Thank you to Half-EatenMind for nominating me for this award, which I created to celebrate those who promote peace, light and understanding in the world. You are yourself very deserving and I loved your description of the award. Your words touch my heart, and say it better than I did in the first place, so I am reproducing them here:
Barbara created the LITWA to celebrate those wonderful people in our world who spread light, love, hope and peace in the name of humanity. Bloggers receiving this award are encouraged to continue promoting these virtues and work as a force of peace and light in the world, touching their readers’ hearts and making a difference in their lives, no matter how small. The award has as its background a scene of a beach taken at sunset with holidaymakers enjoying themselves. This picture was taken by Barbara herself. Just as the Sun in the picture brings light and sustenance to the Earth and is the reason why any living thing can exist on our planet in the first place, the LITWA is a gift to those bloggers who help shine the light into other people’s worlds, giving them sustenance, hope and happiness through the venerable dialogue of blogging.
My rules for this award were simple:
1.Thank the person who gives you the award
2.Spread this award around to the people who you know who are doing this work, so that the work continues and the light is spread
3.Let your nominees know
4.Never give up on your fellow human beings
