  1. I am M.P.’s mother. He would have turned 16 in December. On Sept. 15, the first day of school, he went to the fourth floor of the school building and jumped. He died on Sept. 25. We have lost an intelligent boy who was full of ideas, poetry and love. This inexplicable act leaves us stunned and silent. In my infinite sorrow I find a little consolation in reading his thoughts here ... thanks to those who have shared them with him.

      I am so sorry for your loss, you have my deepest and sincerest sympathy. I will always be grateful that your son wanted to share his thoughts and ideas here with us in this community.

  2. Today a U.S. reporter was killed by ISIS fighters. Let's hope this madness will finish.

  4. Today a Malaysian Airlines Boeing 777 was hit by a surface-to-air missile and crashed in Ukraine. 295 people died. I hope justice will be done.

      And Israel just announced that they will send troops into Gaza. What a shit day!

      Indeed... If Ukrain troops or pro-Russia forces hit the plane was an accident, Israel sent troops to Gaza on purpose.

  5. It seems to me that we all look at Nature too much, and live with her too little. Oscar Wilde

      And now it seems we aren't even looking at nature enough!

      Ironic, if I think to the reaction of Oscar Wilde today...

  6. China may struggle to cut carbon emissions to levels that prevent the worst effects of global warming. I hope so!
