Sadako Sasaki and All Children Affected By War


As I write my 2nd writing project, a fictional story with Sadako Sasaki and all children affected by war in mind, I reflect on how precious life is and the innocence of every child. I think of my two-year-old niece Elyse and four-month-old niece Sophie. I can’t help but feel sad inside.

On August 6, 1945, the United States dropped the atomic bomb on Hiroshima city when Sadako Sasaki was only two years old. She was blown out of the window of her home, and her mother found her lying on the ground. Her mother helped her and her four-year-old brother flee to a nearby river to escape the fire, where they huddled together as the “black rain” poured on them, the residual radioactive material that was propelled into the upper atmosphere following the nuclear blast and fell out of the sky with rain water after the shockwave. When Sadako was twelve years old, she was diagnosed with leukemia as a result of the bomb’s radiation. With determination to live, she folded paper cranes, but sadly the disease took her away.

I dedicate the song below called “Tracking Aeroplanes” by The Echelon Effect to all the children suffering or taken away to soon by war. The music expresses the deep feelings that I have inside. I feel so fortunate to be able to live this long, and to be able to play a small role in making this world better for the little ones.

Sadako Sasaki.

The Best of Me


I just finished reading Nicholas Sparks’ novel “The Best of Me.” Like “The Notebook,” the last several chapters were my favorite part. This story was interesting in that a romance between Dawson and Amanda was rekindled 25 years later from the time they first fell in love as teens. Dawson remained single, whereas, Amanda was married with three children. There were some very sad moments, but in the end, some good came out of tragedy.

I Still Miss You.


When we fall in love, we present the best of ourselves. In time, our faults are revealed. Sometimes, these faults cause a separation. However, if we have an open heart, we will always see the good in those we loved, and even remain friends with them. Every so often, when we close our eyes and go back in time, the good times play back, and we can’t help but miss them.

The song “City of Dreams” by Dirty South & Alesso featuring Ruben Haze below represents the feelings I wrote in this post. When you watch it, you can appreciate the hard work that EDM DJs/Producers put into their songs and that’s why my business partners and I enjoy showcasing them at our events.
