#80 /100 Reasons I Blog4Peace /The Pen is Mighty

The Pen is mightier than the sword .... 
I heard that a lot as a child ? I remember my Grandma telling me when I was just maybe 8 or 9 years old steaming mad .
" If you are angry at someone write them a letter and tell them Exactly what you think ... then Read it and tear it up. 
Rewrite it , then read it again . If you still feel like giving it, okay." The second version always turned out calmer or not worth writing at all ! I do remember having to write a third version one time before I could calm down enough but Can't remember what made me that angry? 
She also was the Queen of passive Resistance . She called it ,
" killing 'em with kindness."  
She had a way of making someone embarrassed that they acted the way they did without ever saying a soar word or raising her voice. 
The first time I remember Racialism is watching the local news and seeing my Grandma crying seeing a cross burning in a yard in a nearby town...I thought at first it was because someone would Actually burn a cross even at a mere 4or 5 I knew that symbol was important to her . But then I still remember her saying "those Poor poor People" what do you mean Grandma? Then she went on to try to explain the terrible truth to a little child , "that a black family tried to move in to an area and mean people were trying to make them leave ... " 
As I got older I realized that she was a great hero for me .That she was always fighting for the underdog and saw people for "Who they were not What " as she said.
I started writing poetry as a way to express my thoughts from that little lesson from my Grandma and from that I wrote my thoughts down most of my life good , bad happy and sad .Now I blog . 
So I dedicate this Blog to my Grandmother Luizia George born 3-27-1907 and went to heaven on 9-25-1972 . I never met my grandfather he died in 1958.
the blonde is my Mom ,Grandma behind her Granddad John and all seven children.
Luizia and James Edward her son.





now this is a trip I was looking for pictures about "The pen mightier than the sword" ? Then I found this Smart  Pen . That should help a Blogger to get on top of things ! That is if the blogger is more tech savvy than me !

I am thinking about making a picture that said 
" Blogs cover more space than bombs " 


Well that is enough for today .
Peace and Blessings to you all.
