These are some of the awards I've given at Writing.Com.
|I believe that all mankind are brothers. It does not matter, color, race, religion, sexual preference, or country... We are all Terrans, and as such we must learn to live together in peace, acceptance, and understanding.
I have given most of my awards because someone manifested such a philosophy. I believe that pieces like these make the world a better place.
Please pray for peace, love your fellow man, and read one of these wonderful selections. Together we can make a difference.

Andrea has written a beautiful folder full of love.
She has a story of sadness when one of a couple dies and the other is left, she has a beautiful vision of rainbows, a best friend who is a cow, and then, my favorite, her tale of her own heart which is a must read.
The following is a web-site that is stupendous. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. has always been my hero. A man who worshipped peace and who envisioned a world where all people were brothers and sisters -- that's my world, please. That's what I want. Thank you, Dr. King for moving us forward toward that dream!
Because of its beauty, I gave her a Merit Badge: Thank you for the wondrous site you constructed, Nordette.
Harry writes beautiful poetry. He has a book of poems that has recently been published, and I am the recipient of an autographed copy of it.
But all that has nothing to do with the awardicon I gave him on this piece. He has illustrated so well my thoughts on world peace. He has given me hope in a sometimes bleak world.
Sometimes, the breath gets knocked out of us because something is so beautiful that it brings tears and ahs. The following pieces have that special element of beauty. I couldn't help adding them to my awards!
Another addition of excellence is for a filefolder of artwork with a piece called "Details, Darling" that left me overwhelmed with the artist's originality and talent. Check it out. This and and the other pieces are pretty incredible!
Another award is for the following beautiful Christmas story. I can see the tree and the love in his family. As it says, this one took my breath away:
This award is for a piece that spoke to me. It vibrated my soul. Mistakes are to be learned from, or we repeat them over and over. And whatever the path, it is God's path.
This story made me believe again. It is fantasy at its purist! Bravo!
Ah, this is a poem that really riveted me. I couldn't stop reading it. I love the power of its common sense, the way it meanders. I want to write poetry like this, free and full of delightful cookie crumbs!
Here is a piece that gives me hope. Like a precious flower, it offers beauty in its simplicity. Let us cross our fingers that inside it lies the element of truth. I don't want things in the USA to get this bad, but a solution where we work together to obtain a better world -- that's my cup of tea.
This award was given to a lady who really loves to teach! She not only organizes herself with lessons weeks in advance but corrects writing tasks and drives us steadily forward in our endeavor to master verbs. This award is to say thank you and to clap for her dedication and for all of her HARD work.
The following award inspired me on a somewhat cloudy day. It is so nice to see fragments of sanity lying about. Thank you for the quote and for the wonderful First People's Commandments. What an excellent piece to carry in one's mind, heart, and soul.
Awarding pieces on the Writer's Cramp, as I do most weekends, I came across the following tale. Remember this was a 24 hour/1,000 piece or less. I found this piece to be a delight!
Another piece that really tickled my funny bones, and had just the right touches of funny aliens and humor with intelligence.
Another Writer's Cramp piece that really inspired me: It only takes a moment to smile, to hug, to kiss, to offer a kindness. And any of those CAN change a life. Thank you for the reminder.
That's all for now. I shall keep prowling for more.
There have been many others, but some people have deleted their stories/poems. I miss the beauty of their pieces, but hope their work is being sent off so even more people can appreciate them.
