Imagine the Fear in Pakistan

Kashmir, beautiful mountains, valleys, and loving people are being threatened by India and war is potentially looming. Why does a simple area have such a volatile situation happening to it? Greed, India wants the fertile lands for its self and Pakistan wants to keep this area as part of their country. There is no reason for this war to take place. India needs to go back into its own country and leave this area alone. There has been a struggle over this area since 1947 and now it is escalating again.

There are jets flying over and dropping bombs to frighten the people into surrendering the  region. It is a terrible horrifying situation. What’s to stop them from attacking other border cities. The fear is real. Pay attention to the news this less often mentioned struggle is brewing and should be watched closely.

Yesterday two jets were shot down over the area and Pakistan closed its air space to keep marauding Indians from attacking again. The pilots in one plane died in the crash and one other pilot was captured alive while the fourth was taken to a hospital for care. The region of Kashmir should not have to cower in fear from jets flying overhead potentially to drop bombs on the citizens.  Not to mention the mortars being shot over the country lines to keep the Kashmir citizens afraid.

I am sure that the people in Pakistan feel the same fear we did on 9/11 when the skies became an instrument of terror.  My heart breaks for these innocent people as war creeps closer and closer to them through no fault of their own. Remember these people in your thoughts and prayers. They have to fear for the lives of their children.

Review: A Peculiar School by J. Schlenker



A Peculiar School 

J. Schlenker (Goodreads Author)



Vicki Turner Goodwin‘s review

Feb 09, 2019


It was an amazing read. 


This is the most curious tale of animals written in their own voice that I have read. I enjoyed meeting Owen, Theodore, luce, and Ethel as well as all the other carefully woven characters. The writing is crisp and thought-provoking. With characters that range from earthy to genius, each is well examined by Schlenker.
J has a way of creating an entire world for her animals that is both real and fantastic. I wanted to know more about these guys. An excellent read with heart and intelligence.

Little did she know, that one day she would find out I truly struggled with Mania.  Does that make me a maniac? I hope not, but it probably does.

The overpowering sensation of being stopped at a red light and hearing the car behind you closing in with brakes squealing and no chance of stopping before it hits you. screeching That sinking feeling in your stomach that means doom is on the horizon and there is not a darn thing you can do to stop it.
