I hadn’t really planned to write anything today. I thought about writing about the Chilean miners…fantastic news piece…but everyone knows about it. I couldn’t be happier for them and their families and it was a very uplifting story…not the usual gloom and doom you hear in the news. It’s also Blog Action Day. Everyone is writing about water. I didn’t sign up…why? I’m not sure. I couldn’t get inspired to write anything about water. Maybe it’s because we’re so spoiled here in Canada with beautiful clean water…except for the Great Lakes…well, maybe there is a blog post there. I’ll have to think about it. It’s only 9:30 am here. I’ve got the whole day.
I was, however, pleased to receive a simple email this morning from fellow blogger, Gabriela, pointing me to a story she had written. I had seen the story on her blog several weeks ago but the translation from Spanish to English hadn’t captured the depth of the story. I was so happy to see that she had translated it for Rammenas and I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to pass it along to all of you. As a mother or a son or daughter, I will guarantee you will find this story heartwarming. Excellent writing, Gabriela. I hope to see more!
