Many times, I've read articles saying it's time to talk, mental health is important and every other recycled term relating to mental health. Honestly, every time I've agreed with them, we do need to talk, mental health IS important and every recycled term surrounding mental health stands.

Black Lives Do Matter

It's clear not all but a minority of these officers DO NOT LIKE Black people. Officers should be banned from using fire arms until further notice to prevent more incidents and deaths. It's time Black lives are valued and respected like any other human being. It could be your Mother, Father, Daughter, Sister, friend or close relative. Enough is enough.

In my own leadership journey, spirituality has been foundational. I was raised as a Christian Scientist and my upbringing in Asia and continuing travels around the world gave me a deep interest in, and appreciation for, the spiritual principles found in all religions.

Being Black and Brown in Britain

Racism, the point where power meets prejudice, is something we shy away from discussing in Britain, but it is a lived reality for millions on a day-to-day basis, a one-way stream of continued offense on varying scales.

Remarkably, this is the first biography about MLK made for the big screen. The film is about a very specific moment in the city of Selma, Alabama, when black civil rights activist Martin Luther King (MLK) life, had given his "I have a dream" speech and received the Nobel peace prize, but was still frustrated by the lack of genuine progress on civil rights.

The events in Missouri are a wake up call. The nation is not yet at peace. There is fear and conflict in our minds whose path always leads to destruction. When we transform this to peace and compassion the path leads to creativity and connection.

Fighting for Our Freedom to Be Healthy

What might be the basis for not accepting second class health? Perhaps because its as innate to our spiritual sense to feel health is natural as it is politically to demand equal rights. "In health there is freedom. Health is the first of all liberties," mused Swiss poet and philosopher Henri Frédéric Amiele.

The Dignity In Serving

From teachers, carers, nurses and doctors, street sweepers, sales assistants and the like, working in service is an exchange of energy as old as civilisation. Serving one another in some way is a natural human instinct that we all have inside of us and can deliver on daily basis through our individual talents.

World Leaders Gathering in South Africa to Celebrate the Life of Nelson Mandela Will Fail to See His Point

Dr Raj Persaud

The World Leaders gathering in South Africa to celebrate the life of Nelson Mandela are precisely the one group who have least interest in Nelson Mandela's true legacy - disobey the rules when they are wrong. His real message is in danger of being air-brushed out of history.

Mandela - What Now?

Mandela has passed, but his message lives on through all of us. Whenever we confront words, policies, ideas that seek to place us in a status of being apart, may we have the courage and imagination to stand up for our fellow travellers. What now? It's up to all of us.

The Dream Not Yet Fulfilled

I long for the day when Dr King's dream will be fulfilled. When it won't matter where you come from, or what you look like, or what language you speak. When the only thing that will matter about you is how you behave. When we will not think it odd to see a black or Asian MP on the front benches of Parliament. When colour will be irrelevant. But I suspect that that day is long off.
