From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity. – Edvard Munch
It’s 9: 18 PM on day 234 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a boiled egg for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign – no luck – watch TV, feed myself rice and curry for lunch, continue reading A Purloined Life – the first of two books in Stella Cameron‘s Charmed – feed myself boiled green banana with a yoghurt and onion dip for dinner and tweet about my campaign – still no luck damn it I wish everyone would pitch in seeing as we’re all in this together.
Today started out like any other day until Christine – someone I didn’t even know – sent me a message telling me that Brannan – the little boy I wrote a post about yesterday – had passed away and in that moment I couldn’t stop the tears but after about fifteen minutes I dried my eyes and started thinking about ways to honour Brennan’s life which is when I came up with Brannan’s Pledge – our promise to end all forms of discrimination.

if you’ve given to my cause or you can’t give now, please help me by sharing my cause with others. You can tweet about it like my friend Stan Faryna.

Please help her do an amazing thing. http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/nisha-varghese/nishavarghese
Stan’s very sweet for saying so, but feel free to write what reflects you best.
Thanks to all my friends out there who are helping me make my dream come true: to make a better world for all of us!
