War Torn #Peaceonearth #poetry

  I held a Sudanese hand it fit so small in mine I caught a ragged smile I wished I had more time We sang a song of praise they dance with all their might their mamas and their papas they lost them in war’s night fortitude and strength the littlest they stand hope, faith, […]

Joy’s Smile #orphans #uganda #sundaydevotion

Goodness in those eyes kindness in his smile  little fingers wrap in mine  never want to let go God is the maker children such a gift may actions always match the love I feel inside   I am always disturbed when I hear of children who are cast-offs. Our world has grown careless with its […]

Nile and Orphans #uganda #atozchallenge #Acholi

In Life’s Mirror #poetry #uganda #photography

In the mirror of a water bucket I see: A blur of color children with bright hearts flames cannot douse courage little girls pump, pump, pump feet steadily move up the hill “more water” little heads bear yellow water jugs school books brown edged blue chairs too hot to touch  ashen are next day’s reflections […]

"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
