They visited the VA hospital Saturday.American Legion Post 70 in Troy and its Auxiliary have established a longtime Christmas tradition of helping make Christmas merry and bright for the veterans at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Tuskegee.Each year, members of Post 70 and its Auxiliary travel to the VA hospital with Christmas bags for the veterans. On Saturday, they delivered 200 gift bags to the veterans and also took items especially for use in the therapy ward.The veterans’ gift bags included a variety of items including knit caps, blankets, baseball caps, back brushes and scratchers and lotions and hygiene products. Henderson had the opportunity to sit with and console a veteran and was able to use the experience as a teachable moment.“The young people remarked at the difference a caring gesture can make,” Henderson said. “We are all humans and want to be treated like we are important and that our lives matter. That’s what I told the students and I think they understood. Several of the students left the hospital with tears in their eyes. I think they will have a different way of looking at our veterans now and a greater appreciation for them.”Hale also said the veterans were encouraged and inspired by the visit. Her daughter, Tabitha, who is a licensed attorney, was along with her service dog.“Dennis Griffith, Post 70, shared Tabitha’s story with the veterans,” Hale said. “He told them that Tabitha was born with her disability but she never let it stop her and that their lives don’t have stop because they are in the hospital – that they can still go forward. They seemed to find his words encouraging.”Eighteen ladies affiliated with or supportive of Post 70 and its Auxiliary participated in the activities at the VA hospital Saturday.“We all came away with a deeper appreciation for our veterans and a desire to do more,” Hale said. “We appreciate all of those who support our poppy sale each year and our other fundraisers. They are all a part of what we do for our veterans at Christmastime and throughout the year.” Book Nook to reopen By The Penny Hoarder Print Article You Might Like Humane Society’s 2016 Pet Photo Calendars for sale The Humane Society of Pike County’s 2016 Pet Photo Calendars are hot off the press and available for sale just… read more “Susan Griffith had knitted beautiful knit caps and all of the veterans wanted them,” Hale said. “They are so appreciative of everything and it’s just a joy for us to be able to share Christmas with them.”As much as the veterans appreciate and enjoy the gift bags, they seem to enjoy having visitors even more, Hale said.“Cadets from the Pike County High School JROTC have been going with us for about six year and having young people around really brightens the day for the veterans,” Hale said. “This year, the PCHS choral group went along. They went up and down the halls singing Christmas carols. The choral director, Roy Hoobler, played the guitar for them and people came out of the rooms to hear them. It was wonderful experience for these cadets and choral members and the veterans.” Sponsored Contentlast_img read more

  • Australia’s top court recognises ‘neutral’ third gender

    first_imgNZ News 3 April 2014 Australia’s highest court on Wednesday recognised the existence of a third “non-specific” gender that is neither male nor female, in a landmark ruling campaigners said will help end years of discrimination.The High Court ruled that not everyone should be forced to identify as a man or woman when dealing with officials, saying some people could legitimately describe themselves as gender neutral.“The High Court… recognises that a person may be neither male nor female, and so permits the registration of a person’s sex as ‘non?specific’,” it said in a unanimous judgement.The decision ended a long legal battle by sexual equality campaigner Norrie to overturn a New South Wales state edict that gender is an inherently “binary” concept involving only men or women.“I’m overjoyed,” the Sydney-based activist said. “It’s been a long time from start to end but this has been a great outcome.“Maybe people will understand now that there’s more options than just the binary. So while an individual might be male or female, not all their friends might be and maybe they might be more accepting of that.”https://nz.news.yahoo.com/a/-/world/22320027/australias-top-court-recognises-gender-neutral-sex-category/#last_img read more
