44 Truckloads Of Food And Medicine Delivered To Madaya On Monday


According to TheGuardian.com 44 truckloads of food and medicine were delivered to Madaya on Monday. Each family got sugar, 10kg of rice, hummus, green beans, two cans of tomato paste, six cans of beans and salt. Of course, we all know that this is only a lifesaving temporary fix until these people can be extricated from this remote area, but volunteers say that the families are more grateful than they can believe.

Please continue to help if you can.

Please go the the International Red Cross Website to donate anything that you can. Not only are the adult people of Madaya starving, but so are the children STARVING to death. Please go to the International Red Cross website and donate what you can. This is a travesty to the people caused by their own government! Nobody deserves to be deliberately starved to death, Please help these people. Click Here To read about the crisis and to donate. International Red Cross

While waiting for a possible food delivery on Sunday or Monday, the children in Madaya are being forced to eat leaves and shrubs. Some of them haven't seen enough to eat since last October.

I'm sending positive thoughts to the aid workers that will be passing through some dangerous zones where they may be robbed of the goods that they intend to deliver. THANK YOU.

Make It A Resolution To Listen To More Music


Music has always been my place to go to sort things out. I play music when I'm cooking, working, driving, and relaxing. There's no doubt that it helps me to relax.

Recent studies have shown that music is used in modern healing, pain relief, and anxiety because of it's endorphin releasing effect.

According to an article written by Denise Dador or KABC Los Angeles, hospitals are taking the healing properties of music right to the patients.

A bariatric surgeon and musician, Dr Peter Crookes claims that a portion of healing is up to the patient and that music can be helpful. Music may release endorphins that is one of the elements of pain relief. He claims that anything that will open the mind to other dimensions of life can help in coping.

USC has a volunteer program that works with the benefits of listening to music. The program is run by Jane Kim, a musician herself. If you are interested in this program, you can email musichealsgroup@gmail.com
