“You’re not disabled (limited) by your disabilities, you are able (enabled) by your abilities.”

“Inform, educate, inspire”

THE BOOK ‘Bismarck, Dorsetshire and Memories’

In an unassuming town in the English countryside in 1943, a New Zealander quietly made history by becoming the first female commander of a British spy base.

Until now, she has remained unnoticed by history, flying under the radar for 76 years.

Today, British spy agency GCHQ released details of her work as part of commemorations of its 100-year anniversary.Wellington-raised Pamela Pigeon, was the UK’s highest-ranking female spy officer and commanded a unit of radio operators who formed a network which played a pivotal role in sinking the infamous German battleship Bismarck.

Life and Life Lessons

Today, everyone lauds the most incredible creations in the world – the teachers. When the Lord breathed life to teachers, His masterpieces, He knew that He was giving life to the caretakers of humanity.

Teachers deserve our praises and should not be for this single day only. Saying a simple thank you, which is not often received by teachers, would go a long way and would be enough to move them to tears.

Teaching is never easy. Oh yeah, one might contend that there is never an easy profession. Aside from having deep knowledge of the subject matter, it takes a bunch of commitment, enthusiasm, and passion to be able to touch and change lives through meaningful education. I say, it is never easy to bring love of learning in the classroom and to make a difference in the students’ lives.

Truth be told, teachers have the hefty obligation of…

Adaptive rock climber Craig deMartino

October 23, 2019

“THE JOURNALIST “… REVEALING AND INTERESTING "INTERVIEWS"

full_craig_6Craig deMartino was a professional rock climber who nearly lost his life in an accident 17 years ago, when he was dropped 30 metres from a rock ledge – breaking almost every bone in his body.  18 months later, he decided to amputate his right leg below the knee in order to be able to return to climbing. Craig has notched up a number of records – including becoming the first amputee ascent of Yosemite’s El Capitan in under 24 hours. But his focus now is very much on inspiring others with physical disabilities to get active again and to live with their trauma in a different way. He’s written a book about his journey called After the Fall, and is the subject of a recent short film called Craig’s Reaction.
