Daily Prompt: Infuse

From what I am seeing these days we need to infuse some hope, optimism and more importantly love into life. So many things have gotten us down that we need something to lift us up. Infusing good things into our lives will make things better I think. We need something to make things better for all. What you put into something can make the difference. An infusion of positivity can do amazing things and can change people fundamentally.

To all in the Muslim community celebrating the month of Ramadan I wish you peace during this time of prayer, fasting and reflection. May we find connections to bring us together and to seek new ways of understanding. As-salāmu ʿalaykum to everyone.

Red Nose Day 2017 #rednose

Red Nose Day is dedicated to end child poverty by raising money and awareness for kids in the U.S. and around the world. I support this worthy cause because every child should have every chance for a great future. They need to be safe and secure too.

This Is My Blog, Not Facebook

My blog is my blog and I won’t have any sort of arguments in the comments in my posts. This is not Facebook. My posts are my opinions and everything I write comes from my heart and head. I reserve the rights to shut off comments and to delete them too if it warrants it. Trolls seem to be out there wanting to make life hard for people online.

Friends I feel very deeply and conflict is something I am so not comfortable with. A post I wrote about The Children of Manchester somehow became the focus of a back and forth argument between two bloggers. One blogger also had issues with what I said in my post and you know I don’t mind a little criticism here and there but not when it puts into doubt my intelligence and understanding of the issues of the day I am not cool with that.

Well, I have a lot invested in my blog and this is my digital home so I won’t be moved or discouraged from speaking my mind.

Oh by the way I am a liberal and this blog is very left-of-center so you know what you are getting here.
