Doing his Part for Peace through Education

by Madelyn Griffith-Haynie, CTP, CMC, ACT, MCC, SCAC
Part of the What Kind of World do YOU Want? series

A very young relative of one of my favorite TBI Advocates** has started blogging.  I have great admiration the intellectual courage of the young!

Were we ALL so brave once?

  • It seems that his first language is not English.  His blog, however, is in English.
  • He is eleven years old, and is allowing himself to learn about blogging “on the fly.”
  • He is willing to risk reaching out to ask for help – and for American readers.

I visited intially to encourage his efforts, simply because I like to do that sort of thing.

After reading one of his posts I began to think that he had a real talent for communication that I would really like to see him develop.

Then I read What happened ifhis post describing a story through the eyes of his religious background  — and I began to believe that his voice had the potential to change our world-view and, by extension, our world.

Boys like this hold the future of our planet in their hands.  Let’s ALL take a little bit of time to fan their flames — starting here, starting now.

Take a moment of YOUR life to take a look at hasnainrez.   Click his rating stars, “like” the posts you read, help spread his voice, and be SURE to leave a comment so he knows you were there.

It takes a village to transform a world! ~ mgh

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Firefox, it looks
    fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    awesome blog!

    • THANKS for letting me know! I am aware of a “bubble under plastic” browser problem – some days like your experience, sometimes its exact opposite, and some days nothing much works very well. VERY frustrating and, so far, unfixable.

      I believe it to be a problem with glitches in the way in which the WordPress.com site functions – I have been back and forth with “The Happiness Engineers” over browser problems since I first created ADDandSoMuchMore.com. (since I don’t charge for content or the considerable time I spend researching info & getting articles online), I must blog on a free platform. I’d move if I could fund it.

      After spending A TON of time I didn’t have (none of which really changed anything — at least not for long, since every WordPress “improvement” seems to bring new problems with it), I’ve had to make friends with doing my best and praying that it works.

      You should see what it’s like from MY end!

      Anyway, I’m sorry it’s frustrating for you, and thanks so much for the heads-up. I’m glad you find the content useful none-the-less, and thanks for the acknowledgment.

      xx,
