Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


The Courage To Love

I watched it and I just couldn't help bawling the whole time.

I"m very strong-willed and I have no idea how I'd have survived being in slavery.  If you get a chance, definitely watch it.

  1. This looks like something I would enjoy watching. I'll have to look this up. :)

  2. Colette, our history and that of some other countries has the misfortune of many atrocities against mankind. I am appalled at some of the things we have done and had done to us. I would probably cry too. Being part of a bi-racial family I am often caught up in the injustices of it all and frustrated by the ignorance.

    Take care and God bless!
