A big thank you to June Perkins not only for nominating me for this award, but encouraging and supporting my writing.
About the Award
“I have designed this award because so many feel they can’t change the world. They can. You can. Your words, your blog can educate, raise awareness, change opinions and raise spirits. Through your blog you are reaching people you may never have effected any other way.
So this is for all who click away on the computer with a heart full of love, kindness, compassion and caring. For all of you who write to correct wrongs and injustices. For all of you who work to bring light into our world and hope to people’s lives. You are all heroes in my book.
Please accept this heart-felt award and pass it on to those in your WordPress family who deserve it.
Let’s keep it going for the entire year. May it inspire all with light, words, and love for the human family.”
In my own words
Blogging has become such a fundamental part of my life not just as a means of self-expression, but a platform for communication with people I love different parts of the globe.
Since dedicating a portion of my life to humanitarian aid and basic human rights issues, I have discovered that people seem to desire (almost as much as food, water, shelter, clothing and safety), someone to listen to their story and write it down.
