“Learning From The Old Man and The Starfish…”
Dear friend,
There is a story that I heard long ago that I should tell you about, too.
It may help change a life.
At the first glimmer of light of dawn, a young man walked at the edge of the seashore. There had been a storm the night before, and he knew this would be a good morning to find seashells. With pants rolled up above his ankles, he walked along looking for what treasures he might find.
Then the young man looked up and could barely make out a figure of a very old man ahead of him. The young man watched as the old man bent down to pick up an object from the sand, and toss it into the surf. As he got closer, and the light of morning began to turn the sand pink, he…

I feel, no matter how dire a situation, hope is the key.

Murder of journalist

November 9, 2017

Brave Journalists and Reporters: Writing for TRUTH

The intimidation, threatening or worse … murder of investigative journalists is a major threat to all our democracies.

Those on the frontline, delving into the exposure of criminals and their devious, nefarious or subversive behaviour, must be able to do their chosen job free of revenge and retaliation.

Trump can be given a lot of credit for undermining the vital job of journalists and media whose prime function is to give oversight, insight and illumination into the wicked ways of the filthy rich, obscenely famous, insatiably greedy and those with agendas designed to control and dominate our basic freedoms.

Punishment for those killing the messengers and whistleblowers must be stiffened to ensure we, and journalists are not cowed by cowards and those paying them to do their hit jobs.
