Since today is International Men’s Day, I celebrate five (5) of my favourite men characters.
1.Martin Luther King Jr. in Martin Luther King by Rob Lloyd Jones
Martin Luther King Jr. died fighting against segregation and discrimination of black people. One of the most remarkable selfless characters I have read in Literature, one that many attest to out of Literature. Even when his family were almost killed and he lose his home, he still called out for “Love,” he shouted, “I want you to love our enemies. We can’t let their hate stop us.” How many of us can truly utter those words to the people who wants us dead?

“Calls for an International Men’s Day have been noted since at least the 1960’s when it was reported that “Many men have been agitating privately to make Feb 23 International Men’s Day, the equivalent of March 8, which is International Women’s day” (New York Times, Feb 24 1969).
Since that time there have been persistent international calls for the creation of an IMD, occasionally in the form of rhetorical questions – “Why do women have an international celebration and not men?” and more commonly in the form of statements like “Men’s contributions and concerns deserve a day of recognition in their own right” i.e. not merely by analogy with International Women’s Day.”
Since yesterday the 19th of November was International Mens Day and today is Universal Children’s Day I would like to shout all the men out there especially the daddies making time for their babies. I leave you with a video above showing daddies and their babies sharing funny and happy moments. Enjoy 🙂
This weekend make the men and the kids in your life feel extra special.
A Poem For Universal Children’s Day
Let them giggle, let them sing, let them play hide and seek.
Feed them properly but a few snacks will not hurt.
Please do not use the candy to bribe them into silence
because of your indecent touch.
I wish all those fingers would rotten and fall off for such filthy
actions. You have corrupted their innocence creating monsters lurking to destroy from the inside out.
Let their vivid imagination grow, teach them manners but do not shut them up every time the dear child wants to tell you a story.
