Morgan (25) carried her daughter Hadlie (3) on an adventure

À seulement 25 ans, Morgan Brechler sait ce qu’elle veut pour elle… et surtout pour sa fille !

La jeune américaine, originaire de Phoenix (Arizona), a déjà exploré de nombreux parcs nationaux, accompagnée de sa petite Hadlie, 3 ans.

Camper, escalader, respirer, observer les paysages, voilà comment le duo d’aventurières voit la vie. Ouvrez grand les yeux…

Pour beaucoup de gens, faire de la randonnée, des activités extrêmes et dormir dans une tente ou dans une camionnette avec leur enfant, ce serait mission impossible.

Mais pour Morgan Brechler, c’est l’occasion de passer des moments inoubliables entre mère et fille, loin du stress, des écrans et de la technologie.

« En ce qui concerne les parcs nationaux, nous avons déjà fait le Grand Canyon et Joshua Tree, en Californie. Nous sommes aussi allées au Mexique et à Hawaï » a déclaré la jeune maman. (Who is paying for all that fun?)

Morgan, qui aime se décrire comme une « groupie de la nature », porte sa fille sur le dos quand cette dernière commence à fatiguer.

Ensuite, elles grimpent le long de grandes parois de pierre, équipées de cordes et de harnais de sécurité. Une discipline à laquelle Hadlie s’entraîne depuis qu’elle n’a que quelques mois.

En effet, elle a commencé sa formation de l’escalade quand elle avait 1 an et demi. Autant vous dire que du haut de ses 3 ans, elle a déjà pas mal d’expérience !

« Quand elle était toute petite, elle a commencé par des tout petits murs en indoor, des choses très faciles. Aujourd’hui, elle a bien progressé et s’en sort très bien » confie sa maman.

Si Morgan a choisi un mode de vie différent pour elle et sa fille durant les week-ends, c’est qu’elle a ses raisons :

« C’est important d’être proche de la nature, on se perd tellement dans la technologie. Je veux qu’Hadlie apprécie la vie et qu’elle sache que le meilleur moyen d’apprendre et de grandir est de connaître Mère Nature. Ici, il n’y a pas d’artifice, tout est vrai, tout est authentique. J’aime créer tous ces souvenirs avec elle, on est ensemble et en plein air, c’est génial ! »

Pendant la semaine, Morgan vit en alternance : comprenez deux jours à étudier l’agriculture durable à la fac et trois jours à travailler dans un cabinet de paysagistes et d’architectes. Le reste de son temps, elle le passe avec Hadlie, à préparer leurs escapades du week-end.

Depuis qu’elle voyage avec sa fille sur le dos, la jeune femme a créé un Instagram, une façon de garder des souvenirs et de partager leurs aventures avec le monde entier.

Et elle a tapé dans l’œil de fans de voyages ! En effet, sur le célèbre réseau social, cette mère est déjà suivie par plus de 52 000 fans. Les photos sont particulièrement belles, et Hadlie est vraiment trop mignonne.

L’histoire de cette maman et de sa fille prouve bien qu’il ne faut pas se préoccuper du regard des autres et n’écouter que son cœur !

Et surtout, que la vie est trop courte pour ne pas en profiter à fond, et se trouver constamment des excuses… Alors allez-y, tentez vous aussi l’expérience !

When Israel’s occupation of Palestinian territory will ends?

We need peace in the Middle-East

In the last 2 weeks, 1,400 Palestinian youth have been injured by live bullets. And 30 were shot dead.

The current escalation in violence did not start with the killing of two Israeli settlers, it started a long while ago and has been going on for years.

Every day Palestinians are killed, wounded, arrested.

(Everyday, Israel administratively detains a dozen of Palestinian youth in order to subjugate the youth).

Every day colonialism advances, the siege on our people in Gaza continues, oppression persists.

As many today want us to be overwhelmed by the potential consequences of a new spiral of violence, I will plead, as I did in 2002, to deal with its root causes: the denial of Palestinian freedom.

Some have suggested the reason why a peace deal could not be reached was President Yasser Arafat’s unwillingness or President Mahmoud Abbas’s inability, but both of them were ready and able to sign a peace agreement.

The real problem is that Israel has chosen occupation over peace, and used negotiations as a smokescreen to advance its colonial project.

Every government across the globe knows this simple fact and yet so many of them pretend that returning to the failed recipes of the past could achieve freedom and peace. Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

We have tried to be patient, but the international community has failed us.
Freedom for Palestinian people is long overdue
http://www.theguardian.com|By Marwan Barghouti

There can be no negotiations without a clear Israeli commitment to:

1. fully withdraw from the Palestinian territory it occupied in 1967, including East Jerusalem;

2.  a complete end to all colonial policies;

3.  a recognition of the inalienable rights of the Palestinian people including their right to self-determination and return; and

4. the release of all Palestinian prisoners.

We cannot coexist with the occupation, and we will not surrender to it.

We were called upon to be patient, and we were, giving chance after chance to reach a peace agreement.

Maybe it is useful to remind the world that our dispossession, forced exile and transfer, and oppression have now lasted for nearly 70 years.

We are the only item (and entity) to have stood on the UN’s agenda since its inception.

We were told that by resorting to peaceful means and to diplomatic channels we would garner the support of the international community to end the occupation.

And yet, as in 1999 at the close of the interim period, that community failed yet again to undertake any meaningful steps, neither setting up an international framework to implement international law and UN resolutions, nor enacting measures to ensure accountability, including boycott, divestment and sanctions, which played a crucial role in ridding the world of the apartheid regime.

So, in the absence of international action to end Israeli occupation and impunity or even provide protection, what are we asked to do?

Stand by and wait for the next Palestinian family to be burned, for the next Palestinian child to be killed or arrested, for the next settlement to be built? The entire world knows that Jerusalem is the flame that can inspire peace and ignite war.

Why then does the world stand still while the Israeli attacks against the Palestinian people in the city and in Muslim and Christian holy sites, notably Al-Haram al-Sharif, continue unabated?

Israel’s actions and crimes not only destroy the two-state solution on 1967 borders and violate international law, they threaten to transform a solvable political conflict into a never-ending religious war that will undermine stability in a region already experiencing unprecedented turmoil.

No people on the globe would accept to coexist with oppression.

By nature, humans yearn for freedom, struggle for freedom, sacrifice for freedom, and the freedom of the Palestinian people is long overdue. During the first intifada, the Israeli government launched a “break their bones to break their will” policy, but for generation after generation the Palestinian people have proven their will is unbreakable and needs not to be tested.

This new Palestinian generation has not awaited reconciliation talks to embody a national unity that political parties have failed to achieve, but has risen above political divides and geographic fragmentation.

It has not awaited instructions to uphold its right, and its duty, to resist this occupation. It is doing so unarmed, while being confronted by one of the biggest military powers in the world.

And yet, we remain convinced that freedom and dignity shall triumph, and we shall overcome. The flag that we raised with pride at the UN will one day fly over the walls of the old city of Jerusalem to signal our independence.

I joined the struggle for Palestinian independence 40 years ago, and was first imprisoned at the age of 15.

This did not prevent me from pleading for peace in accordance with international law and UN resolutions. But Israel, the occupying power, has methodically destroyed this perspective year after year.

I have spent 20 years of my life in Israeli jails, including the past 13 years, and these years have made me even more certain of this unalterable truth:

the last day of occupation will be the first day of peace.

Those who seek the latter need to act, and act now, to precipitate the former.
