Disorders of life?
It is a prominent thing in our society to feel that we need to have a label for what is happening to us. Is it so uncommon to hear that he has Cancer, she has Down Syndrome, my child suffers from ADHD, his children are both Autistic, I have Asthma, […]
No place for love in faith
Walking comfortably through the silent night on the paved sidewalk back towards his house, Tim abruptly halted and looked at the strange scene in front of him. The street lamps lit the area very well and a person could easily see what was happening all around the neighborhood. James, his friend and […]
Truth for Children?
So, here arrives a being on earth. They are born from a mother and father or via artificial insemination. These children are planned or not, loved or not(although it may seem strange that parents cannot love their children, it happens). This little being arrives on this earth totally relying on […]
