Women from childhood are taught too much fear, a control issue for sure thought up by some male and this doubled down by his female parental counterpart.
Some people may call me a male feminist but we need more effort to promote basic human values, human compassion, human affection and in that respect, females have more sensitivity for others' pain and suffering.
So they need not fear, for as they step forward in life they will find; that they are stronger than the sum of their FEAR!
In 2010 September, the Dalai Lama said something that ricocheted around the globe. He said that he is like me a feminist and he opined that Western Women will save the world.
The Dalai Lama, like his great friend Archbishop Desmond Tutu, does not mince words when it comes to women. He has said on numerous occasions that he inherited his prodigious compassion from his mother. He believes that women, with their nurturing instinct, are naturally more compassionate. He wants to see more female ministers of defence, and is delighted that Spain has one. If wars are a fact of life, then it would be better if women were in charge, according to him, since they are more likely to empathize with those who suffer during conflicts.
Bullies and women abusers are in a small percentage born and I mean very small.
The majority of these abusive males are taught to disrespect women from birth and it has to stop!
Women also have a few non wall flowers amongst them too and are basically stink weeds, again also due to teaching of a poor parental figure.  This is a small percentage for in my life, what I have become and all that I am would never have happened without my late wife Joyce.
Plus the 600 females for 28 years and other women which I have had the pleasure to meet and influence me.
Which I have come to a point now in these last decades of my life; which I have become far more comfortable around women than men. For I truly, I believe that behind every man there's a Great Woman!
The photo collage link above that is titled “A WOMANS EQUALITY” by Sir Richard. These photos consist of some of other photographer’s captures of The Beauty of Women and my attempt of obtaining images of the many sorts of women that I could put together. To all of them I say; “Thank You” for allowing me to share your good work. Some photos are mine and in all of these photos, there are actual friends of mine, daughters and granddaughters who all share “A WOMANS EQUALITY”.

All my Lovin,

With 7 Billion People on this planet.
As my wife Joyce has been two years gone, to our LORD.
What I'd give to be held by a woman such as she, just but once again.
Sadly this is not to be.
As I am so very, very, alone…
Not even one such as she and 7 Billion People on this planet?
I might as well be a Martian!
Even with 7 Billion People on this planet…

Have you ever seen the aftermath of a suicide?
Well I have from when I was 12, where I had to bind up the wrists of an adult with dish towels, to the suicide of a young boy that we all took to bullying as a daily norm and his splatter on the garage wall from a shot gun stayed there for years.
To a young woman who dove off the barracks building in the Armed Forces one night landing on her head right in front of me and which still haunts me to this day!
At work, one woman dove off a building next door but my brain could not comprehend what was falling, so I counted the floors she past each one. Only to figure what was happening upon that persons landing.
To coworkers or friends, even a Doctor who one day seemed just fine and after the weekend I came back to work or see them to find out that they were dead. You wonder if there was more that you could have done, or why you did not do something, anything!

The one Lady whom was the dearest Lady in all of my life, came to my house one night because I was her “Best Friend”.  I must have given off an air of safety, for she even brought 2 of her kids.
The third was at relatives home and my Lady was driven to my home by a sister in-law and a sister.
What was happening was that her husband was threatening her and the rest of his family with a possible murder and or I thought suicide.
Happily they were not around when he finally cried out with his last violent solution.
Then killed himself but I saved the rest though as he rose to Saint Hood through the years for some reason. The more I tried to save my Lady the harder and harder it became, until she too past due to illness. It now sort of seems to me, that her death was just meant to be and I only just postponed the inevitable. Then again, she did have a life and was “LOVED” by me.

During the reign of Saddam Hussein he used to pay $50,000 U.S. to any Palestinian who would martyr himself by blowing himself up in Israel. Palestinian parents usually had up to 6 kids and no prospects of financial improvement. What was one son or daughter? After all they would be martyred and venerated and financially things would improve thanks to Saddam.  
One day while I was at home and watching the TV News, they were filming at a restaurant in Tel Aviv.
What happened was a 20-year-old Palestinian lad entered the restaurant and detonated a vest wired with C4 explosives. The shock wave knocked many flat, blew out windows every which way.
The smoke so thick that it looked like one was in murky water but as it cleared.
Inside a film crew found a nightmare with bloody parts of people everywhere.
You could even tell where the Palestinian lad was standing when his vest blew.
It was like a perfect circle of death for there was almost nothing left of the people closest to him. For the people closest to this circle were blown to pieces and I was surprised I could see all of this?
The closer they were to the bomber, the more horrific the effect!

This is the same with every suicide that I have ever come across, every single one!
Suicide is really just an act of terror perpetrated against everyone who's ever known you, everyone who's ever loved you and everyone whom in the future you would have loved.
The people closest to you, the ones who cherish you, are the ones who suffer the most pain. They are most damaged from your suicide bomb circle of death, which you detonated through or by, whatever means. I need not go into these ways, as the means are usually the end.
For since 12 years old I have always asked myself, why would a person do that?
Why would you do that to people who love you? People say that they I had no choice and or it was a cry for help but you cannot help someone who is already dead.
I know as I did CPR on my Lady over and over frantically and being that I am not JESUS or an Apostle, I failed just as the EMT’s.
But now with regards to suicide, I don’t believe that there is “NO CHOICE”.  For in my grief I too considered committing my own suicide very, very seriously!
Then I found that there's always a choice!
For this is why I wrote this; “AS SUICIDE HAS TO BE TALKED ABOUT – & NOW!”

“I only want to see you bathing in the purple rain
I never wanted to be your weekend lover
I only wanted to be some kind of friend
Baby I could never steal you from another
It's such a shame our friendship had to end.
Purple rain, Purple rain”

T.S. Eliot didn’t know how right he was when he wrote, “April is the cruellest month.” It’s not exactly what Eliot intended, but there's a literal truth to the line.
Over the last 150 years, there have been an unusual number of natural and man-made catastrophes occurring within the month of April, coincidence???
Here are but just a few:

April 20th 1889 - First of all, Hitler's birthday.
April 4, 1968 - Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination.
April 5, 1986 - A bomb exploded at a popular discotheque West Berlin, killing two U.S. soldiers and a Turkish woman.
April 6, 1917 - The U.S. entered WW1.
April 6, 1994 - The beginning of genocide in Rwanda.
April 7, 1712 - In New York City, 27 black slaves rebelled, shooting nine whites as they attempted to put out a fire started by the slaves. The state militia was called out to capture the rebels. Twenty one of the slaves were executed and six committed suicide.
April 9-12, 1917 The Canadian Battle for of Vimy Ridge WW1.
April 10, 1942 - During World War II in the Pacific, the Bataan Death March began.
April 12, 1861 - The Civil War and American Revolution April 19, 1775 both started in April. Though much loss of life, the change these Wars brought were very much needed.
April 12, 1945 - President Franklin D. Roosevelt died.
April 11th to 17th, 1970 – Apollo 13.
April 14, 1865 – President Lincoln’s assassination.

April 15, 2013 - Boston Marathon bombings. 
April 15, 1912 - Sinking of the RMS Titanic..
April 15, 1927 - Great Mississippi River Flood.
April 16, 2007 - Virginia Tech shooting.

April 17, 2013 - Texas fertilizer plant explosion.
April 17, 1961 - A U.S.-backed attempt to overthrow Premier Fidel Castro of Cuba failed disastrously in what became known as the Bay of Pigs fiasco.
April 18, 1906 - San Francisco earthquake.
April 18, 1942 - The first air raid on mainland Japan during World War II occurred as General James Doolittle led a squadron of B-25 bombers taking off from the carrier Hornet to bomb Tokyo and three other cities. Damage was minimal, but the raid boosted Allied morale following years of unchecked Japanese military advances.
April 19, 1943 - Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto staged an armed revolt against Nazi SS troops attempting to forcibly deport them to death camps.
April 19, 1995 - Oklahoma bombing.
April 19, 1993 - Waco Texas siege.
April 19, 1989 - Forty-seven U.S. sailors were killed by an explosion in a gun turret on the USS Iowa during gunnery exercises in the waters off Puerto Rico.
April 20, 1914 - Miners in Ludlow, Colorado, were attacked by National Guardsmen paid by the mining company.
April 20, 2007 - Johnson Space Center Shooting.
April 20 2010 - The Deep-water Horizon drilling rig explodes.
April 20, 1999 - Columbine Colorado shooting.
April 23, 1987 - L’Ambiance Plaza collapse in Bridgeport, Connecticut.
April 24, 1915 - In Asia Minor during World War I, the first modern-era genocide began with the deportation of Armenians, estimates vary from 800,000 to over 2,000,000 Armenians murdered.
April 26, 1986 - Chernobyl disaster Ukraine.
April 26, 1937 - During the Spanish Civil War, the ancient town of Guernica was attacked by German warplanes. After destroying the town in a three hour bombing raid, the planes machine-gunned fleeing civilians.
April 27, 1865 - On the Mississippi River, the worst steamship disaster in U.S. history occurred as an explosion aboard the Sultana killed nearly 2,000 passengers, mostly Union soldiers who had been prisoners of war and were returning home.

So, because it negatively affected many millions of people from 1923 to 1945, I started with Adolph Hitler’s birthday which again on April 20, 1889 and I believe all this horror revolves around.
There are probably other events that would qualify, if you look closely enough.
Of course, it’s true that two or three of the violent instances above are related, with one lunatic or set of lunatics paying macabre “tribute” to their beloved predecessors.
In any case for T.S. Eliot, April remains a very “cruel” month and this also true in my opinion.
Call it all Coincidence, Fate, Portent?
You be the judge…
