This week in History

Today in history; 1939 Germany invaded Poland.  In 1989, democratic rule was re-established in Poland.

Also, this past Wednesday marked the 50th Anniversary of the Civil Rights Freedom March (1963) on Washington, D.C., U.S.A., where Dr. Martin Luther King, J.R. delivered his "I have a dream" speech.

To all of my brothers and sisters across the globe who have endured oppression, bullying, or were made to feel less than another in any way... I wish to re-live this moment in history with you:

Thank you to all who have struggled, marched, protested and died for the freedoms that we now know in this world. And, to each of you who continue to march, struggle, protest, and will sacrifice yourselves for the freedom that we will know in the future, I give to you the highest respect and honor. 

Happy September everyone!!!

A new thing.

Thank you for joining us as we launch our first blog. There is something very exciting about blogging of one's adventures in life and being able to share them with family, friends, and the world at large. The number one adventure of my every day is being a mom, which we know comes with a load of it's own challenges, but, the exciting aspect of this blog for me personally, is doing "mom" with all my might while experiencing the world with it's many journeys that are just laying in wait for us to embark upon.

 It has always been a dream of mine to see as many new places as I can, to meet people not only from my adjacent neighborhoods, but also to try and learn to speak as many languages as I can, to see first-hand how people live, eat, drink, commute, and socialize in other countries other than just my own. I want to watch how the sun rises and sets upon other cities at a different time than I know it is rising and setting where I live in Los Angeles. And, the very best part is having my girls by my side, enjoying themselves, and experiencing the world together.

This blog site will have posts from two moms, sharing our experiences from two different cultural perspectives which will make each post twice as exciting!!! I hope that you all will enjoy these posts as much as we will enjoy posting them.

We want to hear from you!
Share with us something that you have always wanted to try. Have you yet done it? If no, what do you think stands in the way of you reaching your goal?
