Just in case you missed these, today I'm going to “shine my spotlight” on a few of the very special posts I've come across the past few weeks.
On February 20th, 2015, 1000-plus bloggers and videographers came together to raise their voices for compassion; each sharing a post about caring and compassion on that day. I was honored to be a part of this campaign with my post, Eight Questions About Compassion #1000Speak.
For more inspiring posts, just search the hashtag #1000Speak.
PRI's Across Women's Lives campaign is highlighting women's and girl's issues, and global issues of gender equality all year long. Bloggers are joining in the conversation by writing and sharing posts using the hashtag #womenslives.
The post, Who Is Farzana Parveen? (by my friend Rena from thediaryofanalzheimerscaregiver.com) is a sad and chilling account of the death of a young woman. It illustrates the inability to make choices for themselves, that some women still experience. Like Rena, I continued to think about this story long after I finished reading it.
In addition to the two important campaigns mentioned above, I read many other posts this week that I found very moving.
Here are just a few of them. (Just click on the numbered post titles, to view each post):
I was so happy to see that my friend Lana, from twoteensandtheirmama.com wrote about the website lovehasnolabels.com this week. I had intended to write about it as well, but her post is so well worded, I am happy to just share it. Be sure to watch the video, which is linked within her post!
This post, published on Catharsis, resonated with me on so many levels. It represents the risks we all take as we explore new ventures, the many rewards of blogging, and the different forms of communication and levels of comfort that we can experience as we relate to other people.
Elephant's Child, one of my favorite blogs written "Down Under," provides a weekly collection of photos labeled “Sunday Selections.” The pictures in this post last week showed a real flotilla of paper boats. These triggered my memory of pictures in the book Curious George Rides a Bike which I loved when I was small.
I clearly remember trying to follow the directions for making paper boats from the pages of a newspaper - and the pictures of the little monkey floating a whole fleet of newspaper boats on a lake or river.
As much as I love the drawings in this book by H.A. Rey, the real-life photos of
paper boats on the blog Elephant's Child are even more impressive!
I think you will enjoy following all the links to these interesting posts.
