Wasps on the highway…nest in progress!
I’m greatly distressed just as several other right thinking citizens across this country are, as I read & hear of the growing incidents of children being raped & sexually molested across India.
I hope & pray this deadly plague of rape which destroys millions of children around the world will come to an end.
I hope the people who indulge in this perversion understand how utterly wrong, debased & filthy it is. Raping children is nothing short of demonic and is a terrible abomination.
I hope these people understand the implications of their barbaric acts on the innocents who are traumatized & scarred for life – physically, mentally & emotionally.
I hope & pray this plague will end. Soon.
Wrote the poem below after recently hearing about another innocent child who was raped & her happy life forever altered…
For no fault of mine
Loved & happy
Free as a butterfly
That’s who I am.
I am a little girl
My family loves me
That’s my greatest strength.
I go to school to learn & play
It’s a new world out there
That’s what I love to do.
I made many friends
We laugh and we play
That’s how I grow.
The teacher uncle I trusted
Tells me he cares
He holds me & does things
That’s when I know its wrong.
He rapes me.
A word I didn’t even know
And my happy childhood he brings to an end.
A butterfly I was
That was then
Now I lie sad & wounded on the ground.
Someone’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality! – words uttered to Les Brown by a teacher & these words changed his life.
A must watch video!
It is a reminder that greatness is often born on the bed of adversity, trials come in to sharpen us & make us stronger & winning is an attitude.
Let the naysayers keep at what they do best BUT don’t let that affect YOU!
Just go ahead & work on making your dreams come true!
The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong…
“When you don’t give up, you cannot fail”
Powerful, moving & a brilliant tribute to Parenting!
I got to see this vintage safe.
Said to be about 100 years old.
With complex locks, some hidden in its grooves.
Sheer brilliance in craft & design.
Given the times when it was made.
