Ordinary World (update)


The object of giving medals, stars and ribbons is to give pride and pleasure to those who have deserved them. 

At the same time a distinction is something which everybody does not possess. 

If all have it it is of less value. 

There must, therefore, be heartburnings and disappointments on the border line. 

A medal glitters, but it also casts a shadow. 

The task of drawing up regulations for such awards is one which does not admit of a perfect solution. 

It is not possible to satisfy everybody without running the risk of satisfying nobody.

All that is possible is to give the greatest satisfaction to the greatest number and to hurt the feelings of the fewest.

- Winston Churchill, 22 March 1944

There are times when the world is filled with darkness, so that we can appreciate more of what glitters, I guess. 
Life glitters, and it also casts a shadow

But I won't cry for yesterday
There's an ordinary world
somehow I have to find
And as I try to make my way
To the ordinary world
I will learn to survive.

3-legged Kitten Adopted by 2-year-old Amputee Share a Special Connection

A three-legged kitten was adopted by a family with a 2-year-old girl, Scarlette, who is also an amputee herself. When they first met, they connected as if they understood each other.
Scarlette is a very brave little girl who has beat a rare form of cancer though her left arm was left amputated. She absolutely adores cats. “We wanted a little kitten to have her grow up with, so she has something that’s just like her,” Simone Tipton told Love Meow. They spent half a year looking for a three-legged kitty to join their family and just before Christmas they found her!
