she who risks her life seeking life in the snow mother’s warmth * warm your arms serving with no complaint broken, impatient  Each of us have been recipients of the selfless care of others.

A glimpse of hope

It was broken so was she but a piece was still remaining That small shard reflected life hope possibilities maybe even a future *** “Oh ” she sighed as she picked up a piece of her heart there it is me! *** It was soft vulnerable it’s true but it was still beating

"There is but one straight course, and that is to seek truth and pursue it steadily" - George Washington letter to Edmund Randolph — 1795. Going beyond the MSM idealogical opinion/bias and their tabloid news with a distractional superficial focus on entertainment, sensationalism, emotionalism and activist reporting - this blogs goal is to, in some small way, put a plug in the broken dam of truth and save as many as possible from the consequences—temporal and eternal. "The further a society drifts from truth, the more it will hate those who speak it." - George Orwell
