Peace and Justice Award


The Peace and Justice Award:
I have been awarded by the lovely “Die Trying”, a fellow Cut-Throat Club Survivor and resident clubhouse writer, with the Peace and Justice Award for my blog.
I must admit, I am not Batman; the driving force beneath this blog was not consciously fueled by such topics…however, it has come to my own attention through blogging here that the concepts of Justice and Peace are two that live very near to my heart from one moment to the next. This realization has shaken me a little – as I am a very simple creature: just trying to be and let be, just struggling to survive. I suppose my piece of Peace comes in the form of the void that is defined with nearly every post I make to my blog; the sense of injustice and robbery and stolen futures is undeniable and quite strong here. I guess I just find it difficult to get my head around the true concept of justice anymore, as what it’s meant to mean and stand for, at least. The injustice that has come to accompany every day’s sunrise weighs so heavily on my heart and mind that it’s hard to breathe around the anchor’s mass sometimes.
In regard to this award, I am just glad to know that, at least if nothing else – my perpetual search for justice has been noticed by someone. To me, such an award signifies a renewed hope of being heard by the people who hold authority over my existence as a mother – this award symbolizes a chance left for justice to be seen by Boo’s very own eyes. This award re-inspires me to carry on with my grueling task at hand.
What a surprisingly priceless side-effect of a very spirited blogger’s kind gesture! Again, thank you “Die Trying” for being such an inspiration from afar – you truly shine like the brightest star! <3

So…I’ve been nominated for the Liebster Award by one of my favorite readers/bloggers Jodi over at


(Apparently, this award is a virally transmitted blog version of the old-school and long-forgotten postal chain letter – to be perpetually passed along from current “winners” to future nominees)

Nobody really wins any trophy or fluffy, starched-ribbon badges to pin up anywhere; the celebration attached to this award sings the praises of discovering others within the blogging community, and in turn – helping those with whom you can relate and appreciate to be discovered by additional readers as well. This is an award about recognition for the little things that add up to a big thing, given the right material and efforts.

As a warning of possible confusion, FYI: the next few posts will be my responses to specific questions posed by the reader who’s awarded my blog, as well as my own handful of nominations for this award. My purpose for participating in this gig is borne in the spirit of writing and reading, and being human with other humans who can appreciate the worth of these crafted gifts. I don’t know about anyone else, but my blog keeps me sane; shit, the practice of writing my words keeps me the sanest I can be, truly. So, yeah – go my blog!
