#NeverAgain

#RedRoseSeptember I‘m always in awe and complete admiration when a survivor of any unspeakable horror is able to acknowledge that despite the trauma and hell they‘ve been through, they still see the hope and beauty that exists in this world. A reminder to each of us, every day is a blessing 🙏🏻#WonderfulLife The Choice is still on my TBR and I‘ve read Viktor Frankl‘s powerful manifesto. #NeverAgain #NeverForget

TrishB Lovely post ♥️ 1mo
Cinfhen @TrishB My guests are leaving this morning for a few days. They‘ll be back Thursday😆but today I‘m reading the book you sent me.... 1mo

TrishB He is certainly one of those people you are talking about 💕 1mo
Cinfhen So I‘ll make sure to have tissues handy @TrishB 1mo
Cinfhen ❣️❣️❣️❣️ @erzascarletbookgasm @Megabooks I was being sort of “difficult” the other day, complaining to hubs about how much “work” it is to prepare for company and then I thought, how lucky am I that I‘m able to offer food and shelter to friends and I get to spend quality time with them. It‘s all about attitude readjustment. I went from being resentful to grateful and it made such a difference. 1mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I‘ve definitely been pulling a lot of breathing in “bad thing” breathing out gratitude for all I have to fix what‘s wrong in my life. Other people definitely have it worse! 1mo
Cinfhen @Megabooks perspective is vital ♥️sending you positive vibes xx 1mo
Dragonfairykats @Megabooks Never think your problems are "less" than someone else's! All of our situations are unique, and what we're going through is as important as the next person. Your pain is big to you, and, because all our situations are different, cannot be compared to others' pain. I've had to learn that God can handle everyone's problems & none are less or more important than another. The way we react to our issues definitely influences how we feel. ⬇️ 1mo
Dragonfairykats Sending love and happiness to those in need! 💗 1mo
Cinfhen Agreed @Dragonfairykats well said xx 1mo
Megabooks @Dragonfairykats Definitely well said! I am grateful for the advantages I do have, but you‘re right that my problems are real. Thank you for the love! 1mo
gradcat Oh, my heart—I love the Frankl book! Nice post! ♥️♥️ 1mo
Cinfhen @gradcat 😘😘 1mo

#RedRoseSeptember

(Day 9 - #NeverForget)

*No collage—just a memoirist & his book. I spent about 90% of my doctoral study on this subject, and the constant refrain is “Never Forget.” ‘Nuff said, imho.

Cinfhen Thank you for highlighting the man and his memoir #NeverAgain #NeverForget 💔 1mo
arlenefinnigan This is a heartbreaking read, but so worth it. 1mo

#RedRoseSeptember #NeverForget #NeverAgain Two stories of resilience and survival, both from my #TBR Both sound incredible!

Cinfhen @Hollie have you read either of these books??? I bet you have a few good memoirs to suggest. #Holocaust #WWII 1mo
arlenefinnigan Excellent ❤️ 1mo
Hollie @Cinfhen I have not, but I need to! 1mo

Thirteen years ago, I went to #Rwanda. It‘s such a wonderful place, and they continue to rise from their past. I knew a little bit about what went on there but not a lot. I read the first few pages of this book and got horrifying chills. I bought my own copy later...still haven‘t finished it. May God forgive us for what happened here, and may it never happen again.

Aaandd that‘s a wrap for #Booked2019 #Spring, let‘s never leave a season so late again 😂

Not a “light” season but a completed one. Ness (#CliFi ) was the weirdest by far, Metal (#FeaturesaMusician ) the most intellectually interesting. Mai Tai (#FoodorBeverageonCover) was the weakest. Talking to my Country (#IndigenousAuthor) dovetailed into I am a Troll (#SocialMediaFocus) and both, terrifyingly seemed to run into Night (#NightOrientedTitle).

Cinfhen Bring on summer 💛🌞🌈🌴 4mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen agreed. I‘m still finding it difficult to really pin down all my thoughts on Night but I am impressed at how many of us chose it for this prompt. 4mo

Cinfhen I was glad to see that number as well!!! My neighbor is literally Elie Wiesel‘s nephew!!!! How cool is that??? 4mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen woah! Now *thats* a lineage!!!!!! I hope he‘s lovely!!!! 4mo
Cinfhen He‘s brilliant!!! He‘s a neurosurgeon and the nicest sweetest guy. Fabulous neighbor & good looking too😉 4mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen wow! That‘s a complete package!! 😂😂😂😂 4mo
Cinfhen And did I mention he׳s recently divorced 😜 4mo
GlassAsDiamonds @Cinfhen Divorced you say.... 🤔🤔🤔🤔 At 3am this morning I discovered that Mr GaD had gone to bed while I was still reading and turned off the hot water heater, leaving me to either stay awake for 30min longer while it heated up to “barely warm” or have a cold shower. Cute neighbour and I may shortly have one more thing in common 😡😡😡😡😡 4mo
Cinfhen Ugh!! The hot water heater is the bain of my existence but only in the winter months😂😂but I totally get it 4mo

Yesterday and today‘s #labsoundtrack - I haven‘t read Columbine yet but it‘s on my TBR. I‘m taking this one slowly as it‘s emotionally heavy and I can‘t cry too much in the lab. #neveragain

4.5/5⭐ Everything a book about the Holocaust should be: brutal and important. Appropriately, I finished this book about the necessity of remembering today on #YomHaShoah, #HolocaustRemembranceDay.
