Lost and Found Valentines
Lost and Found Blogfest

This is what they needed: In honor of an upcoming Valentine’s Day, we want you to write about love lost or found. Share the highs and lows that only matters of the heart can bring. As such, our question for this month is just that: “When have you lost or found love?”

Beirut, #Paris, Nigeria, #Mali, #Syria : what can You do to help?


Instead of fighting with each other on social media, I urge everyone who is in a position to physically or financially help out those in need to do so, now more than ever.

One of the organizations my support goes to is Projectwhy in New Delhi, India, about which I’ve written here.

If you want to help a genuine organization trying to help children with a few dollars (as little as 5 dollars or Euros would help), where each cent of your money would go to the kids themselves, donate here. I’ve supported them for years, and this place is run by a woman with a large heart, exactly the kind who can protect us from guns with flowers.

Or, find another place, people, or cause to add your positive energy to. Do something for a person or animal or plant without concern for your own material benefit. We cannot fight darkness, we need to light a candle in order to make it melt away.

Writing About Guilt


Ok we are there. I don’t like that table. I feel scared, don’t put me down, don’t!

Ok, nasty man go away. Give me back to her!

Wait, girl, why are you going away? Don’t leave me and go, please, please, please! I am calling to you, are you deaf? You always come when I cry, don’t leave me with the nasty man!

Oh, he hurt me, he put that sharp thing in me! The nasty man hurt me! Come back!

I feel sleepy now, I feel so sleepy…come back, come back!
