Welcome to the “We are the World BlogFest” (#WATWB ). The #WATWB was inspired by a simple conversation about how all the negativity on social media was weighing on us. Wanting to make a difference, we decided to try to do our part to infuse social media with all the good stories that are out there. We hope to share the stories that show kindness, compassion, hope, overcoming challenges and in general, the impressive resilience of the human spirit. For every dark, negative story out there, there is a positive, heartwarming story that will add some light and lift the human spirit. #WATWB was started in 2017, this month marks our fifty-fifth opportunity to share positive uplifting stories to inspire, give hope and motivate others. This is our last post as sadly #WATWB is ending. I have enjoyed the experience in being part of such a positive project and one I will continue in my own way. The two co-hosts, this month are: myself,
Those who know me can tell you how passionate I am about sharing positive information for and about young people with disabilities and learning challenges also seniors who are still following their dreams despite their age and health.
I can relate to the story this month, as my longtime dream has always been that of writing for children with special needs, at times I must say I wonder if I am too old.
This story is about a 95-year-old man who has recently published his first children’s book which is a remarkable success and. he also has other book on the way. It just goes to show one is never too old to start over again. So, there is hope for me yet.
So, I will not give up and hopefully by the end of the year, I will be able to finish the books I am writing.
