Missing Teen

A close friend of mine asked that this runaway poster be shared.

She said: I am urging my friends to repost this. This is not a hoax. Corinne is the neighbor of a friend of mine. You may not have seen her, but one of your face book friends or their friends may have seen her. Keep passing this along. SOMEBODY must know where she is.

** Update** As of Saturday, February 18, 2012 - 12:35 Pacific Standard time.....they found her. She is at home.

In Stone

A friend shared this via email and thought the message was worth sharing here...

Two friends were walking
through the desert.
During some point of the
journey, they had an
argument; and one friend
slapped the other one
in the face.

The one who got slapped
was hurt, but without
saying anything,
wrote in the sand ,

Today my best friend
slapped me in the face .

They kept on walking,
until they found an oasis,
where they decided
to take a bath.

The one who had been
slapped got stuck in the
mire and started drowning,
but the friend saved him.

After he recovered from
the near drowning,
he wrote
on a stone:

'Today my best friend
saved my life.'

The friend who had slapped
and saved his best friend
asked him, 'after i hurt you,
you wrote in the sand and now,
you write on a stone, why?'

The friend replied,
'when someone hurts us
we should write it down
in sand, where winds of
forgiveness can erase it away.

But, when someone does something good for us,
we must engrave it in stone
where no wind
can ever erase it'

Learn to write
your hurts in
the sand and to
carve your
benefits in stone.
