Memorial For Baby Wang Yue (Yueyue) Of China, 2 Year Old Victim Of Hit & Run

October 24, 2011 By: Lynn Category: National News, Relationships

A Memorial for Baby Wang Yue (Yueyue) of Guangzhou Foshan China, the 2 year old of the tragic hit and run last week, have been held in several cities to remember the life of this precious child.
 
Since Yueyue’s passing, a candlelight vigil took place at Nanhua University in Hengyang, Hunan.  Throughout China mourners have held vigils and impromptu memorials to commemorate her passing.

It was reported by one of the local newspapers that 200 or so people gathered in the market where Yueyue’s life was cut short.  The local people were handing out hugs, to declare war on apathy and cold-heartedness.1 minute moment of silence was observed, before a pledge was read by the gathered mourners to make a difference and be less indifferent towards others:

“That one moment of coldness spread across the country and became everyone’s wound,” the group shouted.”If it were you or me on that day, we would have at least stopped and pulled her aside. We would at least have lent a helping hand to ask for help, call the police and protect her.

“We will not complain about the powerless legal system or degraded morality … Starting with me, we will spread warmth around and drive away cold-heartedness.”

Typically as time goes on, a pledge like this will be forgotten and life as we know it will go on.  But for now, the freshness of Yueyue’s passing is bringing to light the difference a little compassion can make.  Time will tell if the mourners and residents in Foshan and others affected by her loss will make good on their pledges to be more caring towards strangers.

Writers Block…

March 07, 2010 By: Lynn Category: Relationships

So I haven’t posted anything for a long time because I have a massive writers block!! I have no idea what to do…..I have read other articles, with the hopes to stimulate my mind, or to see a topic that hits my fancy, but nothing! And I feel super bad about it, I want to write, but I’m not one of those bloggers that like to share my everyday life (you’d thank me, it’s pretty boring) because I like to talk opinion.

So I am going to post a question again!  I hope you play along.  My question is do you remember your first kiss?  This could take some people back aways, but I don’t think that anyone really forgets their first kiss, so how old were you and what was it like?  Was it what you thought it would be?

My first kiss was in the summer, it was a beautiful night. I was dating this well know fella, I thought he was cool because he drove a Monte Carlo.  I figured if he had a vehicle he was the man.  It was an awkward moment because I was 18 years old (very late bloomer) and I knew that he expected it and yet it was suppose to be a very special moment to me. So he leaned in and bang, it was over, I was happy that my first kiss was over, but I didn’t think that I was suppose to have saliva all over my face!!  lol.  So needless to say, my first kiss wasn’t all it was cracked up to be!!  Don’t worry though, others made up for it!!  haha

So do you remember you your first kiss?  How old were you?  And what was it like?

What Do You Think Of Jake Pavelka Picking Vienna? And Rejecting Tenley? The Bachelor: On The Wings Of Love

March 01, 2010 By: Lynn Category: Feelings, Frustrated, Love, My Views, Relationships

Well as you all might know, the Bachelor: On The Wings Of Love, has come to a close and I am so sad to see this reality show  go off the air. 

I can honestly say that I am in love with Jake and Tenley!  I could watch their life from a distance forever!  Tenley seems to be the perfect woman.  It actually makes me teary eyed to watch such a display of affection and love put out there and in the end be broken hearted.  She has so many fine qualities, she is passionate and without a shadow of a doubt in love with Jake.

I am sad and equally hurt that I have invested so much of my heart into this show, for Tenley to be rejected at the end!  She has so much poise and honour.  What a wonderful woman, I thoroughly hope that she will be the next bachelorette.  I feel like I’ve just been dumped.

 

Vienna has been controversial, and in most cases I would rally to support her because she appears to be the underdog.  But in this case, I think that he needs to use ration and not only the physical attraction.  And in the end he chose her.  Do you believe that it was lust over love, or do you think that he gave her the appropriate benefit of doubt?  And went with his heart?  What do you think of him picking Vienna? 

What would you say to Tenley to reassure her that the world has fallen in love with her and that she will make someone happy?

 

What do you think of Ali being the next Bachelorette? 

Leave a comment, I want to hear what you think.

 

PS. Don’t forget to watch Jason Mesnick & Molly Malaney’s wedding next Monday March 8, 2010 at 9:00PM.

UPDATE:  Small clip from Tenley being on the Ellen DeGeneres Show today.
