Holy Week

With Stephen's permission, I am writing to you in hope to get your attention. We've been talking about how we want to voice our beliefs in making this world a better place to live in.

Before I begin to discuss our goals, I would like to emphasize that I had nothing to do with Stephen linking me or Jeremy on his post. Stephen feels the importance in introducing his visitors to real people. Jeremy is one of them, he is deaf, confined in wheelchair since birth. Despite his bad english writings, and disability, he is a real person with feelings. Just like many other handicapped people, they can cry, laugh, and express themselves. They can just do pretty much almost everything as we can do.

Maybe they cannot walk like us, but they can move around with the assistance of wheelchair or walkers. They may not be able to hear, but they can see. They may not be able to see but they can feel, and hear things. It's us people that take things for granted in this world. We tend to look down on these people thinking that we are better than them. There is no such a thing as imperfection in my opinion. I truly believe that we all are created perfect in God's eyes regardless of any flaws that we might possess.

Stephen and I were talking about how people can be so intimidated by handicapped people. We both wish that people would stop being so judgmental, and help one others. There are too many people lacking compassion in this society. It is our duty to figure out a way to reach out to everyone, and be an example of what a good person should be. We may not be rich, nor somebody famous, but we are real. We have feelings, and have the dreams to make this world a better place. I was thinking of how we can do that. I've told Stephen that in order for us to help one others, we must start within ourselves. Take a good look in the mirror, and see if there is anything that needs to be fixed first. We cannot help other people if we are not taking good care of ourselves.

The problem with this society is that people tend to take things for granted. They tend to fight for power, money, and fame that they forget that life is not all about that. Life is about how you make it, and how you give one others of yourself, and the love that you give. Love should be unconditional, and free. Love is the best gift of all. Not everyone is fortunate to know what love is. In order to know love, you must have compassion, and respect for one others.

It is the INJUSTICE in this world that angers us. We strive to make a difference in our world. We want to make our world a better place to live, but we cannot do it alone. We need your help in any way you can provide. We would appreciate whatever you can afford to give, or free time to volunteer. In order for us to succeed in carrying out our plan to make this world a better place, we need more helping hands.

There are many children without wheelchairs because their families are too poor to afford one. Believe me, I would know, because I am living with Jeremy, and his wheelchair is not so cheap. It costs over 4,000 dollars just for basic wheelchair that is comfortable enough to last a whole day in. There was this 6 years old boy that his poor family struggled to pay 10 thousand dollars for a special custom wheelchair, and it got stolen by some gang. I thought it was so downright cruel. Why can't people just respect our things instead of seeing our things as "valuable" stuff. Just because we paid for certain things that we need to get around does not mean that we are rich or whatever. Speaking of charities, there are programs that you can help donate money to where they will provide the needs to handicapped children around the world. You can make a huge difference in a person's life by being a giver without expecting anything in return.

Stephen asked me to please ask you to please give support to the Flying Monkeys space, he was saddened that no one gives a frank to visit it and leave comments. Please do not be rude not to leave a comment. Please take a minute out of your busy schedule to visit and pay your respect. There are people that working hard to make Flying Monkeys space a good place to go to. The problem is that people tend to be judgemental like people don't bother to visit Jeremy's space because of his poor english writing or nonsense pictures, but he is a real person with feelings! People don't stop and think that maybe Jeremy gets hurt whenever he checks his stats to see who came into his space, and realize no one bothered to leave a comment not even to say "Hi"! It hurts me to see Jeremy get hurt, but that's the real world. I don't care if no one visits my space, I don't consider myself to be important, but I would appreciate it very much if you would please respect Stephen enough to visit the links that he put up on his posts. Please have a heart.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by and read this post. Have a good one!
