Aspire, struggle and endeavour  Take your destiny in your own hands
Belief is all that’s wanted.  An attempt is all that’s required
Because anything is possible!

Basics of investments

This post comes courtesy my husband who likes to read a lot about investments and financial planning. He says:
If you're satisfied with living on a paycheck that simply covers your present day expenses , then you need to change your financial attitude immediately.  This is one of the many ways to ensure that in your old-age, you will be living on hard times. 
Old-age benefits, pensions , etc. cannot support your current lifestyle in the future. Even if you are saving up cash now, keep in mind that inflation eats up the value of your money. A dollar tomorrow cannot buy the same things that a dollar today can, so simply saving cash will not do the trick.
Any excess money above and beyond the emergency fund should be invested so that the money goes to work for you and increases your wealth . When you invest, you spend money to acquire a thing of value, i.e an asset.
The different avenues of investing include: real-estate , shares/stocks, mutual funds, commodities, etc. Each investment can…

A poem dedicated to children of war hit zones in this world

Image credit:
The orphan sits on the pavement  His heart full of fear and woe  His parents were killed in the bombardment,  The bombardment of the bloody war.
The orphan sits on the pavement,  A locket hangs round his neck.  On the back is an inscription__  ‘With Love from Mum and Dad’.
The orphan sits on the pavement,  A beautiful picture in his mind.  The picture of his parents,  A likeness no one can find.
As the blue dome darkens  The street lights come to life.  He has no friends to go to  He knows not even strangers in his life.
The orphan sits on the pavement.  Happiness unknown to his heart.  His parents were killed in the bombardment.  The bombardment of that bloody war.
