With the events happening to my people this week in Canada, I will not be sharing from a book. I just do not have one that expresses what is happening or what we are feeling in my posession. I hope you understand.

Q:  Have you ever searched out theme songs for your favorite books?
A:  No.

  1. The news out of Canada is heartbreaking Freda. One of my good friends and colleagues does the same kind of law I do, working with adult survivors of childhood sexual abuse, but in Canada. He's represented hundreds of Indigenous survivors of abuse by Catholic priests in Newfoundland and Labrador. I've listened to him discuss this problem for years and it horrific. I do understand.

  2. Yes, the revelations are terrible. Such tragic news. However, now that the truth is coming to light won't there be a chance for others to FINALLY understand the horror and to gain some empathy? I pray it is so. How can we move forward otherwise? My Friday quotes are here

  3. So sorry about to hear what is going on in Canada right now!

  4. I have been so shocked and saddened by the news coming from Canada and the generational pain that must be echoing through the First Nations community. Completely understand that today is not the day for sharing fun quotes. I hope you're doing well considering everything and thank you for putting the post up regardless <3

  5. I'm so sorry for what is happening right now.

  6. 😂😂😂 I love your Blog Hop answer. It's the same as mine, though I did add some background to my answer. However it will ALWAYS be NO!

  7. I'm so saddened by the news coming out of Canada--this is so shocking. I hope that there will be some healing. Where I live in northern Maine--we are close to several First Nations communities and stand in solidarity. <3

  8. I echo the words of the others. So sorry about the children.

  9. My heart breaks for those children--and for your country. It's so heartbreaking. I can't help but wonder if there would be similar findings in the U.S. It would not surprise me, sadly. It all makes me so sad--and angry. Sending support and hugs your way, Freda.

    1. I'm under the impression American schools will also be searched. There are over 400 left between the US and Canada. It's heartbreaking. Thank you for the support.

Our heroes pull out all the stops to try and win the tournament, break the witch's hold on King Arthur, and find a way back to the present in this legendary story of Scooby Doo in King Arthur's Court. REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although

The Invisible Man

AVAILABLE TODAY! RATED R 125 MINUTES AMAZON What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would
