#3000chairs Stand Up for the child refugees of Syria

Blogizing attempt of an 'empty chair'

Jackie Morris, an artist and writer has started a campaign on twitter #3000chairs based upon this story of a Syrian child refugee: one day a child refugee visited a local school to join in a lesson, the teacher told the child he could not stay as there was no chair for them to sit. The next day the child returned with a broken chair and asked “can I stay now”.

These children have been torn away from their families, whilst having to leave their own country due to war. I feel ashamed that our government voted against taking these child refugees. If they have no parents then who will care for them? It does not matter where these children are from….they are our children. We have one world…and we are all the same. Human beings! STAND UP and join in this awareness raising campaign #3000chairs. Draw or paint your own, or share the story or write a letter to your MP…whatever you choose let’s make a difference to our children’s future.

March: Blogizing’s Favourite Site – Ocean of Compassion

I have decided to choose a different blogging site each month to showcase on Blogizing.  The reason I have decided to do this is because they are so amazing in their own right, but for some they go unnoticed.  This particular site has come to me at just the right time.  I am in need of some guidance as I feel at the moment I am in a period of my life when everything is being broken down and stripped away.  I am a believer that this has to happen in order to let in the new and make way for better things, as well as giving you the time for personal and spiritual growth.

Imagine my surprise when I came across a site (with thanks to the author who has on occasions commented upon my own blog) and this site includes some free e-books.  One of them being Transforming Suffering into the Ultimate Healing.  Wow I thought, this is no coincidence that I have ended up here.  http://gedepramascompassion.files.wordpress.com/2013/09/transforming-suffering-into-the-ultimate-healing-1.pdf

Gede Prama offers this site with its treasure of spiritual wisdom and encouragement.  I would urge anyone to take a look as I believe there is something here for everyone:  Ocean of Compassion

 

My favourite post by Gede is ‘Transforming Anger into Flower’, it makes absolute sense to me and it is lovely to be able to get clarification sometimes in life!

Enjoy my friends.
