What’s happening to our world, has it gone mad?
How did it ever get this bad!
The mindless violence and killing,
The tears, the pain, the blood that’s spilling!
Innocent lives taken each day,
A cost they should have not had pay!
The cry for world peace appears in vain,
What’s happening to our world, this is insane!
What is the meaning of all this hate,
With us, the innocent, used as bait!
To fuel the terror that has ravished our lands,
It’s time end this and reach out our hands!
To stand strong together, to stand and unite,
To salvage our world and bring an end to this fight!

Last night I attended an outdoor theatre with my girlfriends, not something that any of us had done before so we were all extremely excited. The setting was beautiful in the woodland area of a local farm and Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” was the subject of the evening’s entertainment. Continue reading “Shakespeare? Or just a bunch of crazy people having fun!”
One of life’s true blessing is friendship!
A majority of people can count the number of their true friends on one hand and I am no different, we all have a circle of people that we know and enjoy spending time with but there are usually only a few people in that circle that know you inside out, I’m talking from your darkest secrets to your biggest accomplishments, your failures, your heart breaks and your joys, the ones that you can really just be yourself with, the ones that pick you up off the floor when life knocks you down and the ones that are there to help you celebrate when life is good! But how do these friendships grow, what is the key ingredient to a successful friendship? Continue reading “Friends! The family you choose for yourself!”
