SENNA KNEW WINNING ISN’T EVERYTHING

July 22, 2015

Sport for Peace: Sport Transcending Boundaries

Senna loved winning too, of course: he was obsessed by it as champions are. But what separates him is that he came to realise there was more to life – and that is why people are making films about him today. He had the visionary mystique to know in a world of plenty you do not have to have ‘have-nots’ to have ‘haves’.

His trainer Josef Leberer told me: “During my first year with Ayrton we were driving through Sao Paulo when we saw a favela and I asked how he felt when he saw these people. He said it was very hard for him and it hurt a lot, but that you have to be powerful to effect any real change and he was not there yet.

Ahmed’s Gift of Life

July 21, 2015

“The world is full of suffering…
yet it is also filled with the overcoming of it.”

I (We) Must Not Hate!

Ahmed Khatib’s death was tragically unexceptional: the 12-year-old Palestinian was shot by Israeli soldiers while holding a toy gun. But what happened next was not. The boy’s parents donated his organs to six Israelis. They tell Chris McGreal why their decision was a gesture of both peace and resistance

A ‘Review’ of the Film: ‘CATCH A FIRE’ and Sharing a few Thoughts on Forgiveness

Touching The Rainbow (Rainbows): A new Book

from https://weforgive.wordpress.com/2015/07/19/a-review-of-the-new-film-catch-a-fire-and-sharing-a-few-thoughts-on-forgiveness/

I think it’s vitally important to understand the mind of a person. Another important message in the story is how good people can often do bad things and the reader gets inside the soul of a man, who wanted to do good and yet preserve the status quo of the ruling regime – to protect the institutions and history of the country. The plots interweave, the two men living on different sides of the fence – both who love their families and their country equally; it’s just that they have a completely different view of their country and visions for its future. The story not only shines a light on South Africa’s past, but tells us something about the present and how one man’s freedom fighter can be another’s terrorist. (It just depends upon ones perspective). So, by only looking to history, we always find something, a…

To the End of the Rainbow (THE END)

TO THE END OF THE RAINBOW: A New "Work" by Craig Lock

SPLENDOUR (THE END)

The two bitter adversaries, sworn enemies for so many years clasped and shook hands, firmly; then embraced each other warmly. They raised each others hands to the heavens. Resplendent were the bright beams of forgiveness for past deeds, evil deeds and grace that shone forth.

And overhead, gently breaking over the pitch black horizon, in grandiose splendour, the golden early morning sun announced the coming of a beautiful new day…one filled with great insight and brilliant light in a new glorious dawn. Resplendent in the bright glory of God, a bright morning star overhead to guide these two leaders of the twentieth century and their lives .. forever.resplendent in the bright glory of God, a bright morning star to guide him and his life… forever

“The Pen is Mightier Than The Sword”

Write (Writing) in the Zone

Words, once they are printed, have a life of their own.”
–Carol Burnett
From Graffiti to Great Literature, All Writing is Important to Someone!
“The power of the pen has not diminished. It is an age-old way to escape, pour out emotions, play with ideas, give meaning to the world and also entertain. ALL writing is important and the power of the pen will stay strong until the end.”

THE PEN IS MORE POWERFUL THAN THE SWORD
WHAT you write can have far-reaching consequences,
