Critical Moments in the Crossfire
I don’t think I really appreciated the enormity of what was about to happen before I set off to Northern Ireland with four fellow XL Life Members (Molly Bedingfield, Michelle Clarke, Vivienne Connery and Christine Chandler) which would put us in the presence of the Great Spiritual leader of Tibet, the Dalai Lama. The two alternative spellings for our charming and welcoming destination, Derry/Londonderry, account for the Catholic and Protestant halves of the population that suffered much during ‘The Troubles’ before the ceasefire. ‘The Walled City’, as many now call it to avoid offence, was the scene of the harrowing events of ‘Bloody Sunday’ on January 30, 1972, when 26 civil rights protesters were shot by members of the 1st Battalion of the British Parachute Regiment. It saw too many other tragedies during the conflict.Are Russian People Europeans Or Asiatics?
It is a difficult and old question. A lot of people have been disputing about it. European and Asiatic cultures are mixed very much there and nobody can tell exactly. One famous man said: “Russian people behave like Asiatics in Europe and like Europeans in Asia”.In The Name Of Humanity
Do we feel the pain or even think about these poor human beings? How can some people sleep, in the face of this “genocide”?Georgia’s Independence – Why We Should Care
We should care deeply about the freedom to decide our fate. Don’t the Georgians have that option? They declared their independence when the old Soviet Union dissolved.

I have written recently in my blog about the case of Cher Lyn Tomayko. She had for years been on the FBI’s most wanted list for abducting her child and bringing her to Costa Rica against a court order that the child remain in the U.S. Recently Costa Rica granted her refugee status in the face of U.S. demands for her extradition.TV Rules For Democracy to Rule
Television, the most powerful means of communication, is actually a tool used by the “global powers” to change mankind’s lifestyle and belief systems. In some ways positively, but these are very few & far between. On the whole, we are being brainwashed through TV to change our lifestyles into that which is wanted by these global powers, into that which we see on TV. Advertising & marketing is touched on, how it affects our lives and our pockets. Do television & advertising rule, or can we, the consumer, choose to rule. Can we set the prices in the retail market to those which we are willing and prepared to pay? The question remains,” can we do something about it, do we want to, or do we just let it go on influencing our everyday lives?” How free do you think you are? You may be shocked to learn the truth.Dangerous Neighbors
Crime in Mexico has grown so much that thousands of rich Mexicans are migrating to the US. They lived in fear of being killed, kidnapped, or both. The government is unable to control well organized gangs who roam the large cities in search of prey. The Mexican army has been deployed, but its inept generals, often corrupt, cannot protect ordinary citizens.AIDS Issue in Africa
Sub-Saharan Africa is more heavily affected by HIV and AIDS than any other region of the world. An estimated 22 million people were living with HIV at the end of 2007 and approximately 1.9 million additional people were infected with HIV during that year.

Most children in Africa are in need of help and some of them live only on hand outs or donations and help offered by good Samaritans (unicef.org). Without help some of the children’s lives are truly heart braking. Let me walk you through some of the ways in which you can probably lend a hand in helping children in Africa.5 Ways on How to Help Poverty Victims in Africa
