony at the Sofitel Hotel in Los Angeles this afternoon, however, the French consul to Los Angeles will award Cohn the Medaille Militaire, and tell the world about the role Cohn played in the "liberation of France," Commandant Olivier Saint-Leger, a military official, said in a telephone interview from Paris.

                  The relatively rare medal is awarded for outstanding military service and has gone to such luminaries as Winston Churchill and French generals since it was established in 1852.

                  Yo Jung Chen, France's vice consul in Los Angeles, said it is very unusual for such an honor to be given in the United States, but that Cohn is clearly deserving.

                  "She walked behind enemy lines during the war. It must have been very, very dangerous," he stated.

                  Cohn had never intended to become a spy, but French army officials found out in 1944 that the 4-foot, 11-inch nurse could speak German and asked her if she would work in intelligence.

                  "I had no idea what I was getting myself into," Cohn said. "I'm not a liar or an actor, but when your survival depends upon it. . . . I did it for what Germans had done to us."

                  According to French government documents and interviews with officials this week in Paris, Cohn assumed the identity of a German nurse searching for a missing fiance. She visited the German front lines in the closing days of the war, hobnobbed with SS officers and ascertained plans for the German army's retreat and counterattack in southern Germany.

                  Then she crawled back across the border and got the information to French intelligence in time.

                  "I have a sixth sense about danger," said Cohn, who now suffers from hearing loss and arthritis but is still active, working on her memoirs and refurbishing her bathroom. "It's why I'm still alive."

                  Even before she slipped behind German lines, Cohn and her family frequently found their lives in peril, as Jews in Nazi-occupied France.

                  Marthe Hoffnung grew up speaking German and French in the Lorraine region of France, which is close to the German border. In 1942, after her younger sister Stephanie was arrested and killed in Auschwitz, the rest of the family fled from German-occupied France to the southern territory controlled by the Vichy government.

                  Cohn entered nursing school, while her brothers joined the French resistance. Her fiance, who also fought in the French resistance, was shot to death by the Germans in 1943 in Paris. When France was liberated by Allied forces in 1944, Cohn joined the French army.

                  One afternoon, she remembered, a colonel asked her to answer his phones during lunch. He apologized that there was nothing for her to read because there were only German books in his office.

                  "I said, 'That's OK, I can read German,' " she said. "It's as simple as that, how your life can change," said Cohn. French intelligence officers were looking for women who spoke German to enter Germany.

                  After brief training, Cohn tried and failed 14 times to cross the border. On the morning of her 15th try, an intelligence officer drove her to a field near the Swiss border with Germany.

                  In her pockets, she carried papers identifying her as a German nurse, along with letters and a picture of a German soldier, who was allegedly her fiance, but who in fact was locked securely away in an Allied prison.

                  For the next three weeks, she traveled around southern Germany, collecting information, constantly afraid that she would be discovered. She befriended an ailing SS officer who fainted on the road. When he woke up and found Cohn tending him and heard her story of how she was searching for her fiance, he invited her to come to the German front lines to look for him.

                  A few weeks later, after Allied forces had entered southern Germany, Cohn met German soldiers in the road. In keeping with her role, she burst into a hysterical fit and said she was terrified by the Americans, and frantic about the fate of her fiance.

                  "They told me not to worry," she said. "And then they told me in precisely which section of the Black Forest the German army was waiting for the Allies. . . . That just goes to show you should never tell anyone anything, no matter how innocent they seem."

                  By bicycle and on foot, Cohn made her way to the Swiss border and got the information to French officials.

                  After the war, she served in Vietnam as a nurse with the French army. Her slain fiance had grown up there, and the two had always planned to return.

                  She returned home to pursue a career as a nurse, but in 1956, while studying in Geneva, she met an American medical student, Major L. Cohn, who was the roommate of a friend.

                  Within three years, they were married and living in the United States. Now both retired, they had worked together for years, he as an anesthesiologist and she as a nurse.

                  Why a medal 55 years later? French officials say that was partly because they lost track of her and partly because she never applied for the honor, as many do.

                  Four years ago, Cohn was in France and asked for her military records in an attempt to regain her French citizenship, which was revoked when she became a U.S. citizen. More recent laws allowed dual citizenship and Cohn figured her records would strengthen her case.

                  When archive officials saw her file of commendations, they urged her to apply for the Medaille Militaire. She did and it was approved. Cohn, whose relatives in France recently received the medal there and sent it to her for the official ceremony, said she never sought glory for her work.

                  "I think this award is long overdue," said her son Remi Cohn, who is visiting from Chicago for the ceremony. He said he never really asked his mother what she did during the war, and she never volunteered the information. Tales of how his family suffered persecution for being Jewish upset him too much, he said.

                  "I know her as one of the best mothers anyone could ever want and the more I find out about what she's been through and how much strength and will power it must have taken for her to go on with life, the more I appreciate what kind of mother she is."

                      A former Myspace website friend of mine, from a decade ago, painted a picture in honor of the late great Dick Gregory (RIP). Since I like them both as artist and humans I thought I would share her solar tribute to him on Yabberz.

                          I’ve spent a life time watching Robert De Niro on the big screen. Once Upon A Time in America is my favorite. But he sure was pretty when he was young. I’m looking forward to another 20 years.

                          Confederate Monuments. The Young Turks.

                          The Young Turks on confederate monuments. Thought this might add to the debate.. There are a few points of view on this. (Some bad language)

                          A monument to slavery and racism.

                          A memorial to those who died.

                          A work of art from a bygone era.
