Sheena's short escapade frm the horrors of it all...

News on the war and all the terrible things happening around us is just too scary. I have now chosen to ignore any forms of news. It’s just too depressing, really. It’s not that I want to actually fully ignore it; I just don’t know what to do, how to help or how to make a difference. I’m angry. I’m sad. So this sadness and anger had made me retrieve into my own world of make-believe fiction. I read. Yes, in times like this, I read.

Its weird though, as I try to run away from the haunting news about war and hunger and abuse and poverty and all other nonsensical things, the book I chose to read or as u can call it “my escape”, is about all that.

Title: goodnight, beautiful

Author: Dorothy Koomson

This really good book is all about family, love, friendship, loyalty, lust and betrayal. I wept as I turned the pages; I finished the book in a day. Incredible. The next one I started on after was on the subjects of family, abandonment, abuse and betrayal.

Title: Mummy’s Little Girl
Author: Jane Elliott

A little girl who’s abandoned at birth, abused and forced into child-prostitution. I didn’t cry though many I know would. I just couldn’t. I don’t know why. But tears did well up and my heart twitched a little… You have a go at it and you tell me. Yeah, i think of this little girl alot when i hear the song; Love for a child by Jason Mraz.
