Sacrificial mass ceremony of handicapped children

It should never cross your mind that human sacrifice of babies and kids targeted healthy members of the community: They could Not afford it for survival

It is the deformed and handicapped babies that were sacrificed in mass ceremony in order to alleviate parents gilt and tame the intrangisance of mothers in front of the pressure of the community

I dare believe that after the sacrifice, monster orgies were organized intended to grieving mothers.
Mothers had the opportunity to have another go for children, before they sink into a long period of lethargy and apathy.

The pressure of community is palpable in societies were mobility is minimal or settling in other regions of a Nation is Not an easy decision for lack of laws and facilities to integrate.

Literature map of the world?

What makes books so powerful is that they can let you sample other cultures and experiences you’ll never get to have in your own life.

With that in mind, do you want to expand your reading world a bit?

Maybe you want to move away from just Harry Potter/The Da Vinci Code/The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and all those other books everyone else is reading on their morning commute?

Every country is represented by (arguably) the most famous or important book from that country.

Obviously, making those distinctions is going to lead to some disagreements.

For Russia, War and Peace has been chosen, but it could have easily been several of Dostoevsky’s works.

The UK has Pride and Prejudice, which is obviously a important book, but we’re sure some people will be saying it should have been Dickens or Shakespeare.

And let’s be honest, Spain should really be represented by Don Quixote, not Carlos Ruiz Zafón’s middlebrow bestseller Shadow of the Wind.

But what makes the map really cool, is when it gets to places like Africa, South America and Asia.

We all know the classics of Western Literature, but had you heard of I Am a Taxi by Deborah Ellis, or Sony Labou Tansi’s “The Antipeople”?
Note: I reviewed extensively many books from authors of many countries and languages and translated the reviews in English. Select the category “Book Review” in my blog


My visit back to where “Across the Land” really started

I left the intensive care unit and ended up 59 miles north of home.

I’ve never been able to figure out what led me to Amicalola Falls, but I remember standing at the bottom of the falls, that afternoon, and looking up and telling myself “one day you will run up those stairs”

I did run up those stairs. I went to the park as often as possible. I wasn’t doing well managing my life. Everything took a back seat to improving my health. I lost, in total, 118 lbs.

I didn’t know it at the time, but I was training for an Epic Journey.

From June 1, 2012 until today, April 1, 2017, I have ran, jogged or walked almost 17,000 miles to raise awareness concerning alzheimer’s disease and raise money for the Alzheimer’s Association.

I visited the park yesterday, and today for a few hours.

I saw old friends, and made new ones. I relived some of the past. I rarely make it there anymore. I am a caregiver for my 88 year old mom.

The kindness exhibited to me from park personal is a big part of my story at Amicalola.

Note: I am also a caregiver for my 88 year-old mom. As I was for my late 88 year-old father. And I had no state support while out of work. Are retired children doomed Not to enjoy their life anymore?
