Day 234


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.

Are we connecting on Twitter? If not, say hi at http://www.twitter.com/nisha360

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. This is the tweet he uses: @Nisha360 is a brave, smart young woman trying to make a better world for us all. 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!

  1. Nisha, it’s very difficult to put into words, it’s very moving and it really touches a person, you’re a phenomenal young woman, I pray you reach all your goals.

  2. We must obey God rather than men. Acts 5:29

  3. In faith, we can make wonderful assumptions. That Brannan continues, for example. He may (or may not) shine in your or my memory. But he shines forever now – like do the stars.

  4. I know that Brennan continues both in all of us he touched and in the stars. I have this great image in my head of Brennan sitting in God’s lap which makes his death a little easier to swallow.

    Yours truly,
    Nisha
