I usually try to avoid anything political,but this is really more than that here~
I've been reading a lot in various blogs about the rights and the wrongs about the Israeli and lebanese conflict and what I'm seeing is disturbing! But thanx to papyrina I've found amongst us a fellow blogger From Lebanon,and what he says there is really a touching insight!
Please just use this link and read the post this man has written Crush the Flower he's continuing to blog while bombs and shells rain down on him from both sides in this conflict!I can't even imagine what it's like there, but through his eyes he provides a human face to those that are truly suffering there! If you chose to read, read more in his blog than just this post,I hope you find it surprising as I have!
Welcome him He is one of US!
thanx for taking the time to read~
~And Thanx
for showing me the way

When I decided to visit your basement I had no idea that it would send me to the blog of another. Vitruvius is a well-spoken and powerful writer. I read five of his posts while over there. Thanks.

Unfortunately, he has not posted in the past 16 months.

I do hope all is well with him.

Thanks for this, spunky.

blog on!

Any how, I thank you and all the visitors that have been refered by this post. I am trying as hard as I can to visit all of your blogs and I'll be doing that soon.

Welcome and Thanx! The internet has made this big world so much smaller,I just wish that it would also open peoples eyes and their hearts,so they could see the problems faced world wide!And by that maybe more united as a community! "A pebble tossed into a pool makes but a small splash,but leaves a ripple that spreads ever wider"
Not my words but What I hope for here! Take care there,And don't be a stranger here! You are always welcome here!
