Embrace (poetic thought by George-B)
“We never let go from our embrace –
I did not want to be the one,
the one to break the bliss.
So on we kept and even now
we’re still engaged in the first hug…”
The dream of youth,
the dream of love,
that life has built inside us
to cherish rather than to mourn
that we have missed,
today and days to come.
One’s lost cause today, will become many others’lost causes Tomorrow!

“Demons run when a good man goes to war
Night will fall and drown the sun
When a good man goes to war
Friendship dies and true love lies
Night will fall and the dark will rise
When a good man goes to war
Demons run, but count the cost
The battle’s won, but the child is lost”
“Running away with a Spaceman in a box, anything could happen to you…”
“That’s what I’m counting on.”
“I’m the Doctor. I’m an alien from outer space. I’m a thousand years old, I’ve got two hearts, and I can’t fly a plane!”
“Right then, Clara Oswald. Time to find out who you are…!”

On his 38th birthday, Montaigne retreated to his library in a tower of his family’s French château, and there he spent most of the next decade thinking, reading, and writing. The result wasEssais, or Attempts, a series of short prose reflections on many subjects that form one of the most captivating and intimate self-portraits ever written. Montaigne’s Essais established the essay as a literary form. What personal tragedy may have prompted Montaigne to begin writing? More… Discuss

Founded in 1949 by the US, Canada, and 10 European countries as a security pact against the Soviet bloc, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization did not actually perform any military operations for its first 45 years in existence. With the fall of the Soviet Union, however, its focus shifted to regional peacekeeping—and thus, in 1994, NATO forces took action in the Bosnian War. After the September 11 attacks, NATO invoked Article 5 of its charter for the first time in history. What is Article 5? More…Discuss

It is well known that the psychological effects of bullying can persist for years, but just how long may surprise you. A recent study found that people who experienced bullying between the ages of nine and 16 were at higher risk for a range of psychiatric conditions, including depression, anxiety, and panic disorder, well into their 20s. Most affected were bully-victims, persons who had been victimized by bullies and who had themselves bullied others. Researchers say these long-term consequences highlight the serious nature of bullying and the importance of finding ways to prevent it. More...Discuss
