LOVE AND NATURE

Advertisements

Love becomes a flower bud
That demands the sun to rise to make it bloom
To order crystalline dew drops to fall to keep it fresh
To command the breezes to blow to spread the fragrance
To ask the skies to be blue as a fine backdrop for itself

Only then it enters our hearts after all these efforts

Bravo love!
And those who are in love.

Hello friends

Hello Friends, Wishing everyone a fantastic day!!
Each and everyone of us has the ability to make the world a better place we just donโ€™t always realize it. We ask the wrong questions. Some of us have a victim mentality in which we tend to ask ourselves questions like; โ€œWhy does this always happen to me?โ€ Or โ€œWhy canโ€™t I have more in life?โ€ Or โ€œWhy is life so unfair?โ€
The questions we would be better off asking ourselves are; โ€œWhat can I do to make the world a better place?โ€ Or โ€œWhose life can I help make better today?โ€ When we focus our attention on making the world a better place and not just think about ourselves the possibilities become endless. We can all play our small part to make the world more human and filled with warmth. Start asking yourself โ€œHow can I make a difference in someoneโ€™s life?โ€ And be grateful for what you have and you will begin to make this place a warmer and more caring planet.
Sending everyone Positive Vibes and Love. Peace and Love, kindness

A former De La Salle Revesby student has been awarded $1.5 million for child sex abuse.

A former De La Salle Revesby student has been awarded $1.5 million for child sex abuse.

In what can only be described as a monumental win for survivors, a survivor of child sex abuse at the hands of a De La Salle Revesby teacher was awarded a massive $1.5 million dollars in a civil suit for damages. We have put this up as a case study to give hope to other survivors

On 5 October 2018, the Supreme Court of New South Wales entered Judgment in favour of a Plaintiff who was the victim of child sexual abuse, in the amount of $1,548,488.75 plus costs. FACAA have been asked to run this story to encourage other Survivors to speak out and seek justice.

The Judgment was adopted from the findings of former Judge of the District Court of New South Wales and Justice of the ACT Supreme Court, Ms Margaret Sidis. Also, Ms Sidis was appointed through the Courtโ€™s referral process (20.14 to 20.24 of the Uniform Civil Procedure Rules 2005). In addition she was appointed as a Referee to assess the quantum of damages of the Plaintiffโ€™s claim.

For the purposes of the referral, it was accepted that there was a breach of duty of care. Additionally, that the breach caused the Plaintiff loss and damages.

The Plaintiff was the victim of prolonged and horrific sexual and physical abuse. This occurred when he was a student (Year 6) at De La Salle College, Revesby Heights in the early 1980โ€™s. He was only 11 to 12 years of age. The abuse was perpetrated by his class teacher, Mr Errol Swain. Swain died in November 1985 after being exposed as a serial paedophile.

Mr Swain had also taught religious studies and was even allowed by the Principal to live on the Schoolโ€™s premises in a caravan. There have been numerous other allegations of physical and sexual abuse made by students against Mr Swain. In fact, these going back to when he was a teacher at De La Salle, Bankstown in the 1960โ€™s.

The Referee assessed each head of damage as follows:

Damages

Non-Economic Loss (assessed at 50% of a Most Extreme Case) $306,500

Past Economic Loss $474,462

Past Superannuation Loss $52,191

Interest on Past Economic Loss $189,595

Future Income Loss $405,420

Future Superannuation Loss $50,427

Past Medical Expenses $10,988.75

Future Medical Expenses $58,905

The Refereeโ€™s reasoning offers much needed guidance in assessing personal injury damages for victims of childhood sexual and physical abuse.

Firstly, the Referee found that the physical abuse the Plaintiff was subjected to was connected to the sexual abuse and warranted consideration in her determination of non-economic loss. She found that the physical abuse, which consisted of strappings with a 30-cm long strap made of three layers of thick leather, was a means of isolating the Plaintiff in the pretext of allowing him to recover. Specifically Mr Swain would utilise the opportunity to sexually abuse the Plaintiff under the guise of comforting the Plaintiff.

This was previously a point of contention as the Defendants submitted that the physical abuse wasnโ€™t serious enough to be considered in the assessment of damages as it was a normalised form of discipline. The Referee dismissed this argument. In doing so, acknowledged the evidence of the Defendantโ€™s expert psychiatrist that Mr Swain was a โ€œbrutal teacher with a sadistic natureโ€.

The Referee considered that the Plaintiff was left traumatised by the abuse from an authority figure acting on the instruction of the Catholic School. As a result, he lost faith, trust and self-esteem. He experienced guilt, shame, anxiety, depression, nightmares and vivid flashbacks.

Loss of Earning Capacity

When determining the Plaintiffโ€™s loss of earning capacity, the Referee found that had it not been for the abuse, he would have achieved better outcomes academically and been afforded the opportunity to attain university qualifications.

She found that the evidence established that the Plaintiff had the intellectual capacity to achieve a higher level of education. The deficiencies in his schooling at the School was a result of the sexual and physical abuse by Mr Swain. It was these deficiencies which prevented him from attaining the higher level of education that he was capable of achieving.

The Referee found that the Plaintiff, but for the abuse, would have had the capacity to earn 20% above the average weekly wage of male employees in New South Wales.

Also, the Referee allowed amounts for ongoing medical treatment needs including times of relapses in his condition.

Prolonged Abuse

The Plaintiff was subjected to a prolonged period of physical and sexual abuse. Subsequently this judgement has now provided justice. Indeed, this occurred at a crucial time in his life when he was a vulnerable child.

The long standing impact upon an individual is significant.
We can only hope that the Judgment and Refereeโ€™s findings and reasons pave the way for victims of historic child sexual abuse. Therefore victims may get the justice they deserve.

The Plaintiff who wishes to remain private stated that he was very pleased with the outcome. He felt vindicated for pursuing his claim, although it has been a difficult time. Additionally he added that he hoped that he may have helped any other former students or victims who were abused by Swain. Also, to aid them in their fight for justice and accountability.

Well done to Koffels the lawyers behind this incredible decision on behalf of a survivor of child abuse, there is hope for survivors ! You can sue your abusers and there are people willing to help you seek justice.

Every Survivor who comes forward provides another piece in the puzzle that leads to justice and the truth finally being told.

    Good evening friends!
    Iโ€™m free when Iโ€™m single,
    Iโ€™m captured by someoneโ€™s thoughts and opinions,
    I want grades but Iโ€™m afraid
    What will break the fragile castles
    And Iโ€™m going to break up again
    And running into a common frame
    And how will I live my life
    With no hope for a miracle and a fairy tale

    From a series of events

    Advertisements

    A couple, both age 78, went to a sex therapistโ€™s office. The doctor asked, โ€œWhat can I do for you?โ€

    The man said, โ€œWill you watch us have sex?โ€

    The doctor looked puzzled, but agreed.

    When the couple finished, the doctor said, โ€œThereโ€™s nothing wrong with the way you have sex,โ€ and charged them $50.

    This happened several weeks in a row. The couple would make an appointment, have sex with no problems, pay the doctor, then leave.

    Finally, the doctor asked, โ€œJust exactly what are you trying to find out?โ€

    โ€œWeโ€™re not trying to find out anything,โ€ the husband replied.
    โ€œSheโ€™s married and we canโ€™t go to her house. Iโ€™m married and we canโ€™t go to my house. The Holiday Inn charges $90. The Hilton charges $108. We do it here for $50โ€ฆand I get $43 back from Medicare.

    FROM MY SONGS SERIES

    Advertisements

    I wrote this long ago when the world was young, and me with it.

    THE UTOPIAN SONG

    GO

    Go where the sun is shining bright
    Where the moon shines all night.

    Go where every day is a fair
    Where there is music in the air.

    Go where children play on the street
    There are smiles when people meet.

    Go where birds sing on every tree
    Where men walk proud and free.

    Go where everyoneโ€™s love stays true
    Where you donโ€™t ever feel blue.

    Go where ever truth prevails
    Where justice never fails

    Go where you can meet your dream girl
    Where you can feel on top of the world.

    Young is a breath of fresh air

    When we were young

    Thank you God

    Giveย thanks to God for what you are now, and keep praying and fighting for what you want to be tomorrow.

    Beautiful

    Iย am thankful for the difficult people in my life.they have shown me exactly who I donโ€™t want to be.

    CHAPTER 1. Loomings

    Call me Ishmael. Some years agoโ€”never mind how long preciselyโ€”having little or no money in my purse, and nothing particular to interest me on shore, I thought I would sail about a little and see the watery part of the world. It is a way I have of driving off the spleen and regulating the circulation.

    Whenever I find myself growing grim about the mouth; whenever it is a damp, drizzly November in my soul; whenever I find myself involuntarily pausing before coffin warehouses, and bringing up the rear of every funeral I meet; and especially whenever my hypos get such an upper hand of me, that it requires a strong moral principle to prevent me from deliberately stepping into the street, and methodically knocking peopleโ€™s hats offโ€”then, I account it high time to get to sea as soon as I can.

    IS LOVE NECESSARY?

    Advertisements

    Is love necessary,
    Really necessary?

    This singular emotion
    So much sang about
    Penned about
    Movied about
    Bandied about
    Hyped about
    Is it as they say
    Indispensable?

    Canโ€™t one live
    Without love
    And still live?
    I wonderโ€ฆ..!!

    Is a life sans love
    A desert?
    Is life with love
    A dessert?

    I seek answers
    Help me, please
    That I can cease
    To wonder to ask
    To spend my days
    With ease

    So what I plead
    Is confirmation.
    What I need
    Is affirmation
    For I canโ€™t live
    Without love.

    THE LOVELINESS OF EMBRACE

    Advertisements

    I am sure I contain you
    And somewhere in the recess
    Labyrinthine of your conscious
    There reside me, smug and comfy
    Like the bug in the veritable rug.

    I lie dormant, you hibernate
    In each otherโ€™s minds or wherever
    This is so, because it is a condition
    We remain so, until a future day dawns
    Resplendent with sunshine and birdsong
    When we see each other
    We hear a click, throwing of a switch
    I awake, you awake, we awake
    And be filled with the emotion of love
    The realization, the inhabitant love.

    And our smiles widen, wide as a mile
    The veins of our hearts intertwine
    Like a vine around a spreading tree
    Our thoughts merge, a single mind
    Blending, synergistic, empathetic
    We become conscious of each other
    Of the singular emotion suddenly innate
    Premonition is true, love so true.
    The cocoon of our respective arms
    Becomes our comfort zone, our sanctuary.
