Christmas Eve © Emily Obama

It was the night before Christmas and all were asleep
No one made a noise, not even a peep.
The little tikes slept, all tucked in their beds.
With pictures of St. Nick whirling about in their heads.
A little boy waited for old St. Nick.
And all of the sudden he heard the snap of a stick.
A sound out of doors made the boy jump.
He looked out the window and saw St. Nick on a stump.
The young boy looked with his eyes all aglow.
At the man dressed in red standing out in the snow.
He tip-toed out of his room and down the hall.
He saw old St. Nick putting out presents and all.
He watched very quietly peeking through a crack in the door.
He shifted positions and heard the creak of the floor.
The jolly man turned and through his white beard smiled.
They just stood there and stared at each other a while.
St. Nick whispered, "Merry Christmas to you."
The young lad smiled and said, "And the same to you."
The jolly man went to the roof with a thump.
The boy looked out the window and saw him land on the stump.
St. Nick flew away calling, "Ho, ho, ho!"
And the little boy looked and saw only the snow.
He looked at the tree and saw presents there.
And then he knew that he might need to share.
He told his parents of his night in the morning.
Smiling they replied, "You were only dreaming, darling."

12 Years Passed, Memories of Pain and Loss Still Filter Through Our Pines, Let's Mour, and Plan for A Smater Future...

image credit:
today is one day apart from September eleventh, 2013, around 12 years from 9/11 in 2001, when terrorists attacked New York City Twin Towers and killed thousands of innocent people, today, we recall our past and mourn those who died due to the rise of evil power and the persistence of American patriotism and freedom, let's not forget this important event, pray to those who suffered and those family members or relatives who survived but felt the pain of loss...we shall cherish more about the peace, love, and daily comfort we have today, Thanks to former president George Walker Bush and his efforts, thanks to our military soldiers who fight and continue to battle for our beloved country, God bless America! 
The poem below has nothing to do with 9/11, but is is a sad reality check to highlight even today, hunger, natural disasters, and ignorance, they still post as threats to our everyday living and faith, we must act by being a good citizens first, encourage our friends, people we know to love peace, and stop violence and indifference to children and to  those who are needy...Thanks for reading...Bless You All! 
it's hard to describe how I feel right now
I want to explain it but I don't know how
I cannot believe it comes to this
it's our world, not just his
no matter how hard we try
the man can never hear us cry
we could scream and yell
but he is in his heaven while we're in our hell
The little boy wants his acceptance
but the man keeps his distance
the little boy has so many "whys?"
but the man won't open his eyes
The little girl just wants her dad
but the man doesn't understand
the little girl just wants to be kissed and hugged
but all the man does is shrug
The woman just wants him
But the light is getting dim
She loves him with all her heart
But the man keeps tearing it apart
no matter how hard we try
he can never hear us cry
we could scream and yell
but he is in his heaven while we're in our hell
I want to know one more thing
with my last bit of strength
is this it? is this the end?

YOUR Help Is Wanted For Josie Nordman at Nu: Please Give Your Best To Josie Mordman Today...

As you might have observed, Tigers roar, Rabbits hop, Oxes or Buffaloes plow the fields,
Dragons spray fires, and snakes eliminate harmful insects or animals under corps, ...every living being on earth has its unique place, they exist for a good and perfect reason, and only if we respect nature and promote green earth, less polluted air, and clean water or safe seas, then we feel safe, happy, and at ease. 

Humans are advanced animals, we differ from pets or wild animals,  because we can speak, write, dream, and make technology and science our TOOLS in reaching a more comfortable level of living.
Every child is born equal, and every boy and girl is supposed to be happy and fulfill one's dreams.

 We all seek comfort and happiness from our parents, family or relatives, including friends or is very sad that, at times, we are hit by sudden sadness which is unexpected, getting a serious disease is sad, this happens to a college student whose dreams are not much different from you and me...

I happen to know a glimpse of Josie Nordman (see her above on top) who is attending northwestern university...she has a surgery today at university of chicago medical center, and needs donations...

 $2, $5, $7, or $10, any ammount will help the accumulation toward the total goal...please email or call The Daily Northwestern paper for further information on how you can help this good and promising girl for her recovery, strength, and hope for a brighter future...Thank YOU in advance.

Ps: Also see the below report from the university newspaper...cheers!

Updated: Josie Nordman to undergo lung transplant surgery
Patrick Svitek, Summer Editor
July 27, 2013

Rising Communication junior Josie Nordman is scheduled to undergo lung transplant surgery tonight, possibly capping months of fundraising by the Northwestern community for the life-saving operation.

"I cannot believe this day is finally here," Nordman said at about 8:30 p.m. in a Facebook post. "I will go into surgery in a few hours to have a lung transplant, and begin the next chapter of my life."

Nordman, who was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis when she was 4 months old, was placed on the lung transplant list in December. Her lungs are only 16 percent functional due to the disease.
Since the beginning of the year, dozens of student organizations have raised thousands of dollars for Nordman's lung transplant fund. Her family has said they will have to pay up to $75,000 for the procedure.

Nordman's surgery is slated for about 11 p.m. at the University of Chicago Medical Center, according to her mom, Nicolle Nordman.
Ally Mutnick contributed reporting.

Poetry On Children and The Joy Of Having Them....Happy June First!

My Precious Child

The greatest gift we will ever know
is a child, born to love and grow.
Conception is a miracle in itself;
the start of new life and good health.

Such a treasure your precious child is,
who will thrive on every hug and kiss.
Hold them close and sing them songs;
they will only be a child for so long.

They may not always smell pure and sweet,
a dirty diaper or a dampened sheet.
But with a loving cuddle and a beautiful smile,
the joys of parenthood are all worth while.
"Thank you Lord for our precious child."

Nature's Child

A Young Child Lived On Mountains High
Each Morning She Touched The Smiling Sky.
The Clouds Were White, The Sky Was Clean.
Her Mountain Home Was a Beautiful Scene.

One Darken Day The Weather Grew Warm.
Their Heavy Clouds Produced A Storm.
Harsh Rains Caused The Child To Sicken.
She Became ill And Seriously Stricken.

Alone On The Mountain Without Assistance
Her Illness Grew With Deadly Persistence.
The Mountains Heard Her Feeble Cry.
Something Must Be Done Or She Will Die.

The Mountain Beacons White Clouds Of High
To Offer Assistance And To Quickly Try.
The Clouds Then Formed A Massive Arrow.
Pointing To The Child, Straight And Narrow.

The Cloud Arrow Was Seen By Mountaineers.
It Took Them To The Child, Then Disappears.
They Treated The Child And Made Her Well.
As They Cast Away Her Sickly Spell.

Her Health Returned As She Kissed The Sky.
And Caressed The Clouds That Paraded By.
How Did She Survive This Test Of The Wild ?
The Answer Is Simple,
She Is Natures Child!
