Catching Fire, the second film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy (a trilogy which, true to their current style, Hollywood is adapting into four films), arrives on screen with the confidence of a film that knows it’s going to gross a bajillion dollars. It is a brisk, exciting, well-acted entertainment, and those elements, in addition to the built-in audience of Collins’ voracious readers, are the most logical explanation for the franchise’s massive popularity.
Do forgive other people who wronged or hurt you not just because they deserve to be forgiven but because you deserve peace, an ocean of love brewing within you forever and a forward-ever forceful shot at greatness someday in life.
Do this real good and you become not just a gorgeous survivor or one who rose above the ills and the lows but an ultimate winner for life!

The world has welcomed another batch of Nobel Laureates for accomplishments in the sciences, literature, and global peace. But there is another prize, perhaps just as important, for which there was no winner.
We are talking about the Mo Ibrahim Prize, established by the Sudanese billionaire Mo Ibrahim.
PRISONERS AND SLAVES
You are most certainly A PRISONER and A SLAVE; HUGE SLAVE (OF THE MIND AND SOUL most times) if you are persuaded OR forced to date OR marry another person rather than the one you LOVE or your chosen one because of tribe, state, nation, race, a few years gap, class, denomination or religion.
I cannot stand tribalism or ethnicity or cultural crap or religious hullabaloos.
I never ever did stand it and speak against trash like that since childhood.
We all can’t be the same or have same mindset and outlook in life but think about it…
Think about what you did then or about to do before you shut a door to your ‘paradise’
Think deep before you let that choice go and submit to prison
and invisible chains of slavery.
If you let go, the chosen one or that true love will free you!!!
They may plead and fight for you but for how long?
Why push the human limits?
Sometimes, you are even persuaded and enslaved not human beings but your own doubts, phobia and fear within.
Make your choices, weigh, reflect and go with it.
Be responsible for your actions whether it works or not.
Hold on to that one person that you love most and value most.
Love in it’s trueness and wholeness rules.
That true love in which I strongly believe in
rules and rules along with the components it is made of.
Hold on to that one person especially if they are not ready to let you go.
Folks, hold on and be strong.
Forget what people will say if it didn’t work.
People will always say many things if it works.
People will always talk about you.
Talk is cheap.
Cheaper and available like air.
Why so weak?
Even the dead people are sometimes talked about.
Why care about people really?
Life is lived each day till it’s no more.
Dead and buried.
Deeply, six feet under.
There’s never really a one way route or road in dealing with life issues.
You don’t know the future in years to come
Or if you will wake up alive tomorrow.
So why the hell would you;
some of you choose to be a prisoner or slave to fears and doubts within or family, man-made woes and societal/social constructions.
Learn. Unlearn. Relearn.
The world and the future is your oyster.

Earlier, we supplied lyrics and liner notes for Jackie Evancho's CD album Songs from the Silver Screen (2012). Here we turn to Jackie's earlier album, Dream With Me (2011).
At the Christmas Eve service I attended, a twelve-year-old girl sang a carol. She did exceptionally well, for a twelve-year-old. She was poised and sincere, she clearly enunciated the lyrics. But still she sounded as we might expect someone her age to sound.
While Italian football club Internazionale acquired new owners last week, there were also profound changes going on at city rival AC Milan.
The club that has won the Italian league 18 times and the European Champions League seven times is rethinking its youth structure’s organization -- in future, Milan officials hope to tap in to the power of the brain.
If someone or certain people mean the world to you and you LOVE and VALUE them, you will not only reciprocate and/or keep in touch (not just limiting it through the ‘cheap bubble gum, easy-peasy-lazy’ means of social media and any form of tech-chats) but MOSTLY to hold on to them, seek or search for them and keep them for life.
Tomorrow is always pregnant!!!
One day, you will know a lot. All days, some will never know. Some will never get it or not ‘want’ to.
At times, you deal loved ones the sugar coated or worse still, the acrid, fermented, acidic left over trash, cold food half cooked and minus the approximate half of the average calculation of a half hearted cooking and a dead, cold shoulder, pushing them to their stretched, broken human limits; up against the brick wall-then they hold their heads high, quit showing so much care even if they still do care and flee.
Flee, flee, flee!
Yet, preferences matter and can’t exactly be blamed or anyone have love, value and friendship forced in life.
No, it can’t.
For it to be true, it can’t and shouldn’t be forced.
No contesting that.
Well, tomorrow remains the ever pregnant one.
Ever ending birthing.
So you see, today rolls on and you lay in the silky or furry, smooth bed of life’s goodies with chosen buddies and you dish out ashes to those who love you and care about you.
Tomorrow, weeks or years later, life puts them at a better place. A better place with worthier people; thankfully without you.
Can you tell or guarantee tomorrow?
Karma often courts silently.
It has it’s own phone and address book contacts.
What a world.
Ofu ugbosi, o ga eme ufodu ndi mmadu VOOM NA ANYA.
Like said above-
One day, things will shock people and scales fallen off the eyes.
Seeing again anew like one blinded.
