Now these are the real issues people should talk about right now…


Exactly. Starbucks cups? Really right now?

Sophie Speaks Up

There were terrorist attacks in Paris, suicide bombings in Beirut and Baghdad, and all of these happened in just one day. The least I can do is to pray for them and let you all know that instead of debating over cups, there are other problems in the world that are more important and we should be aware of them. Hundreds of lives were taken. This is something we can’t just ignore. This is the real “war” we should be talking about.

400 Follows and International Support

As I approach a potential 400 subscribers (aka followers of this blog), I can only maintain the excitement that out of 400 people I am at least reaching one of you (it is my hope). I still remember when I got my first 100. It was very exciting and I told myself I would not shout from the rooftops until I reached at least 400. And as I look over the map of the locations of some of you with 3 followers short of my mini goal, I cannot help but notice something even more exciting than that: International Support.

I’ve only been blogging at this address for about 7 months. And as I continue to learn about blogging itself, about you and your interest and about how I can be of service, of friendship, and of inspiration, one of the many exciting things about Blogging is the ability to reach people across the globe. It is one of the many advantages of the internet and increase in technology. While there are many things that excite us about our writing endeavors, I especially enjoy the International views that I get from those of you across the water. I also think it is something we underestimate on a general scale. That is, the world is much bigger than the U.S.

So without further ado I would just like to take the time to thank those of you from:

Germany, Australia, France, and the UK.

Do you live outside the U.S.? Where are you from? I would love to know! Comment below!
