Global Human Rights-Education Press Release on bullying (and My Newly Composed Song: Nowhere to Hide!)

Bullying is a world-wide problem and Global-HR is linking us to a film, posted on You Tube, to help us join hands to combat it.  Please check it out! 

Also, here’s my newly composed song, Nowhere to Hide, to encourage victims of bullying to face the world of bullies by building courage, focusing and enjoying the goodness of life.  Rather than hiding or looking for a place to hide, we need to speak up.  Those of us, who have not experienced bullying, we need to join hands discouraging bullies of their aggressive verbal and non-verbal actions.

NOWHERE TO HIDE!  (Lyric and music: (c) Edmund Industan, March 5, 2014)

1)  Going around the world

Looking for a perfect place to hide (Yes, to hide)

USA to Africa

Great Britain to Australia (Nowhere to hide)

You won’t find a perfect place.

There’s someone who won’t give you peace.

Nowhere to hide!


No destination is a perfect place

Those in the east are the same as the west.

Nowhere to hide (completely to hide)

E’en if you go around the world!

People in every corner of the world

They have behavior the same where you’re from

Just try to live; enjoy what you can.

Adapt, adjust, look for something fun.

2.  Bullying is around! 

Just ignore it if you can (Oh, yes, yes, you can)

E’en if you’re in Russia,

Philippines, or Canada (Nowhere to hide)

You know there ain’t a place to hide.

E’en in Falkland, Greenland, or New Zealand.

Nowhere to hide! 

(Repeat Ref.)

Subject: [hr-education] Beat bullying! The role of citizenship and human rights education
To: edmindustan@gmail.com

Bullying in schools is a worldwide problem that can have negative consequences for the general school climate and for the right of students to learn in a safe environment without fear. Bullying is the consequence of aggressive behaviour that has to be stopped and prevented.

Education for democratic citizenship and human rights plays a crucial role in raising awareness and promoting the respect of human dignity and social cohesion among learners and educators. Moreover, education for democratic citizenship and human rights aims at strengthening learners’ and educators’ knowledge, skills, attitudes and values for handling diversity and differences, promoting a positive environment and preventing violence at school through a model of coexistence which affirms the existence of others, rejects violence and protects children’s rights.

Are you worried about bullying in schools? Did you know that there are simple and inexpensive ways to tackle the problem? Watch the Council of Europe’s new film on combating bullying in schools through human rights and citizenship education, to see how the introduction of a human rights ethos in schools can help prevent bullying. The film was launched at a side event during the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly session on 30 January 2014.

You don’t have to pray!  I’m beginning to build up some thick skin to sing in front of strangers at The Beat Coffee House in downtown Las Vegas.

Tonight will be another song, which I just composed.  Wheww.. New Year has just begun and am tired already.  Sign of getting older and older every minute of the year.

Anyway, here’s the presentation tonight!

A delivery of Senryu!      Crow’s getting grayish!

                                        Slowlly limping needing brace!

                                        I’m tired of waiting!

(Well, if other presenters opens with a ‘green’ joke, I might change the phrase,”needing brace’ with “VIAGRA?’)

And here’s the newly composed song that follows:



(c) Edmund Industan, Jan. 5, 2014

I’m tired of waiting for you!

I’m tired of promises!

I’m tried of all that you do!

They crumble into pieces!


For I’m just a man

Molded from a clay

Breath given to me

Nursed with a caring heart!

Oh, please hear me now!

Please do me a vow!

But if you don’t care

Please don’t stale me for a year

“Coz I’m tired!



I’m tired of writing to you!

I’m tired to think and dream!

I’m tired and I’m feeling blue

For answers never came!

(Repeat chorus)


I’m tired of waiting for you!

No sense of faithfulness!

No matter what you will do

It’s always hit and miss!

(Repeat chorus)


My 5-min.of embarrassing fame is up!  Have the best New Year everyone!

The forecast for Las Vegas, Nevada on Monday, December 2nd, 2013 was 20 degrees F.  When I got home, my wife was finishing up her art craft, a holiday wreath of red bells.  I was inspired to look at the final product.  Therefore, I wrote a song about it.  Here it is:

1)      Come Home, Babe, This Christmas Time

It’s twenty degrees outside

It’s chilly and cold as your heart

But Christmas is here

Please show that you care

And show your warm love tonight.


A red wreath I made with bells

Green mistletoe wound around it.

I’m waiting fro you

To shake it and show

Warm kisses for me tonight.


Ref:  Oh, my heart has been broken to pieces

Like a glass, crashed in shards, hundred times.

Please glue my heart, babe, with your warm embrace.

Oh, please, come home, babe, this Christmas time.


No gift is as huge as you

The love in your heart to renew!

Yes, Christmas is here

Assure me you care

Take me from this stormy life.


Your presence is all I need

With kisses and your warm embrace;

But fate seems to keep

Our distance afar

Even at this Christmas time.

(Repeat Ref.)

I will be singing this at the Human Experience Poetry Night at The Beat Coffee House in Downtown Las Vegas this coming Monday, December 16th.  Last time, I sang my original composition, “Nevada, Evening Sky”. 

Hope you will be there.  If I have enough time, I also would be delivering this quatern poetry, which I wrote couple of years back and considered as the second  best quatern published online.  Here’s it is:



(c) Edmund Industan

Peace, why are you so elusive?

Like a bird chirping melody

Yet so far to hear it clearly

And translate the notes correctly.


We long to give you sweet embrace

Peace, why are you so elusive?

You flap your wings; you exude grace

White plumes flaunt to attract and tease.


We think of you day in and out.

Hope olive branch is dropped en route

Peace, why are you so elusive?

Guileless victims now in a clout


Everyone’s dreaming to hold you

Hoping never to let you go

Alas, we wake up without you.

Peace, why are you so elusive?

 NOTE: As the finale, I will sing this sentence.

Finale:  Oh, Peace, Please Come Home, Tonight!
