Worst Case Scenario

Todays Daily Prompt:

Of all the awful possibilities, what’s the worst possible thing that could happen to you today?

Last month I worked for UNICEF for about a week, during my short time with them I took on board some truly shocking but in some ways also empowering facts. Facts that I think we’ve all heard at some time or another, but tend not to penetrate or take much lasting effect, but when working to turn them around they become much more real, part of your day to day life, this tumblr post illustrates them nicely.

And todays Daily Post prompt lead me to talk about this because it made me think as a member of the relatively small number of privileged people in this world, what IS the worst that could happen to me today? It’s incomparable to the majority of people in this world that are struggling to even stay alive. 


Reason to Believe

In my venture to getting into blogging I have also come across The Daily Post WordPress site that amongst other things, offers daily prompts that you can take part in, so I thought why not?… 

Todays prompt is:


Reason to Believe

In Reason to Believe,, Bruce Springsteen sings, At the end of every hard-earned day / people find some reason to believe. What’s your reason to believe?

I think this is a great opportunity to talk about a movie that I am looking forward to seeing, hopefully this month. It’s about a four year old boy that has a near death experience while undergoing emergency surgery. Months after he starts talking about people and events that would be impossible for him to have known about. It looks to be a compelling, thought provoking story made for the big screen, and hopefully a strong reason to believe.
