Will you

turn on he light?"

"Don't worry,

I'll stay by you

all night..."

"I'm cold now...

will you

hold me tight?"

"Don't worry;

here ; is this alright?"

"I'm so hot... my fever...

it won't let me go..."

"Don't worry, I'll cool you

Feel the chill of the water?"

"When I'm gone,

you'll forget me..."

"shhh... here

snuggle up

in my arms

"Ill always miss you...;

But I'll always see you...

In the woods, by the beach,

and as far

as my imagination

can reach

For our love

Has embraced

it all!"

Katrina Visions


August 26,2006

CBS has been airing Katrina stories in honor of the anniversary of Katrina; stories of despair mixed with hope.

I wanted to write about two of their reports .

The first story is about Mr. Hardy Jackson , who could not hold onto his wife and stay afloat during the flood. She bravely said:"Let me go. Promise me that you will go back and take care of the children and the grandchildren." He finally agreed. "I will." And sadly, he let his wife go. He and the entire family was relocated to Atlanta, Georgia; where a generous donor gave them a house. He is grateful that he has the children and grandchildren together; however,he still grieves over his wonderful wife.

What extraorodinary courage and devotion!Have yuo ever known anyone who would give this much to help her family?

Embryonic Stem Cell Research: Should a new bill Pass?

The Week

July 28,2006

The Senate is wondering whether it can pass a bill (or perhaps some Senators want a bill) which would allow reserachers to access some 400,000 embryos that are currently not used in fertility centers in freezers...

This is the upswing and please comment on that .

Now, for the speculation, National Review has journalists jointly quoted in my article and it says that stem-cell researchers want a green light to clone embryos en masse! So what do you think?

Google did the pictures

Introduction- (John Scalzi, our journals' teacher, gave us the assignment to write about very atttractive things about our home towns.You may write that below or leave us a link to that entry; or you may write about what would be in your ideal town.)

My Ideal Town

My ideal town would have a large lake with lots of fish!Kids would be able to go fishing when they were free...

There would be creative and funny activities for adults and children alike.

There would be a great beach to walk on and there would be mountain trails to hike up.

People would reach out and help other people and try to make life less suffering.

The city council would actually listen to what people wanted in theri town and try to help them. The school principals would actually try to help kids and he or she would really have the time and consideration to talk to parents and teachers.

Hey is this your town????  if it is, let me know! I want to go!

What kind of things make up your ideal town and what would people do there? Please tell us!

What do you think about the new Plan B pill?


August 24, 2006

The FDA has decided to allow people 18 and over to buy the morning after pill; which means that people this age who did get pregnant would eb able to terminate the pregnancy up to 3 days after getting pregnant. It prevents the egg from being able to attach to the wall of the uterus the journalist said.

So do you think it is a good medicine to have available?

Should it be available only to this age? older?younger?

Let us know what you think.
