All Teachers In Ghana Must Take This Message Very Serious

A young man saw his primary school teacher at a wedding ceremony.

He went to greet him with all respect and admiration!!

He said to him:

“Can you still recognize me Sir?’

‘I don’t think so!!’, said the Teacher, ‘could you please remind me how we met?’

The student recounted:

“I was your Student in the 3rd Grade, I stole a Wrist watch belonging to my then classmate because it was unique and fascinating.

My Classmate came to you crying that his Wrist Watch had been stolen and you ordered all Students in the class to stand on a straight line, facing the wall with our hands up and our eyes closed so you could check our pockets.

At this point, I became jittery and terrified of the outcome of the search. The shame I will face after other Students discovered that I stole the Watch, the opinions my Teachers will form about me, the thought of being named a ‘ thief’ till I leave the School and my Parents’ reaction when they get to know about my action.

All these thoughts flowing across my heart, when suddenly it was my turn to be checked. I felt your hand slipped into my pocket and you brought out the Watch. I was gripped with fear, expecting the worse to be announced. I was surprised I didn’t hear anything, but Sir, you continued searching other Students’ pockets till you got to the last person.

When the search was over, you asked us to open our eyes and sit on our Chairs. I was afraid to sit because I was thinking you will call me out soon after everyone was seated.

But to my amazement, you showed the watch to the class, gave it to the owner and you never mentioned the name of the one who stole the watch. You didn’t say a word to me, and you never mentioned the story to anyone.

Throughout my stay in the school, no Teacher or Student knew what happened. This incident naturally taught me a great lesson and I resolved in my heart never to get myself involved in taking whatever is not mine.

I thought to myself, you saved my dignity.”

“Do you remember the story now Sir? You can’t simply forget this story Sir!!”

The teacher replied, ‘ I vividly remember the story that I found the Watch in a pocket but i did not know in whose pocket the stolen Watch was found that day because I searched your pockets while I also had my eyes closed.”

In life, we need wisdom for everything we do. As Parents, Teachers, Pastors, Leaders etc… we should be able to close our eyes to some things. Not all misbehavior require punishment. Some will need encouragement, some mentoring and some monitoring.

 

Be a Leader who impacts, not one who shatters.

God bless you soo much. I hope you found this message helpful.

HIV-AIDS, Cancer and other dangerous chronic diseases associated with LGBT People – ghanapublisher.com

The LGBT group in Ghana organized a fundraising which was attended by several diplomats including the Australian High Commissioner who pledged to support the group.

After the organization, tension has mounted in the country with a lot of opinion leaders advocating against LGBT in the country (Ghana).

An official notice cited by our news desk indicated the president of Ghana ordered the closure of the LGBT office with immediate effect.

Aside the evil tag against the act, there are a lot of dangerous chronic health implication with people who involve themselves in the LGBT.

A lot of LGBT health research funding and public attention still goes to AIDS.

But the LGBT community also experiences higher rates of other less visible health issues, like high blood pressure and earlier onset of disabilities, according to a recent Kaiser Family Foundation Research report.

On top of that, LGBT adults face more challenges in getting healthcare.

Stress and anxiety that’s fueled by discrimination are the likely culprits, say many experts.

These stresses can occur on many fronts, such as hearing about constant LGBT legal battles, workplace discrimination, or being denied healthcare.

“There is minority stress,” Gilbert Gonzales, assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine, told Health-line. “And it’s above the everyday stress. There’s also a lot of variation within the LGBT community.”

Another studyNTrusted Source of over 68,000 American adults found that lesbian, gay, and bisexual adults drank and smoked more heavily than heterosexual adults.

Gonzales, who co-authored the study, describes smoking and drinking as a “coping mechanism” for dealing with discrimination. “It could be drowning feelings by self-medicating,” he said.

Stress and anxiety are indeed linked to poor health outcomes, Carrie Henning-Smith, a research associate at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and who also co-authored the report, told Healthline.

“And we need to be concerned about it,” she said. “Homophobia is alive and well.”

As the federal government begins collecting more health data on sexual orientation, these disparities are finally coming to light, experts noted.

Bisexual people face the most health issues

Peeling away the health differences within the LGBT community is revealing, too.

For example, lesbian — and especially bisexual — women are more likely to be overweight than heterosexual women.

“And being overweight is a big risk factor for chronic diseases,” said Gonzalez.

Lesbian and bisexual women are also more likely to receive diagnoses with some cancers as well as higher rates of cardiovascular disease, according to the Kaiser Foundation report.

But bisexual people reported the poorest overall health.

They’re less likely to describe their health as excellent and had higher levels of distress. This group was also the least likely to be insured and also avoided getting medical care in the past year due to cost.

“Bisexuals do have the highest health risks,” said Henning-Smith, who passionately believes that all people should have a chance to have a healthy life. “One theory is that they’re a minority within a minority.”

Gay men can suffer from little-discussed health issues too, such as eating disorders fueled by body image.

According to studies, gay men were seven times more likely to report binging and 12 times more likely to report purging than heterosexual men.

Transgender college students are five times more likely to have an eating disorder than their peers.

And binge eating has serious side effects, such as cardiovascular disease, high blood pressure, and diabetes.

“Binging can also lead to social isolation,” Dr. Stephanie Setliff, medical director at the Eating Recovery Center in Dallas, told Healthline, as feelings of shame and guilt arise.

Finally, older members of the LGBT community face mounting health issues as they age.

According to a University of Washington study that examined health conditions among LGB adults over 50, lesbian and bisexual women are more likely to have chronic health conditions than heterosexual women.

These health conditions include strokes, heart attacks, and asthma.

“This is a population that isn’t getting the attention it deserves,” said Karen Fredriksen-Goldsen, director of the Health Generations Hartford Center of Excellence at the University of Washington, in a press release about the study. “Lesbian and bisexual women tend to be more invisible.”

Aging gay men, lesbians, and bisexual people also usually lack family support and end up living alone.

They report higher rates of mental distress and isolation, according to a policy brief by the UCLA Center for Health Policy Research.

However, when moving into nursing homes, elder abuse is rampant, too.

According to surveys, 43 percent of LGBTQ seniors have either been abused by caretakers or witnessed abuse, such as being evicted from long-term care facilities.

“This abuse is a hard one,” said Gonzales. “When health deteriorates, some will enter nursing homes. Often, that process leads them to go back into the closet.”
