Here are some mum hacks that all mothers can use when your little one gets sickly, with a flu, tummy ache or just to keep them busy at the doctor’s!
Standing Up Against Racism
Our social media hero today is Kamila Trent who stood up against a white lady at a store. The lady verbally assaulted 2 Hispanic women for speaking Spanish as they stood frozen lacking of words. Hundreds of people have flocked to her Facebook page to thank her for her courage.
The video posted on twitter has been retweeted so many times and it will make you cry.
Stand up for the voiceless.
Stand up against tribalism, racism, misogyny, bigotry, islamophobia, homophobia or any other kind of oppression.
2 Hispanic women were approached and verbally assaulted by a racist white lady for speaking Spanish in store.
Another white woman who saw and heard this happening immediately stepped in to defend them.

This week in Leadership, Swiss President Alain Berset has been trending for reading his notes on the pavement in NYC during the UNGA assembly . Africans and Kenyans in particular feeling that we need leaders who can live minimally. Can you find a Kenyan MCA, let alone a governor do this? Interesting.
