Without Wicked Toys ~~~~~ Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength, Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment When life is hard, we’re all still together. When we choose to be; when we gather. So many things in life in need of repair; Sure no one can help us, or so we swear. Under the stress, strain, […]

See more of my creative offerings and opinions […]
