The Fear Of The Unknown: Fix a Heart

This week I had to write something with a meaningful meaning but also I hadn’t had a chance to write a story for this week. So it’s poetry this week guys. It’s a little short one for you.

It’s probably what’s best for you; if I went and left you too it because I only want the best for you, and if I’m not the best then you’re stuck. I don’t want to be third best at everything; I want to be there for you, I want what’s best for you but I just feel like I’m a third wheel. I tried to sever ties and I ended up with wounds to bind. It feels like when you can’t talk to me about things; it feels like you’re pouring salt in my cuts.

I just ran out of band-aids because I don’t even know where to start as you can only bandage the damage; you can never really can fix a heart, even though I know what’s wrong but how could I be so sure. If you never say what you feel, feel. I must have held your hand so tight; you didn’t have the will to fight, I guess you needed more time to heal,

You must be a miracle worker because your swearing up and down; like you can fix what’s been broken, yeah. So please don’t get my hopes up if I’m going to be a third wheel in this relationship; no, no, baby, tell me how could you be so cruel?

Calling out to all businesses and local business

Calling out to all businesses from the back and beyond, don’t forget local business in Guildford and surrounding areas of my hometown. 

Calling out to all businesses from the back and beyond, don’t forget local business in Guildford and surrounding areas of my hometown. I would like to ask you to help donate and retweet this blog to your fellow business friends, clients and all of the galore. Think I’m starting to sound big headed all well got to advertise one way or another haven’t I; by throwing in my amazing skills of dry sense of humour into the works of things, the reason why I want to reach out to you awesome people is because I have been assigned to this mammoth task of helping a charity called Sentebale but only just one area of West Africa and the country that I am based of helping is Nigeria. 

In Nigeria there children who are out there who need your help, be their voices, and your love. The charity has only set the foundation in Nigeria barely six months of this year (2017), they literally have nothing to help the children to read, write or learn knew skills that will equip them for life. My offer is too is this. If you help us to raise the funds to be able to get things up and running. We will be able to help train the children who can learn new skills; how money works, how long it takes them to make the projects and most importantly know that with the money of each product that they make gets sold. The money will go back to them through the charity; if this sounds right up your street by helping the children, to provide for themselves and to achieve positive goals. 

Let me tell you the story of what their life is like out there along side quotes from one of the countries that has been founded by Sentebale already. You may need tissues or a shoulder to cry on when you read this.

Story of Nigeria and the children who need our help

Nigeria is a country that nestled itself in the middle of Benin which boarders which is the West of Nigeria; in the East you will find Chad and Cameroon, in the North is Niger and in the South lays the coast of Gulf of Guninea which is facing out to the Atlantic Ocean. Nigeria is actually known as Federal Republic of Nigeria; it is also referred to as the ‘Giant of Africa’ owing to the population and economy, as it is the most popular country in Africa and the seventh most populous country in the world. 

Nigeria has also been known to one of the most population of youths in the world; along with approximately 188 million inhabitants in the country alone, the fact that this is a well known and popular country to go to. However I would like to take you down to behind the scenes of the reason why I want you to come, read and donate. 

The fact is in Nigeria no one really talks about the needy, the homeless and the orphans in the country. There are children who have witness loosing their parents to HIV right before their eyes; there are some children who don’t even know that they have contracted the disease, or even been passed down from their parents until they get tested and some come back with positives.

Children become homeless due to being rejected from their families, their communities, or even when they eat with other children at school the teachers think that they are going to pass it on to other students. Children from all ages do not understand how or why they are being treated as an out cast to everyone. There are some children who cannot finish their education due to the fact that their families or friends cannot afford the uniform, materials or even worst luck is to looking after their other siblings due to the fact that no one else can due to their parents or any other family members passing away from HIV. 

As I was watching a few youtube video clips for research and etc for this page; I have picked out a few stories from three different generations one from a 9 year old, a teenager and a nurse. Why not read on; see for yourself how they manage to cope with having HIV, along with a nurse who is helping one of the children today. Please bare this in mind that; these are real life stories that I’m talking to you about, along with their ages may have changed since I have taken on this role.

Children/nurses in Lesotho have come to tell their story (when it was documented at the time). Here are their stories of how they deal with it all. First story quote is being told by Mots’ Eliso Motaung from Lesotho “My name is Mots’ Eliso Motaung. I am 9 years old. It’s terrible living with HIV. I never tell anyone that I have HIV’ 

The second story quote is from a teen (I didn’t really catch the her name) but this is her story. “When I was young I got sick, I didn’t feel good about myself. People didn’t like me playing with their children. At school I wasn’t allowed to eat from the same plate as them because they said I would infect the others. I was very upset. I wondered why me? What have I done that makes me different from other children” 

Third story is where a nurse who knows the teen’s background and this is what she had said “she was very young only 6 years old and she didn’t understand what was happening. I think HIV was stigmatised because people didn’t understand it. HIV is the same as any other disease and we’re now able to treat it, and get better.’ 

That’s just one country tackling the HIV that has effected the children no matter what; this is what we want to do in Nigeria to be able to tackle the needy, the homeless and Orphans that have been effected in this way by the terrible disease. One volunteer that I have asked what is it like in the home that he works in he replied ‘It’s fun (working with the children) Nigeria is a place of fun. Different kids with different talents and when a volunteer worker see’s a new kid, they start to wonder, what does this kid have now?’

We want to raise money to be able to help us to buy enough materials that can produce enough to be able to products and to teach the children new skills; how to make money, how to achieve things in life no matter how bad their life is or what they had to go through in their time they have. Along with we need to have enough money to be able to fund everyday essentials that we can use; like toothpaste, toothbrushes, hair brushes and etc. 

Every little donation that you make will help go towards these supplies; no matter how little or how big, we appreciate it and it will go along way to help the Nigerian children who need the love and support that is coming from everywhere else. In showing that they are being heard, listened to, being loved and cared for no matter how it is received in the correct manner.

In the light of remembering 100 years and Dunkirk

In memory of 100 years ago was the First World War between 1914-1918. In the running of the 100 years; Christopher Nolan had created a film about Dunkirk; the tragic, the fear, the frightened has come to the screens as actors recreate the days of Dunkirk. What it must of felt like when the Second World War happened from 1939-1945. In the days of the 1940s on the beaches of Dunkirk.

The miracle evacuation of Dunkirk in the Second World War has brought to real life again; through actors who played the roles of the soldiers who had died that day, trying to come home but left vulnerable on open lands of the beaches and the sea. Director Christopher Nolan has turned to the evacuation of Dunkirk for his latest acclaimed film; the fact that he brought back the the stunning great escape that helped Britain avoid defeat in the Second World War, showing that we had risked everything in the days of saving the British army. 

100 years ago was the First World War saw lots of unnerved, scared, frightened men who didn’t want to be out in the war zone; in May 26 and June 4, 1940 and that year saw some 338,000 troops rescued from the beaches of Dunkirk. Following Nolan’s success of blockbusters such as The Dark Knight and Inception; Nolan’s latest film that tells the story of Dunkirk, “the event that shaped our world”, as the poster says.

Nolan and his crew have gone to great depth of history, research and pains to faithfully to recreate Operation Dynamo to able to see what it may of looked like and feel like the time that had taken place.

Dunkirk – The Event That Shaped Our World/ Shaped Our Country

Lizzysweeklyblogs Review of Dunkirk 

I got invited to go to see the film Dunkirk by my best friend that I use to work with called Meg Anne. Who wanted to see it because it hard Harry Styles from One Direction in it; not sure at the time she knew the true history of the event, until I had to explain it all to her at the end of the film when she got confused on some areas. Which is understandable to be honest when I’m a bit older than her and did study it at school, went on the trips to the areas where they were fight in both wars (not at Dunkirk) and also knowing a bit more due to own self research along with family who are into different types of historical facts themselves.

The film was very in tense throughout the film; not much dialogue throughout the film but the fact that I was literally hugging my cardigan close to my face, meant I felt like I was there on the beaches with the soldiers who were frightened and scared at the time it was happening. 

Every time the camera panned to Tom Hardy and Kenneth Branagh when something serious was about to happen. I was like NO! And OMG! They are going to die but yet they survived every time it happened for another second, another minute, another half an hour, another hour and another day. You could tell something wasn’t going to be right; when the cameras went onto Kenneth Branagh, it was the way he looked up into the sky and he soon realised what was coming towards them all.  
I believe that all the actors who did the film have to be well and truly magnificent because to be able to experience something like that as acting if your adrenaline kicks in; the fear of the unknown what’s coming next, the fear of I’m going to be next one to be killed. 

I would rate this film as 5/5 because it’s absolutely brilliant. 

Guest Review: Megan Anne’s Dunkirk Review 

Apologies for strong bad language from my friend; she has no concept of her language, especially when it comes to Harry Styles. I’ll try my best to reduce the amount of swearing by bleeping them out but keeping them in as it’s her words not mine. However she wants me to had more to it just to make her look smarter but I’ll see what I can do.

I personally didn’t know what to to expect to begin with; but I was happy with the film based on the true facts of history, of our past that had changed our future that we live in today. The film was so tense that I was on the edge of my seat; making me feel like I was there on the beaches of Dunkirk, like I wanted to help save each solider that were in danger whilst putting myself at risk. The fact that I was confused at some parts of the film; yet having Lizzy’s knowledge and understanding of what it would be like out there, also having the understanding that one of he actors were actually the ones of the good guys as she explained to me which airplanes are which and which side they belong to. The fact that I know I can pick Lizzy’s brains for things like these topics; I know I can’t go wrong either way, and I like to learn new things that I didn’t know before. 

All the actors were amazing bringing everything to life; bring me into their world of what’s happening throughout the film, as there’s not a lot of dialogue throughout the film but the actors showed that their feelings of being anxious, panicky, petrified, running scared and terror stricken. Oh and the most important thing was that Harry Style was unbelievable; he was playing a character that I really didn’t expect play, but as he brought out the heart racing that my heart was going to come out of my chest. As there were lots of tense scenes that he was in; as I thought my life was going to be over if he died in battle of survival, “because of Harry F********* Styles” sorry guys I can’t help it he’s absolutely beautiful! 

Fantastically directed film by Christopher Nolan. I would rate it overall 5 stars. 

10 Things That Makes Me Want To Stop Thumper!

The time when you know that your going to get a really bad headache coming; when it gets to the point of thumping like Thumper from Bambi comes along, and ends up getting his bouncing gear on and starts thumping against your skull. Yep I got that we’ll get that most days.

So 10 things that makes me want to stop Thumper from thumping my head on average day to day life; so that I can get on and do things can be quite tricky, especially you know whats causing the problems of the headache in the first place. 

  1. Overthinking can cause my Thumper to thump my brain like I’ve been hitting my head against a brick wall. 
  2. Stress can cause my Thumper to come when you just at least expect it. 
  3. Mental Health when my brain starts to go all funny and you can just about to hear and feel Thumper in the background thumping hard trying to be heard.
  4. The fact that when I’ve been crying so much I strain myself without realising and theres that thumping sound again. 
  5. Cold or a flu thats coming my way and thats when I begin to wonder why I get the thumping against my skull. 
  6. Sinus headache when they are all blocked up and begin to throb hard
  7. When shouting at someone or something thats when it makes my head hurt due to the fact that; I’m so like one of my parents that I go from 0-60 in five seconds.
  8. When my face starts twitching so much that it gives me the headaches because my face cant stop twitching.
  9. Sleeping too much or too little or just feeling goggle in the mornings
  10. Just when you feel like your a net between two houses that shout and your like a ping pong ball or tennis ball being hit back and fourth. That can give you headache at the best of times.

The fact that I just didn’t write what the title was actually about but heyho might as well change it like 10 things to avoid Thumper coming to attack my head. Or 10 things that I wish Thumper wouldn’t do to my head. I think I might of made a gobble goose of this weeks Wednesday post; it was a good idea to do it at the time when I had it, heyho Thumper looks to cute to not carry it out so no. 

My Everything

Thought I’ll bring in a joint blog morning session for Sentebaleblogs and lizzysweeklyblogs; well teaming up with me, myself and I writing them off course. The fact that I can do the amazing trick is going to be a test because I have no hope of being able to keep up with two blogs at the same time. So Wednesday Mornings at 10am is Sentebaleblogs time to have its first major Wednesday event; I thought who else knows how to kick start it all on a Wednesday, I know my Wednesday Evening Post at 8pm for Lizzysweeklyblogs. Joint effort they all say. 

I cried enough tears to see my own reflection in them; as they roll down my cheeks and into the river, that’s when it was clear that I can’t deny I really miss him and them. To think that I was wrong. I guess you really don’t know what you got until it’s gone. All the pain is just the consequences of the love that we have; I’m just saying on behalf of the children, I’m sorry for the sake of us.

He and them was my everything; until I realised that they had nothing to go on and it’s taking me a lot to say but now he’s gone to rescue the children, my heart is missing something and so now it’s time that I pushed my pride away. This is because you are my everything; you are, you are my everything.  

I know that you’re not going to be that far away but I still can’t handle all of the distance that’s between us; yet you are travelling with me in my heart, as I’m in yours. I hope this is a temporary feeling because this is too much to bear; when they have nothing, without him they know that sorry isn’t a cure but they know that he will get help from somewhere. The children wondered if it ever crossed your mind if they are worth fighting for; because they are his everything and they are my everything, it is time to feel what is is missing in your heart. It is time that you start pushing your pride away. 

Listen to the night sky. As it’s nice and peaceful. The stars glisten you can hear the words of tiny voice of the children singing; “you are, you are, you are my everything.” 

The Inside Of A Teenager’s Mind and How To Communicate.

Teenagers who want to communicate but they can’t because they feel the fear of being judged, get criticism and etc from their parents.

To be able to communicate is to have the ability to connect when it really matters; even when it is often based on the ability to connect, even it doesn’t you have to build the positive of the relationships between a parent and a teen at the time. Even where there is sorting out any communication difficulties in the way of it but there are importance of big talks about significant topics with the teen who may feel embarrassed about talking to their parents about it. 

Channeling the communication to be open between the parent and a teen; is that teenagers may need their parents guidance and boundaries that they may draw and hold. This may have the impact of to be a tactical for any parents or teenagers to get this across on both sides.

Be assertive of your authority may need to be different; when dealing with authority it has to be averse teen, rather than an automatic respectful child. Teens still need to know that you are still interested, still care, on their side and watch. Even if you always don’t agree with them; you need to have the skills and the emotional resilience to go on offering help; even if the face is showing or behind the glass of indifference and opposition.

However getting locked into unhelpful ways of communicating with bickering, nagging, criticism that we all have at times with our parents and teens. Even though we tried to hard to avoid relating to them in every day life; it would either make it easier or just make it, plan lot harder to sort out the key issues.

Reduce the amount of indifference and the opposition between you and your teenager; is by improving your skills, every teen is different to the previous child. Not all teenagers are going to be the same; or the same as you when you were there age. Teens often behave in aways which that it will come difficult for you as parents to give them what they need the most. You as a parent cannot change your teen; but you can change what you do in life and how you behave differently, even if its comes to the point of matching the results in the other person. In which matching you and alternate their behaviour in themselves.

If you need a pet talking lessons or words to help start with the lines of communication open with your teenager, what should you be doing? That’s if you as a parent can help it in away of saying horrible or a criticism way. Why not look in ways of opportunities to talk off-message; like what interests they like doing, or ask if they can join or ask them if they want to come with you as a parent. 

Such like use ‘I’ messages, use open question, share something of yourself, treat the young person as an equal, practise what you preach, listen without judgement or criticism, appreciate them for their positive qualities, give unconditional love but hold strong boundaries over behaviour, give frequent ‘strokes’ as my mum puts it licks like a cat by stroking my arm and yes I did roll my eyes at that one, include the young person in family activities but give them the choice to opt out, understand and take action only when asked for help

This is where I found my research; I let you in a little secret, I was reading/doing this when one of my parents were talking to me giving me a lecture about something. Believe me I try and avoid everything as much as possible and I’m 26 years old currently. By the time in the few years time I’ll be a lot older than this blog haha. 

Strategies when Launching a Successful Blog 

To be able to launch a successful blog in ways that you can describe the true meaning of yourself and passion.


Strategies for launching a successful blog is to be able to define your target audience for your blog and to be able to cater to that audience in what they like to read. Main important thing is to keep on bringing them back to read more of your niche. It is the best way forward to build a dedicated audience for any blog; is to be able to carefully and be more clear in defining the target audience right from the start. Work around the content that will cater to all of the audience that you have thought about. The fact that I repeated myself a bit but I just made it more cooler than what I thought made sense in my head.

Focusing on a niche for the chosen age rage of your audience and to be able to develop the appropriate content that is specifically for those people you have in mind; will help you to ensure there will be a strong interest in your blog contents, in which prompting the blog will make it a whole lot easier as well.

The more ideas of you defining your set target audience. The more easier it will be to identify those people of whom cater to their needs with your content; which will reach out to them with your advertising and marketing messages, drawing them in and possibly go out and spread the word through word of mouth.

The fact that you are targeting marketing or audience. You are identifying your online content to draw in the audience; which can be defined by using one or multiple criteria, or various demographic characteristics. This is by reaching out a large target demographic of the web is relatively easy (much simpler than doing it using traditional advertising practices in the real world). In basic terms of my understanding of it is by using social media, word of mouth and etc. 

The fact all of this sounds so hypocritical of someone who knows what they are doing; I basically don’t know what I’m doing, I just generally swing it and hope for the best really. I recommend not doing that; unless I say so otherwise but it did turn out for the best for me, I rather you do it the proper way first then swing it. 

As there are a lot of competition out there for lots of pique of the same interest on the internet who have inherently the same thing that you want to do online and what your offering. I would recommend carefully design your online marketing efforts to your audience like they haven’t seen the content before and what makes you, you. Just own it basically; own it like someone just went “oh no you didn’t girlfriend to you”, you be like “pow I just kicked your butt girlfriend”. Literally just own them like you have more interesting in that niche than anyone else who’s doing it. 

A strategy with a unique twist that you can put on your blog’s topic and content. People say it’s virtually impossible to plan a totally original topic to blog about. Erm hello! It’s not that hard honestly it really isn’t. Have you read my blogs? I always find a unique twist like nobody knows what hit them; I don’t know what they are talking about really, it’s all beyond me. Instead, of trying to be someone who you want to be. You are you and nobody else; let’s keep it that way shall we, no one can say you can’t say that or you can’t do that. Tell them to shove it where the sun don’t shine. Not literally tell them but it’s okay to say it in your head. You are allowed to express your amazing beautiful unique spin that you will continually develop your innovative content. 

I could of left this blog post as boring as hell if I wanted to; but I decided not to because you guys would be so bored, given up by now reading it if I didn’t put some of my quarks into the whole blog post. I can’t help that I make random comments half way through. I just find it a bit boring of saying do this, do that, it’s your blog beautiful people at the end of the day. You will know what will work and what won’t work. 

As a blogger, you are a unique individual with your own personality and have your own mind. You are capable to set your blog apart from everyone else, with the incorporate your knowledge, voice and personality into your blog. This is one of the easiest ways to set it apart from your competition.

Being a successful blogger you may find that; youcan also set your blog apart by including proprietary information, publishing extremely timely facts or research, or by incorporating your own unique thoughts, ideas, perspective or expertise into each of your blog entries.

Research how other bloggers and website operators are presenting similar information; you may find that bloggers and other website operators may not research the full amount that you can, this can be develop innovative ways to do it better or in a more unique, attention-getting, and memorable way. Meaning that you will need to keep up with constant tabs of what your competition is doing. Along side staying up with the trends that are happening within the blogosphere.

Another important strategy for creating and publishing a successful blog is to find away that you can develop content that isn’t readily available elsewhere in the blogosphere or on the web. I’m going to keep repeating to myself so that I can get this into my head as well; the more unique and innovative you are with the content and the better you target your audience, the easier it will be to build a following.

To be able to add a new content on a regular basis. You must be able to build and maintain a steady audience, regularly when adding new content to your blog. Every new blog entry should cater to your blog’s target audience, offer content that’s perceived as valuable, and build upon previously published content. Basically topping the last blog each time you blog.

A blog to be successful, you must stay on topic and cater to the wants, needs and expectations of your target audience. To be able to do this means by developing a thorough understanding of who your audience is, then adjusting your focus as trends and demands change over time.

Once you set a schedule for posting new content; it’s essential to maintain that schedule, so plan accordingly and don’t be over-ambitious. Like for me for example: I have about 8 major events over the 7 days that I have spread out over the week. When I first started the major events I only started with three; over the time it grew with audience, so they became a regular thing and stayed as a regular house hold name. Then I increased with two more major events along side the three other major events; to which they had started to grow in the way that the other major events have and I brought three more new events who are starting to take shape currently. That’s just how I’ve done it and the other advice you can have is by promising new content once a week then posting twice or three times per week on occasion, as opposed to promising new content daily (or several times daily) and not being able to deliver. Basically what I just said but I did it under major events than one post and so on. 

The fact that your transforming your blog by interacting online with the community; instead of focusing exclusively on the publishing the content to develop your blog into a interactive online community, encourage your audience to post feedback and comments. Which will interact other readers or watchers; to whom will share their ideas and it will enhance your content by added their own information. It’s another best way of researching and listening to other people’s information or shared stories; when you go back to revisit in couple of months or years in advance, you can look into the comments or you have written them down somewhere and you can add a bit more to what you know since you did it the last time. 

Make sure that you have incorporate a “Share” button into each of your blog entries. This will make it very easy for readers to share your content via email, Facebook, Google+, Twitter or LinkedIn. Virtually all the popular blogging platforms offer a widget that makes it easy to integrate a “Share” button into your blog. Doing this can help you build your audience through virtual word-of-mouth. Believe me it’s amazing how far it travels; there’s some countries that I’ve never even heard off, until I look it up on Google to see where it is. Even what’s more interesting is that I have been getting European Union coming to read my blogs; that took me awhile to think isn’t that the European Union, I’m pretty sure that they aren’t a country. It confirmed that I was right European Union were actually the whole world of politics. 

Marketing and promoting your blog continuously is the worlds most pain in the arse thing to do day in day out. Yeah it will take time to build the audience in the hundreds, thousands or millions; it’s the only way you will be able to approach they most typical audiences that you want by ongoing marketing, promoting, and even paid advertising. Many of the world’s most successful bloggers have relied on the mainstream media to generate publicity for their blog to help build an audience. Promoting your blog on an ongoing basis is as important as regularly adding new content.

Keep the blog’s look, overall design and content professional. Always convey a professional image, regardless of the subject matter or your audience. The look and overall design of your blog should be professional, and easy to read and understand.

Also, be sure to edit and proofread your work carefully to avoid or correct any errors. Spelling mistakes or grammatical errors in your blog take away from your credibility and make your blog appear amateurish. I pretty much write mine out on pages or what I have in the technology world but also to write my notes down if necessary when I’m researching.

Gender Identity Quotes Extra 

Just coming back to the revisit of Gender Identity that I have writing couple of weeks ago or just attached it for Vocal Media. I have amazing feedback from people who I have asked and they have commented. I do like to advise that please respect other’s comments about their thoughts and people who are brave enough to come out to talk to me about their experiences.
The fact that I wanted to revisit this article that I had written; we because there are so many young people out there, who are afraid to come out. This is either afraid of being judged, know how strongly about one or both parents feel, or they know in the past that there have been laws about it. I will most likely to re-re-visit in a few months or so if people would like me to come back to this topic. 

The comments so far that I have received so far from people that I have asked around. Please remember respect the people’s opinions and how they see it. One person called Lee has offered to answer any questions if anyone is struggling to come out; or ask for advice, if you have any please contact me through lizzyarrow@outlook.com this is where you can ask your questions and I’ll email them over to him. I will do visa with the response that he has given.

I had known that I was gay since Secondary School (UK meaning); maybe towards the end of college, and told my friends. None of them seemed surprised and all accepted to was normal with no fuss. There wasn’t a clear point at which I knew I was gay but to realise that I had much stronger feelings and attractions towards male models. I did briefly wonder if I was bisexual but I understood quickly that I didn’t have romantic feelings for people of the opposite sex. I have had any negative reactions thankfully.

POLL: SHOULD SCHOOL PROMS BE BANNED?

With school prom season in full swing, recent stats show that the cost of a school prom has risen by 72% over the past five years!Parents are forking out around £500 – with some spending over £1000 – to make it the perfect night for their child with dresses, accessories and shoes, hair and make-up and transport. With a third of grandparents now chipping in to help with the expense, have proms gone too far and should be banned?

Personally I didn’t particularly like my school prom because everyone would vote for each other; I didn’t really enjoy as much but it was just nice to see everyone for the last time, I didn’t really spend so much on my prom dress at the time. Plus none of my friends that I would hang out with at the time didn’t even go, so it was a bit lame to be honest. I found it as for me a closer of some sort because I didn’t particularly like school. 

To be honest why not. You never know when it’s going to be your last; wether you loose a child, a parent or a grandparent you want to see and remember you the way you had the best day of your life. In the recent years lots of children have been taken away from us too soon; parents and grandparents never get a chance to see their children and grandchildren to grow up, to get married and etc. Even with parents and grandparents you never know when it’s their last; it’s just the whole impact of everyone gets a piece of the memory that, they will cherish even when they have gone. 

Even if the child doesn’t get married but they went to the school prom; they get to have that vibe of what it might be like, but also it’s a sense of achievement for the children who may have had a tough year or something that couldn’t of been helped in the way of life. Also it’s not everyday that a child gets so much spent on them; if you think about it, literally think about it for a few moments.

All the celebrities, every royals and rich billionaires get to spend lavish things; parties, holidays and etc because they have the money to do all that everytime and when they want to. Yet banning something that children don’t get a chance to dress up to be a princess or prince, or go to a party thats just all about them and no one else. It’s just wrong. You can’t take away every single thing that makes someone happy; the children will continue to have low esteem, not be happy because some people think its getting to expensive. 

What happens if parents say the riches and etc; “Oh you can’t have that because there are poor people who can’t afford to have a prom because its getting to expensive” you cannot have everything that you want. It’s bad enough that children have to stay on at school or go straight into work after they turn 16. Taking away the rights of somethings like that away not fair.

Yes there maybe some sort of picking on and etc but at the end of the day; people actually change for the best, even if its the prom. I just think that you can’t ban everything and take things away from the children all the time. It’s like saying why don’t you go out and play or go out with your friends or something like that. Yet when something bad happens like terror attacks; kidnappers, grooming and etc coming onto the news. You begin to wonder why they want to stay in because something bad might happen to them. They need to have encouragement for the fact that its okay to go out and have fun no matter what happens

Looking Glass Part 4: The Day They Got Separated

It was time that for the three to be segregated to their new protectors. Which the Native American and Fred had put in place officially. To which the Stacie and James had also a observer each; however they don’t know that, hopefully never will have too. 

It was one full moon the night before the three got separated for good. The Native American Chief’s wife asked “tell me it’s not true Dekota…say it’s just a story that everybody is talking about”. As they both sat round the campfire waiting for some news from one of the observers or Fred to come when to move and help them. They both stared into the fire; as they could see the three triplets playing in the orphanage in the department, knowing that the three of them will soon be forgetting each other very soon. 

The Native American spoke out to his tribe whilst still looking into the fire. “So did you hear the story about the Borthwright Triplets. Like three new pins; just from one womb born the exact same day, how they served that day? Yet did you even know why they will be separated? Yet they not knowing that they will be sharing one name. Until the day they meet each other again. As my wife cried out that night when she found out that she had just lost her best friend.” 

There was a pause. The chief looked around in the midst of his Native Tribe; then the trees had started to be picked up by the winds, something in the wind had caught his eye. Something didn’t really feel right. He couldn’t make it out what it was; something really didn’t sit with him right, everyone knew that something wasn’t right as they too picked it up the sense. He pressed on “Did you hear the mother who wasn’t so cruel; but yet there’s a stone in heart that was placed by no other than the murder himself, then come judge for yourselves how she became to play this part of saving her children.” 

There were was a long pause; until they all crinkled their noses, wondering what could make the camp smell like this. Something brushed up against one of the Native American’s foot making him jump; when he realised that it was a wolf laying low but hurt badly, he watched as the wolf changed back into a human being. The wolf was Tom. To the Native Americans horror that someone that they knew was so badly beaten had come all this way for help; the Native American Chief and his wife quickly stood up, ordered a group of them to bring him into the tepee and get the Native American Tucson the healer of the tribe who should be sleeping. 

In the mist of the Native American Campsite of everyone running around getting things, doing things everything that was possible to save their friend. A man in a small town/village was quite miffed because he had to be somewhere at 7; the time was 6:55pm, as he got in through the door his daughters had come running towards him giving him a hug. Whilst he was try to put his stuff down and head back out of the door; his wife knew he was angry that the train was late today, and it would always comes early or on time. The rules had become a bit tight since the murder of their two friends; she knew her husband wanted to hurt the primeminster one way or another, and along with Fred who was trying to get the disappearance act lifted for those who needed it the most…..
