This one’s for Youbi and her friends …

……and following on STILL fired up ….just wanted to mention Youbi in Nigeria ….her blog is called UB …..I have been trying to reblog her latest post but don’t seem to be able to

Just to say that Youbi and her fellow students were holding a peaceful protest against the persistent hiking of their student fees this week … and were SHOT AT by the police killing one member who was shot 3 times.

The college is currently closed for a month ….I get the impression Youbi feels it may not re open ….she is currently safe at home and asking for all our prayers …it is 2 years this week since over 200 girls were kidnapped by Islamists in Nigeria….how can 200 girls just disappear like that!!!??? …..but Youbi is now feeling the Police are just as bad ….ANYWAY ..needless to say I guess these youngsters feel caught between a rock and a hard place at the moment ….if anyone can get onto her site and just send a like or a comment I’m SURE it will be appreciated …..she is the beautiful young lady who has ‘like’ed my previous post

  1. Thanks for the reblog/follow/like/etc
    but if you are following me, my close friends say it would be far more entertaining with a video-camera*!)

    * By the way, do they still make them in today’s ever-faster changing world..or is it all done with mobile phones?

    Thanks for the follow/link/like/reblog/comment and/or kind thought(s))



    I’ve had many many hundreds of thousands of comments on my various other WordPress blogs at
    in recent years …true!) …a few of my blogs went “balistically viral” a few years back.

    Obsessive or WHAT! Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share. However I am unable to keep up with the comments and was spending entire days just on replies on my various blog pages.

    Though I’m rather “driven”, I still get really, really fatigued (there’s a few books there). so sorry can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet, but DO try to read as many as possible daily (and even moderate a few when I get a “mo”), I got swamped with comments on my various blogs, so have had to close them off on all of my blogs, except for one or two of particular interest to me – sorry and hope you can understand.

    I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks for the thanx”

    “As we live and move and have our being, so from this vision, we create heaven in our own lives… and perhaps even heaven on earth.”
    – craig (as inspired by Acts 17:28 and the words of Felicia Searcy)

    “Aim at the earth and you may not get off the ground.a
    “Aim at the stars and you may reach the moon.”
    “Aim at heaven and you’ll have earth thrown in…
    and you may even hit the stars.”
    – craig (as inspired by the famous quote by CS Lewis – 24th May 2012)

    “When once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
    – Leonardo da Vinci

    When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”

    – as adapted from the inspiring words of Jonathan Edwards, former minister in New England, Massachusetts

    “The Greatest Race: Living by (with) faith, hope and love is the highest podium any person can reach, God’s podium that anyone stand on.”
    – c

    “Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”


    “If a man is called to be a street-sweeper,
    he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted,
    or Beethoven composed music, or
    Shakespeare wrote poetry.
    He should sweep streets so well
    that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say,
    here lived a great street sweeper
    who did his job well.”
    – Dr Martin Luther King, Jr.

    Instead of trying to reply to each one of you, I’ll just keep on writing

    “I wish you well on a rainy day
    I wish you rainbows to brighten your day
    To feel your quiet moments with a special kind of warmth
    to remind you that happiness can happen
    when you least expect it.

    I wish you rainbows to make you laugh and smile
    to show you the simple beauty of life
    and to give you the magic of dreams come true.

    I wish you rainbows
    I wish you well.”

    – Larry S. Chengges

    ”Since I can never see your face,
    And never shake you by the hand,
    I send my soul through time and space
    To greet you. You will understand.”
