Underground Library Society

Thank you to Robbie Cheadle for her post on 1984 by George Orwell. With this entry, Robbie has joined the U. L. s., the Underground Library Society, dedicated to opposing book censorship and book banning. Please visit her blog Robbie’s inspiration .

If a society similar to that depicted in Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury were to somehow come into existence and all books were banned, I would want to be part of any group involved in preserving books. If that meant learning a book off by heart, I would be prepared to do that. The big question for me would be what book to choose.

Out of all the wonderful and amazing books out there, my choice is 1984 by George Orwell. My over view of this book and my reasons as to why I believe it is still relevant to us are as follows:

The Walk

No one can put you in a corner.

It will come the moment,
that you will stand up strongly
and walk out from that dark tunnel
and finally face the light.

You would be trembling
you would be afraid
this walk seems so long…

you would be gasping
you would be tired
but you will be stronger step after step.

The immense love you have inside, will hold your hand tight,
your beautiful soul will lead your way to the light,
your courage will bring you out

you will be proud
You will be free
the Savior would be there to hold you always.

The Abuse Expose' with Secret Angel

Image result for emotional abuse

For October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I will be writing and sharing postings about abuse and it’s damage.  I encourage each of you to notice the warning signs and report abuse!

Various abuses…
are treated with a shrug…
as many ignore the warning signs…
like dirt pushed under a rug.
For if you don’t see it…
then you can pretend it’s not there…
but in it’s aftermath…
it appears you really didn’t care.
