SOCIALLY SPEAKING THE GENERAL MOOD AROUND GLBTI PEOPLE AND GROUPS IS TOLERANT AND ACCEPTING, HOWEVER OUR COUNTRY IS STILL PROGRESSING IN REGARDS TO TRANSSEXUAL RIGHTS, TRANSGENDER RIGHTS, TO BE MADE LAW, THAT ENSURES EQUALITY FOR ALL. WE ARE ONE OF THE BEST NATIONS IN THE WORLD, WE AS CANADIANS HAVE A RESPONSIBLITY TO SET A STANDARD FOR OTHER NATIONS TO LOOK UP TO. IN MANY OTHER REGIONS OF THE WORLD, HOMOSEXUALITY IS SUPPRESSED BY HOMOPHOBIA AND LACK OF EDUCATION, TRANSGENDER EDUCATION IS NECESSARY FOR PEOPLE OF A MODERN PROGRESSIVE SOCIETY TO EMBRACE AND UNDERSTAND THESE ISSUES, AND TO KEEP PEOPLE FROM MAKING IMPROPER ASSUMPTIONS. I ALSO BELIEVE THAT IT IS NECESSARY FOR THE CHURCH TO EMBRACE GENDER DIVERSITY, TO BRING PEOPLE INTO SPIRITUALITY REGARDLESS OF WHO THEY ARE. RELIGIOUS ACCEPTANCE OF GAY PEOPLE IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF MAKING ALL PEOPLE, "EQUAL AMONG EQUALS" ~ NATASHA FOX

Buna ziua! Ma numesc Florina Hendre, toamci am terminat Facultatea de Stiinte Politice si Stiintele Comunicarii, sectiunea Jurnalism, si-mi doresc enorm sa pot pleca sa muncesc intr-o alta tara, undeva departe. Ar fi ocazia unica in care as putea decide in ce directie trebuie indreptata cariera mea. Un bun inceput promitator ar fi sa pot pleca la munca in Canada! Va multumesc![BRGwork] Vi s-a raspuns la mesaj pe adresa dvs de email. Multumim pentru post!

Buna ziua,Doresc sa stiu daca sansa nu am avut sa primesc un coarntct pentru practica platita in Grecia, care ar fi sansele sa primesc un astfel de coarntct pe Canada?Astept cu interes un raspuns de la dumneavoastra.P.S. Daca nu va fi un raspuns pozitiv, as dori sa mai primesc odata cererea pentru a retrage taxa platita pentru practica platita in Greacia(am sters-o din greseala).Cu respect,Iordache Mihaela0740139925 http://ejwzgiztztd.com [url=http://sjxoqwyz.com]sjxoqwyz[/url] [link=http://dolupxgmqn.com]dolupxgmqn[/link]
